Money Jar

This spell will create a fountain of wealth to pour out more money for your family. The best money jars are the ones that have been passed down from mother to daughter, but since not everyone is lucky enough to have one passed down you can learn how to make your own to start a trend of family riches! This spell takes time to get started, but only gets more powerful as time goes on. So be patient and let it build with time.

Magical Tools
• Quart-Sized Mason Jar
• Gold spray paint
• Green Ribbon
• Thin silver chain
• Mint, Basil and Fenugreek
• Money Oil

Magical Spell
Use spray paint to paint the inside of the jar completely gold. To get the smoothest finish, paint in several thin layers allowing the paint to dry between layers. The jar should be beautiful and inspiring.

Rub the jar all over the outside with the mint, basil and fenugreek. Place dried mint, basil and fenugreek inside the jar. Dress the outside of the jar with money oil.

Tie green ribbon and silver chain around the rim of the jar.

Every full moon place 3 silver coins in the jar. If there is a blue moon (a second full moon in the same month as another) this is a particularly good omen, and you should put 2 extra silver coins in the jar. If you don't have silver coins then use the largest coin in your national currency.

When the jar is full, put half the money in a bank account that you have set aside as a special fund, and distribute the other half of the money to a charity of your choice. When the jar is empty, immediately put three new coins and more basil, mint and fenugreek in the jar.

To pass the jar on to your child, wait until the jar is halfway full and give it to them on the night of the full moon. You should place one coin in the jar, and have your child place two coins in.

DO NOT RAID the jar before it is full. Doing so will weaken the magic and eventually make it ineffective

Tiger Eye Bill Banishing Charm

If expensive bills are making it impossible to save up money or put anything away for an emergency or special treat, use this talismanic spell to put a stop to all those money drains. Tiger's eye is a gemstone that is known to be a powerful attractant for wealth, and when used in this spell it will put an end to wasteful spending that is keeping you down.

Magical Tools
• Tiger's eye stone

Magical Spell
Before beginning any spellwork, attune the tiger's eye stone so that it will work extra hard to protect your financial health. Place the stone in a bowl of water that has absorbed moon beams for a week, and then sleep with it under your pillow until you have a dream of financial success. The stone is now ready.

Whenever you pay a bill or write an expensive check, rub the paper with the tiger's eye and visualize it erasing any debts that you owe to that lender. See your balance due in their ledger book dwindle quickly down to nothing.

Whenever you receive a payment or gift of money, rub the paper with the stone and visualize your bank statement with more in it than you expect.

When your good fortune has gotten to the point that you can no longer ignore the impact that the stone has had in your life, thank it. Then give the stone to another person that is having money difficulties. Explain to them how the stone works and bless them as you have been blessed.

Avocado Prosperity Charm

Avocados, with their rich green flesh, represent lasting wealth. Use this charm to make sure that you are always with plenty of financial resources. If you ever experience a sudden change in fortune, such as losing or starting a new job, a serious illness, or some other major event then you should recharge this charm and that will help ensure that even if there is short term calamity—your luck will turn for the better in the long run.

Magical Tools
• Avocado
• Salt
• Olive Oil
• Gold Paint
• Green Ribbon

Magical Spell
Eat an Avocado with salt and olive oil, two other potent symbols of wealth. Do not eat anything else with the avocado and make sure that you eat it on an empty stomach. Allow yourself to feel the richness and flavor filling your body as you swallow and savor the avocado.

Save the pit and set it aside where it will be able to dry out. When it is completely dry, paint the pit in the brightest gold paint that you have. Paint several coats until it looks like a golden egg (perhaps this is where the legend comes from?)

Attach the green ribbon to the pit using glue or tying it on. Do not drill holes or chip any part of the pit away: the pit is your nest egg, do not ever do anything to decrease it.

Using the ribbon hang the pit in a northern facing window.

To recharge the charm, just apply a fresh coat of gold paint and sleep with the pit under your pillow until you have a dream of new wealth and prosperity coming your way.

