Season of Leviathan

The Autumnal Equinox is considered ruled by Leviathan. It’s a time of reassessment, introspection, and even start making changes now for new beginnings later (spring). For many people, it’s an invigorating, inspiring time. For others, it’s time to nest for the winter. But Leviathan is not the only Daemon who can be worked with effectively this time of year.

Daemons of Autumn: Alloces, Amy, Baalberith, Bathin, Botis, Caim, Dagon, Gremory, Ipos, Leviathan, Marax, Murmur, Orobas, Purson, Sallos, Zepar

Magickal Work to focus on in Autumn: Changes toward goals, Necromancy, Divination, Manifestation. Removing obstacles.

Shadow-Work to Consider: Assessing what needs to change. Facing fears about change. Healing from emotional trauma preventing change.

Real-World Follow-Through – Start or launch new projects. Apply for higher positions and different jobs. Complete certification courses. Take classes to improve your career potential. Start planning now to return to school in spring. Make the changes to yourself and your environment to help you thrive.

Autumn is also a good time for healing the psyche. If you’ve been considering therapy for anything from addiction to coping – now is a great time to enter treatment or come up with a plan.

Astrology & Demonolatry

By S. Connolly (edited and posted by Frank Domovoi)

A lot of people ask if astrology and Demonolatry have anything to do with one another. Just like most Western Magical Traditions, there is definitely room for astrology in Demonolatry. You can learn more about foundational correspondences by checking out the textbook we use for pre-initiate training for such things.

Where astrology is used:

  • When discovering one’s elemental makeup.
  • When looking at where the Goetic spirits fall on the decans of the Zodiac.
  • When planning magical work.

Tropical or Sidereal

This seems to be a matter of personal preference. I am an old school astrologer who prefers the Tropical Zodiac because I find it more accurate. Sidereal Astrology labels me a Gemini and adjusts my Moon sign and it doesn’t fit me at all. It’s like looking at someone I don’t know. Whereas where I fall on the tropical zodiac fits me to a T and it’s like looking in a mirror when I interpret my Sun and Moon signs.

What if I don’t know my exact time of birth?

That’s when astrologers use this thing called Rectification, where they plug your birthdate and place, and if we have a general time, into a calculator and it will attempt to divine an approximate time of birth. This is not always accurate and can be tricky. Even trickier for people who don’t know their exact date of birth either. Some people find this sketchy. Where it matters is usually not the Sun sign, or any of the slow-moving planets. Where it matters is the faster moving planets and which houses everything falls into. And that’s a big thing in anyone’s chart.

What is a Natal Chart:

A natal chart, using the time, location, and date of your birth indicates where all the planets were when you were born. The natal chart is often a picture of someone’s inborn skills, inclinations, and personality. When I do a magical natal chart reading, that’s what I’m looking for. Markers that indicate specialty areas of magic a person was born with a talent for. That does not mean you can’t excel in other areas or develop the skills to learn magic in other areas. Instead, it’s basically a report that suggests where your strengths are, whether your a natural magician, and may indicate other talents like attraction magic, necromancy and spirit communication skills (mediumship), and psychic divination abilities. Yes, they’re often indicated in the birth chart.

What is a transit?

A transit is the passage of a planet or celestial body relative to the location of another celestial body or sector in an astrological chart. Astrological transits involve interpreting the ongoing movement of the planets as they transit the horoscope, most often for an individual’s birth or Natal Chart.

What is a transit report?

A transit report is a report of all the important dates (for challenges or opportunities) coming up in the coming year for you. I can do these with or without Daemonic influences to help you through each transit.

What is a full transit report?

While a standard transit report only covers the movement of slower moving planetary influences, a full transit report covers all the faster moving planets as well – and can therefore be 200+ pages long.

You can order natal charts, magical natal charts where your natal chart is read for magical markers, transit reports with and without Demons and full natal charts HERE.

What if I think Astrology is bunk?

Not everyone finds that astrology resonates with them. If it’s not for you, it’s not for you and that’s okay. However, most of the magical traditions hold it as part of their traditions and part of their basic foundational correspondences.

