“Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it will not replace you as the driver.”
– Ayn Rand”
Who says you can’t take it with you? Many of us carry charms and amulets inspiring all kinds of energy in our lives, so why not have one or two for money? The question for many is, which process and ingredients should I use for my goal?
Amulets, Charms, and Talismans: ACT
When put into an anagram, amulets, charms, and talismans spell ACT. This means getting up and doing something. Magic is by nature active, but some processes are more complex than others. For time-pressed Pagans, charms are the fastest route. They only require a verbal component. That means you can recite your charm anywhere as needed. A charm attracts prosperity.
By comparison, amulets protect. Once contrived, an amulet remains on standby until called into action by circumstance, such as when your finances are in trouble. Once that problem resolves, the amulet “turns off” again. Where the charm drew energy, the Amulet turns away unwanted vibes.
Talismans have a lot in common with both charms and amulets as they usually include a verbal element combined with some type of physical item marked with magical sigils. The Talisman may also add the dimension of working at a propitious Astrological time. Depending on construction, the talisman can be either one of attraction or turning.
Spell Components for Portable Money Magick
Just as there were various ingredients for spellcraft, there are also those for periapt creation. The key difference here is at the end of your work, you have something wholly portable. That’s why the clever witch begins with small objects and items easily carried anywhere. Examples include:
- Battery: Charge up that energy
- Business Card: For business dealings and employment improvements
- Buttons: Button up the finances
