There is a word in Russia, oborot, that translates to ‘one transformed’. It also refers to WEREWOLF and in this particular belief, one who was a Werewolf, transformed from a man to, well Werewolf.
There was a whole ritual that went along with it to which I found very interesting. In fact, for all those people who stand in front of a dark mirror chanting Bloody Mary three times, let me know how this one works out.
So what do you need to do this ritual?
1 Tree that has been cut down (basically a tree stump then)
1 Copper Knife
2 legs (your own for walking)
1 Voice (your own for chanting the ritual)
1 Night (pick your moon)
On the sea, on the ocean, on the island, on Bujan,
On the empty pasture gleams the moon, on an ashstock lying
In a green wood, in a gloomy vale.
Toward the stock wandereth a shaggy wolf.
Horned cattle seeking for his sharp white fangs;
But the wolf enters not the forest,
But the wolf dives not into the shadowy vale,
Moon, Moon, gold-horned moon,
Check the flight of bullets, blunt hunter’s knives,
Break the shepherd’s cudgels.
Cast wild fear upon all cattle,
Oh men, on all creepings things,
That they may not catch the grey wolf,
That they may not rend his warm skin!
My word is binding, more binding than sleep,
More binding than the promise of a hero!
Now spring, which I suppose means leap over the tree stump THREE times. And you will turn into a wolf!
Good luck & Happy Howling,
