Spells & The Moon – When Is Best To Cast A Spell

Spells work best in tandem with nature’s mysterious, magical and powerful objects. Of these, the moon is number one on the list for spell-givers.

The following are some refresher notes on spells and the phases of the moon.

New Moon / Dark Moon

Just like the full moon, the new moon (or dark moon) is the most opportune time to remove things from our lives. It is usually the time when you are most powerful in spell-giving.

This is a good time to reverse spells others have cast, ideal for banishing spells and focusing on the replacement of any negative effects all around.

However, keep in mind that when asking for something to be removed, there is a void left open. Ask for something positive and fill up that space.

To prevent a waxing influence on your spellwork, the banishing spells and rituals must be done before the beginning of the new moon. The most powerful time for spells is three days after the appearance of the new moon.

Black Moon

When two new moons appear during a single month, the second new moon is regarded as the stronger of the two. This is the best time to cast spells that deal on addiction.

Waxing Moon

The time of the waxing moon to full moon is the best time to cast spells on situations and events that concerns us. The waxing moon is perfect for spellwork regarding success, protection, abundance, friendships, luck, new beginnings, and love.

The waxing moon is wonderful for good, constructive magic.

First Quarter

This is the mid-point between the new moon and the full moon. This is the time most ideal in focusing and meditating on attracting new positive things toward you. These things will grow as the moon waxes.

Waxing gibbous

This is the perfect time to focus on fruition and completion of your spellwork, and the time to focus and meditate on all the spellwork you did during the waxing phase.

This is also good to do any magical work on prophecy, protection or divination.

Full Moon

This is the time to meditate on the divine power of the universe and pray that it shall also strengthen and empower us. The full moon imparts the strongest power for all invocations and spells.

This is the time to cast your most powerful magic spells. To avoid a waning influence, cast your spells and do your rituals before the exact time of a full moon.

Blue Moon

When a month has two full moons, the 2nd full moon is deemed the stronger and more powerful. For your spells and rituals that need an extra kick, this is the time to do them.

This is also the time to meditate on your life’s goals and to assess your successes and failures.

Waning Gibbous

This is the best time to banish the things we don’t want anymore in our lives. Plus, it is time to meditate on cleansing and removing all negativity around us.

Last Quarter

This is the time for ending things, much like the moon going to the end of its cycle. Focus and meditate on balancing your body’s energies, replacing negatives with positives.

Waning Moon

The time of the waning to the new moon is also the best time to remove unwanted circumstances in our lives. Cast banishing spells against enemies, addictions, sickness, negativity, and evil. Cleanse yourself of the things you no longer need.

How To Release Spells Or Curses

In our world, we interact with all kinds of people, good and bad, kind or hurtful, plainly evil or lovingly benevolent. One time or the other, through our interaction with people, we would meet those who sometimes can be cross and releases a curse on us.

A curse or a black spell will stay with a person’s subconscious as well as in that person’s etheric and cellular self. As always, the curse has a symbol associated with it – often dark, sometimes like a cross, a circle, or a simple X.

If someone is a victim of such a spell or curse, that individual’s Higher Self will know. You simply ask the Higher Self for the shape or symbol used to create and cast the spell or curse.

The following script from Heart & Soul Healing can help in removing the curse. (One important instruction is to ask the questions and receive answers quickly. This is to avoid engaging or having the conscious mind of the person take over.)

Questions and things to do

Say to the person under a spell: I AM ASKING (person’s name) HIGHER SELF… WHAT IS THE SYMBOL USED TO PLACE THIS CURSE? (It will simply appear in your mind.)
WHAT IS THE SYMBOL YOU SEE? (Make a note of the symbol.)


HOW DOES THE SYMBOL FEEL? (Note the feeling.)

(Typical answers are, “You will never be powerful. You will always be poor. You will never find love. You will always be sick. You will always have bad luck. You will never have children. You will never be popular. You will do as I wish…)

(Usually, the answer will be “Yes”)


If the symbol is a black triangle, for example, say: I WANT YOU TO PICTURE THIS BLACK TRIANGLE (or other symbol given before) IN YOUR MIND’S EYE.




