Spell for the New Year: The Nine Knots for Luck and Prosperity

2019 12 30 07.28.10 1 scaled - Spell for the New Year: The Nine Knots for Luck and Prosperity

It’s the end of 2019, a year that for some has been difficult, and for some it was prosperous, and for some others, it was a good balance of the two. I am hoping that for all of you it was a year that taught you who you were and prepared you for what is to come in 2020.

A couple of years ago I started a custom I always follow at the last day of each year. I cast a spell for the upcoming year to bring prosperity and success. I may not have full control of what is to come, but if customs are going around at this time of the year to avoid bad luck, then who said we can’t create one to bring good luck in the upcoming year?

In this blog post, I want to share with you all the spell I perform every 31st of December to kick off the new year.


  1. Frankincense
  2. Myrrh
  3. A piece of paper
  4. Three old keys
  5. Candles: Gold, Green and two white candles
  6. Red Ribbon
  7. Luck Oil or any other condition oil that you see fit
  8. Blessing Oil or any other condition oil that you see fit


1. Dress the white candles with the Blessing oil
2. Dress the gold and green candle with Luck oil
3. Write on a piece of paper the name of the person/s that are in the household along with their mother’s names (including yourself)
4. Drop a drop of blessing oil in each corner of the piece of paper
5. Drop three drops on the ribbon and each of the three keys
6. Light the two white candles
7. Light the incense (frankincense and myrrh)
8. As you light the gold candle say with your own words what the candle represents (prosperity)
9. As you light the green candle say with your own words what the candle represents (the materials things and success you are drawing towards you for the new year)
10. Wrap the ribbon around the three keys and tie nine knots chanting at each knot:

By knot of one, the spell’s begun
By knot of two, my spell comes true
By knot of three, so it will be
By knot of four, power I store
By knot of five, my magic is alive
By knot of six, this spell I fix
By knot of seven, this spell I leaven
By knot of eight, it is fate
By knot of nine, what’s wished is mine

11. Pass the keys with the tied ribbon three times through the incense smoke
12. Place them on the piece of paper with the names
13. Let the candles burn out completely
14. Just before the candles burn completely, burn the piece of paper with the fire from the candles
15. Spread the ashes in the streets
16. Bury the wax remnants from the candles in the garden or a pot with a flower
17. Hang the ribbon with the tied keys at the back of the entrance door

This spell has been hung on my front door for an entire year and I am looking forward to re-casting it for the next year. I hope the new year is prosperous and full of luck for you all!
