I've been hearing from many people lately who are really hurting financially in this economy. It seems that everyone is getting bailed out except for the common wo/man. The one thing that surprises me is that many of the people I am hearing from come from magickal traditions, and identify as Wiccans, Magicians, Rootworkers, etc....As magickal practitioners, you would think that they would have been doing some type of ongoing prosperity work so that they would not get behind in their bills, and have enough money to pursue their interests. So with that in mind, here are some easy low-cost money drawing spells that you can perform to help bring prosperity and increase into your life.RED ONION FOR MONEY
Burn the skin of a red onion to draw luck and prosperity into your home. Lore dictates that the onion should be stolen to do you any good, but it never hurts to do this with one you've paid for.MONEY TALISMAN
Print the Second Pentacle of Jupiter out on your computer. Write your name on its reverse three times, then cross and cover this with the word Prosperity
. Finally, write the statement Money Come to Me, over and over around this forming a perfect circle. Blow a little powdered sugar (known to some as Drawing Powder) over the talisman, fold it towards yourself three times and keep this in your wallet or purse to draw money and peace of mind. If you desire you can make a second talisman is this manner and keep it in your check register. If you don't have drawing powder, again, use cinnamon powder. TRAINED HUNTING MONEY
One common complaint that I am hearing is that "I want to do such and such, but I don't have the money." My advice to these people is while you're waiting to save money, why not train the money you DO have to go out and get more money for you. The technique of training hunting money was first introduced to me by Cat Yronwode through her Lucky Mojo website, where it is part of her online book "Hoodoo in Thory and Practice." Her directions for training your money can be found atthe page titled "Money Drawing": http://www.luckymojo.com/moneydrawing.htmlNEW MOON MONEY RITUAL
You Will Need:
appx. 14 Tea Lights
1 dram bottle
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
10.5 X 7 inch Pyrex Dish
Sand (graveyard dirt, dirt from a successful business, a bank, or even uncooked rice)
pen & paperDirections:
Perform this working when the moon is New. Break off a few pieces of the cinnamon stick and place this in the dram bottle, add some cinnamon powder, then fill the bottle with olive oil. As you prepare the oil, pray over the oil saying something such as Heavenly Father, may your power work through this oil to crush the mountains that block my path and set my feet on the path to prosperity, may it increase the fruit of my good work, bring about wealth and bless it. In Jesus' name. Amen"
On a piece of brown paper torn on all four sides by hand, write your own name three times, then cross and cover this with the words "Prosperity is Mine!"
Anoint the four corners and center of the paper with oil, then fold the paper towards you three times, turning it clockwise between each fold and then set the paper aside for now.
Spread out the sand (or dirt) in the Pyrex dish so that it is approximately 1/4 of the way full and level. Place your petition paper under the Pyrex dish and arrange the 14 tea lights in the dish. Remove the tea light from it's little tin cup and carve the words prosperity around the candle. Put nine drops of the cinnamon oil in the bottom of the tin cup and replace the candle. Do this for all 14 candles.
Light the first candle and incense then focusing on your desire, pray from the heart for prosperity and increase in your life. Alternately, you can pray the 23rd Psalm. Let the candle burn out on it's own. The following night and each night thereafter as the moon grows, burn one of the tea lights and repeat your prayer; burning your last candle on the first night of the full moon (which will be about 14 days).
When the moon is New again, repeat your ritual. Note: All of the materials called for in this spell can be obtained with reasonable cost. A 50 count bag of tea lights can be purchased fairly cheap for as little as $2.50. Many people already have cinnamon in their spice rack and olive oil (or some kind of vegetable oil) in their pantry. If you don't have cinnamon yourself, surely you can borrow some from a neighbor. If you don't have or don't wish to use the Pyrex dish, you can prepare one candle each night and burn it on an overturned saucer. In addition, you can use dirt from the grave of a rich man in place of the sand, or dirt from a thriving business or a bank, or uncooked rice.MAKING A MONEY BAG
To perform this spell you will have to begin by taking a trip to a business which is known to be successful and consistently turns a profit. This can include a bank, a grocery, or even a franchise in a national chain of businesses. Take a dollar bill to the place that you choose and ask the cashier for 10 dimes. Now before you leave the establishment, you must leave one of the dimes behind somewhere. When I performed this spell, I walked outside and pushed the dime into the ground outside the business.
When you are ready to perform your spell, take the nine dimes and arrange them so that they form an equal armed cross. Take a piece of paper and write your name on it nine times, then cross and cover this with the affirmation Prosperity is mine and draw dollar signs in the four corners. Anoint the four corners and center of the paper with your cinnamon oil. Fold the paper towards you three times, rotating it clockwise between each fold.
Place one candle in each of the four "corners" that formed by the dimes and in the center place the petition paper. Anoint the four candles with your cinnamon oil. Take a cinnamon stick, a ginger root, and one whole nutmeg and anoint them with your oil as well then place them on top of the petition in the center of the cross of dimes.
Light the four candles and make your prayer or petition for money and prosperity. When the candles have burned out, collect the nine dimes, the petition, the Cinnamon Stick, Ginger Root and Whole Nutmeg and place this all in a green mojo bag. Anoint the bag with money drawing oil as well.SHARING THE WEALTH
Many spiritual practitioners believe that to receive, one must give. For this reason they will often sacrifice a certain amount of their own money by donating it to a random stranger (usually someone who appears to be in dire need), or a worthy cause. This is done without any expectation of receiving anything in return, but given freely with the knowledge that as you bless others, so will you be blessed yourself.PITFALLS IN MONEY MAGICK
Some people have a tendency to believe that when it comes to money magick that it is a once and done thing. They will do their working, have an initial success and then believing that the money will continue coming in they don't continue their efforts. It is important to remember to continue your work even in the good times so that your money luck doesn't dry up.CONCLUSION
These workings were designed to be fairly easy to perform with materials that can be obtained with little effort at a reasonable cost, even for the individual who is on a tight budget. When you begin to reap the rewards of your efforts you may wish to invest in a wider array of supplies, materials, and/or curios that are more traditional and which can all be purchased through Lucky Mojo. However, I would caution you not to rely on magick alone to bring about prosperity and increase in your life. Let your magick work in tandem with making wise choices when it concerns your money.
