“How do you spell love?” ~Piglet “You don’t spell it, you feel it.” ~Pooh

So, I did a love spell last night. Normally, I would have done a love spell on the full moon, but the new moon in Aquarius held great energy for this work. (See more here.) I don’t normally do love spells, I like to let things take its own course, but I am floundering here, and I needed a magickal boost. (More like desperate help! See post “I had a revelation.”)
I worked a petition spell that I got from the Temple of Witchcraft store at Templefest this year. It was from the book “The Witch’s Heart”, by Christopher Penzcak, one of my teachers. (PS he is amazing!)
I am not one to just copy a spell out of a book and do it, no matter how awesome it is. If I am going to do magick, I either write my own spells, or I change them up a bit. I am going to share with you my take on the spell, well all except the details, those are just for me and the Goddess.
Before performing the ritual, we cast a circle and call in the elements to the four quarters. This time, I mixed it up a bit. I called in Aphrodite, and the four elements but, instead of a circle and four quarters, I cast a heart. While casting it three times, I walked around it reciting all the things I am looking for in a relationship.
Next I wrote out the petition spell, and cleansed the space with specially prepared incense. I lit dressed candles, a red one for passion, a pink one for love, and one blessed with the energy of Venus. I braided a three string cord, adding a heart charm as I recited the spell. I blessed a rose quartz point with the same spell, and then tied the petition rolled up with the cord. I will carry both with me, until the spell is complete.
Now the most important part of any spell is real world action. I can’t just sit in my living room and hope that Mr. Right will just knock on the door. That just doesn’t happen. So I date, and I let my friends set me up on dates, and I see what happens. Cross your fingers for me!!!
After I cast the spell, something interesting did happen. I was speaking with a new guy from online and we set a date for next Tuesday, February 12th. We hit it off well, and I am pretty excited. Funny thing about this date though, it was the day that I started dating my husband, and it was the day I started dating the greatest love my my life, John. For some reason, this date is important to my romantic life. Yes the relationships ended, but so many loving memories were made with both. I am excited to see what happens!
