Witchy Tip of the Week: Birthday Magic

What is up my beautiful friends! I hope everyone has had a wonderful, amazing month! Seems like it flew by and that means tomorrow is my Birthday!! Now this is my Golden Birthday (which I have been waiting for since I learned what they were when I was 11) so I am extra excited about all the energy that will be going on. I figured since I was going to be honing in on my birthday magic, it was a wonderful time to also let you guys in on some great ways to add even more magic to your very special day!

Now first off, I don't think people realize how important a birthday actually is. Birthdays are powerful because they represent a convergence of spiritual, emotional, and practical energies. They are a time of celebration, reflection, and growth, and they offer us a chance to connect with our own inner power and wisdom. There are many spiritual traditions around birthdays where it is believed that our souls carry a unique vibration or frequency, and that this frequency is amplified on the day of our birth. As a result, birthdays are seen as a time when we are especially connected to the divine or spiritual realm, and when we can more easily access our own innate wisdom and intuition.

Birthdays are also powerful because they provide an opportunity for reflection, renewal, and transformation. As we mark another year of life, we have a chance to reflect on our experiences and accomplishments, and to set new goals and intentions for the year ahead. This process of self-reflection and renewal can be incredibly empowering and transformative, as it allows us to connect with our own inner strength and potential.

So, with all this knowledge in mind, the energy is ripe when it is your birthday! Everyone shines a little brighter, even if they don't know it, and if you look hard enough there is opportunity everywhere! Now, birthday magic is a form of magic that is often used to enhance the celebrant's energy, happiness, and wellbeing. There are a few different ways that birthday magic can be practiced, some you are actually already doing!

  • Birthday Candle Spell: On the morning of their birthday, the celebrant can light a candle and visualize their desires and intentions for the upcoming year. As they blow out the candle, they can make a wish or set an intention for the year ahead. This is actually where the blowing out of candles and making a wish came from!

  • Birthday Blessing Ritual: This ritual involves gathering friends and family members to offer blessings and well wishes to the celebrant. Participants can offer words of encouragement, read poems or affirmations, or offer small gifts or tokens of appreciation. Sounds kind of like a birthday party, right?

  • Birthday Tarot Reading: The celebrant can use their birthday as an opportunity to do a tarot reading that focuses on their upcoming year. They can draw cards that represent their strengths, challenges, and opportunities for growth, and use the insights gained to help guide their journey.

  • Birthday Journaling: The celebrant can use their birthday as a time to reflect on the past year and set intentions for the year ahead. They can write down their accomplishments, challenges, and goals, and use this information to create a vision board or action plan for the upcoming year.

Overall, birthday magic is a personal and meaningful practice that can help the celebrant connect with their own power and purpose. By focusing on their intentions and desires, they can create a positive and transformative experience that sets the tone for the year ahead.

Ready to take it to the next level? Try this simple candle spell on your big day!


  • One white candle

  • Matches or a lighter

  • A piece of paper and a pen

  • Any additional crystals or objects that you feel drawn to


  1. Find a quiet and comfortable place where you can perform the spell without being disturbed. Light the white candle using the matches or lighter.

  2. Sit in front of the candle and take a few deep breaths to ground yourself and center your energy.

  3. On the piece of paper, write down one or more intentions that you would like to set for the upcoming year. These intentions can be related to your personal growth, your relationships, your career, or any other area of your life that you would like to focus on.

  4. Hold the piece of paper in your hands and visualize your intentions coming to fruition. See yourself achieving your goals and living the life that you desire.

  5. When you feel ready, place the piece of paper in front of the candle and let it burn. As you watch the paper burn, imagine your intentions being released into the universe and manifesting in your life.

  6. Sit with the candle for a few more minutes, visualizing yourself surrounded by positive energy and blessings.

  7. When you are ready, blow out the candle and thank the universe for its support and guidance.

Remember to keep your intentions in mind throughout the year and take action towards achieving them. This simple birthday magic spell can help you align with the energies of the universe and create a more fulfilling and joyful life.

I will be signing off for the weekend since birthday celebrations have already begun!

Until next time,
