Earth spells are best for material things like money, abundance and financial prosperity. Other areas that are ruled by elemental earth are fertility, home, grounding, nature and growth. Add the solid power of earth to your magick with these types of spell ingredients:
- Altar tools such as bowls of salt, earth or a pentacle
- Any stones, but particularly aventurine, jet or onyx
- Oils and herbs like patchouli, mugwort, vetivert or cypress
Earth spells often include live plants, burying things in the earth and eating foods. If you’re looking to add some earth energy, try to use these types of things in your spellwork.
Charm of the Oak
This spell is intended as a way to connect to the deep wisdom and knowledge embodied in the oak tree. It’s a more spiritual and somewhat intangible spell than most others. All you need is:
• 4 acorns
• Small bag of brown fabric
• Patchouli oil
• A brown or green candle
Best if you can collect the acorns yourself. Anoint the candle and the acorns with oil, and light the candle. While you hold the acorns in your hands, repeat the following: Sacred oak
Growth and wisdom
Mine indeed Visualize a mighty oak tree, and all the things it may have to teach you. Place the acorns in the bag, and leave it near the candle. Let the candle burn out on its own, and leave the bag somewhere where you will see it every day. Opportunities to gain new knowledge will soon present themselves.
Write these symbols on an egg. They’re in Theban script, and read “ripe”. Go outside and dig a hole in your yard, and bury the egg with the vanilla bean. Make sure it’s deep enough that an animal won’t dig it up. If you don’t have a yard, use a large flower pot filled with earth.
This spell works best if you bury the egg during a waxing moon, though you don’t necessarily have to do it at night. Each night afterwards though, you have to go outside and water the spot so your spell can “grow’.
