So today is my best friend Dawn's birthday so my thoughts are on birthdays, hers and in general. Very hard to be half the world away from one of the people you love best on the planet. As a consequence I went looking for some magickal things to do on one's birthday. Found a little lore, a spell that involves plants n paper over and over and some other interesting stuff. Hope you like it.
Info and Spell by Ranna:
Many of you will be pleased to find out that the “Happy Birthday” term is pagan in nature. Pagans of times past asked that the God or Goddess give the birthday person good luck. During the times, things changed and people don’t know why they wish another happy birthday.
Even when we blow out the candles we are following a preChristian tradition brought to us by the Greeks. In this tradition on the 6th day of the month the Goddess of the hunt’s birthday was celebrated. The ancient Greeks celebrated the birthday on the 6th day of every month with a sweet cake made with honey and topped with burning candles.
When they blew out the candles the people would make wishes to the Goddess. Well… who knew? Also thanks to Ranna for this spell. This wish spell is to be done on the day of your birthday. This spell requires the purchase of a new plant (preferably your birthday flower) but if the flower wont be able to grow in your climate or you can’t purchase one find a young tree growing naturally.
What You’ll Need:
■Your Birthday! (This is a Birthday Wish Spell!)
■Your Birthday Flower (a seedling is best)
■1/4 of a sheet of paper and a Pen (with ink in your favorite color)
■Your Birthday Stone
Hold the stone in your power hand charging it with energy. Write your wish on a piece of paper. You can write up to three wishes onto your paper, but I think one is best. If you write one wish fold the paper once, if you make three wishes fold the pYou will need the following items for this spell:
This spell purports to be able to give any mortal their wish come true. Will have to try it and see if that is so.
What you need:
1 mortal It has to be the mortals birthday.

Casting Instructions for 'Birthday Wish Spell':
draw a star on the ground with the chalk. then tell the mortal to write his/her wish on the piece of paper. place the paper and the belonging to the mortal in the star. then chant at least 10 times.
" This mortal's wish needs to come true. Birthday wishes one and all. Make it true so mote it be" aper three times. Bury the paper into your plant, as the plant grows so will the energies in order to manifest your birthday wish. Many variations on candle chant spells. Liked this little chant, " the candles are lit, now grant my wish'. direct and to the point.
