Racism is COMPLICATED! Which is why, understandably, talking about racism is not an easy task. It’s hard to know how to approach the subject no matter who you are. So today on Decoded we’re talking about 5 things everyone should know about racism. A bit of a “Racism 101,” if you will. Think we missed anything? Discuss your thoughts in the comments!
Someone has really fucked you over and you’ve decided all of the ordinary routes of justice are not gonna cut it. But where do you start?
Step 1: Commit to cursing.
It may sound obvious but cursing is a big deal. Its generally a risky spell to conduct in any paradigm you look at, and all morals aside, its laborious and energy intensive. If you feel iffy about cursing, the time to bail is now. (There are still alternatives to cursing if you want to do something about this person in your life. I recommendbinding.)
Step 2: Find a curse that fits the crime.
Please don’t do a death curse on someone who cut you off while driving (though I feel you). If you do believe in returning energy or similar ethics about the universe, this is a good way to minimize risk.
Good places to look for curses and cursing ideas can be found throughout the witch community. Theseare two of my favorite tumblr directories to look through when searching for a curse. Sometimes curses are specific and state which crime they are punishment for, which is a simple way for beginners to follow this guideline.
Step 3: Find a taglock for your target.
Curses need a direction and a taglock in order to hit the right person. This could be an item of theres, their signature, a picture of them, or even just their full name written out on a piece of paper. These are only suggestions, sometimes an integral part of cursing is getting creative with your taglock. Just give the universe a good way to find your intended person.
Along this same thought, here is a piece on avoiding misfired curses.
Step 4: Finalize your plan for conducting the curse.
Even if you use a curse 100% written by someone else, its important to mentally walk through exactly how it will be carried out. This is not the time to wing it. Curses are stressful and the best way to avoid accidents (which can have serious consequences) is to be detailed in how it will unfold.
If you are tweaking a spell, you should double check that any ingredients you’re swapping out have the same associations so you get the same result. Similarly, make sure that changed actions will have the desired effect. If you’re making your own spell, verify that all people and intents are represented.
In all cases, make sure that what you’re doing is safe. Go on WebMD and check that the herbs you’re using aren’t dangerous with any health conditions you may have. If you’re doing blood magic, do it safely. Be smart, use your brain.
Step 5: Put in a failsafe.
Curses are not meant to last forever and trying to craft something to last that long will drain you of energy for a very long time. Put at the end of your spell that the curse will last a definite amount of time (i.e. six months) or will last until a certain action has occurred.
Step 6: Gather materials and conduct the curse.
Get everything together, set up the space. Its essential to clear the mind and cleanse before a ritual to set yourself up for success. Unless you hate yourself, you’re going to want to purify and protect you and your space.
When you feel grounded, go on and do the spell. Go slow, be diligent. You can do this (especially because you’ve already mentally gone through all the steps).
Step 7: Aftercare.
Cursing is a lot for most witches, from newbies to experienced spell-casters. Do something restful and brings you back to center. If you’re looking for a simple spell to accomplish this, one can be found here. Other places to look into magical self care can be found here. Don’t skimp on this step, you need time to rest and regain your magical energy. You don’t want a curse effecting the rest of your magic.
Now go out and be the wicked witch you always wanted to be!
you all are so eager to defend good bisexuals who have their hearts shaking and who are so organized about their feelings and who have dated the same number of guys and gals and are the most monogamous that you’ll step over the girls who kiss each other at parties because society’s told them that’s the only way to be and the ones who are too promiscuous for your liking and the polyam bis. you’ll target bi women of color and trans women who don’t fit what your image of a bi person “ought to look like,” mentally ill bi ppl who fit every c**zy stereotype you look for in us, you’ll call aro and ace bis fake, and honestly like. stop. we are just as worthy.
A conjunction is an angle of 0°, this means that the two planets or points involved were in one line as seen from the earth. Their energies merge together, they are blended. One planetary theme is involuntarily linked with the other, they become an inseperable unit. Expressing one psychological aspect without the other is almost impossible, because they are linked in and intricate way. That is why the conjunction can be both inharmonic or harmonic, depending on the planets involved; some work well together, others - not so much.
An opposition is an angle of 180°, which indicates that the points forming this aspect are facing each other, opposite of each other. Although this does create a conflict, a constant back and forth of opposites that seem to not go together, the scale that dips from one side to another can eventually find a balance. This is still a big challenge, though, and that’s why it is usually considered a inharmonic aspect.
A square is an angle of 90° and considered inharmonic. Planets that form this aspect together are usually at complete cross-purpose and their themes are really hard to combine, because they want completely different things and frequently butt heads. It’s like two cars driving into a cross-street in a 90° angle to each other and then crashing because they didn’t see each other. These planets themes are very hard to combine and they usually show as painful experiences and feelings.
A trine is an angle of 120° that usually happens between signs of the same element. This indicates things that come very naturally and easily, they’re a talent you’re born with. The planets energies flow harmoniously together and the benefits can be used easily. It comes so naturally, that people often aren’t aware of these strengths and talents and that they aren’t used as much and as constructively as they could be.
A sextile is an angle of 60° that usually occurs between two planets of the same polarity but differrent elements. This means that there is creative and positive potential slumbering that can either be used or not. Its a harmonious aspect like the trine, but usually less strong and not as obvious and evident.
