Today is the Romanian holiday of Dragobete. In addition to being considered the first day of spring and a day for honoring love and lovers, Dragobete is also a magical day for gathering plants for love magic as well as collecting snow to be melted and used in potions.
Today, obtain one red rose. Scatter its petals across a small baking sheet lined with parchment and bake for ten minutes at 275°F. Once the petals are cool, place them in a bowl and empower them in sunlight for a minute or two. (If there’s no sunlight available, you can just envision them being filled with golden white light.) Bundle the petals, along with a garnet, into a piece of red flannel. Tie it closed with ribbon or twine. Hold the charm to your heart and conjure up the ecstatic feeling of falling in love. Place the charm on your altar or sleep with it under your pillow until your new love has appeared.
