I had all the signs of a prosperity spell being cast on myself, which could mean one of two things:I haven't had anything like that happen, and I'm jealous. I want a ritual to not work and result in me getting prosperity too! Is that so wrong?
1. Just from working with that kind of mojo, I picked up some good juju.
or, more likely...
2. The Saint could not accomplish his task so all the energy was just zinging around like a stream of water hitting a wall.
I don't know of any rituals I've done that haven't worked. Lots haven't worked the way I expected at all, but I've always had some kind of result. Sometimes they try, but the spirits just aren't of the proper type to address the problem you sent it to deal with. Some Venus spirits are great at delivering riches. Others are not. Haniel won't necessarily make you rich, but if you try and it fails, you can ask him which Venus spirits would be better for this kind of thing.
Maybe my problem is that I don't think of that as a failed ritual. I consider it an incomplete ritual. Every rite I've done has lead me to new rites, and a single ritual rapidly becomes an ongoing project, like the Bune spirit pot thing.
