Samhain Enchantment and
Protection Ritual Spell
UNDER THE NEW MOON TIN KIT
The Season of the Witch is upon us once again and Samhain is just about here! This spell is adapted from a Witch Tin Kit I created for my store, Under The New Moon. You will need the following objects to complete this Spell and Enchantment. We will be doing an Enchantment first, then an actual Ritual…so this article covers a 2-fer for your October…to make it all the more Enchanted! Let’s dig in!
We will start with the Object Enchantment first. The main focus of this enchantment is for PROTECTION (of house, home, self, family.) The Enchantment is an “object enchantment. You will need to find an object suitable for enchanting from your home or purchase something that you wish to enchant. This item can be a gemstone, a necklace, a sun catcher, a scarecrow in your front yard is an excellent choice, a pumpkin on your porch or mantle…you get the idea.
So, items you need for this:
1. Altar cloth or clean table surface
2. Object you will be enchanting
3. Tealight candle
4. Incense (if you wish)
Okay, you have your items and now we’re going to talk a little bit about enchantments. Everyone likes the word “enchant” but we, as a society, use this in a “fairytale” sort of way a lot of times. To enchant is to actually “speak over and imbue something with your words, power and intent.” It is to give the thing you’re enchanting, ‘orders from headquarters,’ and hop -to and do its new job! You are in essence, imbuing the object with your own power; corresponding herbs, oils, objects of your intent; and sealing it with a spell that is heard, as you know in the Universe and goes to the ear(s) of your God/Goddess for provision.
Enchantments are EASY and, more importantly, POWERFUL talismans of magick. They are easy to do, and just about anything can be enchanted.
So, with your items in front of you, light your incense and tealight, (open your circle and ground/protect yourself if this is your custom). This object you have chosen will be a PROTECTIVE TALISMAN for your family, your pets, your home, your property, your car…everything associated with where you abide….to keep you and yours SAFE during the Autumn Seasons. This is a WARDING agent. It wards evil and things that don’t belong there and keeps them away.
1. Lay out your altar cloth on a clean table
2. Sit down in front of table where your object is. Close your eyes and visualize white light around you protecting you and cleansing you from head to toe. Stay with this visualization until you feel good about it. Then open your eyes.
3. Hold the object in your dominant hand (the one you write with), or if it is too big (as in the case of a pumpkin or scarecrow for the front yard, lay your dominant hand on it, and blow your breath on the object.
4. Once you blow on your object, say these words:
This object is keenly chosen by me,
To protect me and my family.
Ward my property well and protect us true,
Under the Midnight Stars and Skies of Blue.
Protect this family, I enchant you tonight,
‘An harm it none, keep us safe from fright.
By the Magick of Harvest Home, this spell is spun,
As I will, So Mote it Be, ‘An harm it none.
7. Now, take your hand off of the object. Visualize the object taking on a “life force” of it’s own (I.e., if you use a scarecrow for example, visualize it coming to life and watching over your neighborhood and home at night. If you use a gemstone, visualize it forming an “all-seeing eye” that sees and knows any threat that you come across and protects you from harm…) Once you have the visualization down, then say repetitively (at least 3x):
I add my intent to make you real,
With my words I enchant you to do my will.
8. After you are done with the chant, close your circle if you cast one, and place your object in a front and center place of stature in your home or outside in your front yard to keep you safe during the Fall Season. If it is a wearable item, wear it as often as possible. When not being worn, keep it in a dish in your front entry (on a front entry table, etc.)
That’s it! You now have an honestly enchanted object to help protect you and your family this Fall!
Now to our Samhain Protection Spell Ritual!
