Aphrodite, Greek Goddess of Love

Aphrodite was the Greek goddess of love and sexuality. According to legend, she was born fully formed from the white sea form that arose when the god Uranus was castrated. She came ashore on the island of Cyprus, and later was married off by Zeus to Hephaistos, the deformed craftsman of Olympus. Despite being married to Hephaistos, Aphrodite took her job as a goddess of sexuality seriously, and had a multitude of lovers, but one of her favorites was the warrior god Ares. At one point, Helios, the sun god, caught Ares and Aphrodite romping around, and told Hephaistos what he had seen. Hephaistos caught the two of them in a net, and invited all the other gods and goddesses to laugh at their shame... but they had none whatsoever. In fact, Aphrodite and Ares had a good laugh about the whole thing, and didn't particularly care what anyone thought. In the end, Ares ended up paying Hephaistos a fine for his inconvenience, and the whole matter was dropped.
At one point, Aphrodite had a fling with Adonis, the young hunter god. He was killed by a wild boar one day, and some tales indicate that the boar might have been a jealous Ares in disguise.
Aphrodite had several sons, including Priapus, Eros, and Hermaphroditus.
In many myths and legends, Aphrodite is portrayed as self-absorbed and cranky. It would seem that like many of the other Greek gods, she spent a lot of time meddling in the affairs of mortals, mostly for her own amusement. She was instrumental in the cause of the Trojan War; Aphrodite offered Helen of Sparta to Paris, the prince of Troy, and then when he saw Helen for the first time, Aphrodite made sure he was inflamed with lust, thus leading to Helen's abduction and a decade of war.
A festival was held regularly to honor Aphrodite, appropriately called the Aphrodisia. At her temple in Corinth, revelers often paid tribute to Aphrodite by having rambunctious sex with her priestesses. The temple was later destroyed by the Romans, and not rebuilt, but fertility rites appear to have continued in the area.
In addition to her association with the sea and shells, Aphrodite is connected with dolphins and swans, apples and pomegranates, and roses.

Hecate - Dark Goddess of Magic & Sorcery

Hecate (sometimes spelled Hekate) was originally a Thracian, and pre-Olympian Greek goddess, and ruled over the realms of earth and fertility rituals. As a goddess of childbirth, she was often invoked for rites of puberty, and in some cases watched over maidens who were beginning to menstruate. Eventually, Hecate evolved to become a goddess of magic and sorcery. She was venerated as a mother goddess, and during the Ptolemaic period in Alexandria was elevated to her position as goddess of ghosts and the spirit world.
Much like the Celtic hearth goddess Brighid, Hecate is a guardian of crossroads, and often symbolized by a spinning wheel. In addition to her connection to Brighid, she is associated with Diana Lucifera, who is the Roman Diana in her aspect as light-bearer. Hecate is often portrayed wearing the keys to the spirit world at her belt, accompanied by a three-headed hound, and surrounded by lit torches.
The epic poet Hesiod tells us Hecate was the only child of Asteria, a star goddess who was the aunt of Apollo and Artemis. The event of Hecate's birth was tied to the reappearance of Phoebe, a lunar goddess, who appeared during the darkest phase of the moon.
Today, many contemporary Pagans and Wiccans honor Hecate in her guise as a Dark Goddess, although it would be incorrect to refer to her as an aspect of the Crone, because of her connection to childbirth and maidenhood. It's more likely that her role as "dark goddess" comes from her connection to the spirit world, ghosts, the dark moon, and magic. She is known as a goddess who is not to be invoked lightly, or by those who are calling upon her frivolously. She is honored on November 30, the night of Hecate Trivia, the night of the crossroads.

