Magical Incantation to become a Werewolf

 

tumblr_nb8fqc7GPR1qdxc5jo4_1280A very long time ago, I posted this ritual on my personal website. It gained alot of attention. Unclear on the direction my writing and research was taking me, I deleted the website after so many years running. Over the past few years, I received numerous emails asking for the return of this little historical ritual. Now that we are dusting off, The Pagan and the Pen, I think there couldn’t be a more suitable place to park this little tidbit. Here’s hoping all the regulars that haunted this little piece before, stumbles back upon it….

Now, once upon a time, in one of my encyclopedias, I found a word I had not seen before, Oborot.

The meaning and origins of Oborot can be found living within Russian lore. It’s meaning clear…Werewolf.

An Oborot is a person transformed, literally, into something else. And that’s exactly what this little incantation is supposed to do….transform a man or woman into a Werewolf.


Legend says, in order to use this powerful magic, you will need a few things.

  • The incantation must be done in the woods or forest.
  • A copper knife
  • A tree that has been cut down. A tree stump.

You must go into the woods and stab the cut tree with the copper knife. Then, walk around the stump repeating this incantation:


On the sea, on the ocean, on the island, on Bujan,

On the empty pasture gleams the moon, on an ashstock lying

In a green wood, in a gloomy vale.

Toward the stock wandereth a shaggy wolf,

Horned cattle seeking for his sharp white fangs;

But the wolf dives not into the shadowy vale,

Moon, Moon, gold-horned moon,

Check the flight of bullets, blunt the hunters’ knives,

Break the Shepards’ cudgels,

Cast wild fear upon all cattle,

On men, on all creeping things,

That they may not catch the grey wolf,

That they may not rend his warm skin!

My word is binding, more binding than sleep,

More binding than the promise of a hero!


Once you feel the surge of power, you must spring or jump over the tree trunk three times. Legend says if you do, you will be transformed into a wolf. Afterwards, you are free to run off into the wilds of the forest!

Spells on the Run—->

"Cherie De Sues, Author"As a Wiccan and Gypsy, I’ve found ways to combine these two cultures into my life and faith. I enjoy using spells when I’m in need and have baskets full of colored candles, amulets, herbs, eye of newt and incense. Yes, I just threw that in to see if you were listening, I don’t recall any of my families spells from the Book of Shadows requiring the eye of a newt. Though, I have come across strange ingredients from time to time, and very easy ingredients as well.

My lifestyle as an author and freelance writer is filled with hurry, hurry, hurry, so my spells need to be quick and easy–like a microwaved meal on occasion. I’ve taken very intricate spells and reduced them down to the bare minimum, for ease of use anywhere you happen to be. Let’s face it, having a full ceremony with candles and incense burning as you chant for an hour is not always viable. In the world of fast-food, satisfying your need to connect with the Goddess may need to be in ten minutes.

So here are a couple of my favorite spells that can be done on the run! For more visit,

I found this old charming spell on a piece of paper, slipped into my families Book of Shadows. I believe it was written by my great grandmother, it looks like her handwriting. Helping her children and grandchildren to make wishes was one of Roselyn’s favorite pastimes. We would gather in the unruly garden during the spring and summer after gathering our necessary implements.

1.  Green paper
2.  Pen or pencil
3.  Glass bowl (small)
4.  Bird Seed

Roselyn believed in making “the good wish”, not for profit or fame, but for our family of loved ones. Our wishes were for one another, so I would ask beforehand what my cousins wanted that fit the criteria of a “good wish” and held that in my mind. Each of us chose from a jar, the name of the person we would wish for until the jar was empty. Sometimes I would have two or three names and make separate wishes.

As a sole practitioner, choosing a “good wish” can be for anyone, including yourself. First write the wish on the green paper, then fold the paper three times and place the written wish into the glass bowl. Now cover the paper with bird seed as you visualize what the wish could mean for you or the one you have chosen to receive the “good wish”.

Set the bowl outside for the birds in a dry, covered area from the elements and you’re wish should come true within two weeks. If you feel the wish needs more power, fill the bowl with bird seed and wait another two weeks. Difficult wishes take time and love, remember to allow for both.

When you feel a good friend slipping away from a misunderstanding or your lack of attention, here’s a spell to recapture their good friendship.

1.  Put an acorn in your friends hand, create a necklace by gluing the acorn onto a rawhide tie or leave have them carry the acorn in their pocket. The important thing is for the acorn to be on their person, close to them.

My honor to the mighty Oak, I planted your seed
on my dear friend (name), through thought and deed
that our friendship still be heartfelt and strong
Let (name) return to me not take long
Blessed Be,
so mote it be.

This spell must be chanted thrice every day for three days. The longer your friend wears or carries the acorn, the stronger the bond between you will grow.
