Weird. I'm making this post mainly to see if I get a notice like that.

Oh my GOD, this ALWAYS happens to threads that I start. People, we're suppose to be talking about LOVE SPELLS. What is all this nonsense about attacking religions and Scientology? Geez.

Right!  To help you un-hijack your thread:  Grin

Yes, love spells work.  The one I performed was to bring a love into my life, not aimed at any person, or even any type of person.  It worked, spectacularly well.  It changed my life forever; I still am unsure of all the implications and effects it has had on me, my past, and my future.

There is one incontrovertible lesson it taught me: all magick has a price, and I think the cost you pay is in proportion to that which you gain.

I definitely agree, as I have learned with other spells, like temporary glamories. By the way, your avatar is FIERCE!

I have a friend who just did one and I'm really curious to see how it's going to turn out. To her, she thinks he really does love her but he just doesn't "realize it."

I'm curious, have these persons told their respective S.O's that they had done spells like that prior to meeting? If so, to your knowledge, were the affected parties upset by that revelation?

I'm honestly not sure how I'd respond that sort of news, I'd like to say I'd be flattered and pleased that the person gave fate a kick in the pants so to speak but IDK...

My former SO told me that he used a love spell to bring my type personality/physical attributes to him and I found it weird--if not a little creepy.  I can see the reasoning behind it, but I think it is meant to be, it will happen.  Fate doesn't usually respond well to kicks in the pants. :p

I second this. Though I don't see anything personally wrong with a harmless love spell, I definitely think it's one of those things you probably could go without telling your partner. Ya know?

Spells that invite romance into one's life without any one particular in mind might work without any problems.  But if you cast a spell saying "I want This Person to love me with all hir heart," and it somehow works, then you have crossed into rather unethical territory at the very least.
I agree. That would be most unethical.   Spellwork for someone to understand their feelings for you or express their feelings could be work as long as you are not trying to alter the outcome.

See, I'd be more furious at having been kept in the dark than knowing about the spell. I can understand questionable decisions but anyone that I care about actively choosing to lie to me is a whole different story. Deliberate deception is unacceptable in my book. It implies the deciever understood that an action etc would not go over well so decided to do it anyway but lie to avoid the consequences. Most decisions can be arrived at via discussion etc. But a unilateral decision backed up by a lie is massively hurtful and destructive.

      I never tried putting a spell on another to put them under "my" influence. That said, I have begged the Gods and Goddesses many a time for their help in matters of love.   Tongue

There's a difference though, because putting it in the Gods and Goddesses hands not only takes a bit of pressure off, but it puts it in wiser hands. I sure as hell don't know everything, but I do know that if they will it, it will happen, and if they don't, then it won't. Either way, their will tends to be better in the long run than mine.


Well said.    Besides controling a specific person's feelings being just wrong in my opinion,  there is also the question of it being the right thing to happen at this time ?   The Gods may feel that we need to be a bit more prepared for a relationship or have some obstacle to overcome first.   Also, a love relationship that you created for yourself by a spell could certainly backfire and break your heart, so I would be very carefull in my wording and ask that it happen only if the Gods see fit.

If I am asking gods for help casting a spell I tend to assume that "only make this happen if you think it is a good idea" is assumed.  They're deities after all, it's not like they are going to do something they think is a bad idea just because I asked.

Uummm, no. I NEVER make assumptions when it comes to deities. The ones who have their hands in my life may just decide anything is a teaching moment.

'You asked for it, you got it!' would not be out of character for some.

Exactly!  That's why WHEN I ask, I have thought about it for a while and am VERY clear on what I'm asking for.  "Be careful what you wish for, you might get it!" A very good piece of advise, if you ask me. Wink