Hestia, Greek Goddess of the Hearth

The Greek goddess Hestia watched over domesticity and the family, and was honored with the first offering at any sacrifice made in the home. On a public level, Hestia's flame was never allowed to burn out. The local town hall served as a shrine for her -- and any time a new settlement was formed, settlers would take a flame from their old village to the new one.
As the equivalent of the Roman Vesta, Hestia was known as the virginal daughter of Cronus and Rhea, and sister of Zeus, Poseidon and Hades. She tended the fires of Mount Olympus, and because of her devotion to her duty as hearthkeeper, she managed to stay out of a lot of the shenanigans of the other Greek gods. She doesn't appear in too many of the Greek myths or adventure stories.
Hestia took her role as a virgin seriously as well, and in one legend, the lustful god Priapus tried to take advantage of her.
As Priapus crept to her bed, planning on raping Hestia, a donkey brayed loudly, waking the goddess. Her screams woke the other Olympians, much to Priapus' great embarrassment. In some stories, it is said that Priapus believed Hestia to be a nymph, and that the other gods hid her by turning her into a lotus plant.
As a hearth goddess, Hestia was also known for her hospitality. If a stranger came calling and seeking sanctuary, it was considered an offense against Hestia to turn the person away. Those who followed her were obligated to provide shelter and food to anyone truly in need. It was also emphasized that female guests given sanctuary were not to be violated -- again, a grave offense against Hestia.
Hestia is traditionally represented by an image of a lamp with a perpetual flame. Today, some Greek reconstructionists, or Hellenic Pagans, continue to honor Hestia and all that she stands for.

A Spell to Win Someone’s Love

Please perform this spell with caution, and carefully consider the karma involved in messing with someone’s free will.

For this spell to win a person’s love, you will need:

Two red candlesOne gold candleOlive oilA piece of white cloth

Perform this spell during a full moon.

Take the olive oil and rub it into the candles, dressing them from centre to bottom and then from the centre to the top. Place the gold candle in front of you, and the red candles to either side of the gold one. Place yourself in a meditative state and think of the person whose love you wish to win. Immerse yourself in feelings of love and imaging drawing this person towards you. Now light the candles, and repeat the following incantation:

Here is (person’s name). This candle is him/her
This flame burns, as his/her spirit burns
I am my beloved’s, and my beloved is mine.

Let the candles burn down all night (be careful that they are in a place where nothing can catch fire!). Once they are burnt down to the ends, place them in the white cloth, and put it in a magical place, for example your altar. This will win the love of the person you wish to attract.

Athena, Greek Goddess of Wisdom and War

Athena was born a child of Zeus by his first wife, Metis, a goddess of wisdom. Because Zeus was afraid Metis might bear him a son who was mightier than himself, he swallowed her. While trapped inside Zeus, Metis began to make a helmet and robe for her unborn daughter. All that clanging and pounding caused Zeus to suffer terrible headaches, so he called for his son Hephaestus, the smith of the gods. Hephaestus split his father's skull open to relieve the pain, and out popped Athena, fully grown and clad in her new robe and helmet.

The cult of Athena emerged very early, as part of her position as a patroness of the city of Athens. She became Athens' protector after a dispute with her uncle, Poseideon, the god of the sea. Both Athena and Poseidon really liked a certain city on the coast of Greece, and both of them claimed ownership.

Finally, to solve the dispute, it was agreed that whoever could present the city with the best gift would forever be patron. Athena and Poseidon went to the Acropolis, where Poseidon struck the cliffside with his mighty trident. A spring welled up, which amazed and impressed the citizenry. However, the spring was salt water, so it wasn't really of much use to anyone.
Athena then presented the people with a simple olive tree. Although it wasn't as impressive as a spring, it was far more useful, because it presented the people with oil, food, and even wood. In thanks, they named the city Athens. Some people in Greece still worship Athena and pay homage to her at the Acropolis.

Athena is typically portrayed with her companion, Nike, the goddess of victory. She is also depicted carrying a shield bearing the head of the Gorgon. Because of her association with wisdom, Athena is usually shown with an owl nearby.

As a goddess of war, Athena often shows up in Greek legend to assist various heroes -- Heracles, Odysseus and Jason all got a helping hand from Athena. In classical myth, Athena never took any lovers, and was often revered as Athena the Virgin, or Athena Parthenos. This is where the Parthenon temple got its name. In some older stories, Athena is connected as either the mother or adoptive mother of Erichthonius, after an attempted rape by her brother, Hephaestus. In some versions of the story, she is a virgin mother, who raised Erichthonius after he was given to her by Gaia.

