Inventory Summary for: Magic Acts (Gesture)

A complete charm scenario consists of one or several versified formula(s) and/or one or more technical indication(s) concerning the gestures to be accomplished while reciting the first. When the gestural indications are missing, one can at times find implicit or explicit information about them in the formulas. In what follows, we concentrate on some of the basic gestures used (a) to learn about one's future marriage; (b) to ensure the successful accomplishment of the charm scenario by respecting certain interdictions and procuring the necessary plants, objects, and substances; (c) to get the needed help from a number of important magic auxiliaries; (d) to perform specific love charms, such as those for beauty, honor and love; for seeing one's fated spouse; for undoing negative charms, for weakening/suppressing a rival etc.
