You will need the following items for this spell:
- A red candle (if you want passion)
- A pink candle (if you want romance)
- A red or pink rosebud (according to your choice of candle colour)
- A few drops of water
- A jar (with lid) of clear honey
Remember when casting this spell that it is not directed at another person but at you, making you the centre of their romantic interest. The spell should be cast on a Friday, the day linked to Venus, at a time when the Moon is waxing or Full. As the flower bud you are going to use represents you, make sure you use the most perfectly formed one you can find. And if you are going to pluck one from a rose bush in your garden, do so gently. The spell is usually cast in the name of Aphrodite, goddess of love, but if you have another deity you prefer, feel free to use it. And feel free, too, to decorate your altar with any appropriate charms and talismans, herbs and crystals and to burn incense and a suitable essential oil. If you are on a diet or allergic to honey, this may not be the spell for you. But don't despair - there are others.
Light the candle and say, "I call upon Aphrodite/**** Goddess of Love/****to be with me as I make this magic and that her presence gives me her blessing. And it harm none, so be it."
Hold the rosebud in your power hand and sprinkle the water over it. As you do so say:
"This flower is my romantic allure, I freshen it so it be pure. And it harm none, so be it."
Take the lid off the honey jar and holding the jar gaze into it and visualize yourself and your new lover in a romantic or passionate situation, according to your choice. When you see a strong picture of the two of you together, laughing, obviously in love and relishing each other's company, say:
"As honey to the bee is sweet,May true love sweep me off my feet. And it harm none, so be it."
Still chanting the words, press the flower into the clear honey and when it is right in, replace the lid, saying the last line of the invocation one more time. Now extinguish the candle, and take it to your bedroom along with the honey pot. Put the jar under your bed and leave it there for a complete Moon cycle. Every night, just after the sun has set, light the candle and let it burn for an hour until it has burned right down.
After 28 days, take the honey from under your bed and eat just one spoonful. Continue to do this every night at the same time and by the time the jar is empty you should have attracted a new lover to your side.
