Rufus Opus: Head For the Red One of the best minds in the occult world today, in my opinion, albeit Hoodoo (what I usually discuss) is not his topic of choice. This gem was one I discovered thanks to a client and I strongly recommend his blog to all who are interested in things suchas working with angels, demons, Enochianism, Golden Dawn and talismanic magic (there really is a nice mash of brain food to be had). Great stuff!
For those who never read my announcements, just to let you know, I'm having connectivity and electric issues due to a severe winter storm. If I'm delayed on replying to you, this is probably why. Please be patient and do not repetitively email me because I've not replied yet. That doesn't help and I didn't lose your email. ;) Instead, I probably don't have wifi right now, and "reminding" me of something that is likely not even late for my reply anyhow (this is about 95% of all reminder emails I get, haha,) is just making the problem worse for everyone.
I realize it's been awhile and I didn't want you to think I'm neglecting you. :) Don't have time for much but a fast discussion on obsession and intranquility work. I'm pretty behind on some business replies and I feel like I'm cheating on my clients by writing this out. ;)
A lot of people come to me with some relatively wild myths they've Googled from the interwebs about a popular version of the Intranquil Spirit that starts with the line "O, intranquil spirit, you that are in hell and can never reach heaven, hear me, hear me" (or similar.) I've heard that a spirit from hell will come consume the user, I've heard that the love affair will be cursed and go sour, I've heard of people becoming possessed...and I've yet to see one damn incidence of any such thing happening because of the above described spell.
For what it's worth, I get it - it looks like a scary spell. It's related to old Greco-Roman (and I'm talking stuff from the Greek Magical Papyrii which is around 2000 years old,) spellwork, which commonly asks restless spirits or a god or goddess to punish a target until he or she returns to (or falls in love with) the petitioner. From my reading, this form of spell was not uncommon at all in those days. So when we look at a more modern version such as the above, many of use would find the historical versions far more bloodthirsty and "scary" than the modern version, but then, modern eyes expect a love spell to be soft, kind, uplifting, warm - and yet that does not always bring the desired result, a sure reason people have returned to this kind of spell time and again, having tried kinder methods to bring in their target.
I suppose the first question is, why torture someone to come back or to be your romantic partner? The not so nice reply is that sometimes someone just feeling loving or lusty won't propel them back - there's too much damage, the target is too stubborn, the target is too afraid to reach out, - so some petitioners, deeply desirous of someone's return, will resort to making the target uncomfortable and restless until he or she does return. There are spells even darker than obsession work that suggest the target love the petitioner or begin to die slowly until they return the petitioner's love, so certainly this is not the darkest step down the "come back to me/be mine/I own you" level of love spells that exist.
I'm not here to judge anyone's motives, and surely, many obsession spells are done not out of necessity, but a few hundred years ago, the loss of a partner could mean death or your children starving if a man left you for another woman, an advantageous marriage could mean a much better life for your family - but usually the petitioner has just come to a point where he or she must have the target...they're obsessed. The petitioner may be opposed to killing the target, but making the target stay up sleepless more than one night, or the target feeling shame, regret, remorse, and to be loved by the petitioner (or loved again by the petitioner) seems to them a perfectly acceptable punishment against the target who "forced" the petitioner to suffer much the same way by not returning/not returning their affections.
If the target is tortured by this obsessive nature, will they always be tortured? There are few schools of thought there, but in my experience with the popular version of the intranquil spirit (O, intranquil spirit, you that are in hell and can never reach heaven, etc) is no. The popular intranquil spirit spell usually gets the target to reach out and make amends, and then the influence generally fades VERY FAST. However I have seen in some instances of using obsession work on a lover rather than an ex lover having possibly caused the lover to be very possessive of the petitioner...but then, I have witnessed situations where just attempting to use straight love drawing to help a target begin to overcome his or her deep commitmentphobia made them insecure, possessive, and jealous, - without having ever used obsession work on those targets, - so the argument can be made that perhaps some targets may naturally have these tendencies when feeling romantic or sexual attraction to others. If the target shows proclivity towards being naturally jealous, possessive, or obsessive, I would caution against using this type of working just in case.
