To Banish A Woman Who Is Trying To Steal Your Lover

To Banish A Woman Who Is Trying To Steal Your Lover

To banish a woman who is trying to steal your man, put her doll in the most unpleasant, foul smelling place you can find. (A garbage dump or sewer would be splendid.) In no time at all, the woman should become very uncomfortable in her own home, job wherever she’s been waylaying your man and move away.

If you are absolutely furious with the person, you can greatly strengthen the spell by burning a dark brown candle as you work. Whichever ritual you are casting, keep at it for fifteen minutes each night until the full moon appears. In most cases, spells worked through dolls bring fairly prompt results. However, if your enemy resists a spell, start it again at each new moon and keep working it until the full moon appears. As with love dolls, hate dolls should be wrapped in non-synthetic fabric and hidden carefully away when you’re not working with them.

To Harm A Victim in Revenge

To Harm A Victim in Revenge


  • (1) Black 7 knob candle
  • (1) Black 7 day candle in glass
  • (1) photograph of your victim
  • (7) photocopies of the same picture
  • (7) large pins (hatpins are best)
  • (1) bottle of Black Art oil (optional)
  • a small amount of dust swept from the inside or step of a mausoleum

1. Spend a short amount of time (15 minutes or so) meditating on the ways your victim has wronged you, enough to really get your anger piqued.
2. Dipping one of the pins into the Black Art oil, carve your victim’s name into the top of the black 7 day candle.
3. Shove the same pin into the top knob of the 7 knob candle, picturing the pin going into your victim.
4. Anoint the 7 day candle with Black Art oil, along with a pinch (just a pinch mind you) of the graveyard dust.
5. Taking one of the rolled photocopies, light one end, and light the 7 day candle with it, saying:

Even as the traitor’s breath
Goeth forth he perisheth
By the secret sibilant word
That is spoken unto death

6. Light the 7 knob candle with the same rolled photocopy.
7. Concentrate on the 7 knob candle’s flame, again meditating on the wrongs done you by your victim, while it burns just the top knob. It may help to hold your hand about a foot or so above the flame, using the pain (be reasonable here) to fuel your anger and add emotion.
8. When the flame reaches the next knob down, snuff the candle (don’t blow it out). This is best done by pinching the wick with your fingers.
9. Leave the 7 day candle burning, and repeat all but step two daily for seven days.

By the way, doing grevious bodily injury to someone carries its own consequences even without invoking the mythical threefold law.

It is also important to note that while revenge spells are more potent than spells for simply injuring someone, revenge spells should only be employed by someone who has been wronged, and only placed on the person who wronged them! Otherwise, since the only person making an unwarranted attack is you, you run the risk of being the victim of your own revenge spell.

To Ensure A Lover Never Causing Heartache to Another

To Ensure A Lover Never Causing Heartache to Another

If the man is a real card with whom no woman’s love is safe, use this spell to make certain that he never breaks another heart. Stick some straight pins into a chicken heart and roast it over an open fire. While it’s cooking say:

“As this heart does broil and burn;
So make (name the cad) heart to yearn.
I wish him neither last nor love.
Till all stars drop from heaven above.”

To Insure Quarrels Between Lovers

To Insure Quarrels Between Lovers

To insure quarrels between your man and his new lady love, pulverize verbena leaves and scatter the powder in a place where you know they often walk. If you’re still on speaking terms with him, invite him to your house and cast this spell just for good measure. Approach him from the left side and sweep under his feet with your broom.

No woman will marry him for at least a year.

To Cause Physical Weakness

To Cause Physical Weakness

A very ancient spell for causing physical weakness in someone who has wronged you is to take a new knife and cut a lemon into quarters. While you cut, concentrate on the injury done to you and whisper:

“As the fibers of this fruit fall asunder, so too
the bands of (your enemy’s name) strength.”

The object of the spell will immediately feel a cutting pain in his heart and a general weakness throughout his body.

To Cause Insomnia

To Cause Insomnia

To cause insomnia, steal a piece of your enemy’s clothing and a few strands of his hair. On a moonless night, sprinkle the clothing with bits of straw; then burn the hair and rub the clothing with the ashes Bury the whole shebang in ground near your enemy’s home. He’ll toss and turn in his bed for weeks afterward.



