Spells for Democracy, Oct. 24

Two weeks and three Tuesdays to go :-).

From Views from the Cyberhenge:

Tomorrow’s (10/24) Spell for Democracy

Our original list of 13 spells for 13 Tuesdays has tomorrow’s spell being, “Set up an energy matrix on the astral around all polling places to ensure fairness.” This is a spell that all American Pagans should be willing to participate in, considering the many justified fears about voting machine errors (or hacking), renegade partisans trying to suppress voting among particular population groups, badly trained electoral volunteers, lack of translators for voters needing them, and other threats to a completely fair and honest election.

Everyone in our Spells for Democracy e-group has his or her own way of working magic, but here’s a suggestion for one way that might be effective:

I’ll let you go to Isaac’s blog for the details, but I will add this:

Note: the themes for the next two Tuesdays will be:

(10/31) Offerings to powerful Changemaker deities like Sekhmet, Kali, etc., to defeat any forces of evil who might enter the protected areas and to expose any efforts by dishonest people to rig the vote-counting.

(11/07) Big honkin’ spell-casting all day long combining the first 12 workings (or as much participation as you can manage) & nighttime results vigil.

If you are reading about this exercise in magical democracy for the first time, you might want to visit our Spells for Democracy page here at neopagan.net for some background.

I don’t know about the SfD group, but I for one am not averse to the idea of non-pagans adding Prayers for Democracy along the same lines as the spellwork. Pray for the divinity of your choice to protect polling places from tampering, either electronic or “traditional” (like not enough machines, intimidation, etc.).

And always, always, back up prayers and spellwork with good old-fashioned footwork :-). et’s GOTV and then do what we can to make sure the count is accurate!

Morgan, (4.00 / 3)

I have a 7 day candle ready for the last 7 days…

Love the spells.

We need to make sure that this is a good election, the last one wasn’t. The election commission said 25 states had ” problems”.

Works for me. (4.00 / 2)

I’ve been doing some work towards this myself. I’ll specify it to the concept of voting for the next few weeks. (I’ve been mainly amping up the ‘truth’ pathways), now I’ll just apply it to voting.

Right after the Election… (4.00 / 2)

May I suggest switching straight back to ‘truth’ pathways?

Please?

That’s all I’ve been doing for the last (4.00 / 2)

Six years.
That’s what I’ll continue to do.
I will only open up the paths to truth, I refuse to step across that all too thin line between giving truth a way out into the open, and forcing the truth to appear.

Y’know… (none / 1)

If you just sit back and wait, and hold it back. Truth will appear as a ravening raging beast…

Then it’s just a matter of pointing it in the right direction…

After that you don’t need to do anything more, and can go find something else to do… :>

Heh (none / 1)

I have plenty of power. But it would be nice to redirect said power onto a few other ‘course corrections’.

I will be working the polls on the seventh…. (none / 0)

but intend to spend some time the night before working for the election of the people who are needed to turn our country in the direction it needs to go. (Please note the wording. I didn’t say WHO I thought that was….though I have an opinion.)

And I also will be asking that the voting process go smoothly for all those who come out to vote.