In another tradition, she is known as Pallas Athena, with Pallas actually being a separate entity. It's not clear whether Pallas is actually Athena's father, sister, or some other relationship. However, in each story, Athena goes into battle and accidentally kills Pallas, then taking the name for herself.

Although technically, Athena is a warrior goddess, she is not the same sort of war god that Ares is. While Ares goes to war with frenzy and chaos, Athena is the goddess who helps warriors make wise choices that will eventually lead to victory.

Today, many Hellenic Pagans still honor Athena in their rituals.

Hera, Greek Goddess of Marriage

Hera is known as the first of Greek goddesses. As wife of Zeus, she's the leading lady of all the Olympians. Despite her husband's philandering ways -- or perhaps because of them -- she is the guardian of marriage and the sanctity of the home.

Hera fell in love with her brother, Zeus, but it wasn’t until she managed to get hold of some love magic from Aphrodite that he returned the feelings. It is, quite possibly, her deep love for Zeus that allows Hera to put up with all his mistresses - Zeus has gotten involved with numerous nymphs, sea maidens, human ladies, and even the random female farm animal. Although she begrudgingly tolerates his infidelities, Hera has been less then patient with the offspring of these mistresses. She is the one who drove Hercules -- the son of Zeus by Alcmene -- to madness, convincing him to murder his own wife and children in a fit of rage.

Hera's tolerance for Zeus' infidelities should not be interpreted as weakness. She was known to fly into jealous tirades, and wasn’t above using her husband's illegitimate offspring as weapons against their own mothers. Each of these children represented an insult to Hera, and she didn’t mind unleashing her wrath upon them. She also had no qualms about seeking vengeance upon other goddesses who felt themselves superior. At one point Antigone bragged that her hair was more fair than Hera. The queen of Olympus promptly turned Antigone's luscious locks into a nest of serpents.

Hera played a crucial role in the story of the Trojan War. At a banquet, a golden apple was presented by Eris, goddess of discord. It was decreed that whichever goddess -- Hera, Aphrodite, or Athena -- was the fairest should have the apple. Paris, a prince of Troy, was nominated to judge which goddess was most fair. Hera promised him power, Athena promised him wisdom, and Aphrodite offered him the most beautiful woman in the world. Paris chose Aphrodite as the fairest goddess, and she offered up the lovely Helen of Sparta, wife of King Menelaus. Hera was none too happy with the slight, so she decided that to pay Paris back, she would do everything in her power to see Troy destroyed in the war. She even drove her son Ares, god of war, off the battlefield when she saw he was fighting on behalf of the Trojan army.

Despite the fact that Zeus was always straying from the marriage bed, to Hera, the vows of her nuptials were sacred, and so she was never unfaithful to her husband. As such, she became known as a goddess of marriage and sovereignty. She was a protector of women, and is represented by such animals as the cow, the peacock and the lion. Hera is often portrayed holding a pomegranate, and wearing a crown. She is similar in aspect to the Roman Juno.

Gaia, the Embodiment of the Earth

In Greek mythology, Gaia personifies the earth. She was born of Chaos, and brought forth the sky, the mountains, the sea, and the god Uranus. After hooking up with Uranus, Gaia gave birth to the first races of Divine beings. The three Cyclopes were one-eyed giants named Bronte, Arges and Steropes. The three Hekatoncheires each had a hundred hands. Finally, the twelve Titans, led by Cronos, became the elder gods of Greek mythology.

Uranus wasn't thrilled about the offspring that he and Gaia had produced, so he forced them back inside her. As one might expect, she was less than pleased about this, so she persuaded Cronos to castrate his father. Later, she predicted that Cronos would be overthrown by one of his own children. As a precaution, Cronos devoured all of his own offspring, but his wife Rhea hid the infant Zeus from him. Later, Zeus dethroned his father and became the leader of the gods of Olympus.

Gaia herself caused life to spring forth from the earth, and is also the name given to the magical energy that makes certain locations sacred. The Oracle at Delphi was believed to be the most powerful prophetic site on earth, and was considered the center of the world, due to Gaia's energy.

The concept of an earth mother is not exclusive to Greek myth. In Roman legend, she is personified as Terra. The Sumerians honored Tiamet, and the Maori people honored Papatuanuku, the Sky Mother. Today, many Wiccans and NeoPagans honor Gaia as the earth, or as the archetypical embodiment of the Earth's power and energy.

