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.
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.
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! :)
A prospective client sent me the following questions and I found it interesting enough to share, to which this person agreed (of course, I'm keeping them anonymous,) as I thought it was one of the more insightful consultations I've had. The prospective client is in italic type, I am in regular type. I've also discarded the personal questions about the person's problem for obvious reasons... it has just been a long time since someone asked me so many creative questions that I thought I'd share. ;)
I saw you were offering a month of work for a discount. Can this be used to get multiple 7-day castings at different times?
At this writing (12/5/16) I am actually offering a deep discount on the month service, but if someone wanted to pay the month-fee at any time for five weeks of spellcasting spread out, I'd gladly work that deal out with them, yes. It would be a huge savings for people who like me to do lots of spells for them. For other people, one round is enough and the problem is taken care of, and then I don't hear from them for like 2 years until they need my services again, haha. ;) For them, five weeks of spellwork is probably not a super investment.
Is there a fee I can pay monthly to keep you on retainer? For example, if I paid for seven days up front and then didn't need the service now, could I just pay a maintenance amount?
There would be no maintenance required. I offer what I refer to as "pre-buys" which means a week worth of work at discounts all of the time. So long as the transaction was less than 5 years ago, the money is always good. I don't need you to pay a maintenance fee like a bank would. Just like you could buy a month of work and spread the work out over time (and not for a greater cost to yourself,) so can you pre-buy a week of work. While 7-day spellcastings are my basic package, I've even had people purchase this and have me do a few individual spells instead of the full 7-day package.
I realize nothing can be guaranteed and that some expectations would be difficult to fulfill, but if someone offered you a large amount, say $2000, would you be willing to take on a case you normally wouldn't?
Probably not. I mean, I like money as much as the next person, but if I feel I can't be successful, my best answer is "I can't help you." I don't do this to be mean, or even because I want more money - I do it because I don't feel I can be of help.
If you retire, what would you do if someone had money "on retainer?" For example with my 30-day hire question, what if you retired and 2 weeks of service were left?
I've thought of retiring from the for-hire business more than once. I've been doing it for over a decade, and it's a difficult and draining job. :P That said, I would never reject my clients, students, or anyone with money on their account, even if I stopped taking new sales. I've made several good friends over the years at this job - clients - and I would never want to turn them away if they need my help. If someone had money invested in my services, I would provide these services, even if I'd entered into a new industry and was no longer offering services to the general public.
Are you going to raise your prices after your book comes out?
Probably not. I am hoping the book can actually allow me to cut back on the amount of active cases I take on, though. Right now, I work at least 12 hours a day every day.
Do you ever offer in-person services?
Rarely. The person would have to live nearby to me for me to do that. It's not that I don't want to help, but travelling long distances can be difficult.
What would you say your biggest weakness is?
I'm a horrible mailer. Horrible. I have one bill I don't pay online for this very reason, and I'm lucky since that's a payment I drop off. :( So, when I need to mail things out to people there is often a lot of issues with that. :P This is why I rarely sell material items. I've had a few people ask me if the post office blew up or something, because I'd not mailed something out to them for a few weeks. :P
If I wanted you to work for something until I got the desired end, could I pay you a weekly fee?
Yes, I've been willing to do that before. It is actually cheaper to purchase a 30 day hire than pay me on a weekly basis though. I actually work 35 days on a 30 day hire, doing five weeks of work.
Anyhow, I thought it was interesting. Most people want to know if I really really really believe I can get so and so back, or do spirits come out of my mirrors at night, or do I shoot fireballs out of my eyes. ;) This, I thought, was relevant. Anyhow, I will get back to typing up that controlling spell article, as I know many of you are getting excited for it. :)
Ah the holidays. I get a crappy birthday, a crappy Christmas, and all throughout it I get "I can pay you (some future time completely in opposition to the contract I signed when applying where the client agrees to where they say they are ready to pay now.)" This is always said after I've spent up to an hour with the person in consultation.
And the worst part? My payment processor gives you an option where you can delay you paying through them, while I get the full amount. :/
So, despite not wanting to do a sale for awhile, I said to myself "Cat, this sort of bullshit must be because of the holidays." Then I realized I can even make it sort of evil, and make it not a sale, hahaha, at least not for the people who will gladly pay me in some future time for something today! gag
So here goes - if you are ready to pay at the time your consult ends (or within an hour of said time,) I will take 10% of the price off of any service purchased. All that is required of you is to pay your bill in a timely manner (like the bill says - due upon receipt.) Now, if you're going to wait any longer than an hour? No penalty is assessed. None. You just pay full price, as in the price listed on the invoice. That doesn't help you or harm you. So long as you do not have a mis-used consultation fee, you're never penalized. Obviously as stated on my site, a misused consultation fee is applied for anyone paying over a certain amount of days past the end of the consultation.
