I need help in the love dept!!please answer my question

Dear Lexa,
A couple of months ago I met a guy and we had been texting and emailing each other once in a while but never got a chance to hang out until just recently where it's pretty much become a sexual relationship. He works in the nightlife, is surrounded by women all the time and I just want to have him for myself! I've never had this type of situation and i really do like him. Is there any kind of spell to make our relationship flourish into something deeper....or i guess, if worse comes to worse at least something to keep the relationship we have?
Thank you!

Dear JLR
You need help in the patience dept!!! The fact that you sent me the same question over 3 times in separate emails has honestly ANNOYED me! It does not give me a lot of faith in your patience to sustain a relationship or even the realistic workings of the kind of spells you would have to work in order to bring positive change into this situation.

You ask for change but yet say you are willing to keep the status quo. Which is it? For magick to be truly effective, we must be committed to it! If you want to arrive at a certain destination, you cannot keep turning round in the road to revisit a place you have already been.

Now if you want to keep the relationship going as it is, I suggest using aphrodisiac foods and herbs such as oysters, celery, mint. (For a full list, you'll need to consult my book The Encyclopedia of Magickal Ingredients.) Yes, you will need to cook for him and infuse these things into both of your diets. You will also need to make constant offerings to Aphrodite and/or other goddesses of sexual delight and passion.

With regard to the larger goal? I am not exactly clear about what you are asking? Do you want him to quit his job in "nightlife" so he will not longer be "surrounded by women all the time"? Is there something he has done to make you doubt that he can (or wants to be) exclusive with you? If so, then you are treading in dangerous territory, especially if you attempt to do magick to try and control him and his will. This type of magick often backfires.

There is a candle spell that can be prepared (it can be ordered through my website) to help a relationship develop deeper. One can also petition the love goddess Erzuli for such matters. She loves pink, roses, melons. You can also work with red figure candles (one male/one female). Rub the candles with a love oil of rose, lemon, and musk and burn them for 10 minutes for 7 nights. Each night move the candles closer to each other. On the last night (which should end up on a full moon) let the candles be touching each other and melt completely into each other. Also on the 7th night, let the 2 candles burn to completion. Each night you must sit in front of the candles while they are burning and visualize how you would like the relationship to develop so that you can get closer. You may also petition the goddess for help in this matter. For many more love spells addressing this issue and other matters in love, please refer to my book The Supermarket Sorceress's Sexy Hexes.
blessed be and please remember to be patient. Bewitching as love spells may be, the immediate results of Samantha Stevens and her nose twitching are the stuff of tv sitcoms and magick does not always work that way in real life. Magick is the witches' form of prayer. Not all prayers are answered but that doesn't mean we shouldn't keep asking/praying for what we want. However, I caution you, that if you work spells, the way you send emails, it is an indication that you have little respect for or trust in the powers that be. Do not bombard the gods with your requests. (nor should you bombard the W.D.) Have a little faith and trust that your request has been heard and will be answered in good time. May the goddess bless you with true and lasting love.

Happy Full Thunder Moon

This full moon is called the Thunder Moon because thunderstorms are most frequent this time of year. It's also called the Buck Moon because it is the season when deer grow their antlers. It is also called Hay or Mead Moon. The Full Moon will occur at 7:47 PM ET this evening and it is in the sign of Aquarius. The best magickal principles to focus on for this full moon are healing, freedom, and creativity. It is a great moon for artistic pursuits, friendship, and developing your intuitive powers. Now is the time to get the lead out and create revolutionary change. Use the electrical energy of Uranus and the Moon to create dramatic, positive, and healing vibrations. Happy Full Moon.

Say your Prayers AND do your Homework!

Anonymous asks...

Hello Lexa,
My unemployment appeal hearing is coming up on July 31 and I want to know if I should repeat the spells that I got from your website in order to win my case? or should I have an attorney represent me?

WD answers...
BOTH!!! Magic must always be combined with real life action for best results!!! So repeat the spells AND get a good attorney!
Good luck!

Why do Spells Backfire?

Sassy asks...
how do you stop spells from backfiring? Everything seems to backfire with me! For example, trying to stop someone lying about me at work turns into me being accused of lying about someone else.
Thanks for your answer.

WD responds...
Often we go about working spells by attempting to control another's thoughts, feelings, or actions. This approach often "backfires" and that's why it is best to focus on ourselves in ritual. For example, you may want to do a protection from gossip spell on yourself instead of trying to tie someone else's tongue. Give it a shot and see if this line of magickal work doesn't bring better results for you.

Happy Friday the 13th

This is the second Friday 13th of 2007!
this post is being republished. It was originally part of a Thursday 13 post. (Apr 13 2007)

It is believed that on Friday the 13th...

1. Eve tempted Adam with forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden (which is why the day is unlucky for men).

2. Cain killed his brother Abel on a Friday. (unlucky for siblings.)

3.. Noah's Ark set sail into the great flood (which is why the day has become unlucky for sailors).

4.. G-d toppled the Tower of Babel and caused men to speak in different tongues (which is why people get scared and confused and have trouble communicating on this day.)

5.. The Temple of Solomon was destroyed. (a day of bad luck for Jews).

6. Judas was the thirteenth guest at the Last Supper and

7. Christ died on the cross that same Friday. (a day of bad luck for Christians.)

8. Friday was originally sacred to the Fertility Goddess Frigga or Freya. When the Norse and Germanic tribes converted to Christianity, the Goddess was banished to a mountaintop and called a witch. It is said that every Friday she met with 11 other witches and the Devil (a total of 13) to plan ill fated events for the week ahead for the people who had abandoned worship of her. (bad luck for ex pagans!)

9. Fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia.

10. In Greece, Spain, and Argentina, Not Friday but Tuesday the 13th is believed to be bad luck.
En martes, ni te cases ni te embarques, ni de tu familia te apartes. (on Tuesday, don't get married, don't start a journey, and don't separate yourself from your family).

11. On Friday, October 13, 1307, agents of King Philip IV began arresting the Knights Templar.

12. There are more traffic accidents on Friday the 13th and billions are lost in business because of superstition.

13. Friday the 13th is lucky for the WITCH :) and that luck can rub off so say hi to your local witch today and bring some good luck your way. Can't find a lucky witch to nuzzle up to? Ok, then press some cinnamon powder between your palms for good luck and chew on a bay leaf for protection and to ward off ill will. Drink Earl Grey tea (contains the sacred herb of Bergamot) for safety in travel.

Blessings and happy Friday the 13th!

Venus Retrograde

Dear Lexa:

First off, I have had several readings with you and absolutely love your work. Second, and the reason I am writing you, is the upcoming Venus retrograde. I have been reading some absolutely heinous things about what it may bring and was wondering if you could provide me some clarity. I am Libra, Taurus rising, Moon in Aries and Venus in Scorpio, my boyfriend is Scorpio, Leo rising, Moon in Gemini, Venus in Libra. It has always been a bumpy ride... but does this planetary arrangement mean we are about to capsize??

Thanks for everything,


Dear Á-J

Thanks for the kudos and your concern is understandable considering the planet heavily influences you. Both Taurus and Libra are ruled by Venus so you will be especially tuned in to all the subtle vibrations of this retrograde.

In general, romantic relationships can be strained when the planet of love trips the light fantastic a la Ginger Rogers*, just as communications are strained when Mercury the messenger goes through his backward motion. However, because Venus is transiting through Virgo, a healthy fight in couple's therapy could clear up years of bad air. This will be a great time to get to the bottom of things and figure out what has and what is going wrong and therefore you can prevent future problems. Look out though because as the planet moves back through Leo (Aug 13 - Sep 8), the egos take hold and we must take care not to let pride defeat love.

The saving grace of this retrograde is that when Venus transits through Leo, she will also be conjunct Saturn. This dance with big daddy is very favorable for forming long and stable unions. (Although marriage is not recommended during the retrograde.) The key is to be responsible in relationships and show up for the more serious issues in life.

Through your combined charts, it looks like you will have strong reactions to both the Leo and the Virgo aspects of this retrograde. The fire/air (Aries/Gemini/Leo/Libra) will be more susceptible to the Leo aspect yet the water (Scorpio) should respond quite well to the Virgo healing aspect. Will you capsize? It depends on how maturely you handle the challenges put before you during this period. Let's put it this way, the boat's gonna rock and it's definitely sink or swim time!

Here's a magickal life jacket to keep you afloat. Carve your names on a brown candle and anoint with lemon oil and pink glitter. Surround the candle in a circle of dried cranberries and light on Fridays during the retrograde period. Lemon and the color pink are sacred to Venus. Lemon is an oil of love and also used to cleanse and detoxify negative energy. It carries a strong healing vibration. Pink represents love and also stress reduction. Cranberries and brown candles are Saturnine and used to ground a relationship and keep it safe and secure. Bathe in fresh lemon juice and eat dried cranberries to infuse this energy into your auras. These ingredients create a magickal seat belt to protect you as you travel down the detours on that highway of love.

May Goddess bless all your endeavors of the heart with light!


p.s. Astrology on the Web has a really accurate, detailed, and positive description of the Venus Retrograde.

*She danced backwards and in heels!

Is it Big Love or Cheating?

Please help writes...
my husband lives two doors down with his girlfriend but spends two nights a week here at home. He swears he loves me and wants me to always be here for him. He is my life, my all. What can I do? Please help me!

Lexa responds...
Well, if you switch houses with the neighbors in between, you can all live together like the family on HBO's Big Love. Seriously though, I'm not quite sure how to advise you. He seems clear about what he wants but you don't seem at all clear about what you want. You sound somewhat resigned to the situation. Magick is usually not effective when there is no will or drive behind the ritual. You are not telling me that you want him to leave the girlfriend and be 100% faithful to you. In fact, it sounds like on some level you have accepted the polyamores arrangements. Figure out what YOU want - and then get back to me.

Are Witches Real?

Anonymous left a comment on Fire the Grid...

I saw it and it was really amazing. I have always felt that way. I want to get your opinion on something. Several years ago I had a reading by Sylvia Brown. And she told me that i would marry someone by November of 2002 with initials BK, and he would be short and husky with brownish-gray hair. Didn't marry that guy and never meet anyone with those initials. What do you think about Sylvia Brown when she says that witches are not real and are just fakes, I don't feel that way, but just want to know your opinion.

Dear Anon
Well, I don't have much of any opinion on SB. Don't know much about her except that I've seen her a few times on Montel while channel surfing. My impression is that she is pretty careless with the predictions. Just rolls them off the tongue and doesn't seem to ask permission from any angels or Goddess or use any sacred oracle to predict. (I could be wrong about this but from what I've seen, she just talks off the top of her head.) As for witches not being real...that's like saying Jews, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, or Hindus are not real. We are as real as any other spiritual/religious persons and those who truly worship the Goddess and follow her ways are not fake. Well, there you have it. My humble opinion.
Blessed be
