Cinnamon Money Spell

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.

The Enchanted Spell Oracle 

Creating Magickal Recipes. Part Two

Plants, herbs and flowers are always in the Kitchen Witches repertoire.

There are plenty of books on the magickal properties of plants and flowers that are extremely useful when designing a spell. There are plenty of excellent reference books, containing plants and their associated metaphysical meanings to help create that perfect recipe. As an example, the humble eggplant is said to attract money and the ever-present herb, dill, attracts luck.

Symbols are very potent in spellwork. I love working with symbols because they bypass the conscious mind and appeal directly to the subconscious. There are lots of Symbols available for you to use, some notable ones include the star for good luck, or the yin yang symbol for peace and balance.

You can use crystals as well, with plenty to choose from and each having their own energy. Some commonly used crystals include clear quartz for healing and protection and citrine for prosperity and abundance.

Having said that, it’s much better to choose an item you resonate with, rather than go with the traditional norm. For example, just because roses are traditionally used in love spells – it doesn’t mean you have to use them. There may be other flowers, like hibiscus, or herbs such as oregano, that speak to you, and you prefer these plants instead of roses in a love charm. The charm works better when it is personal and caters to your likes and dislikes.

In the next couple of fortnights, I will talk you through how I created the spells for Abundance, Happiness and Prosperity so you can get a good idea on how the process works.

The Enchanted Spell Oracle 

 

The Priestess Moon Oracle

Fast forward to 2013 and 2 more solo exhibitions later, I saw a ‘Create your own Oracle Deck’ online course being advertised by fellow artist and author Cheralyn Darcey. It had always been a dream of mine to create my own set of oracle cards, so I quickly joined!

It took me two years to work on and self-publish my first deck, The Priestess Moon Oracle which featured the ten paintings from my Book of Shadows exhibition plus 23 more from my various exhibitions, and commissioned artworks over the last twenty years.

The Priestess Moon Oracle, along with help from Rockpool Publishing morphed into the Enchanted Spell Oracle; the one you see before you today. However, the Enchanted Spell Oracle differs from the Priestess Moon Oracle in that it contains 17 new artworks. It carries with it the original philosophy from the Book of Shadows exhibition and reads like a ‘spiritual cookbook.’ With each card including an enchanted spell recipe to play with.

Many people are asking me the difference between my original Priestess Moon Oracle and the Enchanted Spell Oracle, and it’s a fair question! Here they are:

  • The Priestess Moon Oracle (PMO) has 33 cards, 6 of those cards have spells, and it was, in part, a retrospective of my 20-year career as a professional artist. Each card’s meaning was guided by the painting’s insight.
  • The Enchanted Spell Oracle (ESO) has 36 cards, and all have fun spells to try. 17 cards have been retained from the PMO and 19 new cards have been created. The ESO focuses on Celtic priestesses, and each priestess represents a plant or herb that can be used in ‘Medieval Hedgewitch’ magick.
  • The Priestess Moon Oracle was a self-publishing project, and limited to 100 only. It retails at $49 to reflect that. (I have only 15 sets left).
  • The Enchanted Spell Oracle is being published worldwide by Rockpool, and print run will likely be 500 – 1000 to start. The ESO is $29.99

I hope that helps! I believe the Enchanted Spell Oracle is a very different entity to the Priestess Moon Oracle.

Next fortnight, you will learn how to create a magickal space in your home.