Use the palm of your pulling hand (left hand for women, right hand for men) to twist clockwise five to six times on the client’s 3rd eye in the forehead area. Use your fingers to wipe the area once or twice and say: THE SPELL OR CURSE IS BROKEN. Then, rinse your hands.

The spell is now broken.

Introduction To Wicca Spells

Magic spells have been a long human interest. People are fascinated on how spells could work for and against a person’s interest. However, there are magick spells which are not only performed to achieve personal gain. There are those which are practiced as part of their religious beliefs, like Wicca spells.

Wicca is deeply rooted to ancient pagan beliefs which emerged during 1940s and 1950s. Gerald Gardner first wrote wicca or wica in his publications during the ‘50s. He claimed that these practices and beliefs were based from a group that has initiated him. As reflection of their religious belief, the spells are often referred to as “magick,” spells unlike the common “magic.” This differentiates their religious belief from the common illusion tricks performed by magicians in shows.

The word Wicca seems to be based on the Old English word wicca and wice which can be the forerunner of the word witch. Wicce or wice means to have wisdom and bend or shape like bending a wicker to make a basket. Later on, the word wiccan was used to refer to practices associated with this belief system.

Pitting Wiccan beliefs against Christian beliefs is common which is why most Wicca followers would still practice in secrecy, in fear of being persecuted. Some Wicca followers would say that their beliefs are not that contradicting with Christian beliefs, in fact some would claim that there are Wiccans who admire Jesus and his acts. All Wiccans agree that Satan-worship is not part of their practices.

Nature and its elements, earth, air, fire, and water , are loved and revered. They consider themselves one with nature. Harming nature would cause nature to harm them back. Those who follow Wicca would worship the “God” and the “Goddess.” They also believe in reincarnation and the after-life.

It is believed that there is no such thing as good or evil actions. Everything is relevant. But they strictly abide to what they call “The Wiccan Rede.” The Rede states, “do what ye will, harm ye none.” In simple explanation, Wicca practices can be used freely as long as no one gets hurt in the process. The Law of Three, that states that “harm will be returned three-fold.” is strictly followed.

For Wiccans, magick is similar to Christian prayers. Using spells are part of their rituals, although, not all Wiccans use or cast spells. Spells can be both used to help or hurt and manipulate other people. Wiccan followers are strictly prohibited from using spells that will harm other people in accordance to “The Rede.”

Common belief is that “love spells” are Wiccan rituals or magick, but the truth is they are actually not allowed to use that spell. According to Mike Nichols (in Charmed, I’m sure: the ethics of love spells), a love spell can be a negative spell since its intention is to manipulate a person’s feelings towards the spell caster. Such is not ethically allowed by Wiccans.

Before a Wiccan could perform any spell or ritual, they would reflect first on its consequences and repercussions. All its possible effects should be thoroughly considered. Spells could be followed precisely, although there are instances when they can be modified to fit the spell caster’s personality and situation.

Some people may exhibit wonder, disbelief, or at times fear of the understanding and knowledge that Wiccans possess. Spells and other rituals may capture the interest of some, or may fire up a debate between what is real and what is not. But understanding the basic beliefs and principles of Wiccans make us see that what they do is not against the basic principle of every human being, which is to share life and embrace it without harming others.

Do Potions & Spells Project Demonic Energy?

For the record, it is important to know that spells are projected energies sent out by spell casters of various color. Though not necessarily of the demonic type, this energy will also NEVER hurt you on two conditions.

One, you do not possess any of the negative collective consciousness imprinted on you. And two, you do not believe in any of these practices.

Ancient crafts

There had been many ancient practices since the olden times. These have surfaced and are now called by many names depending on the places where they came from: sorcery, witchcraft, voodoo, shamanism, and magic.

Like in all things, there is a dark side and a light side to these practices. There will always be a malevolent or benevolent part, an intention to hurt or an intention to heal.

