A curse is a magick spell, or ritual with the intention to harm by sending some form of negative energy to a construct, or entity. Curses have been known to cause so many different forms of harm, all depending upon the intentions of the person who places it, or the event that the curse comes from. There are three different types of cursing that are more or less based on what the curses effect these are target curses, bound curses, and family curses.
These types of curses target a specific entity, and are used to cause harm in some way to that specific entity. these curses will be sent out from the practitioner in order to inflict the Target with some form of negative aspects. This process will usually use a magickal link referred to as a taglock in order to connect with the individual entity. These taglocks will be connected to the target through association, similarity, or contagions, and will be the bridge in order for the negative energy to travel along.
These types of curses will be bound to specific objects, and will affect their surroundings with the negative energy that they emit. These curses can also be attached to places themselves, and will affect everything that comes in contact with that place. These types of curses will also affect the objects, or the places themselves putting them into a state of decay, and corruption, while they also go through the process of affecting everything that is in its vicinity. Places, and object bound curses can happen unintentionally through highly emotional, and traumatic negative events, which will infuse into the places, or objects making them into cursed constructs. If done intentionally by a practitioner it should be noted that this type of cursing method can be quite uncontrollable, because you do not know who will come in contact with the place, or the object that you curse, which can have unfortunate consequences.
Family Curses also sometimes referred to as generational curses are curses that affect an entire family, and its bloodline. These type of family curses also decrease in power as generations go on. It is pretty much split by half every time there is a new descendant. These types of curses will target in entire family, and will usually do so for generations causing misfortune, and harm throughout its being.
