This spell was first developed in 1989 by a group in a college dorm. It seems to draw many people, even if only one person is specified. The targets drawn, are often obsessed with the practitioner for about 2 months and the passion is intense. The 2 month time, as well as the lack of specified target focus may have been the inexperience of the practitioners involved. The group had only been practicing Witches for about 3 years.
You will need:
A clear mind and focused goal
1 large (7 day) red candle
2 small white votive candles
Rose scented bar soap
About 1 Tablespoon sea salt (best) or table salt (ok)
Purified, fresh spring, rainwater, collected dew or tap water
Timing: Within the 3 days before the full moon, and not after the full moon. Fridays are good, but not necessary. This will work at any time, but having the full moon does seem to amplify it.
Prepare the ritual area and spell components. On the red candle, inscribe a name or Magickal symbols and runes, or place a photograph of the target under it (letters from the person work too) Bathe or shower using the rose scented soap. Clarify your mind at this time, wash away negativity as with any ritual bath, and focus your goal. Reinforce your circle of protection. Make sure you know the entire ritual, go over it in your mind. Know your “lines” or memorize the one’s included here.
Go outside or to a window or door. Clear your mind and reinforce your personal protective circle or aura. In your own words, state or think your goal. In a clean container (non plastic or metal) dissolve the salt in about 2 cups (500 ml) of water. Use the consecration, cleansing, or blessing techniques of your choice to charge the water, or use this one:
Hold the container of water so you can see a reflection on it’s surface. Try to reflect the moon back to you. Take a deep breath. Draw the energy of the moon into the water by visualizing a stream of white light pouring into the water. Take the salt in your projective hand (usually right, or writing hand) and while slowly letting it fall into the water, move your hand clockwise over the surface three times while saying slowly and clearly: (you can repeat each words of power group 3X if desired)
“Water pure and clean
Protect me from all unseen
The love I call I will never wean.”
Dip your fingertips, wand, or athame into the water and anoint each chakra point, or use your fingers, a bunch of herbs (patchouli great!) or other tool to sprinkle the water over yourself.
Light the two white votive candles now:
He/She will be here soon,
morning, night, or afternoon.”
Prepare to light the red candle as you say this:
will not expire,
passion burn as I light this fire!”
Hold your focused goal in your mind the entire time you are performing this rite, but double your efforts now, hold the lit red candle (both hands or projective hand) and force everything you’ve got into it. Do NOT allow any doubt in at this point! (if ever!) When you’ve “spent” your energy projecting it into the candle, set down the candle (on top of photo or letters if included) and prepare to light the patchouli incense while saying:
will not relent,
in calling forth the one who’s meant.”
Confirm your goal once again. Allow the candles to burn down (make sure you have a fireproof surface) and close the rite in your own manner or by saying:
“So Mote it Be!” (So be it, Let it be so, As I will so mote it be, etc.)
Personally, I include the following optional closing, or some variation of it, to most of my workings:
“Let all aspect be true and right,
freewill remains with all this night.
Let this spell not turn on me,
and harm no one, so mote it be!”
The red candle should take 3 days to a week and a half to burn down, and by that time, you should have some prospects! If not, go over the 4 checklist questions, and try again. Some of the practitioners I’ve known prefer to repeat this entire spell each night for the three nights prior to the full moon. They leave the red candle burning, but refocus the goal and the remainder of the working again each night.
