○ Acacia, rose, myrtle, jasmine or
lavender petals, in any combination or singly.
○ A red felt heart
Copper coin or ring
○ Blue thread of ribbon
As you fill the cloth with your items, visualize the type of lover you are looking

(2) To Bring Romantic Love to You (Ball 33)
○ A sprig of rosemary (for remembrance)
A piece of rose Quartz crystal
○ Rose or vanilla incense
1 pink or red votive candle
○ Small box
○ Red marker/pen
Sit in your own most powerful place. (That might
be inside, outside, near your favorite tree or by running water) First, write in red on the box 'Love is mine'. Light the
incense - this clears the atmosphere and puts you in the right mood. Put the rosemary and the rose quartz in the box. Put
anything else that represents love to you in the box (drawings of hearts, poems, or whatever - be creative). This spell is
to attract love to you, not a specific lover so don't use a representation of a particular person. Be in a very positive state
of mind. Imagine yourself very happy and in love. Burn the candle and say:
I am love
Love I will find
Will soon be mine
Love is me
Love I seek
I will soon meet
sit for a little while and concentrate again on being happy. Then pinch out the candle and add it to the box. Let the incense
burn out. Seal the box shut and don't open it until you have found your true love. When you have found your lover, take the
rose quartz out of the box and keep it as a reminder. Bury the entire box in the earth.

This spell can be used to attract love or draw a companion
closer. It should be started on the night of a New Moon.
two objects which obviously make a pair)
- 1 salt shaker
- 1 piece of pink ribbon about one meter long.
Assign one article as the feminine person and one as the masculine.
Take the piece of pink ribbon, and tie the female object to one end and the male to the other, leaving a good length
of ribbon between them.
Every morning untie the ribbon, move
the objects a little closer together and retie the knots. Eventually the objects will touch.
Leave them bound together for seven days before untying them. By this time, love should have entered
(4) To Find a New Lover (Ball 77)
This spell works best if it is performed at the time of
a New Moon. All the materials you use for this spell are new so that you change the basic vibration and can look forward with
hope to new and better times.
YOU WILL NEED
A heart-shaped rose petal or a red heart cut out of paper
A clean sheet of white paper
A new pen
A new candle (preferably pink)
A new envelope
day of a New Moon, cut a red heart out of paper or card. Take a clean sheet of white paper and write on it with the new pen:
As this heart shines in candlelight,
I draw you to me tonight.
change into nightclothes. When ready, light the candles and read the spell out loud. Hold the heart in front of the flame
and let the candlelight shine on it.
Place the heart and spell
in a new envelope. Seal it with wax from the candle.
the envelope and leave it untouched for one cycle of the Moon (28 days). By the time the Moon is new again, there should be
a new love in your life.
(5) To Beckon a Person (Ball 78)
This is a very simple method of putting out a vibration
which, if the relationship has a chance of succeeding, will make the other person aware of you. It does not force the other
person to do anything, but simply paves the way. *Remember - Sometimes the Universe just says NO.*
Say the following:
Know I move to you
As you move to me.
As I think of you,
As I call your name,
Call me to you.
Come to me in love.
Say the person's name three times (if known). You may need to recite the whole spell several times
in order to feel the proper effect.
(6) For a Lover to Come to You (Ball 79)
This spell is reputed to work very
quickly. Red candles represent passion, so you must take responsibility for whatever happens when you call your lover to you.
YOU WILL NEED
- Two silver
- A red candle
Stick two silver pins through the middle of
a red candle at midnight. Concentrate on your lover. Repeat his or her name several times.
After the candle burns down to the pins, your lover will arrive.
(7) To Achieve
Your Heart's Desire (Ball 80)
This is quite an effective spell and does give you something to do while you are
waiting for true love!
YOU WILL NEED
- A fresh rose - preferably
red and perfumed
Find out the time of the next sunrise. Just before going to
sleep, place a red candle on either side of the rose.
morning at Sunrise take the rose outside. Hold the rose in front of you and say
This red rose is for true love.
True love come to me.
Now go back inside and put the rose between the candles again. Light the candles
and visualize love burning in the heart of the one you want.
the candles burning day and night until the rose fades. When the rose is dead, pinch out the candles and then bury the rose.
(8) To Strengthen Attraction (Ball 81)
If you love someone but feel that they are not reciprocating,
try this spell. Be aware, though, that by using this spell you are trying to have a direct effect on the other person. Before
you perform it you should have tried to work out why they seem indifferent and consider whether what you are proposing is
appropriate. If, for instance, the person you want to attract has not learnt how to commit to a relationship, it would be
unfair to try and influence them. (This could be against the person's will and bad karma - anything involving the other person's
hair without their consent is usually a bad idea. Wouldn't do it.)
