To cause the breakup of a romantically involved couple.
***This was written at the request of a reader. Looking for a Santa Muerte magick spell for a specific purpose but don't see it here? Get in touch to make a suggestion!
You Will Need:
At your Santa Muerte altar, light your black candle, so that you may work in its light. Write the names of the couple that you want to cause to break up on the piece of paper. If able, add an additional one or two facts about the couple to the piece of paper - like their address, anniversary date, or even email addresses. You can also introduce a photo, and write directly onto it. The more information you can add to the paper, the stronger you will make the magickal link between the paper and your target couple.
Crafting the Curse:
Next, place flat on your altar the piece of paper with your target couples' names, and place your two poppets on top of the paper, so all three may rest in the black candle's flame. Spit three times over the dolls and paper, reciting the below Break Up Curse Santa Muerte magick prayer after each spit (this is the introduction of your negativity activator, to further illustrate the negative intent behind this curse). Take your lemon verbena herb and sprinkle a portion of the herb around the dolls and paper, encircling them in the negative energy of the herb. As you sprinkle the herb, recite the Break Up Curse Santa Muerte magick prayer (found below).
Leave the poppets and paper, which have now been spat upon three times and sprinkled with lemon verbena herb, on your altar to rest in the black candle's flame for about 30 minutes, to give the negative energy a chance to build.
After 30 minutes, retrieve the two poppets and the piece of paper. Fold a small amount of lemon verbena herb into the paper and fold the paper into a small rectangle. Holding the poppets back to back, wedge the paper between both poppets. Wrap both poppets (with the piece of paper between them) from top to bottom in black ribbon. Ensure you cover the faces of both poppets.
Continue to recite the below Break Up Curse Santa Muerte magick prayer (found below) as you wrap your poppets. Leave the bundled poppets on or near your altar until the black candle has burned to completion.
Separating the Poppets
When the candle has burned to completion, unwrap the two poppets and separate them geographically, to further symbolize the separation you want to inflict. In other words, pick a distant trash can in your town to dispose of one poppet, and then go to a distant trash can in a neighboring town to dispose of the other.
Feel free to focus on your intent of breaking up this couple, and to recite the below Break Up Curse magick prayer, as you run this magickal errand. Placing a geographic barrier between the poppets, like a county line, or a river, will further illustrate and make clear your magickal intent.
Disposing of Your Curse Materials
You may dispose of whatever else remains from this curse petition using the instructions outlined in my post How to Dispose of Magick Trash.
Break Up Curse Santa Muerte Magick Prayer
Santa Muerte, kill this love,
curse it now, from up above.
Anger and fights I invite,
keep this couple up at night.
Piss and sulfur fill the air,
whenever these two do get near.
Santa Muerte make it be,
for your help I do beseech.
In your name, amen.
