There’s often confusion over the difference between banishing spells and binding spells, however it’s crucial that you understand this difference.
- Binding spells attach something or, more frequently, someone to you with great intensity, often permanently
- Banishing spells remove something or, more frequently, someone from your presence, often permanently.
It’s an important distinction. Although magick spells are typically used to manifest something or someone, quite often the reverse is needed. Something or someone needs to be sent packing quickly.
Banishing spells are traditionally timed to coincide with the waning moon, in the hopes that just as the moon diminishes, so will the unwanted presence.
Also falling under the category of banishing spells are Avoidance Spells–those spells required when you wish to avoid contact, for instance with creditors or debt collectors. Banishing spells are used to prevent any unwelcome returns, too. However, you may wish to consider Protection Spells to reinforce or in some circumstances replace, banishing spells.
