Gypsy Love Magic

WARNING-DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME
Loves, I’m really excited about today’s article. Today we’ll be talking Gypsy Love Magic! As you may know, I’m working on a new novel, titled The Devil’s Elixir. The novel is a sequel to The Executioner, and it takes place in the same setting—the coast of the Black Sea in Romania. Leona, the heroine, is of gypsy descent. Since I originally come from the town where the story is set myself, I grew up among the gypsies, and I grew up with their magic. I watched people from the “high society” come secretly to a gypsy’s wretched basement, bringing pieces of clothing from the objects of their desire, and paying for the magic that would bring them said persons’ love.
How I ended up in a gypsy’s basement myself as a member of the same “high society”? Well, the path of life… The gypsy’s daughter was my best friend (which inspired the friendship between Alice and Leona in The Executioner).
The rituals per se are highly secret, and they require very thorough preparation. They can only be “stolen” by an apprentice, who assists a master in the performing of the master’s craft. I was there often enough… But, as the daughter of two scientists, I drew some unusual conclusions that we’ll be talking about in future articles.
Usually, the ritual involves fire, pieces of clothing, and blood. In most cases, the desired man/woman is to drink the blood (coming from the inquirer), which is slipped into their drink, be it coffee, tea or alcohol (needless to say, in water, things can get nasty). A special spell needs to be cast over the blood by a savvy spell-caster; without this ingredient, the ritual would be useless and have NO effect. But, against popular belief, the spell caster doesn’t need to be a witch or a sorcerer, every human has their own specific kind of energy that can be more or less suited for casting love spells; we’ll be talking more about this in a future article dealing with born talents, predispositions, and … superpowers.
Another widely spread technique among the gypsies is the voodoo love spells. Those usually involve puppets made of canvas, bound with the involved partners’ hair, fingernails or, again, blood. Again, well-mastered spells must be prepared and cast over the puppets. The problem with this type of magic is that this technique makes people slaves to each other in the best case; the love can be all-consuming and insane but, in the worst case, the object of your desire can lack will in the relationship, and they are simply dragged around like puppets indeed.
In order to win the love of their crush, people are often willing to resort even to this kind of (black) magic—which is highly dangerous, and which Leona Ignat, our heroine, does not resort to. But what if every person were born with a certain talent that, given the proper guidance, can turn into a superpower, making magic obsolete?
The Executioner is as much a love story as it is about Alice’s journey to discovering her own superpower (venusian power) and honing her skill. In The Devil’s Elixir, Leona will discover and hone her own. If you’re curious and want a sneak peak, the first two chapters of The Devil’s Elixir are available for you here (Chapter One) and here (Chapter Two). The Executioner is available in full on Amazon: The Executioner Part One and The Executioner Part Two. My third book,The Soul Trapper deals with a different superpower (hint in the title :)).
And there’s so much more to talk about! I’ll be back later in May with more articles about talents becoming superpowers, signs that he’s into you, and why do girls desire to be loved obsessively, almost “gothicly”?—the secret to Christian Grey’s and Edward Cullen’s massive success.
And since we’re talking love, let us escape and fantasize—no, visualize(higher chance that we will one day actually experience that kind of love/relationship)! How would you like to be loved? Sweetly, passionately, madly, deeply? Lay back and let yourself be carried by your innermost desires. Here is a choice of loads and loads and loads of FREE romance books—I’m sure that at least one of them will go straight to your heart, and nestle in there to one day sprout a love just like it.

What does your Tarot Card say about you?

Important areas connected to the psychology of love that I so love diving into (and from which my romance novels have been born) are symbolism, occultism and astrology. Based on them I created personality tests that will bring you closer to discovering yourself as a lover – not only how you love but also how you’re loved in return. This personality test will reveal something about the kind of love you ignite in others. Please read the question below and the five possible answers. As always, try to make your choice in a relaxed state, and from the gut. Send the neo-cortex on a break, and dive into your subconscious.

Which of the following objects would you choose if they were presented to you on a tray under the moonlight?

