Amulets, Talismans & Charms

Amulets, Talismans & Charms

Circle Amulet Spell

Janina Renee
The circle symbolizes the Sun and archtype of the self. These are astrologically appropriate, for Sun signs represent self-expression. Carl Jung thought it was important for people to meditate on symbols of the self, but in modern life many of us lose our ability to do so. Therefore, an important addition to anyone's collection of magical jewelry is a circular broach or pendant. If you have such an artical, charge it with the following spell to recall you to your self.
First, hold the item to the light of the noon Sun as you recite, "In this round, myself am found; whole unto myself, at one with the circle of power and creation." Then, wear this amulet when feeling tired or ill, to invoke the restoration that comes through reconnection with the deep self.

ABC Protection Amulet

Ann Moura
To make a protection amulet, during the third or tenth hours after sunrise, or the first or eigth hours after sunset, sew a small pouch from black cloth and red thread. Place three herbs in a cauldron, and speak after each:
"Agrimony to return negative energies to the sender.
Blackthorn to deflect negative energies away from me.
Clove to exorcise harmful energies from my presence."
Stir with the tip of the ritual knife, and recite:
"Three herbs I call to work for me, harnessing negative energy.
Take and bind and send away harmful forces in my way."
Put the herbs in the pouch, sew it up, and set it on a pentacle. Wave your wand and touch it to the pouch.
"Earth and Air, Fire and Water!
Emanations of the Lady and the Lord!
I call upon they grace and love to seal protection in this ward!"
Carry it in your pocket or purse.

If it is possible, make the Ladder on the night of a Full Moon.
Arrange your altar and cast a circle.
Use about a yard of each colours yarn. Tie the ends together and braid them together while you say :
"Yarn of Red, Black, and White Work Your magick spell this night."
Repeat this until the braid is finished. Braiding is a magical act because it makes three strands into one. This represents the three aspects of the Goddess in one. Tie a knot at the end of the braid. Starting at about a foot from the beginning of the braid, tie a feather with a knot around the base and say : (example a green feather)
"With this feather and this string Prosperity this charm will bring."
Tie all nine feathers to the cord, spacing them as evenly as possible. Tie the ends of the cord together to form a circle. Pass the finished Ladder above a candle flame then incense smoke. Sprinkle it with consecrated water and say:
"In the names of the Goddess and the God By Air, Earth, Fire and Water I consecrate this charm Of feathers nine and cord of three As I will, so mote it be!"
Hang the Ladder where it will not be seen by others but where you will see it every day.
