As the year quickly draws to a close, I am reminded that it is once again the time to think about shedding oneself of any emotional baggage or regrets that bind us. We need to discard old burdens, push them out. And start to realize that the coming new year brings so many opportunities. We are essentially reborn into a much happier state of being – with new goals, new ambitions, new heights of achievement to attain, as well as the resolve to see these things through. Let go and see nothing but positive for the coming new year.
Now, there are many traditions around the globe as we see this entrance into the new year, but I want to share one with you that my family has done for several years. It enables you to symbolically banish the old from your life and release it so it can burden you no more. It also adds a welcoming ritual to your celebration that will help ensure your luck in the new year to come.
First, gather up all the things that you would like to see happen in the new year. For example, if you wish for your business to succeed, grab a business card. If you need more income, grab a copy of the want ads, or job description you want – or gather up some coins or a dollar bill. Photos of your family are always a nice choice. Just grab whatever feels right.
On a piece of paper, write the following:
‘Out with the old,
In with the new,
May prosperity and fertility
Come to you
On this New Year
So it shall be.’
Fold this little petition towards you three times.
You will toss these items into a plastic zip lock bag. You can also add money-drawing herbs like bay leaves, cinnamon sticks, magnetic sand if you have some. Anything that you desire in the coming new year.
Take the bag outside of your home and hide it somewhere that you will know where to find it.
A few minutes before midnight, light a candle – any color will do. Say the following:
‘As I light this candle,
I bid the the Old Year farewell,
With gratitude for milestones passed,
And memories cherished.
And I welcome the New Year in
With love and warmth and blessings.
That the quality of this new year be assured,
I now dedicate a moment to visioning
Some ways to make this year
A year of excellence,
A year of fortune.’
Pause for a moment to envision the kind of year that you want to have and the kind of person that you want to be. Enhance these visualizations by imagining your objectives charged with energy and bathed in glowing light. Then continue:
‘And thus do my wishes for the year
take on their own life and purpose.
So does the year itself
take on a glowing life and power;
A bright year, a bold year,
a golden year, a year of magic!
So may this year bring luck,
and peace, and prosperity
to one and all.’
From By Candlelight, by Janina Renée
Allow the candle to burn continuously, or relight it every morning to reactivate the energies of your eve celebration. Whether the candle takes a few days or a few months to burn down, you can be satisfied that its flames will radiate your blessings to last the twelve months out.
The morning of January 1, go outside and bring the zip-lock baggy inside your home. Symbolically, you will be bringing all these wonderful opportunities into your new year!
Anything written on paper in the baggy, remove and burn. Scatter the ashes to the wind.
Stay positive and focused this year, my Witches. Like attracts like… so focus on all the best things in your life – and it shall attract more.
Blessings to each of you, from the Swamp Witch & all of us at Inexplicable Things. May the new year be more prosperous than you can imagine!

This time of year – even the happiest and joyful of personalities can feel the weight of the world on their shoulders. The holiday season creates much chaos and depression.
Depression Relief Spell
White candle – taper or votive (not glass encased)
Blue Agate stone
Black Marker – wide tip
Lemon Balm – loose herb
Cut & Clear Oil
Small cloth pouch
Begin by completely coloring the white candle black with your marker. This symbolizes the depression that is presently encasing you.
Light the candle and say the following:
‘Flame cut through depression deep,
Melt it down and make it weep.
Grant me power to re-emerge,
From it’s grip, I leap and surge!’
Watch the candle burn until the white wax appears at the flame. Extinguish the candle if you need, or if you are able, add a drop of Cut and Clear oil near the flame. (Relight the candle if you extinguished it) Hold the Blue Agate stone in your hands and say:
‘Agate, stone of mellow hue, Dissolve this depression, I beg of you. Take its power and transform it’s strength, Into positive energy I can use at length.’
Lightly rub the stone against your temples, your third eye and then your heart. Place it in front of the candle and sprinkle lemon balm around it.
Let the candle burn completely.
When the candle is spent, place the stone, herbs and a piece of wax in a cloth pouch and carry it with you.
When your spirits need a lift, re-anoint the stone with Cut and Clear Oil and repeat it’s empowerment chant.
Side note: Agate, especially blue, helps one reach high spiritual places through peace, as well as patience and understanding. It’s associated with hope, cleansing, harmony, protection, positive thinking, joy, truth and promptness.
Simplistically easy…and yet quite effective!
- Black Ribbon or Cord
- Object to represent the target
- Doll, photo, candle, etc
Begin slowly wrapping the object with the cord while saying:
“By Air and Earth –
By Water and Fire –
So you’ll be bound,
As I desire.
By the power of mind,
Your influence I bind.
By Moon and Sun
This working is done
By Sky and Sea
Keep all harm from me.
As cord goes round,
All your power is bound.
Now be sealed.”
Bury in the ground, face down.
