Finding Spell


I don’t normally post my spells online, but this one is so specialised that it would be difficult to use it for anything else.

I lost my wedding ring while going on holiday. I was in the car and pulled my rings out of my coin pocket only to hear my wedding ring going “tinkle, tinkle, disappear”. Hubby searched the car three times to no avail and (despite being non-pagan) knew it would be a bad omen if it wasn’t found, so I had to roll up my sleeves and make a spell.

What is now two
should be three
tomorrow brings my wedding ring
back to me

In the name of
The Morrigan, Badb and Macha triplicity
as two of them
do not make three

I normally have three rings which my husband has given me : engagement, wedding ring and a garnet one he gave me for an anniversary. I either wear all three rings or don’t wear any of them, so they are a set.

I was nervous and unsure that this spell would work. Firstly, because I was ill when I made it. Normally I do divination to see if it would work, but if I did divination when ill all I would divine is that the tarot cards are very pretty, which was why I put in the deities, which I don’t normally do. The Morrigan is a tutelary deity of mine and has said she’ll give her help with spells, so when I needed a triplicity to complete the spell I invoked her.

The other reason for my nervousness was that I have never done a timed spell, but hubby was putting the car in for it’s M.O.T. the next day (a British car test which is a legal requirement) and was going to ask the mechanics to look for my ring. As everyone knows, often an item is found just after you have replaced it and I did not want this to happen. The mechanics found my ring sitting in the rear footwell, where my hubby had already looked.

If I had to do this spell again I would cut my normal circle casting down from nine jars with candles and items in them (search for my post on circle casting if you’re interested) to three, as it would amplify the intent of the spell, but I’m more than happy with the result.

How Traditional are you?


To answer my own question, I base my own practice on tradition but I am not going to vet everything I do scrupulously to make sure it’s traditional. Yes, elements creep in that I have made up, especially as I have no teacher, so my practice evolves from what I have read in books or on the net with things that are relevant to the occasion added in. This is most likely to happen in ritual, as I cast the circle and then speak from the heart and in the moment without script. I will research the festival beforehand, but what I speak is from my head.
