Work this spell on the day or the day before Beltane to charge your spirit with the energy and motivation needed to start something new.
You will need:
- a piece of paper and a pen
- a cauldron or cooking pot
- 5 twigs, preferably from 5 different species of trees like: oak, rowan, elder, hazel and willow. You can also use photos of 5 different kinds of trees
On your main piece of paper, draw a pentacle: a five pointed star within a circle, with the fifth point to the north or top of the circle. Write the magic elemental words between each of the points as follows:
To left of the top point, "spirit."
To the right of the top point, "Air."
Above the bottom right point, "fire."
Between the two bottom points,
"Earth." Above the Bottom left point, "water."
Now place the five twigs into the cauldron or cooking pot and with an imaginary wand, encircle the cauldron five times and say,
"Five woods into the cauldron go
Burn them fast and burn them slow.
When the wheel begins to turn
Soon the Beltane fires will burn.
Where the rippling waters go
Cast a stone, the truth you'll know.
Those Eight words the Rede fulfill
'An Ye Harm None, Do What Ye Will' "
The spirits of the woods, trees and waters will now be there to help you activate any new enterprise in the coming months.
