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!
Just thought I would extend an invite to those of you who want to discuss the occult with me outside my blog.... :D I have a YahooGroup and recently....it has been terribly quiet in there. If you are a bigmouth occult mastermind, feel free to join me at the Mystical Melting Pot - all occulties and paranormalists are welcome...especially those who like to chat a lot about the occult or have questions and want to learn about it. All fluffy bunnies will be roasted, however.
Well, truth be told, Beltaine is my favorite holiday, but I'm a big fan of Samhain/Halloween/Day of the Dead, or whatever you wish to call it. Perhaps it is because it is sort near my birthday, but this seems to be one of the times during the wheel of the year that yours truly is extremely powerful and potent... Well, I'm always pretty potent, but around this time of year I can be too much so. ;) Why? Because the veil between the otherworld and this one is so dang thin! If you're anything like me, about a week before this day, the air seems to almost pick up a hum, as if you can hear the goings on in the otherworld. Yay!
It's also a GREAT time to pick up real black candles for cheap. Any other time of the year, the price is just through the roof, but right now, a box of black tapers would probably not hit you up for that much. I also pick up decorative reaper candles specially made for the holiday, as they are a lot cheaper right now than if I have to pick up a similair item in a occult supply shop.
It's funny, but past the obvious spiritual/magic/kal aspect of this time of year, that I also see it as a sort of harvesting or storing up time...the real reason (or so I am told) for the original Samhain holiday... to reap the harvest.
Since I am low on funds, the mass amount of "yearly supply buy" will probably come between thanksgiving and Xmas/Yule this year, unfortunately, but I definitely recommend this time of year for all of you to pick up hard-to-get items while they are cheaper and less-hard to find.
Sometime this week we will discuss honoring the dead for Samhain, but for now this is all that there is. :)
Well, all is not well in the world of Miss Cat today... I actually went out last night and had a bar tab of $9.15 that was rejected by my credit card...which is a debit card, so I wrote a check. My friend with me couldn't spot me the cash, but I can't find fault with him...he did buy the beer so we could watch the rest of the Sox game...however - HOW EMBARASSING! :P And here I was thinking I had a balance of at least $25... Well, its off to the bank I go today! ;) It's okay - your favorite occult mastermind apparently carried a one that wasn't there (I never said I was a math mastermind!) :D Ah well, and here I was thinking myself bright for not taking cash with me last night.... ;) Easy enough to cover, but still not fun...thank goodness I live out in the boonies or else I would not be able to write a check to cover booze at a bar!
Anyhow, just thought I'd share this interesting tidbit. More today - I promise! :D
I am pre-coffee right now, so 'scuse me if I get a little off-topic. Today's topic is the one of returning a lover/loved one through spellwork. It's one that will probably come up more than once, so I am not going to spend a helluva lot of time on it. ;)
A lot of the requests I get involve someone desperate to get their lover back. Generally, these requests follow some sort of time line in which the petitioner asks me for help about 2-4 weeks post break up, though I have had some come in as late as 5 years past the end of the relationship. I try to be as understanding as possible in these cases - the first guy I fell in love with took me 3 years to get over, but I also attempt to illustrate to the client that: a) I cannot guarantee the return of the lover, and b.) I DEFINITELY cannot guarantee the success of the relationship once the lover has returned. These folks seem intent on finding the person who can drag the object of their love back, brainwash said "object," and keep them put. To be honest, doing just that isn't an impossibility, but it have yet to hear of a case where accomplishing that task has been pleasant for the client or the object of their desire.
Before I go on, I would like to interject that I am not in anyway trying to instill some sort of ethical nonsense about what is right or wrong or black/white/grey in the feild of magic/k. Your ethics are yours, mine are mine, and they are all the product of human conditioning, ergo, not some sort silly "good" and "evil" gibberish, because I have yet to find proof that the Divine or the universe have any sort of defined "good" or "evil" as those are HUMAN concepts.
However, there are reactions and results that I have witnessed time and again in regards to my own spellwork and the spellwork of others. I can only speak from my experience and those I know of, and warn or instruct you on the likely outcome should you persue it. They are neither good or bad, just the reaction, such as if I prick my finger with a needle, I will bleed...as it is the most common and likely reaction - ie, the sun might not rise tomorrow (nothing is definite,) but I would still bet you money that it will.
Digressing back to the topic at hand, the returning of a lover through magic/kal means is not always pleasant for both target and practioner/petitioner, so the person who wishes to do so must ask themselves..."Is this what I really want?" A million immediate "yes"-es fill the auditorium... ;) Why the sly smile on my face? Aha, but I know something about this, and from personal experience, too.
