how to hex someone

You’ve been wronged and you want to get even. Believe me, I understand. I’ve been hurt before, too.  Once, I fell for a narcissist. I’m someone with pretty strong empathic traits and I was quite a tasty snack for him.  Only I didn’t know it at the time. He was a soul-sucking, energy-vampire type of person and he devoured my time, energy, love, and anything else he could get his hands on. We’ll call him Mark, even though that isn’t his real name.

Anyway, Mark told me he loved me, was in love with me. I was deep in the infatuation stage, couldn’t sleep, couldn’t eat, couldn’t think about anything else but him. I fell really hard. Only to find out he was screwing around with many other girls.  In short, he is a slut.  Ugh. You know what? I have the worst luck with men…but I digress.

As you can see, Mark deserved a hex. And he got one. But I’ll finish that story a little later on in the post. Back to you.


It’s only natural to want someone to get their just desserts, especially if he or she is an awful person. Before we begin, I’m making the assumption that you aren’t practicing malicious witchcraft and just want to harm someone who has done nothing to you. If you are doing this for the wrong reasons, well, then batten down the hatches, badness is coming your way. There’s a huge difference between wronging someone who has hurt you and just being a real, er, witch for no reason. With that said, I’m going to teach you how to hex someone, but first I’m going to give you a couple of things to consider in your decision.

Should I hex someone?

First of all, you need to decide if you should hex someone. There are a couple of Wiccan laws or rules that might get in the way. We promise to harm none and there is that pesky threefold law that states what you send out into the universe, you get back times three. However, if this person has harmed you, I don’t believe the universe will hold it against you. And I don’t have a problem with helping them get a little taste of karma.  But you need to decide if this fits in with your view of yourself and witchcraft.

And there is another path. As an alternative, you could focus on healing yourself. Do some spells to enhance your own life, maybe focus on your self care.  Or you could bind the person and keep them from spreading further harm to you or others. Or you might even want to cast a protection spell to keep yourself safe from further harm.

But, if those aren’t options, lets get our hex on…

How to Hex Someone

I have a couple of ideas for you. One is basically a karma spell. You are sending all the negative energy this person has handed you right back at them, times three with a little assist from the threefold law. I call this “hexing light” because you aren’t wishing ill will on them. You are just giving them a taste of their own medicine.

Items you will need:
  • A symbol of the person
  • A mirror

For this type of spell, it’s helpful to have a picture of the person, or something which belongs to him or her. If you don’t have that, you can draw a picture, write the person’s name on a piece of paper, or use something that you associate with him or her.

After you cast a circle,  you will look at the symbol of the person (name, picture, etc.) and name his or her transgressions. What did s/he or do to you? How did it feel? Focus on the hurt, and the pain.

And then say:

Three times I reflect this back on you

Own what you did

Reap what you sowed

Pain and grief you are owed

Please note: This doesn’t have to be exact. You can add your own spin on it. Spells are especially potent when you create them or tweak them to suit you.

After you’ve done this, tape the picture/image to the mirror. Place it on your altar and keep it there. This type of spell would be perfect for the new moon so it will grow more powerful as the moon moves through it’s cycle. Or you could cast it on the full moon for an an extra dose of magical oomph.

The Darker Type of Hex

Only serve this up to someone who has seriously wronged you. If you use this spell lightly, you are offering yourself up to karma as well. Expect a karmic payback with interest.

For this type of hex, I would do a sigil. Use the person’s full name for the design. And write out what he or she did to you.

For example, John Doe is a lying, cheating slut who slept with my best friend.

While you are doing this, picture what he or she did to you, and how you feel about it. It’s important to infuse this anger, sadness, pain into the sigil.

Next, you need to activate the sigil. I recommend fire for this one, so you’ll burn the paper. Just do it safely, so you don’t burn the house down. You can do it over the kitchen sink or use another fireproof vessel. And watch out for your fingers!

I would wash the ashes away or scoop them up and put them in the trash. Whatever you do, just get them out of your space.

A word of warning, magic takes time. It follows the path of least resistance and sometimes a person won’t get what’s coming to them for days, weeks, or even months. Just pay attention, eventually the universe will pay them back for being such a jackass.

I used the karma version on Mark. Although, I probably should have gone darker, but I didn’t want to at the time. I had mixed feelings. Anyhow, one of the girls he was fooling around with found out what he was doing and figured out who the others were. He lost every girl in his “harem” at once.

I found this out because he sent me a “poor me” email, along with saying how much he still loved and missed me.  I was the only one who “really mattered” to him and he would be happy with just me. Ugh. Whatever. I didn’t respond, although I did a little happy dance after I read it.

And then blocked his new email. So long, sucker! Next!

And there you have it, how to hex someone. Have you ever hexed someone? How did it turn out? What did he or she do to you? Tell me in the comments.
