Black magick alway seems to put me in a box. I like to leave my options open. On top of that. Today was great news. Actually yesterday. I said "today" was a dawn of a new day. I felt it coming and now it is leaving, and it's black magick apparently. So Saturn, so constricting: black magick. Does it cost? Is it as selfish as the number nine? Is this why I ring my bell nine times before opening up a ritual for a curse?
Black magick is good once in a while, when the time comes. I know what it's like to feel like I am surrounded with an energy of Saturn all the time. It isn't fun.
Family, brotherhood, your sisterhood is the best love you'll get to kick the urge to spurge curses. I've had times, and many times, where I just wanted to destroy my enemies. If I take one step forward by letting my emotion decide for itself, then I lost. You think about it, you're against practically the whole world, because there are plenty of insubordinate word-mongers and evil-eye lookers to go against.
Like I said, once in a while, and that once in a while (for me) is to keep an asset sharp.
Interestingly enough. This is going off topic, but deciding what curse to choose I think has to do with one's emotional state. For instance, if you're furiously mad at a target, then it's best to do metallic magick (which is practically the essence of practical spirit power at its finest). If you're tired of it all, but moderately angry, and still refined/collected, then maybe a seven day hex will do the trick; as opposed to, one mean metallic curse. I am just talking practicality here.
Just wanted to put that thought out there: what type of magick may work best?
