Roses, associated with Venus, the Goddess of Love, and Water, the element of emotions, are a natural fit for Beltane, an ancient Celtic fire and fertility festival.
Ruling Planets: Venus (Damask Rose), Moon (White Rose), Jupiter (Red rose).
My shaman teacher once told me roses have the highest vibration of any flower. According to Connie and Ablan Higley, authors of Quick Reference Guide for Using Essential Oils, absolutely pure rose oil, expensive and nearly impossible to acquire, “has the highest measured frequency of any essential oil while Love has the highest frequency of all emotions.”
Magical Attributes of Roses
Roses can be used in spells and rituals for Love, Healing, Luck, and Protection.
Roses to Attract Love
Perform love magic on a Friday, the day of the week ruled by Venus. Use red roses for passion, pink for romance, orange for attracting love, and white for pure love. While performing any of the following, ask the Universe to bring the right person (specify gender) to you at a time when that is optimum for both of you. Love spells should not be rushed and should never be directed at a specific person.
Add rose petals (from the appropriate colored rose as described above) to your bath.
Wear rose hips or beads. For making rose beads, follow Melissa Breyer's steps outlined
on the Care2 make a difference website: http://www.care2.com/greenliving/rose-petal-beads.html#ixzz2SXIVX6Zj
· Place a rose on your altar. Make a list of the qualities you seek in a lover/boyfriend/girlfriend. Do NOT direct your spell at a specific person! Place the list beneath the vase containing the rose.
Spell to Enhance Existing Love
For Love already strong and true,
May all that is good between me and you,
Grow stronger with each day and night,
Enhancing our Love, and our Passion ignite.
May the joy and passion of Beltane help you find love or enhance existing love!
