13 Goddess WK04: Greek Goddess Athena

We could all use a little more wisdom and discernment in our lives.  Below you will find a spell to Athena, the Greek Goddess of wisdom, war, the arts, industry, justice and skill.

Wisdom of Athena Candle Spell
This spell is performed during the last quarter of the waxing moon or during the full moon. 
Use a pin to carve into a yellow or purple spell candle; let the creativity flow through your hand into the designs, runes or letters that you place on the candle.  As you light your candle, visualize Athena's owl, as a protector and your guide.  Concentrate on being receptive to the wisdom and perceptions of Athena.  Say this incantation (out loud or in your mind): 

Goddess of the olive tree,
Goddess of the shield and spear,
Goddess of wisdom and clarity,
Bless me with the piercing eyes of the Owl,
so that I may see what few can.
I ask that you guide me today and always.

 Sit back and watch the candle burn.  If possible, focus and meditate on your desires until the candle is almost burned out.  Combine the ashes and left over wax together and bury it in the earth near your home.


  1. This is what I usually lack in my life: Wisdom. ehehehehe!!! Great spell!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. This fits together nicely! Well done :)

  3. Wonderfully useful spell. The clarity of the words lends to the clarity of mind :D Blessed Be :D XXX

  4. Oh, this is wonderful and so creative ... I find I don't have the energy to do spells and just smudge lately. I do so believe in focusing your intentions and that will bring the energy needed for the intended outcome.

    Thanks so much for this and it is much appreciated.

    Happiness to all.
