Taglock

|

By Morningbird

In English, a tagolock is a matted bunch of wool or hair. Metaphysically speaking, a taglock is a personal item that creates a link to the target.

If the taglock is from a person or animal, you might use hair, bodily fluids, a photograph, personal clothing, something bearing their signature, or fingerprints (or a paw print); any other item that can create a sympathetic link with the target of a spell. If your target is a location rather than an individual, a suitable taglock might be a key to the building, some dust from a shelf inside the building, stone from a pathway, a bit of chipped paint, etc. Or, of course, a photograph. For a business, you might use a business card or some of their stationery with their letterhead on it.

The use of the taglock in the spell can vary. It can be used alone, placed inside a witches bottle or added to a poppet or other representational item.