Take a small clear crystal, an acorn, some rosemary and mandrake and a bit of green silk
or cotton. It doesn’t need to be a big piece. Cast your circle and creating a pouch from
the herbs, bless them with each element saying:
“While this dwells within,
there will be protection without.
Cleanse and charge this charm,
element of against all who wish me ill!”
Now hang this somewhere not too obviously, like hiding it in a corner or over a window.
This will protect you ’til next Samhain when you should burn it in the sacred fire, crystal and all.
If it is not too tainted, the fire will just cleanse the crystal and you’ll be able to retrieve it
from the ashes but I always recommend just getting a new one.



This spell is really a conjuration of powers to compel either a man or a woman to desire
the operator of the spell. By desire, we do not necessarily mean in a caring or romantic
way, but more in the way a starving person craves a meal. This is not a “love spell”,
but more like a summoning and controlling spell.
The Conjuration
On the full Moon, at the hour of Midnight, Light two black tapers.
Write the name of the person to be summoned on a piece of parchment paper, and
place it one the alter along with a photograph or other image of the desired.
Light the charcoal burner, or light charcoal in a cauldron, and drop on some frankincense.
Once the frankincense is burning, hold the Pentacle high within the circle and say aloud:
I sauté thee and conjure thee,
O beautiful Moon, O most beautiful Star, O brilliant light which I have in my hand.
By the air that I breathe, by the breath within me, by the earth which I am touching:
I conjure thee. By all the secret names of the spirit princes living in you.
By the ineffable and secret name Tetragrammaton and all the other names of power,
I conjure thee. By you, O resplendent Angel Gabriel, with the planet Mercury, Prince,
Michael, and Melchidael, I Conjure thee!
I conjure you again, by all the secret names of Tetragrammaton, so that you may send
the power to oppress, torture and harass the body, mind, and soul of [name of the desired
person here], she (he) whose name is written here,
(hold up parchment)
So that she (he) shall come unto me, and agree willingly to my desires,
neither liking nor loving nobody in the world, for as long as she (he) shall remain unmoved by me.
(drop picture and parchment into charcoal burner)
Let her (him) now begin to feel the torment of my absence!
Go then! Go at once! Go, Melchidael, Baresches, Zazel, Firiel, Malcha, and all those who are with thee!
I conjure thee by the Great Tetragrammaton to do my bidding, lest, by the power, I cast you out,
or into the abyss. Obey my will, and I promise to release you to return to your home in the neither
regions from whence thou came. Blow out the tapers, Close the Circle.



This spell will inflict serious pain and sores on thine enemy for a period of 3 strange days.
After which the spell is lifted he is made well again.
Take a black candle and place a picture of thine enemy in front of you and tilt
the candle so the wax drips upon the would be victim in the picture.
Visualize the wax burning sores into the body of thine enemy.
While doing so, recite the following 3 times
“As I do this candle spell
Bring thine enemy 3 nights of hell
Candle black, black as night
Bring him pains of flesh tonight!
lesions on his skin will grow
Afflict him with a painful blow
Sores and pain afflict him now
for 3 nights he’ll wonder how
Dukes of darkness, Kings of hell
Smite thine enemy, bring him hell
when 3 nights of pain have past
Make him well, well at last”.
After sitting and thinking about the sores that will inflict your enemy and the
pain he will suffer you may then extinguish the candle. When 3 nights have
past tear up the photo and say the following.
“When 3 nights of pain endured,
I lift this curse rest assured
Darkness leave him, go away,
the curse is lifted now, today!”



Take a handful of earth and gaze into it.
Put all your troubles and thoughts of distress into it.
State exactly what it is that’s troubling you.
When finished, throw the dirt behind you and walk away without turning around to look at it.



This is the image of my would be victim
It I hang from a single thread
In a place no one shall see
It will bring fear in the heart of him who shall harm me
He will be binded by fear from harming me further
he will be binded by fear from harming me at all
I will tie a knot in the thread when I wish to secure the fear until I break it
So mote it be!

The Fourth Rule of White Magick: Must be cosmic balance

The Fourth Rule of White Magick:
There must be cosmic balance

Though it is important, this rule is sometimes forgotten.
As mentioned earlier, even the fluttering of a butterfly wing affects the energies of the universe. So when you take from the cosmos at a time of need, you must redress the balance by a practical gift at another time when you are able to give. This need not be financial giving but should involve positive effort. There isn’t a time limit and if you are surviving on two hours’ sleep with a teething baby, the cosmos won’t charge interest on unpaid dues.
Sometimes you can pay back into the same area from which you took the energies. For example, if you used the power of the sea or a river in your spell to launch a venture, you could in the everyday world join a campaign for clean water in the Third World, help a harassed new mother with her washing and ironing or plan to feed the local ducks in winter when no one else bothers.
Occasionally perform an open-ended ritual to send out good vibes or healing to wherever it is most needed or to say thank you for your life, even if it is not perfect right now (it may suddenly and dramatically improve after the ritual).
Equally when you blow out your altar candles try to send the light to people who are being cantankerous or spiteful in the hope that it will brighten their aura. It may take a whole lot of butterflies to shift negativity but it is possible (and then you have some credit in the cosmic pot).

