1) Do this when the moon is wanning, or if you want it gone
*now* do it on the dark of the moon.

2) Use an object to a focus of what you wish to banish, and
destroy the object in the ritual (ripping and chewing it to
bits works well for some folks, burning it works for

3) Try some Datura leaves in incense as you work; it is
great for banishings. Asafoedita herb also works, but it
will also likely banish *you* (it smells incredibly vile and
induces nausea in most folks).  Hope this helps.

Example: I was having trouble finding romance, so a did a
ritual where I took a piece of black cord, and symbolically
made it the focus for all the forces, internal and external,
which were keeping me from finding romance. I annointed it
with my blood, saliva and semen. I then ripped and chewed
the cord to bits, and burned the remains. I summoned up all
of my anger about my lack of romance and focused it into the
ritual. The ritual worked, a bit *too* well at first, but
it worked.

[I've translated this Santerian spell from a Hispanic pulp
publication titled "Presagio", by Carlos Canet. There is no
clear publication date but "#172 & 173" of Year 9 were
published in 2000. Please note: the language may seem a bit
stilted and awkward, and sometimes the instructions are
somewhat incomplete, but I have translated them verbatim
from the Spanish, keeping the sense as much as possible.

You will need:

   an old tool, broken in use, 
   green and black ribbons, 
   half a pound of fried pork and half a pound of raw pork smeared with red palm oil, 
   three small bottles of gin or brandy, 
   the powders "For Me" and "10 Powers."  

Sprinkle the tool with the powders and wrap it with the
ribbons, first one then the other afterwards, write on
parchment paper with pencil the job that you desire and use
it to wrap up the meats, take the tool and the packet with
the meats to the railroad line and deposit it there, empty
the three little bottles of gin or brandy at the same place
and request your desire.

This is not a question we hear often! 

I recommend a Crown of Success type spell -- that is, one
that will increase your personal performance skills and
enhance your reputation among those who might judge you.
Success spells come in all manner of styles, and may include
ritual bathing, the use of anointing oils, the burning of
incense, and dressing oneself with sachet powders. Here is


A minimalist version of the typical Crown of Success spell
requires merely a yellow offertory candle, a candle holder,
a packet of Crown of Success Incense, and a bottle of Crown
of Success Oil.

Using a needle, pin, or small pocket knife, carve the word
"SUCCESS on the candle 9 times in a continuous spiral, like
the stripes on a barber pole. Dress the candle with Crown of
Success oil. Make up a cone of the Crown of Success incense.
Before you are due to go to the performance venue, light the
candle and hold it aloft in your hand, facing East and
saying, "May all my works be crowned with success." Next
light the incense, again saying, "May all my works be
crowned with success." Finally, dip your finger in the oil
and then anoint your forehead and the crown of your head
with one upward sweep of Crown of Success oil, saying, "May
[insert specific details, e.g. 'my performance on stage
tonight'] be crowned with success." Let the candle burn down
intil one entire "SUCCESS" word is consumed, then pinch it
out (do not blow it out) and go to the venue to perform.
Repeat each night for 9 nights until the candle is finished.
If the performance runs for a long time, you may get another
candle and continue this spell each night.

After working and completing the spell to your satisfaction,
you may also continue to dress the crown of your head with a
drop of Crown of Success oil every day, saying the same
prayer each time: "May all my works be crowned with success."



For more self-assurance on the job or at school, prepare
yourself a Crown of Success mojo bag. There are many herbal,
mineral, and zoological curios that can be included, but i
give you here 5 basic items relevant to most situations. Use
a red or yellow flannel mojo bag. If you can get a
gold-coloured metal crown chram, sew it on the outside of
the bag. Inside the bag place

     * a John the Conqueror root (for commanding power), 
     * a pinch of Five Finger Grass (for success in alll  
          that you do and so that people will grant you favours), 
     * a pinch of Deer's Tongue leaves (for eloquence in speech)
     * a pinch of Crown of Success Sachet Powder
     * your specific wish for success, written on a piece     
          of brown paper, as follows:

Tear a piece of brown paper from a bag so that no side is
machine-cut, and all four sides are neatly even. Write your
specific wish for success on the job or at school on the
paper, then turn the paper sideways and cross and cover the
wish with your own name, written 9 times. Dress the paper
with Crown of Success Oil at the four corners and fold it
toward you to draw the wish in. Turn it sideways and fold it
in toward you again, and then place it in the bag, saying as
you do so, "May all my works be crowned with success."

Perform the candle spell given above for the person who
asked for success in a stage performance. Fix this bag up on
the first night of candle-burning, after you light the
candle and incense, but before you anoint yourself. After
preparing it, pass it through the incense smoke and candle
flame, and dress it with Crown of Success Oil. Carry the
mojo bag on your person where no one can see or touch it.

If your work or school clothes (or stage costume) are such
that you cannot carry a mojo bag, then at least prepare the
brown paper as described and wear it folded up in your right

After completing the mojo to your satisfaction, you may also
continue to dress the crown of your head with a drop of
Crown of Success oil every day, saying the same prayer each
time: "May all my works be crowned with success."

By the way, if you are a musician rather than an actor, i
recommend the mojo hand combination called "The Blues Boy
Special." It contains many items mentioned in blues lyrics
and it can be worn about the person or secreted in a guitar
