A Spell is a Wish Your Heart Makes…


__12_-_ITALY_-_birthday_cake_with_candles_3 As a child my mother would put candles on my birthday cake, light them and tell me to make a wish. It was taboo to tell anyone what you wished for or the wish would not be granted. What powerful magic that was; surrounded by family and friends and making a wish. And we believed, all of us, that it would come true – if it was possible – so mote it be.

I grew up Catholic and so it was not unusual to me to go into a church, light a candle and say a prayer. Depending on the request I would light candles to Mother Mary, Jesus, St. Anthony etc. Before I lit the candle I would think about my request and then I would implore the chosen saint to hear my prayer and to grant it if possible – so mote it be.

I often get asked do I really believe spells work? My answer is yes. Yes, to the birthday candles on the cake. Yes, to the candles I light in church. Yes, to the candles I light asking for peace, protection, love, prosperity, good health and more within my wiccan salt circle. And always…if it is possible – so mote it be.

lighted-candles-on-the-river-photography-hd-wallpaper-1920x1080-9899 When doing “candle magic” it is important to remember that it is the belief with which you ask, the acceptance that all be as it is meant to be and the reverence with which the request is made to whatever higher power whose aid you are invoking that are important.

Could you make a wish without a candle? Of course you could. But, really what candle magic does is focus your attention and hopefully the attention of the divinity on your request. The world is a busy, chaotic place. It is often difficult to take time to make a proper wish, request, prayer, spell. Working candle magic takes time and concentration and that is the beauty of it, for while you are working on your intention the outside world gets a bit quieter and the inner world of spirit can speak and be heard.

Candle Carving -

Often a sigil is carved into the candle top or side. A sigil is a symbol used in f554bf5b25367d2b4fa74afb5a942382magic. In modern usage it refers to a symbolic representation of the magician’s desired outcome. A sigil can be a mandala, a veve and even words carved into the candle. (It can even be a doodle that comes to you while you are sitting and thinking of your wish.)Carving the sigil into the candle helps to focus your concentration on your intended outcome. After the sigil is carved the candle is then anointed with the essential oil appropriate to the request. An example would be to use Money Drawing Oil for a Prosperity candle. Sometimes the candle is then hand glittered to bring out the design. All of this takes time, energy and concentration – components essential in good spell casting or wish making.

Candle Painting -

A sigil can also be painted onto the candle. You can do this free hand or by using a stencil you have created prior to beginning your work. The same power of concentration will apply when painting your sigil.

hand-colored-candles-christmas-craft-step2-photo-150-FF0106GIFTSA04 Before you begin to paint the candle be sure to dab a small amount of rubbing alcohol on a lint-free cloth and wipe down the candle thoroughly to remove some of the oils and sheen from the surface. This process makes it easier for paint to adhere to the wax. 

Combine equal portions of *candle-painting medium and *acrylic paint in a small disposable container or on a paper plate, stirring with a paintbrush. *(available at craft and hobby stores)

Paint your desired design on the candle using an artist’s brush and the acrylic paint mixture. Allow the paint to dry completely before handling or before painting a second color that touches the first.

Making the Wish – Casting the Spell

Once your candle is ready concentrate on your wish and light the candle. If you have a spell written you can read it aloud or you may just want to speak directly to the deity. Be sure to be respectful. Be sure to say please and thank you and don’t forget – so mote it be.

Blueberry Magic…


imageBlueberries are edible members of the heath family. They prefer acidic soil and plenty of sunlight and do best on high ground. In America there are two predominant forms of the blueberry bush – the low bush blueberry and the high bush blueberry. Blueberries also come in a variety of sizes from the small “wild” blueberry (or huckleberry) to the larger “cultivated” blueberry we find at the grocer.

As if size was not enough of a disguise, the Blueberry also goes by a variety of names – Blueberry,  Box Huckleberry_2Blueberry, Low Bush Blueberry, Dwarf Bilberry,  Bilberry, Black Whortles, Bleaberry, Bollebar, Bulberry, Huckleberry, Hurtleberry, Hurts, Trackleberry, Whinberry and Whortleberry.  English immigrants related the New World blueberry to their whortleberries: the Danes, to bilberries; the Swedes to their blåbär. People from northern Germany recognized their bickberren; those from southern Germany, blauberren. Later arrivals from Europe, such as the Russians, also had a frame of reference for these berries whose blue reflected the promising blue skies of the New World.

Native Americans held the wild blueberry in very high esteem, due to the fact that the blossom end of each blueberry forms a five points star. It was believed the “Great Spirit” sent these star berries to relieve the hunger of children during a famine.

Blueberry-Tea They also used blueberries for medicinal purposes and made a strong aromatic tea from the root. It was used as a relaxant during childbirth. Early medical books show this same tea was used by wives of settlers during labor. Blueberry juice was used for “old coughs” and tea made from Wild Blueberry leaves was believed to be a good tonic to help purify the blood.

Recently studies have found that blueberry consumption may lower cholesterol. Other studies have shown that wild blueberry juice may benefit the brain, improve memory and learning in older adults, while possibly reducing blood sugar and symptoms of depression.

Blueberries have many applications for your magical work! You may use the fruit whole, crushed, dried or powdered. Because blueberries are a protection herb/fruit they can be added to any protection spell ingredient list or into protection oil and incense as well!  

To keep evil and undesirables away from your property or from entering the home, place blueberries under your doormat.

BabyFeetStompingGrapes Protecting Children: Mash the berries into a pulp and stain your baby’s hands and feet; you can do only the feet if you are worried about public views.  You can even make this into a fun thing for your kids by having them mash the berries with their feet!

Strengthening your Aura & Protecting your Physical Body: Eat the berries on the day or night of a full moon.

Protecting your home: Crush the dried blueberries into a powder and place it under the doormat of your home.

Protecting yourself from Psychic/Emotional Attack: Make a delicious blueberry pie and eat it!  No better spell than this, I’d say!  This gets the blueberries energy into your aura/energy field and boosts its psychic protection. Blueberries embody the esoteric principles of calm acceptance, peace, and a protected environment. For centuries, witches have eaten blueberry tarts when under psychic attack to protect themselves.

Protection Spells: Add the dried berries to protection sachets, lotions, bath salts, incense and oils. Make amulets out of the whole dried berries by gluing them to an already made amulet or stringing them into a necklace, or make protection powder out of the crushed, dried berries.
