October 31st, is known as Halloween, but also as Samhain, the Celtic start of the winter season. A time when fires were lit to help wandering spirits find their way when the veil was thin between the worlds of living and dead.  This time of year is also celebrated by Witches as a celebration of a  New Year!  And what better time than to cast some spells.

Without further ado, here are 5 spells you can cast between now and October 31st.

Use Halloween To Overcome Your Fears

(adapted from tesswhitehurst.com)

Yes, you really can cast a spell to overcome your fears. And what better time?  The start of the Witches New Year, but also a time when so many of us are in the Halloween spirit of freights and spooks.

What you’ll need.

Something that represents your fear/fears. Use your intuition. This doesn’t have to be literal, but can be something symbolic.

Chrysanthemums

4 White Candles & matches/lighter.

Start by cleansing your space.  This may be with intention or with a physical act like smudging.

In spell work, we often set our candles out to represent compass points.  You’re going to do this now, placing each candle in a corresponding direction. West, East, South, & North.  Set these around yourself in a circle.  Light your candles from East to North (in a clockwise direction). Take your Chrysanthemums and while moving in this same clockwise direction scatter the blossoms. While doing this call onto the Divine, Mother Earth or whatever spiritual entity you worship in whatever way feels powerful to you. Explain your fear, what it is, how it negatively impacts your life, and why you are ready to let go and overcome that fear. Thank your Divine for helping transform your fear.

When ready, take the item that represents your fear and feel the power of the transformation as you no longer fear, but instead are powerful over the fear.

 Face east and chant this spell.

I am no longer fearful, but fearsome. I throw off the burden of fear and I am now purged and purified by the element of air.

Face north and say:

I am no longer fearful, but fearsome. I throw off the burden of fear and I am now purged and purified by the element of earth.

Face west and say:

I am no longer fearful, but fearsome. I throw off the burden of fear and I am now purged and purified by the element of water.

Face south and say:

I am no longer fearful, but fearsome. I throw off the burden of fear and I am now purged and purified by the element of fire.

Face east again and say:

I am free, I am powerful, I am courageous, I am strong. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. Blessed be. And so it is.

Extinguish your candles in the order you lit them.
