Good Tuesday to you all! I hope everyone is having a great day. I know it is back to work. But there is a good news this week, it is a short work week. I am sure you have already figured that out, lol! I thought about doing something just for the fun of it but I didn’t know how you might react. You remember yesterday, I mentioned in one of my posts that the Twelve Days of Christmas started. Well I thought about take each day and tracking down a photo of that day’s gift and posting it. Then the next day take the previous day’s gift and add to it with the next day’s gift. I was just curious to see what a massive amount of gifts this person gave to his true love. I hope you don’t mind but after thinking about it, I think I will do it. I am sure after I start it your curiosity will get the best of you too. I have never been able to imagine that many gift and it is something I have always wanted to do. Who knows I might not be able to find twelve drummers drumming, lol! First, I got o track down the song, that is one I never learned in school. Anyway you know what I am up to now, on with the Magick……

Spellcrafting for Tuesday
A CHARM TO BREAK A TROUBLESOME HABIT
You must take a white egg, and through small holes made in each end, blow forth the contents from the shell. Plug up one end with a little softened beeswax, then fill the shell, using a fine funnel, with sour red wine. Carefully seal the second hole with more wax, and in red ink write upon the surface of the shell the name of that plaguing compulsion you would be rid of.
Take this egg in secret to a place where great rocks cover the ground. Stand there and say these words:
“Hall of blood where life has fled
Walls of bone that close me round
I break thy reign, thy yoke I shed
I cast thy powers to the ground.”
Hurl the egg against a rock so that it shall burst into fragments and the contents be spilt upon the earth. Then gather up the broken bits of shell, take them home, and grind them into a powder in a mortar. This charmed dust should be kept within a small jar, a pinch of it to be placed on the tongue and swallowed whenever further treacherous temptations may appear.
