Hey! So today is Monday and the Moon is waxing so it feels like a great time to start another 7 day spell.
I’ve been thinking about how I can keep adding more ritual to my spell work because I just LOVE the casting of magick and I feel like I want to prolong the experience. Recently I’ve been calling quarters more often for my spells and now I’m going to take it one step further.
I’m going to use a mortar and pestle to charge some of my spell components. Well, you know how you write down say… 7 reasons you need something for a 7 day spell : on paper? Well when I woke up I had a great idea. I could cut those 7 reasons into paper strips and individually empower them and the spell each night by placing them inside the mortar and pestle set that I have.
My plan is to carry out the spell as normal, but after the meditation, cut the paper strip off the list and place it inside the mortar. I will then wave the pestle like a wand over it and say:
“This is my desire so shall it be,
Hear my will so mote it be.”
Then I’m going to leave the paper strip in the mortar with the pestle overnight and then place it into one of my spell storage chests the next day when I get up. (I like to keep a lot of my spell papers and stuff).
Anyway, just thought I’d share. I’d love to hear what the rest of the coven thinks of this idea. Also if anyone has any ideas on adding even more ritual I’d love to hear them.
