Spinner


Spinning By The Light Of The Moon

The Spinners live primarily in Europe under dolmens, in caves, forests, fairy forts, coastal swells, hollow hills, and where there are megaliths. They appear human size or tiny, awesomely beautiful, ghostlike, with luminous pale skin and hair when
they spin at night from the distaff (point) of the moon. The Spinners carry distaffs, spindles, scissors, stones, yarn, and needles; reward hard workers; and punish the lazy. They spin faery tales and dreams, foretell the future, and help with childbirth.


For this spell, you will need three twelve-inch lengths of white yarn and three white stones. Choose three specific dreams that you would like to see come to
fruition in the next year. These need to be doable dreams, the ones you feel strongly about.
Take the first piece of yarn and wind it around the first white stone. As you do so,
envision your first dream and see it coming to fruition. Imagine the steps you will
take or events that will occur that lead to your dream coming true. As you wind
and imagine, chant:

Spinner Ladies, please bless my dreams.
And weave them into my reality.

After you finish winding, tie the last bit of yarn in a knot to keep it secured around the stone. Wind the other two pieces of yarn around their respective stones while envisioning their relating dream and repeating the chant.
When you are done tying up the three stones, say the following:

Spinner Ladies, weave the magic of the moon,
Into my dreams so they come true soon.
In the Ladies' names, so mote it be!

Spend a few minutes imagining your dreams coming true in the next year and how you will feel when they do. When you are done, thank the Spinners. Put the stones
in a drawer or somewhere safe until your dreams come true.

I had never heard of spinner ladies. How interesting! The only thing close is the legend of the "Moonspinners" who spin down the full moon every month. (Learned it from the book "The Moonspinners" by Mary Stewart (loved it).

This sounds like very powerful magic and I love the picture too. I wonder who the old lady was?
