Tuesday the Full Moon appears in Sagittarius; the embodiment of seeking, travel, enlightenment, learning, and adventure. Therefore, it’s a great time to cast a spell to draw in that vacation you’ve been wanting to take!
A lot of travel spells are designed for protecting the traveler during their journey; however, while this one has protective elements, its purpose is to manifest the actual traveling. Woo hoo!

Before starting, assemble everything you’ll need in the area you’ll be working in. Write your name (and the names of travel companions such as family members) on the yellow paper. (You may want to use a smaller piece of paper for this, as it will be going into the bag or envelope. You could even use the rest of the paper to fold into an envelope.) If you choose to employ a sigil, add that to the paper as well. Empower the paper with the manifestation of your desire, whether that be a vacation to a particular place (in which case, feel free to write it on as well) or more travel in your life in general. When this is done, seal in the energy and fold it into a paper airplane.
Cast your circle. On the candle, carve the names of the travelers, the destination if you have somewhere specific in mind, and any symbols that represent travel to you (sun, airplane, palm tree, mountain, etc.). Empower and anoint the candle and place it in the holder.
If you choose to work with deities: I have included Jupiter as the ruler of Sagittarius (for timing the working when the moon is in Sagittarius) and Mercury, god of travel. They are associated with the elements of fire and air respectively, and air is also associated with travel. At this point, light the charcoal disc and invoke each god while offering their herb or incense on the disc. (If you have access to a small contained fire, all the better.)
Place the paper airplane and any crystals you’re using near the base of the candle.
Light the candle. Drop a pinch of the herbs in the flame or on the disc, hold some in your hands, and chant:
“Archer adventurous and wise,
Help me (us) travel far and wide.”
Once the candle has burned down or you feel the time is right, sprinkle some herbal mixture into the folds of the airplane and put the airplane, handful of herbs, and any crystals used into the pouch. You may also put the candle remains into the pouch/envelope once cool.
Offer your heartfelt gratitude to any deities invoked, thank them for their presence, and release them. Know that it is done. Close the circle.
Place the pouch in your suitcase or travel bag and let it go into your subconscious mind and the superconscious of the Universe.
