 BASIC SPELL CONSTRUCTIONBecause of the very nature of Magick, each working should be highlyindividualized and personal. Even if following a traditional spell,it should be tailored to your specific needs to be most effectivefor you. Understanding the basics of Spell Construction will enableyou to formulate your own specific, effective spells for any purposeyou desire.Preliminary planning is necessary. The very first step is to decideprecisely what your desired end result is to be. Before you canstart, you must decide where you are going. You must be veryexplicit.It is important, also, that you choose your time carefully. Youshould take into consideration all Astrological implications, energycurrents and Moon phases.The Moon is the astronomical body closest to us and, therefore, hasa profound influence upon us, it is very important to choose a timewhen the Moon is in an astrological sign which is appropriate foryour working. For example: Aries/Action - Enthusiasm, Taurus/Renewal - Sensuality, Gemini/Communication - Curiosity, Cancer/Emotion - Nurturing, Leo/Vitality - Determined, Virgo/Organizing -Studious, Libra/Balance - Cooperation, Scorpio/Sexual -Philosophical, Capricorn/Authority - Ambitious, Aquarius/Innovation- Social, Pisces/Sensitivity - Idealistic.Bear in mind that magickal workings for gain, increase or bringingthings to you, should be initiated when the Moon is Waxing (fromDark to Full); when the Moon is Waning (from Full to Dark), it istime for magickal workings of decrease or sending away.The highest energy occurs at the Full Moon and, therefore, this isthe most powerful time for magickal workings. The New Moon is thenext most powerful time for Magick.Whenever possible, follow Nature's natural Energy Currents. Thereis a natural time for starting things (a planting time), formaturing things (a growing time), for reaping things ( a harvesttime) and, of course, a time for rest and planning.Flowing with these currents will make your magickal work much easier.Remember to plan your project for a time of uninterrupted privacy.It is important that you have no distractions. Generally speaking,it is best to work as late at night as possible. A time when thereis less frantic energy is most appropriate. You might considerMidnight or later.In choosing a place to do your magickal working pay particularattention to your needs, for you must be comfortable. Your placeshould be private, quiet and secure. If at all possible, set asidea special place for this purpose only. An unused room, a specialcorner of your bedroom, a quiet, secluded spot in your garden. Aplace that is yours. A place that you can come to whenever needarises and that is as free from intrusion of others as possible.Prior to the night of your magickal working, gather together thethings that you will need. All of the things used are tools. They
have no inherent magick. They are to help you create a mood. Ifcorrectly made and used, they will trigger primitive responses fromdeep within you. They should be chosen with care.Consider the purpose of your ritual and choose your toolsaccordingly. If your magick is to be sexual, your candles, oils,incenses and so forth, should bring forth a sexual response. If thedesired result of your Magick is Tranquillity, then the tools shouldmake you feel calm, peaceful and serene. Any candles you might useshould not have commercially added fragrances as these may not beappropriate for your working.Prior to your ritual, prepare yourself and your equipment by anymeans necessary to clean and purify. Historically, people havefasted, followed meticulous and detailed bathing practices,practiced chastity and used many other methods.Most often a Ritual Bath is the preferred method. A bath frequentlyutilizing candlelight, fragrant herbs, bath salts or sensuous oils.A sumptuous hot bath, special bathing preparations and appropriatelighting, combined, can create the soothing effect which will helpin the very important step of relaxing and clearing the mindcompletelyof all mundane thoughts and experiences of the day. Your ritualBath should, also, begin to set the specific vibrations conducive toyour purpose into motion. You must not only cleanse and purify butmust, also, begin to create the type of energy necessary.Once your purification process has been accomplished, you are nowready to begin. Proceed to the special place you have previouslychosen in which to perform your magick. If at all possible, youshould make use of the primitive responses set into motion by a wellchosen piece of music. Your music should start slowly and build toa rousing climax.As you use your oils, light your candle or incense (or utilize anyother tool you have chosen), you should begin to further intensifythe energy that you have set into motion around you. A high degreeof intensity is vitally important.The Altered State of Consciousness that you must reach is not ameditative state. Anything that interferes with your ability toconcentrate upon, reach and control the high energy state necessaryto perform magick should be avoided. Such as, screaming children, asink full of dirty dishes, use of alcohol or drugs, etc.Do not scatter your energy by attempting to do more than onemagickal working at a time.Remember that Magick is the manipulation of energy, a thought is aform of energy and a visualization is an even stronger form ofenergy. Your visualization can be a method used to intensifyfurther and direct your will. Your visualization can be the methodby which you control the magickal energy you have produced.You must know what you want. You must see it. You must feel thehigh energy flow. You must direct it.One of the most important elements in the practice of any form ofMagick is the Universal Law of Cause and Effect. This means thatwhatever you do (or don't do) you cause something to happen.The most important consideration is the Universal Law ofRetribution. This means that no matter what you do, it comes backto you in like kind.It is the nature of things that as you send something out it gains
