Spell Casting for Black Magic, Witchcraft,
and Wiccan Magick

To cast a magic spell

Taking the time and making the necessary preparations to make your spell-casting successful are key skills of the experienced witch. Magic Spells, rituals, and incantations can be used for good or evil, but much of their power lies in the will or intent of the caster and the skill with which that spell-caster performs the magick spell, ritual, or incantation. Magic Spells, charms, and rituals can be used as originally written or created by someone else. They can also be altered or designed specifically for a particular purpose. Generally, the more experienced a witch is and the more focused a spell is, the greater its chance for success will be.

Spell casting, when performed properly, is probably the single most important component in achieving success with your magic spells and rituals. You can never go overboard on an investment of time and energy into the preparation and execution of your spell. Casting spells "on the fly" almost always leads to failure. Be wise, take the time and care necessary to make your spells successful.

  • First and foremost, especially for beginners, find a quiet location where you will not be distracted or interrupted. Take time to prepare yourself and your spell. Do not hurry. You will be working with one of the most powerful forces in the universe, treat it as such.
  • Remain focused and be specific. Don't be shy about specifying that which you desire. Always keep in mind that magick works best when you are clear regarding your needs or desires. Focus your power. Work on one thing at a time. Casting a spell for multiple wishes never works.
  • Timing is very important. Casting your spell at the proper time will enhance its power. Days of the week and phases of the moon all have specific energies associated with them. By choosing the right time for a spell, you can help to insure its effectiveness.
  • Choose your words carefully. If it is a spell you have written yourself, you have a little leeway, if it is an established spell, practice before you begin, there's a reason it is written that way. Many practitioners, some claiming great experience, fail to heed this admonition, and while they may have some limited success, it remains just that-limited. The words are important. The language in which the spell is written or cast does not matter-it is all in the intention conveyed by the words.
  • Remember the importance of symbols. When casting a spell it is always best to surround yourself with the appropriate objects and tools that will serve to enhance the power of the spell.
  • Be careful. Act responsibly. I'm sure you've heard the old admonition, "Watch what you wish for-you might just get it!" Well, with spell casting you can multiply that admonition many times over. Be very careful what you ask for and how you ask for it-you may get much more than you bargained for!
