Spells for Money and Business

Right.  So, this is the month of Love and I’ve written how to (hopefully) meet the man or woman of your dreams.  I probably wouldn’t be writing at this time concerning money spells if I had not been asked.  When one person asks, you tell them alone.  But, when three or more ask, you blog about it 🙂

You really don’t have to be a dyed-in-the-wool generational Witch to perform a spell.  And, if you EVER pay a “Witch” to perform a spell for you, then shame on her or him.  You will definitely get what you pay for – in some form or another.  And, it may not be what you want.  No self-respecting Witch will ask for money these days for his or her spellwork.  Oh yes, the “cunning women” of old did do.  Seamen paid many an old dear for safe journeys by sea once upon a time.  You can bet that she did her job right, or there would be a very angry sailor come a-calling when he returned! Nowadays, if you Paypal your dosh to someone for a spell, you can’t very well go looking for the hag what took your money and did nothing for you, can you? So, lesson Number one:  Don’t pay for spells.

I’ll tell you what works, for nothing.  If it doesn’t work for you, then the one thing you may be lacking is Intention.  No matter if you’re doing a full-blown, cast a circle, banging drums and ringing bells spell or just lighting a candle and chanting, it is only with the strongest of Intention that anything will work.  You really, really have to want and believe in something to have it.  Lesson Number two:  Faith.

So, you see…wishes really do work, if you wish them hard enough  🙂

I will assume that whomever is reading this blog is not favourable toward casting a circle and doing the entire Witch bit.  That’s alright.  I’ve had as many non-circle spells work as the ones with all the bells and whistles.  You may need to purchase a few items locally in order to perform your spell, the main ones being:

For money spells: either a large green candle that can burn for an hour over 7 or 8 days, or 7 or 8 green small spell/chime candles which can burn for an hour each

For business spell: small gold chime/spell candle

herbs:  cedar wood, dried orange peel, cinnamon, ginger, bay leaf, cloves, maple bark, ash bark, galangel root (all have money & success drawing attributes, choose any 3 for your talisman)

oils:  Patchouli, Orange, Ginger, Bergamot, Clove

crystals:  green aventurine, pyrite (pyrite is good for sitting near ones computer for business)

And, rest assured, you don’t need to purchase everything I list here.  After you have read this entire blog, you can make your choices according to which spell you prefer to use, then buy what you need accordingly.  I don’t want you spending a shedload of money to try to receive a shedload of money 🙂

For Money:

Simple things you can do:

1.  Carry a piece of cedar wood or ginger in your wallet, money purse, or pocket to draw wealth
2.  Keep a small jar of alfalfa in your food cupboard and you’ll never be without food
3.  Rub Patchouli oil on your money, sprinkle it in your handbag or pockets

An easy little money spell anyone can do is to take a handfull of coins and place on the floor (not where dogs, young children, or people thinking they’ve found spare change to use at the laundrette can pick them up) whilst chanting (at least three times) “Money on the floor brings money in the door”.

This one takes a bit more work:

This must be done on the proper Day and Hour of Jupiter**. I will explain more in a bit. You will need a Green Candle and a White Candle. The Green candle represents the money, and the white candle represents you. You may draw/carve money symbols on the green candle (£ or $ or whatever you use in your country) and  then annoint the candles with a money-drawing oil, such as Orange, Patchouli, Clove, Bergamot, or Ginger,  thinking of your desire for money to come to you. Set the candles on your altar or table 8 inches apart. After doing this, say…(saying it 3 times or more is best)

“Money, money come to me
In abundance three times three
May I be enriched in the best of ways
Harming none on its way
This I accept, so mote it be
Bring me money three times three!”

You need to start this Spell on a Thursday which is the Day of Jupiter and at the proper hour of Jupiter for your Latitude and Longitude. Repeat this for 8 days. Each day move the White Candle one inch closer to the Green Candle.  Allow the candles to burn for one hour before extinguishing and during this time, visualise money coming into your life. When the Candles touch on the eighth day, your spell is finished. This will end the Spell on a Thursday as well.

