What To Do On These Days

On lucky days, it’s best to cast your luck charms to improve your chances of something truly amazing happening to you.

These are also the days to really do some manifestation magick, law of attraction work, or sigils.

On unlucky days, your best bet would be to cast protective magick and regularly ground and cleanse yourself.

Bring crystals with you to help block bad energy, too.

The book also says that if you fall ill on the first day of a month, be careful until after the third day of that month.

If you pass that day, then all should be fine.

If you fall ill on the second day, however, the illness might not be serious but you may be confined to your bed for a while!

Are These Days Really Unlucky?

In my opinion and experience, luck is something that can be bent but not broken.

So unlucky days can be made to be better by behaving in specific ways, like protecting yourself with crystals.

Or, lucky days can be made unlucky by behaving recklessly.

You can be more lucky every day by doing things like:

Seizing all opportunities. Go out of the house, accept new offers for having fun or going someplace new. Get out there!

Remembering that there is no such thing as a coincidence in witchcraft and magic.

Listen to your gut. If something feels wrong or bad, avoid it. Intuition isn’t magic, it’s actually a honed skill. Going with your gut more often helps to train yourself when your hunches are right or wrong.

Good Luck Rituals

Enhance your luck and attract positive outcomes on lucky days by performing rituals, spells, and practices that invite abundance and prosperity into your life. Here are some luck rituals you can try:

Good Luck Candle Spell Using Herbs

Attract good fortune into your life by performing a simple candle spell that harnesses the power of magical herbs. Select herbs that resonate with you, and use them to create a lucky aura around yourself.


  • 1 white candle
  • Herbs for luck (choose from vervain, pine, lemongrass, peppermint, or poppy)
  • 1 sachet bag
  • Matches or lighter


  1. Begin by arranging your chosen herbs around the base of the white candle. Reserve a small portion of the herbs to be used later in the sachet bag.
  2. Light the candle using matches or a lighter, and take a moment to focus on your intention for attracting good luck.
  3. Close your eyes and visualize a golden light surrounding you, the candle, and the herbs. Imagine this light drawing positive energy and opportunities towards you.
  4. Once you feel a strong connection to the energy of luck, carefully pack the reserved herbs into the sachet bag.
  5. Recite the following affirmation or create one of your own: “With plant magic, I draw luck to me. For abundance, prosperity, and blessings, so mote it be.”
  6. Allow the candle to burn out naturally and safely. Carry the sachet bag with you to draw good luck and blessings wherever you go.

Invoking Goddess Fortuna

Goddess Fortuna, the Roman deity of fortune and prosperity, can be invoked through prayer to bestow her blessings upon you. A simple and heartfelt prayer to this goddess can open the doors to abundance.


“Goddess Fortuna, lady of abundance and blessings, Guide my path and bestow your graces upon me. Bring me luck in all my endeavors, great and small, And shower me with the good fortune and success that I seek. Blessed be.”

Spend a moment in quiet meditation after reciting the prayer. Allow yourself to feel the presence and blessings of Goddess Fortuna.

Harnessing the Power of Lucky Herbs

Magical herbs have been used for centuries to bring luck and protection. Each herb has its unique attributes and properties that can enhance your magical practice.


Vervain is known for its ability to amplify the effects of other herbs. It is believed to offer protection against headaches and snakebites when worn around the neck. For wealth and luck, burn vervain leaves in your sacred space.


Pine trees symbolize health and prosperity, especially during challenging times. Burn pine needles and pine cones in your hearth to cleanse your home from negativity and to invite wealth and protection.


Lemongrass is celebrated for its ability to dispel negative energy and elevate mood. It aids in manifestation and transforms misfortune into good luck. Use lemongrass in spells that clear obstacles and create opportunities.


Peppermint brings luck to communication and speech. Whether you are delivering a speech or casting a spell, peppermint strengthens your voice. Carry it in your pocket to overcome obstacles on your journey to success.

Poppy (Yellow Poppy):

Yellow poppy symbolizes wealth and success. Carry poppy seeds with you to attract spiritual luck, enhance psychic awareness, and invite fertility into your life.

Remember, intention plays a key role in the success of any magical practice. Approach these rituals with a positive mindset and an open heart to invite good fortune into your life.

Protective Practices for Unlucky Days

Unlucky days may sometimes bring negative energy or misfortune into your life. However, you can protect yourself and turn your luck around through specific protective magick practices, rituals, and charms. These practices are designed to ward off bad luck, cleanse your energy, and create a shield against negativity.

Sweeping Ritual (Barrida)

The sweeping ritual, also known as “barrida,” is a traditional practice rooted in Mexican folk magic. It is designed to cleanse your aura and remove negative energies that may be affecting your luck.

For this ritual, you’ll need red string, a bundle of fresh herbs, and holy or floral water. The red string symbolizes protection, and the fresh herbs are chosen for their cleansing properties. Herbs like holy basil (for purification), chamomile (for calming energy), and lemon balm (for healing) are commonly used. Holy water is used for spiritual cleansing, while floral water, such as rose water, adds a layer of love and positivity.