The famous so-called Satanism, for example, uses the dark-side energies while the other group only uses light or benevolent energies. For purposes of information, the Satanic or demonic dark-side witchcraft energies are the most focused of all, and not necessarily the more powerful.


Spells are sometimes placed during satanic or demonic rituals by voodoo practitioners, sorcerers, witches or magicians who work in the dark side. Negative projections can also be sent by powerful shamans projecting hate, jealousy or a desire to possess your money, power, body or spirit.

Creating spells are not the sole province of malevolent witches, warlocks or bad people. Sometimes, spells are placed by sorcerers on themselves for protection against harm, or anything evil on them.

If a spell or a curse is placed on someone, this does not mean that person is bad. Mostly, these people are plainly accused of being a witch, a healer, or a herbalist. In the Middle Ages, they were burned at stakes. As they die, they might have screamed back at the crowd, “I’ll get back at you and hurt you.”

This scenario had set a pattern in the past. The negative energies are frozen in time. These are now the same energies that attract the collective consciousness into the future which is now.

Basic energies

In simplistic terms, this is the basic energy around spells and curses. Today, there are groups in the dark side that look for these patterns in certain susceptible people. At times, they look for regions on the planet and tap into these for the energy and empower themselves in the process.

When a person is vulnerable, angry or emotional, there is a tendency for spells to be attached to that person. When someone’s field is open (because of negative emotions), it is possible to project an idea into that person and locking her in a spell of intentional energy.

Last notes

It may seem surprising but there are still active cult groups today. Some of them are doing some bad things they were used to in the olden times. The best deterrent against spells and curses is still thorough information and understanding.

Knowing and fully understanding these age-old spells will dissolve your fears. For some strange reasons, spells have no power on people who do not fear but know how to face anything head on.

How To Properly Prepare For A Spell

Casting spells is not just about reading incantations and using candles and incense. There are more to it that reading lines and waiting for the outcome. For some, especially Wiccans, using or casting spells is a part of their religious belief. This could be an equivalent of a prayer. Casting spells is considered to be an intentional use of the universe’s power that already exists around us.

Casting or using spells would require meditation and directing the spell-caster’s spiritual energy into the desired outcome. Directing your personal energy means that a person should have an understanding of the power “within” the person. For example, casting a spell may require some items like candles, etc. The spell-caster should evoke imagery and visualize the goal while holding the items. This practice would direct the energy towards the items which would help in achieving the goals.

There are strict guidelines that should be followed when casting or using spells. Wiccans would follow the “The Wiccan Rede” which states that “do what ye will, harm ye none.” This clearly states that Wiccans could perform rituals and spells but its effect or consequences should be recognized first. For harm done to others and nature, “will return three-fold.” Spell-casting cannot be used for anger, revenge, and jealousy.

Aside from being clear with your intensions, you should also be clear in what situation you will be using the spell. There are different kinds of spells, all depending on the situation. There are healing, love, energy, wealth, peace and other kinds of spells.

There are spells which can be modified to suit the needs and situation of the spell-caster. There are some spells which would require the spell-caster to use the exact words, while some would say that those spells which are spoken by the spell-caster’s own words are more pure and powerful.

Spell-casting would also use different tools or methods. These tools would contain the energy which can be used to represent your desires and goals. There are different kinds of tools like oils, candles, cards, stones, runes, etc. Most of the times, the object used is something associated with the objective or intent. For example, if it is a money spell, loose change can be used as a tool.

The location where to cast the spell is also important. Wiccans believe that we are in one with nature. They may have some rituals and practices which would require them to be with nature, however, spell-casting can also be done privately. Some Wicca followers would often conduct their practices secretly, not only to avoid public persecution but to contain their energies and direct them towards their goal.

When casting a spell, it is important to keep it mind that we are using our energy and directing it to achieve a desired outcome. The universe is full of energy. Therefore, there could be negative energy which could interfere with how we use ours. Performing privately would ensure that our energy and our spell are not disturbed.