Do the evil spirits/God/dess etc, sour the relationship? Not in my experience, no. In fact, it might be noted that the majority of people using this type of spellwork are trying to return a lover they have lost. What people say ALL OF THE TIME when wanting an ex back is that they merely want the relationship to be like new again...which is impossible. You have a history with this person. You will have to be willing to make the relationship work (not fall on old, bad habits which tore you apart,) you will have to realize they won't forget your wrongdoing (even if they forgive you,) and this alone may sour the experience. The sheer number of people who want an ex back only because they were unprepared to lose this person, who then DUMP their "so beloved" ex once they get the person to return to them (often in less than a month) might surprise you, but it's not that uncommon.
That said, I've also seen this kind of working repair a badly fractured relationship on more than one occasion. Someone is too prideful to return, and this type of spell creates the needed influence to have them swallow their pride and come back. When petitioner and target are reunited, the relationship lasts for years afterward.
Is someone apt to get possessed doing this spell? I highly doubt it. I have never heard a believable recounting of someone getting possessed during this spell, though I've heard some hilariously suspect stories of such events. I personally feel that some petitioners are too suggestible to be practicing this sort of spell, or most spells for that matter.
Well, I've had it. :P I literally, without any exaggeration whatsoever, have had the FIFTEENTH misused consultation in less than a week. I think that just accounts for the last four days. That's crazy. So, it will take me a day or so to adjust the site, but I'm making consultations cost money. I'm hoping it will keep me from dealing with too many people who just want to spend free time with me. I tried this before when I was having this problem but it cleared up and I had maybe one person per month doing something like this if that. Since December, it's been absolutely ludicrous. I fear doing a consultation because a lot of the time I'm not getting paid ever, but even then the prospective client who's not purchasing something often keeps emailing me over and over and over for weeks...only never to make a purchase. Imagine doing your job pretty much for free, and working 12-14 hours a day for very little. It kind of stinks.
I do understand not everyone will be interested in making a purchase, and that isn't what I'm talking about. Spending days sometimes keeping me in consult to suggest making a purchase at some much later date - and asking me several questions, all day daily, for days or even weeks, - that's really unfair to me if I end up not getting paid for weeks (or sometimes never.) My hope is that the consultation fees will separate the serious from people who just want to take up time.
It also effects my active cases. I need to spend time with people, and unfortunately emergencies come first, "paying" business (consults) second, and non-emergency inquiries from active cases third. If I'm spending hours every day dealing with people who have no intention of making a purchase, I could use that valuable time dealing with my active cases more thoroughly.
And I'd be compensated for lost work hours, which never hurts. :)
In other news, I'm also doing some mega money spell work on myself because a lot of non-paying inquiries tells me I'm due.
So, I'm sorry if this impacts anyone negatively - I'll try to set it up so that people who are buying something are not incurring additional fees, just that people who want a consultation with no intention of purchase are going to compensate me for my time. :)
I wanted to thank everyone who had some kind words or wasn't too pushy this week. The sudden death of one of my friends would be difficult in any situation, but he and my boyfriend were close, and he was like family to us. My boyfriend took his loss particularly hard, and that made it difficult for me to be present as much as I would have liked to be for clients and readers. Thank you all so much for your patience. :) I expect to have everything back to normal on Monday, February 6.
To those of you who got ugly with me for things like not immediately replying or similar, I don't thank you at all. I have a personal life, too. :P But everyone else? You're awesome.
A friend of mine died suddenly and unexpectedly on Sunday night. I found out today. Please give me a day or so to recover. I'm glad to take orders for work, discuss work, and etc but I may need a day to process his loss. :(
As many of you know, myself and Mike Cecchetelli are coming out with a book...any day now. I know it's coming soon because we discussed things like end papers and whatnot like ten days or so ago...and yet I still don't have a solid release date other than "any day now."
However with that in mind, I'll probably have A LOT of business when this comes out, and that might be difficult. With my current work load and so many people acting ABSOFUCKINGLUTELY INSANE (clients, client's targets, just people in general) in the last few weeks, I've been considering downsizing how many people I take on as clients after January 2017. I have other obligations (a class, I want to write another book, I have a personal life - you know, the basics,) and I'd like to have the time to enjoy/engage in those obligations. So, part of that will involve me taking on less client work for awhile. I'm not totally ready to downsize my client-work-load yet, but in the next few weeks I will be.
