Lucky Bag spell

 Bringing good fortune

This spell uses a Lucky Bag-a collection of magical ingredients gathered together in a drawstring pouch-to contain all the luck you would wish for yourself and your home. The idea that you can "catch" and hold onto luck comes from a very long tradition. Corn dollies, for example, were originally woven to catch the spirit of the cornfield, so that it would return to bless the fields the next year. Likewise, the use of a pouch containing magical items dates back hundreds of years! The Lucky Bag should be purple-the color that symbolizes Jupiter, the planet of generosity and good fortune. 

This spell requires a number of ingredients that symbolize luck in different areas of your life. They include a nutmeg for good health, a coin for wealth, a rosebud for happiness, and rosemary for protection. These four "lucks" are placed inside a satin drawstring bag, which is hung over your front door. As long as the Lucky Bag remains there, you will be assured of good fortune and of the four "lucks" contained within. If you move, take your Lucky Bag with you and cast the spell again, using fresh ingredients, to let the four "lucks" know where you now live. 

Cast this spell on a waxing moon, to attract luck, and on a Thursday, the day of Jupiter. 

What you need:

  • One purple candle, approximately 6 inches / 15 cm in length, placed in a secure holder . 
  • One saucer of spring water 
  • One saucer of salt 
  • One small bunch of dried sage leaves
  • One fireproof dish 
  • Matches or a lighter
  • One whole nutmeg 
  • One highly polished coin, any denomination 
  • One fresh rosebud, any color 
  • One sprig of fresh rosemary 
  • One purple satin drawstring bag, approximately 2 inches / 5 cm square 
  • Hammer 
  • One 1 inch / 2 cm masonry nail 

What to do:

  • Place all the ingredients in the room in which you will be working, with the candle, water, salt, and sage on the table. 
  • Visualize a circle of dazzling white light encompassing yourself and the table. 
  • Light the sage, blowout the flames, place in fireproof dish, and allow it to smolder. 
  • Light the candle, saying aloud: Jupiter, ruler of fortune, Set my luck waxing with the Moon, Smile upon these fortunes four, Let good luck enter through my door. 
  • Take the nutmeg and, holding it before the candle, say aloud: This is the health of all who dwell here between turf and roof 
  • Pass the nutmeg through the sage smoke, saying: I bless you by Air. 
  • Dip it in the salt, saying: I bless you by Earth. 
  • Dip it in the water, saying: I bless you by Water. 
  • Hold it above the candle flame, saying: I bless you by Fire. 
  • Repeat this process with the coin, rosebud, and rosemary, naming them respectively as Wealth, Happiness, and Protection. 
  • When you have named the four "lucks," place them in the bag and tie it tightly, saying: As I hold you and cherish you, Cherish you and hold you me, By Jupiter, so mote it be. 
  • Carry the bag to your front door, envisaging as you do so the circle of light moving with you and shrinking, until it surrounds only the bag. 
  • Nail the bag to the wall above your front door and keep it there for as long as you live between the turf and the roof!  

You are done!
