Banishing Spells

Banishing spells are much like binding spells in that their intention is to keep someone out of your life. A typical banishing spell will block or push someone away, unlike the binding spells that usually involve cords and knotwork. Not a huge difference, but it’s all a matter of preference I suppose.

Banishing spells should be in every witch’s Book of Shadows

Just remember the point here isn’t to cause anyone harm, just to block them out of your life.

Mirror Banishing

This spell directs someone’s vision back towards themselves, making you invisible to them. Not literally of course. For this spell, you will need:

  • A small mirror
  • Photo or drawing of the person
  • Piece of onyx
  • A pinch of mugwort

Place the mirror flat on a table, and sprinkle a pinch of mugwort in one spot on the face of the mirror. Lay the photo face-down on the mirror so the face of the person is over the mugwort. Repeat the following words:

You cannot see me
You cannot hear me
You do not want me
Now let me be

Now set the piece of onyx on top of the photo, also over where the persons face is (or as close as you can get since the photograph is lying upside down at this point). Repeat the words again, and leave the items on your altar to keep this person away. For the most powerful effect, cast this banishing spell on the night of the new moon.

Frozen in Time

Another classic banishing technique is to freeze someone to make them powerless against you. You just need:

  • A small piece of paper
  • A black pen
  • A small piece of black string
  • Water
  • A freezer

On the piece of paper, write the name of the person you want to banish. Tie a single knot in the middle of the string, and concentrate on why this person is bothering you when you tie it.

Fold the paper up, with the piece of string tucked in the middle. Add a few drops of water to the paper. Don’t soak it. You don’t want to obliterate the name inside. Just dampen it enough that it will freeze solid. Place the wet folded paper in the freezer and leave there until the situation is passed.

Banishing Jar Spell

Let someone be annoying or difficult in their own world, and stay away from you. Your supplies for this spell are:

  • A photo or drawing of the person
  • A pin
  • Vinegar
  • Salt
  • Jar with lid

If you are using a drawing, write the person’s name on it as well. Fold it over once, and secure it folded with the pin. Drop it into the jar. Repeat the following:

Sealed with a pin
In my jar, you stay in

Keep saying the words while you put a few drops of vinegar in the jar, and then a sprinkle of salt. Seal the lid tightly, and put the jar in a dark place.
