As we move into February, the most romantic day of the year is just around the corner, and that is the loving holiday of Valentine’s Day. Often associated with the energies of passion and romance, for witches, Valentine’s Day is often a day to perform powerful love rituals to help deepen your connection with that special someone. However, there are also plenty of other magical ways you can celebrate Valentine's Day as a single witch that can invite a powerful alternative form of love into your life as well.

With that said, in this article, we’re going to take a different approach to the traditional Valentines Day celebrations of modern-day by focusing on ways you can make the most of it with your partner in a magical sense, as well as some wonderful self-care practices you can do solo to embrace all the sentimental energies that this time of the year has to offer. So, whether you’re single or in a relationship, here are a few magical Valentine's Day ritual ideas you can take part in to make the most of this powerful time of the year. 


Self-love Valentines Ritual Ideas for Singles

1. Making a self-love bath

To start, if you’re single and want to put more of a focus on loving and pampering yourself this holiday, a self-love bath spell is a great way to do so. From soaking up a new appreciation for yourself to washing away any self-hatred you may be holding onto, a self-love bath is a great way to connect deeper with your divine feminine energy and own who you are without judgment. With that said, our favorite way to do this is to start by cleansing the space and setting your intention. You can do this by sitting outside of your bathtub, smudging away any stagnant energy that may be lingering in it, and replacing it with only positive thoughts and feelings. 

Once you cleanse the empty bath space, you can then set the intention for manifesting self-love, with the water from the faucet symbolizing pure divine love filling up your bathtub before you get in. Then, once you are done with that, you can then begin to decorate the space in and around the tub with any spiritual items that are calling. A few ideas associated with the energies of self-love might include:

  • Rose petals for self-love and tenderness
  • Rose quartz for self-love and heart chakra alignment
  • Jasmine flowers for beauty and love
  • Lavender Epsom salt for calmness, beauty, and detoxing
  • Coconut oil for beauty and relaxation
  • Floral bath oils for connecting with beauty and divine feminine energy
  • Candles in colors of pink, white, purple, and red for love, beauty, healing, confidence, and self-love

  • However, aside from the other ideas mentioned above, our top favorite item pick for a self-love bath ritual is the rose quartz crystal candle. Crafted with scent notes of rose, geranium, and violet, this hand-poured floral candle comes in a 4oz metal jar and is aligned with all the wonderful energies of the divine feminine. With a rose quartz crystal hidden deep within the pink wax, this candle is designed to help you dive deeper into your heart and rid it of any ill thoughts you may have towards yourself. Because of this, this is one of our favorite candles to work with for self-care practices, as it truly helps to radiate the frequencies of divine love that can help to shift any negative thoughts you have about yourself to be more positive and confident.

    On the other hand, if you’re also looking to draw in and attract the energies of new romantic love to you through your self-love ritual bath, you might also consider trying the fire of love soap. Designed to reignite and enhance passion between partners, this soap has been crafted with all-natural vegan ingredients, including rose, ylang-ylang, and peppermint, all designed to stimulate the senses and invite in more authentic love connections. As a result, this may be able to help you to draw in a new romantic connection with someone truly special. 

     

    Overall, whatever you choose to use, taking some time to put yourself first, prioritize relaxation, and pamper yourself with all of your favorite things is a great way to connect deeper with all the positive, loving energies in your space and show yourself the tenderness and love you truly deserve. 

    2. Recite self-love affirmations

    Next, reciting self-love affirmations after soaking in the soothing energies of your self-love bath is a great way to boost your energy further and help you to recognize all the beautiful things about yourself that you often overlook and critique. For this, a few of our personal favorite self-love affirmations are: 


    1. I am beautiful

    2. I love and accept myself for exactly who I am

    3. I am beautiful

    4. I am enough

    5. The only approval I need is my own

    6. I am loved

    1. I am love

    8. I am valuable

    1. I am divine
    2. I am a Goddess

    Of course, these are only just a few of our favorite affirmations, and there are plenty more that you can find online with a quick search. No matter which you choose to use and recite, finding affirmations that resonate with you and repeating them every day, even after Valentine's Day, is a great way to channel more self-love into your daily life and make the most of these energetic aspects on this powerful day. 


