The Anatomy Of A Spell: What Is A Spell And How Can You Write Your Own?

Please note that posts on this site may contain affiliate links

Do you want to learn how to write spells? Do you have a specific need that no spell has ever been written to address?

First, what is a spell? A spell is the method by which one brings about their desires in reality, often taking the form of spoken words, mixed ingredients, and prayers to deities. A spell can be as simple as one word and as elaborate as a high magick ritual that can take hours or even days to fully complete.

Whether you’re trying to learn how to make a spell for love or how to write magick spells to make an original eclectic witch book of shadows, there are some easy templates you can follow. You just need to know the anatomy of a spell to create your own powerful witches spells.

The Anatomy Of A Spell

Do you know what ingredients should go into a spell? For instance, could you make a love spell with honey and cinnamon? How would you use jasmine in a spell?

What phase of the moon is correct for prosperity magic or luck spells? Do you know any real magic words of power?

You can improve your magickal practice with spells that fit your needs, desires, and your unique symbolic library.

Learning magick is all about doing magick, so let’s figure out how to write a great spell.

The Anatomy of A Spell

What Is The Purpose Of Your Spell?

When you’re writing a magick spell, you need to know what your ultimate intention is.

You’ll want to decide how detailed your spell should be as well as what your goal is.

You should think about the different ways a spell affects the material world, the magical and mundane.

So to discover the anatomy of a spell, you need to ask these questions:

  • What does the spell do to the world?
  • How does it work?
  • What is the spell’s impact on yourself?

This last question may seem silly; however, it’s one of the key ingredients of magick.

If you get right down to it, magick is about how things work.

Magick is the art of controlling our actions and perception in a powerful way.

Magic works best when you apply that control in a subtle way to your everyday life and to the world around us.

So, if you want a simple magick spell for beginners, you probably only want two or three ingredients and maybe a simple rhyme to set your intention.

You can even go as simple as reciting your incantation over the flame of a candle.

If you want something more elaborate, you may be mixing oils and herbs, finding the right candle color, deciding the right phase of the moon and time of day for your spell, and setting up a specific choreography of movements and incantations.

Spell Ingredients And Correspondences

Spells are made up of many components that hold intentions, release energy, give your spell power, or hold power.

What you choose to include in your spell will ultimately change how that spell behaves. This is based on their correspondences. For instance, a lemon spell could work with the lemon’s many correspondences.

The basic spell components are these:

Spell ComponentPurpose
An intentionThis is what guides your spell. It is your desire, put into words. Your intention will tell you what other correspondences you should choose.
Moon PhaseThe phase of the moon has magical correspondences. For instance, spells for fertility are best done during a waxing moon. Spells to banish should be done during a waning or new moon.
Time of yearJanuary has very different magical energy than March or October. Each month and season has its own energy that can be used to make your spells more powerful.
Day of the weekLike the time of the year above, the day of the week also has its own energy.
Time of dayLike the day of the week above, the time of day also has its own energy.
HerbsHerbal magic is one of the most popular forms. Potions, kitchen witchery, and magical teas use the correspondences of herbs.
CrystalsCrystals all hold different kinds of energy. They also have magical correspondences. Plus, you can use a crystal to hold onto a spell, especially if it is on a piece of jewelry.
Essential oilsEssential oils are similar to herbs in their magical uses. Aromatherapy is actually a very potent form of magic, so approach these oils with care and respect.
Carrier oilsWhen using essential oils, carrier oils allow for proper dilution before wearing your mixed scents.
CandlesCandle magic uses smoke and flame to empower your spells and send your intentions out into the universe. Candle magic also relies on color correspondences.
Color themesEach color puts off a different vibration. While the meaning of a color does change from culture to culture, that doesn’t make color correspondences less important or powerful.
DeitiesNot every witch works with deities, but when approached with respect and reverence, deities can help a spell succeed.
SymbolsSymbols can be something everyone recognizes, like a pentacle, or they can be something deeply personal like a sigil.
Something to create powerUsually, the thing that creates power is you and your actions.
Something to hold powerCrystals, jewelry, dolls, knots, and statues are just a few things that hold onto power for long lasting or timed release spells.