The Third Rule Of White Magick: Ask for enough for your needs & a little more

The Third Rule of White Magick:

You can ask for enough for your needs and a little more
Magick can be used for any area of your life where you need power, money, healing or protection. There is nothing wrong in asking for the resolution of an urgent problem. After all, you can’t be drawing down lunar energies or healing rainforests successfully if you are worried sick about the bald tire on your car and you’ve got to drive your grandma to the hospital for her annual check-up the next day.
Witchcraft is and always has been about real people and their daily needs. As the Christian Lord’s Prayer says, “Give us this day our daily bread.” The religion of witchcraft is no less caring.
Our ancestors’ seasonal and domestic rituals were based on the need for enough food, shelter, and clothing. These were days when the harvest or the hunt was crucial to survival. The necessity of enough rain and sunshine for the growth of the seeds and animals formed the focus of seasonal rites. In societies that still depend on hunting, fishing or the harvest, these seasonal rituals have maintained their urgency and central position in the religious life of the community.
As long as your needs are realistic, you can usually obtain the resources you asked for, plus maybe an unexpected free upgrade, by doing even a simple spell. Be sure that your heart is in it and that you suspend logic–at least while casting the spell.
You can ask for love, health, healing, career success, fertility, concentration and an improved memory to pass an examination or take a test. As long as you do put in the necessary hours of studying or earthly effort to bring your wishes to fruition, magick can give you the extra boost and the confidence to succeed.

The Second Rule of White Magick: What is sent out comes back threefold

The Second Rule of Magick:

What You Send Out Comes Back Threefold
This is a great incentive to do magick to help others and for the environment.

If you use magick to send healing, love or abundance to other people, the same qualities will come into your own life unexpectedly in ways you need them, with three times the intensity.
Equally, if you send out negative thoughts or wishes in a spell to a nasty gossiping neighbor, you may well succeed in making the target of your spells unhappy. But this may make her gossip even more. What is more, similar unhappiness or nastiness will come back into your own life three times as powerfully–even if the person you are sending bad thought to deserves them. Bitterness and anger are natural emotions, best shared with a loving friend or relative or relieved by an hour digging the garden and not amplified in a magickal way to pollute the cosmos.
You know yourself that if you wake in a happy mood, you smile and everyone responds positively to you because your energy field is radiating happiness and so attracting it back. Think of the cosmos as a giant aura or energy field and do your share of Mary-Poppins-style magick.

The First Rule of White Magick: Do as you choose/harm no one

The First Rule of Magick:

You are free to do as you choose as long as you harm no one.
This rule sounds deceptively simple to keep. However, scientifically it has been shown that a butterfly fluttering its wings subtly alters the energies of the universe. Therefore any decision, act or spell must affect others. We should never use magick to interfere with the free will of others, though there are binding spells that can restrict the effects of a person’s negative behavior.

Of course in order to survive emotionally and sometimes to survive at all, you cannot always avoid hurting others in everyday life or in magick. So magick does involve a lot of careful thought and evaluation and usually relates to what is happening in our everyday lives.
Supposing you needed more money each month to pay the bills, You know a senior colleague at work is holding a comfortable, well-paid position under false pretences. She is leaving you to do her work and taking the credit. However justifiable your resentment you should not do a spell to get her fired. If you were subsequently offered her job you would never be happy in it because you got it by negative magick. You could instead do spells to raise your own positive profile at work so you do get offered promotions and also to take earthly steps to limit your colleague’s plagiarism. You could in addition, cast spells so that you would find a better-paid job where you were appreciated. Usually such free-loaders are noticed by higher management and may get moved on naturally.