Firstly, there is the amount of energy that may be required in bringing the person back. If this is all over some trivial arguement, and the client/practioner is just "freaking out" because they had a fight with their loved one a week ago, and nothing has yet been resolved, then it is as easy as can be. In fact, reconciliation magic/k may not even be what is needed. Simply use some peace and healing spells, and KA-BLAM, the happy couple is reunited. However, if this break-up is the product of years of fighting and the once-happy couple has been parted, say, for 8 months... :P My goodness, the things I have to call up just to get that person back to you... So it can be done, but to what degree would I recommend it? Once the energy is used to "drive" the lost love back to you, the fun part is, that energy will only keep them with you for about one moon cycle - the rest is up to you in the mundane. Perhaps it was a stupid fight, and you two only need to be reunited breifly to smooth things out... But generally, things can go from bad to worse in a short matter of time, especially if the break up was not over anything "stupid" or "unfounded."
The truth about love is that love itself can be a very coercive beast despite the fact that it is terribly blind. Love makes us stupid with the belief that it is the one thing that can make all of our suffering worthwhile, despite the fact that it is not returned, but rather twisted back on us so it is a bit like willingly feeding the beast that is gnawing you in half. Sometimes, suffering for love does pay off, but oftentimes, it really doesn't. I'm a meatball in this case, too, so don't feel bad. ;) We love someone, and figure if we can just get them to stick around for a little while, we can make things the way they were when they were "good," even though the last time they were "good" about 2 years previous to when we actually broke things off with the lost love...and here we are, say 4 months post-break up... :P So in desperation, many folks use reconciliation/return to me love spells to get the object of their desires to return, and then pummel the person with love spells, and so on...
The end result in several of these cases is this. The person does come back... But at what price? It isn't that sweet, innocent love you had when you started. No, siree, it is not. Now the client/practioner is desperate to get the target to remain, so they launch love spells. Well, the target stays, but they still act like a complete horse's butt to you. Love spell after love spell is launched in true attack form... This can go on for years, and I have seen people do just that. The client/practioner attatches themselves to a target who remains for no reason that the target can figure out, thus making the target more and more abusive and shifty, while the client/practioner falls deeper and deeper in love with the target... Eeek, a vicious cycle indeed. No, this doesn't always happen, but if you force someone to stay with you using love spells, it sure as hell often does. At best, your target isn't going to "change" in the way you need them to to make the love affair work.
My suggestion? Okay, go ahead and use that return to me spell. It's okay. Maybe you can fix things. I don't personally know you, but go ahead and give it a whirl. Now, when the target is back, go ahead and do one or two coercive love spells if you feel the need...but leave it at that. Be pleased that you got the closure you needed if it doesn't work. Tying someone to you with love magic/k wil just make both of you nuts.
Sometimes, even the reconciliation spell doesn't work. Why? Well, hey, nothing is foolproof.... Generally, I say try again, and if you see no results, it probably is a moot point.
Okay, kiddies, coffee is done... perhaps more on this later.
As always this is just my opinion and nothing more. :D
I seem to have been slacking in regards to keeping up my ancestor/spirit altar, and thusly, I am very poor and broke. ;) I would do some money spells, but the issue is quite pressing, compunded by the fact that people seem to think I can materialize occult supplies for free... So they petition my help, and yet offer no compensation. This is pretty bad, considering I see plenty of disingenuine mages charging $1000's and genuines making $100-$500. Grrr... You know, I have decided to put up a DONATION button, since I hate to cyber-beg, but all the freebie seekers are definitely abusing the priviledge. If I can afford to pay TypePad, there will be a valuable and considerable amount of occult and magic (magick) advice as well as spells available for you for free. The real stink-o part of being this poor is that it is effecting my other job by making me incapable of getting the design and art supplies I need to make money doing the other thing I do best. Well...actually there are 3 things I do the best, but only one person (the Fella) is allowed to use the 3rd, and not being a whore, I don't market it. :D
I'm also going to try to scan in some art pieces so you can buy some or employ me for your design needs, but today is not the day to scan. ;)
Today, my lovelies, we do shall an easy money spell, in the spirit of all of us wanting to make some money!
(just thought I'd get that Red Sox picture in...ha ha,)
You will need
One green taper,
A candle Holder,
A fireproof container such as a pie plate or cake tin,
4 Silver coins of the same type (if they aren't real silver, silver color will do,)
A push pin, needle, nail or similiar,
And a pen.
(optional, any money drawing oil, if you don't have money-drawing oil, use a citrusy or cinnamony scent.)
This is best done on a Sunday, Wednesday, or Thursday during a waxing moon.
