I must admit… I do peruse other folk’s magic practices. I do. I want to see if there is something I can usefully and logically add to my repertoire. Some things I agree with, some I don’t. One of the major things I have issue with is incantations in other languages.
(1) The work should always be about you. It needs to know you. If it doesn’t know you, it won’t be as effective. Using an incantation in a language you don’t speak is not authentic for you.
(2) Unless you speak the language you are taking the meaning on face value. The incantation might be something completely different or have a different underlying meaning. I just read a post on tumbler where folks had tattoos with Chinese characters that didn’t mean what they thought it meant. But they don’t speak the language so how would they know.
Ok. I made my point. Every Build doesn’t have to be a mile long.