Ritual to Refresh Your Spirit for the New Year

This is not for making new years resolutions which are usually broken by most
people. Instead this is to inspire New Spirit for the New Year. It is to purify
and to refresh your spirit. It should be performed in the morning and then again
in the evening. It should also be done outside, but if this is not possible then
In the morning go outside and immerse your hands in the snow( if performing
inside then immerse in a bowl or basin of chilled water) until they are chilled
through, then anoint your brow and say...
"substance wasted, substance spoiled,
now be redeemed.
Seeing thyself in substance undefiled,
forming thyself a new from this frail substance
gathered and revived."
Repeat in the evening

by Whisper

A Couple of New Year's Eve Spells

This year, try writing your New Years resolutions in dragons blood ink on a square piece of parchment paper. This ink is traditionally used for spells involving strength and power. Then, upon the paper sprinkle a bit of dried mug wort, and roll it into a tube and secure it in the center with a red ribbon. Anoint a new white candle with bergamot oil as you state your resolutions aloud. Light the candle and then use its flame to set fire to the rolled-up parchment. Cast the parchment into a small cast iron cauldron (or other fireproof container) and recite three times the following incantation: "To the flames my words are spoken as the newborn year unfolds. Resolutions be not broken, promises be upheld.

To ensure that your life is blessed with good luck through the next twelve months, perform this simple spell at midnight on New Year's Eve. First, open every door and window of your house to allow the spirit of the old year to depart. Go outside and light a green candle that has been anointed with a few drops of cinnamon, cypress, or lotus oil, and, without uttering a single word, reenter your house through the back door. Walk through every room with the candle in your hand, go back outside through the front door then in again by the back. Additionally, you may place a silver coin, a piece of coal, and a piece of bread on a windowsill or porch at midnight on New Year's Eve, and then bring them into the house after you rise from bed on New Year's morning.

A Winter Prayer

See the gray skies overhead, preparing the way
for the darkness soon to come.
See the gray skies overhead, preparing the way,
for the world to go cold and lifeless.
See the gray skies overhead, preparing the way
for the longest night of the year.
See the gray skies overhead, preparing the way
for the sun to one day return,
bringing with it light.

by Patti Wigington

Prayer to the Winter Goddess

O! Mighty goddess, in silvery ice,
watching over us as we sleep,
a layer of shining white,
covering the earth each night,
frost on the world and in the soul,
we thank you for visiting us.
Because of you, we seek warmth
in the comfort of our homes and hearths.

Calling Your Soul Mate

This spell is intended to draw a partner who is best suited to you at this time in your life, or one who is "meant" for you. It is supposedly "fail-safe", but remember, you must take responsibility for any results and consequences.

Components Needed:

A clear mind and focused goal

Special paper, such as hemp, cotton, real parchment, whatever you deem special

A ritual writing instrument (the pen is mightier than the Athame) such as quill, fountain pen, favorite ball-point, etc. In whatever color ink desired.

Moon Incense

Charcoal or a small ritual fire

Timing: any time, preferably after dark during the waxing moon. The timing is more flexible with this working for many reasons; the nature of the work, and the full moon energy contained in the moon incense which is an incense of Increase or drawing.

Reinforce your personal circle/aura and prepare for workings in your usual manner. Using the ritual pen and special paper, write words of power that will call the most perfect partner to you at this time. Do not include specific names, and avoid thinking of a specific person. If you can't find quite the right words, use the following:

If there be a perfect match,
this work tonight will surely catch.
the perfect one who is meant to be,
shall find His/Her way home to me.
In perfect love and perfect trust,
I send this out, but not from lust,
This spell will guide us to unite,
free will remains with us tonight.

When you are finished, read over what you wrote and confirm that everything you want to say is included. When you are certain it is as you wish, spend some time meditating on your goal while you light your ritual fire or the charcoal. When you get "that feeling" (the one when you know everything is right, your will is focused, you know it is certain, you know the feeling...) prepare to begin the physical aspect of the ritual. When the fire has become coals, or the charcoal is glowing happily, read aloud your writing, repeating it 3 times. As you read, or as you come to the end of each repetition, sprinkle a small handful (about a tablespoon) of the Moon Incense on the fire. You will want to be practiced at this for the best effect as well as safety, so make up a full recipe of it and accustom yourself to its nature prior to the rite.

Fold the paper and keep it near you for three days. Keep it under your pillow, mattress, or pinned to your night clothes (if you aren't sky/star clad) while you sleep. After three days, light another ritual fire, repeat the Circle of Power/Protection, reading and incense procedure and this time, burn the paper when you are done. OR you can keep the paper in a special spell box if you use this method. Many witches have special containers to keep finished workings in. These are usually decorative and personalized with engravings or painting on them that echo their contents. For example, a heart shaped heartwood box with runes and magickal symbols of love on it for this spell. Usually only similar spells are kept together, or each spell is kept in its own box.

