Abracadabra Acudubillah

March 2, 2019

Every day since that bad
thing happened, I’ve been practicing
a spell:

how to disappear
from yourself,
within yourself.

I’ve noticed
each time I leave,
something in me keeps

going.
Something in me turns
its back on me —

someone else reflected in the mirror,
someone else answering
to my name.

We’re all born a Witch. We’re all born into magic. It’s taken from us as we grow up.

You need:
• An onion
• 12 Needles
• Black and Red Thread
• Chilli Peppers
• Spit

Select a large onion and slice it down the middle. Pull out a good amount of the center, and fill it with chilli peppers.

Close the onion and wrap a good amount of black thread right around the middle until its sturdy and closed.

Stab the needles in the onion in a circle diagonally around the entire onion.

Repeat crossing the circles, they should look like a giant “X” that circles around the onion. (6 for one circle and 6 the other).

Thread one of the circles with black thread, and the other with red.

One thread should go through each needle. When you’ve finish tie it off with a simple knot.

Place it in a bag (plastic trash bag is fine) or a box (cardboard is fine).

Visualise your enemy. Concentrate on them and speak the following verses:

“You crossed a line (name of your enemy), that much is true,
So now I’ll send my spite to you.
A wicked core will burn and ache
You crossed a line, your own mistake.

Needles sharp and eyes of thread
Sleep now as you’ve made this bed
Many layers deep it will delve
A year of bitterness, these months of twelve.”

Before you seal off the container (bag or box) spit into it if you want them to know somehow all these bad things are your handiwork.

Seal the container and dispose of the onion.

Enjoy your enemy’s discomfort.

The Witch curse

July 22, 2017

A few years ago a lady who was walking through the market square at Tavistock saw an old woman pilfering small articles from the stalls. She called the attention of one of the sellers to this, whereupon the hag swiftly turning round asked “With which eye did you see this?” “With both my eyes,” was the reply. The old woman muttered quickly to herself, and added aloud: “For meddling with what does not concern you, by this and that you shall see no more.” So saying she waved her hand swiftly across the lady’s face, not touching her, and hobbled away. Within an hour the lady lost her sight, and blind she remained until the day she died, which was in 1931.

A Popular History of Witchcraft

Gather: seeded dandelions, matches, burnable area, paper, taglock (such as locks of hair, fingernail clippings or blood).

You can choose to make a ring of dandelions, or a bundle, or simply use one. (note: the more dandelions you use the more wishes you destroy).

If you want to target specific wishes, write them down on slips of paper and wrap them around the stems of the dandelion

Place taglock in the middle of the circle, or around the bundle.

Burn the dandelions.

Dispose of them safely but keep the taglock.

Beltane Blessing

April 30, 2017

With Beltane (May Eve) upon us, this is a simple little spell to bless our garden and bring fertility and harmony to your little piece of Green. It is my belief that when conducting spells/rituals for blessings, love and happiness in general you should approach this with a happy heart and with fun it is ‘intent’ that makes any magic work after all…

You will need;

• 4 pebbles/stones
• paint and paint brush
• compass (app on your phone will be fine!)

Firstly with your compass work out which directions of your garden are North, West, East and West, when you know this keep in mind the following correspondences…
• North – Earth
• South – Fire
• East – Air
• West – Water

Choose the pebble/stone that you feel matches the most with each direction/element and then take each stone and paint a symbol or a word on each to welcome the blessing for example:

• North – Earth – Word/Growth or Protection
• South – Fire – Word/Energy or Abundance
• East – Air – Word/Harmony/Clarity
• West – Water – Word/Fertility/Joy

When you are happy with your pebbles/stones and you have taken time devising your word or symbol take them at sunrise on Beltane (May Eve) April 30th and plant each pebble in the corresponding (North, South, East, West etc) part of your garden. This must be at sunrise and you must take the time to feel your garden beneath your feet, the dew on the plants and grass, the warmth or light from the sun and any breeze that may be in the air. Welcome the elements in harmony into your garden and ask them to bless your garden to make it a happy, fertile place.

Moon

held by the anchor of tundra.

Wild

Nursed on

Content, she spills joyous laughter.

Be hole, be dust, be dream, be wind
Be night, be dark, be wish, be mind,
Now slip, now slide, now move unseen,
Above, beneath, betwixt, between.

goddess of witchcraft…

August 20, 2016

Dark Godess2

The wild goddess has passed through the city of whoredom and has emerged intact as the witch on the heath. There was never one goddess of witchcraft, but rather a thousand Ishtars: mild white, blood red, lamp black. There can never be orthodoxy. We are simultaneously possessed, annihilated and forever outside of Time.

She is immanent.

She dwells within us.
