A Mirror Spell of Protection for the Home
Compose an altar: place a censer in the center before an image of the Goddess. Have a 12 inch (or so) round mirror there as well. Ring the altar with 9 white candles. Burn a protective incense (such as sandalwood, frankincense, copal or rosemary) in the censer. Beginning with the candle most directly before the Goddess image, say these words:
“Lunar light protect me!”
Repeat as you light each candle until all are glowing. Now, holding the mirror, invite the Goddess in Her lunar aspect with these words:
“Great Goddess of Lunar Light and Mistress of the Seas;
Great Goddess of the mystic night and of the mysteries;
Within this place of candles bright and with your mirror nigh;
Protect me with your awesome might while ill vibrations fly!”
Standing before the altar, hold the mirror facing the candles so that it reflects their flames. Keeping the mirror toward the candles, move slowly, clockwise, around the altar, watching the reflected firelight bouncing off your surroundings.
Gradually increase your speed, mentally invoking the Goddess to protect you. Move faster and faster; watch the light shattering the air, cleansing it, burning away all negativity and all lines along which the ill energies have traveled into your home.
Charge you home with the protective light of the Goddess. Race around the candles until you’ve felt the atmosphere change, until you feel that your home has been cleansed and guarded by the Great Goddess.
When finished, stand once again before the image. Thank the Goddess in any words you wish. Pinch out the candles one by one, bind them together with white cord and store them in a safe place until (and if) you need to use them again for this same purpose. Say:
“In no way will this spell cause me
to suffer any adverse effects!”
To Seal or Ward Portals in the Home
1⁄2 lemon for each drain and toilet in the home
Cut the lemons in half, crosswise. Squeeze the juice of each piece down a drain or toilet while saying something like:
By the juice of fruit ruled by the Sun
Return at once from whence you’ve come
I banish you and seal this place
From your invasion to my space
Your spirit’s blocked eternally
As I will, so mote it be
When you’re finished, wet your fingers with the pulp and use them to draw a tiny banishing pentagram on the tops and bottoms of each window frame while saying the same words.

Shield To Keep You & Yours from Harm
For this spell, you need the following materials:
red cloth and ribbon
jasper and obsidian
a pinch of dried thyme
red or white candle.
Carve the protection symbol of your choice into the candle, and anoint it with oil. Combine the stones, herbs, and thorns, and wrap them in the cloth. Visualize being enclosed in a protective shield of white light as you prepare the amulet. Light the candle, and place the amulet nearby. Focus on the energy of the burning candle, and infuse the amulet with power. Allow the candle to burn completely, and carry the amulet with you for protection. Speak this charm when you need extra protection:
Mars, breathe your fire
into these stones and herbs.
Wrap me in the warmth of your protection.
Shield me from harm.
Blessing the Boundaries of Your Home Ritual
Everyone has land boundaries, whether a house with lands or an apartment. These boundaries need to be respected and protected. By blessing them, you can strengthen your protection against intruders of all kinds; unwanted and unwelcome visitors, stalkers, burglars, noisy neighbors, intruding religious peddlers, and sales people!
If you can, or feel brave enough to walk the boundaries of your property great, if you live in an apartment and you feel your ritual may be noticed, walk through every room of your house.
If you can walk the boundaries outside, take a bowl of white cornmeal. Hold it up to the Sun or Moon and ask the Gods/Goddess to bless it for you. Beginning to the left of your entrance move clockwise, lightly sprinkling the cornmeal as you go. Chant:
Blessings and honor to all who guard my boundaries
Blessings and thanks for your help and protection.
May my property and dwelling be safe under your care.
I offer you friendship and blessings.
When you come to the starting point, sprinkle some across the entrance path to your home, that will act as a double barrier.
It is helpful to build a shrine or home for your guardians by the door. It can be anything from a potted plant, a shrub, a collection of stones it encourages the guardians to stay in full view of your home. Just make sure you attend to their home, never let it get cluttered with leaves and such, for you could offend them by your forgetfulness.
Bless the cornmeal just the same, and then from the doorway of your apartment, begin with each room to the left if possible, if not, trace each room beginning from the left of each door. Some just do the outer perimeters of the apartment (if yours is that big), Go to each room repeating the chant as above and when you come back to the main entrance, sprinkle some of the cornmeal on the threshold of the door. Inside the door, keep a potted plant or a gathering of rocks on a table or ledge so they will have a place to reside.
