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."

Prompt Prosperity: Quick Money Magic

We all have unexpected expenses that come out of the blue- car repairs, medical bills or helping a loved one in need. I had the latter with my family and had to reach deep into my coffers to heed the call.  When you need to quickly recover financially, this coin spell will fill the bill, literally.

Gather together:

13 coins of different denominations


A green or gold jar with a lid

3 Gold (or yellow) candles

3 yellow or gold-colored crystals such as tiger’s eye, amber, citrine, yellow jade or another favorite of yours

Frankincense or myrrh incense

3 pieces of golden fruit such as yellow apples, oranges or other yellow or gold-colored fruit

On the evening of a new moon or a waxing moon phase when the moon is increasing, make a quickie temporary altar where you pay your bills and handle your money- maybe it is your desk or perhaps,  the kitchen table. Use your athame to create the circle of magic at this soon-to-be sacred space.  Place the candles, incense, crystals and fruit there and arrange them so a crystal, apple and candle are each in a group.  Light your candles and the incense. Take the coins in your hands and pass over the incense smoke. Place the coins in the jar. Now take the crystals in your hand and pass through the smoke, then place in the jar and seal.  Pick up one piece of fruit at a time and touch to your third eye (in the middle of your forehead). Pray aloud:

This offering I make as my blessing to all,

Comfort and earthly gifts upon us shall fall.

Fill my coffers with silver and gold.

In this time of great need,  I will be bold.

For the good of all, young and old.

Fill my coffers with silver and gold.

And so it is.

When you go to sleep, dream of everyone you love, including yourself, receiving a harvest of material and spiritual wealth.