An Interesting Money Spell

Found this spell for money and was intrigued by the inclusion of using a strand of your own hair. Think I may give it a try.

Items you will need

1 Green candle (for earth and money)

1 White candle (for purity and spiritual)

1 red candle (for fire)

1 Blue candle (for water)

1 Gold candle (or yellow for air)

A piece of your hair (or anything that comes off your body easily)

a cloth bag

An altar

A belief in magic

A voice

A good memory (to remember the spell without the paper or book you read it off of

Take the candles and light them and put them in a circle on your altar. Put the white at the top, and the other colors anywhere. Take your hair (or other thing)and put it in the middle. Take your cloth bag and put it in the middle also. Make sure to remember the spell because you have to concentrate on the candles and not the book or paper you read the spell off of.

Pick your hair up (or other thing)and stare into the green candle and say:

With this one strand of hair,
I will get wealthy because it's fair,
I invoke the spirits and want to say,
I need money, O I need it today.

The next time you say it, stare at the white candle, then the blue, then the red, then the gold/yellow.

Then after you're done doing that, take the bag and put the strand of hair in it. Then finish off the spell by saying:

I will be wealthy,
I will be healthy,
With this strand of hair,
I will get my money,
And it will be fair.

Carry the strand of hair with you always. Blessed Be!!!

Wish Spell

Here is another spell I am considering for a Yule activity for myself and guests. Again simple but one you need to think on deeply to be clear on the admonition to 'be careful what you wish for'

Wish Spell
This spell has been used many times and the wished things have happened
usually in a short time.

-Needed Supplies-
*1 sheet of quality paper/parchment
*a pen/pencil used in magickal works
*candles (usually white, can change depending on your wish)

Do a relaxation ritual before this and clear your mind well. Concentrate on
the spell not the joy afterwards.

Take the paper/parchment and draw a pentagram in the middle of it. Then draw
a ying-yang symbol in the middle of it. Now write down your wish on the top
of the sheet. Write your wish such as ''make me get rich, make my
mother/friend etc. get healed, make me get 'the thing you want''...
Then fold the sheet 2-3 times and seal it with your candle. Then burn it with
the fire of candle you sealed it. While it turns into ashes, repeat your wish
inside yourself or out loud. When it's all ash,sprinkle the ashes from a
window or such.
'Be careful what you wish for, it can come in any way'

This Spell is by... "Nunna Bussiness"

Here is an alternative to the above spell that I also found and liked.

Write your name and date of birth on a piece of paper, followed by your wish.
End it with this:

'While many without faith may dismiss
I promise I will always believe in this wish
And in the things I am yet to learn
So grant me this wish I soulfully yearn'

Fold the paper 3 times.

Now light the candle and burn the paper whilst repeating the phrase above.

Move the candle to somewhere safe and let it burn out.

It might a bit of time for the wish to happen, but it will, unless what you wished for wasn't white magic or unless the spirits saw it wasn't what you needed, although this happens very rarely.

Attracting the Perfect Partner

Found these tips at Everything Under the Moon and thought they were fun, interesting and easy enough to do in the pursuit of finding and drawing to yourself that special person for you.

1. Create a clear picture in your mind of your perfect partner. These vibrations can attract your imaginary man or woman into your life.
2. Make a relationship collage with pictures of things that are important to you.
3. Be specific when you visualize the environment and your future together.
4. Put it in writing. Make a list of your needs and wants in a satisfying relationship.
5. Place the list where you can see it often. The more time and energy you devote to it, the closer the reality becomes.
6. Focus on the list and verbalize it. Repeat it aloud for even greater impact. There's nothing like the power of the spoken word!


I am looking for some spells to do on Yule to make use of the soltice and the full lunar eclipse. This is one I am considering. I could use some enlightenment and I like that this one is simple in materials but deep in meaning.


