Protection Spells for Our New Home

Protection Spells for Our New Home
As most of y'all know, we bought an old church & one-room schoolhouse on 3 3/4+/- acres in northwest Kansas and are renovating them. The schoolhouse is our home, and the huge church building is my husband's machine shop upstairs and my craft room and altar room downstairs.

As they are in the church, I consider them on sacred ground and thus protected by the Divine due to the many prayers and services and weddings and memorials that were held there for the 50+ years it was in use. Having sat vacant for 30+ years, the energies has settled and become dormant to an extent, but they're still there. I can feel it coming alive now, ever since we began clearing out the debris and trash that had been dumped there over the years. And a true blessing has been finding that Owls have taken up residence in the rafters. They'll have to be closed out permanently, but we're going to build them a house on one of the unused power poles behind the church. Hopefully they'll take up residence there rather than move away completely.

We call this one "Bam-Bam".

We call this one "Pebbles".

The Owl's Correspondences are:
Aspects:
Change, Contemplative, Darkness, Death, Deception clearing, Detachment, Discernment of motives & actions of others, Divination, Enlightenment, Extraction of secrets hidden within self or others, Fate seer, Hearing, Insight, Messenger of Death, Moon magick, Night magick, Omens, Patience, Riddler, Scrutiny, Seeing hidden motives, Silence, Solitude, Swift & exacting judgment, Totem of Mystics & Clairvoyants, Truth, Vision, Watcher, Wisdom, World view

Sacred to:
Annis the Blue Hag, Artemis, Asclepias, Athena, Blodeuwedd, Gwy, Hecate, Lilith, Minerva, Native American totem, Nyctimene, Persephone, Tlazolteotl

I consider these Owls to be extremely good blessings!

As for particular spells I will be doing around the house as we complete more of the projects, I have several planned:

1) When the window sills are finally put in place, I will pour a line of red brick dust first, then place the sill over it, sealing it in permanently. Also, each window (and there are alot of them) will have a SATOR Square inscribed on each sill around the window pryor to the finished sill trim being put in place and painted.


2) We have wood floors that need refinishing, so when they are at the point of sealing I will first draw on the floor with the brush a very large pentacle (a pentagram with a circle around it) of protection. I haven't decided yet, but I am considering a large one in the center, and 4 others in the corners, basically producing a Quincunx Cross. Each pentacle will be drawn according to what I wish to draw from that particular direction.


3) I will print out several of the Seals of Solomon to be attached to the back of the sheetrock as it is going up on the walls, both for protection, as well as for the blessings each bestows. There will also be Seals that are placed in the shops to bring in customers and income. (To see each Seal of Solomon I've chosen, go to the Lesson: Magic Seals of Solomon).

Shop's Seals of Solomon:
1st Pentacle of Saturn - Designed to compel others to submit to the possessor's wishes & requests.

2nd Pentacle of Saturn - Of great value when meeting with adversaries in business or competitions of any kind. It should be carried when looking for work or negotiating any financial contracts.

4th Pentacle of Saturn - This seal is liked by those who wish to impose their will upon others. It also alleged to bring good news to the possessor.

1st Pentacle of Jupiter - A Talisman for acquiring treasure for gaining business.

2nd Pentacle of Jupiter - The Magical Seal for acquiring glory, honors, riches, & tranquility of mind.

4th Pentacle of Jupiter - Serves to acquire wealth and honor.

6th Pentacle of Jupiter - Protects from all earthly dangers.

7th Pentacle of Jupiter - It has great power against poverty.

6th Pentacle of Mars - The owner of this cannot be harmed. If attacked, the foe's weapon shall turn against him.

1st Pentacle of the Sun - The 'El Shaddai' talisman which is alleged to bring the possessor all things they may desire.

3rd Pentacle of the Sun - Serves to attract renown, glory, riches.

1st Pentacle of Venus - Brings friendships to the possessor.

3rd Pentacle of Venus - This serves to attract love, respect, and admiration.

1st Pentacle of Mercury - Conveys personal magnetism upon the owner.

2nd Pentacle of Mercury - This Talisman is said to gain the impossible; granting wishes contrary to the order of nature.

2nd Pentacle of the Moon - Protects against all perils by water, calms one in the event of natural phenomena such as electrical storms, hurricanes, earthquakes or tornadoes.

4th Pentacle of the Moon - Defends from all evil, and from any injury to body or soul.


Home's Seals of Solomon:
3rd Pentacle of Saturn - Good for protection against any plots made by others & for defense against evil spirits.

