Lots of people come to Doktor Snake seeking guidance on court cases – how to avoid them in the first place if possible; or if it’s too late for that, how to make sure that they come away with the most favorable outcome possible.
Aside from the matter of whether it’s morally right to try to sway a verdict, let’s have a look at the methods that are open to you to consider.
The first one is a practical suggestion rather than a magick one: if your lawyer is not doing a good job, FIRE HIM! The sooner you do this the better, and if you question whether you can afford a better lawyer, a more important question to ask yourself is which do you value more; your liberty or money? It’s a no-brainer. So find the best person you can…
If you’ve already got as far as having a court case brought against you, it’s not too late, and there are a few things you can try. The first is a little candle magick.
You will need:
- Blue candle
- Friendly judge oil (see recipe below)
- Hematite chip
- Danda root
To make the friendly judge oil, you will need:
- Jojoba oil as the carrier oil (jojoba is used to signify victory)
To which you add:
- 2 drops of carnation oil
- 1 drop of anise oil
- 1 drop of cinnamon oil
Once you have blended the oil, store it in a blue or amber glass bottle, to which you have added a hematite chip.
To do this spellworking, carve the name of the judge and any information that you feel is relevant into the candle. Dress it with the oil, then burn it and ask Santaria orisha/god Ochossi for his help. Tell him exactly what help you need, and the outcome you are looking for.
Carry out this ritual every day. The sooner you can start it, the better.
Ochossi really appreciates offerings in return for his help, so it is a good idea to offer him fruit or honey coated peanuts. (honey roast peanuts from the store are fine). Remember to replace the fruits to keep them in tip-top condition – Ochossi won’t be too pleased with a few mouldy grapes and a wrinkled apple.
When it comes to the trial, you can try using a court room luck mojo bag to help get a more lenient sentence. If it is possible, pop the hematite chip that you’ve stored in the friendly judge oil bottle into a small green bag, which you have also anointed with a couple of drops of the oil.
To the bag, add some gravel root (sometimes called Joe Pye root), and some cascarilla powder. Cascarilla powder is so easy to make yourself, and is a brilliant all round protector and cleanser, which has its root in Santeria. Basically, all it is, is washed, dried and powdered eggshell.
Carry the mojo with you when you go to court. You can also try taking some extra cascarilla powder and blowing it into the air as close to the courthouse as you can.
You can also try chewing a piece of danda root (discreetly!) at the hearing, as danda root is credited with the power of making you be able to influence someone’s words, so that they say what should be said to provide you with the best possible outcome.
There is also a rather more grim tactic that you can use to prevent people from giving false testimonies. For this (if you want to try it), you will need to get a beef tongue from your local butcher.
The next thing to do is to write the names of anyone who needs to be silenced on separate pieces of paper. Cross over each of the names with your name. As you do this, really focus on your desire to silence them, and it’s even more powerful if you can shout things like “Shut up!” or “Be silenced!” while you do the writing part.
Next comes the slightly gruesome point – for each of the pieces of paper, you need to cut a slit into the tongue, then fold the papers and place them in the slits that you have made. Then pin the slits shut, dress the tongue with vinegar and cayenne pepper (to cause extra discomfort to the person who is going to testify), and store the whole kaboodle in the freezer until the court case is done and dusted.
It has to be said though, that a major part in any working regarding the outcome of a case is affected by whether the person who is standing trial is genuinely repentant for their crime.
So there are a few things to try, and may the force be with you!
