I’ve shied away from posting spells on this site up until now, for a few reasons.
Those unaware of its true nature and origins – Christian fundamentalists and Wiccans/Neo-Pagans alike – make inaccurate assumptions about witchcraft. These assumptions have long distorted the truth of what it is and is not – a quagmire impossible to remedy with a single post on a little-known blog. While I don’t claim to know everything there is to know about The Craft, I do know it is not many of the things close-minded religious zealots and novice Neo-Pagans think it is. I’ll write more on this topic in the future, but for now I offer this:
Witchcraft is nothing more and nothing less than focused intent united with action. It does not spring from anything supernatural or inherently evil. Christian religions have been practicing it for centuries, though they’ve given it names like prayer and communion.
Contrary to popular Wiccan opinion, witchcraft as we know it today is not ancient – it’s probably less than 200 years old. (Read Dr. Ronald Hutton’s book Triumph of the Moon to learn more).
Also, casting a spell you find on the internet or within the pages of that book you bought at Barnes & Noble won’t yield the results you desire unless you invest personal time and energy. (That is, more than using a search engine or handing the clerk your debit card).
Disclaimers behind us, here is a short and simple spell I use regularly to focus protective energy on my pentacle necklace. It can be adapted as you wish and can be used on any type of jewelry.
*** *** ***
Holding the pendant in my left hand, I raise it skyward and extend index finger and thumb (tips pointing up) with the other fingers holding the jewelry. (This hand gesture is symbolic of the crescent moon and the Goddess, or the feminine aspect of the Divine.)
“By the grace of the Goddess [insert name of a particular Goddess if you wish]…”
(As you speak these words, perceive the Divine Feminine in any way you wish. Make it real for yourself. Sometimes I see Her face, sometimes I feel Her feminine energy wash over me.)
Moving the pendant to my right hand, I again raise it skyward with my index and middle fingers pointing upward and the other fingers holding the pendant. (This hand gesture is symbolic of the Horned God, or the masculine aspect of the Divine.)
“By the grace of the God [insert name of particular God if you wish]…”
(As you speak the words above, perceive the Divine Masculine in any way you wish. Sometimes I see His face, sometimes I feel His masculine energy.)
“And by my own will, I now don this sacred symbol to protect me from all types of harm – and to illuminate the Path of Power before me. So mote it be!”
As I speak the last part above, I trace an invoking pentagram on the face of the pendant. (Refer to the illustration below. Using your index finger, trace an unbroken line from point 1 to point 5 and back to 1 while visualizing blue-white fire illuminating the path you trace. Blue-white is a protective color, and fire is the element that rules protective magick.)