You can use as many of those components as you like in your spell, based on your intention and how elaborate you want your ritual to be.

Choose An Intention

This is the purpose of your spell. Intentions can be anything from finding love to manifesting money.

You want to be as specific as you can, because magickal energy can tend to spread too thin to be of any use if you go for something general.

For instance, it’s better to ask for a raise at your job than just to ask for more money.

Asking to heal your liver is better than asking to feel better.

Boil your intention down until it’s as strong as specific as you can manage.

Also, resist the urge to translate your intention into another language. While there are ancient words that give power to magic, your simple Google translate job probably won’t help much.

You can’t work good magic with an intention that you don’t understand. Witches spells in TV shows and books may work that way, but they don’t work that way in real life.

The Anatomy of A Spell

Perform Your Spell Under The Right Moon Phase

The phase of the moon directly effects how powerful your spell will be. Here are the general meanings:

New moon: This is the time for new beginnings. Magick to take advantage of the clean slate is best now. Start new projects, start a new exercise program, gather your thoughts, execute plans.

Waxing crescent moon: Set your intentions now. Send out your hopes and desires. This is a good time to start law of attraction magick.

First quarter moon: Kick down obstacles. Now is the time to take action and push forward.

Waxing gibbous moon: This is a time to reexamine the intentions you’ve set and realign them with the universe. This is also when you want to work to bring in money and prosperity.

Full moon: This is the time to reap the rewards of the spells you did in the previous cycle or previous months. This is also the time to do charging spells, and to enhance your psychic energy.

Waning gibbous moon: This is a time of introspection and giving thanks. It’s also the right time to expel negative energy and banish curses.

Third quarter moon: Release and let go of bad habits. Clear out junk and focus on self care spells.

Waning crescent: The time for cleansing. Cleanse the house with holy water or sage. Recuperate and rest. Feel and enjoy the coming emptiness. Release things in your life that aren’t helpful.

Time Your Magic To The Seasons Of The Year

Each month has its own energy, and that energy can empower or dampen the power of your magick.

January: This is the month to work on the root chakra, sexuality, basic physical needs. It’s also a time for new beginnings and fertility.

February: This is the month to cast spells for divination, ambition, aspirations, and balancing communication with emotion.

Reveal the truth with clarity spells. Work on the crown chakra.

March: This is the month for spells of reconciliation, anger management, and unresolved issues.

It’s also a good time for spells that make you more aggressive in the right areas, such as if you’re angling for a promotion.

Protection spells, dark magick, and retribution are also more powerful in March. Focus on the throat chakra.

April: This is a time of transformation, a time to take passion and turn it into manifestation.

Cast spells to banish stubbornness or to strengthen your backbone as you deal with difficult people.

May: May is the time for personal growth, illumination and wisdom.

You may be at risk for some neuroticism in May, so cast magick to unite logic with your emotions.

Magick to banish bad habits and strengthen your self esteem are called for. Focus on the heart chakra.

June: Fairy magick is powerful now. Work on magick that improves communication and movement, transformation, and spells that increase or decrease things in your life.

Focus on the solar plexus chakra.

July: Now is the time to find balance between your ego and your perseverence and organization.

Manifest leadership, banish indecisiveness. Cast spells for long term goals.

August: Reap the harvest of the magick you cast earlier this summer. Powerful, assertive magick should be cast now.

Cleanse yourself and your home before the coming winter. Clear out unwanted emotions and habits.

September: this is a time of feminine energy. Cast magick that draws inward, and magick to draw things to you. Magick that benefits women and female issues are very strong now.

Fertility and protection magick especially so. Cast spells to find lovers and soul mates. Focus on the third eye chakra.

