All these spells deal with aspects of life. Specifically life in a family and a career sort of way.

Since these spells all deal with the fundamentals of a person's life these are all long term spells. This means you will not see results today or tomorrow, but they will come, if the spells are cast correctly.

These spells are very much like the Beauty Spells where you must cast only the spell which is right for you. Casting the wrong one may have undesired effects, and casting more then one may cancel some, but not all effects of the first spell. You must always be sure to undo spells properly instead of trying to cast a new spell to fix an old one.

#1 - Demeter's Blessing

    Demeter is the goddess of the forest, Earth and harvest, who presided over grains and the fertility of the earth in Greek mythology. Demeter was often called in prayer when a farmer or landowner wanted his land to be blessed, to ensure fertility and his plants/crops to thrive.

    In this spell, you can call upon her to bless your land, your garden, or even something as small as a potted plant. Any form of land or plant life that you wish to thrive.

    Firstly, light your green candle. Green is used to represent prosperity, wealth, nature and luck.

    The picture of the cornucopia can be printed off Google, or you can take a picture of a cornucopia you may have physically. If you like, you could even draw it if you have good artistic skills. The cornucopia is used as it is one of Demeter's symbols, as it represents abundance and nourishment.

    Place the picture of the cornucopia in front of the green candle. Once you have done so, grab your mini sheaf of wheat and place it on the *left* hand side of the paper- it must be on the left side. Then, gather your bunch of grapes, apple, orange and two plums and place them on the *right* side of the picture. After that, chant:

    ''Demeter, Demeter!
    Great goddess of the harvest, forests and Earth,
    I call you to kindly ask your blessing on ______. (the matter you want to be blessed).

    I possess the image of the cornucopia in your honor, to represent abundance.

    I possess a sheaf of wheat in your honor, to represent fertility.

    I possess a green candle in your honor, to represent prosperity, the Earth and luck.

    O' Demeter, I request of you to bless this sheaf of wheat, and when I scatter the ashes of it upon ______, may my _______ be blessed for abundance equally. With your blessing let my ______ thrive!
    In return, I offer you the fruit, and my eternal thanks.''

    Once you have finished the chant, place the sheaf of wheat in a bowl (you may cut it up to fit), and hold the candle over it. Let the wax of the candle drip on to the wheat for a few seconds.

    Next, set the wheat alight using the candle. Make sure all of the wheat has turned into ashes once the flame has burned out.

    After that, go outside (taking your bowl of wheat ashes, fruit to offer and spade with you). Using your spade, dig a small hole in the ground, and lower your fruit into the hole. Then, cover it up with the matter that you dug up. Say:

    ''Demeter, I offer this fruit to you in thanks for your blessing.''
    Once you feel you have been acknowledged (you may repeat the chant slowly until you feel you have been so), leave the area that you have just put the fruit in.

    Now, using your ashes of wheat, scatter the ashes on the plantlife of crops you want blessing. If it is a small, potted plant, scatter the ashes over the plant and into the pot. However, if this is a large area of land that all the ashes cannot cover, throw the ashes in the air around the area. Proclaim:

    ''Let the ashes that Demeter has kindly blessed ensure abundance, survival and that my ____ thrive. I thank Demeter, and she is in my favor eternally.''

    *_____ Represents the matter you wish to be blessed, insert the name of the matter in the place of where you see this.*

    #2 - Luck of the Runes

    This is a 'mojo bag' which uses the runes and several herbs in order to acquire luck in business ventures.
    You may need:

  • Pen
  • Paper
  • Violet
  • Allspice
  • Scissors
  • Red Clover
  • Orange Peel

  • Cinnamon Incense
  • The drawstring bag should be small, anything from 3-6 inches in size.

    This 'mojo bag' is used in order to acquire luck and success in business matters. It uses the powers of the runes and the herbs listed in order to gain said luck, success, prosperity, etc.

    Firstly, empty the herbs shown in the ingredients into the small drawstring bag. Once you have done so, grab your pen and write the following runes on the piece of paper in a medium sized print(you can Google them if you are unsure of what they look like):

    Fehu
    Dagaz
    Tiwaz

    Fehu, is used as it is said to represent the earning/winning of possessions, gain, wealth, abundance, luck, success and financial strength. It can also represent a sign of hope and plenty.

    Dagaz (meaning day, or dawn) symbolizes breakthrough, awareness. A time to plan or embark upon an enterprise. The power of change directed by your own will, transformation. Hope/happiness, the ideal. Security and certainty. Growth and release. Balance point, the place where opposites meet.

    Tiwaz, named after the Norse deity Tyr, can represent honor, justice, leadership and authority. Analysis, rationality. Knowing where one's true strengths lie. Willingness to self-sacrifice. Victory and success in any competition or in legal matters.

    Once you have wrote the runes on the paper, cut the paper so the runes are in individual sections, like a flashcard format. Once you have cut them in said format, empty the pieces of paper into the drawstring bag which contains the herbs (you can fold them if they do not fit).

    If you wish to do so, you may call upon a deity of wealth of abundance in order to politely request for their blessing. I reinforce that this is optional. Here's a few examples of wealth, abundance, luck or prosperity deities in some pantheons:

    Greek: Pluto
    Hindu: Lakshmi
    Roman: Abudantia
    Egyptian: Renenutet
    Norse: Freyja or Njoror
    Aztec: Tezcatlopoca or Chantico

    Of course, these do not cover all wealth deities and you may follow a different pantheon, in so you may use the appropriate deity of the pantheon you follow.
    Now, light the cinnamon incense, and once the smoke starts rising, pass the drawstring bag over the smoke in clockwise circles. You can stop doing this whenever you feel you should.
    After you have done so wear the bag on your person in order to attract such luck, success and abundance to your business and it's ventures.

