Court Case Mojo

The one time in your life, when you will be relieved of any control over what happens to you, what happens to a loved one, what happens to a victim, or what happens to a perpetrator, will be in a court room.  The one time when fate and destiny will definitely lay in the hands of a single individual (a judge), or a group of individuals (a jury), will be in the court room.  In a world of perfection, justice would prevail in these episodes 100% of the time; but we don’t live in a perfect world, and once in a while, this system– created by men, flawed by humanity, fails.  And when it fails, it usually fails in a big way, an irreversible way, an in-your-face-I’m-gonna-wreck-your-life way.  But we don’t have to close our eyes and wait for the consequences of this system to strike us in a helter-skelter totally unpredictable whimsical fashion.  We can take control of destiny, of fate, of our own circumstances, or those of a loved one, through very old, very powerful, very successful mojo…Court Case Mojo.

Herbs:  The herbs most likely used for court case magick include: calendula, cascara sagrada, deer’s tongue, dill, little John the conquer root, black mustard seed, poppy, shame brier, sumac, sugar, tobacco, slippery elm, cayenne pepper, cloves, belladonna.  For really vile cases, the most poisonous, disgusting, prickly, thorny types of herbs and substances you can think of is what you should be using.  (I’m sure there’s more than I’ve listed here, but this is a good start.)

Personal concerns:  hair, finger-nail clippings, saliva, bodily fluids/secretions, blood.  Items such as a piece of jewelry, a button from clothing, under-garments, a used Kleenex or handkerchief, a spoon, a shoe, dirt from a footprint; anything the target has touched, put in his/her mouth, an image (photograph), a signature, a hoodoo poppet, a doll (as in the Barbie doll types, with the correct hair color, dressed and named as the target) etc.

The methods:

The first method is one of my favorites and one of the most effective.  This type of spell-casting is not for the squeamish, or anyone who’s heart is not into what they’re doing 100%.  You can have no doubt that you are in the right and the target (damn them) are in the wrong.  You know when it’s right.  You can feel it, you can smell it.  The air around you will be charged with energy, with entities (spirits), it will almost unexplainably propel you along.  I don’t know how else to explain it, but when you’re called upon to cast this kind of mojo, you will know…

Hexing Poppets

These are the poppets that make the White Witches squirm; the poppets that people find the most intriguing and sometimes frightening; the poppets that wreak of mystery, foreboding, power, retribution, and revenge. In some circles, you might find controversy and arguments where use of the black hexing poppet is concerned, but you won’t find it here.

This poppet is considered one of the ‘big guns’. When someone in your life is making circumstances impossible, when someone is wreaking havoc in people’s lives, when someone is being just plain mean and nasty above and beyond what’s acceptable– it’s time for a magickal kick in the pants.

Day: Saturday

Planet: Saturn

Element: Earth/the physical realm, manifestation (bind the target’s ability to physically harm); Air/communication, the mental realm (bind the target’s ability to speak out of turn or inflict mental pain); Fire/passion and purging (destroy the target’s will power and protective armor); Water/emotions, visions, intuition (pick up empathically the target’s next move, stay one step ahead of them, and invade their dreams)

Color: black

Herbs: Return to sender/ginger, nettle, thistle; deflection/anise, blackthorn, ginger, nettle, paprika; retribution/cayenne pepper, blackthorn, belladonna, hemlock; curse/belladonna, cloves, dragon’s blood, hemlock, pepper, wormwood

Stones: jet, obsidian, onyx (black), sardonyx, tourmaline (black)

Other Items: this will be interesting…thorns; nails– especially coffin nails, if you’ve got them; razor blades, shards of glass; poison; personal effects– you betcha’; if you’re a gritty kind of witch– a chicken heart pierced with straight pins, snake sheds, a spider’s carcass– or flies; bodily secretions– of the disgusting variety; spit inside the poppet– with vigor and emotion; a slip of paper upon which you’ve vented your anger and thrown a curse upon the target; images or objects connected in some way with the behavior of this individual or the problems that have been created because of them.

(This spell is an excerpt from my online book, “Natural Magick the Gray Witch Way”.)

Beef Tongue Court Case Spell

This quaint little spell is steeped in hoodoo tradition, and if you are squeamish, it could be a bit of a challenge.  I have actually had the pleasure of using this delightful twisted magical gun when I was going through the legal proceedings of a nasty divorce and had reached the point where I’d had enough.  Of course, right in the midst of the best part of the spell, our neighbor lady knocked on the backdoor.  My girls practically bowled her over to keep her out of the house so I could finish the job.  This spell will work for you, I can tell you this from personal experience, so stick with it and see it through– make the gray witch proud.

Items needed:

1.  A raw beef tongue (You should be able to find this in the meat department of your local grocery store.)
2.  Several slips of paper and a pen
3.  Pins and needle and thread
4.  A strip of red flannel cloth large enough to wrap up the tongue
5.  Cayenne pepper
6.  Four Thieves Vinegar

Make sure you have a decent place to work where you’ll have plenty of room to spread things out and get comfortable, this may take a while.

