Magic Monday: New Year's Spells


With this brand new year comes a host of spells that you can perform to start the year off right.  These should be performed today (New Year's Eve), as you don't want to clean or throw out trash on New Year's Day. 


New Year Protection Spell



1. Clean your house thoroughly on New Year's Eve Day, removing every speck of dust. Sweep everything into a dustpan or container that you can carry.

2. Carry the sweepings to a crossroads and discard them before the stroke of midnight (aka the new year).

This renders the home immune  to bewitchment and malevolent magic during the year to come.




Welcome 2019 Spell



What you will need:
1 candle that speaks to new beginnings (white is always a good choice)
1 boline knife or any knife that you can use to carve into your candle
A few drops of patchouli or bergamot oil

Carve the Fehu rune into your candle. I highly recommend carving several of these all over it. Be sure you wipe it down to a smooth texture after carving.

Anoint the candle with oil by rubbing the oil over the entire outer surface.

At 12:01am on New Year's Day, light the candle and chant the following:


Candle, candle burning brightWelcoming the new year's lightProtection, peace, and joy divine,Luck, success, this year is mine!My desires come to me,As I will, so mote it be!


Now return your revelries, or whatever you have planned. You can allow the candle to burn continuously, or relight it every morning to reactivate the magic of your celebration. Whether the candle takes a few days or a few months to burn down, you can be satisfied that its flames will radiate your blessings to last the entire year. 




New Year's Eve Bath Spell


Gather herbs in a water-friendly satchel. These herbs should represent your intention for the new year. For example, if you want peace, throw in some lavender. If you want love, rose petals. If you want success, patchouli or bergamot. Herbal correspondences can be found here.

Draw a warm bath. You may want to add to the ambiance by lighting some candles and playing some music as well. 


Add a few drops of oil that represents your intention as well.


Soak in this bath and solidify your intentions for the new year.


Bury the used satchel in the ground or in the pot of your favorite plant to seal the deal.




New Year's Eve Bayberry Candle 


Real bayberry candles are rare and costly. It takes approximately 15 lbs of bayberries to create one pound of bayberry candle wax. And so, bayberry candles are often reserved for special occasions.

New Year's Eve is such an occasion! Light a bayberry candle on New Year's Eve to draw luck prosperity, and success in the coming year. 

*If you need to grab one in a hurry, you can find them at a Yankee Candle store, or your local Walgreen's store.




Seeds of Intention Spell


Sowing divination, a frequent practice among ancient European cunning folk, may be where this spell originates. Small onions were sown, asked to grow for, or “in name” of, people they had not seen, nor heard from, in awhile. Their germination, growth, and well being would be inspected, and interpreted, as both omens and answers.

You will need: 

  • Seeds
  • Soil
  • Pot


The key to this spell is to infuse your intentions with the seeds. You could create a chant to help focus your energy. Take the seeds, and before you plant them, chant something like:

These plants and my intentions are one; as they grow and greet the sun, may we prosper in harmony, by my will, so mote it be!

Be sure you take good care of the plants throughout the year.

Some ideas for seeds to use:

Anise: dreams, spiritual growth, removing obstacles
Basil: protection, success, money, and love
Sage: wisdom
Patchouli: protection, money, and love



Whatever you choose to do to celebrate 2019's arrival, I wish you the very best in the coming year!


Wildly,
Witch
