I am hesitant to ask this of you but how do you remove what might be a curse?
To cut a very long story short, I went to the house of a relative for Thanksgiving and ended up in a terrible drunken argument about politics and conspiracy theories with a distant cousin. This person – a very dark emanating Sagittarius – has never liked me and styles himself as a sort of “voodoo master” warlock character. He is what you would call “douche-core” but harmless so long as we are on different sides of the planet.
For the first 30 minutes of seeing him, we got along really well and actually bonded on how unique we were compared to the rest of the people there. THEN, several drinks and some dream weed later, it all went to shit and he cursed me. To my face. I do not want to repeat it and give it additional power but I felt shocked. Now I understand that I should just shake this off but I fear it worked.
Ever since then I have had terrible focus, I feel scattered and like I just want to run away or somehow knock myself out. I keep running through all of my failures and fears on a loop. I know he is a douche and I don’t want to be affected by him but I am. Do you have any advice for me and is this something that might feel better after the Full Moon?
Love and Appreciation,
Dear Fearful Gemini,
Before we get into anything magical about this wanker, may I just say that it is absolutely natural and normal to be disturbed by such appalling conduct. And I am sure I speak for everyone on here when I say, please take practical steps to ensure this person is nowhere in your contacts, life, a sphere of social life, whatever. If there is one more attempted reach-out from this person, you can surely notify the police, right?
Secondly, his styling is inept – a “warlock” is not a male witch. A warlock is a term for a sort of shadow agent, a person whom in the inquisition and the burning times would pretend to be interested in paganism so as to infiltrate witch circles and inform on them to the Vatican/arsehole council of the day and so on.
Thirdly, if this person had any occult gravitas what-so-ever he would understand that curses and ill intent bounces back (three-fold, they say) on the person making them. That’s why if you are doing rituals and so on, you try to focus on your self and the higher good.
Fourthly, voodoo is like the occult version of Air Tasker in that you’re kind of putting up “a job” and asking any entity hanging around to bid for it. Dabbling in it is more likely to cause him issues than you. However, let’s just say that Cousin Douche Core did manage to assign some low-level entity-bogan the job of scattering your energy and lowering your vibe. You clear that shit are warp speed and send it scurrying back to Cousin Douche Core.
How? First, stay off all alcohol and so on – this is not a moral judgment but they can definitely make you more energetically vulnerable. Next, if this were me, I would smudge with Mugwort if possible, bang some Tibetan bells around, put a line of salt across the threshold, mist the air with something no-nonsense and bracing – ti-tree/lemon sort of thing – and then take an Alchemy Bath. I would also play Ride of the Valkyries but that’s just my Mars in Virgo/German ancestry perhaps.
Weirdly, I just had a vibe that your particular issue would respond well to something Grind-Core and a rattle.
BELIEVE that you can shake this off like a summer bug flying too close and remember to invoke Mercury – sanguine, not phased by anything, a guide to Gemini folk and mediatrix between worlds and different dimensions. But take note: the cleansing might make you feel temporarily unwell, as you shift this sorry-arse energy from your realm.