Another common problem among spell-casters is the timing. Some spells would require specific time to perform them. Adapting to time phase could be hard. There are some expert spell-catchers who would say that performing spells under a full moon, for instance, is not that important. It can increase the potency of the spell, but it is the intention which is more important. Directing our mind and spiritual energy towards our objective would be the determining factor on how effective our spells would be.

The Importance Of Protection Spells

Several protection spells are made side-by-side powerful magic spells, rituals, and incantations. These spells protect an individual from evil and danger, as well as shield them from spells being cast on them.

Aside from rituals, charms and other valuable items are used for protection such as anchor, angelica root, bluestone and laundry bluing, cat’s eye shell, cord charms intended to decay, corno charm, crucifix knife key ring, to name a few of charms being sold in the market.

Fouled in a length of line, the anchor symbolizes different meanings. The anchor is typically associated with a book and clasped hands or a heart. These things represent a triumvirate of virtues such as faith, hope, and charity. The anchor represents hope, the book is faith, and the hands and hearts are charity. The anchor is commonly believed to be a spellbound for safe travel.

Known as the Holy Ghost root, the angelica root is widely famous to be the best guardian and healer. That is why many people use it for warding off evil and bringing good luck in health and family matters. Angelica root provides strength to women too. Some old women put the blessed angelica root in a white flannel bag and place it near a baby for protection against magic spells.

In purifying and keeping a home from evil spirits, the people in the old times include the bluestone in mixing floor wash. Bluestone is a copper sulphate, odorless electric blue substance, and highly toxic. Its blue color makes it effective in warding off evil spirits. Some Hoodoo practitioners, who use bluestones, call this kind of protection spell as “blue water.”

In Europe and Middle East, cat’s eye shells are protection against the evil eye. This belief originally came from the Victorian era where these are made into jewelry to ward off the evil eye. In the United States, the cat’s eye shells are put into a mojo bags for protection from evil and to break a jinx. Worth noting is that cat’s eye shells are regular component of Hoodoo practice.

A practice found in many cultures is the use of wrist, ankle, or neck cords. For example in India, cord amulets are placed on the newborn babies’ necks or wrists for protection. These are left until it breaks. In Israel, red string cords are given to visitors of the shrine of the birthplace of Sarah. They say blessings will come when this cord breaks.

Corno charm is a long, gently twisted horn-shaped amulet worn for protection against the evil eye. Its origin is traced back from ancient Italy. Corno means “horno” and cornicello means “little horn.” Before Christianity was formed, ancient Italians believe these horns are sacred to Old European moon goddess. Mano cornuta is a “horned hand,” which is related to corno charms. A hand gesture symbolizes a man possessing a horn.

White Magic Love Spells

Of all the spells there are, white magic love spells top the list as the most popular. In an informal survey among magicians, over ninety percent says they perform only white magic.

However, some skeptics declare that many magic practitioners are not telling the truth about white magic. They claim that there are many categories of forbidden spells used by magicians that do not comply with the rules of white magic.

These critics continue and categorically state that there are no white magic love spells or money spells that draw their energy from white magic. While this is based on a misunderstanding, some people are already scared from asking magical assistance.

White magic

The first point would be that white magic is not of any particular tradition. White magic is more of a general philosophy of magic than anything else. The philosophy of white magic is simply this: magic is to heal and to help, not to harm and to create hardships.

Irregardless of how the ritual looks like and what it can do, every spell is part of white magic if it does no harm to anyone or anything. A love spell therefore falls under white magic because of the simple reason that it helps two people fall happily in love.

Love spells

White magic love spells work differently for different spell casters. The rituals may be performed according to old traditions, ancestry or personal preferences or style.

It is hard to categorize these spells. They may include chants and prayers, talismans and maybe dances under the moonlight – all kinds of rites. All these can be part of a white magic love spell.

These white magic love spells may be different at the moment of casting, but they are all similar in the way they strive to produce the effect they intend. They all want to bring a happy and fulfilling love to those involved in the spell – the spell subject and his loved one.


However, not all the intended effects can be called a success. Sometimes, the effects are totally in contrast to what was intended.

