The magic of Sea Shells Obviously sea shells are associated with water. The Moon controls the tides of the ocean so shells are also associated with the Moon. Shells also have an association with Aphrodite, so can also be used for love spells. Use a shell as a love drawing talisman. In the past shells were also used in some parts of the world as currency so they also have the association of money and prosperity. Use in money drawing medicine bags or pop a small shell in your purse. Think about what a shell is, it is a protective covering for the creature inside making shells also good for protection. Particular shells also have their own individual meanings: Abalone - general use and containment of empowered herbs and stones Clam shells - purification and love Conche shell - love Cone shell - protection Cowrie shell - prosperity, money - if you look at a cowrie shell is also looks very 'feminine' ;-) Whelks - dramatic positive change Limpets - courage, confidence, strength Scallops - travel, movement
If you are collecting your own sea shells please make sure that the creature is not still inside it, if you do pick up one with a living creature toss it back into the water.
