I am a witch of about 9 years now and have had many successes with magick. But there is something that is bothering me.
On the normal scale I can cast love spells and employment spells for others and they turn out fine. For example, when I cast a love spell for myself the love spells work the total opposite of what I strongly visualize (Meaning that this happens despite the fact that I focus on no one in particular, cast on Friday during a waxing moon, Venus planetary hour, pink / green / red candle depending on the type of love sought, the belief that I deserve love, and the emotions / desires / visualizations are all strong).
Now when I cast an employment spell for myself, I follow the same protocol (Utilizing the proper day of week, moon phase, planetary hour and tools of choice, imparting the desire, visualization etc) and instead, my employment spells don't manifest for me at all. They only seem to manifest when they are cast for others. I would like your opinion...why can't I cast an effective love or employment spell for myself as I can for others?
Thank you in advance for reading and replying, if you are able.
Now Tanya poses an interesting question. I remember just such a problem in the old Enchantments days. We were a close knit coven all working in the shop and carving one successful candle and weaving one powerful spell after another for lots of OTHER people. But when we did magickal work for ourselves, it just wasn't quite as effective. That's when we got the idea to do magick for each other. Ha, worked like a charm. So Tanya, I hope you're not a solitary because I think what you need is a witch buddy to work a spell for you. That's just how it is sometimes. We may become too attached to the results when we work our own spells and actually block them from manifesting. Best of luck, magick, and success.

I have read spells where they say to bury something in front of someones house in in their front yard which is not all that practical considering stalking laws and such.
I did notice that the neighborhood of the home of my particular target is having work done by the local government where they are laying some pipe, wires or something. The closest holes that are dug are conveniently deep and will buried over by heavy duty bobcats but the closest hole is a few houses away but while they are digging, I could easily drive by and toss something into the hole in ground and it would be buried and cemented over-pretty permenant. I could also throw something into several of the holes surrounding the home; Would this work still or would it be geographically specific to the exact home it is buried directly in front of?
This all depends what type of spell it is. For example, there are love spells that require a person to step over something in order to fall in love. In this case, anyone might step over the buried object. Another common type of spell where the burying method is employed is to banish someone. In this case, you may end up evacuating residents from the house nextdoor, up the block, etc.. I would not guarantee that your spell would be effective if you are only putting something in the general area of your "target". Also, in choosing the word, "target" I wonder what this is really about. Be careful of trying to harm someone as you may end up harming yourself. You might also want to look for another spell to accomplish your desire that is not as intrusive.

