Shoelace Luck Spell

This is an easy and subtle luck spell that is great for all occasions. It’s not intended to be a mega powerful spell (it can be though!) but something more low-key that works on a daily basis.

What you need:

  • Shoelaces of your favorite shoes
  • Basil
  • Violet flowers
  • Cinquefoil
  • Clover
  • Bachelor’s button
  • Cornflower
  • Burdock
  • Full Moon water
  • Sun water

Boil equal parts Sun water and Full Moon water together.

Infuse the basil, violet flowers, cinquefoil, clover, bachelor’s buttons, cornflowers, and burdock for a full day and night.

Strain and keep the liquid.

Pull your shoelaces from your shoes and soak the shoelaces in the liquid for at least seven minutes. You can

Pull out of shoelaces, squeeze out excess liquid and let dry completely. Re-lace your shoes with your enchanted shoelaces.

Recast the spell if the shoes get really soaked or you wash the shoes.

Notes:

  • Be wary! The infused water may stain your shoelaces so test the material first on a small patch of the shoelace.
  • Dry the herbal ingredients to ground for luck powder to use at your discretion. Or toss or compost the herbs if that doesn’t suit your needs.

Ring of Abundance

Yes, this sounds like something from a DnD game or video game, but you’re going to actually make a real magic ring of abundance. A ring with a lot of historical occult meaning behind it, once you start looking at the aspects of the ring.

Because of the nature of the spell, you’ll spend more time seeking out the right ring for this spell than you will casting the spell. I will say that these rings are not expensive (as rings go) and are easy enough to locate with the power of the internet.

Check the notes after the spell!

What you need:

  • A gold, copper, or brass ring set or inlaid with aventurine or peridot
  • Brass bell

Acquire a gold ring set with aventurine or peridot. Copper or brass can be alternatively used.

Cleanse the ring using a brass bell. Then set the ring in a sunny window for a few hours to charge the ring with sunlight.

Once charged and ready, sit with the ring and let your energy flow into the ring. When you feel like you’ve pass on enough energy, say the following while focusing on positive thoughts of abundance.

"Ring of mine
You bring abundance to me
Ring of mine
You bring wealth and financial gain
You bring luck to everything
Ring of mine
You bring health and wellness
You bring success and joy
Ring of mine
You are abundance
And you bring endless abundance to me
So long as I wear thee."


Make sure to take the time to really infuse energy into the ring. You want to make sure that you’re increasing and drawing luck, financial wealth, happiness, success, good health, and all around abundance to you. Repeat the chant as often as you want and/or need to.

You should wear your enchanted ring on your dominate hand’s middle finger. However, any finger should do so long as you feel completely comfortable and empowered wearing it there.

Notes:

  • The brass bells are great if you have them but you can also just use the sound of a brass bell. Use the power of the internet to your advantage.
  • They do make solid aventurine rings. They are an excellent alternative to having one made of metal.
  • Ideally, the ring should be made of gold. Copper is a very close second choice while brass is a solid third choice.
  • Peridot is recognized as the gemstone name (and coloring) of olivine (also known as chrysolite). They are the same stone. However, in Cunningham’s Encyclopedia of Crystal, Gem & Metal Magic, he comments on a debate over whether that’s true and separates them into two different stones. That book was published in 1988. My copy comes from 2000 and still has Peridot and Olivine separated. Everywhere else (other books and the internet) consider them the same thing. I’ll leave this debate to you rock nerds, but I’ve used both and they feel identical to me.
  • My lightning fast google search revealed thousands of results for aventurine rings, with many of them set in gold metal. They average about $50 USD, with a electroplated versions going as low as $25. I even found a handful of vintage aventurine rings.
  • Peridot gold rings are more expensive, according to my google searches at about $80 USD and often hundreds of dollars more because it’s the August birthstone. However, there’s quite a lot more variation founds in peridot rings versus aventurine rings, so you may wish to buy a peridot if only to get something unique and meaningful to you.

Break That Luck Candle Spell

Sometimes we just get some terrible bouts of luck that just needs to end and go away. This spell will help you do just that.

Why’s so much of this spell optional? Because of the structure of the spell, you have to breath, blow out, and relight the candle. That can be distressing if one has sensitivities to scents or smoke. So the scent aspect of this spell is optional but recommended.

What you’ll need:

  • Candle. A smaller red, white, gold, or black candle is suggested.
  • Incense or aromatherapy oils in cleansing or comforting scents (optional)
  • Powdered good luck herbs (optional)
  • Good Luck dressing/ anointing oil (optional)

Get your candle and charge it with intent or visualize you goal. Alternative, just tell the candle what you want to happen or carve it into the wax. Dress the candle in good luck oil and/or good luck herbs. This depends on your personal practice and if there‚Äôs enough space on the candle to even carve things into.