October: This is the time for ancestral and spirit magick. Communicate with your ancestors, or the ancestors of the land that you are living on.

Cast spells for justice, balance, and political issues now. Cast spells to increase and strengthen your ambition.

November: Destroy all things that bind and hinder you at this time. Find freedom with your magick.

Cast spells for release, relief, emanicipation, individuality, and protection.

December: Cast magick to seek knowledge from spirits. This is also the time to reveal true feelings and shed light on dark situations.

As we transition to the new year, work magick that transitions you into your new, and improved, self.

Should You Use Herbal Magic?

Herbs and plants have elemental and magickal correspondences that help direct your energy and manifest desires.

Lavender spells, for instance, help with psychic power and enhance your astral travel or dreams. Meanwhile, oregano magical properties include protection, happiness and luck.

Or, if you do spells with lemon, you could be doing a sour jar curse or a spell to banish depression.

When doing herbal magic, remember that the most important part of the anatomy of a spell is your intention. Because herbs can have many different magical uses, and some of them are contradictory.

If you’d like to learn more about these correspondences, see my blog posts on them here: Elemental correspondences for herbs and plants

Pick The Right Magic Crystals

Crystals hold vibrational properties and the history of our world.

They are not just beautiful, but can be useful for manifestation, cleansing, blessing, healing, and dreams.

The Anatomy of A Spell

Carrier Oils For Your Essential Oils

Carrier oils are used with essential oils and sometimes herbs so that they are safe to get on your skin.

They also spread out the essential oil so that you can cover a whole candle without wasting your expensive essential oils.

An ancient carrier oil that was used in magick was olive oil, and it is still one of the best options around.

Learn Candle Magic

Colors play a really important role in our lives and our magick.

The colors lend a distinctive vibration and focus that can aid our intentions as we burn the candles.

I already have a blog post on the candle color meanings. I hope they will work positively within your witchcraft.

Candle ColorCandle Color Meaning
White candlesWhite candles, first and foremost, can be used for all magick. They are the blank sheet you can use when no other candle seems right, or you’re out of another candle color.
Black candlesBlack candles are perfect for banishing, absorbing negativity, protection, binding, destruction, cursing, chaos magick, and creating confusion.
Brown candlesChoose brown candles for home protection, animal spells, stability, family, material goods, grounding, emotional stability, balance, and trust.
Red candlesRed is a great choice for love spells, lust, vital energy, strength, passion, courage, charisma, energy, vigor, anger, eliminating pessimism, revenge, and determination.
Pink candlesUse pink candles for romantic love, emotional healing, friendship, caring, nurturing, self love, beauty, glamor spells, sensuality, compassion, forgiveness and reconciliation.
Orange candlesWith orange candles you can invoke ambition, creativity, and positivity and it is a great color for career spells or spells to assert your strength and individuality.
Yellow candlesYellow candles are the choice for spells for intelligence, success at school, communication, focus, and intuition.
Green candlesGreen candles are the perfect choice for money spells, but they can be used for spells of growth, health, luck, and nature too.
Blue candlesUse blue candles for peace, patience, emotional healing, manipulation, truth, justice, and to hide the truth from others.
Purple candlesPurple candles are great for psychic powers, divination, astral travel, wishes, ambition, power, and authority.
Silver candlesSilver candles are associated with the moon, and can be used for spells for psychic receptivity, love, rest, dreaming, healing, and represents goddesses.
Gold candlesGold candles are associated with the sun and are useful for spells of confidence, willpower, optimism, generosity, and this candle can be used to represent gods.

Choosing The Right Color Correspondences

Color correspondences don’t only have to be used through candles.

You can choose to mark your protective circle in a specific color, use specifically colored herbs, wrap your tools in a specific color cloth.

They can give an immensely powerful boost to your spells.