This spell requires two blue candles and one candle to portray yourself, and sandalwood oil.
Anoint candles with the oil and visualize yourself being translike state. place blue candles on either side of the chosen candle, light the blue candles and say unto thyself:
-Spirit guides/ higher self hear my plea
-Come now and converse with me
-Walk me and guide me through this veil trance, I ask of you

Now sit in a comfortable position and become aware of your breathing patterns. Inhale deeply, exhale deeply, listen to rhythmic body and breathing motions. become relaxed and close your eyes. Focus on your third eye and visualize red, orange, yellow, green, blue, blue, indigo, purple, and white in order. Hold each color for a count of five. Watch as it fades into each color, still focusing on third eye. Watch your breath and see your chest rise and fall with with air (eyes still closed) and watch your breath as it as it changes into waves. Now visualize a door on water. Visualize yourself go in and visit with your spirit guide and ask questions. trust the answers you receive. Walk out the door, watch the waves turn back into breathing patterns. now open your eyes and say to yourself:
-I return to earth again
-Thank you spirit self and friends
Then blow out the candles in reverse order, first your chosen candle and then the blue candles.

This spell is very good to do before trying other in-depth spells.

Colour and Candle Magick

Candle Magic Sorita
From above to below
Flows the pattern of perfection
From desire to manifestation
Flows the pattern of Magick
From within to without
Flows the pattern of my will

Candle magick is probably one of the simplest forms of magick to get started with. You need nothing but the candle and fire to light it with. Candle magick can also be seen to be complete within itself, as the body of the candle is made up from the elements of Earth, Air and Water. To complete you need fire and spirit. Fire is easy, and Spirit can be represented by the wick of the candle, as the wick is where the potential of the candle lies and will be unfolded with. With the candle lit, the flame of your intent will burn.

CANDLE MAGIC have been used for centuries for magick and ritual. We light candles at holidays, a practice that takes place in many different religions, cultures and traditions. Candles invoke the divine, they create a sense of ceremony and they are facinating to look at. Candles can be purchased anywhere, by anyone without anyone blinking an eye or suspecting magick and witchcraft!

Through their ability to help you to focus on your wishes they make your heart's desire come true. Try it next time you want to make something happen in your life! Below is a few simple guidelines for using candles in magick!

Unwittingly you probably performed your first act of Candle Magick when you where very young on your birthday, blowing out the candles on your cake and making a wish!

This tradition is based on the three principals of magick; being concentration, will power and visualization. You have to concentrate to blow the candles out, wish and see your dream coming true - absolute magick!

Important pointers on choosing a candle:
1.Choose a plain candle, of uniform shape. Having unusual or large candles can be distracting and is therefore not suitable for magickal use.
2.Candles used for magick should always be Virgin (unused) at the start of the ritual. Using secondhand candles or other materials in magick can have disastrous effects as they might have picked up vibrations from previous use, even if it was just on a dinner table!
3.It is a very good idea to make your own candles if they are for magickal use. It will increase the magickal potency of the candle many times.
4.It is very easy to make your own candles, simply heat the wax until liquid and pour it into a mould which is treaded with a wick. The wax should now be left to cool, after which the mould can be removed. Oils and colours can be added to the Wax for extra effects.
5.Charge your candle before using it in ritual. This can be done by annointing it with oils associated with the ritual or magick you intend on performing, or by simply touching it and charging it with your own energy.
6.Whilst charging the candle, visualixe the North and South Poles - rub the oil into the candle starting at either the North or South end and always brush in the same direction.
7.The oils used in the annointing of your candle should where possible always be natural fragrances.
8.Try to colour the candles according the the colour associations below.
Astrological Associations for Candle Magick

•Gemini -Yellow
•Cancer- Silver

An absent coven member can be represented by a candle representing their sunsign, or if you are doing a spell for someone you can represent that person with a candle representing their sunsign.

Colours for magickal purposes
White - Can be used for any purpose

Black - Attributed to Saturn. Saturn is used for retribution and when we have been wronged - revenge. Be careful, you may feel that you need to punish someone at once with a Hex and make them suffer! That is real power yeah?


Remember the laws of return, and avoid this temptation! This is most probably why Saturn is the teacher.

Black candles is used for Discord, protection from retribution, power, strengh, banishing rituals and protection.

Blue - Peace and Harmony, protection, healing, curing fevers, re-uniting friendships, house blessings, breaking bad habits, overcoming addiction, clearing atmosphere where there are arguments or trauma.

Brown - Used for the Physical Planes, as a combination of the colours Green and Red, Mars and Venus blended together as one. It is often used to seperate, and also for grounding and stabilizing.

Brown is ruled by Pluto, the Lord of the Outer Spaces and The Dead.

In Candle Magick, Brown is used for spells involving: Concentration, balance, ESP, intuition, study, justice and seperation.

Gold or light Yellow - This colour attracts Cosmic influences and is beneficial used in rituals intended to bring fast luck and money. It is also used in rituals needing solar energy.

