Jennifer from Woodbridge, VA

I am wanting to get my friend to be more than that. I know he has feelings for me but is hesitant to commit to me 100%. Is there anything I can do? I have had a reading that confirms his feelings for me, that is why I would like to move into a more exclusive relationship. Is that possible, and if so what can I do? Thank you!


Dear Jennifer,

Your reading confirmed his feelings for you, so patience is your best virtue right now. Remember this... love can wait... lust can't.

Sonya from Fayetteville, AR

Is there any significant reason a mirror would be hung well above viewing range (I'm talking like 20 feet up)? My sister is living with this guy and says strange things have begun to happen in the house, mostly revolving around the children having nightmares and saying they are seeing a scary man that does horrible things to children like chop them up. One of the children has even begun to "sleep run." She walks into the living room, turns and runs back to her room, then gets back in bed sound asleep. I have advised her to burn sage and cleanse the space, but she says she has a feeling this mirror may have something to do with it.


Dear Sonya,

Some believe mirrors can retain the energies that are projected around it. If the guy your sister is living with is a "negative Ned" and/or has anger issues, it could be that the mirror is holding onto and projecting that energy out.

Try smudging the room and the mirror with sage to see if that helps cleansing the area.

As for the children, place citrine and tourmaline in their rooms to help protect them against the negativity.

I have to ask... does this guy like children? Is he good with them? Is he kind, loving, and attentive? I would hate to think the energy coming from the mirror is a reflection of his own thought/emotions.

Potential Vampire from United Kingdom

Hi, I was wondering how to become a real vampire like in the Vampire Diaries. I have always wanted to become a vampire all my life and haven't found the answer. Please could you make a curse for me, because I have always wanted this?


Dear Potential Vampire,

I love that show because it's exciting and sexy and FICTIONAL. Vampires aren't real.

Anonymous from Sheringham, UK

Psssst, I need some sort of love charm for my friends. One of them, let's call her I, has loved J for so long now her heart aches constantly. Another friend, L, has a crush on J and will stop at nothing to win his heart. But I deserves J more than anyone; L can get any boy she wants. It's looking like J is in love with L. I need a spell of some sort that can make J love I? Please? It's my number one goal to get J and I together.


Dear Anonymous,

Seriously, I had to read this like three times just to figure out who wants to be with whom.

If you aren't part of the triangle, then personally I think you should stay out it. Let I, J, and L sort this out themselves.

If you are "I," then please read my response to Merlin from Camelot, VA for a great little love spell.

Good luck.

Avangelyne from Warner Robins, GA

This is a very urgent and pressing issue that leaves me with nowhere to turn. I practiced witchcraft religiously in my earlier years, but fell away because I listened to others' opinions. I have, for some years now, quit caring about anyone else's opinion. I started practicing again. I am being greatly harassed by my sister. She has a hatred for me that is beyond even enemies. She fabricated lies about me, has had me arrested on false charges, and is calling my kids' school to tell them I'm a bad mother. There is more, but it is all harassment, and I am going to do a mirror reversal spell because I am out of options. Her lies have broken up friendships I have had for years, and I have no one left to trust. This has all hurt me more than I can express, and it is all over her wanting my mother's inheritance. Is there anything I can do besides a reversal spell that will stop her lies, harassment, and personal attacks? Please help. I am at a loss and emotionally numb. Any ideas are welcome. Thanks.


Dear Avangelyne,

Dorothy Morrison has a wonderful book called Utterly Wicked: Curses, Hexes & Other Unsavory Notions just for situations like this.

Pay close attention to page 100!

Caroline from Victoria, Australia

Hello, I'll jump right into it. About a week ago one of my cats died. I'm not entirely sure how, but I think that it was perhaps old age. The strange thing was that the night she died, I dreamed of her. The dream was her play/fighting with my other cat and there was a puddle of blood. There wasn't any blood when we found her, but I thought it was strange all the same. I'm not sure about witchcraft and things, but my girlfriend is Wiccan and wasn't sure what to tell me. I guess my question is why did I dream that? Or something along those lines. Anyway, thank you for your time.


Dear Caroline,

Dreams are often a way for our subconscious mind to process our thoughts or emotions. When we lose someone we love unexpectedly, our brain tries to make sense over what we're feeling.

I'm sorry for your loss.

Lindsay from Columbia, MO

Is there a spell to help forget memories and bad thoughts? I have thought about just writing all these things down on a paper and then burning the paper. Would that help?


Dear Lindsay,

Burning papers, letters, and old journals is one of my favorite ways to get rid of unwanted thoughts and memories.

Be safe and use a fire proof dish!

Tim from Austin, TX

I'm afraid someone has cast a bad spell over/against me. How can I be sure of this? Are there concrete signs (other than waves of bad luck) that one can discern whether such spells have been cast? If so, is there any defense against them?


Dear Tim,

Believe it or not, negative energy, curses, hexes, etc. all have signs and symptoms. Below are a few of the most common signs. 

  • Unbelievable bad luck. Nothing works out the way it should.
  • Constant nightmares, usually involving you fighting or defending against unknown forces
  • Fights and arguments with loved ones
  • Constant personal accidents like falling and bumping into things
  • Sudden illness that seem to last longer than normal, i.e. a cold that lasts for 6 weeks
  • Feeling “unclean” or “dirty”
  • Feelings of being watched

The best weapon against negativity is counter magick, which consists of protective amulets, candle rituals, herbs and oils that help to remove curses and evil from your life, various psychic defense methods, bindings to render a sorcerer or sorceress powerless, spells to create a protective shield against attacks of black magick, spells to break hexes and curses, and spells that redirect the malevolent energy of a curse back to its sender.

If negativity energy seems to be surrounding you, or you feel that you have been cursed or hexed, the below are a few things that you can do to protect yourself.
  • Stay calm! Fear helps curses to take effect and empowers negativity energy.
  • Cleanse yourself and your sacred space.
  • Carry bloodstone (absorbs negative energy), red jasper (returns negative energy to its sender), and clear quartz (magnifies the energy of other gemstones) on your person or place one of each on every windowsill in your home.
  • Hang a sachet of herbs and gemstones outside your door.
  • Call upon your Gods to protect you and yours.

Kenyata from Lake City, FL

Can I become a witch without lighting a candle, and what do I do to become a witch?


Dear Kenyata,

Lighting candles is NOT a requirement for becoming a witch. Please read our section for New Witches for more information on getting started on your path.

Carole from Knoxville, TN

An image of what I thought was a green demon appeared on my iPad now. By reading up on black magic, I discovered "the green man" wasn't a demon after all. He was there for a second or two then disappeared. I couldn't find where or how this image/graphic was generated. I'm desperate to know what message the universe is sending me. Please advise me.


Dear Carole,

Seeing the Green Man can mean that you need to get back in touch with Mother Earth and nature in general. Being in touch with the Earth can help you feel stable and grounded.

Perhaps you should go for a hike and have a picnic beneath the trees and just allow yourself to feel the soothing energy Earth has to offer.