Household Protectors Ritual
Everyone has a protector, individual and family collective. If you think you don’t get help from yours, perhaps you need to give them a little more attention and praise. Use statues, bowls of stones, or other focal objects as a habitation for the family protectors.
This ritual is best during the waxing moon. Gather the following objects on your altar. Choose incense that reminds you of herbs, forests, and green growing things. Put a green candle in a holder and lay your wand beside it.
Decorate the immediate area around your symbol with pine cones, small statues of deer or other forest animals, ivy, holly, or something similar. Clean the guardian symbol so it hasn’t any dust or dirt on it. If the symbol is small enough set it on the altar or next to it.
Light the incense and candle. Stand before your altar and say:
Guardian spirits, I invite you to join me here at this altar.
You are my friends, ,and I wish to thank you.
Take the incense and circle the guardian symbol three times, moving clockwise.
I thank you for the atmosphere you help to keep clean and pleasant in this home.
Move the candle clockwise around the symbol three times.
I thank you for the light you send to purify and dispel the darkness.
With the wand in your power hand, encircle the symbol three times clockwise.
I ask for your continued help and protection for me, my family, my pets, and my property. I ask that you drive away trouble-makers, thieves, and other, physical and non-physical, who are bent on evil disruptive purposes. I thank you for your friendship and love.
Stand with your arms raised and say:
Lovely Goddess, Lord of the Greenwood, I present to you the guardian of this house, the special spirit I have invited into my home. I honor this guardian in this symbol of its being. Bless this guardian. And to your blessings, I add my thanks for its protection and friendship.
If you have more than one guardian, change all the its to their and so on. Spend a few moments lovingly caressing the symbol, mentally expressing that the guardian is important to you. If you have provided food and drink, invite your guardian friends to party with you. Talk with them, being sensitive to feathery caresses and mental whispers. When you are finished, thank them for their presence at your ritual.
Chant to Shield Oneself from an Enemy
For best results, say this chant three times each day for two weeks.
Space there is and space there be
Between (name of enemy) and me
By Waning Moon this space shall grow
Until she (he) no longer causes woe
For anyone, for mine, for me
As I will, so mote it be

TURQUOISE PROTECTION AMULET
The ancients regarded turquoise as a powerful magickal aid to ward off misfortune, illness, and the evil eye. You can use turquoise to make your own amulet for protection.
To begin, during the waxing Moon take a piece of blue turquoise or an item of blue turquoise jewelry and hold it in your hand for a moment. In your mind’s eye, picture a blue light surrounding you. Hold the stone to your heart, and breathe on it to charge it with your power, saying:
“Stone of blue, surround me with protective energy.
I am protected by your soothing blue light.”
Carry your turquoise with you or wear it as often as you can.
A Spell to Cast When You Feel Threatened
We all go through times when we feel that we are under threat, perhaps at work when schedules are tight and tempers are about to snap. Or maybe in the home when tensions are making themselves felt, creating a chill in the air. This spell, which calls for excellent visualization skills, protects you by forming a crystal shell around you, protecting you from the bad vibrations of ill temper.
You will need:
A clear crystal of quartz or any favourite one that is full of clear light
Place the crystal on a table where it will catch the sunshine. Sit at the table and breathe in deeply through the nose. Hold the breath for a moment or two before exhaling through the mouth. Repeat this several times, absorbing the light cast by the crystal as you inhale and exhaling any negative feelings, doubts and darkness.
After a minute or two, stand and begin visualizing a ring of crystal rising around you, from your feet upwards, getting higher and higher with each breath you take.
When the crystal ring is above head height, see it close over you, forming any shape in which you feel comfortable to be enclosed – a pyramid perhaps, or maybe a dome.
Still breathing deeply, feel the crystal form a floor beneath your feet. Stretch your arms and feel your fingers touch the sides. Look upwards and see the dome or pyramid point. If you can, see yourself from outside the protective crystal in which you have surrounded yourself.
Within this crystal,
I am safe from negative thought,
And will be so,
whenever I return to it.
And let it be done,
that it harm no one.
When you feel it is right to do so,return to normal breathing and see the crystal open to allow you to step outside it, safe in the knowledge that you can return to it whenever you need to.
Those who have used this spell find that keeping a crystal in the house, office, or wherever else they think they may need protection from negativity strengthens the spell’s potency.
