Busy Bee Spell • #13daysofmagic

The Samhain season seems like it never has enough time for us to get everything done. I designed this spell for one of my partners who had an extra-long list of things to do a couple years ago. We have used this spell successfully many times to finish the list. This spell has simple ingredients and is made for the witch on the go.

Make a list of the things you have to do. Make it realistic to what you think you can get done in the time you want the spell to affect you. This means prioritizing your list so you are doing the things that are urgent or just need doing. This spell makes you very focused, if you give yourself a huge task you may have trouble sleeping if you didn’t finish! You will have a one-track mind as long as your things on the list aren’t done. You can always set aside those things for tomorrow’s list.

Once you have your prioritized list, make your self some tea and get some honey. Place the cup of tea on top of your list and begin to stir in the honey clockwise.  Say this or something of your own making.

“I mix the honey with my tea
To conjure forth my busy bee
finish projects quickly one by one
no distractions until I am done
oh busy bee, oh busy bee,
this list of tasks set me free!”

Now get to work on that list of tasks while you drink your tea. You will be surprised what you can get done. Blessed Bee!

To Know Your Heart’s Wisdom • #13daysofmagic

We live in a busy time where we get mixed messages about everything and sometimes it is hard to figure out what it is we truly want in our lives. I designed this spell while at the beach and thinking about the wisdom of clearing our mind and listening to the heart. Not all of us do this well, so thus the spell.
In the sand near the ocean where you know that the ocean will wash away your sigil in the next cycle of the tide. Draw the rune Lagaz for emotional and intuitive knowledge and to call upon the power of water, then draw Wunjo along the vertical part of Lagaz to know your deepest wishes and to have them come true. Trace Ansuz the rune of wisdom and knowledge as it appears in this bind rune. Then draw a heart around the whole thing.

“Lagaz make it flow
Wunjo make it go
Ansuz make me know
I let my heart discide
true wisdom is my guide
true path shown
in an oceans tide”

leave the place and leave off thinking about the problem. Sleep on it and your heart will show you the way.

A Birthday Letter to Your Astrological Angel #13daysofmagic

So my birthday starts of this whole #13daysofmagic series done by multiple awesome witches. I always do at least one special ritual on my birthday: It is the day I recharge the pentacle I wear all the time.

This year I wanted to start a new tradition based on something I read in Richard Webster’s book Praying With Angels. In his book he gives the notion of writing a letter to the angel or archangel that rules your astrological sign or birth-month. This letter is to say thanks for any interactions you have had, to thank them for watching over you, to ask them to answer questions and, best of all, to answer a request. Why not? It is your birthday after all!

You can make a request for yourself or for someone else in the letter. On or around your birthday, clear and cleanse yourself with a spiritual bath or smudging, Get out a pen, paper, and an envelope. Start by addressing your angel. Then go into giving them gratitude for all they have done for you. Gratitude opens us up to greater blessings. Make your request and then thank them again for listening. Lastly sign your name, seal the letter into the envelope, and address it to your angel.

Place the letter either on your altar or under your pillow. The pillow option can help you get dreams from your angel whereas putting it on your altar helps you contact them in meditation. Either way burn the envelope with the letter in it when you feel like it has been received or within two weeks of its writing.  I love incantations to focus my intentions so I might say over the envelope:

angel of the goddess
my angel so dear
receive this letter
my words you will hear
for my highest good you act
give a dream or a sign
as proof of our pact
between us and the divine.

You will receive a dream or sign that your letter has been received.