The reasons are as varied as the persons involved and their particular situations. A boyfriend you thought you loved may not be your true love after all. The girl you are attracted to may already have her own partner.

The girl you thought was perfect might be the quarrelsome type. The boy you could die for is simply not compatible with your personality. The list is long.

Because these white magic love spells are powered by far wiser spirits than we can ever fathom, they look for ways to turn around the effects of these spells, rendering them null.

These spiritual guides would find ways to circumvent our follies. In time, they will bring us our true love, those that we have always deserved and needed at the right moment of their own choosing.

In the end, the final effects are truly surprising in the use of these white magic love spells. They can give you what you really need to have, and not just the things you merely ask for in those spells.

Different Types Of White Magic Spells

By its name, one can surmise that white magic spell is performed only for good purposes. Fortunately, too, white magic spells have greater powers than black magic spells. Casting white magic spells can destroy, prevent, or stop altogether any type of witchcraft’s black magic spells, evil spells, curses or Wiccan hexes.

This protection from black magic spells also destroy the evil effects and dissolve the evil energies around. In addition, they also function as curse-removal magic spells. Protection spells coming from them against evil energies are also called repelling spells because they effectively repel these evil forces from harming would-be victims.

White magic spells can also be cast to help solve problems on love, money, do healing, counteract witchcraft spells, do fertility spells and protection against the evil eye.

Love spells

The most popular of all the white magic spells are the love spells. These are the spells cast on bringing lovers back, attracting someone and other requests.

Usually, these are instant love spells cast for a variety of reasons. It can be about getting back lost loves, returning lover spells, binding spells for lovers, and spells for other situations.

Love spells can be also be used as protection. The spells are used to protect marriages, or preventing divorces and separations. There are many dedicated spells to deal with the many love situations. They include break up spells, breaking love spells, marriage protection spells, lost love spells, soul mate spells, lust spells, anti-lying spells, and many others.

Money spells

One of the two most-frequently requested spells, money spells are invoked specifically to solve financial problems. With proper spell casting, money spells are very effective in drawing money from all sources.

It is said that money spells will not only solve your money problems but will see to it that money will be organized for you from friends, relatives and others.

Healing spells

Spells on healing deal mainly on situations related to health and health problems. They are used to help those suffering from illnesses that debilitate the person physically, mentally and emotionally.

For example, these are the spells to act on people who had undergone so much in the past and cannot seem to come out of it. Healing spells are some of the most affecting and most powerful spells in the white magic arsenal.

Fertility or pregnancy spells

For women who have lost all hopes of having a baby, this is one special spell to evoke. There is also a spell to help protect a pregnant woman from harm during her term. A special related spell is also used for the protection of young children.

Evil eye protection

Wherever one goes, there is always one person who gets jealous of others. Consequently, these people don’t want others to be happy. They carry negative energies with them and they can harm others by merely associating with them.

Some of them even place curses or spells on people they do not know but are simply jealous of. White magic spells can counteract these. There are also spells for curse removal made by black magic practitioners.

Different Types Of Spells

Spells are simply active prayers. Just like prayers, spells are used to catalyze or create change in one’s life or someone else’s, most often that of a loved one.

They are petitions to the Higher Powers to create the change. Spells are used to connect with our divine selves using our own energies to create changes.

Ordinarily, Wiccans/Witches will not perform a spell for anyone who has not asked and had given them permission. Spells, like those that use love magic to gain the good graces of an individual or curses are considered manipulative.

Anything that manipulates or goes against the free will of anybody is considered wrong.

Wiccan spells

The Old English term for witch is Wicca. They used it to counter all the negative stereotypes that society gave to witchcraft.

Wiccans use spells. These are rituals and prayers carried out to ask for divine help in a certain aspect of life. However, these must adhere to the Wiccan Rede, the witchcraft code of conduct.

The overall consideration is that any spell used to manipulate, dominate, or control another person is forbidden. The Wiccan Rede rules that a witch may engage in any action as long as it is carefully considered and that their actions do not harm anyone including themselves.

