Practical Magic - "Am I Cursed?"

It’s very difficult to tell for certain whether you’ve been cursed. The only way to be absolutely 100% sure is pretty much if someone stands in front of you and slings a hex while you watch them. People can get paranoid during runs of bad luck and want to blame it on baneful magic, but the truth is that curses are very seldom to blame for the bad things that happen to us.

This is not to say that curses aren’t effective. It just means that if every unexpected misfortune was the result of ill-wishing, there would be a whole lot of witches doing nothing but muttering jinxes into jars for weeks on end just to keep up.

Generally, if you have a pre-existing condition that acts up from time to time (i.e. depression, chronic illness, etc), I’d go ahead and cite that as the probable cause of any physical, emotional, or mental discomfort you may be experiencing, unless there is a direct outside stimulus like recent injury or loss.

If you’re worried, you can always employ a Simple Jinx Remover or a Household Hexbreaker (both available here). These should remove baneful magic if there is any to be found, and if there isn’t, it’s still a good cleansing and that can do wonders on its’ own.
