Alignment Good magic

"To Call Upon Our Ancestors" is a powerful spell that summons some of the most powerful ancestors of the Charmed Ones for whatever purpose they need ancestral assistance with, such as vanquishing demons.

Vanquishing the Source[]

This spell was first cast in 2002 to defeat the Source. The sisters were preparing for the Source's impending attack, knowing that it was imminent. They had a plan to trap him in a crystal cage upon attack. The Source, after absorbing the Hollow, attacked the sisters at the manor and injuring Piper. Suddenly, Cole shimmered in and jumped in front of Phoebe, protecting her from a fire ball. Cole absorbed the fire ball and was able to distract and weaken the Source with fire balls. The sisters then used the spell to call upon their ancestors to successfully vanquish him.

Long Live the Queen[]

The sisters were forced to use the spell to vanquish Cole, who had become, the Source.

The Eyes Have It[]

A Gypsy hunter, Orin attacked a group of Shuvanis, the Niccolis. He attacks at the manor and Ava and the sisters replace the Halliwell names with those of the Niccoli gypsies.

Sympathy for the Demon[]

Utilized in an attempt to vanquish Barbas; it was unsuccessful, due to the unlimited demonic power he had stolen from a ressurected Cole.

  • The line "Halliwell witches stand strong beside us" is somewhat questionable. Penny was the only magical being to marry a Halliwell leading Patricia and her daughters to be Halliwells. It does not make sense that Allen's ancestors would be called when it was the Warrens who bestowed the Halliwells with Wiccan power. The most sensible explanation, is that the Warren lineage had taken the current name Halliwell. Like Leo later states in Baby's First Demon, the name Halliwell is feared by demons and other evils alike (probably because of Grams) which is the reason why he wants his children to take on the last name as well instead of his last name Wyatt. Plus, the spell that summons the Matriarchs is called To Call the Halliwell Matriarchs.
  • It is debatable that the spell was written by Phoebe or one of her ancestors. It's never confirmed who, in fact, wrote it.
