If you're new to witchcraft, trying spells for beginners is a good way to start to understand how spells work. Really, any easy spells would be fine for a beginner. Just don't be afraid to jump in and do some magick.
And just because these are spells for beginners, doesn't make them less powerful. They can be potent magick if you practice.
Knot Your Troubles
You can use this one no matter what your problem is. If you choose a color for the yarn to suit your purpose, you can fine-tune the spell to your particular situation. Just check a magickal color chart.
All you need for this spell is a piece of yarn in the appropriate colour, at least 12 inches long.
Now hold the yarn, with one end in each hand and pull it taut. Think about your problem (just one per spell, please). Concentrate on your difficult situation and start tying knots in the yarn. Visualize all your troubles getting bound up in the knots and trapped there. Keep tying until you feel it's enough.
Take the knotted yarn outside and bury it to keep your problems away.
Sprinkling of Protection
You can also find this spell on the easy spells page, but I wanted to include it as one of those great spells for beginners. All you need for this is:
• A handful of coarse salt
• A teaspoon of garlic powder
Don't try to cheat with commercial garlic salt either. This is magick, not cooking class. Mix together your salt and garlic, and sprinkle some of the mix on every point of entry to your home. That means doorsteps, windowsills and even vents if you have access to them. This will keep out any kind of negative energy that might follow you home. You can check the protection spells page for more like this one.
Two Halves Love Spell
An easy love spell that you can try as you are first learning about witchcraft. You have to get the following supplies:
• 1 red candle
• 1 white candle
• piece of paper and pen
Light each candle on your altar, or table where they won't be disturbed. On the paper, write the qualities you are looking for in a partner. Be realistic and keep the list to no more than 6 things.
Tear the paper in half, and burn one half in the red candle flame and the other half over the white candle. An ideal partner should soon come into your life.
These are just a few examples of spells that would suit a beginner witch. There are many more easy free spells all through the site. Of course, you don't have to limit yourself to simple spells just because you are a beginner.
And you can also get started with darker spells, with beginner black magic spells too.
