Money Spell For Your Inner Peace – And to Help Others

Hurricane Harvey has carved a path of devastation, leaving many people homeless and suffering. Several Wiccan friends have expressed their concern about not having money to make donations to ease the victims’ suffering.

If you’re enduring a financial hardship, here is a simple spell so you can send a blessing of energy in lieu of money.

With this Money Attraction Spell, you can create a “magickal check” (on virgin paper). The point is that you are using this magickal check as a symbol that will draw the energy of the Universe to the benefit of the victims of Hurricane Harvey’s devastation.

What you will need:

  • “Your Magickal Check” [you will write it up to appear like a regular check from your checkbook)
  • Money oil
  • Green candle
  • Candle holder
  • Quill
  • Dragon’s blood ink
  • Ritual tools
  • Cakes and Wine
  • Dragon’s blood incense

Cast Circle in the usual manner.

Cleanse and consecrate your candle and magickal check with your holy water. Charge the candle and magickal check with the dragon’s blood incense smoke. Dress your candle from wick to base with your money oil.

Dip your quill into the dragon’s blood ink to draw up your magickal check. Write down an amount of money that you want to go to a particular Hurricane Harvey-related charity.

Say:

This money to you
To help soothe all your woes.

Place the magickal check on your pentacle and put your hands on it. Concentrate on money flowing to the victims of the disaster. See them getting the vital things they need: fresh water, food, dry clothes and warm beds. Focus all of these thoughts into the magickal check.

Place the candle in the candle holder and set them on top of your magickal check.

Channel energy into the candle and magickal check. When you feel the candle and magickal check are charged to your liking, light the candle and chant:

Money, money go their way,
Help give comfort, save their day.
Money in and their suffering out,
Clean up this disaster all about.
Safety and kindness, will you give,
Let love, and human kindness live.
So swiftly go to all that need you,
End this pain, let the Gods be with you.

Make sure to let the candle burn all the way down until it is completely extinguished. (Be sure to avoid leaving a candle unattended, while it is burning.)

Do your Cakes and Wine Ceremony.

Close Circle.

May this ritual ease your heart and help the victims of Hurricane Harvey’s devastation.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Finding Moments for God and Goddess

“I got nothing,” my friend, Joe, said, as we were doing a comedy improvisation exercise.

“I got nothing” is the classic comment that a comedian says when he or she gets stuck and cannot add anything to a moment of improvisation.

Improvisation is on my mind because many of us, Wiccans, say that “we got nothing” in terms of “I don’t have time to do a ritual. I’m busy!”

Does this sound familiar? I have the same problem in my life, too. Finding the time to do a whole ritual may not be practical every day or even once a week. There is a solution: You can “steal moments” of your day for the Gods and for your own sanity.

For example, I grabbed my husband and said a quick prayer to the Gods that we would land a client. Tonight, it’s worked. The new person said, “Yes,” and we have a new client.

Take a Moment and Light a Candle

Light a candle as a way to thank the Gods. I light offerings often to thank the Gods for Their help.

Recite A Chant

Here’s a chant:

Thank you Lord and Lady for today.
May all good things come my way.

This doesn’t take long. Still, the effect can be profound. When you devote a moment to gratitude, it shifts your perception. Yes, you DO have things to be grateful for.

In summary, think of a quick prayer, lighting a candle or reciting a chant. These are some ways to “crowbar” in some time into your busy day.

It’s worth it!

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Where should I start practicing magick?

 

chimecandles

Working with candles provides a great way to ease into magick. Such work can be simple yet powerful. Wiccans often use Chime candles for spellwork. These candles are specifically used for candle magick. Although spellcasters can use other candles, I suggest that you start with Chime candles. You can find them in metaphysical shops or online.

So, once you have some Chime candles, you can use the color guide below to select a color that is appropriate for your spell.

(Here is an excerpt from my book The Hidden Children of the Goddess)

*****

Colors and Candle Magick

Let’s begin with the meanings of the different candle colors.

