The first spell I want to talk through is a money spell, and this spell comes with the Abundance card. I have used this many times, and it is good for small windfalls.
For this charm, you will need a potato, 8 toothpicks, a stick of cinnamon and a gold coin. Cinnamon is often used in money spells and is known as the ‘sweet money spice.’ I like to start this spell on a new moon, as this is a great time to work magick for things you want to increase in your life.
This spell is adapted from a book called ‘Witta, an Irish Pagan Tradition’ by Edain McCoy – it has some excellent Kitchen Witch charms and enchantments in it and it’s well worth a look. This recipe is an example of how we can take an idea that we love, expand on it, tweak it and add our own personal stamp on it.
Cinnamon Money Spell
We need one potato and we are going to cut that in half, and scoop out the flesh of each side with a teaspoon.
Then place some cinnamon stick, and a gold coin inside the hollow. The coin is optional, though. Join the potato back together with 8 toothpicks – 8 being a very lucky number, money wise. This spell then needs to be buried in the garden, underneath a fast-growing money herb such as basil. You will see that the potato will grow good strong leaves quite fast, and I like to visualise the money growing along with it.
There are all sorts of symbols in the Abundance image that carry with them the energy of wealth – the guidebook goes into extra detail – but the keywords of the Abundance card are ‘wealth, money, and income.’
Next fortnight, we look at a magickal cocktail recipe for a Prosperity Potion.
