Old Cast Aside Misfortune Spell
Full well you know if you have already made your way upon the mystic path that the Rowan tree is honored among many people, for evil and bad fortune doth it dispel.
Now, when summer hath come unto its height and the Rowan tree is full-laden with ripe red fruit, find you first a branch that reaches unto the South. Take this branch within your grasp and now, with light touch, shake upon the tree to cause four berries to fall. Take these up, and gather also four leaves from the very same branch, and then make haste with them, for to bring them back unto your chamber.
Now make you a fire within your hearth, of birch and apple wood, and when the fire blazes with red and golden flame, cast forth a single Rowan berry and its leaf, unto the heart of the fire forthwith, and say these words:
“Virtue be mine, As from this tree Beware The Fire I cast at thee.”
Now take a second berry and its leaf, and consign these too unto the flames, and say these words:
“Wisdom is mine, As from this tree Beware the fire I cast at thee.”
And now take the third berry and its leaf, and cast them forth unto the fire. And say these words:
“Power is mine, As from this tree Beware the fire I cast at thee.”
Now, in due time, take the fourth berry and its leaf and place them within an iron pot. Roast this pot slowly over the fire until the berry and its leaf have become dry and black with heat, and then cool them on the ground. Place them now within a red cloth and bury this magick charm within the earth and yet near the doorway which leads into your house, for then shall no harm befall thee. For evil-doers shall withdraw themselves from its presence should they come unto this place.