  1. An ancient scroll
  2. A silver cross
  3. A black and golden star
  4. A scepter
  5. A lily

Interpretation:

  1. You’re a Magician. You have more power than you imagine. A fascinating mind, a knower of the heart and an alchemist lie at the core of your personality. You have the ability to manipulate energy. While you cannot influence specific people, your aura of power and wisdom will attract attention.
  2. You’re a High Priest/ess. Psychic, secretive and influential, your powers are subversive and relentless. You can connect to your love interest on deep levels and, with the right experience and training, even cause dreams and an inescapable telepathic connection. But for everything there’s a price. Use your talents well.
  3. You’re Death. Yours is a demanding, transformational and consuming type of love. The kind of love you ignite in others is addictive, dark, draining and, while the intensity is through the roof and you have the power to make yourself unforgettable, chances are your love interest will run for their lives and burn the bridges behind them. You’re Joe Black.
  4. You’re an Empress/Emperor. You’re the very embodiment of femininity/masculinity. Fertility/Authority is what you inspire, and you’re likely to be considered perfect marriage material. Mature, reliable, nurturing and protective/loving, the kind of love you inspire is the committed kind. It may well be that, if your love interest doesn’t feel ready for a committed relationship at the moment, they won’t give in to your charms.
  5. You’re a Lover (the Lovers card). You embody temptation, sweetness, the scent of infinity and perfection wafting over from the sea. You offer and inspire devotion, and you hold the promise of healing. You’re the lover where a love interest will find healing. You’re the person whose skin smells like home, but the way to that may be paved with great challenges.

The last number of your Birth Year tells you the purpose of your life

They say the last number of your birth year is especially important. It favors one of the basic elements of Feng Shui that defines your destiny.

The five basic elements – Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water – tell us a lot about ourselves and the ultimate purpose of our individual lives. Astrologers think these elements have a strong influence on people’s character and the turns of their destinies. They determine the mental organization, habits and personal preferences.

What’s your birth year? The last number reveals something about you.

If the last number of the year is:

0 or 1, your element is Metal

2 or 3, your element is Water

4 or 5, your element is Wood

6 or 7, your element is Fire

8 or 9, your element is Earth

 

  1. METAL

You always help people and take care of your loved ones, but you never ask for help yourself. This kind of independent behavior makes your entourage respect you. You hate it whenever someone tries to nose in on your life or gives you unrequested advice.

Professionally, you’re ambitious and lucky in business. You desire and relish in a prosperous life. Paradoxically, even though you enjoy attention and the limelight, you also want to be left alone. It’s not a good idea for anyone to challenge you, because you’ll defeat them.

One of your weaknesses is a way too sharp sense of criticism, which can cause you trouble in relationship with other people. You ask too much of yourself and of your loved ones.

  1. WATER

You’re generally well-liked, and many would think you’re a nice person. You’re capable of using other people in very practical ways in order to reach your goals. You act with the fluidity of a river, making a mark on your surroundings with your inner strength and charming calm. You easily win people’s affection, which makes them willing to follow you.

You make people feel special by appreciating their unique talents, which is why you can work so well with people and do good business.

Your weakness is that you always try to make people like you, which may drive you to go to great lengths and even alter your personality. This can cause you to become indecisive, passive and depressed.

  1. WOOD

This is the symbol of growth and progress. As the time passes you become richer in experience and knowledge, and therefore more valuable like an old wine. Dynamic and active, you socialize easily, and you maintain a positive attitude toward life’s challenges.

Professionally, you’re a great organizer, and you can make plans on large scale. You’re capable of making good decisions because you care about the people you work with. People trust you. Your open mind and compassion make you an excellent friend and colleague.

You’re always looking for opportunities for growth and renewal. You understand and value people’s potential. You’re often overprotective towards your loved ones. To you, marriage and family matter greatly.

Your weakness is that you work excessively, but you’re still inclined to let others lead you. You need to become bolder, express yourself and show your worth.

  1. FIRE

This is the symbol of passion and action, fast movement, activity. You’re an enterprising person, adventurous, restless, competitive, strong. You like to laugh and look at life with optimism. Enthusiastic.

You may conquer many hearts thanks to your seductive and affectionate style. You live great passions.

Professionally, you possess leadership qualities, and you’re result-oriented. You’re impulsive and impatient.

People are attracted to you in a magnetic way, and you guide them through experiences that make their adrenaline surge. Your mind is always working, and you always have new ideas and intelligent solutions.

Your weakness is that you easily become stressed out, and you have low tolerance of frustration. You’re impatient, you want it all here and now, and you can easily fly in a rage if your needs aren’t met.

  1. EARTH

This is the symbol of stability, safety and trust. You’re a wise and patient person, perfectionist, prudent. A responsible character, you’re given to self-sacrifice in favor of other people.

In you people find great counsel and a haven because you have a serene perspective on things. Share your wisdom with others, and teach them to achieve the mental tranquility that you possess.

What leads you is logic, which reins over feelings in your case, and you plan your life in as much detail as possible. You don’t like surprises, and you desire full control over your destiny. Your calm and reserved demeanor make you attractive to the opposite sex.

Your weakness is that you don’t trust your intuition, and you question the possibility of making your dreams come true. You’re way too reliant on your logic, dependent on controlling all life situations, too afraid of the unknown and losing control. Try to get rid of the blockages in your mind.
