The Rose Of Love


Casting Instructions for ‘The Rose Of Love’

The night before casting this spell, find out the time at which the sun rises the following morning, and just before you go to bed put the rose on your altar with a red candle on either side of it. Set your alarm to a few minutes before sunrise.

When you wake up, take the rose outside, face the dawn (or if you live in a flat, stand before an open window facing east) and say:

“As red is the colour of true love
And rose it’s flower,
Let true love come to me.
And it harm none, so be it”

Return the rose to it’s placeon the altar and light the two candles. Focus on the flames for a moment or two, trying to visualize love warming the hert of the one you want. When the candles burn down, use the flames of the dying candles to light replacements until the rose has faded. When it is dead, extinguish the candles either by snuffing them with your fingers or with a candle snuffer and bury the dead rose. As it rots in the ground, love will be kindled in the heart of your chosen one and he or she will come to pay court.

You will need the following items for this spell:
  • A fresh, fragrant red rose
  • Several red candles
