Domino Luck Spell

The beauty of pop culture magick is that inspiration can come from anywhere.  Any movie you watch, book you read, or gif you scroll past can end up giving you the perfect magickal mechanism for your next spell.  Just yesterday I was watching Deadpool 2 and though to myself, “Wow, Domino would be awesome to work with in a luck spell.”  So I did.

For those of you who have not enjoyed the absurd awesomeness that is Deadpool 2 or read the comics, let me introduce you to Domino.  She is a kick-ass mutant with the power to alter probability to work in her favor and against her opponents.  Basically, she’s lucky.  Very lucky.  That luck allows her to always be in the right place at the right time and for virtually every situation to work out in her favor.  Who better to work with in a luck spell?

There are two important things that pop culture magick can add to a working: 1) personal connection, and 2) added power.  For many people our connection to our favorite pop culture stories and characters is far stronger than our connection to ancient myths or centuries old practices.  Our personal energies are already deeply entwined with our favorite media, so using it in magick links that magick to us even more deeply.  Further, pop culture is something we live immersed in every day.  By adding it to a spell we bring the resonance of that spell into the currents of our everyday lives, so the magicky doesn’t have as far to go to be effective.  It also taps into the vast energetic reserve of fandoms and links that energy to our intent.  Pop culture magick helps our workings to resonate more deeply with our personal energies, allows for greater energetic efficiency, and adds power.

For this spell I chose to modify an existing sweetening spell that I already do each week.  Sweetening spells are part of the Hoodoo and Southern conjure traditions, designed to bring ease, good fortune, and lessen obstacles in a given situation.  For my original spell I would, each Sunday:

  • Put a small jar of honey (used exclusively for this weekly spell) on my altar
  • Take a small taste of the honey and say, “As this honey is sweet, so shall the world be sweet to me.”
  • Light a yellow or gold chime candle and place it on the lid of the honey jar and let it burn until naturally extinguished.


Altering my traditional spell into a pop culture spell was just a matter of changing my incantation and adding a simulacrum of Domino in the form of a Funko Pop figure.  My new incantation is, “Domino, Lady of Luck, bring me good fortune.  Guide me to make good choices and to be in the right place at the right time.  Eliminate all obstacles in my path.  As probability is sweet to you, so shall it be sweet to me.”  The rest of the spell is unchanged.

A few simple alterations and additions can turn just about any traditional spell into pop culture magick.  By adding pop culture that is personally meaningful you can strengthen your connection to a spell as well as adding power.  Always be open to the possibility of magickal inspiration and you will find what you need.
