Witch Willow, is a practicing witch in England. Actually I came to find out that witch craft is not all dark arts but actually involves good spells like petitions for success and healing. Witch Willow is part of a series on BBC called “Witch School.” Like a real life Hogwarts for mystical students. Witch Willow is going to be working with my clients on my English tour. Here is a spell for success she gave me.

Knot Magic

The use of cords or strings in magic is very ancient, beginning with the cord magic practiced by Egyptian magicians, to the knot charms used by medieval witches to loose storms. Cords still play a large part in modern day Witchcraft and are used in a variety of form from Handfastings (marriage rituals) and Initiations. A common use is in spell casting.

Cord (or knot) magic is a simple, yet effective way to work magic. The only thing you need to do this kind of magic is a cord of at lease 1 metre. Some Practitioners use a cord or cords that are 9 feet long and are worn about their waists during rituals, and others make a girdle from blessed and consecrated cords worn around their waist to hang their ritual tools from. This cord also becomes another circle of protection.

The principal behind cord magic is simple. You tie nine knots into the cord in a certain pattern, as you tie the knots you are binding your intent, and therefore the spell, into the cord. The cord is usually kept either until the spell has worked or more usually the knots are released one by one over a certain moon time. For example if you want to bring something into your life the knots will be made at a New Moon, the cord would be kept safe and then nine days before the Full Moon one knot per evening would be released culminating with the last knot being freed on the Full Moon itself. If the spell is to banish something from your life then the knots would be tied just after the Full Moon, when the Moon is Waning, diminishing in size, and the releasing of the knots would start nine days before the Dark Moon, culminating on the Dark itself.


First choose the colour cord you need for your magical purpose and the Moon Phase best suited to your Magic.

Cast your circle in the usual way and when ready light some Purification Incense if you have some. Relax your body and focus your intent, ground and centre yourself as you would before any magical working. Hold the cord in the smoke of the Incense to purify and cleanse it from any past influences. Think about what it is you want to accomplish and infuse it with good energy. Then tie a knot in the order that the diagram shows below. At the tying of the last knot, the ninth, all the energy is directed into the cord and its knots, with a final visualisation of the object of the magical work. The power has been raised and is now stored.

With each knot concentrate on the reason you are performing the spell. It is also advisable to tie a piece of red thread to the second knot you tie to help you remember which order you tied them when it comes to releasing the knots later.

A traditional rhyme is often chanted whilst performing Cord Magic. Each line is spoken when tying the appropriate knot:

"By knot one, this spells begun" "By knot two, it cometh true" "By knot three, so mote it be" "By knot four, this power I store" "By knot five, this spells alive" "By knot six, this spell I fix" "By knot seven, events I'll leaven" "By knot eight, it will be fate" "By knot nine, what’s done is mine"

Keep this cord close to you, kept safe within a black pouch or wrapped in black material, until the time is right to release the power contained within. Speak to no one of your spell to keep its power but above all believe in what you have done and it will work.

Although you tied them all at the same time during the same ritual, they must be untied one at a time approaching the correct Moon and over nine evenings, so that the power is released steadily. They must be released in the same order in which they were tied; this is why it was important to mark your second knot.

So, on the first night light some incense and a candle, hold the cord in your hands, again rocking to raise energy and visualising your intent. When you deem the time ready, untie the FIRST knot. Place the cord back in its bag and keep close to you. One the second night, release the SECOND knot in the same way as before, and so on until the night of the correct Moon phase and the NINTH and final knot. When you are ready to untie this last knot release it with a SHOUT.
