On the cafe chat,we were having a discussion and our thoughts wandered off to the topic of gypsies and their magic.After all,Tarot cards,which many of us use,are said to be a tradition coming from gypsies.
I live in a country with many many Romani folk,and quite a few of them are very scary individuals,muggers,bullies,etc. though I have known those belonging to the group that show potential for incredible greatness.
Romani are often associated with having magic.And truth be told,they do.
The first Romani started as members of the Pariah caste in India,deemed untouchable.Some of these people didn’t fit into any caste,because they belonged to one of either three groups.
Performers(Asia has a complicated relationship with the performing arts),Thieves(Romani are to this day associated with theft a lot),and Sorcerers.
As such these people seem to be conditioned to perform some magic.I mentioned how an old lady(who as far as I know is a powerful unconscious witch),gave me the evil eye.I know this because I could see it coming at me,in my astral sight,and I had to stop the blast in mid-air,drain it of energy,and banish of negativity.
The evil eye deserves a separate thread,suffice to say,I know its efficacy.I doubt one ‘‘why don’t you give me money’’ glare-type evil eye is enough to do much damage,but one pure envy,and pure hatred driven evil eye,of emotions bottled for years,can kill someone.This is something I know from experience.
Along with this,and tarot,there’s also spoon divination.While a druid tradition,I know various conscious magician gypsies who use it.In fact,their system is very much a mixture of everything they’ve layed their hands on,folklore,and a sort of Chaos Magic.
I believe Raymond Buckland has a book on that.Also,I know a gypsy love spell from a source of mine.Now,I’ve never tested this spell,and cannot vouch for its efficacy,but I will post it below nonetheless.
We are curious,though,what does everyone know of their magic?
I know that they can also be very good vampires,but I’ll talk more on that on some other occasion.
Anyone here know anything about gypsy witchcraft that they’d like to share?
