This Servant shows us how we are being restricted by outside forces.
He encourages us to face the opposition and restrictions imposed on us by others.
When The Opposer appears it is an indication that you are being restricted by outside forces or influences. Someone or something is stopping you from getting your way – this could be laws, social customs, family obligations or traditions or social pressure, but often represents an actual person in your life.
Although they both deal with restriction or limiting, The Devil points at restrictions from within yourself, while The Opposer is about restrictions coming from outside forces.
You can overcome this resistance but the victory can only be achieved by action- it will not resolve itself if ignored. There must be some form of a battle with the opposing force for the oppression to cease. The Opposer will never back down unless confronted and even then events may get worse before a solution is found. This may result in the need for you to walk away – but not always; this isn’t a card of failure or defeat. It’s just a sign that a battle is ahead and you must prepare yourself for that.
The Opposer reminds you that for the most part these restrictions aren’t actually real in an absolute sense, but going against them will usually come with a penalty or punishment. For instance, you can drive your car at any speed you desire, but if you get caught going too fast in a restricted area you will have to face the consequences and pay the fine.
The Opposer can be banished when someone appears in your life that is getting in your way, messing with your plans, or is placing some sort of restrictions on you. Drawing The Opposer’s sigil along with writing your target person’s name on a stone and then throwing it into the sea or a river is a great banishing .As is writing the person’s name along with The Opposer’s sigil on paper and then burning it.
In baneful magick, The Opposer can be sent to restrict an enemy in their plans. Also useful when trying to stop new laws being created, or to stop decisions being made. Also useful for restricting planning permission or permits.
