3 best spells for luck and good fortune


If your luck’s run out on you, sure, you can cast a luck spell – but will one luck spell be enough to turn your fortune around?

If your luck has gone down the drain, you need to up the ante. But the truth is, one spell isn’t enough. You need to cook it up to the max. So in this post we’ll look at casting a lucky threesome to get the elusive Lady Luck smiling on you – big time.

So here’s the first item to go in your spellworking toolbox…

Lucky Nine Oil

To produce this formula, you will need:

  • Allspice
  • Carnation essential oil
  • Cinnamon
  • Frankincense essential oil
  • Galangal
  • High John the Conqueror (a few small pieces)
  • Lemon zest
  • Myrrh (I use resin, but you can use essential oil)
  • Vervain essential oil

If you can find one, I would pop these ingredients into a rollerball container (you can find them online). If not, a normal bottle is fine, but a rollerball makes it easier to apply. Then cover them with a carrier oil (I’m still favoring the holly oil, but jojoba oil is good too) and give it a blend to release the powers into the oil.

This oil is now good to go, and you can use it by rubbing it onto your skin, or for dressing items such as candles or mojo bags. The uses are limitless…

The second item is a magickal powder…

This formula is based on bergamot powder. The only thing you have to bear in mind with bergamot is that it makes the skin super sensitive to sunlight, so it’s a good idea to use it on parts of the skin that are covered. An ideal thing to do would be to maybe sprinkle some in your shoes. There’s always a way round these things …

To rustle up this powder, you sift together a blend of cornstarch, arrowroot powder and bentonite clay, until you have a fine powder. Add a couple of drops of bergamot oil until you feel you have the right strength of fragrance. Mix it together well to distribute the oil, and then leave it to dry. Once it has dried, pop it into an airtight container and use it to dust onto your body to attract good luck.

For a variation on this powder, you can leave out the bergamot and substitute peppermint oil, and the resulting powder can be used to draw joy and good fortune, and has the added benefit of being cooling and soothing on hot skin.

And so on to the third item in your armory of Luck…

This is a lucky written talisman, based around the names of the Archangels. (I can hear Doc sighing at the mention of “angels” from here).

So … a talisman is an item that draws good fortune and luck your way, while an amulet is meant to be used for protection. Anyway, to produce this talisman, firstly you perform your usual cleansing ritual. Then take a piece of parchment paper, and write the names of the seven Archangels on it, maybe using dove’s blood ink, or whatever feels appropriate to you.

The seven names are:


As they are Hebrew in origin, it helps to strengthen the powers of the talisman if you write them in Hebrew (a handy translator can be found here).

Once you have crafted your talisman, you can either hang it on the wall in your home, or you can anoint it with your Lucky Nine oil and carry it on your person in a mojo bag.

So there you have it, a trilogy of threefold spells to help you to draw the best to any situation.

Make a Japanese style lucky shelf to attract luck to you

A lucky shelf acts like a a personal shrine that acts like a magnet to draw good fortune…

While it may not look like it, the above picture shows a collection of magickal items used for good luck in Japan.

In Japanese culture, there is nothing more powerful to attract luck than depictions of the male generative organs. The only thing that surpasses it for that extra bit of luck is to display images of the male and female genitals – preferably conjoined.

The belief behind it is that male organs draw luck, while female organs draw protection.

The traditional way to display these items was on a “Lucky Shelf”, designed specifically for this purpose. This shelf was in effect, an altar, and could be kept open or discreetly closed, as required. The exception to this was in Japanese Pleasure Houses, where the shelves were kept in plain sight, to provide better business magick as well as generating good luck and fortune in general.

When realistic amulets were banned, the Maneki Neko – you know, that lucky waving cat that you see in many shops – emerged as an acceptable substitute. Other things were used as well, like cowrie shells or similar shaped objects, which may have gone some way to not frightening the customers away.

Whichever way you chose to display your shelf, the traditional Lucky Shelf was arranged and then left alone to radiate its power. The role of the spell-caster was to collect particularly fine specimens of images, and then carefully arrange them and care for them.

If you wanted to put something similar together, you could source items that represent primal generative powers to you, and then combine them with other lucky and sacred charms you may already have.

To add to their potency, you can also spiritually cleanse and charge the items, and you may like to add in a little candle magick too.

Whichever you choose, just remember to discreetly cover them somehow when your Great Aunt or the vicar come over for tea. Or maybe not … who knows what you may discover!

Ghost Smoke Ritual: Shake a Run of Bad Luck


If you’ve been having a long run of bad luck or misfortune – and let’s face it, if it happens to you, even a few days can feel like a long run – this might be the result of negative elemental spirits or energies that have latched on to you. This may have happened while you were at a low ebb, which made you less able to fend them off.

The following ghost smoke powder ceremony is very effective for banishing any negative forces that are causing bad luck.

Ghost smoke – commonly known as “smoke powder” – is available from magic (conjuring) or joke shops, and is used quite a bit by practitioners of voodoo. When lit, it gives off billows of white smoke.

The ceremony should be done outdoors after sunset. DO NOT do it indoors, as you could do more harm than good. This is what you do:

Take a piece of good quality (thick) art paper, and write your name on it using red ink or Dove’s Blood Ink if you have it. Ideally, you would use a fountain pen or a dip pen, but a felt tip or biro is fine.

Also write the following prayer on the same piece of paper:

“Mysterious beings and spirits that direct my Fate, hear my call!Help me in my plight! Make this run of bad luck and misfortune leave me. Bring me peace of mind and prosperity. Keep me from harm and hardship. As the weaving smoke reaches the upper-worlds of the multiverse, grant me my wish!”

That’s quite a long prayer, right? So you may want to check that your paper is large enough before you start writing.

Put a teaspoonful of ghost smoke powder onto another piece of paper and place it on the ground. Now place the paper that you have written on over the piece with the ghost powder and sprinkle it with a few drops of pine oil.

Carefully light the powder, and as the smoke billows, concentrate with all of your might on your wish to be rid of negativity.

When the smoke has burned out, gather the parchment and ashes and bury them in the ground. Do this ritual three nights in a row.

After this, all negativity in your Life should literally just go up in smoke!
