In addition to the items here, you will need something personal from both parties, such as their hair, footprint-dirt, menstrual blood, semen, photos, business card, or the like. The more intimate the better. In addition, you should symbolically write their full names on two pieces of paper 9 times. Use black ink for the one you want to have get away and red ink for the one you want to stay near you. Use black ink for both, if you want both to get away. Whatever item you use, those things, plus the name-papers, will be referred to as "the couple's personal items." Work during the waning of the moon). Doing the Job: Make the Crossing Incense Powders into cones (use a twist of paper, pack the incense in with your finger, and turn it out of the cone). On the Black Couple Candle carve the couple's full names with the words BREAK UP between their names. Dress the candle with Crossing Oil and sprinkle it with Crossing Powder. For each of the next seven days burn a portion of the incense and one section of the candle. Pinch the candle out between times, never blow it out. During these 7 days, you will work the spell itself. The bottle contains 9 Pins, 9 Needles, 9 Rusty Nails, the Hair of a Black Dog, and the Hair of a Black Cat. These are to cause pain, anger, emotional incompatibility, distance, and quarelling between the couple so that they will "fight like cats and dogs" and seek to part from each other. You have 3 types of powders. Each is alleged to produce a certain result. The more you use, the more mischief is believed to result. Hotfoot Powder is to drive someone away. Crossing Powder is to bring about bad luck, trouble, and illness. Goofer Dust is to mess people up seriously, even unto death. Choose 1, 2, or all 3 powders; blend them together if you want. Mix the couple's personal items with the powder(s) you have chosen, then put the mix in the bottle with the pins, needles, nails, dog hair, and cat hair; stop up the bottle and bury it under their doorstep. As you do this, pray aloud for their intranquility and break-up in your own words; ask in the name of your God or Saint. If you can't put it under their doorstep, hide it in a hollow tree where they can't find it, or carry it to the nearest graveyard and bury it (praying for the death of their relationship), or carry it to a crossroads and throw it into center of the road (praying for them to travel apart from each other), or throw it into running water (praying to have them both carried out of your life). CLEANING UP: Wrap up any left-over candle wax, incense ashes, and unused materials in a piece of black cloth. Secure it with black thread and tie it. Throw it out at a crossroads or bury it in a graveyard. PURIFICATION AND PROTECTION: Because breaking folks up is an Enemy Trick, you must cleanse yourself and protect from retribution. To take off your sin, prepare a bath by steeping the Hyssop Herb in a pot of boiling rain water or spring water. Light the two white candles, stand between them, and pour the Hyssop bath over your head while reciting the 51st Psalm ("Cleanse me with Hyssop; wash me and I shall be whiter than snow"). For protection, drive the 9 Devil's Shoe Strings into the dirt across the path to your door-step to tangle up anyone who may try to retaliate and cross you. Put the Devil Pods outside or behind your front and back doors to repel any evil work that may be directed toward you. © 1998 catherine yronwode (firstname.lastname@example.org) ------------------------------------------ WHY YOU MAY NEED AN ANTI-LOVE SPELL (WITH A SIMPLE ANTI-LOVE SPELL INCLUDED) Dan Goodman (email@example.com) wrote: > > (firstname.lastname@example.org) wrote [snipped for bandwidth]: > > > I need help desperately.

Well said, Dan! This sort of story is oh-so-common. It really breaks my heart to hear it again and again. A man or woman i call the "giver" loves a woman or man i call the "taker." The giver believes that the taker is his or her soul-mate or best lover of all time. The taker plays a yes-no-yes-no game, agreeing verbally, but physically alternating between drawing closer and pulling away. The giver declares his or her love and a desire for union. The taker temporizes by promising all manner of things -- to have sex, to break off with another part-time lover, to leave a spouse, to marry, to get off drugs, to find a job, etc. -- without ever fully delivering on the promises. The giver is hurt. The taker produces substitute gifts in place of what was promised -- flowers instead of a date, a date instead of a weekend together, a weekend together instead of marriage. If the giver is deeply in love, the taker can maintain the relationship on little more than a few letters, words, or dates, without ever having to do anything he or she has promised. Sometimes, after months of disappointed expectations, the giver draws away. Then the taker makes a big effort to come through with something that was promised -- he or she breaks off with the other lover, spends a full weekend, gets on medication for depression, finds a job, or some such. However, things soon return to the way they were before. In short order, the taker pulls away again -- staging a fight or blow-up, quitting the job believed necessary to the couple's plans for marriage, being discovered with another lover or using drugs, using cruel language, threatening to commit suicide -- and the giver is again left baffled and hurt. The couple may then split up temporarily, but the giver persists in loving the taker, so the taker starts the entire cycle again, making new promises and breaking them. This can go on for years. This sort of cycle resembles, in its dynamics but