Rituals for Prosperity and Luck

Also look in the Candle Magick Section for prosperity rituals.

I have always been taught not to ask for a specific amount of money. If you do a ritual to attract money, ask the Gods to bring you the money you need in a way that harms none. You don't want your uncle to die if he has left you money in his will! I have never personally known of this happening but I have read examples of this in books.

To Obtain Money...- from Celtic Magic by D. J. Conway
 Done During the Full Moon...

  Fill your cauldron half full of water and drop a silver coin
 into it. Position the cauldron so that the light from the moon
 shines into the water. Gently sweep your
 hands just above the surface, symbolically gathering the Moon's

                      While doing this say...

                 "Lovely Lady of the Moon, bring to me your
                  wealth right soon. Fill my hands with silver
                  and gold. All you give, my purse can hold."

 Repeat this three times. When finished, pour the water upon the

Money, Money Spell... This spell I made my own version... and it works quite well! This may be done at any time, but preferably at the same time each day or night. You will need a Green Candle and a White Candle. The Green candle represents the money, and the white candle represents you. Make sure you annoint the candles with oil first, thinking of your desire for money to come to you. Set the candles on your alter or table 9 inches apart. After doing this say... "Money, money come to me In abundance three times three May I be enriched in the best of ways Harming none on its way This I accept, so mote it be Bring me money three times three!" Repeat this for nine days. Each day move the white candle one inch closer to the green candle. When the candles touch, your spell is finished. Make sure you visualize the money pouring in from the universe.

Coltsfoot Wealth Spell... For wealth and prosperity for a year, take the husk from an ear of corn and put a dollar bill along with a note written on parchment, "Oh, dear god of luck, money is like muck, not good except it be spread. Spread some here at--------------(write in your address). Thanks be to thee. Amen." Sign your name. Sprinkle the dollar bill and note with coltsfoot leaves. Roll the husk up and tie together with green string or ribbon. Hang the token up above the entryway with green cord. That husk should bring riches into your home or business by the bushel.

EMPLOYMENT SPELL (adapted from "Everyday Magic" by Dorothy Morrison) Supplies: green candle, pen, bayberry, bergamot or pine oil, 1 dollar bill, paper with amount you wish to earn written on it. Gather the spell materials together on the first night of the new Moon. Write your desired type of employment on the candle and below it, draw an arrow pointing down. Draw a dollar sign beneath the arrow. Below that,draw another arrow pointing down, then write your name under it (on the candle). Anoint the candle, while concentrating on your need for employment. Write the amount you wish to earn on a piece of paper (already prepared). Place this paper under the candle. Light the candle and visualize your getting the job you want (or getting a job in the field you want). Chant the following: "From you to me the money flows, casting out financial woes. The employment I want will be approved before the light of the next full Moon" Let the candle burn down completely. Wrap the wick and any wax remnants in a dollar bill and carry it with you. Look for a job on Wednesday before the full moon. (of course you can look all during the waxing cycle, but don't be surprised if you get THAT job on a Wednesday!) ------------------------------------------------------------- EMPLOYMENT SPELL (from Spinning Spells, Weaving Wonders, by Patricia Telesco) (slightly adapted by Lady SilverStarr) General Uses: Finding work, improved prosperity, job security, peace with one's work placement Timing: Moon in Virgo. Spring and summer when foliage is lush and green Sunday afternoons (when want ads come out for the following week) Month of April. (My adaptation for this time of year would be to visualize the falling leaves as little bits of prosperity "falling" into your life, bringing opportunities to you. The moon in Jupiter would be good as well since it rules money issues. But certainly do this during the waxing cycle of the moon) Props/Focals: Basil, chamomile, ginger, clove, dill, oats, peas, almond and other herbs or foods of abundance. Tin for luck. The numbers 4, 6, and 13. Your first earned dollar bill. Want ads and business cards. Lively green hues for prosperity, or orange for a successful harvest from your efforts. Sample Spells: Cut out the want ads that appeal to you most. Clip four, six, or thirteen of them, making notes to use later for your calls. Next, tie these together with a long string. To this bundle attach a silver coin or piece of tin, then place it across the table from you. Burn a green candle rubbed with ginger (energy and prosperity) and visualize getting a call from a prospective employer. As this vision becomes clear in your mind, draw the string and bundle towards you, saying, "My goal is sure, My need is strong, help me find where I belong. To meet my needs, employment I seek, bring me success by the end of the week." When the paper reaches your hand, keep the tin to carry, then set the paper aflame. This releases the energy before inquiries begin. Success with this spell includes getting solid leads, landing interviews and receiving callbacks. _________________________________________________________________