If you’re using aromatherapy or incense during this spell casting, it’s recommended that you start with a cleansing scent and during the break in the spell, start a comforting scent.

Light your candle and chant:

Trouble has come my way, 
Bad luck and bad times are bad friends 
I turn them away.  
Unwelcomed and unwanted, 
I break this cycle now.

Blow out the candle. Take a deep breath and release it. Switch to any any comforting scents you wish to use now. Take some time to reflect that the bad luck’s gone now. Once ready, light the candle again, saying the following:

With this new flame, I bring good luck into my life  
Good things, beneficial things, will and are happening 
And when this candle died, my good luck will live on

Let the candle burn out.

Notes:

  • Cleansing scents might be mint, citrus, sage, etc but comforting scents might might pumpkin, vanilla, or apple.
  • Short list of good luck herbs: Cinquefoil (five finger grass), clover, good luck iron cross, basil, allspice, cloves, ginger, wintergreen berries, star anise, bay, cinnamon, chamomile, mint, peppermint, or spearmint.
  • Your good luck dressing / anointing oil could be any recipe. I make up my own. You can simply soak some good luck herbs in oil for a few weeks or simmer them on the stove for a few hours in oil.
  • Please use fire safety! Use small candles to shorten wait times when you’re waiting for candles to burn down. Don’t set yourself, your home, your loved ones, or a forest on fire.

Happy casting!

Key Home Hunting Spell

This spell is great if you’re looking for a house, apartment, or somewhere new to live.

It might take a little doing to find the spell ingredients, so prepare in anticipation of needing to do the spell.

Remember to scroll to the bottom for additional notes!

What you’ll need:

  • Keys
  • Symbolic representation of the emotions you want to have in your home (ie, happiness, safety, etc)
  • A list or description of what you need and want in your home, including your budget range.
  • Enchanted water (any kind you want)

Go out and find some old keys. An antique store or used goods store probably has a good selection. If not, try online – they’re often used for crafts and you can buy a bunch of them on etsy, ebay, or a similar location.

The keys should, ideally, be of different styles and era and should be house or building keys rather than lock, car, or prop keys. Skeleton keys are fantastic for this.

Once you’ve got your keys, wash them. They don’t need to be polished, but a quick wipe down with some sort of enchanted water is idea. Sun water, full moon water, new moon water, holy or blessed water, lucky water… whatever feels right for you. If you don’t have any preference, use sun water.

Now cleanse the keys. You want to remove any negative energy and specific location ties a key has. If you have a key to a place you want (like an old key to a building you want to live in), don’t cleanse it except to remove negative energy. Once cleansed, empower the keys with positive energy, priming them to find opportunities for you.

Now that your keys are ready, make up your list of needs and wants for your home. Make sure you differentiate between your actual needs and wants. You need at least three bedrooms for you and your roommates or family, but you probably don’t need a fireplace.

Needs to consider:

  • Location (specific neighborhood, commute time, or nearby certain locations or features, like park)
  • Number of bedrooms and bathrooms
  • Accessibility (stairs? elevators?),
  • Parking or public transportation access
  • Inclusion of utilities and estimation of those utilities
  • Pet-friendly (pets accepted, yard for the dog, etc)
  • School district
  • Additional necessary spaces like a home office
  • Budget range

Wants will be everything else. Here’s other things to consider:

  • Amenities nearby (maybe a public swimming pool isn’t necessary, but you’d really like it)
  • How much sunlight it gets
  • How noisy the area is
  • Yard or garden
  • How many plugs / how much electricity the home can take (important if you have a lot of electronics)
  • Landlord’s management skills, policies, friendliness, and rent payment options
  • Walkability of the neighborhood (ie, Are there sidewalks? Busy streets? Well-lit? Can you take your dog for a walk without having to dodge cars?).
  • Friendliness of the neighborhood
  • Features of the home that probably aren’t essential, such as a balcony, fireplace, luxury kitchen, and so on.

Try to be relatively reasonable here. You’re probably not going to be able to find a mansion with several acres, an indoor pool, and all for half of your budget. I mean, you could; shoot for the stars, but don’t plan on it happening.

Once you’ve got your list written out, find an object that represents how you’d like to feel in your new home. Maybe it’s a picture of you and your friends having a great time on board game night or the platter you use at every family meal. It can even be an image of an apartment or home you like or a tarot card (such as the Ten of Cups).