Eros, Greek God of Passion and Lust

Often described as a son of Aphrodite by her lover Ares, the god of war, Eros was a Greek god of lust and primal sexual desire. In fact, the word erotic comes from his name. He is personified in all kinds of love and lust -- heterosexual and homosexual -- and was worshipped at the center of a fertility cult that honored both Eros and Aphrodite together.

There does seem to be some question about Eros' parentage. In later Greek myth he is indicated to be Aphrodite's son, but Hesiod portrays him as merely her servant or attendant. Some stories say Eros is the child of Iris and Zephyrus, and early sources, such as Aristophanes, say he is the offspring of Nix and Erebus, which would make him quite an old god indeed.

During the classical Roman period, Eros evolved into Cupid, and became portrayed as the chubby cherub that still remains as a popular image today. He is typically shown blindfolded -- because, after all, love is blind -- and carrying a bow, with which he shot arrows at his intended targets. As Cupid, he is often invoked as a god of pure love during Valentine's Day, but in his original form, Eros was mostly about lust and passion.

Demeter, Dark Mother of the Harvest

Perhaps the best known of all the harvest mythologies is the story of Demeter and Persephone. Demeter was a goddess of grain and of the harvest in ancient Greece. Her daughter, Persephone, caught the eye of Hades, god of the underworld. When Hades abducted Persephone and took her back to the underworld, Demeter's grief caused the crops on earth to die and go dormant. By the time she finally recovered her daughter, Persephone had eaten six pomegranate seeds, and so was doomed to spend six months of the year in the underworld. These six months are the time when the earth dies, beginning at the time of the autumn equinox. Each year, Demeter mourns the loss of her daughter for six months. At Ostara, the greening of the earth begins once more and life begins anew.

In some interpretations of the story, Persephone is not held in the underworld against her will. Instead, she chooses to stay there for six months each year so that she can bring a little bit of brightness and light to the souls doomed to spend eternity with Hades. 

A Healing Prayer

Irish Healing Waters

You will need the following items for this spell: 
Anointing oil

Take equal parts of lavender, violet, and rosemary. Empower them and then boil them in a pot with about a quart of water over medium heat. When the water is richly colored and the herbs are scenting your kitchen, drain the water off into a jar. A plain coffee filter works great for this. Place the jar in sunlight for an entire day to absorb the radiant energies of the sun. (You can do this on a Wednesday to add the healing powers of mercury to the spell) Occasionally look at the jar and add your own energies to it. Just before sundown fetch the jar and hold it firmly between your hands just below your naval. Feel your desire to be well filling the jar and with your minds eye see it glowing brightly as the sun. Chant these words until you have filled the jar with as much energy as it will hold.

By the herb and by the sun wellness and I are now as one strengthening energies now are merged. Baneful energies now be purged.

Anoint spots where illness lurks or on your belly if you are unsure where the source of discomfort lies. Or pour contents into bath water.

Prayer of the Native American

To the Native American belief, the Great Spirit was the creator, a supreme being, the all-encompassing mother. Among the Sioux tribe, the Great Spirit is often called the Wakan Tanka.

This prayer is said to ask for her blessing.

Chant the following:

''Oh Great Spirit, 
whose voice I hear in the winds, 
and whose breath gives life to all the world,
hear me! 

I come before you, one of your children,
I am small and weak. 
I seek your strength and wisdom. 
Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever 
behold the red and purple sunset. 

Make my hands respect the things you have made, 
my ears sharp to hear your voice. 
Make me wise, so that I may know the things 
you have taught my People, 
the lesson you have hidden in every leaf and rock. 

I seek strength not to be superior to my brothers, 
but to be able to fight my greatest enemy, myself. 
Make me ever ready to come to you, with clean hands and straight eyes, 
so when life fades as a fading sunset, 
my spirit may come to you without shame.

Channeling a Deity

You will need the following items for this spell:
Your Mind
A quiet place

First, start by clearing your mind. We want to make room for the deity. Second, call upon the deity of your choice. If you haven't already, it would be more beneficial to offer your deity something as an invitation or a token to them. It could be a food, a trinket, anything!