All of witchcraft is ruled by the Threefold Law. This is the belief that any action taken by any witch affecting another person will come back to the witch threefold, whether good or bad.

Constructive spells

Constructive spells should be done during the waxing of the moon, the time when the moon is full and bright. These are spells performed for luck, some fertility rites and spells used for protection.

To achieve the best end results, all witches agree that spells should be practiced while in a positive mood. Most often, too, in the practice of witchcraft, they have aids in spells to guarantee good results.

These aids in witchcraft, believed to have magical properties, include different herbs and leaves. One example is the bay leaf used often to invoke positive energy.

Consecration or Purification

The dictionary defines consecration as a “formal dedication to a religious or divine purpose.” In the practice of witchcraft, consecration should be practiced before any tool can be used.

Consecration is a form of purification and is done with salt, water and incense. These all stand for the five elements of nature – water, earth, fire, air and spirit.

It is important that consecration used for witchcraft be done in a positive state of mind. This will incorporate the spirit part of the elements.

Consecration is actually to ask for and gain approval of the God and Goddess for what is about to be performed.

Wiccan God and Goddess

In witchcraft, all spells are basically used to channel the power of the Wiccan God and Goddess to initiate positive changes and for the resolution of problems. In this regard, a spell-giver must know the phase of the moon is in while performing the spells.

As an example, it is best to do banishing spells in the waning of the moon when it is dark. Sample spells include hope for the end of illness, warding off destructive insects in farms, and many others.

Spells and rituals for home remedies

A collection of European magic spells and folk healing, the Pow-wows or The Long Lost Friend was first published in German language in 1820. The book contains healing spells, binding spells, protective spells, talismans, and benedictions.

The original title of the book was Der Lange Verborgene Freund, or The Long-Hidden Friend. John George Hohman, a German-American writer and publisher who immigrated to United States in 1802, wrote the book and later made a crude translation in English in 1846. The looming spiritualism in the United States in the nineteenth century began the incorporation of the word Pow -wow in the title of the subsequent reprints.

Pow-wow is a combination of Christian and shamanistic belief system associated with the Pennsylvania Dutch, who came from Germanic tribes and immigrated to Pennsylvania. Many of these immigrants are believed to have come from radical Christians.

They say there are five vital sources of spells in pow-wow. The Bible is the most common source of incantation. Another is the abovementioned book containing a collection of recipes and procedures. One more is The Long Lost Friend’s main source, the Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, who is a saint in the Roman Catholic Church. Other significant sources are the Sixth and Seventh books of Moses, who many say gained power through magical procedures. Lastly, the Secrets of Sympathy by William Wilson Beissel was republished in 1998 as a section of the book Pow-wow Power by Beissel’s great nephew.

In teaching the Pow-wow belief system, certain procedures are being followed. For instance, a student and teacher should come from different sexual orientations. Meaning, a male can only teach a female and vice versa. Breaking this rule will lessen the healing powers of both the student and the teacher. Pow-wow’s rituals and traditions mix prayers, incantations and ceremonies for home remedy purposes.

The book Long Lost Friend wrote the following instructions as a remedy to a sick person: without talking to anyone, the sick person will put water in a bottle before sunrise then close it up tight and place the bottle immediately in a box. Only the sick person should carry the key to the box for three days.

In eliminating pain or healing a wound, the pow-wow suggests rubbing the end of each three small twigs in the wound. Each twig should be cut in one smooth method. After rubbing it, wrap the twigs separately in a piece of white paper and put them in warm and dry place.

If a person has a whooping cough, a pow-wow practitioner would usually do a procedure different from the regular. First, they cut three small bunches of hair from the crown head of a child who has never seen his father. Then the hairs are sewn in an unbleached rag. This will be then hanged around the neck of the person having a cough. The thread used in sewing is unbleached too.

There is another procedure in curing cough. It is to thrust the sick person three times through a blackberry bush without saying anything. After which, the bush must grow fast at two ends and then thrusting is done on the second time.