not in its details, the cycle that occurs in an abusive, battering, or violent relationship; the energy level is much different, of course, but the raising of expectations for change and the failure to keep promises are identical. The couple may be middle-aged, too, not kids, so the idea may arise that the come-and-go lover is not really a taker but instead is a potential fellow-giver who is merely suffering from "past hurts" or "fears" such as an abusive childhood or a former "bad" marriage, or is having a "mid-life crisis," or going through a "mental breakdown" which must be fixed somehow before he or she will settle into a loving union. If this avenue of thought is pursued, the giver becomes what i call a "self-basting turkey," who spends a lot of time trying to analyze the taker's "past hurts" and trying to help to fix them -- reading books on difficult relationships at the very least, but even going so far as to deal with social workers, therapists, probation officers, doctors, or an ex-spouse on behalf of the taker. These efforts by the giver may conceal the fact that the taker is ambivalent about relationships in general or this relationship in particular, or that the taker may be mentally ill, or may be drug addicted, or may be engaged in a deliberately deceitful strategy of using the giver as a stop-gap sex-partner or financial helper until someone he or she deems a better match comes along. Eventually the giver discovers something unbearable -- that the taker has another lover, has gone back to his or her spouse, is really homo/hetero sexual, is not in treatment, is still using drugs, has been arrested again, or some such -- and there is another blow-up. Then the cycle begins again. If the taker actually breaks things off permanently (usually by finding another lover), the giver, who has been self-trained into patience for so long and has given so much, is devastated. His or her pain usually centers around the unfulfilled promises made by the taker and on the fact that he or she believes this was a "fated" or "spiritual" relationship. The giver may find it almost impossible to believe that after years of learning to accommodate the taker's "fears," he or she has been dumped utterly and finally. The taker, especially a very cruel one, may then offer "friendship" as a substitute gift for the love or marriage that was promised and not delivered, leading the giver into yet another futile cycle of belief that the couple can somehow "reconcile," especially through the use of love-spells. What the giver needs to do is draw a limit. I found mine, when i was in just such a situation, from the works of Lewis Carroll, the author of "Alice in Wonderland." In his book "The Hunting of the Snark," Carroll introduces the phrase "What i tell you three times is true." This means that if someone says something THREE TIMES, if events repeat THREE TIMES, you are justified in taking them as "true." Don't demand that the taker make any declaration of love three times in a row; promises are his or her stock in trade and count for little. Don't warn the taker that he or she has "three chances" to get things right. Just listen to what's going down. Pay attention to the truth in threes. For instance, if the taker tells you THREE TIMES that he or she will be somewhere on a certain date but fails to arrive, then you have been dumped. I'm not talking about a situation where he or she is late or calls and cancels ... i'm talking about a date for which he or she does not show up at all. If that happens three times, there's no point in your getting mad -- what you were told three times is true. You are not wanted. The end. Do you need more examples? Okay, try these -- if the taker says THREE TIMES that he or she will file for divorce with an ex but does not do so, says THREE TIMES he or she wants to make an appointment with a psychiatrist but doesn't, says THREE TIMES that he or she is putting a piece of property on the market to raise money to move in with you but doesn't, says THREE TIMES that your "intensity" makes him or her "nervous," or says THREE TIMES that he or she loves you more than life itself but explains that he or she cannot move in with you because there'll be "problems" with your children, pets, or refrigerator -- then that's the TRUTH for that person. "What i tell you three times is true." The relationship will never get any better. Okay, you don't believe me. You say, "But, catherine, THREE TIMES doesn't prove anything, it's just a number." That's right. It's just a number. So, okay, let it go to FOUR TIMES. It happened again. See? Do you feel any better because you gave that person one more chance, wasted one more day, one more week, one more month, or one more year of your life? I don't mind if you let the string of events run out to six times or eight times or ten times before you get the picture. But somewhere, sometime, you have GOT to pick a number, draw a line, and stick by it Once your personal line is crossed, it's time to take action. You still love the taker. You are hurting. What should you do? Either perform the black walnut spell at the Lucky Mojo Cut and Clear Spells page, or try this SIMPLE BLACK CANDLE ANTI-LOVE SPELL Carve the taker's name and the words "GOOD BYE" on a black candle. Dress it with Uncrossing oil. At its base place a broken or unlinked length of fine chain (you can find a broken length of bead chain at the bottom of the Uncrossing Oil i make and sell, or just break a piece of jewelry chain). Light the candle and as it burns, have a good cry and say "good bye." When the candle has burned about half-way, use its flame to set afire a photo or name-paper of the taker, then extinguish the candle in the ashes of the paper and throw the whole mess, broken chain and all, away at a crossroads in the dark of the night or bury it in a graveyard. Go home and bathe in astringent and pungent protective and mind-clearing herbs such as eucalyptus, walnut, bay, and the like (e.g. 13 Herb Bath) and get on with your life. Good luck, © 2000 catherine yronwode (email@example.com) ------------------------------------------ RELATIONSHIP-ENDING SPELL Here is a handy spell to end a relationship. You will need to know your astrology symbols -- but most cheap astrology books have them. 1 Get a black piece of paper. 