When an Animal is Stupid (Spell)

From Egyptian Secrets of Albertus Magnus, Joseph H. Peterson edition:

When an Animal is Stupid.

When an animal is stupid, when it runs around as if it had the rams, or when it carries the head upon one side, which signifies a sort of woe or pain, it may arise from heat and superfluous blood; hence it would be good to bleed such a beast three or four times, especially on a Friday. In all cases, however an animal should suffer from such an ailment, pro­nounce the following grace three times over it, the first time stand upon the right side of the animal; the second time its left side; the third time again upon the right side, and while saying the grace move constantly your hand over the back of the animal.

Blood forget thy motion, just as our Lord God does unto a man who on the Sabbath day stands still and not listen to the holy gospel's will. + + +
