For luck and good fortune in gambling, games of chance, and bets.
***Someone reached out to me online and requested I petition the Santa Muerte for gambler's luck on his behalf. This is what I came up with.
You Will Need
Prepare Your Candle
At your Santa Muerte altar, use your silver ink pen to write your name and date of birth, or the name and date of birth of the target for this petition, across the faces of the two playing cards. In the absence of a full name or date of birth, write any identifying information you may have, like city of residence, email address, phone number, or occupational title. What you write is not as important as making your intent clear. This is what allows the magickal energy raised to be delivered to the appropriate person. Place the two playing cards on your altar.
Dress the silver candle in Double Good Luck / Doble Suerte Rapida oil, then place it on your Santa Muerte altar, atop the two face up playing cards.
Next, anoint the casino / poker chip with Double Good Luck oil, and lean the chip against the candle.
As you perform these steps, you may also recite the below included Gambler's Luck Santa Muerte magick prayer.
Light your candle so that you may continue the rest of the working in its light.
Prepare Your Herbal Mixture
If using whole nutmeg, grate one or two pieces and move the resulting powder / crumbs into your mortar and pestle. Combine approximately equal parts of the rest of your herbal ingredients - the chamomile and cinnamon - in your mortar and use your pestle to grind and incorporate the three ingredients into a powder. Be careful of breathing in the dust of the herbal ingredients as you grind, as it may cause irritation.
As you do this, continue to recite the below Gambler's Luck Santa Muerte magick prayer as you focus on the intent of attracting success and fortune in games of chance. When the ingredients have been incorporated, set your mortar aside.
Burn Your Lotto Ticket
Next, using the flame from the burning silver candle, safely light your lottery ticket on fire and allow to burn in your cauldron or burn pot until reduced to ashes. As the ticket burns, continue to recite the below Gambler's Luck magick prayer. Move these ashes into your mortar and incorporate these ashes with the rest of your herbal mixture. In essence, you're treating the ashes of your lottery ticket like an herbal ingredient. Again recite the below Gambler's Luck Santa Muerte magick prayer as you grind and incorporate your ashes into the herbal mixture.
Encircle Your Target with Gambler's Luck
Once the ashes are well incorporated into your herbal mixture, you can sprinkle your herbal mixture around the outside of your candle to create a circle around the base of the candle. With this, you completely surround the name on the playing cards with the energy of the magick you're raising.
Continue to focus on your intent of sending good gambler's luck to your target as you sprinkle your herbal mixture, reciting the below magick prayer as you do.
From here, all you have to do is allow your offering candle to burn on your Santa Muerte altar until complete. When the candle has burned to completion, you may dispose of what remains from this petition using the instructions outlined in my post How to Dispose of Magick Trash.
Gambler's Luck Santa Muerte Magick Prayer
Santa Muerte, cloak of silver,
luck be doubled, over'n over.
From games of chance, to bets wagered,
send the luck of master gamblers.
Bless with jackpots and fortune found,
let a windfall of winning abound.
In your name, Santa Muerte, amen.
