ROMANCE ROLLBACK (48:20)
If you’re having trouble finding luck in love, you could always give this ancient Irish love spell a try. The Irish have long been notorious for their magick and spellcasting due to their Celtic heritage, and have a high percentage of Wiccans. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 5 cups of clovers
- 4 cups of salt
- 2 green candles
- 2 white candles
- 2 red candles
- 1 carving utensil
- 1 lighter or match
- 1 piece of paper
- 1 sealable container
- 1 picture of the target lover
- 1 picture of yourself
- 1 piece of string
Draw a circle around you with the salt, laying the clovers on top. Then, carve a heart into all six candles. Carve your initials and a Celtic knot into the GREEN candles. Carve your lover’s initials and date of birth into ONE of the red candles. Then carve YOUR initials and dates of birth into the other red candle.
Light the white candles and chant “The Irish survive and thrive and I call them to thy circle” both times you light a candle.
Light the green candles and chant “The power of the Irish is alive to strive. Bless Thy Circle with the Powers of the Irish Eyes” both times you light a candle
Fold the two photos evenly together
Light the red candles
Wrap the two photos together while chanting “Spin thy heart to thou soul and thy soul to thou heart. With the Irish Eyes Blessed It Be”
Place the wrapped photos into the container, pour the clovers over them, and say “I infuse our bond with the power of the Irish forever!” three times
Meditate for three minutes
Pour the wax of all the candles into the container
Seal the container and keep it until the spell has manifested
