Inner Divinity Spell
Color of the day: Gold
Incense of the day: Marigold
Some sense of the spiritual, and of our connection to the spiritual,
adds meaning and purpose to our daily lives. You don’t have to be a
theist to wonder how we and everything we share Earth-space with got
here. Taking that wonder into your daily life can give you a sense of
creativity, awe, and responsibility. This spell is to help you connect
to the mystery that is life. Go outside after dark, to a place where you
are safe and where your neighbors won’t be watching. Your own backyard,
or an apartment courtyard or poolside, is fine. Close your eyes and
listen closely to what’s going on around you. Do you hear insects?
Leaves blowing in the wind? Animals? Do you hear traffic rushing by, or
sirens? See this all as a big circle, radiating out from where you live.
What is your place in all of this movement?

Incense of the day: Patchouli
Take a walk today to gain insight into any situation that concerns
you. Find a natural place away from distraction where you will feel safe
and can walk for at least thirty minutes. Stand with eyes closed for a
moment, holding the situation or question in your mind. Then choose a
direction, open your eyes, and begin to walk. As you walk, consider the
images and symbols you see in the clouds, the trees, the stones, and
more. What story do they tell about your question? If one tree, stone,
cloud, or body of water calls to you, take the time to pick out a few
images from that object and listen to their story. Open your mind and
senses to the answers that are laid out before you. All you need to do
is read the story.

Incense of the day: Bay laurel
According to the ancient Roman calendar, this was the day the previous
year’s wine production was served. The first wine poured was used to
honor Jupiter, the greatest of their gods. Keeping this in mind, today
would be a good day to seek Jupiter’s aid in achieving your goals. Light
a deep blue candle and scent the room with success-attracting herbs
associated with Jupiter, such as clove or nutmeg. Write one goal in blue
ink on clean white paper, and visualize it coming to fruition. Decorate
the corners of the paper with symbols representing Jupiter—usually
lightning bolts or eagle feathers. Save the paper and review it later to
see if things have started moving. Watch for any opportunities coming
your way that would help you achieve your wish and follow through. When
the spell has worked, leave an offering of wine or grape juice by your door.

is the twenty-sixth of April. Two plus six equals eight, and eight is
the number of infinity. Take time today to contemplate infinity. What
does the word mean to you? The dictionary defines “infinity” as
“endless or unlimited space, time, distance, quantity, etc.” What is
the legacy you would like to leave to infinity? Are you living that
life now? Consider the scope of your life within infinity. Even if you
feel you’re a tiny blip in the vastness of it all, shouldn’t you live
your path and leave your blip better than you found it? What changes do
you need to make? Meditate on all the possibilities—which are also
infinite—and make some positive choices for your life.

Spell to Impress
Color of the day: Turquoise
Incense of the day: Myrrh
This spell is designed to get on the good side of a boss (or teacher).
It uses a powerful tool often not discussed in the occult: metaphor.
“Apple polishing” is a metaphor for currying favor with a superior. In
this spell, we’ll use the metaphor to create the reality. Buy the most
beautiful apple you can find. Get a bright yellow cloth. Burn cinnamon
incense. Repetitive motion is very effective in spells. Rhythmic
activities such as drumming, weaving, or reciting verse, all help induce
a trance state and aid concentration. You’re going to polish the apple
rhythmically. You might choose one word to repeat while polishing, such
as “approval” or “success” or “impress.” Ground and center. Visualize
how successful you are, and how much the boss approves of your work.
Polish the apple while continuing this visualization. When you finish,
say “So mote it be!” Give your polished apple to the boss as soon as

Invocation Of The Moon Goddess
Diana, queen of night,
In all your beauty bright,
Shine on us here,
And with your silver beam
Unlock the gate of dream;
Rise bright and clear.
On earth and sky and sea,
Your magic mystery
Its spell shall cast,
Wherever leaf may grow,
Wherever tide may flow,
Till all be past.
O secret queen of power,
At this enchanted hour
We ask your boon.
May fortune's favor fall
Upon true witches all,
O Lady Moon!
