There is no single
goal more often sought after than finding true love. Be careful with
love magick, as it can backfire on you. Love spells shouldn't be
directed at any specific person because that would be manipulative.
To manipulate a person
into a relationship in which they have shown no interest developing
is to try to negate that person' s right to free will. To cast a
spell "to make so and so fall in love with me" shows not a
spirit of love but an insensitivity to another's feelings. But witches
do cast love spells. don't they? Yes, they do. The first love spell
a witch should cast should be for her/himself. Self esteem is
essential in correct magical working. To bring a complete and
balanced person into a relationship, is indeed to give a precious
gift to another. To be capable of receiving love, we must be able to
truly give love.

So what would be a correct love spell? A spell to
"remove obstacles to love" could cause physical distance to cease to
be a problem, would allow "circumstances" to arrange a meeting or draw
someone who is good for you into your life that perhaps you do not even know
yet! It could also make someone who IS interested in you to be able to overcome
shyness in approaching you or you with them. The point here is that while
Wiccans are free to influence energies to accomplish a purpose, they are not
free to manipulate people.
