For every situation that exists and every wish in need of fulfillment, there is a corresponding magic spell. Spells for love, spells for money and spells for health are among the most popular for both professional and amateur practitioners. But the value of any spell lies not in the casting, but in the results. Sometimes spells work and sometimes they do not. Sometimes they can be re-cast with success and sometimes a spell just won’t work. Nothing in life or magic is certain. However, there are a few things you can do once a spell is cast to determine whether or not a spell is working.

Determine if a Spell is Working

Check the calendar. Some spells take one lunar month, or 28 days, to go into effect. Additionally, the phase of the moon at the time of the casting will have some influence of the effectiveness of the spell and the overall outcome, depending on what the spell was for.

Perform a divination. Use a deck of cards or a pendulum to ask the powers that be about the progress of the spell. Inquire about the status of the current situation as well as things that can be done to bring the spell to full fruition.

Pay attention to the environment and current surroundings. Often when a spell is in progress the universe sends signs, signals and omens to the spell caster. Patterns will present themselves as information becomes available relating to the status of the situation in question. Additionally, a dream journal should be kept as information may be more readily accessed by the subconscious mind.


Re-examine the spell. If more than a month has passed with no visible results, the spell may need to be recast. Evaluate the spell and determine what variables may need to be changed in order to bring about the desired outcome.

Evaluate the ultimate goal of the spell. A spell that is too vague in focus is less likely to be effective than one with a very specific aim.


  • Keep in mind that even with an authentic formula, followed to the letter, a magic spell may not work. The universe may have different plans for your life.
