Here's a spell design to put an end to gossip and halt the spread of rumors. To perform this spell you will need:
- Black Candle
Directions: Begin by flipping the candle (that is, cut off the tip turn it upside down and carve a new tip out of the bottom) and then carving the names of the gossipers on the candle. If there are too many names or you'd simply like to be more comprehensive you can simply write "everyone gossiping about [name/situation]".
Anoint the candle with oil, and place it in a holder. Sprinkle the salt, cloves and alum in a circle around the candle. When you are done, ground and center. Imagine yourself standing in a circle of power. Hold your hands over the candle and raise energy from all around yourself. Imagine the energy gathering above your head in the form of a ball of white light. Mentally move that energy down through your arms and out of your fingers into the candle as you chant the following spell three times:
Gossip directed at [name's] name,
no longer serves to defame;
those spiteful words now fade away,
til they're as gone as yesterday!
Imagine the candle now pulsing with the power that you have channeled from the spiritual realm into the world of man. Light the candle saying "so mote it be" and let the magick go to work.
