The Spell

A Spell to Divine Your Future from a Cup of Tea

First choose some herbs that correspond to your question. For example, if your question is about love, use lemon, rose hips, orange, and/or nutmeg steeped in hot water. Let the ground herbs remain loose in your cup. Concentrate on your question while drinking, until the cup is nearly empty except for the leaves and a minute bit of water.

Next place your strong hand over the top of the cup. Swirl the remaining liquid three times clockwise. Turn the cup onto a saucer and lightly tap on the bottom five times. With each tap, repeat an incantation like "One for vision, two for insight, three for wisdom, four for discernment, come five the spell is free, magic, magic - work for me!"

Now turn the cup back over. See if any patterns emerge in the remaining herbs stuck to the cup. Interpret the patterns according to your question. If you were asking how soon you would find a life mate, for example, and a heart shape appears near the rim of your cup (close to you), this portends someone appearing soon. Images farther away, near the bottom of the cup, indicate longer waiting periods.

You may want to place a few paper towels beneath your saucer before performing this procedure to gather up any dribbles.

General Uses

Oracles, prophesy, prediction, forecasts.


Moon in Pisces. During the full moon. Halloween, May Day (for matters of love). The month of November. Wednesday.

What are Spells?
From a religious standpoint, spells are a means of communicating with deity.
They are prayers to the God and Goddess, to the One, to Spirit, or whatever
form deity takes to each person. From a practical standpoint, spells are a
proven way to manipulate psychic energy to work for specific purposes as
outlined in the details of the particular spell. Like recipes, they are exchanged
and altered to suit the taste of each person who utilizes them. They are
colored by the personalities of the people who work them. Spells can take
many forms; some spells are simply thoughts and meditations. Other magic
spells, like the ones provided here, have many ingredients in them that allow
the practitioner to ease into the mindset of the spell and focus energy on the
desired outcome. The magic of the spell is enhanced and supported by the
physical actions taken, words spoken, herbs carried, incense burned, candles
lit, and many other methods used by Witches to reinforce their Wills.

The stereotype of Witches cursing or hexing people evolved out of fear of
the unknown, and the negative connotations associated with spellcasting
have been perpetuated by religious groups and movies depicting Witches as
evil, devil worshiping, malevolent magic makers. Spells are not necessarily
"Good" or "Evil" in nature. Spells are what you make them! Don't be fooled
by the name of a spell: a "Love Spell" that forces the emotion on an unwilling
person is manipulative, and will surely backfire. The Karmic Rule applies:
spells worked with the permission of everyone involved and for the good of
all bring benefits, while spells of a manipulative nature bring the invested
intent into the life of the person who sought to cause the harm. Love spells,
while seemingly harmless, can actually bend the will of the target. How would
you feel if you were forced to do something against your Will? We advise
that you keep this in mind before attempting manipulative magic on anyone.
