Sometimes spells don’t work because we desire people for the wrong reasons. Simply put: You can’t make a person fall in love with you. As stated above, the feelings in the relationship must be mutual. If they are not, then the magic will fall flat. LOVE CHANT
Additionally, magic only works if you are putting yourself out there. As in non-magical love, if you’re sitting at home and not interacting with others, you’re not super likely to find your true love. You get what you give.
Spells might also fail if there’s information missing, or the witch conducting the spell isn’t being completely honest with themselves about the situation — or the person they lust for isn’t being truthful with them. Love magic will rip all of these dynamics open for us to see the real story. This is why it’s recommended not to conduct love magic on a particular person, but to open the gates of happiness toward a healthy relationship. Like we said, don’t think of this as bringing someone specific to you. Instead, it can create the best possible path for us to find love.
Can love magic backfire?
Yes! This can happen when your guides (your ancestors and spirits) have a different path for you. Usually, they will steer you in the right place — but only if you listen to them. For instance, if you’re firing up a love candle and the wick stops burning, chances are your spirits are telling you it’s a moot point. Conversely, if the wick is cracking and popping, then it’s a matter that requires extra work.