Can you recommend a good book on the subject?

I’ve found The Only Astrology Book You’ll Ever Need a great reference for those just delving into astrology for the first time. It will give you the basics in an easy to understand manner.

What are your recommended books about astrology? Do you think astrology is bunk or that it’s accurate? Are you a sidereal or tropical zodiac proponent and why? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Intuition and Its Place in Magick

What is intuition? Understanding the inner workings of this mysterious phenomenon has fascinated philosophers, scientists, and ordinary people alike for centuries. Intuition can be defined as a deep knowing or understanding without the need for conscious reasoning or logical analysis. It is an instinctive feeling that arises within us, guiding our thoughts and actions in ways that often defy explanation.

Intuition operates on a subconscious level, drawing upon the vast wealth of knowledge and experiences that each of us has accumulated throughout our lives. It taps into our innate wisdom and allows us to make quick decisions based on patterns and connections that our rational minds may not immediately recognize. This extraordinary ability enables us to navigate complex situations more easily, sometimes leading us to outcomes far beyond what we could have achieved through deliberate thought processes.

While intuition is often associated with gut feelings or hunches, it goes much deeper than mere guesswork. There are a good number of “types” of intuition (or different terms/descriptors for intuition) and it’s good to have a general idea of the various concepts.

Cognitive intuition arises from our subconscious mind’s ability to process vast amounts of information without conscious effort. It allows us to make quick judgments or decisions based on patterns or associations formed through previous experiences. If you’re someone who continually repeats the same mistakes or patterns, however, cognitive intuition may not be your strong suit.

Emotional intuition is deeply rooted in our feelings and emotions, guiding us through situations where logic alone falls short. This is where you’d throw all the gut feelings and emotional reactions.

Expert intuition is based on previous experience and knowledge in a specific domain. It can help you make rapid and accurate decisions when the situation is similar to previous ones.

Social intuition is based on our sense of interpersonal relationships and emotions. It can help us build new working partnerships and collaborations when face-to-face interactions are involved. If you are socially awkward, social intuition may not be your strong point.

Temporal intuition is based on a sense of timing and readiness. It can help make decisions on when to enter or exit a market or opportunity when external and internal factors are aligned. People who are “before their time” often lack temporal intuition.

Creative intuition is based on a sense of direction for an unfamiliar solution or opportunity. It can help generate innovative ideas and solutions when the situation requires a new approach or perspective. While all these types of intuition can play a role in magickal intuition, it’s primarily creative intuition that comes into play when we’re discussing using intuition in a magickal practice.

The good news is that intuition is a skill that can be developed and honed. It’s not something that only some people have and others don’t. Everyone has it. It’s a natural and innate ability that we all possess, but we may need to learn how to hone and use it effectively.

There are many ways to strengthen our intuition:

Spend time in silence or meditation. This can help you quiet your mind and tune into your inner voice. You can also use guided meditations or affirmations that focus on enhancing your intuition,

Listen to your body and emotions. Or, as you’ve probably heard many times – listen to your gut. Your visceral and emotional reactions can give you clues about what your intuition is telling you. Pay attention to any physical sensations, feelings, images, or thoughts that arise when you face a decision or a situation. Notice if you feel relaxed, tense, excited, fearful, and so on. If the prospect of something makes you feel sick – don’t do it. If your immediate reaction is to not do something, don’t do it. The first instinctive reaction can often be the correct reaction. The best way to strengthen your intuition is to use it and trust it. Whenever you have a hunch or a gut feeling about something, follow it and see what happens. You may be surprised by the results. The more you act on your intuition, the more confident and accurate it will become.

Ask yourself questions and trust the answers. You can use your intuition to guide you in any area of your life by asking yourself questions and listening to the first answer that comes to mind. Don’t overthink or doubt yourself, just go with what feels right. You can also write down your questions and answers in a journal to keep track of your intuitive insights.

