What Makes You Happy

Stop all your busyness for a few minutes and think about what makes you happy. Finding your favorite chocolate chip cookies on sale? Getting your device to work without making you crazy? Having a civilized conversation with an annoying person in which you began to "tame" them like the Fox tamed the Little Prince? Gazing at your laundry basket filled with clean, folded clothes and realizing you'll have clean clothes for a week or longer? | This may be the simplest spell you'll ever do. Visualize a circle with yourself and what makes you happy in the center. Open your arms as for a big hug. Visualize giving that hug to what makes you happy, whether it's concrete or abstract. Say out loud and with great enthusiasm: | "Thank you, Goddess! | Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

Transformation Spell

Wednesday is governed by the planet Mercury and the gods Mercury, Hermes, and Woden, who influence communication, understanding, divination, change, luck, good fortune, and gratitude, among other things. Use this transformation spell to inventory, understand, and communicate your blessings, simultaneously increasing your level of luck, good fortune, and gratitude. | Say: | "Mercury, guide me that I may | understand my blessings." | Then make a gratitude list. Say things such as: | "I'm thankful for ____ . | I'm grateful for ____ . | I'm blessed that ____ . | Lucky, lucky me that ____ . | I'm divinely connected to ____ . | I'm so fortunate for ____ . | Thank you, thank you, thank you." | List the people, places, things, qualities, and experiences that enrich you. Notice that as you itemize your blessings, your perspective and your energy shift. Awareness and the practice of gratitude will magnetize you, attracting more good. Let Mercury help you communicate gratitude to others. Share your transformed energy and perspective, and inspire the same in others. | Repeat this technique regularly whenever you need to transform yourself.

Sticks and Stones

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can also hurt me. Words have the power of an invisible dart that can wound your heart and soul. This spell is a balm for your wounded feelings. | On a brown piece of paper that has torn edges all on sides, write down the hurtful words. Turn the paper ninety degrees and write your full name across the words nine times. In an unending circle, without lifting your pen, write: | Your words have no power over me. | When you have finished writing the words, add a pinch of eucalyptus herb or essential oil to the center of the paper. Fold the paper away from you and tie it with a thread that has been knotted nine times. Burn the paper in a heatproof container. Flush the ashes down the toilet or throw them away somewhere far from your house.

Chakra Check-Up

It may not seem like an odd number would have much to do with balance; however, the number seven is a perfect number for balance. Generally, we recognize that we have seven main chakras, and that for optimum spiritual balance, we aim to keep our chakras aligned and in balance with each other. | Today is a great day to work with your chakras, as it is the forty-ninth day of the year, seven multiplied by itself. Find or make a simple pendulum, and use it to check your chakras. First smudge or otherwise clear your pendulum. Then place it over each chakra, one at a time, and see if it spins clockwise (indicating balance) or counterclockwise (indicating imbalance). You may need to sit, stand, or lie down to comfortably reach over certain chakras. If you identify any imbalances, develop a self-care plan to help realign that chakra.

Fornacalia Movable Feast

Fornacalia is a movable feast in honor of Fornax, goddess of the furnace, oven, and kiln. This fire goddess is also related to bread making. We celebrate her in thanksgiving for the earliest, newly gathered grain crops. | Create a fire outdoors, perhaps in a barbeque pit or in some other safe manner. | In a ceramic bowl or jar, place some spelt. | Have your group gather in a circle around the fire. Call the directions together: | "Spirits of the north, we welcome you! | Spirits of the east, we welcome you! | Spirits of the south, we welcome you! | Spirits of the west, we welcome you!" | The leader says: | "Goddess of the hearth!" | The group repeats: | "Goddess of the hearth!" | The leader throws a handful of spelt toward the heavens. | The group duplicates these actions. | The circle is closed. | The group breaks bread together. | Corn bread or some other grainy loaf is shared with everyone seated in a circle.

Spell to Stop Smoking



  • Light a yellow candle. 
  • Burn some Balsam incense 
  • Bathe in warm water with mint leaves in it. 
  • Relax.

Soak in the menthol waters, inhale the sweet, clean fragrance and enjoy how it clears your nasal passages and sinus areas. 

Now picture yourself in a cloud of car exhaust fumes. Picture the foul smoke going into the same passages that previously felt so clean. Realize that every time you smoke a cigarette you are inhaling toxins and poisoning the air that you breathe. 

Visualize the smoke leaving you, and the clean menthol scent replacing it all. Do not smoke for 1 hour. Each time you perform this bathing ritual, increase your time without smoking by 10 minutes.

Sage Cleansing Spell


California white sage is one of the most powerful magical spiritual cleansers. Unfortunately it is also an endangered species. Luckily it transplants well and grows easily from seed. Grow your own supply, to preserve the plant’s existence and to preserve, purify and enhance the power of your aura. 

Burn white sage as loose incense or use it to create [an herb bundle.]
