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.
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:
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.
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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
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:
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.
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.

Bruja/o/x culture (brujería), stem from an ancient set of mystical beliefs and practices that have been passed down through generations in Latin America. It has its roots in the indigenous spiritual traditions of the region, as well as elements from African and European cultures and today’s Instagram hashtags #bruja and # brujería have over 2M posts combined.
As other magical practices, brujería orbits honoring spirits and deities, divination, nurturing specific traditional healing methods such as curanderismo, and rituals to protect oneself from negative energy. Get yer charms out!
In Latin American countries like Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, Cuba, Colombia, and Brazil it is still a vibrant part of daily life for many people, though there are some variations depending on location. The original practice was brought over by Spanish conquistadors during their colonization of the Americas, and the stories say the cobblestone streets were “paved in slave bones”—see a pattern of repressed magic much? Seems everywhere we turn there’s a need to rise up from the lid put on us for being natural… No longer, though. You watch! This next 20 years will have diverse magical cultures openly practicing without fear, the time is nigh 😊🌿☽🌕☾
Now evolved into something unique to each region, brujería remains a source of immense pride for those who practice this tradition, which continues to hold strong despite attempts to marginalize or even eradicate it

Are you looking for insight into your archetypal planetary vibes? Do you want to know what the stars have in store for you in May of 2023? We Spirit Nesters can help you to gain insight into the events going on. With Pluto’s ingress to Aquarius, the upcoming trends vibrate with Uranian energy, so expect the unexpected! From love and romance to career and financials, May prepares us for individual and collective freedom or to take steps towards clarity and avoiding potential pitfalls. Read on to get into the flow of your elements and how each sign expresses itself in what's coming up!
Astrological Movements: In May, we see the Sun in Taurus and Mercury in Gemini, which will inspires an increase in mental acuity with a skosh of practicality. This is a sweet, sweet time for learning new skills or tackling projects that require careful attention to detail. However, it's also important to be aware of potential communication issues that may arise due to this pairing. You'll want to think carefully before fully speaking your mind during this month! This isn’t to say withhold info, but just be prepared to take the repercussions if you do, from both sides of the coin…
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) can find themselves feeling energetically active during this month as they take on new challenges with enthusiasm and learn through friction, that’s what squares do, and there’s potentially enormous power in that, though not always 100% comfortable. We all know what kind of magic happens outside that zone, though, yes?
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo Capricorn) can expect stability and security thanks to the positive energy flowing through their world right now, but it’s super important that you know in which house Aquarius sits, because that security can be going through do-over renos, you feel me? And we’re not just talking light stucco here, we’re talking a new roof level of shift, lol.
Air signs (Gemini Libra Aquarius) can prepare themselves for exciting conversations as creative ideas come into play – but don't forget that words have power too and can anchor you to stuff that you might not have anticipated! The intellect is in full gear and, depending on where your moon sits, you could be having emotional epiphanies in May that will set stuff free that you might have been holding onto for too long.
Water signs (Cancer Scorpio Pisces) can experience heightened emotions during this period which could lead to solidified feelings emerging that you FINALLY understand, so make sure you take time out for yourself to feel them all the way through, up from the heart center and like a pinball machine bounce them around until their out on paper or in song or other creative force. Emotional inventory always feels correct and May has the vibes to take you through with the strength of an ox 😉
