To Make Bad Luck Go Away


Square piece of paper at least 10 cm x 10 cm (3 x 3 inches)
A black marker or magical black ink and pen
Your cauldron or a fire- proof dish if using fire
Material to start your fire (such as pine chippings)


This spell can be adapted to use any of the Elements you choose to help the energy to work. Remember that Fire consumes, Air dissipates, Water washes away and Earth eliminates. You might do this spell at the New Moon to signify new beginnings or on a Saturday to change blockages into valuable experiences from which you can learn.

Spell Casting


  • At night time light a small fire in your cauldron or dish.
  •  If not using fire then decide where and how you wish to dispose of the paper.
  • Write on your paper the words: BAD LUCK
  • Think hard about when circumstances have not gone well for you and write them all down.
  • Draw a big X across the paper with the black marker.
  • Put the paper into the fire and say three times: Fire, fire brightly burning
Let me see my luck now turning
Change all that’s bad now into good
My life to be then all that it could.
Sit for a few minutes, concentrate on the bad luck being gone and the good luck coming your way.
Extinguish the fire and dispose of the ashes appropriately.
You can use any of the methods shown below to dispose of the ashes. Just substitute the ashes for the paper.
If you decide to use the Element of Earth then tear the paper into small pieces. knowing that the bad luck can no longer trouble you and make a similar incantation such as:
Earth dark, cool and strong
I ask you now to right this wrong
All bad luck eliminate
In joy let me participate.
  • Bury the paper, walk away and don’t look back.
  • If using the Element of Water, find a rushing stream or a source of fast flowing water - at a pinch a flushing toilet can be used.
  • Again tear the paper into small pieces.
  • As you dispose of the pieces say: Water, water, rushing pure
Take away bad luck for sure
Charge my senses as you flow
These negatives I will outgrow.
Take time to think about how full your life can be without the bad luck.
You no longer need to keep thinking ‘Poor me’.
If using the Element of Air, either get up to a place as high as you can - the top of a tall hill or building perhaps - or walk to a crossroads. At a pinch, a forked road will do.
Tear the paper up into pieces.
  • Throw or blow the pieces to the four winds.
  • Say:
Winds of change, set me free
Take bad luck away from me
Dispel its power within the air
I beg you now grant me my prayer.
  • Take a deep breath and this time as you breathe in be conscious of the fresh energy you are taking in. Any of the parts of this technique is enough to dispel the bad luck so a combination of them will be more than enough to change your life. You do however have a responsibility after this to understand yourself and how you draw negative influences towards you.
