If you’re feeling lonely, this moon spell for love can help you forge a path for a worthwhile partner to follow and find you. Finding a suitable romantic partner is a challenge in any era of history, and dating during a pandemic presents its own unique difficulties. It’s much harder to connect with new people without the ordinary options of hitting the town, checking out the clubs, or going to networking events and parties. If we want to find new love in the midst of this current crisis, we have to find new ways to adapt, connect, and socialize while maintaining social distance. Open yourself up to opportunities to connect with others online or through video calls, and cast this moon spell to help bring more love into your life.

You’ll need three candles for this spell: a white candle for the moon, a candle in your favorite color to represent yourself, and a candle to represent the partner you are hoping to meet. Place the unlit candles before you with the white one at the center, and focus your eyes on this center candle as you focus your thoughts on the moon. Ask for the powers that you feel the moon encapsulates and symbolizes to be present and to join you in your spell. Think of how this hunk of minerals and metals is able to bring so much illumination to our nighttime simply by providing a space on which the sunlight may reflect upon us.

Next, light the candle you’ve chosen to represent yourself, and think of your own ability to brighten up the lives of those around you. Think of the love that you would give to the worthy partner you desire. Imagine the space within your body and the field of electromagnetic energy that surrounds you opening up, providing a clear channel through which the vibrations of love may stream.

Now light the white center candle for the moon, with the flame of the candle that represents yourself. Then use the flame of the white candle to light the candle that represents the partner you wish to find. Bring the candles close together, then loosely circle them all in length of string, making three loops around them. Speak this verse or create your own, feeling the meaning of the words in your heart and soul as you wrap the string around the candles:

This love I show you, bright as gold,
Shine on someone to behold!

This love I give to you to mold;
Send it back to me threefold!

Give my love a road to travel;
Weave the webs of fate unraveled!
Bring me one that’s meant for me;
Bring me love that’s meant to be!

Extinguish the candles and bind them tightly together with the string, tying it off with six knots. Light the three candles and allow them to burn for three minutes on every full moon until love finds its way to you.