You must have confidence to succeed at channeling. Without confidence, you wont know if its the deity talking to you or your yourself talking to yourself.

Feel the deities energy descend upon you. Let yourself be wrapped up. Let the deity into your mind. Remember, keep a clear mind. You will know when the deity talks or does something.

Meditation Simplified

So here is a easy meditation technique........Meditation is one of the basic tenets, in order to be effective in magickal work, you will need to learn to enter a state of deep relaxation, a place of calm and balance to align yourself with the natural forces around you. As you learn to still your mind and enter this state of relaxation, you are learning to focus your mind, becoming centred, balanced and calm, you are learning mental discipline. It is here in your inner self that you will meet your Spirit self and your guide through your journey.
To reach a truly meditative state requires a lot of practice, and it is important to be patient and take your time. By using a meditation device repeatedly, such as incense, candles, chanting or drumming, you can condition your mind to enter a meditative state.
Basics - Meditation
Just some tips for those starting off...
1. Meditation should be carried out in a quiet room, preferably with some object for a focus point. Try using a pentagram for starters...being a Witch an all that!
2. Sit comfortably (you might be there for a while), in a chair or on the floor. The body should be completely relaxed with the head in a straight line with the spine.
3. Once you have achieved 1 & 2, and not before, the mind should be quietened and if possible stilled. An invocation to the elements should be performed before any meditation commences.
4. Breathing should be slowed down and lengthened, do not strain to keep to long or deep a breath. Slowly find a rhythm. Length and depth of breath will come with practice.
5. As the breath is taken, visualise an energy ( most visualise it as bright white light ) filling you, from the feet upward, as you exhale send it up through your head and then filling your magickal space ( most people create a dome above & around them with this energy).
6. Now look at the pentagram, relax, open your mind, see what comes into it, and think of the following things:
The uppermost point of the pentagram represents human awareness.
The lowermost points represent the four elements.
The continuous line is the energy of life itself unifying and connecting all things.
The pentagram symbolises our basic human instinct to be in harmony with the forces of nature.
Visualise yourself on the top point of the pentagram, connected to all the elements. Now spend a little time thinking about each element in turn.
As you continue to visualise yourself at the top of the pentagram, connected to the elements, notice that the real you, is greater than the sum of its parts...
You feel (Water)
You think (Air)
You respond, to the challenges of life (Fire)
You take responsibility, for yourself (Earth)
7. On starting of the visualisation there may be a feeling of descending or ascending. Just carry on.
8. On the termination of this feeling, you should have either some spiritual truth, if you have meditated without seed (the seed, being in this case the pentagram), or the answers to your questions of the seed (the pentagram).
9. This meditation may lead to astral projection and take you out of your body. If this should happen, try not to travel to far in these early stages.
10. Immediately the meditation becomes blank and its obvious there is no more information, it is time to return.
11. If astral traveling, immediately the vision becomes blurred, return to the body.
12. When returning, unless it is an emergency, return slowly. A quick return can harm.
13. Once safely back, take note of all you have seen, and conclude with thanks to the elements, each in turn.
Spiritual wisdom gained should be returned or used, for the benefit of humankind. This is my point of view anyway.
Remember those of you that are just starting, not to expect immediate results, practice practice practice

Scrying - Oracles of Divination

Scrying is a method of divination and takes on many forms. Information received varies with the type of scrying one is using to get answers. Information can be objective, message given that are independent of the scryer - or subjective, determined or influenced by the scryer. Scrying can also be viewed as a form of mediumship, messages allegedly coming from another realm. This all goes to the scrying tool used and the interpretation of thesymbol shown. A dream dictionary is often helpful.
As consciousness is evolving, so too are the meanings of the symbols.
Scrying comes from the Old English word descry meaning "to make out dimly" or "to reveal." Adding the prefix/suffix 'be' (often 'gye' in Germanic languages), gives us the modern word 'describe'.

