Find out “What Witches Say When They Cast a Spell”

Updated on:


Written by: Tina Caro

When we cast spells we are so focused on every small gesture we do and we constantly ask ourselves, am I doing it right? Is this the right way to make the spell work and finally let things manifest? You know what?

Most of the time we do not fail in our execution of the spell, but in our wording of it. This article will give you all the advice you need to perfect your wording for spells and all other sorts of magic.


The words spoken when casting a spell vary among witches and depend on their tradition and intent.

Common elements include setting clear intentions, invoking deities or elements, using chants or incantations, visualizing the desired outcome, and acknowledging the elements.

Spellcasters may also include symbolic language or symbols specific to their purpose.

At the end, they typically seal the working, express gratitude, and release the energy to manifest the desired outcome.

Spellcasting is a highly personal practice, and the spoken words are a means to focus intent and energy.

Common witchcraft incantations

“As above, so below”Aligning the spiritual and physical realms for magical work.
“By the power of three”Amplifying the energy and intention of the spell.
So mote it be”Finalizing the spell and affirming its manifestation.
“Harm none, do as I will”Emphasizing the practitioner’s commitment to ethical magic.

The magic of spellwork

For years, spells have been worked out in magick. Each develops their own spells or studies and adapts those of others, as they have been handed down for centuries.

When a spell turns out to be valid there is no reason to modify it, but when the same spell needs to be modified according to a specific situation, its own variants are developed and the spell is loaded with all the power of which one is capable. Once the spell has been cast, it will be entrusted to the “rules of the Universe”, so that it is realized as desired.

It is absolutely counterproductive to continually think about the spell once it has been performed, since repetitive thought, which inevitably turns into negative, leads to the destruction of the spell itself. “Cast a spell and then forget about it”, as was said by the ancients.

The average time required for a spell to be cast is between 14 and 28 days, which is a complete lunar cycle. It is necessary that, after its “birth”, the spell matures, according to a complete cycle of death and rebirth.

The nature of spells

As a rule, spells are very simple and aimed, for example, at reconciling love, luck, and health. In a few succinct sentences, the request, invocation, or thanksgiving is included in the spell, reciting the verses at the most propitious hours and in the most suitable lunar period.

Some prefer to use rhyming words, as the continuous chanting rhythm helps to transform into a trance-like state of relaxation. All this is supported by the use of magical herbs, candles and incense.

What do witches say when they cast a spell?

Witches can say many different things when they cast a spell. They can even change things up here and there during the casting.

For example, they might use words to:

  • Cleanse the space and magical tools before the casting
  • Say a prayer to get ready to cast the spell
  • Meditate out loud to set an intention for their practice
  • Chant a magical formula to cast the spell
  • Invoke a god or a goddess
  • Chant some blessings to close the spell or the ritual

Elemental invocations

Earth“By the strength of the earth, I manifest my intentions.”
Air“With the breath of the winds, my desires take flight.”
Fire“By the flames of passion, I ignite my will.”
Water“In the depths of the waters, my emotions flow and transform.”

How to use your own words?

In rituals, words have an important function, their purpose is to increase the energy expressed by desire. Some actions increase the power of magic formulas, let’s see the most significant:

  • Repeat the words aloud
  • Use courteous words and avoid giving orders
  • Rhyming words are more powerful
  • Reciting the same word takes on a greater energy charge
  • The ancient words have more strength, the recitation of the Psalms is a testimony

In carrying out a ritual, you can use ready-made magic formulas or you can customize or invent them.

Some esoteric operators use the Latin and Hebrew languages, considering them to be more powerful. Regardless of the language used, the clarity with which the formula is expressed and the faith is important.

Using magic formulas is a practice that requires knowledge of esoteric rules and astrological influences.

Based on magical operations, the formulas can be directed towards:

  • The Divine Entities;
  • The Archangels and the Angels;
  • The Saints;
  • The Spirits of Light;
  • The four natural elements “fire, water, air, earth”;
  • The Planetary Forces “Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Saturn“; Sigils;
  • The Pentacles; The Charts of Sacred Geometry.

Normally a ritual is composed of an opening formula, an invocatory formula, and a closing formula, the magic formulas must be reported in the book of shadows and jealously guarded, one last consideration, any invocative ceremony requires the preparation of the magic circle, as an instrument of protection from evil spirits.


I don’t feel like creating my own spells. Is that okay?

Relying on what you can read in a book (or on a website, like this one) is normal at the beginning of your practice: we start from scratch and we have to learn everything and, sometimes, it seems impossible. It is long.

However, let us always remember that accepting the instructions of other practitioners means making their synthesis, a magical synthesis that certainly works for them but not necessarily for us.

Moreover, if we always and only rely on the work of others we will never really evolve in our practice and we will limit ourselves to reproducing gestures and words that have limited meaning for us.

That’s why I highly recommend for you to give your own personal touch to your magic, especially when it comes to sigil creation, prayers, and invocations. Be inspired by what you feel and would like to bring into your life so over time you will be ready to use your own words and do your magic!
