Dominik from Weert, Netherlands

Hello, I know I'm still 17, but I want to ask if there is something like a spell or magic for luck. Actually I'm very realistic and mostly I don't believe in this kind of stuff, but I thought that it can't do any harm to try this. I had and I still have (for some parts) a difficult life. So finally I wondered if there is something that can bring at least a small piece of luck into my life. It can be a luck stone, spell or what so ever, but please help me.

-------------

Dear Dominik,

For luck, I like to carry around a piece of green aventurine and a piece of lodestone in my pocket. Be sure to cleanse the stones when you first get them, hold them in the palms of your hands, and see/think/sense/feel all kinds of good luck flowing into those gemstones. Put them into your pockets and carry them around with you. Recleanse and recharge them once a week.

Bisrat from Louisiana

Hello, I've got a question to ask you. I am a Christian, Orthodox actually, and I have been researching quite a bit in witchcraft. First it was just for the sake of knowledge, but after exploring, I've become more attracted to it. My problem is that I am a somewhat devoted Christian, and well, to a Christian, witchcraft=devil. Is there any way that one person could be a witch and not worship anything and just be a Christian? FYI, I'm a teenager and emotional and spiritual advice from you will be greatly appreciated. Thank for your time.

-------------

Dear Bisrat,

No, you can't be a Christian Wiccan. One is a polytheistic religion (worshipping more than one deity) and the other is a monotheistic religion (worshipping only one deity). Having said that, while you can't be a Wiccan and Christian at the same time, the practice of magick can be done in Christianity. Magick is nothing more than the focusing of one's energy to create change in one's life.


P.S. As a practicing witch, I find it offenseive that you think the devil is in my practice. Let me assure you, the devil has no part in MY religious beliefs; he is in YOURS.

Alexis from Hammond, LA

Is there a spell that can cure me from physical illness? I was born with eczema all over my skin, legs, neck, thighs, arms, and stomach, and it's preventing me from living a normal teenage life. I cry and want to do bad things and I can't get it out of my head that I'm cursed because everything is bad in my life. Is there anything I could do to fix me? Or at least how I look...

-------------

Dear Alexis,

First of all, ask your mom to take you to a new doctor. There have been some prescription medications that have come out in the last couple of years which can help with skin issues such as eczema.


Magickally speaking, Reiki treatment could help. So could working with the goddesses Isis and Hygea, and the gods Dionysys and Ganesh. Although I doubt you'll find a cure in magick, you might find some lessening of the eczema and/or confidence building, especially when added to a medical treatment plan.

Shannon from USA

I was working with candle magic last night for the first time in three years. Today I decided to randomly take my dog out to the creek and I found all these quarters in the water. It was like a wishing well in the creek. Maybe it has nothing to do with craft, maybe it was just a coincidence, but I just thought it was weird, and so unexpected. Random things like this haven't happened for awhile.

-------------

Dear Shannon,

If your candle spell was about prosperity, then it was an answer from the universe.

Michael from Jackson, CA

My wife is under a spell. I'm trying to figure out what type of spell it is. The neighbor and my wife are together. He is the one I believe put the spell on my wife.

-------------

Dear Michael,

It's called cheating. No spell required. Sorry, dude, move on.

Kain from Michigan

My mother cast something on me as a baby while still a fetus. I was dying by suffocation from my umbilical cord being wrapped around my neck. The doctors were amazed to find that two weeks later it was unwrapped and I was no longer presumed to be a still-born child. What is the name of the spell (if that's what it is) that she would have used so I can find out why it effects me today?

-------------

Dear Kain,

It's called love. If what you say is true, your mother loved you enough to send all of her energy, thoughts, and emotions to unwrap the umbilical cord and save your life. Be grateful.

Al from Spokane, WA

I just read a response you gave about a candle and it prickled my memory about something I have read somewhere. Essentially, the writer was arguing that one should extinguish a candle with a snuffer rather than blowing it out. Do you agree? If so, why?

