A revenge spell is used to cause physical, emotional, mental or financial harm on the intended recipient, usually someone who has wronged the spell caster or querent. These spells are thought to be very powerful magic and could potentially backfire causing harm to the person seeking revenge.
Traditional Wicca do not practice revenge spells, as they consider these spells to cause negative karma for themselves. However, there are places where people can request a revenge spell be cast for them, according to the California Astrology Association.
As an alternative to seeking revenge, people can use protective and bounce-back spells to counter negative energy. It may also be a good idea to think positive thoughts and consider sending love to the person that has caused harm to the querent, rather than negativity. Positive energy can help cancel out any negativity and give the querent good karma.
