Hi everybody! This is Zoya speaking and I have a special treat for you today. I was visiting some of my fellow Wiccan's websites and came across some spells that I didn't recognize. Well, I decided to give them the benefit of my doubt, and here they are:
Weight Loss Magick Program
What good would magick be, if it could not provide for one of women's basic needs, that of loosing weight? In fact, it is a simple deed to perform, if a bit lengthy - but what are a few days of magick, when sometimes years of efforts, strenuous gymnastics, and a suicidal diets have failed! It might even sound too good to be true, yet true it is. And this you have to believe, as it is the only pre-requisite for this magick to work: that unconditionally you believe in it. If you are half-hearted about it, you might as well give up and take up weight-lifting instead.
For this magick you need two things:
-jasmine essence and a quartz crystal
Jasmine is the flower of femininity. ( I am supposing this magick to be directed at women - of course men do want to lose some weight too. If this is the case determine from a flower section or herd section, which plant would suit you best for this magick). Jasmine is the flower of the senses, of pleasure, of physical attraction. The best suited therefore to bring you back in touch with the pleasure of being in your skin, of looking and feeling attractive, the feeling that exudes naturally from a healthy abd bakanced body. In fact, all the responsibility fro weight problems resides somewhere in the body's loss of its ability to stay balanced. Deficiencies on the emotional or mental plane are interfearing with the body's natural wisdom. When its balance is impaired its happiness is lost.
Through jasmine you may magically evoke that lost sensuous joyfullness. With the crystal quartz you focus your energies on the issue at hand and give staying power to the healing forces. Begin the process during the day, when the moon is full. Cleanse and dress yourself and sit in your magick place. Place the jasmine flowers or essence and also the quartz crystal in front of you together with the symbols of the elements (air, fire, water, and earth).
As you call the powers a different element will present itself to you according to where the imbalance is in you. That will of course change the shape of the incantation. In this example I will use the element air - on the basis of this example you can work out the different variations.
So air is in this case the element which speaks, the power which will help you with this magick. Words belong to air magick. Now inhale the scent of the jasmine and relax deeply to ask your subconscious to give you a word - the key word for this magick. For a few minutes you are sitting with your eyes closed, thinking of nothing. When you sense your ming starting to wander astray, touch the quartz - its magical powers will help immediatly to focus your attention again.
Soon the key word will form itself in your conscious mind: in this example it is "independence". It does not matter that you understand why this particular word should be your key word. Certainly a reason is there, your unconscience has its own deep wisdom - but it is not important that you should be consciously aware of its motives.
Every night, fromt the full moon to the black moon, you will rub a few drops of jasmine oil on your naked body. While doing this, let the key word "independence" stay in your mind. As you revel in the fragrance of the jasmine, relaxing images will come to your mind, suggestions as to how to expand on the independence inyour life. Maybe you will have a vision of yourself learning a foreign language. Following these suggestions is an essential part of this magick; if you want it to work you will have to find a way. The quartz crystal will help you with that. If you find yourself saying, "I have too much to do, I cannot possibly fit this in, I was never good at languages anyway," etc., touch the crystal and feel its energy for a few seconds. It will immediately give you clarity and firmness of purpose, and you will be able to see what you need to do, and have the determination to do it.
Every night, before going to sleep, rub the essence on your body, and experiment with your key word. Keep the crystal with you at all times for this period - to touch it whenever you feel that you need to do so.
Thanks to the magick of the flower, of the crystal, and of the key word given to you by the power of air, a deep change will start in this period. A change which will enable you to regain your natural balance, and the grace and beauty that goes with it.
Spell To Divine The Identity Of Your True Friends
Perform during a full moon, preferably while the moon is in Taurus or Libra.
Assemble the following:
BASIL (against evil)
LEMON and PEA (friendship)
BAY (psychic ability)
DRAGON'S BLOOD (catalyst).
Place a potted PLANT on the altar (if you are doing this spell after having been betrayed in friendship, use an ALOE plant for healing). If you wish to divine the identity of your friends in a scry or other divination method such as tarot, also have an OBSIDIAN stone on the altar; if you prefer dream divination, use FLUORITE instead.
