A powerful curse to bring ruin and turmoil to your enemy.
What You’ll Need:
A Jack of Spades playing card (this represents the target as a sort of poppet, and for the sake of the curse, the jack is gender-neutral)
A Peat Pot Planter (The peat pot is eco-friendly and more powerful for this particular curse, but a jar can also work)
Old Parsley, to represent financial ruin
1 Big, Rotting Strawberry, to represent romantic ruin
Rotting Banana or Carrot, to represent sexual ruin, if target has a penis, OR Rotting Peach or Red Apple, if target has a vulva (If you don’t know what genitalia the target has, use one of each)
Crushed Egg Shell Powder
1 Black candle
1 other candle: pink if target ids as female/transfemale/transfeminine, yellow if target ids as male/transmale/transmasculine, purple if target ids as agender/genderfluid/bigender/etc.
Legally obtained animal bone(s) (I recommend chicken bones, you can get them out of pieces of fried chicken, so they’re easily available and more importantly, LEGAL!)
(Optional) Cursing sigils
(Optional) A slice/half/whole rotting onion, to represent their health deteriorating
What to do:
-BEST DONE DURING A WANING CRESCENT MOON-
STEP 1: Place the peat pot down on your working space. Place the black candle above it and the other candle below it. Light both of the candles. (Be sure to practice fire safety!)
STEP 2: Take the Jack of Spades and write the targets name over the card, as big as you can. (It can be any name you knew them by, their full name, a nickname, their “witch name” if you’re cursing another witch, etc.)
STEP 3: Place the animal bone(s), egg shell powder, and old parsley in the peat pot. Next place the Jack of Spades in. (If you have any cursing sigils, add them here.) Then put in the rotting strawberry and the rotting banana/carrot/peach/red apple. (If you add the onion, do it here.) Sprinkle the black and cayenne pepper over all of it, saying:
“I call upon the forces of dark,
”fulfill the curse, I’ve done my part.
“My reasoning sound, my logic tight,
”bring [TARGET’S NAME] suffering on this night“
STEP 4: Cover the peat pot with another peat pot or a piece of another cut to fit as a lid. (You can draw cursing sigils all over the pot if you so choose to.) Bury it somewhere close, like your garden or backyard. Pour the storm/rain water over the burial site.
TO BREAK THE CURSE:
STEP 1: Dig up the spot where you planted the peat pot. Try to find what you can of the jar. If it’s been a while, parts of it will have started to decay. Try to find the Jack of Spades. Take it out and rebury the rest.
STEP 2: Cross out the eyes and the hand(s) on the card with a dark colored marker. DO NOT MARK OUT THE NAME OF YOUR TARGET!
STEP 3: Place the card into a fire-safe bowl, and sprinkle a little salt and a little sugar over it.
STEP 4: Light the card on fire and let it burn until it’s nothing but ash. While it’s burning, say the chant:
Today for lunch I made a stir fry with sesame oil, tofu, broccoli, red and yellow bell pepper, zucchini, carrot, red cabbage and mushrooms which was deliciousss and on the side I had whole grain bread with mashed avocadoooo
Mom made sure every layer of my rainbow cake was delicious: Red watermelon, orange carrots, yellow apple, green frilly kale, and purple radicchio—topped with four pretty origami stars, one for every one of my four years! I didn’t know where to start!!
One pot lentil stew 😍! This one had red lentils, potatoes, carrots, pumpkin, spices and drizzles of tahini 🎃🥕💛 Here’s the recipe!
Rinse red lentils until water is nearly clear, add into pot and cover generously with water (if it ends up being too little you can always add more as you go). Put the stove on medium to high heat but turn down as soon as your lentils start boiling. You can prep and add the following ingredients as your lentils boil:
Peel (if necessary) and chop potatoes, carrots and pumpkin - if those veggies aren’t in season, you don’t have them on hand or don’t like them you could also use different ones (cauliflower works great too!).
I found this incredible Asian food store last week and got a massive package of rice noodles 😍
