Love, Love, Love

Saludos (greetings), with Valentines Day just around the corner I felt a love spell would be in order. Did you know that in ancient Rome, February 15 was Lupercalia, the festival of Lupercus, the god of fertility? During this time they held a purification ritual. The priests of Lupercus would sacrifice goats and a dog to the god, after drinking wine they would run through the streets hitting everyone with pieces of the goat skin. Women would actually try really hard to be slapped with this stinky goat skin because they believed it would make them fertile.....hmmmm, interesting, but think I’ll pass on that, thanks.....

Hummingbird (Chuparosa) Love Spell
You will need:
2 red taper candles
1 white plate
1 photo each of yourself and the target person
3 photos of a hummingbird (you can print these from the net)
Honeysuckle oil
Attraction oil
2 Red dressmakers pins
Red ink pen
1 small magnet
1 small felt or cotton pouch (large enough for the magnet)

Take the white plate and dress the bottom of the plate with the honeysuckle oil, now dress the rim of the plate with the same oil, each time applying the oil with your marriage finger. Even though you may not be looking for marriage at this time you should still use the marriage finger since it represent commitment. With one of the red dressmakers pins carve the name of the target person on one of the red candles. The name should begin at the bottom of the candle and end towards the top. When you’re finished inscribing the name of the person dress their candle with attraction oil. Make sure to apply the oil from the bottom of the candle to the top near the wick. Take the pin you used to carve this candle and stick it in the candle about 1 inch from the top and set the candle aside. In a love spell, this area of the candle represents the “heart” of the person. Now take the other red candle and carve your name into the wax with the other red dressmakers pin. The inscription is written in the same direction....from the bottom to the top. When you’re done, dress your candle with the honeysuckle oil, again from the bottom to the top of the candle. Set the red dressmakers pin that you carved your name with aside. This does not get stuck into your candle! Now with the red ink pen and paper, write a short yet straight forward request of what you want from the target person.....marriage, dating, serious relationship, commitment, etc. now take the photos of yourself and the target person and dress the four corners of each photo with the attraction oil. Place the photos together facing each other and place one of the hummingbird photos on each side, facing inwards. So now you have your photo and the target person’s photo facing each other and a hummingbird on each side, all facing inwards. Get the red dressmakers pin you used to carve your name and use it to pin all the photos together. This stack of photos is placed underneath the white plate. Light each of the candles and allow some of the wax to drip on the plate so that the wax will hold your candle securely. Make sure to get enough wax on the plate so that there is no chance of the candles falling over later. Once you have done that, take the remaining hummingbird photo and place it on top of the plate, facing upwards. Now take the magnet and dress one side of it with attraction oil (target person) and the other side of it with honeysuckle oil (you) and place the magnet on the plate directly in the center of the hummingbird photo. Now recite the following hummingbird prayer. Here I give this prayer in both the Spanish and the English translations.

Al Poder de la Chuparosa
Divina Chupparosa,
tu que por el Poder divino
endulzas y alegras las cosas
quiero que endulces
mi vida y alegres mi corazon
ya que por tu divina intercession
he de venecar a mi amado(a)
y solo sea para mi
y asi como chupas la miel de las flores,
chupa la sal y mala suerte que tengo,
y asi en todo vencer,
novenario te he de hacer,
para que tu no me divides y me traigas
al ser amado fiel y lleno de amor.

Divine Hummingbird,
Who enriches and glorifies
Everything with your Holy Power,
I ask that you enrich my life and love
With your Divine Intercession
So that my lover
Will want only me.
In the same way that you extract honey from flowers,
Extract all misfortune and bad luck
From my life;
I pray you will not forget me,
So that my lover and I may share a relationship
That is honest and true

Allow the candles to burn out. Once they are consumed take the magnet on the hummingbird picture and place them in the small pouch. Carry this with you.

Until next time, bendiciones (blessings)
