Chalice deep as a wishing well,
Our spirits blend as I chant my spell;
Love does come to fill our hearts,
By this spell the magick starts.
These words are recited during a spell that has a simple goal: "To fill that empty spot inside you that feels only loneliness without the fullness of new love." You can learn how to do spells like this, along with other magical methods for everything surrounding love, in Edain McCoy's beautiful book, Bewitchments.
If you don't have love in your life, you know you need it. There are lots of spells to bring that "certain someone" into your life! Once you have a romance going, you want to make it stronger and prevent anything (or anyone) from breaking it up. You'll find magical techniques to make sure your beloved thinks only of you and becomes disinterested in any potential rival. And finally, as you probably know, sometimes relationships need to end but drag on for a long time.
"Gather a handful of dried pumpkin seeds and take them outside to an area where you can bury them unseen and where they will remain undisturbed. Sit on the ground and, in front of you, dig a small hole. Begin to visualize the unwanted lover moving further and further away from you. As you do this, take a single pumpkin seed and bite down on it, then toss it into the hole. When you've gone through all the seeds, your mind's eye should see your life without the undesired person in it."
You will find divinations, incenses, oils, talismans, rituals, and spells that will put you in charge of your love life. They range from simple to complex, but you will find that you can do them all. If your love life needs some pep, this is the book for you.

About the Author
Edain became a self-initiated Witch in 1981 and has been an active part of the Pagan community since her formal initiation into a large San Antonio coven in 1983. Edain has researched alternative spiritualities since her teens, when she was first introduced to Kaballah, or Jewish mysticism. Since that time, she has studied a variety of magickal paths including Celtic, Appalachian folk magick, and Curanderismo, a Mexican-American folk tradition. Today, Edain is part of the Wittan Irish Pagan tradition, where she is a priestess of Brighid and an elder.
An alumnus of the University of Texas with a BA in history, she is affiliated with several professional writer's organizations and occasionally presents workshops on magickal topics or works individually with students who wish to study Witchcraft.
This former woodwind player for the Lynchburg (VA) Symphony claims both the infamous feuding McCoy family of Kentucky and Sir Roger Williams, the seventeeth-century religious dissenter, as branches on her ethnically diverse family tree. In her "real life," Edain works as a licensed stockbroker.
Edain is the author of fifteen books, including Bewitchments; Enchantments; and her most recent release, Ostara: Customs, Spells & Rituals for the Rites of Spring.
