For luck and good fortune from 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
To start, slowly cut a slit in the top of your candle wide and deep enough to fit your casino / poker chip. Make it so that the slit is as close to the outer edge as possible, to keep the chip from getting in the way of the flame. Next, rub Double Good Luck / Doble Suerte Rapida oil on both sides of your casino or poker chip before pressing the chip into the slit you carved out. As you press the chip into the wax, try to angle the chip slightly so that, as the candle melts, the chip will tilt away from the flame instead of toward it.
Remember, this technique is only if you're using a votive candle encased in glass. If you're using a candle NOT encased in glass, then you can lean your chip against the base of the candle, or carve out a small circle in the bottom of the candle where you can press in the chip so it becomes flush with the candle base.
Next, tape your blackjack playing cards to the outside of your offering candle. Again, if you're using an offering candle NOT encased in glass, you can place these two cards flat under your offering candle.
Light your candle so that you may continue the rest of the working in its light.
Establish a Magickal Connection
Using your silver ink pen, write your name and date of birth, or the name and date of birth of the target for this petition, on your piece of paper. In the absence of this information, as much personal information as you can come up with will suffice - as would a photo, if you have one. This is what allows the magickal energy raised to be delivered to the appropriate person.
With your paper on your altar, stand your candle on top of it and recite the Gambler's Luck Santa Muerte magick prayer, found below.
NOTE: If your offering candle is NOT encased in glass and you placed your playing cards beneath your candle, simply place your piece of paper below the playing cards. You want the playing cards and the candle to be touching.
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 alfalfa, chamomile, and cinnamon - in your mortar and use your pestle to incorporate. You don't need a powder necessarily, but you should combine the ingredients well enough so you end up with a little bit in each pinch.
As you grate and incorporate, continue to recite the below Gambler's Luck Santa Muerte magick prayer as you focus on your intent of your target experiencing success and fortune in games of chance. When the ingredients have been incorporated, set your mortar aside.
Burn Your Lotto Ticket
Next, safely light your lottery ticket on fire and allow to burn in your cauldron or burn pot until reduced to ashes. 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 incorporate your ashes into the herbal mixture.
Oil Your Candle
Using your Double Good Luck / Doble Suerte Rapida oil, dress the outside of your offering candle. You don't need to cover every inch, a little goes a long way, but use your intuition to determine when you've applied enough. If you taped your playing cards to your candle, cover those in oil as well.
Encircle Your Target with Gambler's Luck
Next, 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 your paper with the energy of the magick you're raising. Below your paper is your magick altar, above your paper is your gambler's luck candle, and on all sides is your herbal mixture designed to promote good luck while gambling, making bets, and playing games of chance.
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 can burn or bury any organic material that is left over, and treat all inorganic material as regular trash.
Gambler's Luck Santa Muerte Magick Prayer
Santa Muerte, cloak of silver,
luck be doubled, over and over.
From games of chance, to bets wagered,
send the luck of the master gamblers.
Bless with jackpots and fortune found,
let a windfall of winning abound.
In your name, Santa Muerte, amen.
