Halloween Spotlight

Cast a spell or two

Brooms, cauldrons and the sound of cackling, along with the sight of a black cat trailing away — indeed a familiar imaginary figure pops up: someone who has the power to alter hearts, snatch away precious items and sometimes, help the hero in need, for a price that is!

Would you not want some 'practical magick' like this in your life? Order your broom to sweep up last night's mess, a flick of your wand to sort out all your chores or maybe a drop of soothing potion for your ever troubled bestie — what a life! But alas, other than the sole purpose of scaring the children to bed, the cloaked figures in dark garbs and the pointed hats have no purpose. 

You would think a spell circle or two in the right side of the last quarter of the moon could at least guarantee a light traffic on your way to work! Again, no such luck… probably because you used your least favourite shade of nail polish to draw the signs instead of the required blood sacrifice of the black chicken born in Mars Retrograde. Hey we get it; you have to make do with what you have at hand.

What you would not do a for a modern spell or two, even just a tiny one to give you eight hours of sleep when you have to get up at seven in the morning and it's already reaching the witching hour on your clock. If only!

As Halloween is tomorrow, your spells and chants and potions may not work (for the tenth time), but trust in yourself for the fun you will have!
