The following content is taken from the Tarot spells handout I created for the London Tarot study Group. You can buy the full version of this course in my SHOP page.
Today we will be mainly practising creating spells and what methods we can use. What materials are best used and what Tarot cards we feel are more appropriate (if any specifically since we all have different perceptions).
Below I will list some examples and some spells exercises. For accessories and candles colours:
Red: passion, sexuality, love, attraction;
Reddish brown: fertility, creativity, family love;
Pink: romance, love, friendships;
Orange: creativity, career, vitality;
Yellow: career, studies, communication, creativity;
Blue: healing, clearing, communication;
Purple: healing, spirit communication, heightening psychic powers;
Green: grounding, money, career and luck.
Create an affirmation and pick at least 3 cards for the following:
- Performing a healing spell;
- Performing a clearing spell;
- Performing a “attract love” spell.
Let’s say we are creating a spell to attract a new job. What colour candles/crystals/accessories would you use? If I give you the first card as the Ace of Pentacles what 2 other cards do you think should follow?
As a rule I believe spells should not be performed more than once and at least not until at least 3 months have passed from the first one. Give time for the energies to work, we are not talking creating miracles here but manifesting wishes, desires and goals. No spells should be performed that compels others or are against their wishes (sorry that is just bad karma!). When casting for yourself: be real and be careful what you wish for, it might just manifest. Above all have fun playing with the Universe energies, they will listen!
Sometimes though I get asked why a spell did not work…so I ask the client: is it because it wasn’t for your own good? How exactly did you formulate your wish? (This is really important the same as it is in formulating the right question in a Tarot reading).
Have fun ;)