My parents are both Buddhists, my mother was raised Catholic and my father was raised Jewish, and they got married in a Unitarian Universalist church. I was raised in a Unitarian Universalist church no matter where we lived. Haha, it's all very confusing. But I grew up in the pueblos in New Mexico and absorbed the culture there since I was young. I have believed in spirits, spirit animals, divination, herbs, and spell-casting, since I was about 4, more so once I understood it all more completely. But recently I've moved to the near opposite side of the world, where they have a different culture. They have similar beliefs and some core concepts and I see them, but is ultimately different. I have been unable to accept this particular culture and miss New Mexico and the Native American culture very much.
I love reading and have bought several books involving New Age and Occult and various other religions that appealed to me. Yet none of them seemed to quite fit right. It seems as though every religion I've studied under has had some aspect that I just can't dedicate myself to, or is missing something that I find essential. I often feel that I need some higher being to look to, and I do believe that there is something out there, or someone, or more than one. I know that I am not Monotheist, I believe that there is more than one person/thing out there running things, so I've never been interested in Christianity or and division of it. [Also being told repeatedly that I am the Devil's Child and that I am going to hell has put a damper on Christianity and it's followers. This is also why I don't let certain Christian friends of mine know I practice certain aspects of Pagan Wicca or Druid beliefs or practices.]
Basically I want to find a religion or practice that I know I can be happy with and that will help me through the things I'm going through. I know a few questions I have in mind, but I'm not entirely sure what made me want to write you. I've just been searching for guidance spiritually, and so far, found none. My parent’s beliefs are too different for them to understand. [They find most of my beliefs "bull-s***", “hooey”, and "stupid". I no longer tell them of my practices or beliefs if I can avoid it. They don’t believe I will go to hell or anything, as far as I know, but they dislike it anyways. My father wouldn’t even allow me to have a picture with fire as my desktop. I could tell what he was thinking as he told me to change it. I only got 2 words clearly though “spell” and “hell”. I said I would change it, I just got back on the computer, and he has changed it FOR me. I apparently couldn’t be trusted to do it myself.]
I am NOT just a teenager rebelling. I really believe what I believe, while my parents say it’s just a stage and to get over it. But I know I won’t and never will. I'm sorry this letter is so long, and I'll get to the point now. These are some of my questions. Some I have answers for and I just would like to know your opinion, because I've read your book and hold your opinion in high regard.
2. Are there any good spells to help with Depression? [I have clinical Depression and Somatic Disorder and was wondering if there was anything I could do. I don’t really want to be on meds…unless it’s my last hope and helps.]
3. How can I test if I have spiritual or psychic abilities? [I believe I can sense spirits, auras, and other people’s thoughts. I also have been proven to have been able to foresee things, dreams, premonitions, just sitting and getting a vision, etc. If I’ve had extensive conversations with people on the phone before, I can tell just when they’re about to call, and who is calling.]
It sounds like you have already tested this and it works. Think about training your gift so that it can be useful to you and others. There are many great books out there for training the third eye and psychic senses.
4. I often feel as if there is a large well of energy or power or emotion, or SOMETHING, stowed away inside myself, a calm static. That blocks out anything else that causes me harm. It eventually makes it disappear. It’s hard to explain. It’s as if, once I retreat into the static it takes hold, and protects me from whatever is hurting, and slowly what’s hurting me goes away. [Example: a friend hurt me once, badly, insulted me and my beliefs, in MY house. Calling me horrid names, and resulting in, something I avoid, tears. She leaves and I retreat into my static. Later, she get’s into unexplained conflicts with other friends, who I had nothing to do with, and is left sad and alone. Eventually she left me alone and did not bother me anymore. Once she left my life her bad luck and run with fellows ceased, and she returned to being cute and perfect. Gag. I don’t know what any of this is. It feels like an involuntary thing. I NEVER wished harm upon her, just for her to leave me alone, and understand how I felt. Suddenly, within days, she did. Stuff like this happens a lot. I seem to empathize and understand peoples hidden emotions easily, also making them understand MY hidden emotions and thoughts without saying or acting anything.]
Well, here I would have to tell you that as powerful as this seems, I do not endorse this kind of silent energy. One of the most magickal things we have are our feelings and our words. I might also include our tears. As powerful as it may feel to read minds or project thoughts and feelings, I think it's best to SAY WHAT'S ON OUR MIND!!! You could have allowed yourself to cry and let her know how you felt and that she hurt your feelings. Perhaps you could have even become closer friends after talking it through. Or you could have decided to cut her loose. The point is, I discourage this kind of use of the spiritual energy because it can actually drain us and lead us away from our true paths. I think we can trust the karmic cycle to teach all of us lessons. IE: What comes around goes around. I do however like the fact that you seem to have an inate understanding of psychic self defense. That's cool!
Any and all advice you can offer me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for your valuable time to read my, not-so-valuable letter. :)
Thank you again, I really do appreciate it.
Signed, Alma Perdida
Your letter was quite valuable and I'm sure it will be helpful to others and that is why I have chosen to answer it here. I think you are not as lost (perdida) a soul (alma) as you claim. Perhaps more of a searching one :)

You’ve done a jaw dropping job with the Cubs!!! (10/31/06, if I remember rightly)
Hope they’ve sent to VIP Box seats to the games. Hope they give credit where credit is due.

P.S. I hope you Enjoy the New Moon

Thank you for all your prayers and efforts for Lily Belle! Lily Belle came home late Friday night/early Sat morning. No obvious bleeding or gashes but it is painfully obvious that some great trauma occurred. She is not herself at all. Normally the friendliest of all our cats, she is avoiding everyone and hiding in the woods. She is totally skitzed out, with wild starting eyes and is not responding to verbal communication. I am beyond worried. Thank you so much for your concern and help! A few more prayers would be truly appreciated.Blessed be,Dee
Great Job Readers, but as you see, she still needs some more spiritual energy to calm down. Thanks for all your help. Dee, I suggest placing some lavender around the house to calm her spirit.

for those of you who remember, Witch Dr removed the Curse of the Billy Goat from the Chicago Cubs on ESPN's Cold Pizza TV segment. The ritual was performed on Halloween and Witch DR predicted a win for the Cubs in 2007. Fingers crossed and mojo tossed, looks like they're doing well and on their way!

