Psychomancy, sometimes mislabeled neuromancy, is the use of magic concerned with the mind.

The White Council's Third Law of Magic forbids most if not all uses of psychomancy.

DescriptionEdit

Psychomancy deals with enthrallment, mind control, mind reading, personality altering, placing thoughts in the minds of others, manipulating memories, defending one's self against other psychomancy, and things like that.

In the seriesEdit

Proven GuiltyEdit

Main article: Proven Guilty

In Proven Guilty, Molly Carpenter used magic to force two of her friends, Rosanna Marcella and Nelson Lenhardt, to give up drugs. This ended up causing them severe psychic trauma.[1] In doing this, she unknowingly broke the Third Law of Magic, which caused her to be tried as a warlock, where she narrowly avoided a death sentence.[2]

Turn CoatEdit

Main article: Turn Coat

In Turn Coat, Molly used Psychomancy to take a look into Anastasia Luccio's head to find out if anyone has tampered with her mind and is caught doing so by Morgan. Harry lectures her on it since it's against the laws of magic and they both face the Doom of Damocles if there is even the slightest nudge against the laws. Not only that, but this type of magic is very damaging to Molly personally because she risks slipping further into becoming a warlock.[3]
