1.  To Bring Justice (coming soon!)


2. The Bag of Retribution

I make no bones about the fact that both light and shadow exists in magic, that the world is not divided into even and neatly ordered black and white regions, and that sometimes we will be required to step into a gray area. Whether for protection, retribution, or any number of very personal reasons, there may come a time when you will have to step into the shadows and grab its energy for your own use.
Don’t fear the shadows. Often we have a clearer view once we’ve stepped out of the blinding light.

This bag will dole out retribution against someone who is deliberately wreaking havoc in people’s lives; someone whose bad behavior, deviousness, abuse, and lack of conscience are putting innocent people at risk.

Correspondences:
Moon Phase: waxing to dark moon
Day: Saturday
Colors: black, dark gray, indigo
Herbs: black poppy seeds, black thorn, rue, willow, black pepper, cayenne pepper, *night shade (*poisonous)
Stones: black onyx
Tarot Card: The Tower

Fill this bag with the tarot card, the stone, and at least three of the herbs. To these ingredients you could add goofer dust, a small piece of paper on which you vent your feelings towards this person, and a photo or a name paper of the target. (A ‘name paper’ is simply a piece of paper upon which you’ve written the person’s name.)

To keep this person bound from harming anyone else, until retribution has been doled out or karma exacted, keep this bag—and keep it under very particular circumstances. Obtain a small hand mirror, large enough to lay the bag in the center and circle it with a line of salt and graveyard dirt. You are, in effect, trapping this person, keeping them under your control. Keep this spell in a *very* safe place, where the line of salt and graveyard dirt will not be disturbed or broken. I’ve done just such a spell, and I kept it hidden beneath my dresser with a silver bowl laid over the top so that my cats wouldn’t climb beneath the dresser and disturb it.

Every dark moon carefully bring this spell out, strengthen it with more salt or graveyard dirt if you see any weak spots in the circle; vent your feelings in no uncertain terms at this bag, and thus this person; spit upon it if you are so inclined. Then carefully return it to its secret place, until the next dark moon.

Steel yourself. This is a very potent spell and the retribution which the universe *will* dole out can be very startling and often disturbing.

When all is said and done, dispose of the articles of this spell quickly and very much *off* your property.

3.  For Safe Travel

You will find this mojo bag in my own vehicle, as well as in the vehicles of two of my children. This is the first thing I did when they very proudly purchased their first cars. I remember tucking it beneath the driver’s seat of my son’s van and was surprised to find it hanging boldly from his rear view mirror the next day. My daughter went through a baptism by fire when she experienced two accidents on a busy Omaha freeway, totaling both vehicles both times. She walked away from the incidents completely unscathed.

Correspondences:
Moon Phase: waxing to full moon, the full moon being most favorable
Day: Saturday
Planet: Saturn
Colors: black, dark gray, indigo
Herbs: plantain, calamus root
Stones: tiger eye
Tarot Card: The Chariot

Fill the bag with the tarot card, the stone, and *Both* herbs. This is very important. The combination of the plantain and the calamus root creates a very potent protective energy. I’m fortunate that plantain grows freely in my yard; I harvest and dry some every year for my own use.

To this bag you may also want to add a dash of sea salt and perhaps even some personal effects belonging to the person/people who will be traveling in this vehicle on a regular basis. Keep this bag in the vehicle at all times. Every few months I take my bag out, at the time of the full moon, and re-consecrate it with the four elements.

This is a very easy, very simple thing to do:

 1. Sprinkle the bag with salt, saying:

“I consecrate this bag with the power of Earth.”

2. Hold the bag in the smoke of lit incense, allowing the smoke to envelop the bag, saying:

“I consecrate this bag with the power of Air.”

3. Hold the bag in your left hand and a lit red candle in your right. Circle the bag clockwise with the candle, saying:

“I consecrate this bag with the power of Fire.”

4. Dip your fingers into a small bowl of water, and flick the drops upon the bag, saying:

“I consecrate this bag with the power of Water…

This bag is now consecrated and divine, bound to aid me in my magical endeavors.”

