Some crap happened to us over the weekend. Nothing really that serious, just nasty. I posted about it elsewhere, and had a comment about how I shouldn't do anything about it, that Karma would sort it out, etc, etc... Then on another forum I am on, said poster asked the community "Is there a place for retaliation magic in Goddess Spirituality?

Nemesis, Erinyes, Durga, Kali, The Morrighan, Arianrhod all suggest to me that there is a place for this kind of magick and I personally think it is quite blinkered to feel that there aren't times and situations when action and response is required that perhaps isn't as "nice" as people would like it to be. The idea that this propagates misery, Badness, and all things horrible is very simplistic and doesn't take into account that sometimes Not Nice things should to be done. There is a reason why Revenge Is Best Served Cold. It means that it should be thought through, all pros and cons considered, all repercussions and consequences realised and then the decision is made whether to follow through.

I can do it, and I will do it if I have to.

I agree with a lot of what The Witch of Forest Grove
has to say about it.

To Sarah's reading list I would add "Utterly Wicked" by Dorothy Morrison. I haven't laid my hands on a copy yet, but I hope to eventually. I've always liked Dorothy's books. She's very practical and cuts straight to the point, which I like.

I'm on the fence about cursing. Have I done it? Yes. Did it work? Yes, even years on it seems to still be working. Did I suffer from it later on? Yes, to a degree. Being ever the Libra, I think it depends on the situation. Karma may well teach those in question a lesson one day but sometimes helping Karma along is in order. On the other hand, I would never want to do magic with a view to physical harm coming to someone. I'd prefer they be bitten in the ass, long and hard, which would hopefully serve as a wake up call to change their ways.