Art of Scrying

Scrying can be an auto-deepening trance process that progresses in stages using tools such as a crystal ball, or other medium. Initially, the medium serves as a focus for the attention, removing unwanted thoughts from the mind in the same way as a mantra. Once this is achieved, the scryer begins a free association with the perceived images suggested, for instance in a crystal ball, by the tiny inclusions, web-like faults and/or the cloudy glow within the ball under low light (i.e. candlelight).
The technique of deliberately looking for and declaring these initial images aloud, however trivial or irrelevant they may seem to the conscious mind, is done with the intent of deepening the trance state, wherein the scryer hears their own disassociated voice affirming what is seen within the concentrated state in a kind of feedback loop. This process culminates in the achievement of a final and desired end stage in which visual images and dramatic stories seem to be projected within the mind's eye of the scryer, like an inner movie. This overall process reputedly allows the scryer to "see" relevant events or images within the chosen medium.
Scrying has been used for thousands of years by different cultures. Ancient Egypt used scrying in their Initiations. This included water scrying, dream scrying, oil scrying, and mirror scrying. One legend states that the goddess Hathor carried a shield that could reflect back all things in their true light. From this shield she allegedly fashioned the first magic mirror to "see."
Ancient Persia -- the Shahnama, a semi-historical epic work written in the late 10th century, gives a description of what was called the Cup of Jamshid, used in pre-Islamic Persia, which was used by wizards and practitioners of the esoteric sciences for observing all the seven layers of the universe.
Ancient Greeks and Celts practiced scrying using beryl, crystal, black glass, polished quartz, water, and other transparent or light catching bodies. Nostradamus is believed to have employed a small bowl of water as a scrying tool into which he gazed and received images of future events. Alchemists Edward Kelley and John Dee employed a form of scrying using a small crystal ball or shewstone - a piece of polished obsidion. The crystal ball and wax tablets used by Dee and Kelley are on display at the British Museum in London.
Scrying is the occult practice of using a medium, most commonly a reflective surface or translucent body, to aid perceived psychic abilities such as clairvoyance. The media often used to "see" are water, polished precious stones, crystal balls, or mirrors. Scrying, in this context, uses a "visual" process. There are some who believe the art of scrying is not limited to the use of "reflective" or "translucent" bodies only, but includes other media. Scrying has been used in many cultures as a means of seeing the past, present, or future; in this sense scrying constitutes a form of divination.

Deadly Curse

You will need the following items for this spell: 
  • light a black candle if you can 7 
  • focus

Sit for five minutes and focus on how much hate you feel for the target. Convert all your insecurities, all your pain from everything, all the hate you feel for others, your joy, your stress, convert it all to hate for that person.

'As Long As I Live'' Fear Spell'

You will need the following items for this spell: 
Strong will power
Not to be afraid to use black magic

This is a strong curse to be used on someone who has caused any kind of pain to you more than once and has rightfully earned your loathing. It makes them fear you for as long as you live, a fear so strong it can cause very extreme nightmares.

Fill the air around you with dark and/or chaos energy. Fill the air with you malice, hatred and anger. Get eye contact with them (it's OK if you blink) and send a duplicate amount of that energy around your target.
"Hatred and malice and anger I feel.
My insane side has been fueled by you
Vengeance is just
And you are worthy of my punishment
Feel the force of my lost pain
Feel the force of my lost anguish
Let terror haunt you
Strip all defenses from you
As long as there is darkness in my heart"
Say this three time, it's your choice how loudly but your voice must show your contempt. Send all the energy you put into the air towards them and form a prison with it around them, then sink it into their soul. When this is done walk away, the curse is set once you are out of their eye shot.

It doesn't unset the curse if they see you again after casting this.
If they have a shield up or try to block the spell, make it be consumed by the energy you put into the air.
I'm not sure if this curse can be sent back to you or not, be careful.
This spell is quite draining, make sure you have a lot of energy to use

'Black Curse Spell'

You will need the following items for this spell: 
Six unused black candles
Six nails
Six needles
Six pins / tacks
Two pieces of paper
Black pen / marker
Lighter / matches
Six black pouches

