What kind of information did our ancestors leave behind about money omens and signs? What kind of portents tells us that finances are about to dwindle or improve? By learning about these predictions, we can weave money magic for offsetting a negative trend, or accenting a positive one. Let’s get proactive!”
Here are some of the omens and signs to watch for and suggestions as to how to take the greatest advantage of them:
Money Magic Ants and Honey
An ant colony taking up residence near your home might be pesky, but it’s also an omen of wealth and security. To improve this energy, give the ants a small dollop of honey so they scatter more sweetness into your life.
Money Magic Apples and Financial Success

To determine what’s happening presently with your finances, get a deck of cards and randomly draw out one. If you get a club, you’ll make money on a professional endeavor, so enter into it with confidence. An ace of clubs indicates extreme success. The seven of diamonds indicates you’ll be making slow but steady progress, and the nine of diamonds or spades reveals the need to tighten your belt as money will be delayed. This last result may indicate that it might be good to wait on any deals or large expenditures for a bit. This is a type of divination known as Cartomancy.
Turn this omen into a charm by using a club, ace of clubs, or seven of diamonds as a component. For example, you might bless the cards, saying, “Seven of diamonds, wealth to me bond! When carried in hand, that’s where money lands!” Keep this in your pocket or wallet, and take it out just before accepting money in a transaction.
Burn a handful of cherry blossoms on your hearth fire. According to Roman tradition, if they flare up brightly, it bodes well for your money situation. Save some of these ashes and use them in money charms or spells. Alternatively, add dried cherry blossoms to your money incense blends.