Once you’ve assembled everything, take the object representing your emotions and place it on a table or counter that you actually eat dinner at the most. (So maybe the coffee table rather than the dining room table if you tend to eat dinner on the couch).

Place the list of wants and needs on top of the emotional object. Place a key on top of the list and infuse the key with energy to draw opportunities that fulfill the list and emotional object to you. Repeat this process with each key.

Now put the keys on a key ring and add it to your keys. If this is too heavy or bulky for you to put on your actual key ring, at least carry the keys with you whenever you leave the house.

When you find a place you like, pick one of the keys that feels “right” and mime opening the front door of the place with the key. This may be difficult to do with any level of subtly. If you don’t think you can pull it off, you can do the action with any door. You could also try turning the key in your pocket, stroking the key saying (aloud or silently) that this home will be yours, or even just imagine a specific key opening the front door of the key.

Try not to use the same key for different places. The idea is that you’re temporarily tying the key to that location. Repeating the spell with the same key can muddy the waters.

When you get a place, you can retire the keys. Hand the keys on a wall by the door, with the key that represented the home first on the key ring. Charge the keys to now bring opportunities to you of all kinds (such as financial) and to protect your new home.

Note:

  • You can do this as a batch process, but I find the individual charging of the keys leads to a better result. Each key will seek out slightly different things rather than the same thing, allowing you to find many options to choose from. Your results may differ though, so give it a try both ways, if you want.
  • It’s actually not super great to have a keychain loaded with lots of keys and things. The weight can affect locks and the ignition of your car if it’s excessive. So if you think the weight of the keys is too much, then just carry it with you when you leave the house.
  • If you don’t have a key ring (ie you have keyless entry into your home and don’t have a car), carry the keys anyway.
  • Ideally, you shouldn’t cleanse the keys after the spell’s done and you have your place. You should be able to twist the charged energy inside the keys to the new purpose of bringing opportunities and protecting the home. If energy manipulation of this level isn’t your thing, you can cleanse and charge them with your new purpose.
  • This spell uses a lot of energy manipulation. You can substitute the energy manipulation with a verbal verse or silently telling the keys what you want to happen. It works the same.

Lucky Hands Soap Spell

A daily luck spell that keeps on giving.

This spell is pretty simple, but intended to be used daily. It requires some specific items, but once it’s set up, you’ll only need to do basic maintenance to keep it going.

Ingredients:

  • A soap dispenser / soap dish (see notes)
  • Hand soap (see notes for tips)
  • Sharpie
  • A four-leaf clover
  • A coin
  • Super glue, clear nail polish, or modpodge

Purchase or adapt your bathroom soap dispenser. Ideally, this soap dispenser should be large enough to hide a coin under the base. Very ideally, the base should be designed so you can fit a coin underneath and not have the soap dispenser become unbalanced. This may take a little work to find what you’re looking for or you may need to pick a thinner or smaller coin. (An US dime instead of an US quarter, for example.)

Once you’ve found your soap dispenser, write on the bottom of the soap dispenser in sharpie a lucky symbol. This can be a four leaf clover, a key, your lucky numbers, a horseshoe, or whatever you find to be most lucky. Thinly coat the symbol in superglue, nail polish, or modpodge.

As you cover it, say the follow,

"Luck be with me every day,
Bad luck I wash away.
With each sunrise, my good luck grows.
With these lucky hands, abundance and luck flows."

When dry, place the four leaf clover over the symbol and coat it so it’s completely sealed to the base. Repeat the above verse. Let dry again and repeat again with the coin and verse.

Let dry completely, then fill the soap dispenser with soap. Make sure that you keep the soap dispenser filled.

Notes:

  • For bar soap, do the same thing above with a soap dish.
  • A liquid soap dispenser is the most aesthetically pleasing solution to this spell. An alternative is to get a soap dish (or a ring dish) and place your liquid soap bottle on top of the dish. The result is the same.
  • You can use any kind of soap here. Bars of soap or liquid soap. That being said, any nut, berry, and flower related scents are associated with luck and growing abundance. So you can totally use your jasmine-ginger-pineapple-coconut hand soap.

Prosperity Bowl Spell

This is probably one of the most useful prosperity spells I use. It’s simple, ongoing, and easy to set up and use. It’s also super subtle and great for witches who don’t like broadcasting their magic.

Ingredients:

  • Seven coins
  • Salt
  • A key
  • A bowl or vessel dedicated to prosperity

Gather together your ingredients. You don’t need much more than a pinch of two of salt and the key doesn’t need to unlock anything at all (it can be decorative).

