I get by with a little help from my friends...

Hello Lexa, and Blessed be.

I am a witch of about 9 years now and have had many successes with magick. But there is something that is bothering me.

On the normal scale I can cast love spells and employment spells for others and they turn out fine. For example, when I cast a love spell for myself the love spells work the total opposite of what I strongly visualize (Meaning that this happens despite the fact that I focus on no one in particular, cast on Friday during a waxing moon, Venus planetary hour, pink / green / red candle depending on the type of love sought, the belief that I deserve love, and the emotions / desires / visualizations are all strong).

Now when I cast an employment spell for myself, I follow the same protocol (Utilizing the proper day of week, moon phase, planetary hour and tools of choice, imparting the desire, visualization etc) and instead, my employment spells don't manifest for me at all. They only seem to manifest when they are cast for others. I would like your opinion...why can't I cast an effective love or employment spell for myself as I can for others?

Thank you in advance for reading and replying, if you are able.


Now Tanya poses an interesting question. I remember just such a problem in the old Enchantments days. We were a close knit coven all working in the shop and carving one successful candle and weaving one powerful spell after another for lots of OTHER people. But when we did magickal work for ourselves, it just wasn't quite as effective. That's when we got the idea to do magick for each other. Ha, worked like a charm. So Tanya, I hope you're not a solitary because I think what you need is a witch buddy to work a spell for you. That's just how it is sometimes. We may become too attached to the results when we work our own spells and actually block them from manifesting. Best of luck, magick, and success.
Blessed Be