Note that the following list is not the final word on color. For instance, the color blue may have another meaning to you than the one listed here. Remember that your mind is your greatest tool. Trust your instincts when your feelings about a specific color differ from what others may advise you.

Here is a list of colors and a brief summary of their general attributes.

  • Red: sex, desire, vitality, strength
  • Orange: charm, confidence, joy, jealousy, persuasion
  • Yellow: intellectual development, joy, intellectual strength
  • Green: prosperity, abundance, fertility, money matters
  • Blue: healing, protection, spiritual development
  • Purple: the occult, power, magick
  • Pink: love, friendship, compassion
  • White: purity, innocence, peace, tranquility
  • Black: decrease, death, revenge, retribution, contacting the dead

Note: I strongly recommend that you never use a black candle. The exceptions are at Samhain or when talking to the dead. Remember the Law of Three [Avoid doing things that harm others].

A candle that has been used for a specific purpose should never be used for a different purpose. Also, it is preferable to burn down the candle all the way. Try to do this in one session. Otherwise, it is acceptable to use the same candle again—but only for the same spell.

*****

Charging Your Candle

After you choose the candle with an appropriate color, you will then cleanse and consecrate your candle.

(Here is an excerpt from my blog: GoddessHasYourBack.com)

  1. Using Holy Water

After Casting Circle, you hold the object and sprinkle holy water upon it (the process of  asperging). Say: I cleanse you by Earth and Water

  1. Using Smoke Arising from Incense

Waft the object through the smoke arising from Blessed Incense. By the way, wafting the object through smoke is the process of charging the object.

As you waft the object through smoke three times, say: I bless and consecrate you by Fire and Air

You have made the object suitable for use in your spellwork.

*****

Now it is time to dress your candle. You can use olive oil or a specific oil that helps your spell. For example, you can use Money Drawing Oil for a money spell.

How to Dress a Candle

What do I mean by dress a candle? This is when you rub the candle with oil.

You can use many different types of oils, available at your local metaphysical shop or online. If you don’t know which oil to use, simply start with virgin olive oil.

How to Rub the Oil on Your Candle

If you’re trying to draw something to you, rub from the tip (wick end) to the base of the candle. This motion draws what you want towards you. To push something away from you (like getting rid of a cold), rub the oil from the base to the wick.

*****

Now place your candle in an appropriate candle holder on a heat proof surface (usually on an altar). Focus on what you want the candle to do for you. Hold your hands over the candle as you do this. Next, either express a chant for your spell or light the candle. Meditate on your desire as you watch the flame. Stay with your candle until it burns itself out. It is important to let the candle burn out completely. This seals the spell.

May candle magick bless your days.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

The Wiccan Way to Dispel Anger

Candle

When was the last time you were angry? It’s a tough emotion to endure. Everyone gets angry at times. A sibling, your parents, or your boss can light the flame.

So how do we deal with that anger? You can’t let go of anger until you let go of your first perception.

Let me explain: The perception that things are supposed to be a certain way in your life can cause much distress if those perceptions are not met.

For example, I have a dear friend who works as a teacher. It’s important work; he is educating the next generation of people to inherit the Earth. But teachers get paid a pittance compared with how important their job is. I see my friend struggle, and I get angry about it.

Does my anger do any good? Does anything change?

No. I just feel awful.

It’s necessary for me to do a Ritual to Dispel Anger.

Here is the ritual below.

What you will need:

  • One red candle
  • Banishing oil (you can use sage oil if you like)
  • Cauldron
  • Heat proof surface for your cauldron
  • One word for the object that represents your feelings of anger

Cast circle

Place cauldron in the middle of the altar on your heat proof surface.

Next, asperge and cense your candle. Carve the one word (length wise) on the candle that names what you’re angry about. Dress candle with banishing oil.

Holding the candle, visualize all your anger, focusing the feelings into the candle. Once you have pushed all that anger into the candle, hold up the candle and say:

[Name what angers you] that burns me so,

It’s time for this anger to go!

