“Here are some spells crafted for you, so that your wishes may come true
Written by light of the moon, use them wisely, results will come soon
With love and respect, you make your plea. That it be blessed by the power of three
Your work the Lady watches to see that it harm none so mote it be”
Cord and Candle Magick can be used to carry out spell work and these methods are effective and enjoyable. The colours, numbers, herbs, spices, and symbols that you use to work your magick are just as important as your words and the timing can be crucial too. A spell to make something happen should be created from the moon’s first quarter until the moon is full.
A spell to make something stop or go away should be created when the moon is waning (getting smaller). This would be carried out on from the first day after the full moon until the dark moon just before the first quarter; these methods require time to prepare and should be done in circle. Cast your circle in the method shown below. When everything is in place sit at your altar and begin to work on your chosen method whether it is cord magick or candle magick.
Simple steps to cast your circle
1 Gather your tools and lay them on your altar
2 Focus your attention on the Lord, Lady or both
3 Draw your circle line from east to north
4 Place a T-lite candle at each quarter beginning at the east and ending at the north
5 Carry a burning incense stick around your each of the quarters from the east to the north. This represents the element of Air
6 Light each of the four T-lite candles starting at the east. This represents the element of Fire
7 Sprinkle some water around the circle line starting at the east. This represents the element of Water
8 Sprinkle some salt around the perimeter of your circle from the east to the north. This represents the element of Earth
9 Draw a pentacle at each of the four quarters from the east to the north and say a little prayer to ask the guardians of each quarter to guide you in your work. You can say something simple such as “May the guardian of air guide and protect me” and at the south “May the guardian of fire guide and protect me” Repeat this for each quarter.
Your circle is now ready and you can sit or stand in your circle say your prayers to the Lord or the Lady or both and if you have a magickal intention you can state it now. Any magickal work such as healing work, making or performing spells, performing rituals, candle or cord magick, or creating verses for future use.
Closing your Circle
When you are ready to close your circle, you can follow these steps
1 Give thanks to the Lord or Lady or both for listening to you
2 Move around your circle starting at the east snuffing out your candles and thanking each of the quarter guardians for assisting you in your work
3 When you are finished say “the circle is now closed but the work will continue until it is done “And it harm none so mote it be”…
