Use peanuts, Brazilian nuts, chestnuts, etc (basically shelled nuts and beans) for a few simplistic ideas.
Paint them as skulls, write the target’s name, and crush them to give out head splitting headaches.
Paint them as hearts, write the target’s on them and: soak them in spicy sauces to cause heartburn, crush them to break someone’s heart, or freeze them to make a person shut everyone out.
Write the name of the target on the shell and paint a tongue over the name, crush the shell to make someone spill their secrets.
Paint the shell to look like a brain, write the target’s name, and destroy the nut to cause the target to go insane.
Paint the nut to look like a generic face, on the back write the name of the target, smear an oil or cream (lard, Crisco, butter works) on the shell in a thin layer (so you can see the face), sprinkle salt over lightly to cause dry skin, itchiness, and acne.
- 2 buds of lavender
- 1/2 cup petals of a yellow flower
- your choice of essential oil
- mortar and pestle
- black candle (white is fine too)
In the mortar and pestle, grind the lavender and petals in a deosil manner (clockwise) add a very small amount of essential oil (I went with lavender) and continue grinding. While you mash the petals, focus on what makes you happy. Once you feel you’ve ground the petals enough, use what is in the mortar to anoint the candle and quartz. As you do this, visualize things that you love (for me it was puppies).
Light the candle and let it burn for an hour without interruption. The candle is a symbol for whatever you are fearing being taken away and shrouded by happiness. Now take the quartz and put it somewhere you feel it will do you the most good (I.e. beneath a pillow, in a sachet to carry with you, by your doorstep). Once the candle has finished burning, snuff it out and dispose of the remaining candle in whichever way you please.
Purpose: To keep someone out of your life.
You Will Need: A poppet, rag doll, husk doll, or other spell image (even a photo will do). A box with a lock.
Step One - If you’re working with a doll of some kind, establish the identity of your target by saying, “I name you as _______. As I do to you, so I do to them.” You may also want to include a token object or personal item of your target’s. If you’re working with a photo, you don’t need to do this.
Step Two - Place the image in the box and lock it, reciting:
By locks and blocks and barricades,
I remove you from my life.
By keys and bolts and fasteners,
I undo your harm and strife.
By my power and command,
I shall not let you in.
By this spoken spell and doll,
I shall not see you again.
Put the box somewhere it will not be disturbed, but where you can open the box again should you want to let them back into your life.
° a cloth poppet
° a knife
° dried lemon rind
° a fire proof dish
With your knife make incisions into the poppet. Insert salt, lemon rind and rosemary for cleansing and for the inability to forget misdeeds.
Bind the poppet.
Insert into a fire proof dish, and burn it.
Purpose: Sometimes, we need to find a new goal, a new dream to reach towards. This spell may help.
Materials: Lavender oil; a dark blue candle.
Optional Materials: Flying Wish Paper or regular paper
This spell should be done…: During the waxing moon.
Dress the dark blue candle in lavender oil.
Cast a circle and call the quarters if you desire. Ground and centre if needed. Sit in a comfortable position. Light the candle and enter into a meditation about your career path or goal. Here are some questions you may wish to meditate on:
- Where do I want to be in ____ time?
- Who do I want to be?
- What will make me happy?
- Are my dreams/goals money-oriented, joy-oriented, family-oriented, etc?
- What are my skills and how can I use them?
When you’re ready, chant the following as many times as you deem necessary:
"I am finding the path right now and right here,
I have the faith in myself to believe
The future is bright, right action is clear,
I’m pursuing what’s mine, I’m living the dream!”
If you wish, you may take Flying Wish Paper, write down your wish or dream and let it fly! You can also write it down on a regular piece of paper and burn the paper with the flame, then scatter the ashes to the wind (make sure to exercise fire safety when doing this!).
Release the quarters and close the circle is desired.

What is a Paraphilia?
Paraphilia is a medical or behavioral science term for what is also referred to as: sexual deviation, sexual anomaly, sexual perversion or a disorder of sexual preference. It is the repeated, intense sexual arousal to unconventional (socially deviant) stimuli.
Richard Von Krafft-Ebing, a German psychiatrist credited with formally introducing the study of Sexology as a psychiatric phenomenon, identified paraphilias first in his 1886 Psychopathia Sexualis (Sexual Psychopathy). This highly influential psychiatric text laid the groundwork for the development of research and treatment in this area that has taken place over the last century.

The light element of air is found in a feather, and it can bring new love with a simple spell.
- A real feather (small is fine, just not synthetic)
- A dry sprig of rosemary
- Pink ribbon
Use the ribbon to tie the rosemary to the shaft of the feather, and then hang the charm on your bedroom door handle (on the inside of the room side). Touch it when you go in and out of the room, and a new love will soon be yours.
Sometimes for certain individuals the best course of action when dealing with or getting over something is to forget it even happened at all.
For this spell you will need:
- Paper and Pen
- White or Black Candle
- Blessed Water
- Fire-safe container or area to safely burn something
- Metal Tongs or something non-flammable to safely hold a burning object
- Lilac wood and/or Lilac flowers
Begin by anointing the candle with the blessed water. Light it, and set it aside for now.
Write what you want to forget on a piece of paper- be precise, you don’t want to forget anything other than your intended memory. Fold the paper envelope-style, hold your hands over the envelope and say “Let this stand as a physical representation of the memory contained herein”; repeat as many times as your feel necessary.
Hold your hands over the Lilac and Caraway and say “Let this stand as a metaphysical representation of my memory. May the burning of it cleanse it from my mind”; repeat as many times as necessary before placing the ingredients in the envelope pouch and sealing it.
With a pair of metal tongs or other non-flammable item, hold the sealed envelope over the candle flame and allow to catch fire well before moving it to a fire-safe container to burn completely.
From material to fire,
Cleanse this memory from my mind;
From fire to ash,
Release me from the hidden bind;
From ash to nothingness,
Release me from its exhaustive grind.
Repeat as many times as necessary and when content finish with “May all that’s left behind be a fragment of what it was once, and the lessons learned and entwined.”
Dispose of the remaining ash however you wish.
Astrolabe - reintroduced to Europe in the Dark Ages by the Moors. Edit
An astrolabe (Greek: ἀστρολάβος astrolabos, “star-taker”) is an elaborate inclinometer, historically used by astronomers, navigators, and astrologers. Its many uses include locating and predicting the positions of the Sun, Moon, planets, and stars, determining local time given local latitude and vice-versa, surveying, triangulation, and to cast horoscopes. It was used in classical antiquity, the Islamic Golden Age, the European Middle Ages and Renaissance for all these purposes. In the Islamic world, it was also used to calculate the Qibla and to find the times for Salat, prayers. There is often confusion between the astrolabe and the mariner’s astrolabe. While the astrolabe could be useful for determining latitude on land, it was an awkward instrument for use on the heaving deck of a ship or in wind. The mariner’s astrolabe was developed to solve these problems.