General uses in Candle Magick would include:

•Financial gain
•Higher influences.
Green Venus.- Venus rules on an earthy level, and green can attract all the things ruled by Venus. Treasure, antiques, worldly possesions. Green is often used in conjunction with orange, Mercury candle - used to clear obstacles in the way of revealing hidden treasure.

In Candle Magick green is used for fertility, good fortune, generosity, money, wealth, success, renewal, marriage, healing cancer and helping with female problems.

Indigo - This is used in meditation and ritual which demands the energy of Saturn, such as deep meditation, balancing Karma, stopping gossip and astral projection.

Magenta - This has a very high vibrational frequency and tends to work very fast. It is often used with other candles. General uses involve - quick changes, spirtitual healing and exorcism.

Orange Communication - Orange is ruled by Mercury, the divine messenger of the Gods. Orange works well when two people wish to have their telepathic senses opened together. Remember that Mercury is a trickster and when using this to "invade" another person, the trick could be on you!

This is excellent for job hunting, success, encouragement, adaptability, stimulation, attraction, sudden change, control, power to draw the good things in life and to change luck.

Pink - Pink is THE romantic colour, indicating love, affection, romance, spiritual awakening, healing of spirits and togetherness.

O, come, let us invoke Him!
O, come, let us invoke Him!
O, come, let us invoke Him!

Come to thy children
Calling for thy blessing!
O, come let us invoke Him (x3)
Our Lord, the Sun!

-Ellen Reed

Silent night, Solstice Night
All is calm, all is bright
Nature slumbers in forest and glen
Till in Springtime She wakens again
Sleeping spirits grow strong!
Sleeping spirits grow strong!

Silent night, Solstice night
Silver moon shining bright
Snowfall blankets the slumbering Earth
Yule fireswelcome the Sun's rebirth
Hark, the Light is reborn!
Hark, the Light is reborn!

Silent night, Solstice night
Quiet rest till the Light
Turning ever the rolling Wheel
Brings the Winter to comfort and heal
Rest your spirit in peace!
Rest your spirit in peace!

-Ellen Reed (1st verse)

Brothers, sisters, come to sing
Glory to the new-born King!
Gardens peaceful, forests wild
Celebrate the Winter Child!
Now the time of glowing starts!
Joyful hands and joyful hearts!
Cheer the Yule log as it burns!
For once again the Sun returns!
Brothers, sisters, come and sing!
Glory to the new-born King!

Brothers, sisters, singing come
Glory to the newborn Sun
Through the wind and dark of night
Celebrate the coming light.
Suns glad rays through fear's cold burns
Life through death the Wheel now turns
Gather round the Yule log and tree
Celebrate Life's mystery
Brothers, sisters, singing come
Glory to the new-born Sun.

-Ellen Reed
( Tune: "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear")

Ye children all of Mother Earth

To celebrate the Solstice night
When our lost Lord is found.
Rejoice, the year has begun again
The Sun blesses skies up above
So share the season together now
In everlasting Love!

-Ellen Reed

Snow lies deep upon the Earth
Still our voices warmly sing
Heralding the glorious birth
Of the Child, the Winter King
Glo -- ria!
In excelsis Deo!
Glo -- ria!
In excelsis Dea!

Our triumphant voices claim
Joy and hope and love renewed
And our Lady's glad refrain
Answer Winter's solitude
Glo -- ria!(etc.)

In Her arms a holy Child
Promises a glowing Light
Through the winter wind so wild
He proclaims the growing Light.
Glo -- ria! (etc..)

Now the turning of the year
Of the greater Turning sings
Passing age of cold and fear
Soon our golden summer brings.
Glo -- ria! (etc..)

(Tune: "Hark the Herald Angels Sing")

Hark the neo-Pagans sing,
Glory to the Holly King!
Peace on Earth and mercy mild,
God and Goddess reconciled,
Hear us now as we proclaim:
We have risen from the flames!
Our ancient Craft now we reclaim,
In the God and Goddess' names
Hark the neo-Pagans sing,
Glory to the Holly King!

Herne by highest love adored,
Herne the ever-reborn Lord,
At all times behold Him come,
Offspring of the Holy One,
Veiled in flesh, the Godhead see,
Hail Incarnate Deity!
Our ancient Craft now we reclaim,
in the God and Goddess' names
Hark the neo-Pagans sing,
Glory to the Holly King!
