A reader asks, "I'm new to studying about Paganism, and I'm looking at a lot of different forms of witchcraft. One thing I don't understand is that some people say it's never okay to hex or curse anyone, but a lot of times I read about curses and hexes in folklore and historical accounts. What if someone's hurting me? Can I protect myself? Am I allowed to curse them? I don't know how this works! Help!"
And of course much like everything else in modern witchcraft and Paganism, it's really going to depend on who you ask: Negative Magic - Is Cursing or Hexing Acceptable?