4.  To Increase Male Fertility

While many of us have started families and had children without giving it a second thought, there are countless couples out there devastated by the fact that they cannot conceive. Often issues involved with fertility may be found with the woman, but sometimes this isn’t so—sometimes it’s the man who has issues with physical infertility.  

This bag is for him.

Correspondences:
Moon Phase: waxing to full moon, the full moon being the most favorable
Day: Sunday
Planet: Sun
Colors: gold, orange, white, yellow
Herbs: frankincense, poppy seeds, rice, sunflower
Stones: hematite (associated with the root chakra)
Tarot Card: The Emperor

Fill the bag with the tarot card, at least three of the herbs listed; and I strongly recommend that rice be one of those included.  

The practice of magic can get pretty earthy. For anyone not up to my next suggestion, don’t worry about the potency of the magic created by your will and intent, the magic will still work even if you don’t want to add the following ingredient. However, for those of you who wish, to this bag add a small cloth with the man’s semen upon it.

Keep this bag in your bedroom, the nearer your bed the better—lying on the floor beneath it, tucked into a shelf on the headboard, or kept beneath your pillow. You get the idea.

5.  For Safe Childbirth

We’re very fortunate to live in a country that provides excellent medical care for women during pregnancy and the experience of childbirth.  However, once in a while the unexpected can happen, and when it does, it’s nice to feel the hand of Divinity close by—healing, protecting, and guiding.  This is especially desirable when the Divinity is feminine.

This bag is *Not* to be relied on in lieu of the good solid care of an obstetrician.  Instead, this bag is meant to be kept close to you through the wondrous nine month journey you are on.  And when the time comes, it’s meant to be tucked into your overnight bag and taken with you when you go to experience the grand adventure of childbirth.

Correspondences:
Moon Phase: waxing to full, the full moon being the most favorable
Day:  Monday
Planet:  the Moon (associated with the Mother Goddess)
Colors:  silver, white, gray, blue
Herbs:  moonwort, gardenia, jasmine, myrrh, lily
Stones:  moonstone, chalcedony, crystal quartz
Tarot Card: The Empress

Fill this bag with the tarot card, the stone you’ve chosen, and at least three of the herbs.
To this bag, you may also want to add some of the following items:  a lock of your hair, a photo of your own mother, perhaps an ultra-sound photo of the baby, a Virgin Mary medal, a Goddess pendent, a small statuette of the Goddess, the Virgin, etc.

6.  The Bag of Riches

This mojo bag deals with prosperity. This does not mean that you will become obscenely rich. It’s not about that; it never is. The Bag of Riches is a little magical insurance to make sure that your purse never runs dry, to see that you always have enough money to put food on the table, clothes on your back, and a roof over your head. This mojo bag can also be used when a specific amount of money is needed for a particular reason.

Correspondences:
Moon Phase: waxing to full moon, with the full moon being the most favorable
Day: Thursday
Planet:  Jupiter
Colors: green
Herbs: mint, basil, black poppy seeds, dill, marjoram, patchouli
Stones: aventurine
Tarot Card: nine of pentacles

To this bag you could also add a dollar bill with your wishes and intentions written upon it, especially if you need a certain amount of money for something in particular; a series of coins—a quarter, nickel, dime, and penny; a special coin, if you have one, such as a gold dollar, etc. It is particularly advantageous to carry this bag in your purse, or keep it near your wallet.

7.  The Lovers Bag

Are you drawn to a special person and need a little magical push so that this individual will become aware of you? There is always controversy over love spells that are aimed at a particular person. Some consider this type of magic a binding; others consider it unethical on many levels in general. But I feel we should always give love a chance.
If you’re meant to be together, the universe will shine upon you, and it will be so. If it’s not meant to be a lasting relationship, perhaps there’s a life lesson you will learn from this individual, and maybe that’s why you were drawn to them in the first place.  

If love is calling and your heart fluttering at the sight of someone special, but they don’t seem to know that you exist, this is the mojo bag for you.

