- Red wine or red grape juice (also possible to use cherry nectar)
- 3 pinches of cinnamon
- 1 pinch of cardamom
- 7 cloves
- 2 slices of orange
Buy the wine or juice a day before the Beltaine holiday. Pour one cup to a pot. Add 3 pinches of cinnamon, 1 pinch of cardamom, 7 cloves and 2 slices of orange. Heat the pot carefully so that it won’t boil. Using a wooden spoon, slowly stir the contents of the pot while heating in a clockwise manner. While stirring, imagine with detail the spiritually romantic things you would like to have such as a man or a woman, a date, friendship, good company and so on. Don’t think about someone in particular, as there is a chance you will quickly get disappointed by him/her. It’s important to remember to wish good things to all, and not only for yourself. If you want to make the magical effect more powerful, perform a love ritual of your choice afterwards.
Leave the punch inside the pot for the night, covering the pot with a lid or a wooden plate. The pot needs to be positioned near the window so that the light of the moon, stars and the sun could get through and add to the effect. Once Beltane comes, add the rest of the wine or juice that was left, heat the pot again (careful not to boil) and drink for a happy and interesting summer.