YOU WILL NEED
- A few strands of the person's hair
- A rose-scented incense stick
Light the incense.
Repeat the name of the one you long for, saying each time
love me now.
Hold the hair on the burning incense until it frizzles
away. As the hair burns, think of their indifference dissipating and being replaced by passion. Leave the incense to burn
(9) To Have Your Love Returned (Ball 82)
This spell is more complicated because it requires an understanding
of symbolism. The objects you use need not be the real things, they can be miniaturizations such as cake decorations (see
charms on page 268 of Ball). The horseshoe represents luck in love, the key represents the key to your heart, and the gold
candle represents the relationship. Traditionally a pink candle represents the female and the blue the male, so adjust your
colors accordingly. You might use this spell when you think a relationship with someone would be good.
YOU WILL NEED
- One pink candle
- One blue candle
- One gold candle
- Two roses
- An article of their clothing (failing that, use something of your own)
On a Friday, light the pink and blue candles (pink first if you are female, blue if male), followed by the gold. Place the
horseshoe and key on either side of the candles, with the roses between them.
When the candles have burnt down, wrap the flowers, the key and the horseshoe in the clothing. Place the items in
a bedroom drawer and leave them alone for a fortnight (fourteen days).
If the flowers are still fresh, this is a good sign. (is that possible?) You should then bury them, or put them (along
with the horseshoe and key) in a potpourri.
(10) To Bring a Loving Relationship to You (Ball 83)
This spell is again looking for true
love, not a particular person. It is a very gentle spell that uses natural rhythms to achieve its ends.
YOU WILL NEED
- Rose petals (preferably wild)
- A natural source of moving water (not a household tap)
Visualize a person with the qualities of your ideal mate. Collect the petals. Take the petals to
any source of moving water.
Throw the petals into the water and
As this rose moves out to sea,
So true love will come to me.
incantation, again visualize your idea mate.
Flowing water is
a powerful medium and carrier of energies. Flowing outwards it carries your energy towards new experiences. Flowing inwards
it draws love to you.
(11) Partnership Spell (Ball 86)
List the qualities you desire in a partner and burn the
list, thinking very strongly of your part in the relationship. Blow the ashes to the four winds. Your new interest will soon
Be careful, since you might get more than you had
(12) To Create Opportunities for Love (Ball 87)
This is not a spell to draw a person
to you, but more to 'open the way' - to alert the other person to the possibility of a relationship with you. Let's assume
there is someone in whom you are interested, but the interest does not seem to be reciprocated. This spell ensures there are
no hindrances, but there has to be at least some feeling for it to stand a chance of working. The spell should be performed
on a Friday.
YOU WILL NEED
- A wine glass
- A ring (traditionally your mother's wedding ring would be used)
- Red silk ribbon about 30 inches (80cm)long
Put a wine glass right way up on the table.
Make a pendulum by suspending the ring from the red silk ribbon.
Hold the pendulum steady by resting your elbow on the table, with the ribbon between your thumb and forefinger. Let the ring
hang in the mouth of the wine glass.
Clearly say your name followed
by that of the other person. Repeat their name twice (three times in all).
Then, thinking of them, spell their name out loud.
the ring to swing and tap against the wine glass once for each letter of their name. Tie the ribbon around your neck, allowing
the ring to hang down over your heart.
Wear it for three weeks
and repeat the spell every Friday for three weeks. By the end of the third week, the person you have in your sights will show
an interest, unless it is not meant to be.
(13) To Win the Heart of the One You Love (Ball 88)
You do need patience for this spell
and you may well find that you lose the impetus for the relationship before the spell is complete. This would suggest that
the relationship may not be right for you.
YOU WILL NEED
- An onion bulb
- A new flowerpot
Scratch the name of the one you love on the base of the bulb. Plant it in earth in the pot. Place
the pot on a windowsill facing the direction in which your sweetheart lives.
Over the bulb, repeat the name of the one you desire morning and night until the bulb takes root, begins to shoot
and finally blooms. Say the following incantation daily.
its roots grow,
May its leaves grow,
May its flowers
And as it does so,
[name of person]'s love
(14) To Have a Person Think About You (Ball 89)
This is another spell that works over
time. A relationship that grows slowly generally has more chance of success than a whirlwind romance, and that is what is
YOU WILL NEED
- Packet of seeds
- Pot of soil (to grow them in)
- A small copper object, such as a penny
On a night when the Moon is waxing, go outside and hold the penny in the Moonlight.
Bury the penny in the soil in the pot.
Sprinkle the seeds on top to form the initial of the other person's name.
As the seeds germinate, love should also grow. Remember that just as plants need nurturing, so does love.
