Pro Witch Tip…

Pro Witch Tip #375 (again, since “Where Darkness Falls” has a witch as a main character, I consider this on-topic):

Thinking back to that “person who blabbed about the binding spell” incident… Timing can be everything. Certain phases of the Moon, and certain seasons in the cycle of the Sun through the Wheel of the Year, will empower or scupper your spellwork. If you’re the sort who puts a lot of stock in Mercury retrograde, then you’d never consider working a binding or curse during that period because the very condition of Mercury retrograde makes things rebound on their sender, or just go wonky and hare off in the opposite direction from what’s intended.

Generally speaking, this is my protocol:
— Spells of increase during the waxing or full Moon; spells of decrease during the waning or new Moon.
— Follow the life cycle of the God through the Wheel of the Year: spells for new projects when He is in His childhood phase, spells for fulfillment/completion when He is the ripe grain in the field, spells for closure/endings when He is old and dying.
— Astronomical phenomena provide a bit of a boost to certain things, but any kind of spell can be performed at any time. I’ve done spells for increase/prosperity during Samhain season at the waning Moon and had them turn out just fine.
Any questions, feel free to ask. 🙂

Since “Where Darkness Falls” involves witchcraft, this post is actually on-topic…

Inspired by a post on a FB witchery group…

Pro Witch Tip #374: If you do a binding spell on somebody (wrap photo around a stone, cast into a river, etc), you DO NOT GO AROUND TELLING EVERYBODY YOU KNOW, so that word eventually gets back to your target. Especially when your target has witch friends of their own.

That’s a sure way to get an “uncrossing and return to sender” spell fired right back at you. Probably with a lot of extra spin to make it hurt even worse (and a clause in there taking advantage of the fact that you’re blabbing about what you did).

Plus they KNOW where you cast the stone into the river, so they can go right there and perform the uncrossing/return to sender spell on the very spot, or damned close to it.


Spirituality: A prayer to Isis and Apollo, that my upcoming purchases may go well

As many of you already know, I’m nervous at the prospect of purchasing a reloadable MasterCard with which to order my author copies from Amazon in the USA (since I’m in the Canadian market zone and they don’t have a printer here). As some of you also know, I am a practicing and initiated Wiccan.

So today (in one of the three or so spiritual posts I allow myself per year) I’m sharing my altar prayer, used this morning for the MasterCard I’ll be purchasing and my upcoming Amazon transaction, in case anybody else should find themselves in need of something similar at some point. Feel free to adjust to suit your own needs. I have no problem posting this for folks to read, since with every re-reading, in my opinion, these words are re-imprinted upon the universe.

MasterCard Altar Oct 15 2018

Lady Isis and Lord Apollo, and all Goddesses and Gods who may aid me,I pray that I am doing what it is best to do in this matter. I pray that the MasterCard I purchase may work perfectly, that the Amazon site will process it quickly, that there will be no hiccups at any point in the process. May all work exactly as it should, and may there be no unseemly delays.

As I will, so mote it be — and as Thou will, by Whose will all things are done.

And to Lord Hermes, God of commerce and travel and speed, I also humbly pray: that the Internet may work properly, that the payment may go through immediately, that the packers may do their work efficiently, and that the delivery people may do their own work swiftly. Let this transaction be perfect, with all aspects working exactly as they should.

Blessed be Thou forever, in Thy holy realms, and may some of Thy blessings fall also upon me, who hath called upon Thee in my time of need. As I will, so mote it be!
