i-cast-thee-out

A Spell to Increase One’s Beauty

Ancient Asiatic Incantation


To increase one’s beauty and thereby increase one’s chances of finding love, recite to the Gods:

The Aarthi, that Demon that is causing my ugliness, I cast thee out. Vauna, Mitra, remove a perceived lack of grace. Aryaman, protect my hands. Savitr, banish all ugliness! Let all unwelcome aspects of mind, body, and spirit disappear. Let me be happy, as it was why I was created.  Drive away even the smallest blemish.

Casting the Circle

This is a step by step post on how I’ve learned to cast my circle thus far in my practice. It is not the only way to do it, but it has served me well.
I did NOT write this myself, I am utilizing a format I found on the web many months ago. I am simply sharing what has worked for me! It’s a bit non-denominational, so it should work for any witch, Wiccan or not. Feel free to customize to your personal workings.

  1. Clear your Space. Clear the area both physically and psychically: Sweep the area with your besom from east to west. You may also choose to scatter drops of witch-hazel, or salt water to purify your space.
  2. Draw the Circle. Identify the boundaries. You can do this with a cord, stones, or chalk -as I do. Your circle should be as wide as you are tall.
  3. Set the Altar. Gather your articles at an altar in the center of the circle, or in the north. Either way, your altar should face north.
  4. Set your Candles. Place your candles at the cardinal points of the compass. Walk the interior of your circle, lighting candles and/or scattering salt as you go. Recite the following:

    “Bright blessings o creatures of Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. I cast out from thee all impurities and negative influences.So mote it be." 

  5. Walk thrice around the circle saying:

    "Cast the circle thrice to keep evil out.”

  6. State your Intention. Kneel at your altar and state the reason you are casting the circle, then recite:

    “I conjure thee, o circle of power, That thou beest a meeting place of love, and joy, and truth. Be a shield against all wickedness and evil. A boundary between men and the realms of the mighty ones. A rampart and protection that shall preserve an contain the power we raise within thee.”

  7. Invoke the Powers. Invoke the elements and deities that you wish to work with. Call them to the objects that represent them within your circle.
  8. Cast your Works. Cast your spells and rites, and pay respect to the powers that you have invoked. At this time, you may choose to make an offering. 
  9. Closing. To close your circle, cast out the powers that you invoked in reverse, and at the end break the boundary. 

The Faith Healer

“And with this righteous hand, demons, I cast thee out!”

Reverend Pip Popoff pressed his hand down on the forehead of the elderly woman before pushing her back, causing her to briefly trip over herself. “My arthritis is gone.” She cried out, “it’s a miracle, everyone, God bless Mr. Popoff.”

The audience cheered, eagerly eating up the bullshit laid in front of them. I sighed, trapped in line along with the rest of the idiots. It was bad enough when my mother decided to raid my browser history, now I was being force to participate in the con of this lunatic in order to rid me of my “demons”. I didn’t care, just let the man do his stupid ritual and I can go home.

Popoff adjusted his microphone before heaving me onto the stage with a heavy grunt. He was an old man, wearing a tight tweedy suit and speaking with a fake southern accent. In his eyes were pupils of an almost solid blackness.

“I see this young fellow been doing the Devil’s handshake ain’t that right?” He yelled. The audience laughed. “Don’t worry, kid.” Popoff spoke, “the light will heal you. With this righteous hand, demons, I cast thee out!” The minute he placed his hand on my head, I could feel a great pain shoot through my body as if my flesh was being torn away.

It was like a dream, I was floating above the scene, having a clear view of Popoff and… myself. “Thank you, sir.” I hear my body say, “I feel absolutely reborn.” The crowd cheered.

I tried to yell out but couldn’t, helplessly trapped in the spectral void. My body turned towards me, its eyes now bearing the same darken pupils. It gave a sly wink before walking off stage and joining my mother.
