Cherry Stone Spell
Information and Theories 5/27/09
By: Yona Williams
If you are interested in casting a spell over the one you want to call your own, you should know that it's impossible to force someone to fall head over heels in love with the help of a ritual. Magic cannot be used to change the free will of an individual. When people attempt to use magic in this manner, the outcome usually ends in disaster. If you think positive, then you increase your chances of positive things occurring.
Remember that magic works hand and hand with spirituality. Enforcing your will negates this valuable part of the process. The cherry stone spell is used to attract a new love in your life. This particular spell is used by individuals interested in sending out a signal that they are ready to start a new chapter in their life and they are willing to accept a new love.
After the sun has set, prepare yourself to cast on a waxing moon, which increases your chances of attracting your desires in your direction. It is highly recommended to skip Saturdays for this spell, as this day is associated with Saturn, who is known to create restrictions. Before performing this spell, you will need:
Ã‚Â· 1 white candle (6 to 8 inches long)
Ã‚Â· 1 red candle (6 to 8 inches long)
Ã‚Â· Matches or a lighter
Ã‚Â· Nine ripe red cherries
Ã‚Â· 1 glass of white wine
Ã‚Â· 1 teaspoon of clear honey
Ã‚Â· 1 square piece of red cloth (measuring 4 inches)
Ã‚Â· 1 piece of thin cord or twine (measuring 24 inches)
To perform this spell, start by casting a circle. Next, light the white candle and say: 'Firm of purpose, pure intent. The same can be said of [he or she] who's sent.' Follow up by lighting the red candle and repeating: 'Passion's fire, heart that's true. This guiding light I send to you.'
Start eating the cherries, but take care to spit the stones into the wine. For each stone that you spit, recite: 'Beauty, Sweetness, Vigor, Youth, Faith, Loyalty, Passion, Truth, Love.' Place the honey in the wine and stir. As you do so, say: 'Sweetness draw you to me. Love intoxicate thee.' Sip the mixture until all you see is the cherry stones remaining at the bottom of the glass.
Next, place the stones in the center of the red cloth. Use the cord to tie the cloth into a pouch. This pouch is to be hung over your bed until your new love is found and joins you in this same bed. Once this has taken place, bury the cherry stones in a garden (preferably your own) so that your love will continue to flourish.
Why the Cherry?
For this spell, the cherry is used because it serves as a symbol of partnership and a prosperous future. This magical association has a long history. The cherry stones in the spell will represent the qualities in a future love that will contribute to the romance and other aspects of your relationship.
