Valentine’s Day is around the corner. You know what that means…
Like it or not, the world turns its attention to love. People focus on making themselves more attractive, deepening their relationships, or attracting new partners.
Looking for some easy, powerful rituals to get you in the Valentine’s Day mood?
Here are a couple perfect for this holiday:
A Ritual for Self-Love
It’s often said that you cannot love someone else if you do not love yourself. What that actually means is if you don’t care about yourself, you’re more likely to attract partners who don’t care either.
Self-love is the foundation for a healthy relationship. What better time to practice self-love than Valentine’s Day?
Self Love Spell
For this spell, you will need:
- Pink candle
- Rose quartz
- Oil (even olive oil is fine)
Dress the candle with oil. As you do this, think about what it is you are calling in for yourself. Place the candle on a fire-safe surface, with the rose quartz in front of it. Light the candle, and say…
Fire warm, and fire bright,
Warm my heart with love tonight.
Not love for others, but for me,
Show me the beauty I cannot see.
Sit in front of the candle, slow your breathing and relax. Take the rose quartz in your hands, and picture its energy connecting to your heart. Visualize yourself happy and at peace. When you are ready, snuff the candle. Keep the rose quartz beside your bed. Repeat this ritual whenever you feel your confidence dipping.
If you are single, Valentine’s Day can be challenging. Nobody likes to see happy couples everywhere if they are feeling lonely. But you can use the energy of this season to draw in a lover.
You will need:
- Any tarot deck
- Oil (even lie oil is fine)
- Paper or parchment
- A pen
- A clear quartz crystal
- Pink or red candle
This spell works by sympathetic magic, which relies on symbolism. First, look through the tarot deck for a symbol of love — The Lovers card or Two of Cups. Place that card in front of you.
Meditate on this card for a moment. What characteristics do you want your ideal lover have? Get specific. Use the pen and paper to make a list. Place the paper under the tarot card, and set the clear quartz on top of it. This allows the quartz to amplify the energy of your desires and send them out to the world.
Next, dress your candle with oil and write your name on the base. (I use a paperclip to carve my name in.) Place the candle in or on a fire-safe container.
Light the candle and say…
Perfect love, come and see.
Perfect love, be drawn to me.
Allow the candle to burn completely. (If you need to leave it unattended, snuff it and relight it when you come back.) Return the tarot card to the deck, save the quartz crystal, and bury the paper and candle remains near your front door.
Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate love of all types.
Whether you need more self-love, want a new lover, or need to enhance the passion between you and your partner, now is the best time to put these energies to work for you.