Here are a few different colors and their correspondences:

Red: Love, physical energy, health, power, anger

Pink: Romance, spiritual awakening, partnerships, children’s magic

Orange: Adaptability to sudden changes, encouragement, power

Yellow: Communication, confidence, divination, study, friendship

Green: Prosperity, employment, fertility, health, good luck, creativity

Blue: Healing, psychic ability, harmony in the home, understanding

Indigo: Meditation, clarity of purpose, spiritual healing, self-mastery

Purple: Divination, enhancing nurturing qualities, balancing sensitivity

White: Cleansing, clarity, establishing order, spiritual growth, understanding

Black: Banishing and releasing negative energies, transformation, enlightenment

Silver: Spiritual development, psychic development, meditation, warding off negativity

Gold: Success, health, ambition, finances, good fortune, divination

Brown: Balance, concentration, material gain, home, companion animals

Gray: Complex decisions, binding negative influences, reaching compromise

Working With Deities

The different gods and goddesses one might interact with all have different areas of life and magick that they rule over.

Ares rules over power, anger, and war. Aphrodite rules over love and lust.

Eris rules over chaos.

Appealing to a specific deity during a spell could lend you their favor, putting their power behind your intention as well.

It’s worth it to find a deity you like to work with for spells that matter a lot to you.

Witch Symbols In Magic

When you’re doing a protection spell, a pentacle can increase the protective properties of your magick.

A dollar sign symbolizes wealth and is great to use in abundance spells.

Finding symbols that universally represent a concept is a great start, but what is even more powerful is discovering and utilizing what those symbols represent to you.

When you see a triangle, what emotions or thoughts does that bring up?

When you see a simply drawn bird, what concept does that make you think of?

The most powerful symbol is the one that represents a powerful emotion or memory for you.

Add Power To Your Spells

Often, this is fire or an incantation.

This is something that helps to bring out and use the energy within you to enact your will on the universe.

It’s not technically creating power but digging deep within you and harnessing the power you have within yourself.

Pick Something To Hold Your Spell

This one isn’t always necessary, but this is where amulets, knots for knot magick, and things like potions come in.

These are the things that hold onto the spell you’ve created until you’re ready to use that magick.

If you’re creating a long term or timed release spell, you’ll want something to hold that power until you’re ready to release it, or indefinitely.


What is a spell?

A spell is a method by which one brings about their desires in reality, often taking the form of spoken words, mixed ingredients, and prayers to deities.

How can I learn to write spells?

You can learn to write spells by understanding the anatomy of a spell, which includes knowing the purpose of your spell, its impact on yourself and the world, and the correspondences of its components.

What are some basic components of a spell?

The basic components of a spell include an intention, moon phase, time of year, day of the week, time of day, herbs, crystals, essential oils, carrier oils, candles, color themes, deities, symbols, something to create power, and something to hold power.

How can I choose the right components for my spell?

To choose the right components for your spell, you need to know their correspondences. For example, the moon phase can influence the effectiveness of your spell, and different colors and herbs have their own magical properties.

What is the purpose of a spell’s impact on myself?

The purpose of a spell’s impact on yourself is to control your actions and perception in a powerful way. Magick is about how things work, and the more you can apply that control in a subtle way to your everyday life and to the world around you, the more effective your spell will be.

What is the anatomy of a spell?

The anatomy of a spell refers to its different components, such as the intention, correspondences of its ingredients, and its impact on both yourself and the world.

What is the impact of a spell on the material world?

The impact of a spell on the material world can vary depending on its intention. It may affect physical objects, situations, or even people, depending on what you want to achieve.

What Is A Spell And How Can You Write Your Own?

I hope this information has helped you on your path to being a master spell crafter.

Spells that you made yourself tend to be more powerful than those found in books or online, so this is a worthy endeavor for any intermediate to advanced witch looking for a new challenge.

I hope this has also helped you to gain an understanding and appreciation of various spell categories and the different types of spells.

  1. Working With Hekate During The Full Moon
  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
