Spells & Charms

Words have power. To speak spells, you need to embody your words with magic. While spells are often in Latin, there’s no rule they have to be. Any language will do. The magic doesn’t come from the spell itself but the power of your voice, the direction of your intent, and the grasp you hold on your magic.

Have a look at these simple spells and give it a go. If you have power over your words, a spell will form.

Globus Igneus: a ball of green fire

Erit Lux: a sudden and bright light

Scintilla: a harmless spark

Scutum Protecto: a protective shield

Did any of these work for you? Congratulations! You’re a witch. Time to study vocabulary and pronunciation to make your spells effective…
