This spell was submitted by a guest. It has been edited for clarity and additions have been made according to comments made by the author on the old server.

Spell Timing:

New moon or Waxing.

Suggested Tools:

  1. A small glass bowl, a little bigger than the size of one’s fist will do.
  2. Rose petals of any color. I recommend red or pink.
  3. Small white flowers, such as Queen Anne’s Lace.
  4. A small twig of rosemary, smaller than your pinky finger.
  5. Anything small that reminds you of the person. (I myself added flowers I collected on a walk with my person.)
  6. Water
  7. A windowsill

How to:

Perform all the following actions while holding the thought of your loved one in your mind. Think of happy times together, things you’ve done together, things they’ve said that made you smile, etc.

  1. Fill the glass bowl about 3/4 of the way with water.
  2. Float one rose petal on the water. Put the smaller white flowers around it. Put the twig of rosemary in the rose petal.
  3. Put the things that remind you of the person in the rose petal as well. This can be some sort of trinket, a sigil, etc. You can also sprinkle some red or pink glitter over the bowl for a more light-hearted love.
  4. Place on the windowsill at night and let it sit overnight. You can either keep the bowl near the window after that, or dump out the water and collect all the objects in a small cloth bag and keep that.

Additional Comments:

Tip: If this is a new love coming after an old one, rip up a couple of rose petals and sink them in the water before putting in the other items. This will help you move on from the past love and keep your head in the now.

    • I am not sure what you are asking here. There’s no reason it couldn’t be done for more than one person at a time.

      • They were asking if you can do the spell for two other people that you want to help bring them together. Like trying to get your parents to get back together

        • This spell will not help people get back together. The intention is clearly for the invigoration of an existing love. It will not rekindle or return a lost love. It is meant to be cast upon oneself, though it could certainly be adapted. It is also not inherently related to sex, but to the emotional bonding called love, so there’s no reason it could not apply toward friends and family members as well as sexual partners.

    • I suggest trying a candle spell, with 2 candles (their names engraved in both of them (1 candle per persons name)) then get some natural sting, and keep the intention of those two being happy together in your head, then tie the candles together (ensure that they’re lit once tied together)

      This just came from my BOS, I hope it helps! Blessed be! ^^

      p.s. I have never tried this myself, but many other people have, and I’ve heard great results

    • First a word of caution. It is never a good thing to try to force people who shouldn’t be together to stay in a relationship. That said, if the intention of staying together, working out problems, is already there, this spell can help. I wrote it for two friends who had been married very young who got divorced then met up again and decided to give it another go. They have been remarried eight years now, which is six years longer than their first marriage lasted. The best time is during the waxing moon. You need:
      1)white ribbon( I used silk because it is strong but any will do. White for pure intentions.
      2)a sprig of sweet basil and a spring of dill. Both are powerful in love spells. Dill represents protective joy bringing usually male energy while sweet basil a passionate and feminine energy.
      3)a little pomegranate juice in a silver thimble or ceramic bowl or red wine will work
      4)a white feather cut into a quill
      5)a lemon or orange
      6)an athame
      7)a white votive candle
      8)a plant pot half full of potting soil with more to go on top

      Peel a strip of lemon rind from around the middle of the lemon and anoint the candle before lighting it. Take the sprig of sweet basil, the spring of dill, and the strip of peel in one hand and the ribbon about seven inches from the end in the other. Leaving the long tail free, wind the ribbon seven times around the bouquet. Leave another seven inches and cut the ribbon off the roll with the athame. Tie into a bow around the bouquet leaving tails long enough to write on. Dip the quill into the pomegranate juice and write the names of the couple one on each of the tails the tails. Take the athame and slit the lemon from end to end about halfway through, so you have made a notch. Tuck the bouquet into the notch. Place the entire thing in the potting soil in your pot. Cover with soil and water. Put in a sunny spot and water every other day or so. As it grows so does the love between them.

  1. I know this probably isn’t the right place to ask this but are there any spells to help with social anxiety? I have a hard time talking to people so I was wondering if there was a spell to help that. I know that a spell isn’t going to fix anything like that, but I think it might at least make me feel better or help me become more confident.

    • There are spells for just about any and all purposes but none specific to social anxiety is posted on this site yet. Myself, I use lemon balm tea for social anxiety.

  2. For the water is there any type in particular that should be used? I really like working with sea water, could that work?