2 On this black paper at the top of it you want to put the signs for Pluto,the Moon, and Saturn, on the paper, in black ink, at the top. 3 At the bottom put a pentagram (five pointed star) upside down, also in black ink. 4 On one side of the star put your birthday, on the other you put your partner's birthday, also in black ink. 5 Burn the paper. As you do so shout "NAI-KAM-MO" 6 Mail the ashes to the person. (Only do this spell once a week until that person leaves.) © 2000 webeater (9904748NO99SPAM@tay.ac.uk) ------------------------------------------ BREAKING A MAGICAL BOND WITH ANOTHER PERSON In alt.magick, I Am Mark5 (firstname.lastname@example.org) posted that he felt that he had bonded with an undesirable person in a magical way by becoming his "warder," and the bond, which he could not break, was draining him. He wanted help in terminating the magical link and wrote, in part: > PLEASE!! I beg of you!!! What deities should I call upon? > How can I destroy this evil bond!!!!! PLEASE! From the > deepest sincerity!! I need no jokes, I am dead serious. > Please! I am desperate!!! > I beg of you all! To which Nguyen replied: Look, first shut up and stop whining. Second, if a person wanted to try a link-break, they would have to evoke the bond again [to break it] ... They could use a simple sorcerous ceremony to evoke the link. ... Get a private room, and draw a diagram on a surface you can stand and walk around on. They'd diagram out a central circle one pace in diameter. Then they'd draw another circle about one pace in diameter. Then they'd connect the two circles with a line. On one side of the line would be written the person's name. One the other side of the line would be written the other person's name. Next two effigies would be prepared. A photograph with a name written on it is nice. People with old fashioned leanings can make them out of clay or wax. With some caballa one could make them out writings on sheets of paper. One effigy is for the person linked to. It's put in a bowl or something that cooking wine can burn safely in, like a aluminum kitchen bowl. The second effigy is of the donor. That can be put into an ordinary kitchen bowl as well. Next a series of things in a backwards-seeming order is performed. First, holding the effigy of the other person, the characteristics of the other person are invoked into it. It's then stuck into its bowl and sealed in its circle; let's call it circle B. Then the donor's effigy has the donor's characteristics invoked into it and it is sealed into circle A. The link connecting the two persons is then *evoked* from inside the donor, with them calling it forth and projecting it into the line connecting the two circles. Then with some convenient wand or kitchen spoon or something, tap the line connecting the two circles, invoking the line to represent the bond between the two. Then after walking three times around the whole contraption, counterclokwise and make drawing gestures with the wand, kitchen spoon, laser pointer, etc. the force linking the two is commanded to decouple and withdraw from the line into the separate sealed circles. Then the line is broken physically with the wand, laser pointer, whatever and the link is commanded to break and not reform. Remaining are two potentized effigies in separate sealed circles. It's finished up by taking salt water (epsom salts are nice) and banishing any connection that the donor effigy has with the donor by pouring the salt water over it without breaking the circle A, while commanding any connection be dissapated harmlessly. Then cooking wine is poured into the other bowl in circle B and a match is tossed in and the command is given for any link that the effigy has with the other person to be cleanly and harmlessly consumed by the flame. Then the mess is cleaned up in a normal [magical] way. If you should happen to do this, you do it at your own risk, and are fully responsibility for whatever happens. It's a good idea to experiment with cooking spirits beforehand in a controlled manner to determine what kind and amount and lighting technique is most advisable in individual circumstances. nguyen (email@example.com) [Comment by the editor: I would recommend brandy plus lighter fluid rather than mere cooking wine -- it burns more effectively and a wax effigy would melt nicely in its flame. You can use a wax figural candle in the form of a man or woman as an effigy; such candles are readily available through most occult supply stores. The salt water could be prepared with epsom salt as nguyen indicates, or with plain cooking salt, Kosher cooking salt, or a special salt such as Dead Sea salt, whichever you prefer. Finally, i would recommend placing the effigies in matched stainless steel kitchen bowls set up on bricks, with a fireproof tile surface beneath or, better, performing the entire rite outdoors using two cauldrons or camp skillets of the type that have three legs to keep them off the ground. Always be careful when working with fire. -- cat yronwode]