Acknowledge and appreciate your intuition. Another way to strengthen your intuition is by actually acknowledging its presence in your life. Whenever you notice a synchronicity or have a sense of déjà vu, take a moment to appreciate and thank your intuition for guiding you. This way, you are giving it a chance to grow and blossom. Not to mention regular acknowledgement makes us more aware that something exists, and causes us to pay closer attention to it.

Play intuitive games and exercises. You can also have fun with your intuition by playing games and exercises that challenge and enhance it. For example, you can try guessing who is calling before you answer the phone, picking a card from a deck and sensing its color or suit, or imagining what someone is wearing or doing before you see them. This is something we did with my old coven back in the late 80’s and early 90’s. It really does help. You can also get together with friends, each of you bringing an object with you, then feeling each other’s objects and jotting down your intuitive feelings about the objects. At the end of the game, everyone excluding the owner of the object gets up and reads what they wrote about the object. Finally – the owner of the object gets up and explains who owned the object, why they brought it, whether it was cherished or used, etc…

Learning to trust your intuition can be challenging, especially if you have been taught to ignore or doubt it. However, trusting your intuition can help you make better decisions, align with your true self, and live more authentically. Practice strengthening your intuition using the suggestions above in order to trust it more.

The Role of Intuition in Magick

Intuition is a very important aspect of magick, as it can help you connect with your higher self, your Daemonic Guides, and the natural world. It can help you choose the right rituals, interpret the results, and receive guidance and inspiration for your magickal goals. It can also help you to create your own rituals.

Intuition can be a form of communication with the divine. Many spiritual traditions and magickal practitioners believe that intuition is a way of accessing the divine wisdom that resides within us and around us.

Intuition is often seen as the voice of our soul, our higher self, or our spirit guides. By trusting our intuition, we are aligning ourselves with our Great Work and potential, as well as our authentic selves.

Intuition is a source of creativity and innovation. Intuition can also help us tap into our creative and imaginative abilities, which are essential for magick. It can help us generate new ideas, solutions, and possibilities that may not be obvious to our rational mind.

So, how comfortable are you with your intuition? How often do you access it for your magickal work?

Surviving Mercury Retrogrades

If you’re a believer in astrology and the effects of the placements of the planets – Mercury retrograde is real and it can be a real challenge.

What Happens During Mercury Retrograde:

According to astrologers, Mercury retrograde is a phenomenon that occurs when the planet Mercury appears to be moving backward in the sky from our viewpoint on Earth. In actuality, this is an optical illusion caused by the different orbital speeds of Earth and Mercury. That said, astrologers believe that Mercury retrograde affects communication, technology, travel and other aspects of life that are related to Mercury’s domain. They also believe that each Mercury retrograde period has a different theme depending on the astrological sign and house that Mercury is transiting. Some people may experience more challenges, delays or misunderstandings during Mercury retrograde, while others may use this time to review, reflect and revise their plans.

Some of you may have noticed the effects of a Mercury retrograde. Perhaps someone gets angry with you because they misunderstood something you said. Or maybe your bank’s computer system glitched and you couldn’t get your mobile deposit to work. Or maybe your computer decided to blow up.

Do’s and Don’ts of Mercury Retrograde

Do be patient and try to be understanding. If there is a miscommunication, don’t be afraid to clarify your position or ask for a clarification.

Don’t panic (yet). Most things can be fixed with a little patience and work behind it, even if it is a complete inconvenience. Like having to take your deposit to the bank, or look for a new computer.

Plan ahead for technological hiccups and communication errors. This is a fancy way of saying it’s wise to always have a backup plan for every possible situation. If you rely on direct deposit, for example, then make sure you always have enough in savings to cover a missing deposit in case a computer hiccup happens. Or, if you rely on your computer for work, have a backup, or some money saved in the wings to replace your existing machine if possible.

Can I Magick My Way Out of a Mercury Retrograde?

