If you’re going to cast a hex, jinx, or curse of any kind take precautions regarding yourself.
You may want to do this by:
- Cleansing yourself pre and post casting.
- Protecting yourself pre and post casting.
- Have a reversal or curse removal method (a spell, ritual, etc.) on hand or in your grimoire/BoS/notes – just in case.
Both cleansing and protecting can be done in any way you see fit, e.g., a cleansing bath [an example of an all-purpose cleansing bath], a sachet carried on your person; a small ritual or spell; by using/anointing yourself/your tools with an oil; you can cast a circle; enchant jewellery or wear an amulet/talisman with the required properties.
But why should I do this?
Curses are a magick in a category of their own, but that does not mean they are exempt from the regular magickal fuckery.
By that, I mean that curses can backfire, and they can go wrong.
I’m not saying that they will certainly go horribly wrong, but in this instance it is always better to be safe than it is to be sorry.