Correspondences:
Moon Phase: waxing to full moon
Day: Friday
Planet: Venus
Colors: red
Herbs: rose petals, cardamom, ginger, coriander, hibiscus, red geranium
Stone: rose quartz
Tarot Card: The Lovers

To this bag, you will definitely want to add some personal effects. Your own items could include a lock of your hair; fingernail clippings; a Kleenex that you’ve blotted lipstick on, leaving an imprint of your lips; a photo; your signature; etc.

If it’s at all possible, add similar personal effects belonging to the target. If you’re not able to obtain any items of this nature, at least include a name paper. A love note, or love letter, written by you to the target, telling him/her all those things you’d like to say to them would be an excellent item to add to this bag. Be sure to add at least three of the herbs listed, and I strongly suggest that rose petals be one of them.

8.  To Uncover the Truth

If you’re involved in a situation and you suspect there is deception, it’s time to discover the truth of the matter. This mojo bag will do just that, but don’t expect grand Hollywood type special effects. Real magic is so much more subtle; it does not break the laws of physics—usually; and sometimes the results will be completely unexpected and out of the blue—from a source you never would have guessed, at the time you least expect it, and with a revelation that will either cast a blazing light on the truth or quietly reveal imperative information.

That’s the way this mojo bag will work.

Correspondences:
Moon Phase: waxing to full moon, with the full moon being most favorable
Day: Wednesday
Planet: Mercury
Colors: yellow
Herbs: slippery elm, adder’s tongue, cloves, drawing powder
Stones: agate
Tarot Card: The Moon

To this bag add at least two of the herbs listed, and it would bode you well to add a paper to this bag upon which you explain the situation and your desire to know the truth.

9.  Personal Power Mojo Bag

Personal Power Bag for Women:

For this mojo bag we’re going to draw on the energy of the High Priestess. Within her lays the power of the Feminine Divine. She will represent the inner core of all women, where magic resides, where the witch exists—“There’s a little witch in every woman.”, so goes the saying. All of these archetypes—the priestess, the goddess, the witch—represents and emphasizes personal power.

Correspondences:
Moon Phase: full moon
Day: Monday
Planet: Moon
Colors: blue, silver, white
Herbs:  moonwort, lotus, myrrh, gardenia, cardamom, belladonna, thyme, lilac, apple blossoms, violet, wormwood
Stones: moonstone, blue lace agate, clear quartz crystal
Tarot Card: The High Priestess

Personal Power Bag for Men:

For the man we’re going to draw on the energy of The Magician. Within him lays the power of the masculine, the Priest—the Elder, the Shaman, the Sorcerer, the Wizard. The Magician holds the mysticism of the four elements within his hands and the will needed to create magic. These archetypes represent personal power.

Correspondences:
Moon Phase: full moon
Day: Sunday
Planet: Sun
Colors: yellow, orange, white
Herbs: carnation, juniper, rowan, sunflower, St. John’s Wort, mistletoe
Stones: amber, carnelian, tiger’s eye
Tarot Card: The Magician

To this bag, add at least three of the herbs and one of the stones listed. You could also add an image of the God/Goddess, such as a pendent or small statuary. I’ve seen some very tiny and beautiful ones in new-age shops. If you have a patron god/goddess, you could also add images, herbs, stones, objects, etc., that are special and unique to His/Her energy.  

Add to this bag images or objects that represent power to you—an object from your work place, if you feel this is where your power lays; a photo of your children; tokens of past success; slips of paper filled with personal affirmations; images of men or women who represent success and power to you, such as your mother/father, grandmother/grandfather, or a public figure.  

10.  For Protection

The nine of wands is a card which represents ‘The Warrior’, and it’s the energy of this card we’re going to call upon for this mojo bag. I have to say, along with this magic, you have to reclaim your personal power and find belief in yourself in order to conquer those people who might wish bad things upon you—either sub-consciously through envy, jealousy, spite; or deliberately through the magic of hexes and curses; or through other mundane actions such as sabotage, gossip, deceit, etc.
The contents of this bag will shield you from the onslaught of negativity mentioned above. It will also throw back upon your adversaries the very negativity they aim at you, and it will seal it there, where it belongs.