I’d be lying if I told you that I hadn’t prayed to the Daemonic Divine once or twice in my life asking for a quick resolution to a communication or technology problem. Your Matron/Patron is always a good choice to connect with to help you with day-to-day life problems. But specifically for Mercury Retrogrades, my go to here is Lucifer. A burnt request or quick, “Hey, I could use a hand or some wisdom here” would not be out of order to help you weather a bad situation.

The key to surviving any huge technology fuck-up or blow out due to a miscommunication is a lot of deep breathing, patience, and clear thinking. Once you’ve had time to think the problem over, get the ball rolling to fix the issue. Sometimes you can have the issue fixed in minutes or hours. But other times, shit goes down on a weekend and you have no choice but to wait until Monday. In cases like that, leave a message, relax, ground yourself, wait for the next 24-48 hours, and then take the next step as needed. A clear head and thoughtful action can solve almost any problem.

Astrologers will often recommend you don’t sign contracts, don’t buy new technology, don’t make any important decisions, and use Mercury Retrogrades to reflect, edit, and plan. This is not always possible. In cases where you have no choice but to act, act while asking blessings of the divine and make sure you’ve read all the fine print.

The Fool: A Card for a New Season

The Fool card is a powerful symbol in the deck, one that reveals vast amounts of insight into how life’s journey can unfold. Delve into this ancient art to uncover its wisdom and find direction for your own path.

Introduction to the Fool Card

The Fool card is a prominent feature of the tarot and is often depicted as a young traveler on a journey, carrying a knapsack and a white flower while accompanied by a faithful dog. It signifies the beginning of a new adventure or a fresh start in life. The Fool card reflects a time of innocence, newness, and unbridled creativity. It is the card of pure potential and untapped energy, urging the seeker to be open to new experiences and have faith in the universe.

In a tarot reading, the Fool card may represent taking a leap of faith, being spontaneous and carefree, having trust in oneself, and embracing the unknown journey. Conversely, it could also symbolize recklessness, being overly naive and impulsive, or not taking enough responsibility.

History of the Fool Card

The Fool card is commonly known as the first card in the tarot deck, and its origin dates back to the 15th century. The card was originally called “the jester” or “the merry-making” card and was part of a popular Italian card game called Tarocchi. In the game, the jester card was the highest trump card, and players who held it could use it to win any trick.

Over time, the jester card evolved into the Fool card, which featured a young man carrying a stick and a small bundle, walking off a cliff with a dog barking at his heels. The image represents the Fool’s journey through life’s ups and downs, and the dog symbolizes instincts and divine inspiration that guides him.

Today, the Fool card is an integral part of the tarot and is associated with new beginnings, taking risks, and trusting the universe. It is often seen as a reminder to embrace freedom, take chances, and trust in the journey of life.

Fun Fact: In some early tarot decks, the Fool card was unnumbered, indicating its association with the concept of zero, or infinite possibility.

Different Interpretations of the Fool Card

The Fool card in the Tarot is one of the most iconic and complex cards, with multiple interpretations that can be influenced by various factors such as the Tarot deck type and the spread being used.

Some interpretations of The Fool card include:

  • New beginnings, opportunities, and adventures
  • Taking risks, being spontaneous, and embracing uncertainty
  • Innocence, freedom, and living in the present moment
  • Naivety, foolishness, and lack of direction or preparation
  • Letting go, detachment, and embracing the journey rather than the destination

It’s worth noting that the imagery, symbolism, and position of The Fool card in the spread can affect its interpretation. For example, The Fool card at the beginning of the spread may indicate a new journey, while in the middle, it may suggest a need for change or a challenge to overcome.

Pro Tip: Trust your intuition when interpreting The Fool card and experiment with different interpretations to find the one that resonates with you.

Symbolism of the Fool Card

The image of a jester-like figure with a bag on a stick and a dog by his side represents the idea of embarking on a journey with only the bare essentials and a sense of adventure.

The symbolism of The Fool Card also carries a warning that risks and leaps of faith should not be taken lightly, as they may have unintended consequences if not considered carefully.

The card is a reminder to approach new experiences with an open mind, humility and an eagerness to learn from life’s lessons, whatever they may be.

