Coffee is one of those things that so many of us drink and don't give a second thought to. But like anything, if we put intentions behind it, it becomes magical.
Even without intentions and incantations, coffee is pretty magical, especially on those days when you just can't get started or focused. Then you pour or purchase yourself a cup and let the steamy brew work its magic as it wakes up your mind and body.
As busy witches, I realize it's much easier to grab a morning Starbucks on the way to work, but for coffee magick to be more personal and powerful, it's worth preparing your own.
But either way, you can use a cup of brewed coffee, and even coffee beans and grounds, to stir up some daily magic. The best part is, these magical workings don't take a lot of time, which is great for us lazy...I mean busy witches. :P

two simple coffee spells
to add magic to your day
Incorporate this simple coffee spell into your morning ritual. It's quick, easy, and is a positive way to start your day.
Stirring in All Good Things
As you stir your coffee in a clockwise direction, envision something good happening to you by the end of the day or think of a few qualities you'd like to infuse your day with. Maybe you'd like happiness, laughter, and love or creativity and passion. Continue stirring as you envision these things and think or say out loud, "These things I draw to me as I drink this cup of magic coffee." You may wish to blow your breath (filled with those intentions) into the coffee cup before sipping.
Rainbow Light Spell
This coffee enchantment is adopted from Llewellyn's Spell a Day.
Cup your hands around your cup of coffee and envision it glowing with rainbow colors: first red, then orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, and white. When you're ready, put your nose to the cup and inhale deeply, letting all the light fill your body. Then think or say, "May this libation fill my body, my mind, and my spirit. May I be awake, aware, and blessed this day (or use your own words if you'd like to call in different things). Amen, a'ho, and so it is."