Once you have your ingredients, place the bowl in front of you. Say:

“This bowl is a vessel of prosperity. What I place in it will grow.”

Now drop, one by one the coins into the bowl, saying,

“With these coins, my prosperity grows.”

Sprinkle the salt on top of the coins, saying,

“With this salt, my salary/paycheck grows”.

Place the key on top of the coins and say,

“With this key, my opportunities grow.”

Place this vessel somewhere accessible, but not in the way. An altar’s a great place, but even by the door or on your dresser’s good.

To keep the spell up, every so often drop some loose change into the bowl.

If/ when the bowl needs to be changed (it’ll feel dead or full when the spell’s met its end) or it’s simply full, you’ll need to dissemble the spell and cast it again.

To dissembled, remove the bowl from the space. Lay your hands on the pile of coinsand say, “these coins bring me great prosperity. May they continue to do so.” Remove them and wash them in new moon water.

Pick up the key and say “This key carries great opportunities. I unlock them now.”

Once the bowl is empty except for the salt, wash it out and cleanse it. You want it neutral again.


Increasing Luck Candle Spell

This is a simple candle spell, but perfect for people who like to do the same spell often. It’ll give you a boost of luck each time.

Ingredients:

  • A candle (your choice of color).

Pick a color candle that feels energetic or lucky to you. Yellow or gold is popular, but red or orange is a good choice too.

Sit in the dark with the candle in front of you. Light it and say the following,

Fire before me,

Increase my luck in leap and bounds,

For long as this candle is around.

Burn the candle for seven minutes, sitting with it the whole time. You can repeat the spell again if you want, or just simply sit and think about the kind of things good luck can bring.

After the seven minutes are over, blow out the candle and keep it. Next time you want to shift your luck, light the candle again, repeat the verbal spell, and burn the candle for seven minutes.

Notes:

  • When you burn the candle anymore, save the wax to make into a new candle.
  • You can dress the candle, if you like.

New Year Braid Spell

There’s so many spells you can do at the beginning of a new year. So many. Cleansing, healing, protection, wish granting, prosperity, so on, and so on. This spell starts during the new year and goes all year long.

The purpose of this spell is simple. You’re affirming or wishing for something positive or good to happen and letting go of the unwanted things each and every month. It’s a knot spell and a pretty basic one at that, but the power of this spell, the real strength of it, happens at the end of the year.

Ingredients:

  • Three strands of thread or string, any color (see notes)
  • A place to leave the braids all year long, undisturbed
  • A fire with an appropriate fire-proof /burning vessel

At the beginning of the year, start this spell. Then do the spell at the end of each month. At the end of the year, you should have 13 separate braids.

First cut three equal pieces of string or thread. As said, it can be any color, but you should probably aim for the length of each piece of string to be at least from your wrist to your elbow in length. It will mean more braiding, but it helps at the end of the year part of this spell to have the extra length.

Now, pick one string and name it the things you’d like to see continue or grow in your life. Pick another strand and name is something you’d like to let go of or release from your life. The last string should be a wish you’d like to see happen. Braid these three strands together, repeating the names of each string as you cross them.

Example: The first string is to grow your wealth, the second string is to release debts, and the third string is to save enough to visit a relative during the year. Cross the grow your wealth string over the releasing debts string, saying each of these as you cross them. Then cross the saving money string over the new middle string, the grow your wealth string. Repeat this pattern, saying each as you move the string.

When done, knot the top and bottom of the braid, if you haven’t already done so, and put the braid somewhere safe.

Do this near the end of each month, including January. (So you’ll be making two for January, and one for each month of the rest of the year). Each month, start a new braid and you can use the same string names or new ones. (So each braid can have different spells on it). Save each braid in the same spot.

At the end of the year, after you make the final braid of December, braid all of the braids together. You can look up a thirteen strand braid, if you like, but it’s complicated. You want to avoid adding your frustrating to the spell while you’re casting it, so I recommend skip the fancy braid. Instead, you can braid three months together and then braid those groups together until you have one braid. Or you can simply separate the braids into three groups and braid them all together. It’s up to you, just pick something that’s easy enough for you to do.

As you braid the final large braid, you may wish to repeat the wishes and things you’d like to grow. You could even add new things to that final final, if you like.

Once the braid is done, you may not be able to knot the ends of it. That’s OK. Instead, you can take new pieces of string and tie the top and bottom off instead.