Cast the circle and raise the power. Light a BLUE (truth and friendship) candle. Grind the herbs together; as you do so, imagine their power flowing through your arm into your body. Release the power into the stone you are using. Once you have charged the stone, sacrifice the herbs to the elements by throwing some into the wind smudging (burning) some in your cauldron, mixing some with water and pouring it away, and finally burying the rest in your potted plant. Then if you used the obsidian, scry in its surface or have it with you as you perform some other divination. If you used the fluorine, wear it to bed that night and you will dream about your friends. Remember to record your dream so you can contemplate it more fully!
Once your magickal workings are complete, bind the spell, earth the power and uncast the circle...
Love, Spellwork, & The Rede
Moon phase: Waxing to full
You will need:
Jasmine Incense or Jasmine Essential Oil
Three stones: Rose Quartz, Garnet. Carnelian
Candles: 1 red candle, a few beeswax candles (or whatever you have about your home)
In you bedroom, open your curtains. If it's warm enough, open your windows and let the moonshine and breezes in.
Light some candles around your bedroom and make yourself comfortable on your bed, placing the unlit red candle on your bedside table. Hold the stones in your power hand (the one you write with). Visualize yourself in love; your life enhanced with love, both given and received.
What type of partner do you want to share your days with? What type of relationship do you wish to have? Don't focus on who you want, rather what you want. Honesty, trust, respect, love. Casting a spell to make someone love you is wrong. It isn't fair, it violates the Wiccan Rede, and it always backfires.
Visualizing yourself with love in your life is a wonderful thing. Sharing your life with someone special is something all of us have in common. Actively taking part in its manifestation helps us to be open to the possibility of such love.
Charge the three stones with the emotions you generate and your wish to attract love into your life. Set the stones around your red candle. Light your candle and let it burn all the way down. As the candle slowly burns, the energy you charged the stones with is slowly released. Give thanks and close the rite.
You will need:
* Wishing Powder
* The Great Outdoors (This could be your back yard, a park, or forest - any place where the wishing powder will land on the earth when you release it).
* Anything else you feel you need to personalize your wish.
You will need to craft the wishing powder ahead of time. You can either do this at home in a Circle or, if you don't mind taking your mortal and pestal along with you, you can make it outside where you plan to use it. (This isn't too hard to do if you're staying in your own backyard). I used the recipe for Wishing Powder found in Scott Cunningham's book, "The Complete Book of Incense, Oils, and Brews."
2 parts sage
1 part sandlewood
1 part tonka beans (smells great!)
Grind, mix, and empower.
If you're feeling adventurous, customize your wishing powder to the wish you'll be making. (Example: Crushed rose petals for bringing love into your life).
Find a spot to make our wishes from. Take a handful of the wishing powder and begin concentrating on your wishes. (Please do not put yourself in danger to make a wish. A wish is just as powerful whether it's made standing on a rock on the side of a steep hill or standing in a field). Put your energy and wish into the powder you are holding. When it feels like you can no longer hold the energy, let it fly. As the powder settles to the ground, visualize your wishes joining with the Earth, gaining power and strength.
As always, remember the Rule of Three when making your wish. After putting the energy out there, it's impossible to call it back. Remember the old saying, "Be careful what you wish for, you may get it."
**Many of you have inquired about where to get Tonka Beans (as needed for the above whishing spell). You can do an easy seach for them through any search engine to find out where to get them. One place I located was at J.Crows. Also here is an informative page on what a Tonka Bean is. I hope these two pages help out a little bit. You might be able to ask at your local health food store or Craft shop to see if they carry them also.**
To Maintain Unconditional Love
Z Budapest, Grandmother Moon
Every Full Moon light a white (blessing) and a pink (happiness) and black candle in gratitude to the Fates. View the Moon before you light them, then say:
The kind Fates have blessed my home,
The kind Fates have blessed my heart,
The kind Fates have blesed my loved ones,
I offer thanks with a humble heart.
I thank the Goddess for my life,
I thank the Goddess for my love.
I thank the Goddess for continued blessings already on their way.
Also burn some high-quality incense, the best you have. Do this each month to make your good fortune last.
"The Witch's Bottle"
It is possible for the nicest person the have enemies. Some people may be jealous of you; misunderstand you; just dislike the way you do your hair! Many people have said, "I don't need protection. I don't have any enemies." But there are the above-type "enemies" that you wouldn't even know about. They may well be as sweet as pie to you, to your face, but be bitterly jealous, or whatever it may be, behind your back. How do you protect yourself against their negativity? How to you protect yourself against a warped individual who decides to work magick against you? You don't want to hurt them, but you certainly want to protect yourself.
