Of course, if Uncrossing Oil exists, there must be Crossing Oil, too. Use this formula to cast a hex:
Grind cayenne pepper, Grains of Paradise, and wormwood.

Cover with mineral (baby) oil.

This Russian coffin spell is superficially similar to the New Orleans-based one, but is actually very different. The goal is not intimidation but genuine, unadulterated malevolence, The coffin, and hence the hex, is not made public, but kept hidden, the hex is more insidious and harder to lift.
Work a strand of the victim’s hair into wax or some clay. (If the clay can be crafted from their gathered footprint, this hex is believed to be even more effective.)
Mold the wax or clay into something resembling your victim.
Place this image inside a little coffin.
Bury the coffin and cover it with a rock.

Cleanse thoroughly using rosemary hydrosol or appropriate quantities of the essential oil. (Remember less is always more with essential oils. Don’t be tempted to use excessive amounts because you’ve scared yourself).
Wait at least 24 hours before considering whether to return to the original spell.
This cleansing may also be used if you are the target of a malevolent spell.

Today’s I Ching Hexagram for Everyone:
29: Dangerous Depths
Saturday, February 5th, 2011
General Meaning: Exposure to passing dangers brings good fortune to those who move beyond them. Like boaters passing through white-water rapids, when you are faced with serious challenges, you must remain alert, take all available precautions, and above all, keep going forward so as to remove yourself from harm’s way. Once the danger has passed, good fortune.
The positive aspect of challenges is that they offer an excellent chance to cleanse the senses and strengthen the spirit. Surviving crises brings tremendous reinvigoration, and sharpens the eye and mind for future challenges.
It is reckless to court danger, but critical to inner development not to shrink from it either. Those who respond to challenges most effectively are those who are able to establish an inner bubble of calm in the midst of the action. A calm center keeps one rooted in the moment, alert and focused. Courage at such times springs from focused attention, from a willingness to penetrate the moment of danger to its very core, so as to shape it and transform the situation.
Today’s Tarot Card for Everyone:
This Tarot Deck: Sacred Rose
This card could also be called the “Celestial Mandate” — that which refers us back to our reason for being, our mission in this lifetime. The Star reminds us that, in a sense, we are agents of Divine Will in our day-to-day lives. If we let go of the idea that we are supposed to be in control, we can more easily notice and appreciate the synchronicities that are nudging us along. In this way, we become more conscious of the invisible Helping Hand, and we better understand our place within — and value to — the larger Cosmos.
It’s not easy today to stay focused on the present moment because you could be so concerned about your future. However, your recollection of something from your past may be more of a problem than whatever happens next. Thankfully, this is an opportunity for you to learn how to trust in the intelligence of “now,” rather than obsessing about unresolved feelings left over from some vague memory.
You may become so obsessed with one particular idea now that it’s hard for anyone to get you to talk about anything else. Fortunately, your current thinking can actually pull you in a positive direction, but that’s not the only consideration. Voluntary downplaying the importance of your own thoughts is a wise tactic today and makes you more accessible to your friends and family.
You are being torn between your magical fantasies and the down-to-earth realities that you currently face. You’re eager to release your day-to-day worries and dance the night away with friends, but you are also concerned about leaving loose ends untied. This may be an all-too-familiar scenario for you, but you should try to forget about recreational activities now until you wrap up some old business. It will be easier to enjoy yourself once you have done the responsible thing and demonstrated your dependability.
Clean up unfinished chores early in the day so you can fully enjoy the pleasure that you so richly deserve. Even if you plan a quiet evening at home, give yourself the time and space to dream about the changes that you want to experience in the near future. There aren’t any intelligent reasons to hold back your creative vision today; you can travel anywhere you wish in your mind.
You may have thought that you would be ready for change no matter what happens, but you grow more contemplative as the day wears on. You know that you should be thankful for certain aspects of your life, yet you also are too aware of those things that still need improvement. Nevertheless, don’t focus on what’s wrong; concentrate on all the little things that you could do to continue your personal growth.
You may attempt to hold back your true intentions during the day. Even if you are sure about your feelings, you might not like the idea of others knowing what you want. Keeping things to yourself could be a waste of energy now, especially since your workmates and friends probably know more than you realize. Sharing what’s on your mind isn’t as much of a risk as it seems.