The Rules of White Magick

The Rules of White Magick 

The rules of white magick are very moral. Some witches do practice magick while actively following a religious faith, because there is no need to compromise. You need integrity of the highest order when practicing witchcraft. Christians are afraid they will be damned in hell because they are attracted to magick. The main misconception is that witches worship the devil. In fact the old horned god was a hunting god and witches do not believe in a devil as such.
Witches believe we choose to do wrong and so are accountable for any wrong words or actions. We can’t blame a devil for tempting us, only our inner desires. Witchcraft accepts polarity in the expression of both goddess and god energies. It also recognizes that evil is a fact as much as good and can’t be eradicated once and for all. However, we should all work to increase goodness in the world, and to contain and minimize the effects of those who choose to do harm.

The same polarity is described in Oriental philosophy as yang and yin, each of which contains the seed of the other, god and goddess, male and female, light and darkness, action and receptivity, hot and cold, summer and winter, dry and wet. Neither is better than the other but when one reaches its limits or extremes it must give way to the other, just as day follows night and night day. At the Spring Equinox (around 21 March in the northern hemisphere, six months later in the southern) light and darkness are equal. Thereafter light increases till the Summer Solstice around 21 June, after which darkness begins to multiply till the balance is restored on the Autumn Equinox around 22 September in the northern hemisphere. The darkest nights and shortest days last until 21 December, the Midwinter Solstice, after which light slowly increases once more. In the magickal wheel of the year this dynamic struggle represents our own inner change and dynamics.

In magick, therefore, you are accountable for your actions and can’t just say sorry about three Hail Marys and be absolved. We have to try to put it right or carry the bad deed or karma (another Eastern Buddhist and Hindu concept) with us.

White Magick

White Magick

Like any spiritual force, magick is neutral, whatever its form. In the past, and even today in some parts of the world, formal religion can be used to justify all kinds of cruelty and intolerance. Magick used for dark purposes is really about power and sometimes people do hide behind the name and practices of witchcraft to abuse the vulnerable, whether physically, sexually or psychologically.
Usually these folks aren’t really devil-worshippers as they claim, but have watched some nasty inaccurate horror film about satanism and get themselves into all kinds of psycholgical as well as psychic minefields, not to mention the dreadful harm they do to others — and to the good name of witchcraft.
Almost as harmful in terms of misinformation and causing psychological damage, though not intentionally are witch cult films that glorify special effect spells with fire, sulphur and blood sacrifice, ritual sex and medieval demons unleashed to grant their wishes.
To real witches all life is sacred even that of the smallest insect. If you’re looking for wild sex, forget witchcraft. You’re more likely to get a list of herbs to learn or the altar silver to polish at your local coven than an invitation to attend a moorland orgy.
White or positive magickal practice, the kind recommended in this and other books by responsible witches and organizations such as The Children of Artemis, probably the best on- and off-line resource, is a highly moral and responsible code. Common sense is the key and covens are like gold dust to find. You can be sure if you are offered instant initiation in some lonely place or after a few private lession; you should drink up and leave fast.
Natural magick is by its simplicity naturally protective and reassuring. However, in case we do get intoxicated by our own powers, floods, whirlwinds, volcanoes and earth tremors are a sharp reminder that we work with and do not control mother nature.

Banishing Magick

Banishing Magick

Banishing magick removes or returns any negativity, psychic attack or physical threats to you, your home or loved ones. It can be the next stage on from binding magick and may sometimes be necessary if a wrongdoer continues to pose a threat even after binding. So, for example, if binding the drug pusher didn’t work and teenagers were still being dragged into the drug pusher’s web, banishing might be the next stage.

As with binding, though you can’t banish a person, you can banish their bad influence from your life or that of a loved one, so you might put a dead branch on top a hill and for each dead leaf say:
“May his harmful influence be banished from the lives of those your (or indeed all vulnerable) people.”
Leave the branch as the wind strips the leaves away so the influence would hopefully decline.
In fact, this is a real case. Being a nasty character, the drug pusher was not affected by the binding, though the particular teenager involved, whose mother was helped, did inexplicably, she said, suddenly stop going to the clubs.
A week after the banishing spell the drug pusher was forced to leave the neighborhood as he had fallen foul of a local gang for selling them impure drugs. No one has taken his place at the club.
Because banishing magick in the protective context is stronger than binding magick and you are tackling what may be bad vibes head on, it should be used sparingly on both people and situations.

However, it can be used very positively. You can cast banishing spells to get rid of sorrow, sadness, pain and sickness, bad habits or the negative effects of people who make you unhappy.
Banishing magick can also help you to end in your own mind the ties of a destructive relationship, especially if you have been betrayed or badly treated but blame yourself or cannot let go. Sometimes we need the impetus of a spell if we are to walk away or get over the old sad scenes that run round and round in our heads and stop us from moving on.