In getting ready for your Ritual, you will need the following items:
* Black Sand or Black Salt
*Bag of Glass Beads (with white, black and purple in them)
*Bell (any size)
*Candy (8 small pieces total)
* a quiet place, not to be disturbed
* an incense that you really like that helps you calm down
* a pre-ritual shower (if so desired) to get the days’ negativity off of you
* a lighter
* a tealight holder (for the tealight candle, or a piece of heavy duty foil underneath the tealight to protect your surface)
Now…we’re going to set up your altar (the place where you will be doing your ritual) –
~ Lay out a black altar cloth or any color you prefer
~ Put the tealight holder to your right on the altar (or foil if that’s what you’re using)
~Place your incense holder (if you are using incnense) to your left upper corner
~ ~Take the black sand, and go outside and sprinkle the black sand around the perimeter of your entire property. Best to do this as evening is approaching. Then go inside.
~ Take the white salt and go into the 4 corners of your house (whichever rooms those are, and throw a pinch of salt into each of the farthest 4 corners of your house and one pinch at the front door, one pinch at the back door (if you have side doors, do it there too. But do the 4 corners of the house first.
~Stand in front of your altar and close your eyes and visualize the salt beaming up like crystal beams all around you protecting you during your ritual. Stay with this visualization till you feel it takes within you.
Once you have felt the light around you and you are calm and breathing deeply, then sit and go ahead (either perform your circle casting, calling elements, etc. ONLY IF YOU WISH) and light your tealight candle and your incense.
“I call upon the Ancient Ones,
To help me with this spell to be spun.
Protect me now as I say my heart,
Keep all evil away so this Spell can start.”
By now, a bit of wax pool should be forming on the tealight candle. Take a good pinch of the garlic granules (organic) and sprinkle on top of the tealight. Seeing a couple of tiny sparks is an excellent sign. Do another pinch if you wish, just not so much as to burn the candle out.
Take your bell and while sitting or standing, shake the bell in the top left corner of your altar, then the top right corner, then the bottom left corner and then the bottom right corner and lay it down. A bell clears out negativity from you, your aura, and the room space. The garlic in the candle keeps evil and entities you do not wish to be there, away; along with the salt and sand you spread out earlier.
Sit and Breathe in the scents. Focus.
Remember: your intent for this
Spell is PROTECTION.
With PROTECTION as your focus, take your pouch.
Place the pouch over the tealight (but obviously without letting it get burnt) and let the scent of the garlic infuse into it for a minute or so. As you do this, visualize protection and safety for you and your family.
~Next, take the black string and tie 4 knots into it as equally spaced out as you are able. While doing this, say:
“4 Knots for Protection At Its Best,
These 4 knots shall be put to the Test.
Protection comes our way today,
And stays with us through New Year’s Day.”
(at which time, you should re-do another New Year’s Protection Spell.)
~Place the string into the muslin pouch.
~Place Two white beads into the pouch and say:
“These beads show what will take place
To trespassers who harm us in our space.”
Place the black beads in and focus on the black absorbing all negativity or ill wishes that may be sent your way from anyone.
Place the purple bead in while visualizing the love of God / Goddess & the power of Good.
Place the remainder of the garlic in the pouch.
Take the sequins and put 4 into the pouch. Sprinkle the rest around your altar or a candle in your home (this ties the home to the pouch.) While doing this, focus on the richness of your family’s lives together, your love, and that all negativity will be absorbed.
Eat 4 candies
Put 4 candies into the pouch.
Hang the pouch by a door,
Or keep on your person or purse.
“Protection is Spun, It is Here…
It shall last ‘till the New Year.
Thank you for the Bounty I See,
That you have given me & my family.
So mote it be.”
You can now close your circle, release the quarters/elements, etc. (if you chose to do that), or simply clean up your space, thank your God/Goddess (or both) as in the spell above and put your pouch where you would like it. Throw away any items not necessary to keep, and feel free to keep the bell for future spells (preferably of the same nature.) The candle and incense should be let to burn out completely or you may snuff them out when you are done.
You may choose to use either the enchantment spell OR this spell OR both to help protect you and your home this Fall Season. Think of other ways you can make and enhance protection for you and your loved ones this Fall.
