This can be performed as it stands of with full ceremonial chalice preparation as used for your other philters, among which it may be grouped.
I place it here rather than with the others on account of the rarity of the herb itself, which though once commonly stocked by herbalists for its astringent properties, is now something of a rarity and, as such, only deserves mention among our quainter reminders of bygone days.
Pound or grind to powder the root of Potentilla tormentilla, repeating the name of the person you desire over and over as you do.
Then take a pinch of powder, and with it, either compose a philter in distilled water, or drop it into the person’s food, uttering these words as you do.
Tormentil, Tormentil, make [name] subject to my will.
Be he bound, or be he free, as my will, so mote it be!
Personally, I have never tried this spell, not ever having had the luck to obtain any tormentil.
There may still be some around in out-of-the-way herbalists. If you ever get the chance, buy some and try it.
It used to be a sorcery much attested to a century ago.
The Sator Spell
Here is an experiment of love which makes use of a simple written talisman to be carried by the person who wishes to be the object of desire. It is a spell which does not make use of the law of transmission, however, but rather acts as a “booster” on the deep mind of the supplicant.
For a change, this process borrows from Christian symbolism rather than the other way round.
However, you do not have to be of Christian persuasion to make use of it. It has been in existence long enough—nineteen centuries in fact— to gather round it a potency as a love spell quite independent of its early ecclesiastical origin.
The good use it has been put to down the years by practitioners of the craft is ample evidence of that.
The name of this particular piece of Magic is the Sator Spell.
The words of the charm itself probably derive from the words Pater noser and “A. O.” standing for Alpha and Omega, the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. Pater noster is the Latin for “our Father,” the first words of the so-called Lord’s
Prayer. “Alpha and Omega” is one of the many titles bestowed upon Jesus by the early Christians, meaning the “first and the last,” a reference to his attributed divinity.
These words were sometimes formed into an equal-armed cross, which symbol though pagan in origin, has been already mentioned, became a suitable stock on which to graft the newly arrived cult symbol, the Latin or cross of crucifixion. This emblem was then used as a code sign among early converts.
Thought for the day
Individually, the man of to-day is not strikingly superior in form or capacity to the man of five or ten thousand years ago. But he knows more, can achieve more, and is in that sense stronger than was his ancestors.
