Hekatean Banishing Candle Spell
This spell was inspired by Protection and Reversal Magic by Jason Miller and The Moon Book by Sarah Faith Gottesdiener.
It is more suited for emotional blocks, trauma, and negative thought complexes than for entities, people, etc. The spell is ideally cast on a Monday night during the hour of the Moon, during a waning moon. The Moon was waning in Cancer when I cast it.
Carve what you are banishing into a black candle. If you don’t have black, use white. Carve downwards.
Drop magical oil into your hands. I used:
- Banishing Oil
- Mandrake Oil
- Datura Oil
I chose mandrake oil to help connect with Hekate, and because Mandrake is an ally. I chose datura oil because Datura is also an ally, and I associate Datura with death, the moon, healing, and transformation.
Rub your oiled hands together and then rub the candle between them. Speak the following words, and visualise your words entering and charging the candle in the form of each of the elements in turn:
By fire, the burning soul of the Goddess [Hekate], I banish ___ . Fire, burn this energy off of me and purify it.
By water, the flowing blood of the Goddess [Hekate], I banish ___ . Water, wash this energy off of me and purify it.
By air, the living breath of the Goddess [Hekate], I banish ___ . Air, clear away this energy and purify it.
By earth, the body of the Goddess [Hekate], I banish ___ . Earth, absorb this energy and purify it.
Place the candle on a fire-safe surface and light it while saying:
By the secret names Aktiophis, Ereshkigal, and Neboutosoualeth, I banish ___. By my own power, ___ is banished.
Meditate as the candle burns. Do what feels right for you.
