5 Powerful Spells for Beginner Witches

If you're a beginner witch, you're probably eager to start casting your first spells. However, you may have heard that it's really easy for spells to go terribly wrong and you're scared to mess up. We get it! That's why we love to teach witchcraft for beginners. If you're more of an advanced witch, you may still benefit from casting one of these simple spells.

Please note that if you're sober, you can still make the Auric Sprays without the alcohol. They will last for around a month instead of years, but they will be just as effective. Make sure to dispose of them properly. Bacteria can develop inside if you don't include vodka or vinegar. 

1. Auric Spray for Abundance

Best phase of the moon to make this spell during: New moon and/or moon in Taurus

You'll need:

  • Spray bottle
  • Jade tumble or raw piece
  • Dill
  • Bay leaves
  • Water
  • Vodka or Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Ginger Essential Oil
  • Plastic wrap
  • Large glass container

Instructions:

  1. Cleanse your Jade piece by exposing it to some incense smoke or putting it in a bowl with raw rice. Then, place it on a windowsill or garden during the morning or early afternoon to charge it with sunlight. Don't skip this step, sunlight is very abundant.
  2. Sit with your Jade piece and do a grounding guided meditation while holding it in your hands. Once you are done, play an abundant sound that resonates with youConcentrate on your intent to impregnate the stone with it.
  3. Pour water in your glass container and put your Jade piece inside. Since you are not going to ingest this water, this time it doesn't matter if the crystal makes direct contact with the water. This step is what makes the spray not safe for drinking.
  4. Cover the container with plastic wrap and expose it to sunlight again for at least four hours. (Quick tip: Don't mix sunlight with moonlight.)
  5. Cleanse your spray bottle with warm soapy water and then with incense.
  6. Once the crystal water is done, put some Dill and some Bay leaves at the bottom of your spray bottle. Then, pour the crystal water until you fill 40 to 50% of the bottle. Fill up the rest with the vodka or vinegar. Finally, put five to seven drops of ginger essential oil into the spray bottle and put the top on.
  7. Grab a hardback book and gently but firmly tap the bottle against it to activate the spell.
  8. Spray right above your shoulders and your head. In my experience, you'll start to see results within one week of daily use. You can also spray it in your work area to attract more business and clients, or even a promotion and salary increase. 

2. Simple Protection Spell

Best phase of the moon to make this spell during: Full Moon, Dark Moon, or Moon in Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces, but you can also do it whenever it is needed

You'll need:

  • Your choice of either Pink Himalayan Salt, Marine Salt, or raw rice
  • White candle
  • Candle holder
  • Matches
  • Your choice of oil, if you don't know which one to use, you can use Olive Oil
  • One of these herbs: crushed up garlic (garlic powder from your kitchen pantry works), crushed dried up lemon peels, Rosemary, Rue, and/or Lavender
  • Glass plate

Instructions:

  1. Cleanse your candle with running water from the tap. Be careful not to get the wick wet. Pat it with a paper towel from the bottom to the top to remove any excesses of water.
  2. With the back of a match, carve your full name and date of birth on the candle. If you want, you can also carve protective symbols like the Algiz rune, the Pentacle, or a protective sigil you know. Breathe in while concentrating on your intention and breathe out on the candle so it gets to know your energy.
  3. Put some of the oil on your fingers and put it on the candle from the tip to the base imagining a protective light coming down from above to you. Put your herb(s) on the plate in a small quantity to avoid this becoming a fire hazard (a small pinch of each is enough). Roll your candle on the plate so the herb(s) stick to it.
  4. Light a match and expose the bottom of the candle to the fire so it melts a bit, then place it securely on the candle holder. Surround the candle holder in a circle of salt or rice.
  5. Light the candle and snap your fingers three times to activate the spell. Say “I light this candle to thank my guides for the protection they give them. I trust them to protect me from any danger coming my way.”
