A spell from my private collection. This spell is to strengthen the love you have with someone before a life-changing event (for example, a wedding/handfasting). It’s best done on a new moon.
Casting Instructions for ‘Strengthen Your Love’
Step 1: Set up the candles in a semicircle if at all possible (this will be easier the longer you’ve been with him or her). Petals rose .
Step 2: Place your four objects in the semicircle on top of the rose petals. Say the title of each one aloud as you set them down (Something old, something new, etc.).
Step 3: Choose 1 candle and hold it in your hand. It does not matter which candle you choose as long as you’re comfortable with your choice. Light your chosen candle and say: “Great Mother, prepare for the times to come, both the good and the bad. If this union is meant to be, let’s separate us.”
Step 4: Using the lit candle in your hand, carefully light the other candles, one by one. As you light each one, imagine a specific trait that you love about your connection (that you complete each other’s sentences, which you understand just what the other wants, etc.), and say it out loud. Each candle should represent a different relationship characteristic.
Step 5: After all your candles are lit, set the one you chose back in its place in the semicircle. Watch the candles’ dancing flames and feel their tender heat. Watch their bouncing light flicker over the room. Bear in mind the happiest memories of your journey together.
Step 6: When you are finished reliving the happiest moments of your relationship, begin extinguishing the candles one by one, starting with the one you chose. As you do so, say : “The years we’ve collect as we walk our path together. In this period of joy and love, we become one.” Keep your four things in a safe place and save you white rose petal and one red one for good luck.
