Spellwork Sundays: Ritual Love Bath

Spellwork Sundays

Ritual Love Bath
September 15th, 2019
 “Open the gates to your soulmate, with a ritual bath of love!”

 

Hey all! For this edition of Spellwork Sunday I wanted to talk about ritual baths and how they can be used to remove blocks in your path for finding true love. You can spend all of your time setting the intention, but if your path has anything in its way you may be casting out a love letter with no address back to sender.

Energetic or magickal blocks can be caused by a number of sources, and in the case of dealing with matters of love, it could be past pains from an old relationship, insecurities, a lack of self love, or a good ol' fashion curse that could have been laid on you. A ritual bath is a perfect way to literally cleanse yourself of any of these energies and more.


Time / Planetary Hours:

  • Friday, the day of Venus, which governs love spells and most deities associated with these energies.

Altar Decor Setup & Suggestions

You can create a simple altar for this, or make it as lavish as you want. Whatever holds importance for your spell is up to you!

  • A clean bathtub, free of any extra items or distractions, (bathing products, and yes even your rubber ducky has to go for this one.)
  • 2 white candles, 2 green, or red, which ever you prefer. (Green is associated with Venus and love)
  • Rose petals, be it dried, or fresh.
  • Raw lavender 
  • 4 full fresh roses, stems and all. You may remove the thorns if you wish.
  • Crystals associated with deep heart healing and empowerment. Some examples that would work are rhodochrosite, green tourmaline, malachite, emerald, and Rose Quartz
  • Pen, & Paper. 
  • Myrrh incense or resin
  • Idols or icons of deities of love (if you work with any), or anything shaped in a heart works just fine.
  • A glass of Wine (if a deity is chosen to work with)


    Simple Steps and Procedures

    • While your bath is filling with water, take the four full roses, and walk four houses down from your home. Starting at the bottom, place a rose in front of each house, leaving the last rose in front of your own. With each rose you leave focus on your intention of what true love means to you. Maybe make a song to go with it or sing a love song you already know! Either will help raise the vibration of the intention.
    • Now that you have returned to your bath, fill the bath with the dried lavender which is used for healing, and purifying your bath water, charging it up with this energy to welcome you while clearing stagnant energy blocks in the way of your heart.
    • Fill the bath with the rose petals you have. You don’t have to cover the top of the bath, a handful is fine, but let me be honest- it is visually stimulating to see a bath full of roses, and since we are working with love and beauty, the aesthetic will raise the intent!
    • Place your candles in all four corners of your tub, accompanied by any of the crystals listed above.
    • If you are working with any deities for this, place their icons in a place that you will be focusing on. This will work the same if you have a symbol of a heart. Personally, I worked with the Egyptian Goddess of Love, Hathor for this ritual.
    • Light the myrrh incense and let the smoke waft over your body. Myrrh is associated with purification and cleansing.
    • Before ascending into the bath, you may choose to bottle up some of this water which can be used in future rituals regarding beauty and self-love.
    • Sit in the tub and run the rose petals across your body. Focusing again on the intention of “rubbing away” stagnant energy blocks, that are holding love at a distance from you.
    • Now that we have erased the blocks, it’s time to ask the deity of your choosing or your own higher power to connect you to the energy that will speak clearly with your heart. Allowing love to find it’s way to you.
    • By this point, you are full of intention, and have a direct visualization of what love looks, feels, and smells like to you, so since we are hot on it, we are going to take that pen and paper and we will write these sentiments down. We will also write down what love does NOT represent and feel like to us, so that when we are in times of need, we can refer to this letter as a reminder of our worth.
    • Seal the letter up with some of the wax from the candles and place somewhere safe so you may return to it at your leisure if you need to.
    • Give thanks to your deities, higher powers or archetypes you are working with. Offer the wine, give the candles a rest and either keep the crystals with your letter, or if you chose to bottle any of the bathwater, near the bottle would work lovely to continue to charge it up as an elixir. 

    Pro Tip:

    If finding these ingredients is overwhelming or if you're too busy, try our Aphrodisiac Bath Ritual Kit as it has all of the ingredients you will need for this bath- lavender, rose petals, essential oils, crystals, and more!

     

    You have now successfully removed the blocks in front of your heart, I hope that this ritual is able to open you to the blessing of finding true love. <3

      When I think of June, karma is the word that comes to mind. Now I know that is a word that often gets thrown around a bit. In this case, astrologically speaking, karma is neutral. It's neither good nor bad. It just is. Events taking place this month will be karmic by nature. Meaning; many people will be going through something that helps us move from one lesson to the next. These "situations" are a direct result of something that may have happened in the past, be that in this lifetime or another. Consider them hoops you need to jump through to prove your commitment to getting to where you want to go. Many planets are in a combination of Water or Air signs, so naturally, there will be a lot of thought-provoking conversations, and sharing of emotions. Planets like the Sun in Cancer, or Mercury in Cancer can have us...

      The New Moon makes her monthly appearance at two degrees of the mutable air sign, Gemini. Gemini is the mercurial master, the magician, negotiating deals and lending a helping hand finding the middle ground. Gemini excels in relating and often encourages us to consider various perspectives in any given situation. New Moons give us the monthly opportunity to set intentions revolving around new beginnings, and this lunation is exceptionally potent for these types of intentions. Seeds planted now will begin to blossom at the end of this year. This New Moon is solid coming in at two degrees, and in harmonious aspect to Saturn. Here we hear whispers of what the future may hold. Saturn keeps a watchful eye in Aquarius, encouraging us to

      On May 21st, The sun enters the enigmatic sign of Gemini where it will stay until June 20th... Gemini is the 3rd sign in the zodiac and is widely misunderstood because of their often mystical and elusive powers. Gemini is ruled by Mercury along with its more nourishing, feminine and grounded friend the Virgo. Mercury rules over communication, the written word, knowledge, transportation, siblings and is known as the messenger and processor of information.
