Okay, so here’s a quick lesson for folks reading this (including you Beach5) to learn from. If you’re hiring someone to cast a spell, and they tell you something like “well the target is casting magick to block my shit” …there is a 95% that they are lying. You need to do a bit of deductive reasoning sometimes with stuff like this and not just take peoples word on places like etsy.
The vast vast vast vast majority of people out here in the world are not occultists. The odds that your targets in any situation are casting any sort of magick against you is honestly close to zero percent. There are many more reasons that I would consider first before even entertaining the idea of this being the reason for my failure. Unless you live in some witches coven, or you only date 33 degree masonic lodge members, assuming that your magick failed because your target casted a spell is a bit silly imo. The motive for this etsy spellcaster to say that would be to give themselves cover for the fact that they actually are not good magicians at all, so they use that very convenient excuse whenever they can.
The other thing to consider is that its not an easy feat to divine exactly what magickal spell a target cast without actually being there in the room. If this magician you hired is so good that they are able to tell you this detailed information, I find it curious that after half a year of time, they haven’t been able to break through this supposed spell yet. This isn’t the most complex request in the world, and although magick does sometimes take time, a request as straightforward as this shouldn’t take quite this much time for a magician experienced enough to sell their services to deliver on. My guess is that whoever it is, isn’t actually very good and so they’ve resorted to lying to you in the hopes that you eventually drop them and move on to someone else.