1.  Begin by writing the names of the judge, the attorneys, adversaries, witnesses, anyone connected to your case who may have a negative impact or influence upon it or you on these small slips of paper– one name per slip!
2. Using a sharp knife, cut small slits into the beef tongue– a slit for each slip of paper.
3.  Insert one name paper into each slit.
4.  Sprinkle the tongue with cayenne pepper and Four Thieves Vinegar.
5.  Close the slits in the tongue with straight pins, or do what I did– sew the slits shut with needle and thread.
6.  Wrap the tongue in red flannel and place it in your freezer while the court case is in progress.  When you’ve reached the end of this ordeal and all is said and done, remove the tongue from your freezer and bury it in the earth.

(This spell is an excerpt from my book, “The Gray Witch’s Grimoire”.)

For anyone reading this who is especially sensitive to the darker energies and may have gotten a case of the heebie-jeebies as they’ve read their way through this blog post, don’t worry, you’ll be fine, believe me.  You might feel better if you’d 1) light a white candle, 2) choose a nice incense– like sandalwood or nagchampa, and light it up, and 3) sit a few small bowls of salt out about your house, or sprinkle (asperge) your space with salted water.  It’s okay– strong energy usually leaves an impression…that’s the point.

May Updates: Heading into Summer

I’m happy to be back to business as usual, more or less, and I’ve resumed tarot readings, including personal private local readings. If you live in or near the Fremont, Nebraska, area, you can receive a personal reading with me by going to this page (click Here) and purchasing a private reading through the Paypal widget. After you’ve done that, call me to set up a date that will be convenient for both of us. You’ll find my number at this link.

*Note:  readings must be paid for in advance, before I’ll set up an appointment. I’ve had too many people who have either forgotten a scheduled reading, or who have been ‘no-shows’. This wastes both my time and my gas.

I finally got the new “Steampunk Bleu” jewelry collection up at my website, click  Here.  This collection includes original designs from “Creations by Isabella”.  She’s worked for months designing necklaces, earrings, and bracelets, all with the popular ‘steampunk’ theme; and this jewelry was literally selling as I’m putting it up– two pieces have already sold, so I suggest you take a look soon if you’re interested.

 

I’ve had so many requests for so long for magnetic healing bracelets, and I finally found a decent vendor for these items.  There are two different styles of hematite magnetic enchanted bracelets.  There are a variety of colors (accent beads) and a variety of enchantments; however, there are a limited number of bracelets. When you purchase one of these bracelets, be sure to let me know which color of accent bead you want, and you also get to choose what kind of enchantment you desire from the enchantments offered. ( If you have a special magickal need, let me know and I’ll see what I can do for you to personalize the enchantment.) …Click  Here.

 

I’m pleased to say that my book, “The Gray Witch’s Grimoire”, is doing well and seems to be hitting a soft spot with a lot of gray witches and solitary witches out there.  Thank you to everyone who’s sent me personal messages.  I may not have the time to answer every email coming in, but I read them all!  If you like this book, please be sure to click the ‘Like’ button at Amazon.  If you’ve read this book and you have something to say about it, you can submit a review at the Amazon page included in the link above.  I appreciate all of the input I’ve received, it’s the most rewarding part of writing, to know that you’ve made a ‘magickal’ connection with so many people on so many levels.

The following is an excerpt from the introduction to “Spells” in “A Gray Witch’s Grimoire”:

“…The spells listed here are all taken directly from my own Book of Shadows. I’ve carefully read through and decided upon a number of spells for a variety of intentions. I’ve chosen spells which have the spirit of the gray witch about them and that will fit with the energy of this book. Some of these spells are inspired by age-old traditions and others were birthed from my own imagination, desires, and intentions.

For those of you who don’t have the heart of the gray witch, some of these spells might make you cringe; but you’ll read transfixed, nevertheless, for the pull of the wild witch is strong within us all. Some of you have just tamed her, and others have allowed her to fly free.”

When did you first know you were a witch?

I knew that there was something ‘different’ about me before I was old enough to know that there was a name for it. One of the earliest magickal experiences that I remember took place when I was about four years old, hidden in the cool shade of a grove of trees on a terraced hillside at my grandmother’s farm.

The day was very hot, but beneath the canopy created by the large grove of trees that covered the hillside, it was very cool; and I squatted on one of the wide terraced ‘steps’, beneath a tree that had small round leaves lining it’s branches. I took hold of one of the small new twigs at the base of the tree; and I slid my hand along it’s length, filling my palm with the cool green leaves.

As my head was bent and I was examining these leaves, I heard a noise. I looked to my right, through the fence lining this edge of the grove, into the world of brilliant hot sunshine, to see a large white cow grazing in the field beside me, only a few feet away.

The wind came then, through the tops of the trees. I froze as I listened to it, the roar starting at the opposite end of the grove and working it’s way through the tree tops towards me, till it was directly overhead. I realized that this wind sounded like voices, voices that seemed to come directly from the trees.

It was then that a realization dawned on me, leaving an indelible print so strong that this memory is still starkly vivid to me fifty years later. It was a realization that I was too young to form into words…but I knew.