Wicca Teacher Claims 1 Mega Ticket
By TODD HALLIDY – 8 hours ago
NOTTINGHAM, Md. (AP) — Elwood "Bunky" Bartlett says a New Age book store made it possible for him to become an overnight multimillionaire.
He and his wife, Denise, were on their way to the shop where he occasionally teaches Wicca and Reiki (RAY'kee) healing when they stopped at a liquor store and bought two $5 Mega Millions tickets for Friday night's estimated $330 million jackpot. On Sunday, he said one ticket was a winner.
"If it wasn't for this place I wouldn't have won the lottery," Bartlett said Sunday at Mystickal Voyage, the New Age shop.
Four winning tickets to the Mega Millions jackpot were sold in Maryland, New Jersey, Texas and Virginia. Lottery officials said Sunday they cannot confirm the validity of Bartlett's ticket before they meet with him on Tuesday.
"There's no reason to believe it's not legitimate, but it has to go through security," said Maryland State Lottery Director Buddy Roogow, who said he has spoken with Bartlett.
Bartlett, an accountant from Dundalk, said he made a bargain with the multiple gods associated with his Wiccan beliefs: "You let me win the lottery and I'll teach." Both tickets he purchased had numbers chosen randomly from the computer.
Bartlett had not decided if he will accept his winnings as an annuity or choose the lump sum cash option. The jackpot could get larger once ticket sales are tallied, Roogow said, but the lump sum payment would be at least $48.7 million, or about $32 million after taxes.
According to preliminary calculations, each ticket would be worth about $82 million if the prize were taken in 26 annual payments.
Bartlett said the money won't change him, although he plans to invest in Mystickal Voyage. "I'm going to live my life like I have been," he said.
The odds that any ticket would match all five numbers — 8, 18, 22, 40 and 44 — and the Mega Ball number — 11 — were one in 176 million.
If estimates of the jackpot hold true, it would be the fourth largest in the lottery's history. It was known as The Big Game when it awarded jackpots of $363 million in 2000 and $331 million in 2002.
Mega Millions tickets are also sold in California, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Ohio and Washington.
Associated Press Writer Kasey Jones contributed to this report.

Recently, astronauts voted on the top photographs taken by Hubble, in its 16-year journey so far. Remarking in the article from the Daily Mail, reporter Michael Hanlon says the photos 'illustrate that our universe is not only deeply strange, but also almost impossibly beautiful.'
The Sombrero Galaxy - 28 million light years from Earth - was voted best picture taken
by the Hubble telescope. The dimensions of the galaxy, officially called M104, are as
spectacular as its appearance. It has 800 billion suns and is 50,000 light years across.
The Ant Nebula, a cloud of dust and gas whose technical name is Mz3, resembles
an ant when observed using ground-based telescopes. The nebula lies within our
galaxy between 3,000 and 6,000 light years from Earth.
In third place is Nebula NGC 2392, called Eskimo because it looks like a face
surrounded by a furry hood. The hood is, in fact, a ring of comet-shaped objects
flying away from a dying star. Eskimo is 5,000 light years from Earth.
At four is the Cat's Eye Nebula
The Hourglass Nebula, 8,000 light years away, has a pinched-in-the-middle look because the winds that shape it are weaker at the centre.
The Perfect Storm, a small region in the Swan Nebula, 5,500 light years away,
described as 'a bubbly ocean of hydrogen and small amounts of oxy gen, sulphur
and other elements'.
Starry Night, so named because it reminded astronomers of the Van Gogh painting.
It is a halo of light around a star in the Milky Way.
The glowering eyes from 114 million light years away are the swirling cores of two merging galaxies called NGC 2207 and IC 2163 in the distant Canis Major constellation. (This one reminds me of owl eyes and the right eye also looks like an angel wing.)
The Trifid Nebula. A 'stellar nursery', 9,000 light years from here, it is where new stars are being born.
The Cone Nebula

1. The Ottomans prepared by Adbülkadir Dedeoglu
"The rules are to provide a list of books that you have on your shelves to see if anyone can learn about you from them - but not just any books. They have to be books that you've actually paid for, nothing given, borrowed, stolen, or whatever."
this is a hardcover I bought in the museum in Istanbul. Very interesting read about the Sultans and their lives.
2. The Persian Boy by Mary Renault.
I've read and reread this one. Simply divine! Also 3 different psychics have told me I was Bagoas in a past-life. Now that's pretty revealing...
3. The Prophet by Kahil Gibran
a real treasure - constantly referring to this book.
4. Tango by Collier, Cooper, Azzi, y Martin
My first tango book :)
5. The Chief The Life of William Randolph Hearst by David Nasaw
Since I'm working for Hearst Corp., I thought I should read it. A lot more revealing than Citizen Kane although I just adore Orson Welles.
6. The Supermarket Sorceress by Lexa Roséan
I have 3 copies and I think they are among the last 10 still circulating in print. This was, of course, my first published book on witchcraft. (hmm, this is the only book on the list that I didn't purchase - although I worked very hard to write it :)
7. The Women's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets by Barbara Walker
I've referred to this book so many times throughout the years that the pages are falling out.
8. The Secret by Rhonda Byrne
Yeah, I bought it - way before they made it on Oprah. Not very impressed with the content but their marketing strategies are to kill for!
9. Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly P. Hall
Now this has some real meaty SECRETS between the pages!
10. Complete collection of John Irving's works.
I love him!
11. Collected Fictions by Borges
12. "Degenerate Art" The Fate of the Avant-Garde in Nazi Germany
Very powerful. I saw the exhibition in Berlin of the original artworks banned by Hitler and bought this book there.
13. Moby Dick by Herman Melville
I own several additions of this work. Kind of an obsession.

