SpellCrafting: Money Rice  

With the land lush and green in the Northeast, it felt like a good time to make a batch of green money rice. I got the idea from a video posted by Witch the Raven on TikTok and was waiting for the right time. July’s dark moon in Cancer after heavy rains that left the world smelling rich and earthy was that time.

To make it, put dry rice in a bowl, add green food coloring and stir to coat. To that, Witch the Raven added salt, basil, cinnamon, and chamomile. After mixing, she added patchouli essential oil and stirred again. 

When I made mine, I forgot all about the salt. I was moved to also add peppermint, dried patchouli, some money powder made a dozen years ago with my first coven, and chips of green aventurine, green moss agate, and citrine. I stirred it clockwise until well blended, then buried three small bay leaves attached to one stem.  

Holding the small bowl in both hands, I charged it with intention. These are the words I found myself saying, but use those that come to you.

   Under this dark moon in Cancer
   May this be the answer
   For needs of money, abundance and wealth

   For daily living, and for health
   For my highest good and greatest joy
   With harm to none
   The spell’s begun
   And as I say so it shall be

Because the weather is so humid, and to let everything marry, I will leave the bowl on my altar and stir it from time to time during the next few days. I will be adding some of this money rice to my pocketbook, using it to refresh a money charm purse, and storing the rest to use as needs arise, as well as to gift to others. 


About the author:
All my life I have known magic was real. As a child, I played with the fae, established relationships with trees and “just knew things.” In my maiden years I discovered witchcraft and dabbled in the black-candles-and-cemeteries-at-midnight-on-a-fullmoon magick just enough to realize I did not understand its power. I went on to explore many practices including Zen, astrology, color therapy, native traditions, tarot, herbs, candle magic, gems, and, as I moved into my mother years, Buddhism, the Kabbalah and Reiki. The first man I dated after my divorce was a witch who reintroduced me to the Craft, this time by way of the Goddess. It was like coming home to myself. I have been in multiple covens, some virtual. As an eclectic solitary practitioner, I travel the country in a converted school bus and share magick with those I meet. Find me at https://thewitchonwheels.com/ and on Facebook.
