What do what we think about binding, hexing and cursing?
Although I do not do this type of work myself, I am aware many traditions do not shy away from darker spellwork. All things being equal, I live in the grey areas myself, and I do not judge the traditions of others. However, as I was described in my youth, I have a brilliant mind, and I suffer a burning curiosity. So let’s talk about the dark side.
Lately, I have been reading requests for help with curses (casting them, and breaking them), and instructions for hexing as well as binding. Everyone seems to be unsteady in 2020, and a large number of relationships are in troubled waters. Family, friends, loved ones, romantic, business – you name the relationship, and it is on the rocks.
On the upside, better to know than not know; this is Three of Swords energy, and once revealed, you can work on healing. But healing is not what people are seeking. Revenge and striking back – or striking first – is what people seem to want. Disrupting the free will of others is what they are setting to accomplish. Here’s an example, and one of my favorites in 2020:
“How do I bind a woman that wants to steal other people’s husbands?”
My first thought: If you do not know how, you shouldn’t be doing it. (Sincerely, learning by doing is important but we do not practice by messing with the lives of others – it is dangerous for all concerned. Whether you believe it or not, Karma* does not care what tradition you follow, and it is a mistake to incur her notice this way.)
My second thought: You are looking at the wrong end of your problem. (What can be more mundane than actually dealing with your own husband? Cheaters cheat; a “good man” will not stray from his true love over sex, and if he does, that’s about him not the women in his life. Deal with your husband. You cannot bind all the women in the world.)
My final thought: Have you tried counseling?** (Again, deal with your husband, and your insecurities while you are at it. Do not dismiss counseling out of hand – if you haven’t tried it, how do you know it won’t work? And if you did try, and it didn’t work, you probably need a lawyer more than a spell.)
Throwing it out to the crowd; what are your thoughts on curses, hexes, and binding? First step? Last resort? Think about it – I look forward to your thoughts.
Be happy. Be safe. Be well.

*I like the concept of Karma as a personification of the many forms of balance, justice, etc. The Universe abhors a vacuum, and Yin/Yang will always seek each other out.
**To be clear, I am a witch for sure; I will cast a spell if I feel it is appropriate but only after I have dealt with the mundane. If I cast a good health spell, you better believe I’ve seen the doctor. If I cast a protection spell, you know I locked the doors. The mundane first – ALWAYS!