Below is a copy of an email I received from Democrats.com. This is scary stuff. We do not want another war. Especially with Iran. If people would only take the time to learn the truth about other cultures, they would not be so afraid. Especially a culture like Iran - the Persian people are a beautiful lot and have an ancient culture full of mysticism and goddess lore. They are educated and enlightened and unlike FOX, Iran is NOT an AXIS of EVIL! Take some action to stop the lies!
As the 2008 campaign begins, Republicans are heading towards another crushing defeat like 2006.
So what is the Republican plan to steal the 2008 election? Is it to start another war - this time in Iran?
Our friends at Brave New Films have documented a new wave of FOX News lies about Iran that are frighteningly identical to the FOX News lies about Iraq.
Let's tell the other networks not to follow FOX News down the road to an even more disastrous war with Iran.
I remember very clearly the daily fearmongering led by FOX as they cheered for war with Iraq. The 24/7 images, sound effects, yelling and threatening were an ever-present drumbeat for war. We had to invade, and we had to invade now.. anyone who didn't see that was a traitor. They viciously attacked those of us who worked to get out the truth.
You'd think that with the complete failure in Iraq, those days would be behind us. Sadly, you'd be wrong.
Now FOX wants war with Iran.
It's almost too ridiculous to believe, but it's shockingly real. We've already compiled over 4 hours of FOX footage... the same images, sound effects, yelling and threatening that led the U.S. to invade Iraq is happening right now to sell a war with Iran. They are saying the exact same things!!
Here is the video evidence, side-by-side with what they said about Iraq.
But this time is different. We're prepared, and we have the means to alert people to what FOX is doing. Everyone has seen the terrible tragedy and the awful price paid by so many Iraqis and Americans. We know this is coming, and we can stop it.
It was about this time in the lead-up to the Iraq war when the other TV networks started following FOX's lead. As CNN's Christiane Amanpour says in the video, they were intimidated by FOX into cheerleading for the Iraq war.
WE CANNOT LET THIS HAPPEN AGAIN.
This is a critical moment, and we must send a message to the major television networks urging them to ask tough questions, be skeptical, and tell us what is really happening. They must not follow FOX down the road to another war.
We've put together an open letter to the networks. Will you sign it?
Please forward this message on to everyone you know. We must raise our voices now. This is so important, we cannot let history repeat itself.
and the Brave New Films team
P.S. Here are some recent articles on war with Iran:"The balance in the internal White House debate over Iran has shifted back in favour of military action before President George Bush leaves office in 18 months"

|Your Life Path Number is 11|
Your purpose in life is to inspire others
Your amazing energy draws people to you, and you give them great insight in return.
You hold a great amount of power over others, without even trying.
You have the makings of an inventor, artist, religious leader, or prophet.
In love, you are sensitive and passionate. You connect with your partner on a very deep level.
You have great abilities, but you are often way too critical of yourself.
You don't fit in - and instead of celebrating your differences, you dwell on them.
You have high expectations of yourself. But sometimes you set them too high and don't achieve anything.
1. The Sun is 24 degrees Leo. Many will experience today as a passionate and productive day. Others may respond with a lazy lion's stretch. Regardless, the outlook will be bright.
2. The Moon is in Libra making this a great day for partnerships of all kinds.
3. Mercury is in Leo and communications will be big and boastful.
4. Venus is retrograde in Leo and this continues to put stress on love relationships. Watch your pride and keep the ego in check.
5. Mars is in Gemini and gives us lots of mental energy and success with technology and computers.
6. Jupiter is once again direct in Sagittarius and our plans for the future begin to move forward toward fruition.
7. Saturn dwells proudly in Leo for her last few weeks after a 2 year cycle. Proceed with humility and you can't lose.
8. Uranus is retrograde in Pisces* and continues to bring chaos and suffering into the world.
9. Neptune is retrograde in Aquarius* symbolizing a second (and perhaps last) chance to use science and technology to create a better future for our earth's environment.
10. Pluto is retrograde in Sagittarius* and we see the world's leaders struggle for power and progress.
11. The Moon trines Mars bringing harmony and understanding between men and women.
12. The Moon sextiles Jupiter bringing surprises and unexpected boons of fortune.
13. The Moon is waxing and still in its first quarter (new moon). It is a time for hope and new beginnings. An excellent day to get a project off the ground successfully.

