A May Day Spell for Beauty

One of the time-honored methods of improving physical beauty in Scotland and England was to gather morning dew on May Day and apply it to the skin. To adapt this idea using a more spiritual tone, try mixing a little catnip tea with this dew. Anoint yourself thrice over the heart with it, saying, "Loveliness within, loveliness without, let beauty shine, remove all doubt."

If May Day dew is not available, use rain or dew drops collected on the third or twenty-first day of any month. To gather dew, drape a fine linen or cotton cloth over a few plants at nightfall. Just after dawn the next day, wring out the fabric into a clean container. Refrigerate this, otherwise the water will quickly become stagnant and unusable for magic.

Internalizing the spirit of beauty. Grace under pressure. Poise and presence. Self-confidence.

May Day. Beneath a full moon. When the moon is in Leo or Virgo. Fridays, especially during November.