    3. Write a love letter to yourself

    Next, another great way to embrace the loving energies of Valentine's Day is to sit down with a warm cup of your favorite tea and witch teaspoon and write a true and authentic love letter to yourself. Let me ask you this; when was the last time you sat down and truly admired all the unique and beautiful things there are to love about yourself? It’s probably been a while, hasn’t it? For that reason, while all this loving energy is in the air, taking time to reflect on all the things there are to love about you and putting it into a letter just as you would for a partner is a great idea.


    For this, just start by writing down as many positive things as you can about yourself. Whether it’s about your looks or your personality, think about what you would say if you were writing this to a partner to make them feel special, and then put that same effort into writing it to yourself. No judgment, no guilt, no shame; just pure divine love radiating from your heart right back into you. Truly, we are all our own worst critique and constantly compare ourselves to others whether we know it or not. Therefore, it’s time that we finally push that aside, call back our power, and remember how truly divine, beautiful, and powerful our soul really is. You are pure magic, babe. Make sure you never forget that.

    4. Decorate your altar with all the energies of love and self-love 

    Next, another great way to find love and healing on this powerful day is to decorate your altar space with the corresponding energies of Valentine’s Day. Whether you choose to focus this on self-love, romantic love, passion, or simply honoring love deities, your altar space is your sacred space, and setting it up to connect with the energies associated with this holiday is a great way to work with them and align with them more personally. Therefore, a few ideas for decor related to love/self-love you might consider including on your altar space are: 

  • Crystals such as rose quartz, garnet, or amethyst
  • Love and beauty deities statutes or symbols
  • Flowers such as roses, tulips, peonies, or orchid
  • Pink, white, purple, or red candles

  • However, if you ask us, our top pick for altar items for channeling self-love is our sacred love heart-healing set. Designed to hold the very essence of what true divine love is, this duo set can be used to help you delve deeper into your intentions in all love-related matters. Whether it’s manifesting self-love or attracting new romantic love, these unique products have both been enhanced with rose quartz crystal chips as well as lavender, rose, jasmine and ylang-ylang essential oils to help you draw in whatever form of love you’re seeking. As a result, they are truly one of the best products to work with for manifesting new love in its many forms, making them excellent to work with on such a powerful and sentimental day. .

    Overall, no matter what items you choose to use on your altar, just be sure to always choose decor that reflects the energies you’re looking to draw in, even if it’s not what you commonly see used for this holiday by others. If it connects with you and your practice, be sure to add it to your space to help the energy of this day be as strong and as personal as possible.


    5. Take time to make yourself feel beautiful

    And lastly, another beautiful way to embrace all the beautiful, loving energies this day has to offer is to dress yourself up in your favorite clothes and make yourself feel beautiful. While we are firm believers in loving yourself naturally just as you are, we also believe that sometimes dressing up in your favorite clothes and makeup is another way to embrace the energies of self-love in another form. With that said, if wearing makeup is one of the ways you feel beautiful, one of our favorite self-love makeup products we suggest trying out is the gentle ghost petal lip and cheek balm. Lightweight in design, this hand-crafted botanical product is a soft and subtle moisturizing balm designed to add a sheer array of warmth to your lips and cheeks that naturally aligns with the calming energies of self-love and empowerment like no other. Not to mention, this balm is also all-natural, made entirely of vegan and cruelty-free ingredients, so you never have to worry about supporting any unethical sourcing or unhealthy ingredients.


    Overall, no matter what form it takes, finding a way to express yourself in a way that makes you feel truly beautiful is one of the best ways to free your mind of expectations and let that inner light shine through. Whether that’s by wearing a full face of makeup and a sparkly dress or by rocking a messy bun and sweatpants, do what you need to in order to make yourself feel truly beautiful by your own definition, without any expectations from society or anything else. If you do that, you are bound to channel your own inner Goddess in the way she deserves in no time. 

    Magical Valentines Ritual Ideas for Couples 

    Onto some Valentine's Day ritual ideas for couples, here are a few of our favorite ways to make the most of the magical energies of love and romance on this day with your partner.

    1. Write a deep love letter to each other

    To start, a great way to make the most of this energy while also showing your partner how much you care for them is to write them a love letter. Just like we mentioned in the above list, writing a love letter is a great way to make someone feel special and can also help them to recognize all the wonderful things about them that they may not always see. Therefore, this holiday, you should take some time to sit down and write out something special for your partner with intentional energy to celebrate the day. And the best part is, you can easily treat this as a spell by focusing on each loving word that you write about your partner and redirecting that energy to them to help them channel and embrace all of these wonderful things about themselves, too. 


