(1) To Ease a Broken Heart (Ball 36)

(Be sure to charge all ingredients before you begin)
  • Strawberry tea (1 bag)
  • Small wand or stick from a willow tree
  • Sea salt
  • 2 pink candles
  • Mirror
  • Pink drawstring bag
  • Quartz crystal
  • Copper penny
  • Bowl made of china or crystal that is special to you
  • 1 tsp dried jasmine
  • 1 tsp orris-root powder
  • 1 tsp strawberry leaves
  • 1 tsp yarrow
  • 10 drops (at least) apple-blossom oil or peach oil
  • 10 drops (at least) strawberry oil

On a Friday or evening (the day sacred to the Goddess Venus) take a bath in sea salt in the light of a pink candle. As you dry off and dress, sip the strawberry tea. Use a dab of strawberry oil as perfume or cologne. Apply makeup or groom yourself to look your best.

Cast a circle with the willow wand around a table on which the other ingredients have been placed. Light the second pink candle. Mix all oils and herbs in the bowl. While you stir, look at yourself in the mirror and say:

        Oh, Great Mother Earth,
        Nurture and protect me now.
        Let me use the strengths I know I have.
Look into the mirror after you have finished mixing the ingredients and say:
        Mother of all things, 
        All that is great is mine,
        Help me now to be the person I can be
        And let me overcome my difficulty.

Put half the mixture in the pink bag and add the penny and crystal. Carry the bag with you until you feel you no longer need it. Leave the other half of the potion in the bowl in a room where you will smell the fragrance. Repeat this ritual every Friday, if you so wish. 

(2) To Forget About an Ex-Lover  (Ball 98)
This spell is best done at the time of the waning Moon or at New Moon. It is not done to get rid of an old partner, but to exorcize your bad feelings about them. For this reason, it is sensible to finish the spell by sending loving thoughts to your former partner. There are other herbs that can be used if it feels right. Woody nightshade is poisonous and you may not care to use it.

  • Photograph of your ex-partner
  • Suitable container for burning the photograph (one in which the ashes can be saved)
  • Root of bittersweet (woody nightshade ,which is poisonous!)
  • Red cloth or bag

Place the picture of your ex-partner in the container. Set it alight.

Gather up all your hurt and pain as the picture burns down. Feel them flowing away from you as you say these words or similar.

        Leave my heart and leave me free
        Leave my life, no pain for me.
        As this picture burns to dust,
        Help me now, move on I must.
Repeat the words until the picture is burnt out. Taking the herb root, hold it first to your solar plexus. Allow the bad feelings to flow into the root. Then touch the root to your forehead indicating that you have converted the bad feelings to good.

Wrap everything, including the container of ashes, in your red bag or cloth. As soon as convenient, bury it as far away from your home as possible. And shower immediately if used the woody nightshade.
