What is the "evil eye"?
So, I've had odd encounters with people that were ritualistically weird (can't really explain it) about "the evil eye".

I'm wondering how many different meanings it has, because all I can find online is that it pertains to jealousy. There must be something more to it or other beliefs surrounding it?

Yeah it could mean (and is used as)the look certain people would use to show you the darkness inside they're soul, that's one. Trying to impress or intimidate you.


Also it could simply refer to a sideways glance at someone, to indicate detest for someone. More or less to be seen by a third party.

Thirdly it could mean the eye of Horus, or the all seeing eye.

Re: What is the "evil eye"?
This is the weirdness I was referring to:

"Another "test" used to check if the evil eye was cast is that of the oil: under normal conditions, olive oil floats in water, as it is less dense than water. The test of the oil is performed by placing one drop of olive oil in a glass of water, typically holy water. If the drop floats, the test concludes there is no evil eye involved."

How can looking in a cup of water tell you if someone is jealous O_o?

Thanks. Interesting about the eye of Horus. I didn't think of that at all.