Take the candle, and carve something like "Money in my pocket," or something similiar up along one side. Now, take the parchment, and write your full name 4 times on it, then turn the paper a quarter turn, and write the same statement you wrote on the candle four times across your name. Put the paper aside. Charge the candle by holding it in your hands, and sending the energy of your desires for money into it. Now, if you have it, anoint the candle with oil by placing a few drops in your hand and then running your hand from base to wick up the candle towards you 4 times - NOT down. With the remaning oil on your hands, anoint the four corners of the parchment. Now sprinkle the candle and the parchment with cinnamon. Now fold the paper towards you, turn a quarter turn, and fold it again. Place the paper beneath the candle holder, and place the 4 silver coins around the base of the holder in such a position that each one hits a point of the compass such as N, S, E, W. Now, place the candle in the holder, making sure it is stabilized and secure. Light it, and hold your hands on either side of it, envisioning a green and gold energy floing out of your power hand through the candle, with your other hand taking in the excess. (Remember, your power hand is the one you write with.) Now say, "Candle of power bring to me, all of the money that I need. Money in my pocket, Money for me, Money in my pocket, all that I need." Now tell the candle your specific financial desires; this is personal to you, and I can't tell you what to say. When you are finished, say, "My words have strength, my victory's one; this spell shall not reverse or place upon me any curse; so say I, this spell is done! As is my will, so mote it be!" Allow the candle to burn out completely. When it has, take the paper and the coins and bury them beneath your front doorstep or the base of an oak tree, and walk away without looking back; (if you can't do either, place them in a green bag, and keep them on your person until your desires are realized.)
That's all for today kiddies. Please donate to this starving artist if you can!! :D
As always, this is my opinion only, and no promise of effectiveness or ineffectiveness is made.
Phew! What a 2 weeks! Just to let y'all know... the Fella and I have worked things out for now, so I can go back to being carefree about all of that. Other than that, I have been at death's door (sorta, not really,) and also some moron chipped my front tooth (2 months after I had it fixed for the same chip,) and I have to wait until Election Day to get it fixed since my dentist has an appointment with me and a drill that day anyways. I guess its only noticable to me...but that's bad enough. But...hmm... I'm also voting for Kerry, and hoping the BoSox win the World Series....screw the Yanks...heh heh heh heh....
Now on to the occult... Hooray!
Today we are going to just put some spells up here for you occulties...at least in this post.
Controlling Spell #1
I'm not particularly fond of this spell, and have personally received so/so results on it, but I've tweaked it all a bit for you, and you guys let me know how it works out for you. Its based on a Draja Mickaharic spell from "A Century of Spells" which is published by Samuel Weiser.
You will need:
A small scrap of paper,
A new spool of black thread,
A new spool of purple thread,
Something of your target's that is small, such as a hair, a fingernail clipping, thread or tag from soiled clothes, etc,
and optional: Controlling powder or controlling oil. Use http://www.luckymojo.com if you do not know how to make this yourself.
This is best done on a Tuesday or Thursday on a waning moon. Write your target's full name on the small scrap of paper. Any type of paper will work. In the center of the paper, place the personal item, and if you chooose this option, anoint this paper/item with controlling oil or sprinkle with powder. Fold the paper away from you. Now, the packet should be very very small. Take both spools and begin wrapping the packet up in them. It is suggested that you then take a walk as you do this, the whole time thinking of your target. If you don't feel capable of this, don't, but if you do feel capable, try walking places near where your target will go. Once you have wrapped the packet entirely with both spools of thread, you should have something that looks a bit like a cocoon. Take this cocoon, and throw it high in a bush or tree where it will not be found, and walk away without looking back. You have control over your target from then on.
Controlling Spell #2
Again, this one is so/so, but it has worked for me, and is pretty easy, so give it a shot.
Yow will need:
A purple taper candle,
A fireproof candle holder,
A fireproof container such as a pie-tin or cake-tin,
A push pin, pin, needle, or nail,
A picture or personal item of the target (optional.)
This spell is best done starting on a Thursday. It has worked equally well for me in all moon phases. Take the candle, and with the needle, inscribe your target's initials all over the candle to cover it. Now, put the candle aside. Take the paper, and write your target's full name on it nine times, and then turn the paper one quarter turn, and write "Is under the control of (your name) completely" nine times. Anoint the paper and the candle with the oil, and then, placing the picture of personal item in the center, fold the paper away from you into quarters. Secure the candle into the holder, place candle and holder in the fireproof container, with the paper packet beneath the candle holder. Now, light the candle, and say to it exactly what you want your target to do. Allow the candle to burn for about 20 minutes as you concentrate on your target and what you wish from them. Then, using a candle snuffer (NEVER BLOW OUT A CANDLE,) snuff the candle out. Repeat this process the next day, and so on for a total of 7 days, on the seventh day allowing the candle to burn out completely. When it has, take the paper packet and thow it high into a bush or tree where it will not be found, and walk away without looking back.
