🪆 Weekly Witchy CHALLENGE - Taglocks & Tokens

I use to have a real fancy sewing machine. I sewed a lot when I was younger. I made tons of Barbie clothes for my daughters and made several tops for myself my achy body can’t handle all the sewing I use to do so just got me a very simple machine for sewing witchy things.

Im not sure if this falls under tokens as its something i wear not carry and not specifically spell related. But i have been continueing to wear the colours associsted to each day while at home to draw on the energy not only of that corresponding colour but the day itself. Ie monday ( light blue as dont have white or silver top) for the moon, tuesday red singlet, wednesday blue or purple singlet or tshirt, thursday green, fridsy pink, Saturday black, sunday yellow or even orange. And as i put the top on i am drawing on that intention and remembering whst energy im connecting to. Its a simple way to connect to practice daily and to draw on energies of the days…and gelps me keep track of ehat day up to lol

CHALLENGE ENTRY AND WARNING-GREY MAGIC INVOLVED HERE

I hesitated to join this one since what I have used a taglock for is controversial with some. I suppose I should begin by saying I am not 100% light nor 100% dark. I embrace both sides of me and my magic does as well. I’m not posting this to debate whether you believe what I did was good/bad/dangerous or other. I ask none to cast magic the way I do and I expect none to “should” on me. I am not Wiccan and I don’t subscribe to the Wiccan Rede nor to anyone else’s code of ethics. I have my own.

So that being out of the way, and after much deliberation, I created a poppet and have cast a spell on someone so that everything they attempt goes wrong UNTIL they make things right with someone they are treating abominably.

The story in a nutshell: Former boss who was also a long time friend of myself and J. Myself and J were number 2 & 3 in the company. It is a small company. A a cost cutting measure, the former boss let myself and number 2 go with no notice. We never saw it coming. J had been there 20 years, myself 17 years. It was traumatic but as the Universe does, both J and I landed in a much better place, better job, more money, better benefits-everything better. Both J and I had, at times in the past loaned money to former boss’s business because he was a dear friend and to keep it going. That is a long story I won’t bore you with. J, who was CFO, made sure my loan was paid back, but hers was still outstanding at the time of layoff.

J tried to work out payback plans with former boss who kept dodging her. Then, former boss, files a lawsuit against J as a tactic to avoid having to pay back the money. Allegations are so bogus. But of course, a lawsuit, even bogus, must be defended against. Former boss is probably hoping J won’t want to spend money defending.

Until former boss makes it right with J and makes her whole monetarily, my poppet remains in place. I add power to it every full moon as well as pins to up the discomfort level.

Nothing will go right for former boss, until he does right.

So, how does a taglock apply? I didn’t have anything as personal as hair or toenail clippings and no way to get them given how things are. I did some research and after poking around a bit I decided to use a photo that I took of him. I don’t think it’s as strong as if I had something more personal. But this is my first taglock and I’m giving it a go and hoping for the best.

For those of you I made uncomfortable with this post, I apologize.

Challenge entry- the gold candle is where I put my taglock I did a spell for transformation and I put drops of my blood in the incantations that I etched into the candle. This was a spell I did last year I don’t use taglocks much :witch_pentacle: :infinite_roots:

Challenge Entry

I’m working on a Home Protection Spell. For my Tokens I’m painting rocks with Eye symbols from across many cultures. I also want to do a little polymer clay statuette. I did not get as far as I had hoped! (I work in a supermarket. I worked the 4 day holiday weekend AND a co-worker’s sister passed on Sunday so now I have overtime for a while. That’s OK.)

Nazar

The two Tokens I’ve finished so far are a set of Nazar, primarily Turkish. Protection from Evil Eye. Shown here with a Black Candle I’ll anoint with Cedarwood Oil. an Amber Necklace, and Myrrh Resin Incense.

Before:

I want to add an Eye of Horus, a Hamsa, an All Seeing Eye (Masonic?) etc. I do have a statuette planned as well.

Question: Is there a Celtic Eye of Protection? I haven’t come across one!

I’m seeing Eyes everywhere!

Book covers:

Jewelry, Charms, Tokens:

Last, but not least, this googly eyed Devilish mask my daughter made when she was 12. (She’ll be 38 in October) It has been protecting my apartments since 2008.:
