Watery, powerful, sensual, and secretive, it could easily be said that Scorpio is the sexiest sign of the zodiac. They value security and mastery in all things. Their still waters definitely run deep. This is your astrological sun sign if your were born between October 23rd and November 21st. The following simple spell uses herbs, oils, crystals, and a candle to attract passionate love to, or even from a Scorpio sun sign.
Astrology is a complex science, and while this spell primarily focuses on one’s sun sign, I urge you to also explore your moon sign, as well as the rest of your horoscope natal chart. These will provide additional insight and guidance in your life. The following ingredient list includes Tuberose for sweet love and easy times, Gardenia for devoted love and passion, Ginger, which is a hot spice for getting the mind and body racing, amethyst to focus and direct your efforts in the area of love, and to provide self love and healing. The purple candle should be carved with the symbol for Scorpio.
3 drops Tuberose oil
3 drops Gardenia oil
Pinch of powdered ginger
1 small purple votive candle carved with the symbol for Scorpio
Glass candle holder
Gather all ingredients together on your working altar. Place the carved candle in the center of your sacred space inside the candle holder. Place the Tuberose oil, Gardenia oil, and a small pinch of ginger on top of the candle. Place the crystal on the altar between you and the candle. Light the candle. If you must extinguish it before it burns down, smother it and relight it the next night. Each time your light it focus on the best possible manifestation of your sacred desires coming to you. When the candle has burnt down take the crystal and place it in your pocket. Carry it with you until your desires have manifested. When this is done throw the crystal into a moving body of water, thanking the universe for it’s blessings.