The best way to deal with this is a "Witch's Bottle". This is an ancient defense, known throughout folklore. It is made on an individual basis. The idea is to protect yourself and at the same time, send back whatever is being sent at you. You should never be the originator of harm, nor seek revenge, but you can protect yourself.
To make a Witch's Bottle, take a regular jar such as a 6 oz instant-coffee jar. Half fill it with sharp objects such as broken glass, old razor blades, rusty nails and screws, pins, needles, etc. When the jar is half-filled with these objects, urinate in it to fill it. If a woman is preparing her bottle, she might also want to get some menstrual blood into it. Now put the top on the jar and seal it with tape. It should then be buried in the ground, at least twelve inches deep, in an isolated spot where it can remain undisturbed. If you live in a city, then it will be worth a trip out of town to find some remote spot to bury it.
So long as the bottle remains buried and unbroken, it will protect you from any evil directed against you. This applies whether the evil is directed by an individual or a group of people. Not only will it protect you, but it will reflect back that evil on the sender(s). So the more he/she tries to harm you, the more he/she will be harmed her/himself.
Such a bottle should last almost indefinitely, but to be on the safe side, I'd recommend redoing the ritual one a year. With the present rate of housing development you never know when your bottle may be dug up or inadvertently smashed.

This should be used to prevent someone from giving away a secret. It is again a form of sympathetic magick. A clay or wax figure may be used, or a clothe poppet (voodoo doll). In the ritual it is named for the person whom it represents. Then, withappropriate word, the Witch takes a needle threaded with a twenty-one inch length of red silk, and sews up the mouth of the figure. She finishes off by winding the thread all around the body of the figure. The concentration is on the fact that the person is unable to speak on the forbidden subject - whatever the secret may be that is being safeguarded. At the end of the ritual the poppet is stored away in a safe place, wrapped in a piece of white cloth. So long as the thread remains in place, the person represented is bound.
Candle and Crystal Spell for Successful Study
(Taken from Vanessa's Pagan Place)
Anoint two yellow candles with lemon oil and light them. Take a citrine quartz, anoint with lemon oil also, and place in front of the candles so that the candlelight shines on it. Chant the following:
'Charge the stone with candlelight
To fill my mind with wisdom bright
To keep my mind alert and clear
So that no bane can interfere
With the process of my brain
So what I read is knowledge gained
For all my life to stay with me
This is my will, so mote it be!'
Let the candles burn and charge the stone while you study. Keep the stone with you when you need to give papers, take exams or study.
A Spell to Forget Lost Love
As all things must surely have to end, and things must be left behind in the past, it's best that we remember to carry our good feelings and happy times with us, and to discard the remnants of things that need be left alone. This spell is one of my very own and it works well to be rid of the pain that breaking up with someone you love tends to bring forth. All you need is a picture of your ex-boyfriend (or ex-girlfriend), a lighter (I prefer a blow-torch, but matches may be supplemented), a heat safe container, a bittersweet root and a red ouanga bag (gris gris, hoodoo, yada yada...).
I find that casting this spell on the night of a waning moon or new moon is best, when it's dark is always more peaceful, and you won't be disturbed. Place the picture of your ex in the heat safe container and light it on fire, as it burns down to ashes, meditate on your hurt and suffering leaving you while it turns to ashes and dust, chant the following with conviction:
"As you leave my life,
I leave behind my pain.
As you burn to dust,
So does all my hurt.
As I leave you in my past,
I leave with you my sorrow."
Repeat this chant until his/her picture is reduced to ashes. You may now throw these ashes as far from your house as possible, or bury them in a remote location with your pain and bad memories of the breakup. Before you go to sleep for the night, take to bittersweet root and touch it to your forhead (third eye position -thousand leafed lotus), it's always best to have let out all your emotions earlyer while doing the burning, but if you feel you need to cry or scream and let out those last bits of remorse, feel free to do so now. Let the root soak up all your bad energies, then wrap it in the red cloth or put it in the sack, tying it with three knots, and then place it under your pillow or under your mattress near your head. Sleep with it there until your ex is a piece of your dead past, and they no longer affect you as an individual.
