This is a lunar spell which calls on the power of the Moon and the waves. It is also representational because the shell is a long accepted symbol for the Goddess and signifies her ability to take all things to her and effect changes. In this example, we use an Ogham Stave to represent healing, though the spell can be used for other purposes as well. It is performed at the seaside.

You will need the following items for this spell:

To perform this spell, you must find a suitable shell in shallow water. Take the shell and dry it thoroughly. Draw your chosen symbol upon the surface of the shell. For healing, we suggest the Edhadh Ogham Stave:

Place the shell upon the shore so that the tide will bring the waves across the shell. When the shell is in place, draw a triangle in the sand, enclosing the shell completely. The symbol upon the shell must be facing upwards (towards the Moon).

Meaningful words, or phrases, may be placed upon the shell also, or simply written in the sand (inside the triangle). Finally, face the Moon and say the following words of enchantment:

"Goddess of Moon, Earth and Sea,
Each wish in thy name must come to be.
Powers and forces which tides do make,
Now summon thy waves, my spell to take".

Leave the area now and the spell is set. Once the waves come, then your wish will be taken out to the spirits of the sea. It will usually take about seven days for a -lunar spell to begin to manifest, but it can take as long as 28 days.

This type of magic is what we called little works and belongs to the folk-magic level of spell making.Take care to note the phase of the Moon (waxing forthe gain of something, waning for the dissolving of-something). You are using natural objects which to- the uninitiated mean nothing.
