Each of these Gods has their own needs in terms of offerings, colors and the best time to work with them. The spell itself (in this case Protection), also has its own special energies which should be attended to. Unless otherwise stated, spells grow in power between the new and full moon (waxing) and reduce in power during waning moons.
For Protection spells, the best day to perform the spell is
Saturday, since Saturday is associated with Protection. (In fact it is associated with all of these: duties, responsibilities, protection, finding families, works of magic, buildings, meditation, life, doctrines).
Saturday also happens to be the favored day of
the Goddess Demeter/Ceres ,
the God Dagda ,
the Goddess Gaia/Tellus ,
the more the spell and deity have in common, the better!
You should also be sure to use the right herbs, candles, perfumes and incense for your ritual. For your Protection ritual, the following would be appropriate, in addition to any offerings you wish to make to the chosen deity:
Carnation, Coconut, Dragons Blood, Frankincense, Lotus, Myrrh, Sandalwood,
Blue, Light Blue, White,
Garlic, Mugwort, Liquorice, Ivy, Flax, Spearmint, Sweet Cicely, Basil, Rosemary, Sage, Houseleek, Valerian, Cedarwood chips, Devil's Claw, Juniper Berries, Kava Kava Root Powder, Mistletoe Leaf, Sandalwood Red Powder, Sea Salt, Yellowdock, Yerba Santa,
Remember to check the needs of the Gods and Goddesses you intend to work with also, and include appropriate offerings for them.
Every Tradition has its own method of ritual construction, so you will have to decide how best to incorporate all the above elements into your calls, casting, purification and offerings. All these elements help to raise the cone of power, and focus the attention of the deities, the elemental forces and you, on the matter at hand. Finally we come to the spell itself. Here is a Protection spell you can use for this ritual:
You will need:A Small vialPen and paperA small token of the thing you wish protection from. Water
Black, White or Red Sealing Wax
Write the name of the thing or person you wish to be protected from on the paper. Go over it nine times. As you do this, repeat the words:
No harm shall you do to me or mine.
No harm shall you do to thee or thine.
Fold the paper as small as possible, and place it in the vial. Place the token in the vial also. Pour water in the vial so that it covers everything, but leaves enough room for the water to expand when it is frozen.
Place the top on the vial, and seal it with sealing wax. Place the vial in the freezer (out of sight of prying eyes) and keep it there.
When you have completed the spell, thank the gods and carry out your normal closing ceremonies. We hope the above spell and information is useful to you. Please Let us know how you got on!