Each day you should find the proper Planetary Hour of Jupiter and do the Spell at that time. This will give it much more power. Jupiter is associated with money. Be sure you visualise the money pouring in from the Universe, but make sure you imagine a source of where that money will come from… and don’t ask for the Lotto…. it’s not going happen.

**** you can find the Planetary hours table here: http://www.lunarium.co.uk/planets/hours.jsp to find what time the Jupiter hour(s) are for each day.

I may as well give you a list of which days and their corresponding planet:

Monday – Moon (voyages, travel, anything to do with water)
Tuesday – Mars (to acquire courage, overthrow enemies)
Wednesday – Mercury (answers about the future, divination)
Thursday – Jupiter  (money)
Friday – Venus  (love)
Saturday – Saturn (to acquire learning)
Sunday – Sun  (business)

Keep these in a convenient place or memorise them as they will be used again.

Business Spells –

Firstly, whilst Jupiter (Thursday) is the best day for doing a money spell, funnily enough, Sunday is the best day for business spells.  As you may have come to expect by now, the Planetary hours are a huge part of this plan.  See the link above for the Planetary hour of the Sun for the Sunday on which you plan to do your Business spell.  They do change daily as the days hours are always adjusting by minutes.  If you get too confused, just ask, I’ll try to explain.

When you have chosen the Sunday and the Planetary hour of the Sun during which to do this spell, collect beforehand these items:

A small pouch
A coin – a 50p piece or a quarter or whatever you use in your country
Patchouli oil
small green aventurine crystal
herbs:  any 3 of the above-mentioned herbs
gold spell candle
patchouli incense
a tiny bowl of water
a tiny bowl of salt

Place the herbs, green aventurine, and coin into the pouch and drop 3 drops of Patchouli oil over the items inside.  Draw the pouch closed and tie it.  This is never to be opened again.  Pass the pouch (now a talisman) over the bowl of salt and say, “Element of Earth, cleanse this talisman”

Pass the talisman over the the incense and say, “Element of Air, cleanse this talisman”
Pass  it over the burning candle and say, “Element of Fire, cleanse this talisman”
Pass it over the bowl of water and say, “Element of Water, cleanse this talisman”

Blow on the talisman three times, draw in the air an equal-armed cross over the talisman and say, “Thou art cleansed, consecrated, and empowered in the name of (God, the Divine Source, the goddess – if you have a favoured one, or just say the Universe, if none of the others suit).  This magick is sealed. So mote it be.”

Spend a few moments bringing up within yourself the desire to see your business succeed.  Visualise it being successful, making all the money you could ever need.  See yourself as the most successful businesswoman or man you’ve ever known.  Bring up every ounce of belief within you that your business will be successful not just now, but always.  See yourself always making the right business decisions in order to make it successful.  Get really excited about your success. Own it!  When you feel you are ready, say:

“Slow business be gone
I (we) need business success and money to come
Business was weak
Now business is strong
Bring customers in need
of my (our) services (or goods) agreed
Let money & success come fast
And let money & success last
Let our success harm none
But to help all who come!”
So mote it be!

Allow your gold candle to burn for an hour before extinguishing (or if it’s a small spell candle, until it burns out on its own).  Keep your talisman on your desk by the computer if that is where you do your business or in the till at your shop, or under the telephone if that is where your business is done.  NEVER allow the talisman to be opened and always leave it where business is done.

