Wiccans/Pagans only: What happens if two people cast spells for the opposite goals?

by johndeand:

in these examples, there are two witches (mary and john) and their acquaintance george

example: if mary casts a spell for rain but john casts a spell for sun, then what happens?

another example: if mary casts a healing spell on george, but john puts a curse of bad health on george, what happens?

yet another: if mary casts a spell to find a job but john puts a curse on mary to prevent her from finding a job, what happens?

it doesn’t have to necessarily involve a good energy vs. bad energy…. like in the first example, both spells involve good energy but are cast with opposite goals. so what happens?

i’ve been wondering about this lately =]
good answers all three of you!! and each answers kind of a different “aspect” of the craft and its rules… thanks =)

Hmm, good question. I would have to say that is where God(s) would intervene. And always, I do believe a person’s individual will (i.e. george) is more important than spells any day. You can do healing spells all day, but if a person does not want to get better, it will not make a difference.

I think it would depend on the stronger will. It’s highly unlikely that both parties involved would have equal amounts of will they’ve spent into their spell. But the Lord and Lady still have the last word.

Wouldn’t the negetive come back at the person casted the spell?

This is a universal and very common in all religions or beliefs. In World war two the German soldiers had Gott Mit Uns on their belt buckles. The Allies constantly stated that God was with them.

If spells/prayers are mirrored, they are sterile.

Well as spells are not instant like portrayed in Hollywood witchcraft, you could argue in example one that if it rains one day and is sunny the next they both got their wish, or if it rained at some point of the day and was sunny another part of it. in example two it would be immoral for John’s spell and as the Law of Three would kick in his spell would in essence backfire and probably end up getting sick or having some other karmic retribution. Again in example three john’s goal is harmful to another, going against the… Read more »

Hmm possibly they’d cancel one another out, or the person with the strongest will would win. Or there’d be a mixture of the two… such as sunny with patchy rain… or one would follow the other… But I think it’s mostly down to will power.

Then the gods could get involved and start handing out female-dog-slaps 😛
