Speech Bubbles Spell

Promoting communication at the table

A lot of communication happens over food: a glance at the way that a family or group of roommates behave when sharing a meal often tells you all you need to know about what is going on in that household! Thankfully, it is less common nowadays to observe rules of "silence when eating," and for some people meals are the main time when family or house matters are discussed. Smooth communication in the dining room is, therefore, a matter of key importance in the general exchange of information, ideas, and interpersonal contact throughout the house. A little bit of magic to improve the flow of conversation is what this spell is all about. In magic, Air is seen as the element of all forms of communication. It is thus associated because, physically, vibrations that travel through the air create sound, and of course we have to draw breath in order to speak. There is also a historical connection: the feathers used for quill pens in the past were derived from birds, whose home element is the Air. Air is used in this spell to produce bubbles, which carry your wishes, then burst, releasing the magic to do its work. 

Try this spell on a Wednesday, the day of the communications planet Mercury, and on a waxing moon to increase the power of communication in the home. 

What you need...

  • One yellow candle, approximately 6 inches / 15 cm in length, placed in a secure holder. 
  • Matches or a lighter 
  • One tablespoon of water. 
  • Three drops of pine essential oil 
  •  One oil burner with a tea light or votive 
  • One bottle of soap bubbles, complete with a wand 
  • Three sycamore "keys" (seeds) that have fallen naturally from the tree 

What to do...

  • Place all the ingredients in the center of the dining table. 
  • Light the candle, saying: Element of Air Bless all who gather here With bright conversation And the ability to listen. 
  • Place the water and essential oil in the bowl of the oil burner and light the tea light or votive. 
  • Open t he bottle of soap bubbles and, moving clockwise (deosil or sunwise) around the room, create a circle of power by blowing bubbles through the wand allover the room. 
  • Take the sycamore keys and hold them above the oil burner, saying: Seeds that have traveled through the air, Containing the knowledge of the trees, Unlock the magic that is carried, On the Air and in the breeze. Then place them in the bowl of the oil burner. 
  • Standing in the center of the room, close your eyes and picture in your mind's eye friends and family gathered around the dining table having enjoyable conversations. 
  • Taking a deep breath, blow showers of bubbles into the air three times, imagining those images into the bubbles. 
  • Put out the candle and allow the essential oil to scent the whole room. 
  • Burn the yellow candle a little at sundown on each subsequent day until the Full Moon, when you should allow it to burn down completely  

 You are done.  Blessed Be.