So, an advisory....if you're really invested in having me work for you, read for you, or engage my services, NOW is the time to ask. When I start getting slammed with work because of the book's release, I'm going to start reducing how many people I will accept for new work.
As far as the book, I will definitely let ALL OF YOU KNOW the moment it is released. Mike's been hyping it, I've been hyping it - it's basically all you ever wanted to know about love and seduction spells, especially in the Hoodoo tradition. I know it will be popular. :) And again, release date? Any day now.
I wanted to get a sweet jar up for you...I really did. Unfortunately in the last week (probably because the Holidays are so sucktastic sometimes,) it seems like I've become something of a therapist for everyone with love problems.
So I'm going to start out with a harsh reality - just because you love someone, just because you would treat someone better than they treat you (or you believe you would,) that doesn't mean they will love you back, and sometimes that's regardless of what steps you take, they will not love you back no matter what you do.
Here's another harsh reality - the reason someone left you (the "real one" you want so much,) probably won't make you feel any better than you do now.
And another: Even if someone loves you back, it won't make a bad person a good person.
And yet one more - actions mean more than words, so someone can say one thing, but their actions should be what you use to determine their feelings by.
Ah, and yet one more? Silence is a response (so stop pushing for a response,) and if someone gives you cues to back off, smothering them and badgering them is about the worst idea possible.
When it comes to spellwork, cornering your target to get a desired response (and you can verbally corner someone,) will generally make them snap at you. If you stalk someone, they will know. If you act desperate, you will chase them off. If you don't take the cue to back off when given, you might blow your whole spell.
All of this is very frustrating when you want something so much and it's just out of reach, but when you don't act in concert with your spellwork because you're upset and desperate and out of control, you're going to mess everything up and at the end of the day, your investment of time, money, and energy will all be thrown out because you couldn't control yourself - because YOU insisted on acting out. It IS NOT that the spell didn't work - it's that you worked against it.
And a lot of you don't want to have that said. It's hard enough for many of you to get how lust for results can ruin the work, and so you stalk someone, you overthink the situation, you do things like ask me if someone your ex went to high school with posting an image of a car has anything to do with you and him/her. While I can understand that many people do not understand lust for results is the main cause of spell-failure, what I do NOT understand is why so many of you think spellwork is somehow going to protect against bad behavior. So...you drive away the one you "love" so much by acting like a complete assclown.
And everyone over the age of 21 has probably been a complete assclown at least once, so stop thinking you're alone. Everyone's done it - everyone's blown their own love life up by doing something horribly stupid.
Now, realize, if you want someone to change the way they act towards you, you need to change how you act towards them. They are reacting to you. Even if you feel someone is being "unfair" by not seeing what you've put in, or what you're going through, try to see things from their perspective. It might not agree with your perspective, but if you try to see yourself through their eyes, you may very well start seeing how you can behave towards them to get a better response.
Because here's the thing - love spells aren't a guarantee against your bad behavior. Spells don't care if you made a mistake. They don't care if you panicked. They don't care if you are having a bad day. Just like a fire won't care if you didn't mean to throw water on it, - it's going to go out - so it is with spells...if you act out, if you fuck up, if you chase someone away or act desperate or wild, then you're to blame for things not working out as you'd hoped.
Love and reconciliation work is difficult. It can demand more patience and you being far more conscientious of your own behavior than some people can withstand, but if you don't at least try (or at least stop defending your bad actions with "I can't help myself,") the person most likely to be unhappy and without the things they want in this life is yourself.
