Let’s Talk Witch – Broke Any Mirrors Recently, What to do, What to do????
Mirrors are the perfect example of household furnishings that have been fraught with superstition. Probably the most common belief concerning mirrors is that their breakage causes seven years of bad luck. Whatever the origins of this belief, here are some methods to counteract the curse.
*Throw salt over your shoulder.
*Directly after breaking the mirror, turn around three times counterclockwise.
*Burn the mirror or at least blacken its shards in the flames of a fire. Save the fragments for a year and then bury them, and the curse will be counteracted (so you’ve only had to live through one year of bad luck).
*On the first night after breaking the mirror, light seven white candles and blow them out at midnight with one breath.
*Touch a tombstone with a piece of mirror, and the hex will be lifted.
Any of these rites can be used but bear in mind that the “curse” of the broken mirror is usually a self-created one.
