Dear Cupid!

Dear Cupid!

Don’t full yourself, these spells won’t make someone fall in love with you. There are more like telling the universe you are available for love and you’d love to receive some.

If you are looking for ways to bending another’s will for their admiration, you won’t find them here. Look at it more like a way to escape the lockdown boredom and loneliness, and just open your mind and heart for the love that is hiding right in front of you. Love magic is about attracting the love that already exists.

It should be done with a calm and positive mind, so it’s best to meditate before conducting spells. Also, you need to be completely honest with your intentions. If you desire someone for the wrong reasons, your spell will most likely fail.

Every spell consists of three steps – setting an intention, invoking it into a ritual and putting your faith in action because love won’t just show up at your door.

All love magic must be done on Friday because it’s ruled by Venus, the goddess of love. It’d be great if it coincides with waxed or crescent Moon, as this time is full of positive lunar energy and is all about attracting newness into our lives.

Now that you are prepared, let’s ease Cupid a little bit with these five simple love spells, perfect for beginners.

Candle Magic

What you need: a pink or red candle; rose petals; rose, jasmine, honeysuckle, gardenia, ginger, and orris-root oils; pink or red glitter

The ritual: Carve your name and astrological sign on one side of the candle, and the name and astrological sign of your dream lover on the other. Add the oils with some rose petals and glitter for decoration, because Venus will love it. Communicate what you want to happen in your love life. Then, light the candle and let it complete burn down.

Pink Ribbon Spell

What you need: a red or pink ribbon; a pair of shoes

The ritual: Conduct the spell on a New Moon. Let one shoe represent you, and the other your crush. Tie the two shoes at the end of the ribbon and every day move them closer and closer to each other until they are touching. Then leave them be for seven days.

Orange Spell

What you need: dried orange peels; a pink cloth
