Although no animal is more associated with magick than snakes, in general, the vast majority of magick spells for snakes involve methods of repelling them and warding them off. Here we have a number of simple protective devices the warding off and protection from snakes.

  • Agates:

  • Alkanet:

Among its magic powers, alkanet not only allegedly protects against snakebite but also helps counter and control fears of snakes.

  • Ash leaves and twigs:

Allegdly snakes will not cross over a boundary formed from mingled ash leaves and twigs. If you live in a snake infested area, it might be worth a try.

Make an infusion of black snake root (black cohosh) and add it to your bathwater, so that your aroma will allegedly repel snakes. (Note: Black snake root is not safe for use by pregnant women).

  • Contraveneno:

The bean is poisonous but is used as a magical weapon to prevent snakebite and attack from other venomous creatures. Carry it in a charm bag around your neck. Do not consume it.
