Love Potion Number Nine


Casting Instructions for ‘Love Potion Number Nine’

By the light of 9 pink votive candles, put these nine ingredients into a cauldron (or any metal pot) on the ninth hour of the ninth day of the ninth month of the year. (The ”ninth” hour of the day is 9:00 a.m.) Stir the potion nine times with a wooden spoon, each time reciting the following magical incantation:

”Let the one who drinks this wine
shower me with love divine,
sweet love potion number nine
make his/her love forever mine.”

Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat and let it simmer for nine minutes. Remove the cauldron from the heat and allow the potion to cool off. Blow nine times upon the potion, bless it in the names of nine love-goddesses, (see below) and then strain it through a cheesecloth into a clean container. Cover and refrigerate it until you are ready to serve it to the man or woman from whom you desire love and affection. (Do not allow anyone other than your beloved to look at, touch, or drink the love potion.)
The nine goddesses: Inanna, Ishtar, Astarte, Hathor, Nephthys, Aphrodite, Venus, Freya, Arianrhod.