Correspondences:
Moon Phase: waning to dark moon, with the dark moon being most favorable
Day: Saturday
Planet: Saturn
Colors: black
Herbs: anise, calamus, fennel, frankincense, blackthorn, elder, rue
Stones: black onyx, garnet, obsidian.
Tarot Card: nine of wands

To this bag add at least three of the herbs and one of the stones listed. I would also advise you to add a pinch each of the following ingredients: goofer dust, graveyard dirt, banishing powder, and salt. If you are aware of particular people who are giving you grief, you could add a name paper for each person. But I warn you, be very cautious about singling out individuals; you must be one hundred percent sure that this action is warranted. It is sometimes best to let the universe dole out retribution and punishment. Karma does indeed have a way of coming back to mete out justice.

1.  To Promote Fidelity
 
Monogamy is a highly regarded practice in our culture. Society, under the strong influence of Christianity, favors a single monogamous relationship between one woman and one man for their lifetime.

Now let’s take a look at reality.

The majority of human beings are not naturally monogamous. They will have several sexual encounters and partners in a long life. There are people who will favor sexual partners of the same sex, people who favor sexual partners of the opposite sex, or even people who will seek both types of contact.   

Some may live a polyamorous lifestyle openly and with the blessing and even participation of their partners; while others may try in vain to live up to the strict moral codes of a particular religion or society by adhering to a monogamous lifestyle. More often than not, these people will wind up having secret affairs, lying to their partners, and concealing their activity. It’s this type of situation and these people to whom this spell is aimed.

For this particular spell we need the energy of the two of cups—the couples card; which emphasizes partners, pairs, and doubles.

Correspondences:
Moon Phase: waxing to full moon
Day: Friday
Planet: Venus
Colors: two red figure candles of the appropriate sex for your situation and one black votive candle
Herbs: nutmeg, cumin, rhubarb, skullcap, licorice—the root, not the candy, clover, chickweed
Stones: selenite
Oil: sex oil
Incense: rose
Tarot Card: two of cups

Just a note before we begin:

Of all the herbs listed above, the one herb that must be added to this spell is nutmeg. I’ve found nutmeg to be the strongest of all the herbs for promoting fidelity. As to the stones listed for candle spells, place them upon your altar to lend their energy to your spell crafting.

What to do:
1. Cast a circle.
2. Light your incense.
3. Anoint the black votive candle with sex oil and roll it in a mixture of the herbs. But don’t light it yet.
4. Carve your name on one of the red figure candles and your partner’s name on the other candle.
5. Anoint both red figure candles with the sex oil—slowly, languidly, with intention, emotion, and passion. Take as long as you need at this task in order to raise emotion and energy for the spell.
6. Line the candles up on you altar, with the small black votive candle between the two figure candles.
7. Write the following spell on the two of cups tarot card, and recite it aloud three times:

“As these candles burn  
In flames of three,
 My partner shall be faithful,
 Only unto me.”

8. Burn the tarot card, using the flame of the black candle to ignite it. Be sure to have a fireproof receptacle close by to drop it in.
9. Allow the candles to burn themselves out.
10. Gather the ashes of the tarot card, the remnants of the spell candles, and the stones. To these items add personal effects belonging to you and your target. Personal effects include such things as locks of hair, fingernail clippings, a piece of cloth with body secretions upon it, a signature, photo, etc. Place all of these things together in a red bag and keep it in a secret place where it will not be discovered.
 
2.  To Catch a Thief
 
How frustrating to be the victim of theft. We’re going to call upon the energy of the seven of swords for this spell, a card that has often revealed the presence of a thief.

Using the magic of this spell, we will bring the culprit to justice one way or another. The results may be loud and obvious, with bells ringing; or the results may be more subtle. Perhaps someone in your community will be apprehended for theft, though there will be no evidence to directly link them to your personal experience. Karma has ways of exacting justice.

