Middle Earth Magic: Inspired Ideas and Seasonal Spells for Your Enchanted Life

I grew up on a farm in West Virginia and learned much about herbs, trees, animals, gardening, foraging  and so much about nature. I incorporate this wisdom I learned from elders in my family into my spellwork. When I finally left the farm, I majored in Medieval Studies, my attempt to emulate my idol, J.R.R. Tolkien. All these influences led me to my own blended brew which I call "middle earth magic," containing a mix of the modern and the time-tested "old ways."

Creating a Love Goddess Altar

Make room for love in your life and your home! To prepare for new relationships and to deepen the expression of feeling and intensity of your lovemaking, you have to create a center from which to renew your erotic spirit—your altar. Here, you can concentrate your energy, clarify your intentions, and make wishes come true! If you already have an altar, incorporate some special elements to enhance your sex life. As always, the more you use your altar, the more powerful your spells will be.

Your altar can sit on a low table, a big box, or any flat surface you decorate and dedicate to magic. One friend of mine has her sex altar at the head of her bed. Another Goth girl has hers in a cozy closet complete with a nestlike bed for magical trysts.

Begin by purifying the space with a sage smudge stick—a bundle of sage that you burn as you pass it around the space. Then cover your altar with a large, red, silky-smooth piece of fabric. Place two red candles at the center of your altar, then place a “soul-mate crystal” at the far right corner. “Soul-mate” or “twinned” crystals are any crystals that formed fused together. They are available at metaphysical stores.

Anoint your candles with jasmine and neroli oil. Keep the incense you think is the sexiest on your altar as well. For me, it is currently peach and amber musk, which I simply love to smell. Your sex altar is also a place you can keep sex toys you want to imbue with magic. Place fresh Casablanca lilies in a vase, and change them the minute they begin to fade. Lilies are heralded as exotic and erotic flowers prized for their seductive scent.