Now get your fire going and toss the braid into the flame and say,

“What I wish to grow, will continue to grow.

What I wish to fade, will burn to ash.

What I wish for, this fire will create it true.”

The wishes and things you’d like to grow will be passed on and the things you’ve let go will disperse.

Notes:

  • You can choose any color you’d like for the string. Ideally, one string of each braid should be green (for what you’d like to grow), one should be black, gray, dark blue, or white (for what you’d like released), and one should be silver, gold, or red (for the wish), but it’s not required at all.
  • Practice your braiding before starting the spell, if you aren’t very good at it. The braid’s neatness doesn’t matter much month-to-month, but the final braid can get messy quick if you’re not a skilled hand.
  • Because there’s quite a bit of string involved during the burning part of this spell, make sure that you have a safe space to burn the braid and time to properly monitor the fire.
  • If you find that you wished for something one month and discovered you don’t want that at the end of the year, you can say that as you make the braid at the end of the year.

The Full Moon’s Invitation

Full Moon's Invitation by This Crooked Crown

 

This is a very adaptable spell. It’s used to increase the things you want more of in your life. So if you want love, you’ll add that component. If you want money, you add that. It’s used for what you want. Unlike the full moon or sun variations of this spell, this one can be used to invite things you do not currently possess into your life.

That being said, this can be a tricky spell to pull off in some people’s home environments. You need complete darkness on a new moon night.

 

Ingredients:

  • Items you want to increase in your life
  • Full Moon Water

Collect together items that represents the things you want in your life. You might have a handful of cash, a picture of a college diploma, a love letter written to a dream lover, or anything else. Think creatively and simply. If you want to travel to Aruba, put in a picture of Aruba. Don’t make things hard for yourself.

Once you have together your items, take them and place them on a table next to a window where no light will shine from outside on it. You can also leave it on the windowsill itself. Be smart about this. don’t leave a wad of cash on your windowsill and expect it to not get stolen if you live on the ground floor and leave the window open. Be as discreet as possible with your items but don’t cover them up.

Place a drop of full moon water on each item then leave them overnight. You can leave the items there until the full moon or you can take the items away immediately. You may wish to avoid spending any money used in this spell until after the full moon.

You can repeat this spell as often as you like.

 

Notes: 

  • If you’re charging water, crystals, or anything else by the new moon’s light, do this in a separate location than this spell.
  • We avoid putting the items in a bag or container so the lack of moonlight can touch them. A good middle ground is a big glass mason jar.

Happy casting!

The Stars’ Invitation

This is a very adaptable spell. It’s used to increase the things you want more of in your life. So if you want love, you’ll add that component. If you want money, you add that. It’s used for what you want. Unlike the full moon or sun variations of this spell, this one can be used to invite things you do not currently possess into your life.

That being said, this can be a tricky spell to pull off in some people’s home environments. You need complete darkness on a new moon night.

Stars' Invitation by This Crooked Crown

What you’ll need:

  • Items you want to increase in your life
  • Full Moon Water
  • A starry night
  • Quartz crystal charged by a new moon.

 

Charge a quartz crystal on a new moon. Before you go to bed (or before the sun rises) , take the crystal away and wrap it up in a cloth until the next new moon.

On a starry night of the new moon, collect together items that represents the things you want in your life. You might have a handful of cash, a picture of a college diploma, a love letter written to a dream lover, or anything else. Think creatively and simply. If you want to travel to Aruba, put in a picture of Aruba. Don’t make things hard for yourself.

Once you have together your items, take them and place them on a table next to a window where no light will shine from outside on it. You can also leave it on the windowsill itself. Be smart about this. Don’t leave a wad of cash on your windowsill and expect it to not get stolen if you live on the ground floor and leave the window open. Be as discreet as possible with your items but don’t cover them up.

Unwrap your charged quartz crystal and wave it over the items slowly, making circular passes from east to west. Make as many passes as you’d like, using a sacred, magical, or favorite number, if you like. When done, place the crystal in the middle of the collected items.

Place a drop of full moon water on each item then leave them overnight. You can leave the items there until the full moon or you can take the items away immediately. You may wish to avoid spending any money used in this spell until after the full moon.

You can repeat this spell as often as you like.

 

Notes: 

  • If you’re charging water, crystals, or anything else by the new moon’s light, do this in a separate location than this spell.
  • We avoid putting the items in a bag or container so the lack of moonlight can touch them. A good middle ground is a big glass mason jar.
  • Quartz crystal is selected because it’s a good neutral stone. If you have a moon related stone you’d prefer to use, use that.

Happy casting!
