The History of Love Spells

Updated: Feb 5, 2022

The use of love spells has been common for centuries, with some historians even dating them back to ancient Egyptian times. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries magic became widespread in the Mediterranean as well. Love spells are found all over the world, in various forms, with varying degrees of significance.

Love spells are often found in folklore, fiction, and popular culture. They are often associated with magic and witchcraft but can also be found in some religions. Many local and regional organizations, groups, and even governments are still so closely tied to the roots of these spells that they celebrate varying forms of love spells each year.

There are many different types of love spells, all with different purposes and varying degrees of intention. Good intentions point toward love’s most authentic, pure, loyal, and plentiful side. But bad intentions often lead to the darker side of love, such as spells dealing in lust, bindings, or repellants. No matter the love spell, the caster’s heart’s intention is pivotal. Energies flow best where they are invited, after all.

How Can I Aid My Love Spell?

The key to successful love spell casting is to take your time. You should do some research about the target person and find out what they like, dislike, and what inspires them.

Along with this research, there are other things you can do to increase the chance of success. One of the most important things is to reassess your love spell every day or two. You might change certain aspects of it based on their responses which you get from observing them.

We also highly recommend three areas of personal wellbeing to aid your love spell. These areas of care not only streamline the process by keeping energy flow channels running smoothly, but also aid in your attractiveness to potential partners in general. The three areas of personal wellbeing we recommend are:

· Behavior

· Appearance

· Positive Mindset


This area of personal care is concerned not with “how to behave,” but instead simply a focus on the notion of respectful behavior. To behave respectfully merely means mindfulness and consideration of others. The best part is that it does not require you to change anything about yourself.

In other words: it costs zero dollars not to be a jerk!


Without skewing too far into the realm of cynicism: we live in a shallow world. Not only does our collective Beauty Bias mean that attractive people get more opportunities. It also means that less attractive people are instead subject to “appearance-based discrimination.” Again, we’re talking about magic spells and spell casting here. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t help your own cause with a purposeful appearance. You need not shave everywhere or use the most expensive spa products. Just keep it tidy.

In other words: clean yourself up if you want the best chance at love!

Positive Mindset

It becomes clear that these three suggestions are closely related. That’s because, much like some of the love spells on this list, each improves the others. In this case, when dedicating personal care toward your own positive mindset, everyone wins! Your positivity feeds into your personal appearance, which further improves your mood, mindset, and behavior. And this domino effect has implications beyond you as well. Your family, friends, even people on your commute are affected by your energy simply out of sheer proximity. With the power of a positive mind behind you, you’re unstoppable.

In other words: the power of positivity is vast!

How Long Does A Love Spell Last?

The answer to this varies quite broadly based on a variety of factors. The amount of time a love spell will last has to do with:

· Lunar Calendar – the moon holds sway over much. Best to work within her energies and practice spell casting within the correct environment.

· Spell caster’s Expertise – the caster’s years of experience and areas of focus.

· Tools and Ingredients – the casting of some spells calls for various tools, resources, equipment, or ingredients. The amount and quality of these items also influence spell length.

Some love spells last a day; others, an entire season; still others can last a lifetime.

Note: if you’re new to this, we highly suggest working with an experienced spell caster early on so you can learn the ropes safely while tapping into the mystical side.

Are Love Spells Risky?

There are many ways that a person can use a love spell, but they all have one thing in common: they bring about some kind of romantic change. As in all things mystical, it’s difficult to control a love spell. You are dealing with magic beyond our plane that is not always fully understood, after all. Love spells do not work on every person. But just as unpredictable as the mystical energies behind it, magic often works on certain people when nothing else will.

It’s important to remember that the energies tied up in a love spell are not independent. The influence on a force as far-reaching as love can have ripple effects for lifetimes. Therefore we suggest learning everything you can about love spells before attempting to cast them yourself.

How to choose the right spell for you?

Choosing the right love spell can be a difficult task, especially if you are new to the world of magic. There are many spells, and it can be challenging to determine which one would work best for your needs. But magic is all around us and calls to us—even when we don’t know how to hear or answer.

Step 1: Get categorical

Spell casting is an essential element of magic, but it can be hard to determine which spell to use and when. The first step toward finding out if a spell will work for you is by understanding what kind of magic you’re after. For the purposes of this article, we are obviously focusing on love spells in particular, but there are many different categories of spells that may best suit your personal needs. Ensure you are on the right track before proceeding.

Step 2: Due diligence

Next, look into the school of magic or the organizations behind the spell. Ensure the school of thought’s mindset is aligned with your own before you dabble with magical energy through the lens of their practices. This mindset alignment is vital for short-term purposes (including the very effectiveness of the spell) and to ensure no unintended energies are released along with the casting of your chosen spell.

Step 3: Spell it out

The spell itself is next: backward and forward, upside down, and inside out. The incantation, action, symbols, gestures, and tools must become part of your knowledge as innately as breathing. This is especially important with love spells, as they require the focus of more than your mind, but indeed your heart as well.

Step 4: Lather, rinse, repeat

Practice makes perfect. And in the case of the supernatural, diligent preparation and flawless execution increase the chance of successful spell casting exponentially.

These are matters of the heart, after all. They are unpredictable enough as it is. Follow these steps to give yourself the best chance at a successful love spell.

What is candle magic?

There are many ways to try to cast a love spell, but one of the most popular ways to cast a love spell from home is to use what is known as “candle magic.”

Making magic with candles is best done at night. To work with candle magic, take a candle, light it, and strongly visualize what you want to achieve while keeping your focus for as long as other things do not interrupt you. Repeat the procedure every night and keep going until the moon completes its cycle (depending upon when you start).

When a candle has burnt out, the fire will have carried the energy from your desire to the universe so that it can be fulfilled.

However, as in many aspects of love magic, there are many more layers, and much more you can do to personalize, specialize, and focus the spell. For example, if you want to draw energy inward toward yourself, you can also write a power word on the candle starting from top to bottom. Conversely, if you need to push energy away from yourself, you would write a power word from the bottom up on the candle.

The lunar cycle (phases of the moon) play a role as well. To pull energy toward you more spiritually, start the spell on a new moon. Or to push it away, start on a waning moon.

Some psychics also advise burning the remains of the love spells rather than discarding them.

Candle magic is a great starter tool for those delving into mystical powers due to the accessibility of the materials. These materials are usually just candles and a light source (lighter, matches, etc.). Candle magic is also good for those newer to the experience due to the simplicity of the process. Just be sure you pick a candle of an appropriate color for the job:

· Green for luck, success, and prosperity

· Pink for love, affection, happiness, intimacy

· Yellow for focus, education, confidence

· Red for strength, courage, lust, potency, good luck, and willpower

· Blue for emotional healing, justice, inspiration

· Mauve for wisdom, meditation, royalty, and mystical practices

· Brown for stability, balance, the building of trust

· Black for protection and dispelling of negative energies


The realm of magic contains many doors and traverses many planes. Focused, will-driven spell casting can help open the doors to the heart of your beloved. But take heed and take care, as matters of the heart are often tumultuous. Overcoming the challenges of love, however, is about as fulfilling as it comes. Here’s hoping some of these love spells soothe your soul, comfort your heart, and inspire your mind!
