Earthy Prosperity Tarot Spell:
I just couldn't let this opportunity of a moon sign of Taurus in a waxing moon phase on Thor's Day go by without casting a prosperity rite. So I did this one morning in my eastward facing window. This comes from Ms Dugan's "Book of Witchery".. She says: "If possible, work this prosperity outdoors. You will be calling on the element of earth and all of its fertile and abundant energies. (Well, seeing there is about six inches of snow on the ground and the temps this morning are near zero I opted for setting up this spell indoors, on my window sill with the window open. And believe me the air coming in the window is COLD!) If weather prohibits you from being outside, then set this up your work area facing north (ok, so my window sill faces northeast), because the northern direction is associated with the element of earth.
* A green votive candle
*A votive-cup candle holder
* 1/2 cup garden soil (you can use potting soil)
* A saucer or small plate to hold the soil
* The following tarot cards: Ace of Pentacles, Nine of Pentacles and Ten of Pentacles
(please note: suits of Coins and Pentacles are the same thing)
* A lighter or matches
* A safe, flat surface on which to set up the spell
Place the green votive candle inside the cup. Snuggle the votive cup securely down into the soil. Arrange the cards next to the dish that holds the soil and candle. Take a few moments to center yourself.
When you feel ready, light the candle, and speak the following spell three times.
"Element of earth I call, ground and strengthen me tonight
May the gods now bless this green spell candle that burns so bright
The Suit of Pentacles and Coins calls for prosperity
They will help to bring health and abundance quickly to me
Now together may all of these elements combine
And create opportunity for wealth at this time."
Close the spell by saying:
"For the good of all, bringing harm to none
By the element of earth, this spell is done!"
Allow the candle to burn until it goes out on its own. If necessary, move the candle to a safe location so it can finish burning, such as a shower stall, inside an unlit fireplace, or in the empty kitchen sink. Never leave a burning candle unattended, especially outdoors.
(I will dispose of the burned out candle and the soil outside in a flower bed near the house foundation.)
