Weather Spells

Now, when it comes to weather spells, I have to say I am not all that confident in using them. Weather and the power of Mother Nature herself is stronger than any human so I can't say that any of these spells are guaranteed to work.

But people have been using weather spells of some sort to control the weather since before recorded time, so maybe there is something to it after all.


Storm Spell

If you are hoping for exciting weather, this spell can help you conjure up a storm. You only need a few things:

• A sprig of broom
• Sea salt
• Water
• Wooden spoon
• A red candle

Now, for this spell you need a piece of the broom plant, NOT an actual broom you sweep with. You may have to check herb suppliers, florists or plants shops to find it. There really isn't a substitute for broom in a weather spell.

Light the red candle and pour water into the bowl while you say:

Rain that brings a land's rebirth
Time to weep upon the earth.

Use the spoon to stir up the water, then dip the piece of broom in. Repeat:

Winds shall follow, you shall see
Blowing wildly through the tree

Envision a storm growing in strength and power. Let a few drops of hot wax from the candle fall into the water, and say:

Lightning quick, lightning long
Make it last, make it strong

Add in the salt to seal the spell and stir again. Give it one last stir, and take it immediately outside and toss it all into the air (you can hold on to the bowl). Don't let the water settle down before you throw it. Now you can expect a storm to start brewing on the horizon within a few days.

Sunny Skies Spell


And for the other side of the weather coin, here is a spell to bring in some sunny skies. All you need is:

• A very small bowl
• Enough rainwater to fill the bowl
• Salt
• Yellow or orange candle


The size of the bowl kind of depends on when you want the sunny weather to kick in, so choose a dish after reading the whole spell. Fill the bowl with rainwater, and add a few pinches of salt. Not coarse sea salt, but regular fine-ground salt. Set the bowl in a window sill, or on a table near the window. Place the candle nearby and light it. Repeat the following:


Rain, rain go away

Come back another day

Yes the words are a bit cliche, but they do sum up your intentions nicely. Let the candle burn for at least an hour, or let it burn until it's done on its own. The weather will start to clear up as the water evaporates from the bowl. When the dish is dry, it will be bright and sunny out again.
