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."

Cleopatra’s Secret

To strengthen the closeness between you and your lover, plan a special evening on the next full moon. It is said this Eastern wisdom mixture may well have been used by Cleopatra when she and Mark Antony made mad love on the banks of the Nile. Gather these on the full moon:

  • 1 part amber
  • 1 part sandalwood
  • 1 part frankincense
  • Gardenia oil

Mix the amber, sandalwood, and frankincense, and then add four generous drops of the gardenia oil and grind the mixture together.

You should remove your lover’s clothes and walk around him or her holding the smoking incense bowl to bless his or her physical body. Then he or she should remove your clothes and circle you, in your full glory, with the incense.

Now, speak the following full moon blessing together. Or you can do it before your lover arrives, if you prefer, but the spell is more powerful with both of your intentions intertwined.

With every word, I draw you closer to me.
With every breath, I do you embrace.
Tonight, we bind our hearts. 
Tonight, we twine our bodies.
So mote it be.

Place the incense beside your bed and sit in a relaxed position facing each other, eyes open. With the lightest possible touch, brush your finger on his or her skin, starting with the face and working your way down. Go very slowly. It should take at least a half hour each for this Tantric Touch spell. Then you should please each other with your hands while still looking into each other’s eyes. At this point, anything can happen—and should!
