“Believe in magic, because it’s real.
Believe in unicorns, fairies and elves, because why not?
Believe that you can do anything, because you can.
Believe that you are beautiful, because you are.
You are the author of your life, so whatever you believe is your choice, and yours alone.”
– Daily Love Cards by Olivine
When it comes to believing in magic and miracles, there is no symbol more iconic than the unicorn. Also a symbol of purity, protection, healing, intuition, granted wishes, and courtly love, the unicorn can be an excellent ally to invoke in your magical work. That is, if you (like me) are whimsical, eccentric, and stubborn enough to believe.
If you do count yourself among the believers, here are five unicorn spells you can try today.
Unicorn Purification Spell
This spell employs the unicorn’s potent power of purification to clear, balance, and activate your aura and chakras. First, place an attractive unicorn image on your altar or another flat surface. This could be a framed postcard, a small statue, or any other unicorn imagery that speaks to you. Close to the image, place a white rose and light a white votive candle. Sit comfortably in front of the image. Take some deep breaths and center yourself. When you feel ready, inwardly invoke the presence of a unicorn ally. Then generously mist your entire body and the area around your body with rose water. Feel and express gratitude to the unicorn. Repeat daily or as desired.
Unicorn Wish Granting Spell
Unicorns and apple trees are allies: they share a similar vibration and like to hang out near each other. For this wish granting spell, visit an (ideally secluded) apple tree with a bottle of cold champagne and a moonstone. Take a moment to relax and connect with the spirit of the tree, as well as its unicorn ally who is likely dwelling nearby, just beyond the veil. When you feel grounded and connected to the magical realm, safely open the champagne and pour it around the roots of the tree. Then, speak from your heart. Explain that you have come in the hopes of enlisting the unicorn’s help in granting your wish. If you feel a rush of positivity and love, that is an affirmative: the unicorn desires to grant your wish. So speak your wish aloud. Then feel and express gratitude, and place the moonstone by the base of the tree.
Unicorn Protection Charm
Because unicorns possess such a pure, bright, and positive vibration, they can be enlisted to powerfully shield us from harsh, unhealthy, and negative energy of all varieties. To create a highly protective charm, find a unicorn pendant that you love. (Not sure where to find such a thing? Try Etsy.) Empower it in bright sunlight at the stroke of noon, and the light of the full moon at the stroke of midnight, for at least five minutes each. Then wear it whenever you need an extra dose of positivity and protection.
Unicorn Intuition Activating Meditation
With a magical horn positioned precisely at the intuitive center (also known as the brow or third eye chakra), the unicorn is nothing if not psychic. To enlist a unicorn’s help in activating your intuitive abilities, relax, close your eyes, and envision yourself in a fairy forest. Journey deeper and deeper into the heart of the forest, knowing that as you do so, you are approaching a unicorn spirit guide. In time, you will make contact. When you do, get to know your guide: What does he or she look like? Where in the fairy forest does he or she like to hang out? What is his or her name? And what messages does he or she have for you about how to activate your intuitive gifts? When your communion with this magical, inter-dimensional creature feels complete, thank him or her with an offering or a gift. Whatever feels right to you will do, but unicorns have been known to enjoy apples, crystals, shiny objects, and bubbly drinks. In the future, you can consult with this guide to receive intuitive messages and learn how to further activate and calibrate your psychic and intuitive gifts.
Unicorn Healing Sachet
To support the physical and/or emotional healing of yourself or a loved one, fill a white cloth sachet with a rainbow quartz, nine apple seeds, and a tablespoon of angelica root. Tie closed with a rainbow-colored ribbon and anoint with essential oil of ylang ylang. Hold it in both hands and envision/sense/feel the powerfully positive, rainbow-colored energy of the unicorn realm. Feel that magic is real, miracles happen, and anything is possible, including a swift and complete recovery. Send this feeling into the charm.