As I light you, you will burn,

(Light the candle and place it in the cauldron.)

Melting down turn by turn.

As you melt, my anger will disappear,

Never coming back to burden me here.

Sit and watch the flame of the candle. Feel your anger being burnt up as the candle is consumed.

Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony

Close the Circle

For some Wiccans, it may take a few repetitions of this Ritual to Dispel Anger.

Going back to the above ideas I shared: “You can’t let go of anger until you let go of your first perception. The perception that things are supposed to be a certain way in your life can cause much distress if those perceptions are not met.”

Eventually, it’s valuable to shift to a state of acceptance*. Did something happen that upsets you? Yes. Can you go back in time and change it? No. What can you do now? Pick your battles. If you’re called to take action on a particular issue, then find something proactive to do.

Otherwise, use the Ritual to Dispel Anger.

It helps.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

* Please know that acceptance is NOT approval. Wiccans know that the Earth at present is home to both good and bad things happening. Acceptance is part of consciously choosing some things to work on and other things to let go.

Money, Prosperity and Wiccans Enjoying Life: A Money Spell

 

moneystack

In a gathering of friends, some conversation about money arose. You could see it. Some of the people gathered bristled.

I like to talk about prosperity which includes an abundance of love, friends, things we need and the ability to be generous.

For example, just last night, a homeless man stood outside a 7-Eleven convenience store. He asked, “Could you buy me something to drink?”

“Sure,” I said. I was buying a Big Gulp, and I bought him one, too.

“Thank you,” he said, quietly.

I was grateful that I had the cash in my pocket to buy something for both of us.

Sometimes, we simply need cash to buy something for another person or to pay our bills.

In light of that, here is a Money Spell.

Money Spell

You will need:

  • A green candle
  • “A check to yourself from the Universe”*
  • Cauldron
  • Money drawing oil
    • Money Oil (add drops of essential oils together)
      3 parts ginger
      2 parts orange
      4 parts pine
      2 parts cinnamon
      1/2 part chamomile
      1 part cedar wood
      5 parts jasmine (optional)
  • matches or a lighter

* We create a check from the Universe by writing the amount we want and writing “from the Universe for the Good of All” in the memo section on the check.

Warning: ONLY work this spell during the waxing moon.

Cast Circle in the usual manner.

Dress the green candle properly. (That is, dab your finger in the money oil and rub the candle repeatedly from wick to base—until the whole candle is covered in money oil.)

As you dress the candle, envision money flowing into your life.

 Light the candle and chant the following out loud:

 As I light this candle so,
Make my money grow and grow,
Let it flow without rhyme or reason,
Each and every turn of season,
Filling up my pockets so wide,
Let me enjoy this happy ride,
Make me stronger than the ocean tides,
Manifesting my will to coincide,
With no malice, woe or hitches,
May there be no mess or jinxes,
With no need of fear of ruin,
Let it rain money, bless my journey.
An it harm none, so mote it be!

Now hold the “Check from the Universe.” Light the check via the candle and place the check in the cauldron to burn safely.

Watch the flame as it burns the check.

Meditate while focusing on the flame of the green candle.

When you are ready, place the green candle in a safe place and let the candle burn completely out. [Do NOT leave an untended candle. Stay safe.]

Close the Circle.

Enjoy the Cakes and Wine Ceremony


The above spell has worked for me. I had difficulty receiving appropriate checks and things cleared up. I was grateful!

May your journey be prosperous and happy.

Blessings,
Moonwater

Witches Pyramid – Spirit

WitchesPyramid

 

 

“Why is Spirit included with the Elements that make up the Witches Pyramid?” Juliet asked.

“Spirit refers to your higher self and the Gods and Goddesses,” I began. “The elements are the base of the Witches Pyramid. You need the elements plus Spirit to create life and to work magick.”

The preferable order of the Elements is Earth, Water, Air and Fire. They incrementally increase in energy.

We begin with Earth since it is the grounding Element. As you work up with the higher and higher energy levels till you reach Fire, you use Earth to ground them all.