The Fool Card’s meaning may also differ when combined with other cards in a Tarot spread, varying from a carefree spirit to a warning against recklessness.

Tips for Working with the Fool Card

In Tarot, The Fool card is one of the most mysterious cards and holds great significance. Here are some tips to work with The Fool card:

Do not be afraid of The Fool card, as it does not always represent foolishness, but rather new beginnings, out-of-the-box thinking, and adventure.

Look beyond the traditional illustration of a young, carefree wanderer and explore the depth of its meaning and symbolism.

Embrace the unknown, trust your instincts, and allow yourself to take risks and leap forward, just like The Fool does in the card.

Use The Fool card as a reminder to approach life with a childlike curiosity, an open mind and an eagerness to learn and explore.

Pro tip: The Fool card can be a powerful tool for self-discovery, creativity, and personal growth if you let go of your fears, embrace the unconventional and step into the unknown.


In conclusion, the Fool card in the Tarot represents new beginnings, opportunities, and taking risks. It encourages us to embrace our curiosity, trust our intuition, and be open to unexpected twists and turns in life.

The appearance of the Fool card in a reading can also suggest the need to let go of fear, doubt, or negative self-talk and approach our goals with a sense of lightheartedness and playfulness. While the Fool can signify naivete and recklessness, it ultimately invites us to step outside of our comfort zones and explore uncharted territory.

Lucifer: Magick for New Beginnings

I hope you all had a beautiful Rite to Lucifer at the Spring Equinox. I wasn’t sure what kind of article I should write this month, and hence the reason everything from my article to my newsletter is late. But then you don’t want me in your inbox every other day giving you crazy ideas, right?

Spring is a great time to do your magickal housecleaning chores like banishing negativity, reinforcing wards, and cleaning and blessing altars and tools. But it’s also a great time for Magick for New Beginnings. With the assistance of Lucifer, of course. Lucifer can bring new perspectives, enlightening insight, and even creative inspiration when coupled with more fiery/watery spirits.

So, if you’re looking for a fresh start or feeling stuck – read on to discover some magick that can help you manifest your desires and create new beginnings. Through these simple, yet powerful simple workings of magick, you can tap into the natural divine energies to open up a world of opportunity.

Drawing New Opportunities

Magick for new beginnings can help you to draw new opportunities into your life by helping you to make the conscious decision to open yourself up to new possibilities in any area of your life. It can help take your career or personal life in the direction you have been dreaming of. Whether you are looking for a lucky break, a way to gain recognition, or just a bit of fitness and luck in your favor, spells for opportunity are effective tools that can bring an abundance of potential into your reality.

We all know that the key to magick lies in intent. So, before casting any spell or doing any magickal work, it is important to focus on exactly what outcome you would like as this will determine the kind of energy you’re putting into your ritual. While knowing the exact type of opportunity you want will make the magick manifest more quickly, in this instance it may behoove you to keep an open mind about which opportunities will come your way.

As I discuss in The Art of Creative Magick, you can create your own spells and rituals rather easily by using visualization and correspondences, such as the type of incense, oil/oleum, or herbs associated with the spirits you’re working with that also correspond with the types of opportunities you’re seeking to help amplify the influence during the work. But just in case you don’t want to take the time to create your own spell or ritual, I’ve created one for you here:

Lucifer Opportunity Draw

Take a piece of clear or smokey quartz into the temple with you. Invoke Lucifer through vibration until the energy in the room changes. Hold the crystal between your palms. Visualize the seal of Lucifer. Then say this (or the equivalent):

Lucifer, bring me opportunities for [insert any specifics], as well as opportunities I may have overlooked or missed. Help me open my mind and perspective. Enlighten me to what paths are available to me.

Now visualize the energy of Lucifer filling the piece of quartz until it feels strong. Thank the Daemon, and carry the quartz with you. Yes, it can be a pendant you wear.