And even if you get the one you want, you may come to find that they are unkind, unfaithful, selfish...so even sometimes when love spells work, all that happens is that a jerk loves you now. :P
Alrightey, back to sleeping in (because I've not had a day off in WEEKS, and have been working 16+ hours a day, uggg, so today is my sleeping in day) and writing that spell article for you. :)

Everyone's favorite fat cockatiel has ended his 15% off special. But, don't despair, there are still a few ways to save this December...just not at such amazing rates. ;) Thanks to everyone who participated. My little Lou appreciates it! :)
I'm compelled to write this because of course I go through the same thing almost every year around this time, but I'm not the only one. Instead of making it out like I'm the only person chasing someone down to pay an invoice if it's between Thanksgiving and Christmas (totally not true - I'm totally not alone here,) I'm going to alert those of you who may not have realized something... So, here goes:
Every year around the holidays, almost any independent contractor you know - or anyone who gets paid by commission, - will suffer from not getting paid. :P This isn't because people are intentionally mean or selfish - in fact, it's the opposite as they often want to buy gifts for their family, and so they sacrifice their personal appointments or put off purchases for themselves. However, when you miss an appointment, put off a sale, or ask to pay a bill super late (like after Christmas,) you're putting a small business or an independent contractor or a person being paid by commission in a bad place. See, we have families and friends to get gifts for, too - and bills, and regular purchases we need to make for our homes and businesses. We DO plan for the season to be "thin" as far as sales. I actually make sure I have regular sales all through the month to help consumers pay less. I know others save a lot through October and early November and buy their gifts early. People stay open later. People pay bills a few months in advance. But...if you find yourself being paid 1/3 to 1/4 of your regular income for an entire month...that can kind of suck no matter how much you plan. :P
Now, everyone's got families and friends and people that they want to celebrate with during the holiday season, and one thing I think we can all do to HELP people in small businesses, and who are independent contractors, and/or who get paid by commission, is to KEEP APPOINTMENTS, and PAY ON TIME when you do have an appointment or make a purchase. Sure, maybe you need to miss something this month, but let the business know well ahead of time, and that will give them the opportunity to sell that time to someone else, or to take steps so that whatever they couldn't sell to you, they can now sell to someone else.
AND EVEN OUTSIDE OF THAT....this is a stressful season for many people. PLEASE try to be nice to each other. Try to remember everyone has their own problems, and if you're sad or angry, you taking that out on anyone because it's the holidays may mean you bringing someone in a similar emotional state to your own even farther down, just by you being mean, grumpy, or rude. The holidays are supposed to be about giving, and being kind to those around you. If you feel like a lump of crap, (and hey, I've had a few Crappy Christmases myself, heh,) try to fix that by either removing yourself from others until you can brighten up a bit and not share the crappy mood, OR at least don't take it out on everyone. ;) We're all in the same boat - it can be a stressful time.
I do try to run a lot of sales during this season because I understand how poor it can make everyone. I do try to keep everyone on an even keel if I can (not always easy when it's 2am or something and I just spent an hour with you and you asked to pay me 2-3 weeks later, haha,) and that doesn't mean I love the holidays, or that I love earning less, haha - it's because I don't want to be the person making someone else have a bad holidays (except maybe a few people, but they're jerks, and I don't work for them.)
I'm not saying this to be preachy. I'm saying this because sometimes I need to read something like this and remember to get the bah humbugs out of my system before I go outside (that shit's contagious!!) and make everyone else mad or angry, and I'm sure a few of you needed this reminder too.
Also, all I want for Christmas is Chris Hemsworth dressed like Thor...and a real live elephant. An African Elephant. One of those giant ones. So I can drive it around the city and have it poop on compact cars. I mean...if you wanted to buy me something special that is. ;)
I'm thinking a love spell should come up next, so stay tuned. Thanks for reading! :)

I'm glad to finally have this post up. I realize it's the season (the Holidays) for this, but when I was about to post this the other night, I had an inordinate amount of invoices out and I was like "Holy heck, all those poor people are going to think I am trying to cast this spell on them, and it is so not true!" So, rather than scare the hell out of a few people (many of who were in no way wronging me, they just were being a little slow to pay and there were no hard feelings or suspicions they were not going to pay,) I decided to wait for my "unpaid invoices" notice in my payment processor to go down by a few numbers before I posted this, as the (now deleted) post said. ;) To anyone with an unpaid invoice out with me at this writing, you're cool, I am NOT using this spell on you!
OK, I'm glad I got that out of the way. (Again, no, I'm not trying to come get you, haha, so no worries.)
So, first what you'll need is a target who owes you money - this money must be contractually (be this via written agreement, spoken agreement or written contract,) owed to you. If little Jimmy Jerkface stole your lunch money 20 years ago, this probably won't work, though you're free to try if that $4 is so dear to you. ;)
This spell is best begun on a Saturday, during a waxing moon, and in the hour of Saturn.