    No matter what way you choose to go about writing it, this is bound to be one of your favorite gifts that you and your partner will always look back on and is truly one that no amount of money could ever buy.

    2. Enhance the mood with sensual aromas

    Next, nothing sets the tone for a romantic evening quite like a dimly lit room full of sensual aromas. Whether you prefer candles, essential oils, or incense, certain aromas have a magical way of stimulating our senses to help us ignite the sparks of new love a little easier. With that said, a few of our top recommendations for setting the mood with some earthy aromas this Valentine's Day include:

  • Incense such as rose, sandalwood, lavender, dragons blood, and jasmine 
  • Essential oils such as ylang-ylang, rose, clary sage, patchouli, and lavender

  • On top of that, another suggestion for other ways to bring moody aromas into your space if you’re not a big fan of incense or oil diffusing is our black amber and lavender body spray. Made with a unique combination of both earthy and floral-based scent notes, this spray combines the sultry essence of myrrh, vanilla, french lavender, and amber to create the perfect environment for passionate moments. Not to mention, this spray can also be used as both a cologne or a room spray to create a truly aromatic atmosphere wherever you go. Whatever you choose to use, setting the mood for romance with aromas is a great way to spark deeper connections between lovers and create the perfect intimate environment for new love to blossom in. 

    3. Set intentions for your love life together

    And lastly, another one of our favorite ways for couples to connect deeper with the loving energies around them at this time is to delve into some intention setting and dreaming of the future. For this, you can simply start by asking each other:

    1. In your mind, what does the future holds for you both as a couple? 
    2. What are your hopes and dreams together for years to come?
    3. What are the biggest things you want to achieve and do together in this time?

    Of course, these are only a few ideas, and there are no right or wrong answers. This is just meant to act as a ritual to help you better understand the differences and the similarities of the visions you both have and find a way to fulfill them all. If you want to take this further with more of a magical element to it, after discussing your ideas with each other, you can also write these intentions down on a piece of paper and ignite the paper in a candle to help send the energy of your intentions out into the Universe to manifest them. Of course, just be sure to always use fire-safe tools if you do so and never leave any fire unattended. 

    Overall, this is just another simple yet powerful way to delve deeper into each other’s minds and get you thinking more about what your future together may hold.

    Conclusion 

    Overall, Valentine's Day doesn’t just have to be a day for flowers, chocolates, and expensive dinner dates. In fact, it can also be a great day to work with the tender energies around you and redirect them towards solo self-love practices or meaningful rituals with your partner. Whatever you choose to do, we hope this article has given you a few ideas for how you can make the most of the divine energies associated with this day to create the most memorable Valentine’s Day you’ve ever had.

    December Horoscope 2022: 12 Sign Overview
    December Horoscope 2022: 12 Sign Overview

    November 30, 2022

    As we prepare to say farewell to 2022, we welcome December, a month of change and renewal to send us off with flying colors into the new year. As the last month of the calendar year, December is likely to bring some closure to the events going on in our lives and present the signs with the opportunity to sit down, reflect, and plan out their future. As such, this is likely to give us a chance to get our life together more, slow down, and enjoy the moment with loved ones. 

    Aside from the general vibe of the month, December is likely to be quite an active month for the planets, with key influences coming from Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter. To start, we will kick off the month with Neptune going direct in Pisces in the first week of the month, stirring up a dreamy and imaginative aura that is likely to help us find better clarity in our lives. Mercury will then move into the sign of the Capricorn on the 6th of the month, boosting our communication and pushing us to speak more freely about the things on our minds. A few days later, Venus will move into Capricorn, which is likely to put a focus on our relationships for the next several weeks and help us find more stable ground within them. On the 20th, Jupiter will enter the Aries sign, encouraging expansion, new energy, and passion in our lives. 

    Then, on the 21st, we enter the season of the Capricorn, which is likely to push the signs to become more serious about the path ahead and work to start planning out their future better. This is also the same day that Yule begins, bringing with it a powerful period of restrospection, transformation, and rebirth. To end the month, Mercury retrograde will begin in Capricorn on the 29th, ushering us to reflect and slow down as we move into the new year with a steadier and calmer pace. And, with Mars retrograde still actively going on until January, this is likely to slow our energy even more so. 

    As you can see, December is likely to be full of many unique energies that are likely to inspire many changes within us as well. But, to give you a better idea of some energies that may be present around you this month, today, we're going to go over what energies and changes each Zodiac sign can expect throughout November and how you can adjust your life to make the most of them.
