Before ordering "self proclaimed" powerful love spells from the hundreds of spell casting sites that seem to pop all over the internet these days, there are a few key essential things that someone looking for a love spell need to know. Without knowing these key information about real love spells and the different ways that one spell can be cast (which directly effects the success rate of a love spell), you might just be throwing your money away.
The casting of real powerful love spells encompasses a wide variety of magical work. Most of these love magic work includes the use of candle work, talisman work, love potion work, evokation of love based entities, petitioning of Love deities and such.
The most basic work is Candle work. In love spells using candle work, the magic worker charges a specific oil according to his magickal path to be used for love purposes. The oil is then used to anoint a Red candle, or a candle in the shape of a nude human form while invoking the emotions involved for love and charging the candle with both the magick oil and the visualisation of the target. Sometimes a photograph of the target is also used and placed below the candle so that the wax melts on the photograph of the target.
Candle work, while effective for straight forward situations (like there needs just a little nudge in the right direction for love to blossom and theres no enmity or background between the two people), is rarely enough on its own for more complicated situations. Also its usually those young and new practitioners of magic, looking to make a quick buck from their newfound powers, as limited as they are, that offer candle work by itself without any prior consultations and other complementary work.
Talismanic work is a step above candle work. Talismanic work for love spells could include talismans of the sun, the moon, venus and the various planets. The effective magick worker will use the energies of the planet to super charge a talisman for a specific purpose. For example solar talismans can be used to give success, confidence, radiance, power to the wearer and thus increase his success in love, Moon talismans can be used to bring out the sensual, hypnotic side in the wearer and thus influence the opposite sex and Venus Talismans work directly to bombard the wearer with an attractive aura that intrigue and fascinate the opposite sex.
The problem with many New Age practitioners is they do not follow the old ways when charging a talisman which makes success with these talismans unpredictable. When it comes to planetary work, old practitioners like me follow the exact time and day corresponding with the planet we want to work with and also do an astrological reading to see at which date would be doing the love spell be most effective. For example, Mars can be seen as the Captain of the army, he is brave, courageous and a natural leader. When he is in the same zone as the Moon however, he is in detriment. The Moon is viewed as the Queen, so when the Captain enters the Queen's chambers, he has to remove his sword, clean his boots and bow down to the queen. Very unbecoming of the Captain. So doing Mar's work when it is together with the Moon will not be very effective.
It takes an advanced magic worker who has been practicing for many years to yield the power to evoke entities such as the Goetic spirits like Asmoday, the Necronomicon entities like Gil, and also be thought of high enough in the spiritual world for his petitions to the deities like Aphrodite and Kamdev to yield results. Evoking entities, and having enough power to ask them to do what you want is two different things altogether. Evokation is the most powerful of all love spells and love based work as you call forth powerful love entities to forcefully effect change in a situation, thereby changing fate itself. Even then one has to look at the astrological outlook of the situation for a hundred percent success rate and advice the buyer to be detached from the outcome of the love spell work so that his mental capacity does not handicap the spell work.
Again, most new aged workers do not do this, thereby affecting the outcome of their magick work. Its the Real Magician/sorcerer who yields these ancient techniques and combines astrology with candle work, talismans and evokations to bring forth maximum results.