Therefore, if you want TEN PERCENT OFF OF THE TOTAL PURCHASE PRICE OF ANY SINGLE DANG SERVICE, from NOW until 1/1/17, all you need to do is pay me within an hour of the end of your consultation (and I'll send the invoice immediately.) I'm merely rewarding the responsible. :)
OK, off to finish a few writing projects. :) Hope this helps some of you financially, and to those it won't? I mean, I know, you'll gladly pay me Tuesday for a hamburger today. ;)
While I'm sure this will read as a ton of platitudes, I do realize sometimes we all need me to point out something nice (you know that isn't like my previous post where I want to punch UPS in the balls.) ;)
This month has been pretty amazing with manifestations. A lot of stuff I did in May sort of paid out slowly and I wasn't pleased with that. I had a lot of complaints because in many cases it wasn't messy love work, and it should have been happening a lot faster. So, every day in July - and I mean every single day, - I get someone thanking me, and telling me I got them exactly what they wanted.
This might surprise you, but I don't usually know if I hit my mark until someone orders from me a second time. People don't update me more than maybe one out of every ten times when they get what they want. They'll sometimes complain practically daily until they get what they want, but never tell me I got it for them until they need something new. This month has been different.
And that means a lot to me. I work REALLY HARD at this job, with my average business day going 12-14 hours. There is only one of me, and that's why you wait 6 days to hear from me sometimes, because 10 other people are on a crying jag, and I have to write up 2 articles for this or that, and also I have to go buy this, that, and the other thing which involves a 10 mile journey, half of it on foot, etc etc. So every time someone thanks me it makes this job worth it. And this is a high-stress job, so even one person telling me I got something they've wanted for so long to come into their life can make the worst day ever into the best day ever. I can't please everyone - some people are never happy with anything anyhow, - but if I can change even one person's life for the better, that means the world to me.
So thank you to everyone who updated me in July to tell me that you have exactly what you asked me for. You've really made me a lot happier than you realize. It's not easy to wait for manifestation, and I understand this entirely because like many of you, I've had to wait for a spell for something I wanted VERY VERY DEARLY to manifest into my life, and during my wait I was anxious to have what I wanted (which, yes, I'm admitting I also get lust for results sometimes, haha.) So many of you are a gift to work for, and I appreciate it so much that you took the time to let me know the outcome. It means so very much to me.
Alright, I'll try to get some spell or bit of wisdom up shortly. Ew, squishy nice emotions and in a public place...wouldn't want everyone to know I'm not that mega-bitch I have the reputation for being, haha. ;)
If you want to mail me something you are not to use UPS. The delivery guy has put 2 notices on my door without knocking (I'm sitting five feet from the door, he doesn't knock) then shot a postcard through without knocking. So I called UPS who thought to make me drive ten miles out of the city for something which I don't know who sent it to me, what it is, or why it requires my signature, when I don't drive. I'm not paying a cab to drive me out of the city when I was sitting right the fuck here and no one bothered knocking, and for something I don't know what it is.
Until UPS gets a capable delivery driver who knocks (which is a problem I experience only with their service,) you are not to send me ANYTHING via UPS. I actually have worked with people who work for UPS, and it hurts me to say it, but up your game in the Northeast because your drivers are legendary for this shit. MOST companies deliver with signature to the office downstairs OR they knock. This is the 5th or 6th time UPS has done this to me in the last 18 months, and I try to avoid their service, especially with signature confirmation, so that should tell you something.
Anyhow, sorry if that upsets anyone's plans, and if you mailed something to me via UPS, it's leaving 2 towns over (where I won't be picking it up,) on the 15th. If you mailed me something and I've not told you it was received, then expect it to return to you. :P
Since this has been an increasing problem over the years...
I do not give substitutions for items you can't locate (or refuse to try on your own to locate,) nor do I give substitutions for actions you can't take. The substitution for anything you can't find or any action you can't take is to find a spell you have all the ingredients to and can undertake all the actions thereof.
"Quick Advice/Clarification" on an article is something to the effect of: "Can I use a votive rather than a taper candle here?" or "If I use 'Love Me' instead of 'Return to Me' oil, would that be effective on a problem where reconciling the party is unneeded?"
Spell-coaching (a paid service) is anything that would take me literally over five minutes to write a response to. So, if you're asking me to give you special custom advice regarding your situation, or you need a lot of assistance on working a particular spell or finding a particular spell, you need to PURCHASE spell coaching.
Please note the date-stamp on the article you are asking about. Some links may be out-dated. While I don't mind being alerted to an out-dated link, I DO NOT always have a replacement link for that product or store.
Also, if there is any header or notice that I no longer accept questions regarding a particular article (sometimes after a decade of abusive behaviors regarding one article, I have had enough discussion on the matter to last a lifetime,) please do not ask if you can be the exception to that rule. You are already being provided with 2000% more information than I EVER HAD when first using that spell - trust me. Maybe I have more practice in spellcasting than you do (I am almost sure that I do!) but you should be able to work any spell I've posted here with the instructions I have given. Again, quick clarification on an instruction is fine - but if you want me to customize my instructions to your needs, that is a paid service.
A few friends of mine suggested I write up a campaign to get enough for me to be able to write a book. While it might just be a lark, I do hope everyone can help out. If you CAN, then I can finally publish that book I've been promising for...oh, ten-ish years now. If you can't? Well, check it out, share amongst your buddies, make fun of my picture, etc. ;)
PS- If I get no backers within 3 days of starting the campaign, I solemnly swear to just keep the book unto myself forever and ever (or at least until the executors of my estate publish it. :) Why? Because hells bells, I get $5 and $10 here and there for support on my blog - I can only assume that many people want me to make a stinkin' book too. ;)
