A Spell to Ward Your House

Warding or protecting is as individual as most anything is. This is one way to do it.

GrannyMoon's Morning Feast


Helpful when moving into a new space, on occasions when things just don’t feel quite right, or as an infrequent protective boost.

Using an elemental elixir*, paint a three inch horizontal line above windows, and a five point star above doors, chimneys, and other openings.  Begin the spell at the topmost floor of your house, and end with the door or entry that you use most often.  As you work the spell, you can chant the following to help you focus your intention.
