A Spell to Get Over Someone


spell to get over someoneWhether you’re broken-hearted after a break-up, or whether you have an unrequited crush, this spell will help you get over the person you’ve been pining over. This spell should be performed during a waning moon.

You will need:

  • A picture of the person you want to get over (if you don’t have this, you can use a piece of card cut into the shape of a person, with their name on it)
  • A piece of ginger root
  • A black cloth
  • A black cord

Wiccan Spell to Get Over A Person

To begin, cast your circle. Call upon your spirit guides, angels, or any deities whose aid you wish to have in performing the spell. Meditate for a few minutes in silence.

Now hold the ginger root in your hand, and think about your feelings for the person. Whether you feel pain, longing or anger – whatever feeling you have, let it rise fully in your body. Make the feelings even more intense (don’t worry – this will help, as you need to feel your feelings fully before letting them go). Now project all of those feelings into the piece of ginger. Let the ginger absorb all of your pain, anger and longing. If you feel the need to cry, or to shout in anger, do so. Bring up these feelings or as long as you need to, until you feel them becoming less strong and eventually fading away. This may take ten minutes, or it may take an hour. Let it take the time it takes.

Once you have done this, wrap up the ginger root in the black cloth together with the photo of the person you want to get over. Tie the black cord around it, securing it with three knots, and say:

My heart is now unchained,
My heart is strong and free,
No more shall I pine for you,
With this binding, so mote it be.

Bury the bundle in the ground, and know that as it decomposes into the earth, the emotional hold that the person had over you shall also fade, and you will get over them completely.