Start a New Project

With Lucifer and spring, how about preparing yourself to start a new project or journey? It can help to work magick for inspiration and guidance. This type of magick encourages connection with the divine and finding joy in the work. It can also help to clear the mental pathways of resistance and open the mind up to creativity and fresh ideas. You can also work with multiple spirits with fire/water energy to drive additional inspiration.

Bring Inspiration & Guidance

This is really simple. While sitting in your studio or office, invoke Lucifer by intoning his Enn: Renich tasa uberace biasa icar Lucifer

until the energy in the room changes. You are also welcome to use your own invocation. Then simply state what you want to manifest, putting intent behind each word.

For example, if you’re starting on a creative project, try affirming “I am creative and new ideas flow freely from me.” Alternatively, if you’re starting something business-related, say “I have the drive and dedication needed to complete this project.” Take a deep breath – throw that intention out into the world and state very clearly, “By Lucifer, it is done.” You may feel a rush of energy or power as you say this, and this is good. Now, get on with your work! But in chair, hands on keyboard. Paint on canvas. You and your musical instrument in studio – etc… Basically, follow through and do your work! Inspiration will come.

Launch Something New

Maybe you don’t need opportunity or inspiration. Maybe you’ve already done the thing or created the art and now you’re ready to launch it. You want all eyes on the project. Remember that this kind of magick, depending on the spirits you work with, can also attract haters – so plan for that.

But if you’re ready for everyone to start paying attention for a successful launch, try this on for size:

Lucifer’s Launch Plan

You’re going to need a physical copy or representation of thing you’re launching. You’ll need the sigil of Lucifer. You’ll need some Lucifer Oleum.

Invoke Lucifer into the ritual space. Anoint a physical copy of the thing, even if it’s just a piece of paper with your project logo or branding on it, with the Oleum of Lucifer. Visualize and direct energy toward creating an abundance of buyers, customers, viewers, etc. Visualize buyers, clients and customers coming to you. Then say, “By Lucifer, it is done.”

You can also add Sorath to this ritual work, but remember that while Sorath shines a bright spot of sunlight onto anything, you can get burnt.

Enjoy your spring magickal work, and may Lucifer light your way!

The Evil Eye

I have been getting a great deal of email about “being cursed” lately, so I thought I’d write some articles about various types of curses to help people uncurse themselves. Some of these articles will also be included in the forthcoming Daemonolater’s Guide to Protection & Psychic Self-Defense. The evil eye is one of those “curses” that people often feel like they’ve been the target of.

Have you ever been afflicted with bad luck, despite all your attempts to ward it off? If so, some folks would say you may be suffering from the Evil Eye.

What is the Evil Eye?

The Evil Eye is basically where the castor causes harm to others through their concentrated energy of jealousy, anger, and/or hatred. This also means that anyone can cast the Evil Eye on someone else — it doesn’t have to be a witch or magician. In many parts of the world, it is still feared and respected as a method capable of inflicting harm on its victims. I would even venture to say that the Evil Eye is the most COMMON type of curse people are afflicted by.

The effects of the Evil Eye can vary depending on who casts it and why they cast it. Some people suggest that these effects could include:

  • Physical symptoms such as headaches, chills, tiredness, uneasiness, dizziness, nausea and loss of appetite;
  • Psychological symptoms such as fearfulness or anxiety; and
  • Circumstantial problems such as accidents or setbacks in business or relationships.

Even though no two people fully experience the same thing when cursed with the Evil Eye, it is said that it could have serious long-term consequences that should never be ignored.

Fortunately, there are ways to protect oneself against the sinister power of the Evil Eye. Superstitions around what releases positive energy include:

  • Wearing jewelry like talismans or charms featuring good luck symbols like hamsa hands;
  • Carrying crystals like tigers eye for protection;
  • Washing one’s face with lemon water during times when negative energy is likely present;
  • Making offerings to deities that specialize in thwarting evil curses;
  • Chanting calming mantras;
  • Placing bells near doorways to chase away negative spirits;
  • Burning incense daily for purification;
  • Keeping flowers nearby for their healing powers; and
  • Meditating regularly on letting go of fear if ever under attack by jealous forces.

