For a while my peeps on Facebook have been asking about more content about protection magick and with Samhain season upon us and the veil growing thin I figured this was the perfect time to do a little dive into this important and much-requested subject. Fortunately, protection magick can be as complicate or as simple as you want. Most Witchy Mamas are somewhere in the hedgewitchery arena in terms of how they cast their magick (with everyday rituals and ingredients without elaborate ritual), which is my favorite way to do — being a hedge witch myself!
Most commonly these stars are found on the outsides of homes, but you can place one anywhere. Over your front door, over your fireplace, hanging in your living room or bedroom — the sky is the limit
Traditionally, the broom is placed bristle-side up next to or mounted over a door. The broom hung accordingly is said to ward off negative energy. Plus, if you’re using the cinnamon variety it will welcome any visitors with a lovely, festive scent too!
And of course there are things to be done that are less obvious that can be done such as sprinkling salt across windowsils, doorways, and the end of your driveway. (Or, I would argue, the assigned parking spots you use if you live in an apartment/condo that do things that way.) Windows and doors can be anointed with special oils or waters, too. (Like the one that come in my Home Blessing Kit!)
Have you ever done a home blessing before? How did you do it and what sorts of things do you use in your home on the regular to keep the energy vibing high? Let me know in the comments below!