Correspondences
Moon Phase:  waxing moon
Day:  Tuesday
Planet:  Mars
Colors:  an orange or white pillar candle
Herbs:  dragon’s blood, wormwood, nettles, cayenne pepper, *nightshade (poisonous!)
Stones: black onyx
Oil: mars astrological oil
Incense: dragon’s blood or patchouli
Tarot Card: seven of swords

Just a note before we begin:

This pillar candle is going to be rolled in a mixture of the herbs you choose to use, and it shall be burned a few hours every evening until it has burned itself down. This may take several days.  

Also, be aware that the herbs on these spell candles will eventually ignite, and when they do, these candles can burn up very quickly in an impressive ball of flame. Never leave them unattended. Make sure there are no flammable materials close to them. It’s also a good idea to sit them in a fireproof container. Personally, I use my cast iron cauldron.

What to do:
1. Cast a circle.
2. Light the incense.
3. Sit within the center of your circle and ground yourself, finding that quiet still place inside of you.
4. You might set upon your altar, not only the stone, but also a picture of the item/s that have been stolen, or a written list.
5. Roll the pillar candle in a mixture of the herbs. Set it in the center of your altar and light it.

6. Write the following spell on the seven of swords tarot card:

“As this candle burns outside of time,
 It exposes the one who committed the crime.
 As this flame grows ever bright,
 The guilty one steps into the light.”

7. Burn the tarot card, using the flame of the spell candle to ignite it. Save the ashes.

8. Burn this candle every evening until it has burned itself out.

9. Gather the remnants of the candle, the ashes of the tarot card, and the stone, as well as a photo of the stolen item/s or a written list. Place these things in a black bag, or wrap them up in a black cloth. Keep them in a secret place to keep the energy of this spell working. Wherever the thief may be, he will feel the affects of this spell.
 
3.  To Gain Employment
 
This spell is beneficial when you are actively seeking a job. We’re going to use the energy of the eight of pentacles—the apprentice, the employee, deep in concentration, intent on completing the tasks before him. Remember that spells such as this are more often successful when you combine both magic and mundane actions to achieve the desired outcome.
 
Carefully casting a spell for employment and then sitting back and doing nothing is counter-productive. It tends to magnify negative energy and defeat the purpose of the spell. So cast this spell and then continue filling out job applications and going for interviews.  

The magic will be with you, you’ll stand out.

Correspondences:
Moon Phase:  waxing to full
Day:  Sunday
Planet:  Sun
Colors:  orange, white, or yellow
Herbs:  frankincense, St. John’s Wort, mint
Stones:  malachite
Oil:  prosperity oil
Incense:  patchouli

What to do:
1. Cast a circle.
2. Light your incense.
3. With a pen and paper, spend some time writing down your hopes, dreams, goals, and aspirations, as far as new employment is concerned. Be detailed and don’t be afraid to reach high—the skies the limit.
4. Place your letter on the altar, sitting the malachite stone on top if it.
5. Anoint the candle with the oil and roll it in the herbs. Light it.
6. Upon the eight of pentacles tarot card, write the following spell:
 
“Work and wages lay before me.
Honest labor is my destiny.
By the awful awesome
Power of three times three
So mote it be.”

7. Burn the tarot card in the flames of your spell candle, and allow the candle to burn itself out.

8. Gather the ashes of the card and the remnants of your candle, along with your written letter and the stone, and place them in a green or gold bag. Keep this bag in a safe and secret
 
4.  The Wish Spell
 
To this spell we’re going to add the energy of the nine of cups, often referred to as ‘the wish card’. We all harbor secret wishes and desires. With the help of this spell and this tarot card, we will work at manifesting these wishes into the real world of taste and touch, sight and smell, and sound.

It must be said here that this spell is aimed at wishes of a positive nature, wishes that will cause harm to no one but will bring numerous benefits, joy, and expansion. Wishes birthed in negativity, hatred, ill-will, envy, jealousy, etc., may very well manifest, but with unpredictable, scattered, and often dangerous results. I would not advise anyone to tread here.