5th Pentacle of Saturn - Protects the home, and guards all treasures & possessions one may own.

3rd Pentacle of Jupiter - Defends & protects against any enemy & against any evil spirits which may linger near one's person or home.

6th Pentacle of Jupiter - Protects from all earthly dangers.

2nd Pentacle of Mars - Serves with great success against all kinds of diseases when it is applied to afflicted parts.

6th Pentacle of Mars - The owner of this cannot be harmed. If attacked, the foe's weapon shall turn against him.

1st Pentacle of the Sun - The 'El Shaddai' talisman which is alleged to bring the possessor all things they may desire.

1st Pentacle of Venus - Brings friendships to the possessor.

2nd Pentacle of Mercury - This Talisman is said to gain the impossible; granting wishes contrary to the order of nature.

2nd Pentacle of the Moon - Protects against all perils by water, calms one in the event of natural phenomena such as electrical storms, hurricanes, earthquakes or tornadoes.

4th Pentacle of the Moon - Defends from all evil, and from any injury to body or soul.

I'm sure there will be other things I will add, such as Bindrunes, but these will be decided upon and made as I think of them at the time.

Not many people are lucky enough to be able to start from scratch, literally, as we are. But these protections and blessings can be done anywhere. It just takes a bit of thought and creativity. So think of what your needs are in terms of protection, blessings, and/or income, choose your Seals, print them out, and place them where you feel they will do their best work for you. Don't forget your wallet and your vehicle(s) too! ;)

I wish you great success in your works! :)

New Blessings

New Blessings
Well, it's Spring (almost Summer) and my garden is planted (our last frost date is May 19th). Every year when I plant I worry that the Mother may not bless that work - and it is some backbreaking work for me! LOL As I plant the seeds I see Her hand touching each and blessing them to grow. I thank Her for the bounty to come and the blessing of the work of my hands. 

But every year She does bless my work and I receive the joy that comes from working the soil and planting those tiny seeds. I cannot tell you how much happiness I get out of seeing those first shoots coming up out of the ground! Especially the ones that aren't the weeds! ;D

The garden - potatoes & garlic here in the front and everything else behind.

This year I moved the garden from behind the church building (now my husband's machine shop) out into the field (formerly the horse pasture - I miss Ahri & Preacher terribly, but they're much happier in their new place with hills & a creek & woods). The soil in this space was a bit compacted due to the horse & donkey trampling it, as well as the huge bulldozer that had gone over it last year when it was clearing all the debris and old trees out. So, honestly I wasn't too sure how well I would do.

I planted potatoes and onions first (May 6th), and those came up in a heartbeat, as you can see in the picture above. I was sooo excited! They're continuing to grow beautifully too. The onions I have since moved over to companion plant with the tomatoes (which haven't yet begun to sprout), so I can mound the dirt up the potato plants as they grow, giving more room for more potatoes to grow.

Red Onions

The rest of the garden I planted on May 23rd, and yesterday, the 30th I saw Sunflower, Cucumber, Cantaloupe, Radish, and Sugar Pumpkin sprouts coming up!

Sunflowers starting to pop out! Yaaay! :)

Cucumbers

 Cantaloupe

Radishes

Sugar Pumpkin

The Mother has blessed my work! As I watered the garden I thanked Her the whole time, and I could feel Her there acknowledging my "thanks" to Her. I know I'm going to have a great garden this year. Maybe even my best yet. :)

I'm going to have fun weeding when I finally am able to get into the rows to weed. But I have to wait for the sprouts to come up first. Weeding between the rows is easy enough, but I really hate waiting so long for the planted rows. I have sworn to be diligent in my weed maintenance this year! LOL I'd mulch it completely, or put down straw, but the winds here get so ridiculous that it would all blow away, and end up being a total waste of money. So. I must "weed". :( LOL

I learned a really "short but sweet" spell to say over the seeds as they're planted, and so far I'd have to say it works! I suggest you try it as well.

One for the Sun
One for the Crow
One for the Earth
One to Grow

As I water the garden each night I also ask the Mother to continue her vigil and assistance, and to bring rain as needed. We've had a bit of a dry spell this year, so a little "extra" won't hurt! :) Last night it rained "just enough", so the vegetable garden and all of my flower beds are nicely wetted. This yard is so large, plus the garden, it takes almost an hour and a half to fully water everything! Good thing I enjoy it. LOL

So, I hope all y'all's gardens, what ever size they may be, are doing beautifully as well, and that the Mother has blessed them as She has mine.