A spell to curse another.
Draw a six pointed star on one of the pieces of paper. It will turn out to look like David's star, but it's not.
Now take the candles and put one at each point of the star, and do the same with the nails, needles, and pins / tacks. Rip a small part of the second paper off and write the person's name you wish to curse on it. It's best if you have first, last, and (if they have one) their middle name written down, this way it will be more effective. 
Light the candles in a counterclockwise motion. Make sure you know which candle you lit first, you will need to know this for the rest of the spell. 
Take the paper with the person's name on it and burn a portion of it in the first candle you lit, then burn another portion in the second candle you lit, proceed to the third one you lit, and so on. While doing this, say the following aloud, picturing them in your mind.
"By Demons and Angels,
By Gods and Goddesses,
I curse ________,
As a punishment for all the hardships he / she has put me through.
This black curse,
This black power,
I curse thee."
Only say the above chant once, otherwise it wont work. 
By the time you get to the sixth and last candle, the whole paper should be burnt to ashes. 
Blow out the candles in the REVERSE order in which you lit them, saying, "So mote it be!" when the FIRST candle you lit has been blown out.
Divide up the ashes from the burnt paper into six different pouches, and put one of each item you used (except the candles) and put one of each into different pouches. When you have done this you should have six black pouches each containing ashes, one nail, one needle, and one pin / tack inside of it.
Now choose one pouch and bury it on your own property, and take another and bury it close or on the person's property that your trying to curse. You should now have four pouches left. Bury the remaining pouches in different locations around your community. This will complete the Black Curse.

Curse an enemy/person you hate

You will need the following items for this spell: 
black candle
full moon
night time
true hate for the person

This will put a curse on a person for as long as you want.
You must be angry for this to work.
First, go outside between 10:00 PM- 3:00 AM.
Light the black candle, and frown while meditating about the person and what shall happen to them (put your chin above the candle flame, but not too close!) Then chant the following with emphasis: "I call upon the gods and goddesses of night and darkness. From now to (date of curse to end) I shall curse ______. Begin the curse tonight, they will (insert what will happen). I call upon thee, begin the curse (chant this part 3 times)!"
Then when you feel a signal that says yes, snuff out the candles and thank the gods and goddesses.

Peace and Light

You will need the following items for this spell: 
  • Visualization

This spell can be used in times of stress and anxiety. Close your eyes and try to envision yourself surrounded by a white light. Say to yourself that this is a light of protection. Wrap your entire body in the white light. Outside the white light, add a golden light. This is the light of the Goddess, the one who moves mountains for us. Finally, envision a lavender light covering the rest. This is a light of comfort and peace. Repeat the following words as needed.

Light be bright within my soul
Emerge from night, safe and whole
Peace is mine at this time
Piercing dark, my light shall shine
For now, for more, and ever true
With light and love am I imbued

Forgiveness spell

You will need the following items for this spell: 
  • White candle 
  • Lavender incense

Light the candle 
Light the incense with the candle
Stay at the candle and say:
To err is human
To forgive is divine
Grant me forgiveness 
And peace and mind

House Blessing

You will need the following items for this spell: 
  • Grind the following together in a spice mill or using 
  • a mortar and pestle: 
  • 1/4 c sea salt 
  • 1/4 c lavender 
  • 1/4 c rosemary 
  • 2 Tablespoons peppermint 
  • 1 tsp angelica 
  • A small pinch of dragon's blood resin and/or sandalwood

Try to get as fine a powder as you can. Combine with 1 
cup baking soda in a jar and shake until thoroughly combined. 
Scatter over your carpets and allow to sit for several hours 
and absorb negative energy (as well as funky smells from
pets and what have you) before vacuuming up. On a wood 
or tile floor sweep the debris into a single bowl and then 
flush down running water if possible.

Sea salt, of course, gives its grounding energy to the mix,
and is a basic purifier as well as a consecrating agent. 
Lavender is known for its loving properties and healing
compounds, as well as its peaceful scent. Rosemary is 
much the same, but also has a strong protective component.
The peppermint further strengthens the mix; all three together
are antimicrobial and anti-critter but won't bother your 
companion animals. Neither will the angelica, which is
edible--but also a strong banisher of negative energy.
The dragon's blood resin or sandalwood pack a good 
hard energetic wallop; I call dragon's blood the Cosmic 
Can of Whoopass. A little goes a long way, and it can 
stain your carpets so go easy on it.