Correspondences:
Moon Phase: waxing to full moon
Day: Monday/psychism, intuition, dreams; Wednesday/communication and intellectual pursuits; Thursday/wealth and material possessions; Friday/love and passion
Planet: Moon/psychism, dreams, intuition; Mercury/communication and intellectual pursuits; Jupiter/wealth and material possessions; Venus/love and passion
Colors: blue/psychism, dreams, intuition; yellow/communication and intellectual pursuits; green/wealth and material possessions; red/love and passion
Herbs: marigolds or anise/psychism, dreams, intuition; rosemary or eyebright/communication and intellectual pursuits; patchouli/wealth and material possessions; rose petals/love and passion
Stones: moonstone/psychism, dreams, intuition; agate or mottled jasper/communication, intellectual pursuits; adventurine/wealth and material possessions; rose quartz/love and passion
Oil: witches’ oil
Incense:  Choose a scent that you favor, personally my favorite is Nag Champa.
Tarot Card: nine of cups

What to do:
1. Cast a circle.
2. Light your incense.
3. Take some time to ground yourself, still your inner voice, and then think about what you’re wishing for. How will it change your life? What effects will it have on the people around you? Don’t be afraid to look deep within and ask yourself “Where is this wish coming from?”
4. When it becomes clear to you, write your wish on the nine of cups tarot card. Lay it upon your altar, placing the stone on top of it.
5. Anoint your candle with witches’ oil and roll it in the herbs. Light it.
6. Burn the nine of cups tarot card, igniting it with the candle’s flame, and allow the candle to burn itself out.
7. The remnants from this spell will, of course, be kept safely tucked in a small bag until your wish has manifested, at which time, you will take the contents of the bag and scatter it to the wind, preferably at a crossroads.

Leave a silver coin at this site, as an offering to the spirits of the crossroads for their generosity
 
5.  To Regain Balance in Your Life
 
For this spell we’re going to use the energy of the two of pentacles. This card has often showed up in readings when my querent was not well grounded, when aspects of his/her life were unstable, when a renewed sense of equilibrium was needed.
 
The pentacles of the tarot are tied to the element of Earth, and with the energy of Earth we will rediscover how to ground ourselves. By doing so, we will bring back to our lives solidity and stability on all levels, often in surprising and unexpected ways.
 
Correspondences:
Moon Phase: waxing to full moon
 Day: Choose a day desirable for you, when you will be uninterrupted and able to spend some quiet time alone.
 Planet: Earth
 Colors: green or brown
 Herbs: sage
 Stones: mossy agate
 Oils: uncrossing oil
 Incense: patchouli
 Tarot Card: two of pentacles
 
What to do:
1. Cast a circle.
2. Light the incense.
3. Have assembled on your altar all the items you will need—your candle, herbs, oil, etc., and with this include two sheets of paper and a pen, as well as the two of pentacles tarot card.
4. Seat yourself in the center of the circle and get comfortable. You’ll be here for a while. Perhaps bring a soft cushion or two with you.
5. As you sit within your circle, light your spell candle. Take three cleansing breaths, clear your mind and center yourself. After a few minutes of quiet time, take both sheets of paper and write upon one of them those thing in your life that feel balanced and ‘right’. On the second sheet of paper, list those things in your life that feel unbalanced or ‘wrong’ in some way, where the energy is ‘off’, but maybe you can’t quite put your finger on why. List even those small things you may not think are important. Take both sheets of paper and burn them in the spell candle.
6. Now we’re going to begin grounding ourselves by deliberately relaxing each part of our body. Before we begin, get comfortable with your cushions…
 
Start with your toes, your feet, your ankles, concentrate and consciously relax the muscles in each area. Next, move up to your calves, your knees, and then your thighs. As you do, feel the sense of relief and release as the muscles loose their tension. Notice the pleasant sensation that envelops your body as you climb higher.
 
Next, relax your pelvis, release the tension, loosen your grip, feel the muscles relax and the pleasant spreading sensations this brings. Keep climbing…your tummy, your solar plexus region, your back—your spine. Allow these muscles to go limp, to sigh with relief, to relax.
 
