Love Spells - Use the power of love magick!

Love spells are something we witches both embrace and hold at a respectable arm’s length. Love magick is important, yet it can be harmful to those who don’t properly need to work with it.

It becomes vitally important as a witch to draw the line between empowerment and manipulation so a deep connection to the powerful energies of love magic is necessary.

These magick spells should be used responsibly. If you’re unsure if the time is right to work one, take a bit more time with yourself to make sure a spell is the best course of action, then, work these spells from a place of power and confidence to see their full effect come through in your spellwork.

A self love spell

Self love is really important! Without love for our selves it becomes difficult to access our true power and we can fall into the trap of people pleasing and a feeling of ambivalence in our lives. 

This spell brings your attention and intention to the way you address yourself and the amount of love you’re able to bestow on yourself. It can also be cast on others to who you are close.

This really simple self love spell working from My Pagan Life is great to use to increase your overall love, confidence and appreciation of yourself.  Self love is so important to any witch because it’s from within that we create power to affect the world without. Try it out!

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

  1. Pink or red candle
  2. Tool for carving
  3. Rose ritual oil or similar
  4. Dried Cinnamon
  5. Item for charging

STEP ONE: CARVE THE CANDLE

Take some time to think about a symbol that is meaningful to you in regards to self-love. Hearts, pentacles, or the first letter of your name work really well! Use your carving tool to engrave your symbol of choice on your candle.

STEP TWO: DRESS THE CANDLE

Next, anoint your candle in a manner that is fitting to you and your personal taste. Some like to dress the entire candle with ritual oil to infuse intention, but feel free to simply apply your oil or dressing to the symbol only.

Lastly, take the dried cinnamon and sprinkle it over the candle while you draw in and work with the energy of the herb.

STEP THREE: LIGHT THE CANDLE

Light the candle with the intention of self love in mind and dwell on all the positive, loving and uplifting attributes of who you are now and who you’ll be when the candle has finished burning.

Bring those powerful self-love feelings into your heart and let them burn with the flame of the candle.

A RED CANDLE LOVE SPELL

Red and pink candles are quite often used in love spells because they evoke the thoughts and emotions surrounding love.

If you want a hot and fiery spell, this red candle love spell is a great place to start if you love working with candle magick. 

Here is a simple red candle love spell from The House Of Magick that asks you to rethink your mindset around love while placing powerful intention into the love that you want to attract in your life.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

  1. Two red taper candles
  2. Red ribbon or yarn
  3. Carving tool
  4. Candle dressing

STEP ONE: DRESS THE CANDLES

First, you’ll want to carve the name of each person involved in this spell, one on each candle. You may wish to also carve the petition or desired outcome for this spell as well. Cleanse and dress your candles however you wish to purify and set your intention for this love spell upon them. 

STEP TWO: BIND THE CANDLES

With your yarn, begin to tie the candles together with knots. You may wish to use seven knots, but choose a number that is meaningful to you. Set an intention as you tie the knots, such as “With this knot, I bind you both in love.”

STEP THREE: LIGHT THE CANDLES

Light the two candles that you’ve bound together and brought your intention into. Let them burn together until they are finished.

You may choose to dress the plate or altar that they stand on with love items like rose petals, honey, sugar etc., or work divination such as tarot while these two candles burn.

A LOVE SPELL THAT WORKS IMMEDIATELY

If fast love is your goal for yourself or for someone else, this spell is a wonderful way to bring about romantic changes quickly. 

Be prepared for the result to work and make sure this working is something you’ve approached with much thought and insight. The results will be fast, and often things that work quickly have unexpected results if we don’t take time with them.

This is a really great love magic spell that works immediately from Pinky Pinkstar Doll that will bring love and passion to you. It’s a great way to bring the love and devotion of someone back into your life.

Finally, add the Jezebel root to the side of the candle.

STEP TWO: ADD NAMES TO THE JAR
