Venus Love Spell

Begin the spell on Friday, the day traditionally associated with Venus. Repeat the ritual for seven consecutive nights.

One Red Heart Cloth
One Red Candle
One Mirror
One White Cloth
Seven Pins
One Scent of Venus Insense Stick

This spell is best conducted naked, in absolute privacy. After a cleansing ritual and relaxing bath, perfume your body with Ylang Ylang oil. Choose a magic area in your bedroom, lay out a white cloth and position yourself in front of the mirror.

Cast a protective circle, light the candle and incense, focus on your sexual energy and chant:

"I call thee, beloved one,
To love me more than anyone.
Seven times I pierce they heart,
Today the magic of Venus starts.
I bind thy heart and soul to me;
As I do will, so let it be."

Repeat the chant seven times, placing pins in the heart one at a time after repeating, "Seven times I pierce they heart". Snuff out the ceremonial candle and incense. Leaving the pins in the heart until the following night.

What is depression?

Depression describes a range of moods, from the low spirits that we all experience, to a severe problem that interferes with everyday life. The latter type, sometimes referred to as 'clinical depression', is defined as 'a persistent exaggeration of the everyday feelings that accompany sadness'. If you have severe depression you may experience low mood, loss of interest and pleasure as well as feelings of worthlessness and guilt. You may also experience tearfulness, poor concentration, reduced energy, reduced or increased appetite and weight, sleep problems and anxiety. You may even feel that life is not worth living, and plan or attempt suicide.

Depression can affect anyone, of any culture, age or background. About twice as many women as men seek help for depression, though this may reflect the greater readiness of women to discuss their problems. One thing that may make it hard for doctors to recognise depression is that people with depression often complain of physical problems, commonly headaches, lethargy, stomach upsets or joint pains, rather than low mood, sometimes because these can be significant symptoms, but sometimes because they find it difficult to admit to feeling emotionally distressed for reasons they may not even be able to identify.

Depression is usually related to upsetting life events, such as bereavement, relationship difficulties, physical illness, or job or money worries.

Are there different types of depression?
Bi-polar Affective Disorder (Manic Depression)

Someone with bi-polar affective disorder has both 'high' and 'low' mood swings, along with changes in thoughts, emotions and physical health. For further information please see Manic Depression. Factsheet. Mental Health Foundation, 2000.
Post-Natal Depression (PND)

About 1 in 10 women experience postnatal depression in the first year after having a baby. For further information please see Post Natal Depression (Postpartum Illness). Factsheet. Mental Health Foundation, 2001.
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

Some people describe feeling depressed regularly at certain times of the year. Usually this kind of depression starts in the autumn or winter, when daylight is reduced. For further information please see Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Factsheet. Mental Health Foundation, 2000.

How can you reduce the risk of depression?
Keep in touch with you friends. If you are already depressed you find it very difficult to be sociable, and this can make you feel more depressed. So it is important for you to keep in contact with friends and find someone to talk to when you are feeling low.
Keep active. Being more active is associated with lower levels of depression. Outdoor activity seems to be particularly important in staving off depression in older men.
Review your eating habits. Recent research has suggested that people who are depressed may have low levels of certain essential fatty acids, which are found in fish oils. It has therefore been suggested that people with depression should change their eating habits, for example eating more oily fish such as sardines, or should take fish oil supplements.
Investigate herbal medicine. St John's Wort ( Hypericum perforatum) can help many people with mild to moderate depression. Before taking St John's Wort check with your doctor or pharmacist especially if you are taking other kinds of medication, for example for heart disease, epilepsy, asthma or migraine.
Investigate self-help techniques. Some people have reported benefits from various self help techniques such as meditation, listening to music, and acupuncture.
Take control. Some people find it helps if they have some control over what happens. This helps to guard against the kind of 'hopelessness' which is associated with depression. Activities that involve making a 'fresh start' have been shown to help people recover from long-lasting depression. Similarly, learning to set small or manageable goals can give you a sense of achievement and make you feel better.
Find out more. There are a number of self-help books, guides, and software programmes which can help you to learn ways of coping with mild to moderate episodes of depression. Some of these resources are listed at the end of this factsheet.

What treatments are there for depression?
Drug Treatments

Anti-depressant drugs act by increasing the activity of those brain chemicals which affect the way we feel. Anti-depressants are thought to help 2 out of 3 of people with depression.

Tricyclic antidepressants, such as dothiepin, imipramine, and amitryptyline are often prescribed for moderate to severe depression. These usually take up to two weeks to start working and may have side effects.

Newer antidepressant drugs (SSRIs and SNRIs) target specific chemical 'messengers' in the brain. The most well-known SSRI is fluoxetine (Prozac) but there are several other brands. These newer drugs are popular because they tend to have fewer side effects than older drugs.

Lithium carbonate is sometimes prescribed to people with severe depression. High levels of lithium in the blood are dangerous so anyone taking lithium must have regular blood tests.

If you are prescribed drugs for depression you will probably be advised to take them for at least six months - or longer if you have a previous history of depression. You may experience withdrawal effects if you stop taking antidepressant drugs, particularly if you stop suddenly. These effects can include headache, nausea, dizziness and even hallucinations. Always consult your doctor before stopping taking anti-depressants. Do not stop taking medication suddenly as the withdrawal effects may be severe. For further information please see Medication for mental health problems. Factsheet. Mental Health Foundation, 2000.
Talking treatments

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a type of 'talking' treatment. It is based on the fact that the way we feel is partly dependent on the way we think about events (cognition). It also stresses the importance of behaving in ways which challenge negative thoughts - for example being active to challenge feelings of hopelessness.

Interpersonal therapy (IPT) focuses on people's relationships and on problems such as difficulties in communication, or coping with bereavement. There is some evidence that IPT can be as effective as medication or CBT but more research is needed.

Counselling is a form of therapy in which counsellors help people think about the problems they are experiencing in their lives and find new ways of coping with difficulties. They give support and help people find their own solutions, rather than offering advice or treatment. For further information please see Talking treatments and therapies for mental health problems. Factsheet. Mental Health Foundation, 2000.
