I received Llewellyn’s 2021 Witches’ Spell-A-Day Almanac as a Xmas present and am loving it. In addition to the daily spellwork it’s also a daily calendar, showing what phase the moon is in that day and noting important holidays (traditional and Wiccan).
Today’s Moon is in the sign of Virgo which, according to the Almanac: “Favors cooperation, compromise, social activities, beautification of surroundings, balance, and partnership.” The color for Janury 31, 2021 is yellow and the Incense of the Day is almond. But it’s the Daily Spell that I thought was pretty cool and simple enough that anyone can do it! It also reminded me of the “finger-pointing” scene in Practical Magic:

Throughout the day, use your pointer finger to charge, bless, and otherwise designate objects as auspicious. Feel the intended energy and forcefully project it forward. Cast luck on a fountain you admire, or cast love on an elevator button. Fill a parking meter for the day to share pointed blessings of wealth, or enchant any other object you’d like. As the energy of the sun wanes, make your final blessed castings and seek to dream of all the luck and opportunities yet to come to you. Try to point them out even in your dreams.
(Of course, this is a beatific spell and can be performed any day of the year.)
