This prosperity spell uses Earl Grey tea. The distinctive taste of this tea comes from the Bergamot orange (Citrus auratium bergamia), a bitter, pear-shaped citrus fruit that grows in Italy. Traditionally, bergamot is associated with prosperity and the return of riches. Perform this spell in the waxing phase of the Moon, the time of increase.

Gather the following supplies:

Earl Grey tea -- a saucer full of loose tealeaves is preferred *
Green Candle
Green altar cloth
Coins and currency from your wallet
Bergamot essential oil

Create sacred space according to your tradition.

Meditate on what prosperity means to you, being sure to reject the fears, doubts and negative beliefs that have stood in the way of your prosperous life.

Anoint the green candle, coins and currency with Bergamot essential oil. As you anoint the coins and currency, chant this simple increasing progression:

Where there’s one there’s two
Where there’s two there’s four
Where there’s four there’s eight
Where there’s much there’s more!

Focus your energy on abundance and drawing prosperity to you. Visualize having enough money, and a little bit more!

Hold the saucer of Earl Grey tealeaves cupped in your hands. Inhale the fragrance of the leaves and focus on the same visualizations as above.  Begin to chant, slowly and quietly, then growing faster and louder…

Bergamot, bergamot!
The money tree
Fills me with

When the tealeaves are filled with energy, end the spell with:

By the power of three times three
For the greater good,

End the ritual according to your tradition.

Each day, light the green candle and make a cup of Earl Grey tea from the empowered tealeaves.  As you drink your tea, continue your meditations on prosperity.

Over the years, there have been a few occasions where prosperity magick seemed necessary. Most times, when the spending begins to outrun the income, I work a simple spell with bergamot oil, annointing each bill in my wallet while chanting, "Bergamot, bergamot, money tree. Send this money back to me!" That seems to take care of everyday prosperity.

I am blessed by the Goddess with the prosperity I have in life. I never really complain about everyday money because I have all the material things I want and some to spare. Most times I can reach into my pocket and share half with someone in need, and never feel the lack.

Back in the early 1970's, Jannie and I, a couple of newly minted witches, went deep into the Enchanted Forest at midnight under a new moon, and buried a shilling at the crossroads. At the next full moon, we returned and dug it up. That was the beginning of this deeper prosperity that manifests itself in having just enough and a little to spare, and in having realistic wants.

The Enchanted Forest was a stretch of deep, old woods in the New England community where we lived. It had a stillness that was deeper than any other place we knew, and the forest had a mostly benevolent but watchful energy. It was a very old place, and it was filled with power.

When I moved here, a random drive took me down a road that shouldn't really exist, running parallel to a perfectly good other road, nestled deep within earthen banks, and filled with the same primal energy of the other Enchanted Forest. If you believe the signposts, this road is seven miles from anywhere.
