Casting Instructions for ‘Strengthen Your Love’
[lgc_column grid=”65″ tablet_grid=”50″ mobile_grid=”100″ last=”false”]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). Sprinkle the rose petals inside the semicircle.
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 one candle from the semicircle and hold it in your hand. It does not matter which candle you choose as long as you are comfortable with your choice. Light your chosen candle and say: ”Great Mother, prepare me for the times to come, both the good and the bad. If this union is meant to be, let nothing separate us.”
Step 4: Using the lit candle in your hand, carefully light the other candles, one by one. As you light each one, visualize a specific trait that you love about your relationship (that you finish each other’s sentences, that you know just what the other wants, etc.), and say it out loud. Each candle should represent a different relationship characteristic.
Step 5: Once all your candles are lit, place 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. Remember 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 have accumulate as we walk our path together. In this time of love and joy, we become one.” Keep your four items in a safe place and save one white rose petal and one red one for good luck.[/lgc_column][lgc_column grid=”35″ tablet_grid=”50″ mobile_grid=”100″ last=”false”]You will need the following items for this spell:
