Farewell Spell


  • 1 white candle (or white stone)
  • 1 black candle (or black stone)
  • Picture of yourself
  • Picture of the other person
  • 17 inch black ribbon
  • Pin or needle
  • Black marker
  • White paint or liquid white-out (if using stones)
  • Scissors

Cast your magick circle and do your altar devotion. With a pin or needle, write your name on the white candle (or use the marker on the white stone). Write the other person's name on the black candle with the pin or needle (or use the paint/white-out on the black stone).

Tie one end of the black ribbon around the white candle. Tie the other end of the ribbon around the black candle. Set the candles apart until the ribbon stretches without any loops, but not so tight that you knock down the candles. Place your picture and the other person's picture underneath the ribbon, between the two candles.

Light the white candle and say:
"This candle represents me.
I ask for the help of Spirit in casting this spell."

Light the black candle and say:
"This candle represents (other person's name).
I ask for the help of Spirit in casting this spell."

Take a pair of scissors and hold them over the ribbon, and say:
"With these scissors I will cut this ribbon, which represents the mental and spiritual ties between myself and (other person's name). May we neither be harmed nor alarmed at this separation."

Take a deep breath, then cut the ribbon with the scissors.

Move the two pictures to the center of the altar side by side. Put the white candle on top of your picture, and the black candle on top of the other person's picture. Let the candles burn for three minutes. During these three minutes, close your eyes and imagine you and the other person happily walking away from each other. Open your eyes. Move the two candles and the two pictures two inches apart. Let the candles burn for three more minutes. Do the same visualization. Now, move the candles and the pictures another inch apart. Repeat the visualization. Finish the spell by saying:
"With harm to none.
May all astrological correspondences be correct for this working, and may this spell not reverse or place upon me any curse.
So mote it be!"

Thank Spirit for helping you in this situation, then snuff out the candles.

The next evening, go through the same process of lighting the candles, then separating them. First two inches more, then an inch, and finally, another inch. Repeat this process for three to seven days. If the other person walks away from you within the first three days, thank Spirit again for helping you, then remove the ribbons and the candles from your property. If the person does not walk way, continue until the seven-day span has concluded, thank Spirit, and dispose of the items.

If the person has not moved away from you in thirty days, repeat the spell until they do.
