Love Talisman Spell
Perform this every night for seven days.
The final night should be when the moon is full.
Make a pact not to say an unkind word
to each other for the seven days.
Set up an altar atop a dresser or night stand.
Place three candle holders on it.
Place a red candle in the center, unlit.
On the first night, take two white taper candles,
one for each of you.
Carve each of your names
and astrological sigils onto
and annoint your candles with lavender oil
while thinking about how much you care about the other
and how much you want a healthy, loving relationship with them.
Place the candles on the holders,
setting each on opposite sides of the altar.
Each of you lights your candle, chanting together,
"As I light this candle,
may it bring me closer to you,
so that love and romance will spark anew."
Sit before each other, take each other's hands, and meditate.
Envision the love in your heart for the other
as an energy that travels down your right arm
and into the other person's left arm.
Imagine the energy going to his heart
and mingling with his love for you,
down his right arm, into your left arm, back up to your heart.
Envision energy cycling through you both,
like a current, until the candles burn down an inch.
Snuff out the candles.
Repeat this for six more nights,
each night moving the two white candles
closer to the unlit red candle.
Take your white candles on the seventh night
and together light the center red candle with them.
Allow it to burn out on its own.
Snuff out the white candles and have a wonderful evening.
(*Alternately, I like to move all 3 candles together,
placed on top of a sheet of alluminum foil,
and let them burn down together;
either in a very close triangle,
or actually touching each other.
*THIS MUST BE WATCHED CAREFULLY-
DO NOT LEAVE THIS UNATTENDED
EVEN FOR A SHORT TIME!*)
When the candle(s) are finished burning,
look at the shapes made by the wax for divination;
and then bury all of the spell remenants.
