A Magickal Attraction Primer - The Basics of Beauty Spells
You may have run across them by accident or in your spiritual searches - beauty spells. Spells exist that promise to do everything from clear your complexion to increase your overall sex appeal. While you should be wary of some magickal claims (i.e. a beauty incantation promising to change your eye color is just as unrealistic as a money spell promising to make a huge stack of cash appear in front of you), you should also remember that beauty magick is a very real, powerful addition to an individual's spiritual arsenal. If you've ever wanted the skinny on beauty spells - what they are, how they work, and how to select a good one - this is the place for you.The history of beauty spellsTypically when we think of ancient magicks we think of curses and enchantments for power. This is facilitated by Hollywood and magick in popular culture, which often depicts individuals seeking an ancient book or magickal recipe designed to bring power, fame, fortune, or disaster. However, beauty spells are historically some of the oldest charms available. Incantations for beauty and attractiveness are found throughout literature from the Middle Ages. Papyri and clay fragments with supernatural attractiveness remedies have been dated to ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt. Prayers and rituals for beauty are also found in every major world religion. The need for sex appeal, and the magickal means to get it, seems to have been a facet of human existence for as long as history has been recorded.What are beauty spells and how do they work?A beauty spell is, broadly, any charm, incantation, invocation, or glamour that is used to enhance the physical attractiveness of an individual. A spell that increases sex appeal as well as one designed to enhance breast size (yes, these really exist and work) would both be considered beauty spells. Even an invocation cast to increase a person's social marketability would be considered a beauty spell. The category of attraction-boosting magicks is therefore a broad one, but one that encompasses physical attractiveness and overall appeal. Charms of allure can work in a number of ways. The most direct manipulates the attractiveness of a person, what I'll call physical beauty charms. Another is a spell that alters the demeanor or appearance of a person, or characteristic beauty spells. Finally, there are perceptive beauty spells, or charms that alter external perceptions of a person. Allow me to cover these in more depth.Physical beauty spellsAs mentioned, physical beauty magick directly changes a person's physical characteristics. For example, a spell designed to rid a person of acne would be a physical beauty spell. Another example, mentioned above, would be magickal breast enlargement. Spells that lighten skin complexion, cause weight loss, increase facial symmetry, and more are all types of physical attractiveness invocations. The existence of physical beauty spells may seem fanciful to the uninitiated, but they are very real. These spells have a long historical record of success - they have been used by people for centuries upon centuries with strong results. While a physical incantation won't radically alter your appearance, it will alter it enough to produce beneficial and noticeable changes in the way people approach you. A beauty spell could therefore mean the difference between being ignored or asked out for a date.Characteristic beauty spellsCharacteristic beauty spells are those which change or alter an overall characteristic of the individual. For example, a magickal work that makes a person more pleasant to be around would be a characteristic beauty spell because it is influencing a personality trait. Alternately, a spell that increases the overall sex appeal of an individual would also be a characteristic sex evocation. These spells don't influence a single physical trait, but work on the person as a whole. As you may have deduced, characteristic beauty spells are the most powerful.To illustrate this, compare a physical charms, such as clear skin, to a characteristic charmsl, such as high sex appeal. If someone finds you irresistibly sexy, they are probably going to overlook a bad complexion. However, just having clear skin alone isn't going to make you sexier overall. The broad, pervasive transformation that occurs with characteristic beauty spells makes these some of the most powerful spells in existence. However, this is not a rivalry or competition between spells. Remember that beauty magicks work together. You could combine two beauty spells; let's use the clear skin and increasing sex appeal examples above. When casting beauty charms, I always recommend that a physical spell and a characteristic spell are combined for the maximum effect.Perceptive beauty spellsPerceptive beauty spells are unlike the other two types because they don't actually work on a person to make him or her more beautiful. Rather, perceptive these alter peoples' perceptions of you. Rather than actually making you more beautiful, perceptive magicks instead make other people perceive you as more beautiful. This has its pros and cons. If you just want to be more attractive to others, this is typically a sound way to go and has the same results as the other types of beauty spells. However, because perceptive magicks don't actually alter any characteristics about yourself they don't really make you more beautiful per se. Instead, they just make others see you as more beautiful. In a way, this is a sort of illusion cast not on you, but on the third party perceiving you.The mechanism behind this makes perceptive beauty spells more difficult to cast, which is arguably a con. However, a pro is that because the charm is not affecting you, but a third party, itl will be more powerful. The third party looking upon you will see you as more beautiful more often, rather than making a judgment based on your physical appearance or physical characteristics. This makes perceptive beauty spells the favorite of people with a specific target, such as an ex-lover. When attempting to make you more attractive to a specific person, perceptive magicks are some of the most powerful options out there.
