New Year’s Spell

By Gerina Dunwich


To ensure that your life is blessed with good luck through the next twelve months, perform this simple spell at midnight on New Year’s Eve.  First, open every door and window of your house to allow the spirit of the old year to depart.  Go outside and light a green candle that has been anointed with a few drops of cinnamon, cypress, or lotus oil, and, without uttering a single word, reenter your house through the backdoor.  Walk through every room with the candle in your hand, go back outside through the front door and then in again by the back.  Additionally, you may place a silver coin, a piece of coal, and a piece of bread on a windowsill or porch at midnight on New Year’s Eve, and then bring them into the house after you rise from bed on New Year’s morning.
