Gypsy Magic



Ki shan i Romani - 
Adoi san' i chov'hani.

Wherever gypsies go,
there witches are we know -Leland

Some Gypsy Spells and Lore
(source: Leland)

Eggs

Crush up the shells of your eggs after eating them lest the witches sail out to sea using them for boats! Contrastingly, if you wish to accomplish a particular end with the person you've made eggs for, (be the end good or bad), prick their name on the inside of the shell while focusing your intent. 

Love

To keep a love by your side or bring them to you, take a blade of grass in your mouth and turning to the East then the West say:

Kay o kam avriavel,
kiya mange lele beshel!
Kay o kam tel' avel,
kiya lelakri me beshav.

Where the sun goes up
shall my love be by me. 
Where the sun goes down
there by him/her I'll be.

Cut the blade in pieces and mix it with something the person will eat. Even if they just swallow one bite, they will be gewogen und treugesinnt moved to true love.

Another spell to keep a lover with you is to gather herbs or branches from plants/trees related to love and, on a morning when there are clouds in the east, throw them Eastward saying:

Predzsia, csirik leja,
te na trada m're piranes.

Fly my bird. Fly I say!
Do not chase my love away!

Another is to approach your lover while he/she is sleeping, (naked) and cut a lock of their hair. Carry it with you in a bag, ring, or otherwise on your person. If the person wakes up while you're doing it, however/if you are caught - the spell will work the opposite way and send them away from you so careful!

To punish a faithless lover, light a candle at midnight and prick it several times with a needle saying: 

Pchagerav momely
Pchaegra tre vodyi!

Thrice the candles broke by me.
Thrice thy heart shall broken be.

Divination

A gypsy version of pendulum reading - take a strand of your hair and tie a ring to the end. Drop it into a cup or container of some sort. Ask questions that have numeric answers and count the times it hits the sides. The hair pendulum is wound around the ring finger and is also used over a bowl on which letters of the alphabet and/or numbers are drawn.

Another method of divination is to scry the bubbles in boiling water. This is particularly thought to reveal words/letters.

Some Superstitions

Don't use a needle, scissors or bake bread on Wednesday or Friday.
Do not conduct bargins on Friday's because on Friday Paraschiva, to whom the day is sacred, punishes all infractions of law.
Do not wash your hands or comb your hair on a Tuesday.
It is unlucky to wash anything on Saturday.
Working on Saints days and other Holy days is bad luck.

Intuitive Archaeology


Learn more in my upcoming Psychometry Class April 4 at the Green Man Store!

Just $20! ($23 for credit/debit). Call 818-985-2010 to register!

Learn to develop Psychometry, the ability to read the history of objects or to communicate with spirits attached to them by touch. For example, a hat could tell you about the people who wore it and their experiences and also of the places it has been. The emotions and personalities of people who possessed the object often come through very strongly as well. Psychometry can also be used to tap into and communicate with spirit guides and loved ones who have passed.

During this class we will also explore various methods to develop students individual mediumistic abilities. By the end of the two hour session you’ll be ready to continue practicing on your own!

If you have unusual objects that seem to have spirits attached to them, or if there is a loved one you would like to communicate with and you have an object that belonged to them, please bring them with you!

Previous experience with spirits and/or psychic ability is helpful but not necessary.

Thursday, April 2 - 7:30-9:30 pm Southern Conjure Series: Hoodoo Saints Magic
Just $20! ($23 if by card) Call 818-985-2010 to register.

Learn how to work roots, make mojos, read bones, read eggs and do egg cleansings and much, much more this new series exploring the folk magic of the Southern U.S., presented by Hoodoo/Conjure practitioner Elizabeth Bissette. A psychic reader, medium, and energy worker from Nashville, Elizabeth grew up in the Hoodoo-infused South and inherited natural psychic ability from her Cherokee Great-Grandmother.

An authentic Southern Conjure woman, Elizabeth incorporates direct spirit communication in her readings and magical workings. With an academic background focused on Judaism and the Early Church, she has a unique layer of insight into the many Judeo-Christian influences in Hoodoo. Her field studies in the Santeria/Lucemi tradition add additional insight into this uniquely American system of magic.

This class will provide an overview of the role of saints candles, baths, oils and altars in the system. Message me for materials info.

About the Contents Herein:


Hawthorn
Sacred to Fairies. The berries keep away evil. The leaves open your heart to love, (and to Fairies) and can heal your heart when it hurts. It is advisable to place your Black Thorn, (should you have one), in a bag of Hawthorn.

Blackthorn
Instructions available at time of order only, for safety purposes.



Mandrake
Instructions available at time of order only, for safety purposes.



Heather
Brings love, beauty, peace, luck, rain and friendly Fairies.


Lavender
Love, youth, beauty, wishes and visions of Fairies.


Calendula
Leave these flowers out so that your Fairy friends can wear them as hats when they come visit.

Positive energy, calming peace, listening, the ability to hear Fairies, seeing the future, ancestors, (including and perhaps especially Fairy ancestors), understanding the language of the birds, (if you brush them across your feet and you are very small), also, place them near you when making music, art or any other creative pursuit. An infusion of these dipped in pads placed over the eyes guarantees visions of Fairies.

Magic Wishing Balls
(Job's Tears)

Hold the 7 balls, (7 per wish) in your hand, make a wish and put the balls in your pocket. (You must think VERY hard about your wish when you hold them). Keep them in your pocket for 7 days, then, go to running water, (your sink will do), hold them in your hand, say the 23rd Psalm and throw the balls over your left shoulder in the water to get your wish.

Pixie Dust

Add to Fairy, (or any other incense), and when it sparks, Fairies are surely present. Add sugar for EXTRA magic sparks and Fairy drawing.




Fairy Drawing Incense
Self-explanatory.

Disclaimer:

Not all Fairies are nice and friendly. Many are EXTREMELY mischevious and a few are downright nasty, (like the mean one in 'Sleeping Beauty'). SO use this kit with caution.

ALSO, remember, wishes often backfire. Be VERY specific when wishing. (See 'The Fisherman and His Wife' or 'The Man Who Turned His Wife's Nose Into a Sausage' for examples.)

P.S. Fairy Godmother's are separate issues and require entirely different bags of magic as a general rule. This kit MIGHT bring yours but I offer no guarantees.