Well, there's 2 spells for now kiddies! >:) Will be back soon with some luv spells and money spells for you.
It never ceases to amaze me how surprised other folks are to discover that even though I am an "occult mastermind" and really into the occult, that I am still a normal person. You know, don't dress all in black or look like a goth fruitcake, or gob on and on to them about how Mercury is Square Jupiter and the dark Shoggoth Lords have started Ngroth, Shoggoth aru-Nylaarhotep! Uh... Yeah. Listen, I like to watch sitcoms, and get mad at shows like the apprentice, I enjoy scary movies, and art openings, and like to play frisbee with my dog, and drink Miller Lite (yes, I am aware that its a crap beer,) and dress like anyone else... Anyone who feels the need to garb themselves in black and draw stars on their face with black eyeliner to leave the house to get a gallon of milk is either really nuts, really a geek, or just probably still in high school...or they are a member of a heavy metal band, I guess. The people who walk around looking like Marilyn Manson generally don't have a clue about the occult...usually the issue there is that their Daddy didn't love them - or he loved them too much, if you get what I'm saying. Occult people are just like people who are really into collecting stamps or watching Football...we just have a passion. ;) Now if you love football, do you go around with your face and body painted with the team logo just to leave the house to get a gallon of milk...do you paint your face and body like that daily? No? Why not? Because then you would be a freak? Ah, yes. There is having a passion about something, and then there is having a sick obsession that takes over your life...
I love the occult, and could discuss it all day - HOWEVER - I look normal (and incredibly sexy as well,) and I date a male nurse, who looks normal too (ah, looks are deceiving!) and dresses kinda preppy, and if you saw us walking down the street together, the only thing you would be remarking to yourself about is how damn fine I am, and who's the lucky bastard with the sexy brown eyes holding my hand. Yes, I am vain. >:)
The kicker here for me is that I take on clients, most of whom seem to think I have some crazy Necronomical death altar from which I cast down hideous shrieks from the cursed book... Uh... okay, I like Hoodoo, and Paganism (especially Celtic,) and Ceremonialism, have an interest in Vodou, and don't bother with the Wicca. Not into Satanism, and don't believe the Necronomicon ever existed...at least the real thing, as I realize that there IS a "Simonicon." My altar is pretty mild...less than what one would see in a good Catholic household. When I pray, I don't generally strip down and dance and speak in tongues to demons... I just pray like most folks.
It's a lovely, brisk autumn day here in New Hampshire, disrupted only by the bizarre and foolish "leaf-peepers" (the most despised tourist to all NH-ites,) tho most of the foilage is green or brown, making it pleasingly moot for those morons to infect my birthplace and home state. The Fella is still assumably choking on his post-traumatic-quarter-life-crisis crazy-pill, that reared its ugly head a few weeks ago, and (hopefully) reached its peak last Thursday (or else I might need to put him to sleep - LOL!) I spent half the night reading a John Kellerman novel...where the red-herring suspect shared the same first name as my beloved Fella. (The irony is not lost.)
There you go...isn't that pleasing? Heh heh heh...
The Fool-Proof Spell and other Fictional Creatures
Alright, ENOUGH already!!! There ain't no gal-danged fool-proof spell! If you say you have one, you are a big fat fluffy-bunny LIAR!
Also, I don't know where the f--- you people are finding these spirits, but working with angels is neither safe, nor easy. Angels are powerful non-human, never-human beings who don't particularly like YOU or any other human being, and you can whine for help from them all you want, just don't try to order one around or else it would probably eat you. They can appear human, but they aren't... remember that nifty story about the fall of Lucifer and the war in Heaven? Yeah...just because some angels took God's side and others took the Lucifer's (according to the mythos,) they were still the same type of being with similiar motives on everything else. Angelic Theurgy is just as hard if not harder that Goetic Theurgy... Didn't you meatballs ever read the Lemegeton?
Also, one platform is not neccisarily better than another... Most Pop-Wicca is watered down GARBAGE, but I wouldn't go pick a fight with a Gardenarian or Alexandrian any day of the week.... And the spirits dealt with in Hermetic and Ceremonial are some pretty tough cookies, but then again, no tougher than a Voudou lwa. It is the mage, not the platform that is better or worse than another.
Silver RavenWolf is a pariah on the world of the occult. She negates her own statements, she is a bigot, a liar, and an eager mis-educator of all newbies.
Well, that is all of the occult-ey stuff annoying me right now (LOL,) and again, this is just my opinion, of which I have a right to, just as you have a right to you yours. Rant over and out...
