iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Looking for a spell that will make your partner lust for you and only you? Or a black magic revenge incantation to curse your enemy? Or maybe a good old-fashioned demon-obliterating potion for $51 that promises to “destroy heavy demonic energies, entities, beings and forces” is all you need.

Come September, though, you’ll no longer find these quick fixes on eBay. Beginning Aug. 30, the online auction site will ban the sale of curses, spells, hexes, magic, prayers, blessing services, magic potions, healing sessions and more.

The ban on magic potions and curses has some users up in arms.  One, writing on the eBay forum, even called the ban discriminatory.

And last week a petition titled “Don’t Ban Our Psychics,” which has collected more than 800 signatures so far, went up online.  “Ebay don’t ban our metaphysical services! Fight for the psychics and the Tarot readers, the witches, wiccans, pagans, new age, healers, blessings, spells, voodoo, items of magic and most of all our clients and friends!” the petition read.