    #3 - The Witch's Ladder

    A 'Witch's Ladder' is a multi-purpose tool in witchcraft. It can be used for wishing, money, healing, breaking bad habits, protection, and more.

  • Trinkets of your choice

    A 'witch's ladder' is a form of knot magic that originates from many years ago. The first known witch's ladder to record was found in an old house in Somerset, England, among six brooms. This was in the year 1878.

    The ladder is composed out of three pieces string, yarn, wool or rope, however when used in cursing especially, some like to weave hair into the ladder. Trinkets such as charms, feathers, beads, bones are braided into the ladder.

    Nowadays, the witch's ladder is primarily used for binding, healing, cursing, protection, wish spells and healing. It was believed that witches of old cast a death spell over a person by tying the knots and then hiding the cord, and the only way to undo the spell was to find the hidden cord and untie each knot.

    Of course, the witch's ladder is not limited to those uses. It is said variation in the colour of the string/yarn/etc used represents a different use for the ladder. Some common ones are:

    Green for money,
    Red for passion,
    White for creativity,
    Black to stop bad habits,
    Brown for balance,
    Yellow for happiness,
    Orange for health,
    Blue for peace,
    Purple for wisdom.

    Frequently when I am travelling, I carry my own ladder with me as they are said to encourage safe travel.

    Although ladders are often created for as part of a particular spell, in other cases, the knots or beads are used to attain track of repetition in a spell or incantation, somewhat alike to Rosary beads.

    Incantations are spoken during the creation process to empower the talisman to do its creator's bidding. According to an article, The Witches' Ladder, an example of a witch's ladder chant and knot placement is as follows:

    According to the article, ''At the tying of the last knot, all the energy is directed into the cord and its knots, with a final visualization of the object of the work. The power has been raised and is now 'stored' in these knots in the cord.''

    Often the number of knots represent a specific intent. For example, seven is said to represent safety and security. If one wanted to have a witch's ladder specifically for the intention of such, seven knots would be tied into the ladder.

    Here is an example of an incantation used when creating a typical 9 knot ladder:

    By knot of one, my spell has begun.
    By knot of two, it will come true.
    By knot of three, so mote it be.
    By knot of four, this power I store.
    By knot of five, my spell is alive.
    By knot of six, the spell I fix.
    By knot of seven, events I'll leaven.
    By knot of eight, it will be fate.
    By knot of nine, what is done is mine.

    The power has been raised and is now 'stored' in these knots, beads, feathers and in the cord.

    You can tie the ends of the ladder together and use it as a necklace for protection on your person or hang it somewhere close to where it is needed such as your bed head or chair.

    If you want to use it for healing you untie and release the items in the knots like this:

    You must release the knots one at a time, one a day, for nine consecutive days. Release them in the same order in which they were tied. As the knots are released the energy that was put into them releases and is used for the purpose that the ladder was made for. You can either bury the beads etc or keep them in a safe place.

    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.''

    #6 - Evocating Ma'at for Justice

    This is a simple spell to bring a person to justice; which calls upon the Egyptian deity of truth, balance, order, law, morality, and justice- Ma'at.
    You may need:

  • 1 Ostrich feather
  • 1 White paper
  • 1 Pot of ink
  • 1 White candle
  • If you cannot gain access to an ostrich feather, you may use the feather of a Blue Jay as a substitute.
  • Share

    Ma'at was the personification of truth, order, balance, law, morality, justice, stars and seasons. Ma'at was also said to regulate the actions of both the other deities and mortals, she set the order of the universe from chaos at the moment of creation.

    Place the paper on the surface you are using, and put the ink pot alongside it. Grab your ostrich or blue jay feather, and dip the sharp end it in the ink. Carefully write the name of the one to be brought to justice on the paper; you may have to dip the end in the ink several times again while doing so.

    After writing the name, patiently wait for the ink to dry. While doing so, light your white candle.

    Once the ink has dried, wipe the ink off the end of the feather, and proclaim:

    ''Ma'at, goddess and personification of justice and truth,
    I ask you kindly to bring justice on the person inscribed.
    I possess the symbol, your symbol, of truth- the ostrich/blue jay feather.
    I use this in your honor; and your aid is highly appreciated.''

    Once again, bring the paper with the name forth, grab the feather and dip it in the pot of ink. Underneath the name of the person to be justified, draw the hieroglyph for Ma'at. Ma'at can be written in many ways, but the simplest is the feather. However, this can cause confusion as the feather can also symbolize the air god, Shu.

    If you wish to be more specific, add the loaf symbol (a semicircle), and a simple picture of the goddess on a chair with a feather above her head. Google can provide you with pictures of these images.

    After that, chant once again:

    ''Ma'at, goddess and personification of justice and truth,
    I ask you kindly to bring justice on the person inscribed.
    I possess the symbol, your symbol, of truth- the ostrich/blue jay feather.
    I also have wrote your name in hieroglyphs out of respect; and to make my intent clear. I ask you to appreciate this.
    I use this in your honor; and your aid is highly appreciated.''

    Place the ostrich/blue jay feather on to the paper, and using the white candle, set the paper alight. Once the feather and paper has burnt, gather the ashes and scatter them outside by throwing them in the air, preferably on a windy day.

    It is done.