-------------

Dear Al,

No, I don't agree. I am putting my energy into the candle, lighting the candle, and then expecting the energy to go through my walls, brick, mortar, concrete, etc into the universe to bring about my change. After all of that, does my blowing out the candle really make all that magick stop, or was someone out there trying to add a little extra witchy-poo to candle burning?

Phil from South Carolina

I had a dream of a symbol some time ago. It's the four moon phases: full moon on top, new moon below that, first and last quarters on the side, with the points of the crescent moons facing out. I know that it must be my power symbol, but are there any historical references? Does it have a name?

-------------

Dear Phil,

The symbol is called the triple goddess.

Niketa from Horsham, Australia

Hi. I am seeking answers on a few things and am thankful for any help you may give me. First, are witches able to harness both white and black magic? Second, can powers be transferred to dead witches or people for any reason? Third, I thought with most spells, there would be rituals, moon phases, and stuff like that to cast them? Fourth, are people able to be brought back from the dead? I'm sorry for all the questions. I need help and I have been spun all this stuff by a friend, well, someone who is meant to be a friend. I believe in witchcraft and Wicca, but I'm sure what I have spun is not right.

-------------

Dear Niketa,

1 - There is no such thing as white and black magick. Magick follows the intent of the practitioner.


2 - No, powers cannot be transferred to anyone, living or deceased.

3 - Not all spells require moon phases and other accoutrements.

4 - No, nobody can be brought back from the dead. And why the eff would you want to bring someone back? They're dead. They're in the Summerland, a better place than here.

Scott from Florida

I've been pagan for some time now, and I don't usually work with much magic (mostly just worship the Gods and Goddesses). But I have worked with runes, spirit boards, and things of that nature. For a while now, I've been feeling like I might be cursed by possibly multiple people, some intentional and some possibly not (like the evil eye and any other forms of magic like it). I was hoping you could name off some herbs, gemstones, or just supplies in general for a total reversal spell and a curse removal spell. I plan on making this spell on my own. I'm just looking for some advice on anything you could think of to make a curse reversal spell more effective and where to start with a curse removal spell. Thank you for any response you may provide and blessed be.

-------------

Dear Scott,
13 Magickal Moons makes a curse removal kit and candle, which have had high success rates!

Tamy from Abu Dhabi

I have a question that I've been thinking about a lot. Maybe you can answer it for me. I've been reading a lot of books about being a witch, and I should have Poitier power for my knowledge, but I don't. Why? None of the spells I've been casting have worked!

Another question, if I have trouble in school and I know my mom would kill me if she knew, can I like do a trick to make them forget that I did something wrong, like using a witch power to save my day without doing spells and candles and herbs?! Answer my question please!

-------------

Dear Tamy,

Question 1: Most spells fail because you didn't put enough intention/energy into the spell or you had negative thoughts about the spell after you performed it.


Question 2: Honey, there are realistic spells and unrealistic spells. You are asking for an unrealistic spell. Not gonna happen.

Becca from Richmond, VA

I have been having issues with what I believe to be depression. It seems to only effect me in the winter. Why is this, and is there anything I can do about this that does not involve burning candles or incense?

-------------

Dear Becca,

One of the best ways to combat season affective disorder (SAD) is use a wide-spectrum sunlamp in the winter. Try to watch more comedies and stay away from comfort foods!

Carl from Canada

Hello, I asked a question last year and I wasn't really satisfied because you referred me to books. My question was what does it mean when you look in the mirror and your eyes turn black with constellations (stars)? I would really like an answer. And since it happened, I got all kinds of energy moving in my brain. I am scared to talk about that to anyone because of their reactions.

-------------

Dear Carl,

It could possibly mean that you have overdosed on whatever drug you are currently taking or that you are in serious need of some psychiatric treatment.


Black eyes could mean your pupils have widened dramatically, which can be caused by some medical condition or medication, not anything of metaphysical origin. But as for the stars, I have never heard of such a thing before (outside of fiction novels).

In case you don't understand what I'm saying, it's that I don't believe your eyes turn black with constellations (stars) within them. Physically just not possible.
