A TO CONQUER THE LOVER WHO IS DESIRED
(AN OFFERING TO OCHUN)
[I've translated this Santerian spell from a Hispanic pulp
publication titled "Presagio", by Carlos Canet. There is no
clear publication date but "#172 & 173" of Year 9 were
published in 2000. Please note: the language may seem a bit
stilted and awkward, and sometimes the instructions are
somewhat incomplete, but I have translated them verbatim
from the Spanish, keeping the sense as much as possible.
You will need:
five cinnamon sticks,
three kinds of perfume,
the powders "Love Me A Lot" and "For Me,"
a picture of the loved person with his [or her] name and date of birth.
a bowl of water for making a bath or, better a stream of running water
[Note from cat: If you cannot find the Santeria powders
named, you can substitute the hoodoo powders Love Me and
Come to Me.]
Pull off the flower petals and toss them into the water,
throw in the three perfumes, five cinnamon sticks, a little
of the bees' honey, and the powders "Love Me A Lot" and "For
Me." Take enough of this water for three baths. Beginning on
a Saturday, use it in the bath for three consecutive days,
with the photo in front of the person bathing. The water can
be strained to clear the flower petals out, and between
baths and afterwards, the picture stays in the bedroom.
