Current News

We've had some drama and are currently doing some internal housekeeping and rewriting here on Gypsy Magic.

It's going to take a while to get things set right here and I am really sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. I apologize for links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal.

Brotherly and Sisterly Love

To draw children in a family closer, as well as to stop them from bickering, take water from a stream or river. Bring it to a boil on a fire built with fresh twigs. Write the name of each child on a bay leaf and let them simmer together in the water. Ask Venus (The Goddess of Love) to bless them.

Using a pin, inscribe the names of the children on a pink candle and then light the candle, so that its flame may flicker over your spell.

Take a pink, a blue, and a green ribbon. Braid them together, knot the ends, and tie a knot in the middle. The first knot represents will, the second, wisdom, and the third, activity.

Remove the pot from the fire and leave it to cool. Extract the bay leaves. Allow the candle and the fire to burn down.

In the garden or in an unused flower pot, bury the ribbon under the bay leaves. Sprinkle ash from the fire on top, and then plant a rosebush or miniature rose on top of everything. (The rose is a potent ingredient in any love potion.)


As the rose grows, the bond between the children will be strengthened. This spell is also said to work when children from two marriages are brought together.

Break a Streak of Bad Luck

Go for a walk and pick up seven twigs from the ground, one to represent each day of the week. Traditionally, the twigs should be ash for Monday, beech for Tuesday, elm for Wednesday, oak for Thursday, horse chestnut for Friday, yew for Saturday, and elder for Sunday.

Take them home, snap them into pieces, and burn them in the hearth or a bonfire. Say:


Ill luck is broken,
As these words are spoken.

Deter Unwanted Visitors

To avoid being revisited by an unwanted caller, all you need is salt. Immediately after they have made their departure, sprinkle salt, which is regarded as a purifier and a protection against evil forces, on the ground where they said goodbye.