You are driven now by your own internal need to express yourself in a new and different manner. Rely on your charm and grace if you feel resistance to your efforts to do your own thing. Fortunately, you exude more common sense than you think. Focus on being true to yourself while also keeping your mind open to different perspectives. If you remain flexible in your thinking, it will be much easier to let go of control and go along with others for the sake of group harmony.
Keep to yourself for the first part of the day, and you will more thoroughly enjoy the company of others later on. Fortunately, you won’t have to hide your emotions or hold back your desires, for the Moon’s entry into your playful 5th House creates the perfect environment for you to express yourself. You’ll know when you’re ready, so don’t let anyone cajole you into reacting until the time is right.
If you’re buzzing like a busy bee, you may be too distracted today to fully appreciate the camaraderie of your family and friends. Nevertheless, you can’t say no to a potentially interesting gathering. Thankfully, once you are involved in the group, you just might forget how tired you were earlier. Allowing yourself to be vulnerable with those you trust can prove to be the exact catalyst you need.
Attractive Venus is still lagging behind the planetary pack while visiting your practical sign, and you are taking your physical and emotional needs quite seriously now. You are more somber than usual, for there are significant challenges ahead that you must face. Nevertheless, you’re still committed to the work you have already started. Be patient as you build on your accomplishments and wait for the opportunities to reap the rewards.
You have the impetus to start something new now, but you must be willing to change and grow in order to maximize the current opportunities. However, this process can be quite challenging if you are unwilling to let go of the past. Don’t hold on to what you have or you won’t be able to take advantage of the possibilities that are right in front of you.
You can gain a lot today by stopping and reevaluating your recent history. Paradoxically, this review process can also stimulate your anticipation of the future. Your life begins to take on a greater meaning as you see unstable social systems bending under the pressure of change. Meanwhile, you’re committed to finding stability in the midst of transition, even if you don’t yet know how you will manage it. Don’t worry about the details; you’ll figure things out along the way.
I plan on starting with Hexes and from there I am going to Necromancy…….The reason being I am about half way pissed off. I got up to go make some more coffee and I looked out my back door and I saw my neighbor’s back porch from a distance. My eyes immediately turned red and I would feel the energy start to build. So I got the ice bag out of the freezer, crushed up some ice and started eating on it. It helps, when I don’t have time to ground. I have a Willow Tree out front. I love to go out there and put my arms around it and gently rubbing it and talking to it. Then I sit down somewhere around it and ground. Since we have snow on the ground, I am eating ice. I will ground tonight. Anyway the reason, I am pissed. Frank (hubby) built our porch from scratch. He even fixed me a place that was blocked basically from the neighbors’ view. The man at the other home came down and told me they were getting rid of their back deck. Since it isn’t attached to their home, he wanted to know if we wanted it. I was floored. I told him I would have to talk to my husband and see what he wanted to do. Then the man’s wife comes down and brings up the same subject. I don’t know how to take this. Our deck is not that old and it sure doesn’t look like crap. I dabbled in interior decorating now and then and I am sure not going to have a piece of crap hanging off the house. I told Frank I am not getting this at all. Why? Are they that nosey to see what goes on over here? I mean I seriously do not know how to take this. If anyone has any insight into this or would love to tell me what you would do, I would be more than glad to hear it.
I stopped posting yesterday rather abruptly which I am truly sorry for. See there I go apologizing, lol! Seriously though, we have had some very strong winds around, tree limbs, phone lines, you name it, it has broken, fell or come undone during this. I was sitting right in the middle of the worse ice storms in decades about two years ago. The ice storm knocked out thousands of homes power, cable, telephones. We sit in darkest for eleven days ourself. You don’t realize how much you take the modern conveniences for granted till you don’t have them. I told my husband, I couldn’t imagine how the pioneer people made it. But then again, they weren’t use to the internet, TV with about 500 channels, lights to read by, switch to adjust the heat, did they? I guess the point is, if you aren’t use to it, then you don’t miss it. But they put up temporary lines and have been going back and installing the new, permanent ones. One of the temporary fell yesterday, fell and I just had the rotten luck of being on that circuit. The power didn’t come back on this around 9 last night. I was beginning to panic a little, I kept having flashbacks to the ice storm. Hopefully they will get the permanent wires up and I won’t have to be with internet. I hope everyone enjoys their weekend. Be Safe and Be Careful.