Performing the Barrida

Begin by bundling the chosen herbs together with the red string, creating a herbal bouquet. Next, take another piece of red string and wrap it around your dominant hand, crossing over your palm. This symbolic gesture helps prevent negative energy from reentering your body during the ritual.

Once your hand is wrapped, sprinkle the herbal bundle with your chosen water. State your intention for the ritual, asking that all good luck remains, and all bad luck is swept away. Sitting or standing comfortably, hold the herbal bundle and begin sweeping it down your body in a downward motion, starting from the head and moving to the feet. Focus on areas like the head, neck, and shoulders, as these are common areas where tension accumulates.

When you feel the ritual is complete, thank the plants for their assistance. Safely dispose of the herbal bundle outside your home, and wash your hands to symbolically cleanse away any residual energy.

Candle Magic

Candle magic is another powerful practice to cleanse away bad luck and invite positivity. The tools for this ritual include a new and clean white candle, lemongrass essential oil, red string, and a small white plate. The white candle represents purity and light, while lemongrass oil has strong cleansing properties.

Performing the Candle Magic Ritual

Start by wrapping the red string around your hand in the same manner as the barrida ritual. Take the white candle and state your intention, asking for your bad luck to be cleansed and good luck to shine through. Carefully sweep the unlit candle down your body, starting from the head and ending at the feet, visualizing it absorbing all negative energy.

Anoint the candle with the lemongrass essential oil, which reinforces the cleansing process. Affix the candle to the white plate and light it, reiterating your intention. Allow the candle to burn down completely as you meditate on your intention.

Limes to Cleanse the Home

Cleansing your home is essential to maintaining a positive and harmonious environment. To cleanse your home using limes, you’ll need a white plate, coarse sea salt, an odd number of limes, whole cloves, and a knife. Limes are associated with purification, cloves with protection, and salt with grounding and cleansing.

Performing the Lime Cleansing

Wash and dry the limes, then make two cuts in each one without cutting all the way through. Press three whole cloves into each lime’s flesh. Place a generous layer of salt on the plate and nestle the limes into it, with the cut side facing up. Cover the limes with more salt.

State your intention, asking the limes to absorb all negative energy in your home. Place the plate in a central location and leave it for one week. Observe the condition of the limes to assess the energy of your home. If they dry up, the energy is clear. If they rot or darken, consider further cleansing practices.

Crystals for Enhancing Luck and Protection

Harnessing the power of crystals can help you attract good fortune and provide protection against negativity. Crystals carry unique vibrational energies that can be utilized to enhance luck on fortunate days and offer protection on challenging ones. In this section, we’ll explore a selection of crystals known for their abilities to enhance luck and offer protection, along with instructions on how to use them.

Carry Green Jade in your pocket or place it in your workspace to invite prosperity and protection.

Citrine: Good Vibrations

Citrine is a sunny and radiant stone known for bringing good luck and positive vibrations. Often referred to as the lucky merchant’s stone, Citrine radiates joy and abundance, making it a popular choice for those seeking to attract wealth and prosperity. Its high vibrational energy is associated with the solar plexus and sacral chakras, which are centers of creativity and personal power. Use Citrine to enhance your optimism, unlock your creativity, and manifest good luck into your life.

Green Aventurine: Financial Stability

Green Aventurine, affectionately known as “gambler’s gold,” is a stone of unbridled luck and abundance. Its name stems from the Latin word for chance, and it has a strong reputation for attracting success and good fortune. Green Aventurine is not just about taking risks; it also serves as a stabilizing stone for financial well-being. Use Green Aventurine to invite financial success and to create stability in your financial endeavors.

Black Tourmaline: Powerful Protection

Black Tourmaline is renowned for its powerful protective and grounding properties. It excels at dispelling negative energy and creating a shield around the wearer, offering robust protection against negativity and misfortune. On unlucky days, Black Tourmaline is especially useful for warding off harmful influences. Carry Black Tourmaline as a protective amulet, or place it near the entrance of your home to create a barrier against negativity.

Labradorite: Enhancing Intuition and Luck

  2. Working With Hekate During The Full Moon

    During the full moon, we call upon Hekate to assist us in clearing our past, releasing our fears, and opening ourselves to new possibilities. We ask her to help us gain clarity in our lives, to help us transform our inner worlds, and to allow us to move forward with courage and confidence.

    It is said that Hekate helps us to overcome obstacles and challenges that stand in our way, and to achieve our goals. In addition to being a benevolent Goddess, she is also a fierce warrior. When we summon her, we invite her to help us take charge of our lives, to lead us into battle, and to fight for justice.

    I am an eclectic witch - I've been practicing since 1974. As a student of the occult, working with astrology, tarot cards, runes, and numerology, I found that this was a very comprehensive and well written text on working with Hekate during the full moon. Highly recommended. - Gail Sager

    Great read - a must have for anyone interested in working with the Goddess during the full moon! Highly recommended! - Luis Meyer
