Procure a lock of your lover’s hair and twist it with a lock of your own in a clockwise direction nine times. Tie both ends with red thread and place in a safe place, such as a locket. Carry this in your pocket.

Wear copper jewelery, the favorite metal of Venus, to encourage loving vibrations around you.
