This spell uses symbolism in using the fig and egg, but also ancient procedures of acknowledgement from the offering to the Earth Mother for fertility. Crops were often offered to the goddess in the hope of a great harvest and in this charm that hope is for new life. The spell is best done at the time of the New Moon or at spring time when the Goddess of Fertility is commemorated.
Casting Instructions for ‘Fertility’
Light your incense and the candle. Place the egg on the left and the fig on the right, the bowl in the middle. Draw a symbol of your kid on the egg.
Very carefully break the egg into the bowl and set the empty shell on the left side again. Make a small cut in the fig with your boline and carefully scrape the seeds into the bowl.
Place the remains of the fig into the egg shell to represent the physical baby within the womb and again replace it on the left side.
With your finger, stir the contents of the bowl clockwise three times and say:
As these two become one
May the Goddess and the God
Bless our marriage with child
Leave the bowl in the middle and allow the candle to burn out. Take the bowl and the eggshell with its contents to a location where you can safely bury them. (Your own backyard is great if you have one otherwise a quiet secluded spot.)
Place the eggshell in the ground and pour -over it the contents of the bowl. As you cover it with earth say:
I offer to Mother Earth
A symbol of fertility
In love and gratitude for her bounty
Now wait developments without anxiety.
This charm is full of symbolism. The fig represents not just fertility, but also is thought to feed the mind that part of us that some call the soul. The egg is an ancient symbol of fertility and really of the start of life. Bringing the two together acknowledges your sense of responsibility for the continuation of life
