If anyone in the home should fall sick, take a crystal bowl filled with well-water and wash the hands and the face of the patient with it. Then, carry it to the garden door, and call for the cat of the household. When she appears, say to her:
Cat spirit, bright as sixpence,
Chase the devil a long long distance.
His soul I hold in these drops of water ~
May he be routed before next moon’s quarter.
Then you must throw the water away onto the garden, so that it passes over the cat but does not fall on her. She will, as likely as not, run away as if in pursuit of some spirit, and for this you must thank her three times over by using her magickal name.
In throwing the water over her to the ground, you have created the magickal veil of Isis, which summons the demon of the illness and draws it away from your loved one so that the cat may carry it away from the house.
Before the next moon’s quarter, that is, before a week has passed away, the one who has fallen sick should be on the mend.
To encourage broken bones to heal quickly, and to take away the pain, recite this charm over them after they have been set, all the while stroking a black cat.
Blessings on your skull,
With holy secrets it is full,
Let it smile on these bones
Precious as earth’s stones
Let it bless these bones
And hush your groans,
Let it work the spell
To knit these bones and make them well.
Blessings on your skull
With holy secrets it is full.
Gather a little hair from the cat (let it be loose hair, do not hurt her) and put it in a little white linen bag, which is to be worn around the neck until the bones are well on the mend. Bless the cat with her magickal name.