After working with Earth, Water, Air and Fire, it’s natural to move to Spirit. When working with Spirit, we connect with our inner selves and the Gods. During meditation, you can receive messages and insights. We Wiccans strive to connect with Deity through nature, rituals and meditation sessions.

Wiccans work with Spirit in many ways that even connect with astral projection, psychometry (touching objects to sense them),  and clairvoyance/clairaudience.

An Example of Connecting With the Gods

We know that life can be really tough to endure. Some time ago, I shared a particular chant (on this blog) to help you connect with the Gods and receive support.

Here is the chant you can recite to yourself when you’re hurting:

By the Sun and by the Moon,
Let the Gods’ light be my boon.
Shining deep and shining far,
May I be healed by every star.
I saw it then, I see it now,
Darkness be gone right here, right now!

You can use this short chant whenever you are feeling low. For example you can use this chant during meditation, lighting a candle or as a prelude to a meditation.

In discussing the Spirit aspect of the Witches Pyramid, we have completed our multi-post conversation of the components of the Witches Pyramid: Earth, Water, Air, Fire and Spirit.

We Wiccans can deepen our practice by repeatedly focusing on meditations related to the Elements and Spirit.

Blessings,

Moonwater SilverClaw

Wicca on a Budget

EmptyPockets

Wicca on a Budget

I didn’t know what to do. When I first started on the Wiccan path, I read some books and it appeared that I needed a bunch of tools—which I could not afford! What was I to do? Like many young people at that time, I didn’t have a lot of money.

Many books don’t tell you something important: You probably already have all the tools you need. You don’t need all the fancy trappings and trimmings to practice the Craft. Using something simple is just as effective as employing some store-bought, fancy item. Tools encrusted with gems and other trimmings don’t make for a better tool.

In fact, the most powerful tools are ones we make ourselves.

Why? As you make the tool, the tool absorbs your energy and so holds more power.

But do not fear if you’re not skilled with arts and crafts. You will do just fine with simple things you gather from within your home.

Which household items can you use for your tools of Wicca?

First, avoid items that are made of plastic.

Now, here’s a list of things you can use:

Altar: Any table will do.

Altar Cloth: A large square scarf (or even sarong) will work. Just remember that the altar cloth helps to keep wax from damaging the altar. So if you do not want wax on your cloth, find some other material.

Athame: You can use a butter knife. Generally an athame is a black-handled, double edged knife. But a butter knife will work just fine. An athame doesn’t need to be sharp. It cuts energy not material things.

Bell: Any bell will work. You can even use a utensil to strike a wine glass. The bell on a cat collar will also work.

Boline:  The traditional boline is a white handled knife often with a curved blade, but a steak knife will work well. This knife, unlike the athame, is used for cutting physical things like herbs. You’ll also use the boline to carve runes and names on candles.

Candles: Any kind of candles will do. Further, any inexpensive tea lights would work.

Cauldron: Any fireproof container will do. A pot works well.

Censer: A simple bowl of sand will work just fine.

Goblet or chalice: Any glass will do. A wine glass will work well. Originally, the traditional goblet was made out of wood.

Incense: You could use fresh herbs from your garden if you don’t have regular incense.

Offering Dishes: The bowls from your kitchen cabinet will work just fine.

Pentacle: A simple plate painted with a pentagram works. Pentacles were often made out of carved wax, which could thrown in a fire and melt into nothing. That’s one way that witches employed to stay hidden from the wrath of persecutors.

Salt: It’s nice to have sea salt, but the table salt will do.

Wand: A branch from a tree in your garden will work. Make sure it does not touch the ground as this would cause the loss of the power the tree gave it.

Water: You don’t need to have spring water. Tap water works fine.

As you can see, most if not all of the tools you need reside in your home already. If you can make your own tools, that’s even better. However, most of us are not metalsmiths, nor do we have a forge handy. That’s okay, since I shared handy substitute-items above.

Wicca can be done on a budget. All you need is your imagination.

Blessings,
