WITCHY WEDNESDAY: LOVE SPELLS
BY KALLAN KENNEDY
Valentine’s Day is soon upon us. Every Witch I know is going to get bombarded with the love spell requests. Jiminy Cricket once said, “A dream is a wish your heart makes.” A spell is very much the same, but with more focus and intent. Like dreams, spells are only good or evil according to the moral compass of the caster. Hence, the reason why most Witches won’t do them.
By ‘them’, I’m talking about spells that manipulate the will of another person. There are all kinds of self-love, beauty, and “attract-love” spells out there. Those are usually ones that a Witch will share. Most of us Witches want you to feel good about you, to find love and happiness in your life, and to be at peace. Now, that’s not to say there aren’t some folks who won’t cater to the lonely hearts club members. I’m not judging. That’s on the caster and his/her ethical code.
I love looking at old spells. I am fascinated by history and human nature. I love to explore the motivations of others and study their creativity. If you’re like me, I highly recommend “The Encyclopedia of 5,000 Spells” by Judika Illes. She really did her research for the book. It’s even now in Kindle format!
My friend Marie Bargas, aka “The Hollywood Witch” was invited to guest blog for the popular “LA-Story.com” site on Love Spells. She’s posted some really popular ones, and always does great research. (Please visit my new site HERE.)

Love spells aren’t inherently bad. The whole idea of “good” and “evil” is relative. At one point in human history, pedophilia was part of the normal culture. At one time, it was okay to murder in the name of one’s god (and in some places, it’s still encouraged!). If you really feel the need to cast a spell (or have someone do it for you) to make someone fall in love with you, that says more about you than them.
I recommend falling in love with you, first. Instead of feeling sorry for yourself that you are “alone” on Valentine’s Day, how about being thrilled that you are alive and that you are someone special who doesn’t need another person to love him/her in order to be complete? It’s true that like attracts like. When you can fully love yourself for all you are, you’ll find that other people want to be around you. They want to bask in your glow. If Valentine’s Day is important to you, then pamper yourself instead. Buy yourself flowers. Write yourself a love poem. Romance you this weekend. That’s the best love spell I can recommend.