We are to your shoulders now, your neck—concentrate here, deliberately loosen the tensed muscles, feel the wave of relaxation enter this area of your body.
 
Go back to your shoulders, let that tightness go, release it, allow the warmth and the pleasant sensation of relaxation to slowly spread down your arms to your elbows, to your forearms, to your wrists, and finally, feel it flow down to the ends of your fingertips.
 
Come back to your head now. Relax your brow. Feel the sensation of relaxation in your neck spread up to your jaws, your mouth, your eyes—up to your brow, until you feel it flow up to your scalp through your hair, and puddle out around your crown chakra.
 
7. When you have rested as long as you feel comfortable doing so, slowly sit up. You might feel a bit light-headed, or even physically light and ‘floaty’. Take some time to adjust.
 
Then…
 
8. Open the circle and eat something.
9. Later, gather together the remnants of the spell, especially the ashes from those sheets of paper. Take these items to a favorite outdoor spot and scatter them to the wind.
 
6.  To Summon Someone from Your Past
 
We’re going to use the six of cups tarot card for this spell. This is the card that brings to the forefront people, places, and memories from our past.
 
As you prepare to cast this spell, concentrate on the identity of the person you wish to summon. Allow memories to roll through your mind. Visualize their face, up-close and personal; hear their voice in your head, and their laugh.

Once you have opened yourself fully to the memories of this person, it’s time to summon them.

Correspondences:
Moon Phase: waxing to full moon
Day: Friday
Planet: Venus
Colors: red (romantic love), pink (friendship, platonic love)
Herbs: hibiscus, lilac, cardamom, catnip, aster, geranium
Stones: rose quartz
Oil: command & compel oil
Incense: rose
Tarot Card: six of cups

What to do:
1. Cast a circle
2. Light the incense.
3. Upon your altar, if you have access to these items, place a photo of the person you’re summoning, as well as personal effects, such as a lock of their hair, a piece of their clothing, a letter written by them, an object that belonged to them, etc. Also, have a name paper prepared—this is just a slip of paper with their name written across it.

10.  Banishing Nightmares
 
There are many of us who find our peaceful night’s sleep punctuated by nightmares. These may be brought on by the stress of our day, by sub-consciously suppressed memories/events/emotions from our past, and even occasionally by mischievous or harmful spirits.
 
This ‘spell’ is going to use the energy of the nine of swords tarot card to ‘dispel’ your nightmares.
 
Correspondences:
Moon Phase: waning moon to the dark moon
 Day: Monday
 Planet: Moon
 Colors: blue, silver, white
 Herbs: cloves, frankincense, garlic, sage, rosemary, sandalwood
 Stones: moonstone or clear quartz crystal
 Oil: banishing oil
 Incense: sandalwood
 Tarot Card: nine of swords
 
What to do:
1. First, prepare yourself a hot cup of tea containing chamomile and valerian. You can usually find this type of tea ready-made in the grocery store, often advertised as ‘calming tea’, ‘sleepy-time tea’, ‘bed-time tea’, etc. If you’re not successful locating it at your local store, add a pinch of the herbs chamomile and valerian to a decaffeinated tea…make sure the valerian is a small pinch! You don’t want to add too much of this herb.
2. Cast your circle.
3. Light the incense.
4. Anoint your candle with the oil, roll it in a combination of two or three of the herbs listed, and light it.
5. On the nine of swords tarot card, write the following spell:
 
“As this card burns
 Within this fire,
 All my nightmares shall retire,
 Leaving me with pleasant dreams and restful sleep,
 Unending nights of peace to keep.”
 
6. Burn the tarot card in the flames of your spell candle. Take some time then to sit and sip your tea, relaxing as you watch the flame of your spell candle, allowing your mind to wander where it will for a while.
 
Take the remnants of this spell and place them in a small black bag. The next day go for a drive and find a spot to dispose of the bag; perhaps a dumpster at the park, or an isolated grove of trees. You might want to dismantle the bag at this time and sprinkle the contents upon the spot you’ve chosen.
