If someone had asked me this question a year ago, I would have thought they had an overactive imagination. Global pandemics are the sort of thing that happen in movies and in books, right? Yet here we are in 2020 as I write this, and the majority of the world is in some form of lockdown as the COVID-19 virus sweeps the planet. The speed and ferocity of this potentially lethal virus has taken most people by surprise.
Yet for as much as we are all shut inside, unable to live anything like a normal life, life does go on. People still need to eat, to sleep, and to love.
For those lucky enough to be confined to their homes with their partner, it’s a difficult enough situation. For those who have been separated from their lover by isolation measures, it’s even harder.
But there’s another category of people who are also affected when it comes to their love life — those people who were already suffering because they were not with the person they desire even before the novel coronavirus interfered.
Being in love with someone who doesn’t feel the same way about you is bad enough. To then have to deal with being stuck at home, unable to do anything at all to pursue them, only makes the situation worse.
So to the question — is it okay to cast a love spell during a global pandemic? The answer, as is so often the case when it comes to the use of magic to attain love, depends on the person asking the question, and their circumstances. There are a number of things that must be taken into consideration.
The most obvious of these is that around half of all the people in the world are currently restricted in their movement. Limitations vary from one country or region to another. Personally I’m not allowed out of the house without first filling out a form, taking ID, and with a very good reason to provide to the authorities should a patrol stop me. Some places are more relaxed, others more strict. I’ve seen at least one country that has issued a shoot-on-sight order if anyone is seen outside when they shouldn’t be. It sounds like the plot of a movie, but sadly this is real life.
The limits on movement place an obvious potential restriction on the effectiveness of love spells. Whilst a spell itself won’t be affected, the ability for it to visibly manifest might be. If “Angela” asks me to cast a spell on “Bill”, and Bill is confined to his home, how will he show his newfound love for Angela?
Fortunately this kind of restriction is not as much of a problem as it would have been ten or twenty years ago. We all have phones and messaging systems, and even video calls are commonplace. In the history of humanity, it’s never been easier to make contact at a distance. So when Bill begins to feel the love for Angela and feels compelled to tell her how he feels, being on lockdown isn’t going to stop him.
What may be a problem is what happens next. If Bill cannot physically see Angela for an extended period of time, it’s possible he may begin to question his newfound feelings for her. He may start to wonder if they are just a side effect of being stuck at home and not real love.
Similarly, the fear brought about by this unique situation may have an impact on the effectiveness of any spell. To continue my example from above, Bill may be fearful that he, his family, or even Angela are at risk of dying from the Coronavirus.
Fear of death makes people act in unpredictable ways. This could work against the spell, or in its favor. It’s possible that the fear of life being curtailed early would push Bill to act more quickly on the love that the spell creates, leading to earlier and stronger manifestation. Or it might be that his fear makes him hunker down and avoid all contact with the outside world.
It’s obviously very difficult to predict how anyone would react in this situation without knowing them personally, or without perhaps getting a psychic reading done beforehand to judge their state of mind.
The worst case of all is if one of the parties involved in the spell should fall ill with the coronavirus. There are three parties involved in my love spells: 1) The person asking for the spell, the requestor. 2) The person the spell is being cast on, the target. 3) The person doing the casting, i.e me.
At this point I should disclose that I myself have already had the virus. Yes, it is as horrible as everyone says it is. I was lucky in a way in that I got it quite early on, and that I got a relatively mild form. Even that floored me for a good couple of weeks. My family all suffered at the same time, but I’m very happy to report that we all survived the ordeal and are fighting fit and healthy now.
Therefore in the case of me casting a spell, there is no danger of me falling ill with the virus during the process. That leaves the person the spell is being cast on, and the person who has requested the spell. Should either of them contract the virus, it will clearly affect the process.
If the target of the spell should fall sick, manifestation will de delayed. Depending on the severity of their symptoms and the length of their recovery time, it’s possible that a second casting will be necessary as they may be completely non-receptive to the effect of the spell at its peak power. This is all theoretical — to my knowledge I have not (yet) cast on someone who has tested positive for the virus. But it is a consideration.
If the person who requested the spell should fall ill, it would be less of a concern from the point of view of the spell. The worst thing that is likely to happen is that the target of the spell attempts to make contact but is unable to because the requestor is incapacitated or hospitalised. As that will be hopefully a temporary situation, it will only cause a delay to the end result, not prevent it altogether.
This is all speculation of course. No human being alive today has ever lived through a pandemic on this scale, so nobody has direct experience to draw on. All we can do is make educated guesses about how people are reacting and the potential effects of the virus.
So should you still request a love spell if you need one? There’s not really any reason not to, provided you are in full health and the person you want it cast on is also healthy.
The main thing is to be aware of the potential complications and set expectations accordingly. Be mindful of how confinement and fear could be affecting the person you desire — draw on your own experience of how these things are affecting you.
I am still accepting requests, and I am still casting spells. And I’m delighted to say that thus far, the results are as positive as they have always been.
