On the Road Jinxing Spell

By Janina Renee


A common form of “self-jinxing” occurs when you make an error and become so rattled by it that you make even more mistakes as a result.  This is particularly unnerving when you do something improper in traffic such as accidentally running a stop sign or making a questionable turn in front of a police officer.  To break such a spell, it’s a good idea to find a convenient place to pull off of the road and find something to divert your mind for at least ten minutes.  If there are gift shops near by, consider stopping to buy a yellow candle in honor of Mercury, god of travel, and take it home to burn as a spell for clear thinking on the road.  If you wish, inscribe it with the “R” rune Rad.