(15) To Rekindle
Your Lover's Interest (Ball 90)
This technique is worth trying when your lover is not paying you enough attention.
You are using the laurel leaves to back up the energy that you are putting into making the relationship work.
YOU WILL NEED
- A large quantity of laurel leaves
- A fire
Sit in front of the
embers of a fire and gaze into them, concentrating on your lover. Keep your gaze fixed on the fire.
With you left hand, throw some laurel leaves onto the embers. As they burn, say:
Laurel leaves burn in the fire.
to me my heart's desire.
Wait until the flames die down, then
do the same again.
Repeat this action once more.
It is said that within 24 hours your lover will come to you.
(16) A Love
Tree Spell (Ball 133)
This spell uses all of the Elements in a very simple fashion. As with all love spells in particular,
you must take responsibility for what you do.
YOU WILL NEED
leaves on which you can draw
- Green thread
- Seven pennies
On one of the leaves, draw an image of yourself. On the other, draw a representation of your ideal love, or the ideal person
you want to meet. Using green thread, sew the two together and knot the thread tightly. Find a tree that you like. Within
a natural crevice or hole, hid the leave inside and secure it well. As you are doing this say:
Tree of Earth, Water, Air, and Fired
me the love that I desire.
Bury seven pennies at the
tree base. You might like to visit the tree as often you can to reinforce your relationship with the Dryads and Nature Spirits.
(17) A Ring Love Spell (Feng Shui Tip of the Day)
For single women only: Wear
a ring on your right index finger that you know will allow you to meet that perfect partner sometime inside the next three
months. Then, once you have the mate of your dreams, don't fall asleep at the proverbial wheel. If you think that the relationship
and romance that ring bought round to you is worth a lifetime, switch the ring and wear it on your right middle finger. This
will prompt the partner to ask for your hand sometime in the ensuing three months. A half year to happiness sounds just about
right to me!
(18) Hot Chocolate as Aphrodisiac (Feng Shui Tip of the Day)
are trying to win the love of that special someone do what th e Aztec and the Maya and so many cultures have done since then
and serve them a cup of steaming hot chocolate. Of course, if you were to rip a page out of those Spanish cookbooks and top
off this treat with a pinch of powdered cinnamon and sprinkle of cardamom, well, just don't say I didn't warn you. Be careful
what you wish for, in this case you'll definitely spice things up and get what you desire.
Mirror Spell (Feng Shui Tip of the Day)
On any of the three nights of any month's
full Moon, leave a small hand-held mirror outside, reflective side facing up so that the marriage god in the moon 'charges'
the mirror with essence and energies. At the end of the three days, move the mirror inside making sure to immediately cover
it with silk or satin and being equally sure that no one else sees or handles this piece. Then put it somewhere private and
safe for the next 27 days. At the end of that time frame, picture yourself in a wonder-filled and committed relationship as
you stare into your magic mirror. Holding the mirror in front of you continue visualizing and pouring those intentions into
the looking glass. If you actually have a specific someone who's attention you'd like to capture, carry the mirror with you
and then orchestrate being in their presence somehow. When they are not looking, flash the mirror in their direction capturing
their essence and then put it back in its case. It won't even take near that long for you to see rewarding relationship results!
(20) Dream of a Lover (Feng Shui Tip of the Day)
With only one day to go
before Cupid loads his bow and starts to shoot his heart targeted arrows all over the place, it's only appropriate for the
energies of this evening center around 'dreaming your sweetie.' So in deference to those energies, here are some time tested
and tradition-filled ways of finding out who your perfect partner is just by getting a good night's sleep: Pick a sprig of
rosemary while infusing it with the power of your intention to find the name of your intended. Place the herb under your pillow
and then right before you slip off to sleep be thinking about seeing your love in your slumber. Or, you can remove the four
cards from the four suits from a deck of playing cards that represent the suitor you are wishing for (kings for a man, queens
for a woman) and put them under your pillow to awaken a dream that will tell of your future love. You should then, sometime
during the night, definitely dream of your next romantic encounter.
(21) Pink Rose Spell (Feng Shui Tip of the
Now, if you want to make your relationship dreams come true then try this: on a Friday
night, take a long stemmed pink rose and remove the thorns. Now trim the stem until it is about one inch long. Pierce this
piece with a straight pin so that the tip emerges from the other side. Fill a screwtop jar with water and drop the rose in.
Each night for seven consecutive, light a pink candle that has been placed beside the jar and then blow it out right before
you retire for your rest. After the prescribed seven nights and when the rose finally fades, toss the petals outside and into
the wind. The promise of the pledge is that your new and true love should come calling sometime within 28 days of completing
this exercise. Just remember, a rose by any other name can completely smell just as saweeeeet!
