Vedic Spells :
How to get rid of bad luck, how to get rid of misfortune, and to obtain blessings
The spell I am going to give you is based on Atharva Veda and the 18th hymn of its first book. The purpose is to drive away the misfortune and to obtain all kind of blessings. The translator of Atharva Veda, Ralf Griffith, assumed that the blessings should be of money nature, but in fact the hymn doesn’t state that.
I am going to give you the hymn, as translated by Ralf Griffith, and then some ideas about how to empower it and how to adapt it to your pantheon or philosophy and to the folkloric beliefs of your area.
First the Hymn: Atharva Veda, Hymn 1.18
We drive away the Spotted Hag, Misfortune, and Malignity: All blessings to our children then! We chase Malignity away.
Let Savitar, Mitra, Varuna, and Aryaman drive away Stinginess from both the hands and feet: May Favour, granting us her bounties, drive her off. The Gods created Favour for our happiness.
Each fearful sign upon thy body, in thyself, each inauspicious mark seen in thy hair, thy face, all this we drive away and banish with our speech. May Savitar the God graciously further thee.
Antelope-foot, and Bullock-tooth, Cow-terrifier, Vapour-form, The Licker, and the Spotted Hag, all these we drive away from us.
How to change / alter it:
First of all the Gods that are called are Savitar, Mitra, Varuna and Aryaman, all sons of Aditi, all solar deities. Now for those serving the Universe, Savitar should be the Sun, Mitra and Varuna (keep the duet) should be Light and Darkness or Fire and Water, and Aryaman should be the Stars.
|Lord Surya - The Chief of all the sons of Adity|
Artemis for the Aryaman.
