Wild child Rachel is having a week so terrible, not even a pitcher of margaritas will help. When her evil boss shows up on her doorstep with a sob story, her request to stay a few nights turns into a whole lot more. She can’t even escape into some of her favorite haunts in the Quarter since she seems to have garnered the unwanted attention of some rabid readers. When her ghost-hunting assignment goes unexpectedly awry, Rachel unknowing releases a vengeful spirit.

Enduring a wicked houseguest and hiding from an over-enthusiastic fan all while trying to put a spirit back in her grave where she belongs is more challenging than sobriety during Mardi Gras. Can she and her family work some magick to put things right in the Crescent City or has Rachel bit off more veggie muffuletta than she can chew?

Jessica from Dallas, TX

I've been with my boyfriend for three years and we have two children together. He recently left me due to his family. I am desperate to get him back. He had a boil on his leg and was bleeding. He used a rag on it and left it behind. I am tempted to attempt love spell, but am worried it would have the reverse effect. Do you think it's a bad idea?


Dear Jessica,

I do think it's a bad idea. I always think it's a bad idea to do a love spell on a specific person.  When a relationship ends, it ends for a reason. Even if you don't like the reason, there is still a reason. And if someone wants to leave, then forcing them to come back doesn't take away the reason they want to leave.

Focus on you and your children. If your ex decides he wants to work it out, then you'll be a stronger better partner to him.

Much love...

Anonymous from Ohio

Hey! I have a weird question, but is there a way to become a werewolf? If so, can I have the ritual/spell, please? (Yes, this is a serious question. I have been studying on the subject for six years now.)


Dear Anonymous,

If you've been studying how to become a werewolf, then you must know by now that it is not physically possible to become an actual werewolf (or any other creature).

Bess from Tennessee

I am just wondering what would be a good starting point in exploring kitchen witchcraft. Thank you.


Dear Bess,

I love the book Kitchen Witchery: A Compendium of Oils, Unguents, Incense, Tinctures, and Comestibles by Marilyn F. Daniel which has some fantastic easy-to-use recipes!

Stark from La Habra, CA

I started a candle spell together with a personal sigil I created (not a name sigil). I feel that I may have used the wrong color candle in accordance with my sigil, or vice versa. The candle is burning on one side with a flickering flame and I feel compelled to stop the spell and start over. In your opinion, what is the best way to stop a spell in progress?


Dear Stark,

Once you've put your intent into the spell, the color of the candle doesn't matter. As a matter of fact, the color of the candle doesn't matter at all. Your intent is what fuels the spell.

But to answer your question, if you want to stop a spell in progress, gather all the components together (blow out any candles first), place your hands over the items, and focus your intent on canceling the spell. Throw away any trash and put the salvageable pieces away.

Is there a spell that clones a younger version of someone? Or a spell to turn a TV show into the real world? Please help.


Dear Mary,

Hells to the no, girl!

Sue from Athens, TX

Me and my mother went to shop one afternoon, and when we got back, there were two piles of dirt on her living room floor. Someone came into the house while she was gone and put it there. Is this some kind of spell or curse someone has put on her or her husband?


Dear Sue,

It really would depend on where the dirt came from and if there was anything else in the dirt (like herbs or gemstones).

I have to be honest, though. I don't feel like it was magickal at all. If you really want to curse someone, you don't need to break into their home to make it effective. I would have called the police and reported the break in.

Kayla from Fairfax Station, VA

Hi! I'm starting a Cosplay club at my school. I was wondering, what are good gems and herbs to make up a charm bag for a cosplayer? Things like confidence in yourself and your work, creativity, passion for what you do, not giving up, and communication are very important for something like this, as well as attracting lifelong friends! :)


Dear Kayla,

This is a great idea!  If I were making the charm bag, I would use a gold bag (for friendship) and put the following items in it:

Citrine for confidence
Orange peel for creativity
Rose for passion
Sunstone for determination
White willow bark for communication
Fluorite for mental clarity

All of these items are fairly cheap and really common!

Travis from Tazewell, TN

I have some major demons I've never told anyone about before. The other night I told my wife, and since then I can feel something coming for me. Hell, sometimes I can see them all shadowy with red eyes. I'm not crazy, but I can feel them grabbing me and I can feel that they want to take me and punish me. It sounds insane but I know they are coming for me. I bought a cheap talisman. I was just hoping there was some kind of blessing or something because I'm scared - not schizophrenic crazy scared - honest to goodness scared of them. I see and feel them all around me. Please send me some advice.


Dear Travis,

It doesn't matter how cheap or expensive a talisman is, it's the intent (energy) that empowers the item.

Hold the talisman in your palms of your hands, close your eyes, and imagine/see/sense/feel/know the talisman creating a protective barrier around you made of the strongest metal you can think of. I like to use adamantium (from X-Men) as my protective barrier. Continue to hold and focus on the talisman until you feel your intent is in it. Carry or wear it at all times.

I don't know what religion you practice, but find a prayer, chant, or incantation you connect with most.

Good luck, honey.

What is the purpose of my life on earth as a spiritual leader?


Dear George,

To help people feel powerful, empowered, and capable of doing whatever they put their mind to. Spiritual leaders are supposed to be servants of their community.

Sarah from Sterling, VA

Is there an appointment I can make with someone to remove the evil eye? It was placed on my grandmother after the death of her first son, and has been passed down to myself.


Dear Sarah,

NO! Do not make an "appointment" with anyone to remove a curse you feel has been placed on you. This is actually something you can do on your own.  13 Magickal Moons has a Curse Removal kit that has had extremely positive results!

Sphinx from Cape Town, South Africa

Hello Team. I have been a practitioner of The Craft for some time now, and what a fun journey it's been.

Anywho, my question is, when I started this path there were some lovely little tricks provided by "powers that be" which I learned with time and dedication to slightly hone. Not too long ago, I started finding that my senses started becoming heightened, not all at once, thank the Gods, but one by one.

I just wanted to know if anyone had any insight on this or is it just one of those subjective experiences, and I just need to enjoy the ride?


Dear Sphinx,

It's not uncommon for a practitioner to become more aware of their growing senses the more connected they are to their spirituality and the Divine.

So in answer to your question... just enjoy the ride!