I know this spell works as I did it for a company I once worked for that was in over-draught when I did the spell and within a very few days, we had business like never before and money pouring in.  This did go on for a few months until one night after I had left, some twit took the talisman from underneath my phone and emptied it!  Business went down the swanee after that and I was made redundant about a year later due to lack of money.  Ah well…

So my best wishes go with you as you endeavour to make a little extra money for the bills or to bring your business to success!  Lesson Number 3?  See Lesson Number 2 again 🙂 Good Luck and Blessed be )O(

How To Make a Book of Shadows (Grimoire) For the Beginning Witch

Looking around the interwebs, I have found a lot of good and useful bits of advice.  Some are a bit advanced, however, for those of you just beginning your practise/path.  As a matter of fact, I find them too advanced for myself and I’ve been a Witch all of my life.  We need not discuss how many years that has been 🙂

By “too advanced”, I do not mean to say that you nor myself would be capable of using these ideas, just that – if I’m honest – I find unnecessary.  However, as I do want everyone to have every idea and possibility to add to their Book of Shadows (BOS) as they feel they should, then later on in this series, we’ll have a look at everything, necessary or not.

My first piece of advice to the Witch on his or her new path is “less is more”.  I’m not saying you need do nothing and it will all magick its way upon you, simply that, don’t try to do or have everything at once.  There is nothing worse than buying shedloads of “tools”, herbs, oils, and the like, then finding that you really didn’t need all of those things.  There are plenty of websites as well as Etsy and Ebay with sellers happy to sell you huge “Witch-y kits”, repleat with altar patens, altar clothes, wands, bolines, athames, candles, herbs, etc. for loads of money.  Just add water and you’re an instant Witch.  No.  The way to begin is the way you mean to carry on.  Start with the basics, don’t worry that you don’t have “everything” that some other Witches may have, and you will find, along the way, what you truly “need”.

The basics – what are they?  I believe a journal or a simple notebook is plenty good enough for the new Witch.  I bought a very nice leather-bound BOS some years ago, and to be honest, it only has a very few pages with entries.  The reason is, is that I only want what I feel is 100% effective in my BOS.  No spell, no oil blend, no information of any kind is written into my BOS until I have proved it to be effective myself.  You could have the most gorgeous BOS on the market, but if it is filled with a lot of useless spells and recipes, what is the point?

This is why I recommend a simple journal or notebook.  Oh, you can tart it up, if you like…use acrylic paints to paint sigils, etc on the outside cover, or stickers.  But here is where you can write whatever you wish to your heart’s content – take notes from the books you read that mean something to you, write up recipes of your own for oil blends or herbal blends, draw pictures of the herbs that you’re studying, clip photos and paste in…whatever you like.  In fact, you can fill lots of notebooks over a course of years with all you’ve learned BEFORE you choose what you have found to be effective.  Then, when you have found what truly works for you, make or purchase the BOS of your dreams and write in it all that you’ve learned.  You won’t have to rely on memory…you’ll have notebooks full of memories!  This final BOS (and in some cases, Witches will have more than one of these) is the one that is your legacy, the one you’ll hand down to your children or a new Witch whom you have been teaching over a period of time.

Next time, I’ll tell you more about what is in my own BOS, just to give you a starting point – it is NOT the only way to do a BOS, yours will be the way you want it to be.  Thanks for reading and if you find this helpful in anyway, please like and share!  Blessed Be )O(

For those of you whom have BOS’ that are in need of extra parchment paper, please visit our main site at http://speakingofwitchwandsandmagickalthings.com and under “Thee Shoppe of Magickal Things” you will find we sell lightweight parchment paper in ivory a package of 10 sheets

Please help us make our dream come true!  We are a family owned and operated small business, making bespoke and pre-made wands, alter patens, enchantment beads, and selling herbs, oils, candles, and all manner of Witchly goods.  We need a total of $1595US/£2424GBP in order to fulfill the immediate needs.  There are lovely perks for several stages of contributions and whilst a $10/£10 donation would be wonderful, we also understand what it is like in the economy, therefore if all you can share is $1/£1 it would be a blessing to us.  If enough people share that much, we can meet our goal.  Thank you and Blessed be!

** Sorry, I am having a problem posting the link to Indiegogo.  If you want to make a donation, you may copy & paste this link into your browser:   http://www.indiegogo.com/project/share/487881  Thank you!
