A Full Moon Love Binding Spell for Commitment, Fidelity & Enduring Relationships

Posted on June 04, 2018 by AUTHOR (edit in theme settings)

Timing can be a key element in any type of magical spell work and working with the phases of the moon can often prove to be extremely fruitful, particularly when it comes to love drawing rituals. There is no question that moon magic serves a vital function in manifesting one’s intentions. In matters relating to love, there are three phases that can amplify the energy of a love spell: a new moon, a waxing moon and a full moon.

Generally, new moons lend themselves to all things that relate to new beginnings. This would be the ideal time to perform any type of spell that involves drawing in a new love interest or rekindling a relationship from the past. As the moon grows into the waxing phase, the emphasis is on growing things you have already begun. This is a great time to work on rituals that focus on deepening commitments and open up new levels of communication. The full moon is when the energy of moon reaches it peak, thus, is the most powerful. Although this phase of the moon can most always be effective for any type of love workings, I always suggest this phase when attempting to perform binding spells between two people.

Now to perform a full moon love binding spell we need to begin with the two most fundamental elements; a representation of you and a representation of your love interest. For this particular spell, you need to create two wax poppets. To create these, you will need to melt down a red or pink candle and form two figure molds from the wax. As a practioner, I would add a number of herbs, oils or even personal concerns to the wax, but this isn’t necessary. You can simply take two small pieces of brown paper bag with your names written on it and work it into your molds (your name would go into your representation and your love interest would be molded into the other one). You will also need to get a single red candle that is anointed with a bit of your favorite conjure oil. If you do not happen to have any conjure oil on you, simply mix some cinnamon, cloves and coriander in a bit of olive oil.  Finally, you will need a long piece of red or blue piece of thread.

To prepare for the ritual, take your two wax poppets and place the red candle between them. Take your string and gently wrap the two figures to the candle. Make sure they are secure enough where they won’t fall from the candle. Tie a knot.  Now here is the important part. Make sure there is plenty of string left. You are going to need this to complete the spell.

To perform your binding spell, wait for the first day of the full moon. Next, on the first night of the full moon, light your candle and visualize your intentions. Then take your extra string and wrap it around the candle and poppets 1 time and say the following:

“I am bound to thee and thee to I. In love to be, I bind you to me.”

Allow the candle to burn a total of 20 minutes.

You will want to perform this for 3 consecutive nights. On the final night, let the candle burn all the way down. Finally, you do not discard any of the leftover wax. You are going to want to keep this until you no longer wish to be bound to this person. Keep it in a safe place.

Leaves of Love, Old Hoodoo Love Spells

Posted on December 30, 2013 by AUTHOR (edit in theme settings)

If you ever get the opportunity to look through the Frank C Brown’s, “Collection of Northern Folklore”, there are countless remedies, superstitions and spells that have their roots in good old fashioned Hoodoo. There are also a number of entries that reflect Germanic traditions as well. There are countless tidbits from dream interpretations, remedies for countless disorders, the times of year to harvest, and good old fashioned superstitions. One of my favorites is that of the Heart shaped leaf and how it can be used as a love drawing charm.

There are countless types of heart shaped leaves. Just look around and you’ll be bound to find them. Or, you can simply stick with the leaves from a lime tree which is personally my favorite. Although I would argue it is not one of the more widely used ingredients in Hoodoo, it still has strong love associations. In fact, this belief largely comes from European folklore with records of its use for love dating back as far as medieval times. The lime tree was once associated to lovers, according to German folklore. In the medieval period, the lime tree was used as a symbol of love. In Pagan times, Lithuania women would perform rituals under its branches in order to increase their fertility and serenity. In Poland, Mother Mary is associated to the Lime tree and it’s a common belief that if you pray to her under the tree your prayers are more likely to be answered.

So, don’t underestimate the power of the Lime and its heart shape leaves. Historically, they serve as a powerful symbol for true love. According to one entry in Frank C Brown’s, “Collection of Northern Folklore” (Vol. VII, pp.574), a woman can win the love of her romantic interest by drying the heart shaped leaves in front of a fire and grinding them into a powder. She is then to take the powder and place it on or in her romantic interest’s clothing. She may also wear some in her bosom to attract many pursuers.  Furthermore, should you find a lime tree (also known as a Linden), make an offering that has significance for you and ask for true love to come your way.

Hair: A Hoodoo & Voodoo Ingredient

Posted on November 26, 2013 by AUTHOR (edit in theme settings)

When one thinks of Hoodoo or Voodoo, there certainly is a reference to the power and use of hair. One common superstition is that one should always take great care in the disposal of both hair and nails in order to prevent any negative spells or conjurations placed upon them. Take for example, the use of the Voodoo doll, particularly dolls created for love matters. Using human hair and/or the finger nails of the intended love interest aids in the creation of a powerful love spell. With such objects voodoo dolls can be created to help one fall in love with another. In Hoodoo jar spells, there is another popular example where one might include the hair of an intended victim mixed with a number of other objects such as vinegar or sulfur which then is buried upon the intended victim's property in order to create sickness or misfortune.


There is certainly plenty of evidence that suggests that using hair, nails and even the bones of someone has strong African influences. Take for example the Congo fetish figure, often created with the bones or hair of one's ancestors mixed with other powerful substances such as minerals and herbs that is adorned on wood carved figures and placed in front of one's home or community. There are countless references to the use of hair in Harry Middleton Hyatt's 5 volume series. “Hoodoo, Conjuration, Witchcraft & Rootwork.”


Throughout the ages, hair has often been seen as indestructible and as is frequently associated to a particular person's character. It's no wonder that it has been a popular ingredient in all types of magical rites, divination and witchcraft. Another powerful example of the use of hair in Voodooism is one of the more powerful and negative curses to cause serious harm or death of an intended victim. In this case, hair and/or a piece of fabric that has touched the intended victims skin is put into a handkerchief with some other eroding ingredients. The belief is that as the items in the handkerchief erode, so will the body and/or mind of the intended victim.


The folklore of hair however, goes beyond Hoodoo, Voodoo and African Sources. It is a tremendously common theme in countless cultures, folklore traditions and mythical stories. One merely has to think of the story of biblical story of Samson who was bequeathed with extra-human power to perform heroic deeds for the Israelites only to discover that when his hair is cut, his powers are lost from him. The Ancient Greek Medusa, had hair of snakes and Rapunzal's hair was her ladder to freedom. Sif, the wife of the Norse God Thor had her hair stolen be Loki, the trickster God. No one was more irate than Thor himself. Out of fear, Loki had the dwarves braid her hair with gold in order to appease him.


I always warn people to take great care when incorporating hair or nail clippings in a particular ritual. You never really know what the consequences might be. If you are a believer in Karma, you may want to leave these ingredients out.
