Middle Earth Magic: Inspired Ideas and Seasonal Spells for Your Enchanted Life

I grew up on a farm in West Virginia and learned much about herbs, trees, animals, gardening, foraging  and so much about nature. I incorporate this wisdom I learned from elders in my family into my spellwork. When I finally left the farm, I majored in Medieval Studies, my attempt to emulate my idol, J.R.R. Tolkien. All these influences led me to my own blended brew which I call "middle earth magic," containing a mix of the modern and the time-tested "old ways."

Lunar New Year New Love Spell

If you are in a phase of your life where you wish to attract new love, try this Candle Bell Spell two days before the full moon.You will need

pink votive candle


long-stemmed red rose bud

small  hand bell

rose essential oil

Check your lunar almanac and on the first night of the full moon, place the candle on the tray on your altar. Lay the rose bud and bell beside the candle. Anoint the candle with the rose oil. For the next two nights, cup the candle in your hands and direct loving thoughts into its flame for at least 5 minutes. On the last night of the full moon, take a thorn from the rose and carve the name of your heart’s desire into the candles wax, reciting:


I will find true love.

Light the pink candle and ring the bell thrice, saying:

As this candle begins to burn, a lover true will I earn.

As this flame burns ever higher, I will feel my lover’s fire.


Ring the bell three more times and allow the candle to burn for a few minutes while gazing at the flame.  Keep notes in your bedside journal or your Book of Shadows and note how long it takes for true love to walk into your life. It will be interesting to look back and see where it happens, what sign of the moon and sun and all the details that will inform your future magical workings.