Outside of that you will need: An image of the target or a personal item belonging to the target Four black candles of the same size A black-inked pen 2 purple 7-day glass-encased candles** Powdered calamus root The pictured sigil of Saturn
Setup: The altar will be slightly complicated here, so bear with me. At each of the cardinal points, you'll place one of your black candles (North, East, South, West,) and then using powdered calamus root, draw a line from the North to the East, then the East to the South, then the South to the West, and the West to the North, making a square type shape, and as you draw each line say "(Name of target,) I bind you within this square, to be held here until you pay me the money you have promised and yet still owe."
Place the image or personal item in the center of this square.
Using your black pen inside the left triangle of the sigil pictured, write the name of your target, and inside the right triangle write "pay me" (or name of person you are working for) all that you owe me right now." Place this over the image of the target or the personal item. Place a purple seven day candle over this.
Light the black candles starting from the North, moving to the East, then to the South, then to the West. Say "(Full name of target) you are bound here, and here you remain until there is no debt between us." Now light the central purple candle, and hold your hands (well, avoid being burned - yes someone will ask, haha, - but avoid burning yourself, it's OK if your hands are outside the "square,") on either side of this candle, envisioning your target paying you all the money they owe you and try to keep this image in your mind's eye until you here a pop or a crackle from the candle. This is the sign to begin. Say "Spirits of Saturn, (Full name of target,) is bound by their word and by their promise to pay me (amount,) and I call upon you to bind them tightly to their contract, and give (Him/her) no rest, no sleep, no comfort until (he/she) pays me the amount that is past due! (Name of target,) the spirits of Saturn come to you, they call upon you, they pull upon your heart, upon your hand, upon your mind - I have conjured them to hold you to your contract. If you seek peace, pay me what you owe me now!"
Drop your hands and allow the candles to burn for a time - you will extinguish the outer candles, and you need to burn them for a total of 9 days. Probably allowing these to burn 20 or so minutes each day (allowing them to burn out on the last day,) will suffice. Each day for a total of 9 days, light the outer candles, and say the chant during the hour of Saturn.
The person should pay you very quickly (and may suffer some nightmares and discomfort until they do. ;)
As always, use wisely. If someone owes you $10, probably best to let that go. :)
*As in my previous post, this is for money ACTUALLY OWED TO YOU. Money you gave freely with no promise of return, money you paid someone for a job (the agreed on amount), or money no one ever agreed to pay you are not monies you will collect with this spell. So, like I said,if you think yours truly is a big stupid dumbhead who owes you 10 million dollars for existing, you will not get that money from using a spell like this. I'm sure a few people will try, haha. But seriously, verbal and written agreements are binding and can work if you use this spell - if someone said they'd pay you back, go ahead and try, mwahahahaha. **These burn approximately 5 days, and you will want this light to be burning for 9. When the first candle burns very low, take a long match, and a piece of stick incense, and light the second candle using the flame from the first, then smother (do not blow out) the flame of the first candle, replacing the second where the first one stood on the altar.
UPDATED - So, someone asked me a SUPER QUESTION. :) Basically the scenario was someone promising a refund for part of some work, though the contract given was that the person was not entitled to free work or a refund to the work (it was basically a construction/addition on a house dispute). The person asking the question had signed a contract prior to being promised the amount and had not received it according to them. In this case, the person who has promised something in return or a refund or free work would actually probably not be as affected by this spell as another would be. The reason here is that - at least from what I can tell historically, through my own trial and error (and that of friends) - the written contract actually is more binding. I tried this some years ago when I purchased something online without reading the fine print and then was charged $150 for something else a month later. :P When I called the merchant (having clicked that I did read the terms and conditions, silly me,) they refused to refund the money, and cited that it was in the fine print that I'd be charged again. I didn't get the money back. :P Admittedly they didn't promise to refund it (they were a shitty merchant,) but I have suggested this to others in the past privately and it seems written contracts often supercede verbal agreements when using this spell. :P That said, you can still try... It's a nifty working, and does help get you paid back, but it does has it's limitations. Oh, and as I learned the hard way, always read the fine print when you sign a contract. ;)
