Sex in the Forbidden Zone is the title of a book by Dr. Peter Rutter. The basic concept behind it is that it is not uncommon for people in power—doctors, lawyers, professors, therapists, ministers, psychologists, psychiatrists, etc.—to abuse their position of perceived power by having sex with their patients, clients, parishioners, etc.

In previous posts I've discussed the value of the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram and its first section known as the Kabalistic Cross. In the previous post of this series (LINK) I discussed how to form the pentagrams and the importance of circumambulating as part of the ritual. I'd like to clarify by pointing out that not everyone has the room to actually move around in a circle. Some people will need to simply face one direction and then pivot 90° clockwise while standing in position.