All of these simple steps can lead towards a safer life free from possible malicious attacks from haters – even if you don’t know these people personally.

Some Daemons to Help Release the Evil Eye:

Your Matron or Patron is always a good source of protection regardless the type of curse allegedly cast upon you. However, you can also work with Agaliarept, Amducius, Asmoday, Bathin, Focalor (my personal favorite), Halphas, Malphas, Sabnock (another of my favorites), Seere, Tezrian, and Vepar to name a few. All of these Daemonic forces are great for protection.

But how do you know if the evil eye has *actually* been cast in your direction?

Well, that’s not always an easy answer, so when you feel like something is wrong, it can never hurt to do a negativity banishing or protection. I recommend all magicians have pre-emptive wards and protections in place, as well as a regular banishment of negativity schedule.

But let’s take a moment to discuss some symptoms, or at least a few signs that this may have taken place. Many people feel they have been cursed when they experience unexplained illness or bad luck in life, particularly if these negative events do not seem to resolve – even after good decisions have been made and continue to be made. Other signs of being affected by the evil eye may include a sudden decrease in money or resources, feeling fatigued despite getting adequate rest as well as an unexplainable fear that something bad is about to happen. Now, don’t be quick to dismiss anxiety or panic disorder as potential causes of how you’re feeling – or the fact that maybe you’re coming down with a cold so your body is feeling fatigue because it’s fighting a virus. Normal, everyday illness is just life — not necessarily a curse.

I guess the question you need to ask yourself is whether or not you have a hater. Is someone jealous of you? Angry with you? Are they putting a lot of effort into slandering or libeling you to whoever will listen? Are they going out of their way to hate on you? Have you taken up free rental space in their head? If yes, that can sometimes be all it takes for any random person to unleash the evil eye on you. And since this is a common thing in our modern time – chances are there’s someone out there sending negative energy your way.

The upside of this is that various cultures the world over have charms for warding the evil eye and there are plenty of protection spells and wards that catch all that nasty energy from your haters and catapult it right back at them, burn it up, or alchemize it into good luck for you and yours. For some spells/rituals along these lines, you really want the book The Preeminent Curse (a cheaper paperback version is available to my Newsletter Subscribers). The Daemonolater’s Guide to Protection and Psychic Self-Defense is slated for release later this year.

Some rather basic magick to ward against this kind of negativity can include sprinkling sea salt around one’s home (especially outside doorways), or asperging with rosemary sprigs dipped in salted water. Some also believe that carrying crystals/stones such as quartz or lapis lazuli can further protect one from the negativity of others.

How to Make a Charm Against the Evil Eye

One way to thwart the effects of the Evil Eye is to create a charm by using blue eye beads (or black eye beads) or the Hamsa Hand, which is an open palm image resembling a hand with three fingers pointing up. The symbol has been used as a sign of protection throughout many cultures, including Mediterranean and Middle Eastern countries. The Hamsa Hand can be used alone or with the blue or black eye beads. To use this charm in breaking off its curse, one can attach eye beads around the Hamsa Hand – this will act as your defensive shield against any negative energy that may come your way.

Or, you can just make a charm by adding a blue or black eye bead to a necklace or bracelet. Or a Hamsa hand. Your choice. If the charm breaks – it is said that it thwarted the evil eye.

Another method I’ve seen involves tying seven knots into a red cord or thread while chanting prayers to protection Daemons before knotting each one. This red thread should be worn around your neck or wrist (or kept in a pocket or purse) as your own personal protection while out in public or spaces where you could potentially come into contact with someone who wishes you harm. Additionally, people often place these symbols in their homes above doorways for additional protection against any unwanted attention coming their way. Kind of like some people will place protection sigils or even Daemonic sigils of protectorate Daemons above their doorways.

What about Internet Protection?

For what it’s worth you could simply post pictures of protective sigils or amulets to your social media spaces, and perform blessings over your phone, computer, or tablet on a regular basis to guard yourself from negativity entering your space via the internet.