For this kind of banishing, place a beeswax candle on a metal tray. Then hold a natural fabric cord or a long reed grass taut, an end in each hand, over the flame. As you burn the center of the cord till it breaks, say:
“I cut the cords that bind me (or another person you are doing the spell for) to (name the destructive person or bad habit, for example smoking or binge eating).”
You may need to repeat this spell many times using shorter cords or reeds. Bury the burned cords or reeds when they are not longer required.
You can also use banishing magick to protect yourself from harm by returning any ill wishes, spite, malice, gossip, curses or hexes to the sender without adding any bad feelings of your own. Under the threefold law, what ill wishes send out they get bad three times as strongly. Simply say:
“I return what is yours. Send it not again.”
As you speak, hold your hand palm outwards, finger splayed into the wind.

Binding Magick

Binding Magick 

Binding magick is sometimes considered a difficult area for white witches because of the issues of the infringement of freewill. It is an area where careful and honest heart searching is needed to be sure your magick is for the highest cause and with the purest intent.
Some binding magick is straightforward. If you were going on a long journey, you could bind a small child to you temporarily so that he or she would not get lost or wander off, as the child is not old enough to take responsibility for him or herself.
But what if you know a drug dealer is peddling in a place your teenager insists on visiting in spite of your warnings. Can you morally bind the drug pusher from harming your child without overriding their freewill or that of your teenager? Some witches would argue the drug pusher is potentially threatening a lot of teenagers and not just your own and so could not be left to spread his poison.
It is possible with care to carry out positive and protective spells to bind such adverse behavior, so that the drug peddler is not able to approach your child with the intent of doing harm.
You could bind your teenager, who after all is still young and vulnerable, from buying substances that will cause harm. You could add an attracting spell for your teenager to find some new friends who spend their time in less dangerous settings and also to strengthen your teenager’s natural moral standards.
Binding spells often involve the use of images or figures, such as dolls or ones made from beeswax or clay that you bind up with ribbons or cords (of course you do not harm the image). You would then gently wrap the figure in soft cloth and put it in a safe place until the specified time for the binding spell is through.
If there is not a set time, binding spells generally have to be recast monthly with new figures. The old doll should be returned to its element: to the earth if made of an earth substance: clay or wax should be rolled into a ball.
Since the drug pusher and teenager need to kept apart you could put the drug pusher figure with blessings into the freezer compartment and wrap your child’s image in a drawer. You could also, if you felt it morally right, create another figure to represent other unspecified teenagers in danger and wrap that separately but safely with your child’s figure well away from the drug pusher doll.

Attracting or Sympathetic Magick

Attracting or Sympathetic Magick

Attracting magick is sometimes called Sympathetic Magick because a focus is used to represent a person or need and then magickal actions are carried out upon that focus to endow it with the necessary power. The accumulated power will then be transferred in the release of energy at the climax of the spell into the actual person or need represented by the symbol.
In natural magick it is more effective to choose or make a symbol of a natural material or something which is living: flowers for love, a small wooden toy house for a home move, a feather for travel, seeds for the growth of a venture or prosperity and nuts for fertility.
Alternatively you can make wax symbols or figures by softening pieces of beeswax or a child’s modeling clay, for example a small baby in a cradle if you wish to conceive a child. You are not creating the much-feared wax images in which pins were stuck. In fact, most wax dolls with pins displayed in museums were actually used as an early westernized form of acupuncture or the ends of the pins were tipped with a healing oil (to symbolize healing entering the person). After the spell has run its course, you can roll the wax back into a ball and bury it with the words: “Return to your own element, with thanks.”

Equally every herb and crystal has magickal meanings and so can be a focus for a spell. A green aventurine crystal will when empowered in a spell bring you good luck and money, especially in matters of speculation.
Some spells are best repeated over several nights to build up the attracting powers. If you wanted a new love relationship to develop (with the proviso that it is right to be, the cosmic opt-out clause) you might move two beeswax candles, one pink and one green, closer to each of the three nights before the full moon for increasing energies. Finally, you would join the flames together on the fourth night of full moon power.
Contagious magick is very similar but involves using something personal that the person has used or walked over. For example, as Eastern European marriage spell involves a woman scooping up the earth in which a lover’s footsteps is imprinted and planting marigolds, a love and marriage flower, in the soil. As the flower grow, so it is said will the love, leading to marriage. Presumably in modern times there could be a role reversed.
