We are getting closer and closer to the new house. The kitchen is torn down to the foundation and the foundation is being pulled up as I write. I thought you might like to know what kinds of spells I will be doing on the new house.
First, it is important to save something from the old house to go into the new. I saved a VERY old square cut nail that I will add to a protection bottle. I will probably include the old house key, crossed safety pins to keep bill collectors away, a small mirror to turn back negative energy, and some salt or herbs. I haven't decided on all the contents of the bottle yet. Some other good choices might be nails and pins, garlic, crystals, purified water or whiskey, bones, or finger nail clippings. It depends on what you want to protect, who is allowed to enter, and your personal situation.
Another old into new is a board Will saved. It was in the attic and it will become a family sign. This is his project and he is being secretive about what he is up to.
When moving into a new home, make sure the very first item you bring in is a basket full of things that will make life easier. Put food and water in the basket so that you will never hunger. Money means you will never know poverty. Add a good luck charm. And don't forget to add something you think is pure magick.
Bless each room for your house. Smudge with incense in case workers were in a bad mood or sprinkle salt around the home to cleanse the house of any ghostly activity. Leaving salt on the floor for 24 hours kills fleas. Flies don't like the smell of PineSol or lavender. Mice don't like peppermint. Sprinkling corn meal around the outside of the house prevents ants from entering.
NEVER bring an old broom into a new house. You will bring trouble with it. I think this applies to cleaning rags and mops as well. I also take care to clean and bless my vacuum cleaner because you can't be too careful.
Adding sage to your cleaning supplies will keep unwanted visitors away.
If you can't bury anything on the property (like in an apartment building) bury the item in a potted plant.
Make the house yours by adding your favorite essential oil to a spray bottle of water and spraying the air.
Hang dream catchers as soon as the bed is set up with clean sheets. Don't forget that the direction you sleep in can affect your dreams. There's a bit of information on the subject, but it boils down to where you feel most comfortable. East is the direction of new beginnings and West is the direction of death, but West is also dreams and emotions. North might be a fine choice for people studying Norse magick, and South maybe a good choice if you wish to add passion to your life. However, some people find South unrestful because it is a hot, fiery direction.
Try to eliminate as much useless junk and clutter as possible BEFORE you move. Don't bring a mess into your new home. It is unwise to bring unfinished projects with you. Either finish well before the move or just toss it.
Try not to move when the moon is void of course or when mercury is retrograde. Sometimes these things can't be avoided. If you are being forced into a schedule you're not comfortable with, read, and then reread, everything and think carefully before signing your name. Don't make a major purchase. You can't avoid all problems, but you can ground and center each morning during the move and ask for divine guidance or help.
