Q:

Full Answer

The belief that certain charms or combinations of herbs can cause someone to love someone else is as old as history. Love spells appear in ancient Greek, ancient Hebrew and ancient Egyptian texts among others. But there is no evidence that any such spells work, nor any scientific reason to believe they might. It is conceivable that the user of a love spell might gain confidence from the use of the spell, and thereby create a more favorable opinion of himself. This, in turn, might make him more attractive to others, but such confidence is created in the person's mind, and not by any combination of herbs or magic words.

    What are some spells to become a shapeshifter?

    A:

    According to Spells of Magic, one of the most direct ways of shape-shifting is to choose an animal and begin to understand the creature. The next step is to merge with the animal in spirit and shape-shift in the Astral Plane. Once the shape-shifter has become acclimated to transforming in the Astral Plane, making the transition into physical shape-shifting is much easier.

    What do gargoyles represent?

    A:

    Gargoyles were originally used as water spouts on religious buildings, but quickly came to be seen as a way to ward off evil spirits because of their grotesque look.
