There are many practicing witches and druids in Irish America and Ireland today, who believe in ancient traditions and folk magic. I’ve put together a list of charms and spells that are based on mythical Irish magic.
Love spell — everyone’s favorite magical spell!
On the night of a full moon, walk to a spot beneath your beloved’s bedroom window. Whisper your loves name three times to the night wind (el alder).
The night breeze is believed to have a guardian who is compassionate toward requests from mortals between midnight and 1 am ( commonly known as the witching hour).
Attract good fortune
You will be damn lucky with this one. You will need a candle, some string, and a trinket.
Light the candle and loop the string in through the trinket and tie it. Then start swinging the trinket above the flame and chant:
“A candle flickers, this trinket I pass, good energy and fortune come to me, wealth, knowledge, influence, energy,
By good means come to me, wealth, knowledge, influence, energy,
This trinket I pass into power, to attract to me wealth, knowledge, influence, energy, come to me!”
Repeat this three times, then wear the “necklace” around your neck. The more you do this, the more powerful.
To get someone to call you
Take a piece of parchment or fine quality writing paper and inscribe the name of the target. Write it in a circle twice, so the ends meet. As you do this, concentrate on the person’s face and your desire for them to call you. Then, while still concentrating, put a needle through the center of the circle created by the name. Place the charm by the phone.
The call will come within five minutes, five hours or five days depending on how well the spell was cast and how much will power was used.
A charm for always having money
Take the feather of a black rooster an go to the crossing points of three fairy-paths. While holding the feather and a gold colored coin, call the name of the Goddess Áine three times, to bring you everlasting prosperity.
Bond of trust by hair binding
In ancient Ireland, it was customary for a man to braid a bracelet from his hair and give it to the woman he loved – a gift of trust – knowing what can be done to someone magically if you possess their hair.
The binding is not activated unless she accepts the gift, thus accepting him and agreeing to the spell. This is not a binding that can be imposed on another person without their knowledge.