JOB SPELL This is best begun on the night of the New Moon:Use an astral candle for yourself - your colorA brown candle for the job itselfA green candle for prosperityBurn a prosperity incense and annoint the candles with a prosperity oil - I would use cinnamon. Annoint from wick to end. These candles should be in a safe place, they have to burn out entirely. Place the brown candle in the center, the green on the right, and the astral on the left.Light the astral : I ask for change,that is my right, open the way, clear my sight.Light the green :Good luck is mine and prosperity, help me Great Ones, come to me.Light the brown :Opportunity, work, rewards I see, And as I will So Mote it Be.Say the above as you light the candles. Leave these to burn out completely and dispose of the wax afterwards. Each night, for a week, or until the candle is used up, light a second brown candle for 9 minutes while meditating and gaining balance in preparation for the job and the good to come. During this time period, Actively seek a job. Listen to your intuition and follow up on all leads.

A Charm to Secure Employment (Matthew Green): Take a green handkerchief or a piece of green cloth roughly that size, lay it flat with one of the corners facing you. Place upon it 3 cardamom seed, a bay leaf and a sprig rosemary (or 1ts of dried herb). These herbs surround you in self-confidence and attract energy. Cardamom sweetens your personality and brings out your natural eloquence. Bay leaves are symbols of success and triumph. Rosemary is a herb of achievement and mental alertness. Tie the corners together with a length of string, so that you have a little bundle of herbs. Before each interview, hold this bundle and visualize yourself walking into the interview room, radiating confidence imagine yourself being in a position to pick and chose jobs at will. Carry this to your job interviews. And accept that any rejection is a sign from the universe that the job was not right for you.
Found Fortunes (Patricia Telesco): Anything you find is lucky. When you find your lucky item, say these words: "See a …(item)…., pick it up! All the day, I’ll have good luck. And when trouble might come my way This little …(item)… will bless my day."
Candle Wax Lucky Charm (Patricia Telesco): Take a green candle; dip it into some orange juice then light it. Jump over the candle saying: "Morae, you who weave the strands of fate, Change my luck, ill fortune abate!" Keep a piece of melted wax in your pocket. Etch a symbol into the wax (such as a sun or any other symbol, which you find lucky, or one that appeals to you).
Parsley Wealth Spell (Patricia Telesco): Place parsley in your wallet and say this 9 times: "Less goes out than goes in; Erzulie’s magic here begins; Prosperity within remains and grows To ease my cash flow woes."

from Celtic Magic by DJ Conway

The full moon is associated with money, prosperity and sucess in nearly every folk tale around the world. The following spell is best performed during the waxing Moon or on the Full Moon. You will need a small cauldron, a small green or brown talisman bag, and three silver coins. Place a little dish or cup inside the cauldron with a small amount of cinamon and cedar chips on it. Lay three coins on your altar. Tap each coin with your forefinger of your power hand (the one you write with) and chant: Glistening silver coin of the moon, Shiny and round, bring me a boon. Draw to my hands many more your kind. Multiply, grow, like the image in my mind. Put the coins in the cauldron with the herbs. Using your power hand, stir the air clockwise seven times over the cauldron. Chant: Earth elementals, cunning and bright, Share your treasures here on this night, Share with me riches of silver and gold, Sucess prosperity, all I can hold. Place the herbs and the coins in the talisman bag. Cary this with you until the Moon goes through Her phases and returns to Full.
