Beltane Love Spell

Love-spell-edit

As mentioned in my previous post Beltane is the perfect time for love magic. It should go without saying that you can’t make someone love you, using magic or otherwise. Free will is not a force to be tampered with. So I use the words “love spell” only loosely here. What I do mean is a spell that celebrates love and sets out the intention to bring lovers closer together. Whether that intention is to strengthen or rekindle romance in an existing relationship or perhaps to create opportunities for feelings to develop with someone new is entirely down to the caster.

The spell incorporates yet another lovely Beltane tradition: weaving. Weaving is symbolic of the union of two things to create a third so the symbolism is perfect for love and fertility magic. This is a super simple spell and is only intended as a bit of fun. As always it is down to the individual witch to decide what intention and energy to bring to it. To perform this spell, you will need:

  • Β Two ribbons or strands of cord. String will do or you can even use your hair if you have nothing else to hand. However, it’s an added bonus if the colours of the cord correspond to the magic e.g pink or red for love and romance, silver and gold or green and purple to represent the God and Goddess, whichever works best for you.
  • Rose water, rose oil, Patchouli oil or lavender oil. Again, it’s dealers choice here. I like to you use rose water because I love the smell and it is so reminiscent of love and romance but lavender is also great for love and Patchouli for sex, fertility and potency.
  • Optional extras: coloured candles, rose petals, rose quartz, incense, anything that helps set the mood for the spell you are about to perform.

To begin the spell anoint the ends of both cords in rose water or your chosen essential oil. Then, focusing your mind on your lover and your intentions for the spell, begin to weave the two strands together. You may find it helps to knot them together first. It doesn’t have to be a fancy knot, just a simple over and through will work fine. Visualize yourself becoming closer to your lover, being open with one another and finding that true connection between you. As you do this continue to weave the cords and chant, either out loud or in your head;

Let love grow, let hearts soar,

Bring me closer to the one I adore

Continue until the strands are completely woven together.

The finished weave is the perfect addition to your Beltane altar and is an ideal offering/ wedding gift to the Goddess and God.Β  And remember love is a gift, use it wisely!

      1. Yep. Australia. Was strange coming off the full moon. Several people had weird occurrences coupled with difficulty sleeping.
        I keep an altar and meditate twice daily.

  2. I like Mabon and the winter solstice. Pretty run down right now with a tooth infection and old knee injuries. Meditation helps with healing. My doctor is on my case about meditating regularly.
    I also have an old cat who runs this house. She is the best healer of all 🐺

    1. Mabon is probably my second favourite, probably because Autumn is my favourite time of year! Sorry to hear you haven’t been well, sending healing energy your way. Hope you’re on the mend soon. I’m sure you will be with the help of a beloved familiar 🐺

      1. Good on you. Cheyenne is 15 this August. She has been eating again which is good. She has renal failure and I have to go interstate for a few days soon so I want her healthier to stay at the vets. I got her at 10 weeks and she was the only survivor of her litter. She likes me around when she eats.
        We each do our jobs. Autumn is good for reflection.

    This was originally a post I wrote for Beltane but since today is Valentines Day it seemed a good time to share a little love (magic) πŸ˜‰ Happy Valentines Day everyone! Whether you’re spending it alone, with friends or family, or that special someone, take some time to celebrate love, including self-love, and think about how we can bring more of it into our lives.
