Rayven from Ocean View, DE

What is the meaning of a cross in a fingerprint?


Dear Rayven,

Uh... that you're a religious person with a highly identifiable fingerprint who shouldn't do anything illegal?

Lulu from Stop, KY

My cat, Salem, has gone missing. Is there a spell that will really work to bring him home or at least protect him from harm? Please help me. I love my cat dearly.


Dear Lulu,

I'm so sorry, Lulu! I would call on the Egyptian Goddess, Bast, to help bring your Salem home.

Grab a picture of your fur baby (I'm sure you have thousands ♡), a magnet, and a candle (color doesn't matter).

On the back of the picture write a plea to Bast to keep Salem safe and healthy until he comes home. Place the picture on a table facing up, then place the magnet on top of the picture.

Now hold the candle in the palms of your hand and see/sense/feel/know Salem walking back through your door... BELIEVE he will come home healthy and quickly. Place the candle by the picture and magnet and light it.

Please let us know when Salem comes home!!!

Hazel from Northern Virginia

So I've recently discovered that I'm an empath. Before, I I just figured they were emotional issues and lived a stressful life. In the last few months I've become very much at peace with myself on a spiritual level. I want to keep my faith alive. Since finding my gift, I've been able to sleep better and meditate anywhere at anytime with no problem. I'm still having problems controlling all of the negative energy and pain that I'm picking up.

What are some things or exercises I can do to help train my mind and body to not react to these feelings? They can be very overwhelming and scary at times.

I ask because my daughter picks up on them as well, and I'd like to be able to help her so she doesn't have to suffer growing up the way I did.


Dear Hazel,

One of the best ways to control empathic abilities is to work with them as often as possible. Think of negative energy as screaming and positive energy as whispering. Negative energy is easier to pick up because it's thicker, denser, louder, which also means it's the easiest to block out. Envision a suit of armor made out of adamantium, allowing energy out, air in, but not allowing anyone else's energy in towards you. By getting into the practice of doing this every day with your daughter before ever leaving the house and doing touch ups during the day, you'll find that things improve dramatically. You'll want your daughter to be extremely proficient at this before she enters into high school which is a cesspool of negative emotions.

Tracy from Whitefish, MT

There is a person in my group who believes I can "lend" him my power to help him. Have you ever heard of such a request? I admit that I am new although I have always been a witch. I would like advice on a protection spell for him. Thank you so much!


Dear Tracy,

Technically, yes, if by "power" you mean your energy. Your energy can be shared with a person during ritual or spell work. But it's not recommended to do it too often or with too many people.

Your friend should want to protect himself and shouldn't get into the habit of borrowing people's powers to perform magickal workings. If you want to give him a gift like a talisman or gemstones (bloodstone, tourmaline, onyx, Apache tear), that would be a lovely gift.

What is one spoken spell to change into a beautiful, attractive werewolf?


Dear Selena,

No. Fiction. Too many TV shows. Come back to reality.
