Do you have a date this Valentine’s Day? Are you In Love with a special someone? No? Well don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Valentines should never have to be lonely for the crafty modern witch. Here are some rituals you can perform to attract love this Valentine’s Day. Please note that you can also use these rituals to strengthen any existing relationships.
The first ritual to perform starts by purchasing a red rose and ribbon. The ribbon is meant to represent your expectations and desires while the rose represents you. On Valentine’s Day, find a quiet room that brings you comfort to perform the ritual there - You can also perform it at your Altar. Hold the ribbon in your hands and affirm all your wishes and desires. You can affirm anything from strengthening your current relationship to hoping to meet someone new. Meditate on this for and while and gently blow on the ribbon to finish.
The next step is to twist the ribbon around the stem of the rose and tie it with a knot. When you are done with this, begin meditating on yourself and your wish. The rose represents you and you alone so it is imperative to ensure it doesn’t come into contact with anyone else. After you are done, find the perfect hiding spot for your rose. Love will surely locate you after you perform this ritual.
For the second ritual, you will need a candle, a candle holder and a sharp quartz. Again, in a quiet room or at your altar, use the sharp side of the quartz to engrave a heart on the candle. As you draw the heart, imagine that all your heart’s desires have come to pass. After you draw the heart, place the candle on the candle holder with the quartz next to it.
When you light the candle, continue to meditate and believe in your heart that your desires have been granted. These rituals will certainly attract love to you this valentine or help strengthen your existing relationships.
For this ritual, you will need a pink candle, an apple, two roses (red and white) and a red ribbon. Light your candle and place it on an empty table. Next is to cut the apple into two halves and place your roses in vases on each side of the apple. Meditate o the intensity of the flame, calling upon the love you wish to attract. If you do not have any specific person to call upon, you may wish for the one destined for you.
If you are looking to attract new love, rekindle an old flame or strengthen your bond with a loved one, these rituals will surely help you this Valentine’s day. Don’t forget to take the necessary precautions and perform your rituals in a conducive environment for effective results.

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 😉