I am a huge fan. I have read all your books! I am looking for a way to decrease all the negativity and increase the positive in my life. I like to think that I am a good person, and I continue to get caught in the negative energy of others. I am looking for a powerful way to change this for myself and those I love.
In the Wicca, the journey through the abyss is part of the second degree initiation in which we learn about the dark side of human nature. We must pass through the abyss in order to re emerge in the light.
In the Kabbalah, one of the 72 names of G-d is meditated upon to eliminate negativity.
The name is read (or scanned) from right to left and the letters are:
AYIN LAMED MEM
In the Wicca, we shield by using mirroring techniques to ward off the negativity of others. Salt water baths are taken or smudging is done with sage to clear negativity from our own auras and homes.
Last but not least - I offer up the song (below) because I believe it offers just about the best magickal advice around. Always remember to ACCENTUATE THE POSITIVE!!!

Here's an excerpt of what one client had to say about my Weather Magick:
"As Hurricane Wilma set her sights on where I live in Southwest Florida, I made my preparations to weather the storm. With little time to spare, I realized that I wanted and needed a spell for protection... so I contacted Lexa. She provided me with a spell which would provide protection from disasters of a watery nature... Wilma made landfall a mere 30 miles from where I live. And although damages were widespread, my home was untouched. I'm deeply grateful to Lexa for the guidance she gave me when I most needed it. And I thank her for caring enough to contact me after the storm had passed to see if I was safe."- Athena Oct 2005

You need help in the patience dept!!! The fact that you sent me the same question over 3 times in separate emails has honestly ANNOYED me! It does not give me a lot of faith in your patience to sustain a relationship or even the realistic workings of the kind of spells you would have to work in order to bring positive change into this situation.
You ask for change but yet say you are willing to keep the status quo. Which is it? For magick to be truly effective, we must be committed to it! If you want to arrive at a certain destination, you cannot keep turning round in the road to revisit a place you have already been.
Now if you want to keep the relationship going as it is, I suggest using aphrodisiac foods and herbs such as oysters, celery, mint. (For a full list, you'll need to consult my book The Encyclopedia of Magickal Ingredients.) Yes, you will need to cook for him and infuse these things into both of your diets. You will also need to make constant offerings to Aphrodite and/or other goddesses of sexual delight and passion.
With regard to the larger goal? I am not exactly clear about what you are asking? Do you want him to quit his job in "nightlife" so he will not longer be "surrounded by women all the time"? Is there something he has done to make you doubt that he can (or wants to be) exclusive with you? If so, then you are treading in dangerous territory, especially if you attempt to do magick to try and control him and his will. This type of magick often backfires.
There is a candle spell that can be prepared (it can be ordered through my website) to help a relationship develop deeper. One can also petition the love goddess Erzuli for such matters. She loves pink, roses, melons. You can also work with red figure candles (one male/one female). Rub the candles with a love oil of rose, lemon, and musk and burn them for 10 minutes for 7 nights. Each night move the candles closer to each other. On the last night (which should end up on a full moon) let the candles be touching each other and melt completely into each other. Also on the 7th night, let the 2 candles burn to completion. Each night you must sit in front of the candles while they are burning and visualize how you would like the relationship to develop so that you can get closer. You may also petition the goddess for help in this matter. For many more love spells addressing this issue and other matters in love, please refer to my book The Supermarket Sorceress's Sexy Hexes.
blessed be and please remember to be patient. Bewitching as love spells may be, the immediate results of Samantha Stevens and her nose twitching are the stuff of tv sitcoms and magick does not always work that way in real life. Magick is the witches' form of prayer. Not all prayers are answered but that doesn't mean we shouldn't keep asking/praying for what we want. However, I caution you, that if you work spells, the way you send emails, it is an indication that you have little respect for or trust in the powers that be. Do not bombard the gods with your requests. (nor should you bombard the W.D.) Have a little faith and trust that your request has been heard and will be answered in good time. May the goddess bless you with true and lasting love.

thanks Joanna. this is thrilling and I checked out Faith Central. I think it is really terrific in its diversity. I will add it to my links and I encourage my readers to go and check it out. I see there are other pagans sites mentioned as well. Thanks again and Goddess Bless.
