This last week of 2008 was filled with delays and problems, I think
Im glad to see this year end. The topper was that I was one of
the lucky people who were without power on Sunday. Losing power during
the summer isnt too bad, but in the winter its cold! I happen
to have a kerosene heater that really saved the day, without it I would
not have been able to stay here. And candles.....lots of candles. Did
you know candles can heat a small room? I had 4 pillar candles in the
bathroom and they actually raised the temperature from 45 degrees to
about 57 degrees in three hours. Not much but enough to make it bearable
to use the room! I really was lucky as my power came back on Monday
around noon. I did not lose much food and did not deplete my supply
It did put me behind in all things, including this newsletter. I wanted
to send my Date Book/Planner Blessing out last weekend so you could
do it at the dark moon but I guess the Powers That Be think it is better
to do it on New Years. I didnt have a chance until Monday
night to do it but it turned out awesome, if I may so say so myself,
which I just did.
Anyway, I have never used a planner of any kind before even tho I have
several. Being frustrated at the lack of forward motion in my career,
I decided that this is the year to really focus and get moving towards
prosperity. And what do successful people use? A date book/planner.
I have had appointments but never so many that I couldnt remember
them. Well, this year I plan to have so many that I will need to write
them down (how's that for being optimistic?). And to help me
achieve that goal, why not use a little magick? I have done money and
prosperity spells but this time I wanted something different. So why
not bless and/or empower the planner, which symbolizes the upcoming
year, to be filled with opportunities for success. Then it is up to
me to keep the appointments and do the work thus creating a successful
I will give you the Blessing/Spell just as I did it. Of course, feel
free to change it to suit your needs. Maybe your goal this year is a
more active social life, then you would change the colors and scents
to fit that goal. Or maybe you are too busy and want more free time,
then you could use relaxing scents and colors.
When I do spells like this, I do not put my usual element pieces on
the altar (dish of salt, cup of water....), I use the tools of the spell
for my elements. I marked each thing as to what element it is below.
The reason for this is sometimes the altar becomes too cluttered with
all the ingredients for a spell and the usual tools. Do as you seem
Blessing of the Date Book/Planner
to fill it with opportunities
Cleanse date book/planner with sage smudge to clear out all energies
it may have from people handling it before you received it.
Set up altar with:
Money candle (fire), one specifically for money or a green
or gold one. If scented, pine, patchouli, or cinnamon are good
choices. I used our Wealth
& Prosperity gel candle.
Incense (air), again either specifically for drawing money
or a money scent. I used one called Money Draw.
Oil (water) to anoint the date book/planner. I used a
custom money blend I created, I would recommend either patchouli
or pine (cinnamon might stain).
Place cleansed date book/planner in front of where you will be
and surround it with prosperity stones or crystals (earth).
I used four stones: jade, aventurine, malachite, and a lodestone
(which draws things to you).
Place a pen, green preferably, next to the date book/planner.
This is so you can write the spell on a blank page while your
concentration and energy is focused on this goal (spirit).
You can include a candle for your specific deity or for the God
and Goddess if you have one. I have a candle I use whenever I
work with Hecate that I placed next to the W & P gel candle.
Cast as usual. Call upon the God and/or Goddess and light their candle.
Ask them to bless you and the book. Light the money candle and incense.
Pick up the book and pass it through the incense smoke, take your time,
and think about what you want to accomplish in the coming year. I spoke
my goals out loud while opening the book to every page while in the
smoke. Then set the book back in the middle of the stones and pick up
the oil. With a drop of oil, anoint the front and the back of the book,
still visualizing your goals for the coming year. Stand with your hands
over the book and direct your energy into it as you repeat the spell
The New Year begins, a fresh start I possess
I vow to move forward, I will not regress
This book will be filled with opportunities galore
Making this year more prosperous than the year before
Now is the time to write the spell on a blank page in your book. When
done, stand with the book in your hands and repeat the spell again three
times. You may add an ending like by the power of 3x3, as I
say so mote it be.
Thank your God and/or Goddess for their help and close your circle.
You can leave the candle burning if it is safe to do so. If possible,
leave the date book/planner inside the circle of stones overnight.
Below is a picture of my setup for this spell. This image was taken
with my new digital camera, once shrunk for the web it is not so clear.
I may set up again and retake for clarity this weekend.
I hope this spell brings you great success. I will update
throughout the year as to my success. May this year be filled with joy,
happiness, peace, and magick.....
