For the waning moon we just had and its powerful banishing properties, I worked a spell to help with protecting a friend of mine and her mother from an unwanted, negative spirit that has followed her around for years.
This particular spirit is quite malevolent and has been named a “demon” by my friend and her mother. It wakes her, hides objects, it has even shown itself to her mother taking form of two cat-like eyes glowing red in the light of dusk.
I’m going to share with you the spell I performed. Please change it to fit your will as not everyone has the same sets of deities, and of course different ingredients will call to you. I will list what I used and also what I could have used but chose not to for reasons that were mostly: I was not able to find them.
What I made was small witch bottles that would sit about the threshold of each entrance into their apartment, as well as one that they would keep on them at all times. The bottles I procured from a dollar store (Ontario,) and the small bags I put them in I have collected over the years or bought from my favorite occult store Odyssey.
-black obsidian (stone)
(Other options: delphinium/larkspur, digitalis/foxglove, geranium, basil, dill, marjoram, parsely, agate, amber, calcite, carnelian, citrine, jet, malachite, onyx, quartz, ruby, tigers eye, turquoise.)
I used an incense picked up from Odyssey called “Home Protection” as well as pulling out the tarot card “Strength” and “The Sun”. “Strength” because it is associated with her zodiac Leo, and “The Sun” because of it’s shining, warm, positive light, that it might provide that to her through these charms.
I then cast my circle by walking clockwise with my two fingers on my right hand pointed out, envision my white light creating a circle, and then expanding to form a translucent dome over me and my work space. I then used my sage smudge stick to smudge my circle and myself, ridding everything in the circle of any negative energies.
I got down to business calling in the quarters.
“I call to the element of Earth, please aid me in this spell and lend me your strength.”
I lit the green candle to the North.
“I call to the element of Air, please aid me in this spell and lend me your wisdom.”
I lit the yellow candle to the East.
“I call to the element of Fire, please aid me in this spell and lend me your courage.”
I lit the red candle to the South.
“I call to the element of Water, please aid me in this spell and lend me your love.”
I lit the white candle to the West. (Traditionally you would use blue but I did not have a blue votive candle when I thought I did, and in this case white is the best substitute.)
I then turned my head to the heavens and asked for the assistance of the two Gods I chose.
“I humbly ask the Norse God Vali, The Avenger, to please lend me your power. Help me avenge my friend *name* of her fears and her peace of mind from the demon that haunts her.”
“I humbly ask the Norse God Vidar, God of silence, stealth and revenge, to please lend me your power. Help me seek revenge and banish the demon threatening and terrorising the life of my friend *name*”
I then lit the Gold candle representing the Gods.
“I light the white candle, to add the power of light and of protection to this spell.”
I lit the white taper candle.
“I light the black candle, to add the power of banishment of negativity to this spell.”
I lit the black taper candle.
I then sat down for a few moments and meditated on the protection that would fall on my friends apartment, the line invisible to the mortal eye but feared by negative spirits knowing that they could not cross, enveloping the bored of each window or door like it was a line of Christmas lights.
“I thank you all for joining me in this circle tonight and lending me your powers. I appreciate all of you and your gifts.”
I then got to work by layering the bottom of each bottle with the black obsidian, fancy jasper and lapis lazuli. Next I ground up all the herbs and using a funnel I poured the concoction into each of the 7 jars. (5 for the doors and windows and one for each person.) Once I had corked all of them I ran each jar through each element. I rolled it in the salt for Earth, passed it through the incense smoke for Air, rolled it through the black candle flame for Fire, and gently dipped it in my water jug for Water saying;
“Earth, Air, Fire, Water. I consecrate this charm for protection and banishment.” and then placed each one in its own bag.
When I was done with all the charms I then gave libation and thanks. Since I was out of wine and cakes (poorly planned on my part, oops,) I mixed a gin drink instead. I first thanked the Gods since they were the last entities that entered my circle.
“I thank you Vidar, for accompanying me tonight. Your presence did not go unnoticed and I thank you for any and all help you chose to offer. Good evening.”
I raised my chalice in the air and took a sip of the gin drink.
“I thank you Vali, for accompanying me tonight. Your presence did not go unnoticed and I thank you for any and all help you chose to offer. Good evening.”
I raised my chalice in the air and took a sip of the gin drink, and blew out the gold candle.
I then turned to each of the four corners and did the same.
“I thank you, element of Water, for lending me your love in this spell of protection and banishment for my friend *name*. Your presence did not go unnoticed. Thank you.”
I raised my chalice to the West and took a sip of the gin drink, and blew out the white candle.
“I thank you, element of Fire, for lending me your courage in this spell of protection and banishment for my friend *name*. Your presence did not go unnoticed. Thank you.”
I raised my chalice to the South and took a sip of the gin drink, and blew out the red candle.
“I thank you, element of Air, for lending me your wisdom in this spell of protection and banishment for my friend *name*. Your presence did not go unnoticed. Thank you.”
I raised my chalice to the East and took a sip of the gin drink, and blew out the yellow candle.
“I thank you, element of Earth, for lending me your strength in this spell of protection and banishment for my friend *name*. Your presence did not go unnoticed. Thank you.”
I raised my chalice to the North and took a sip of the gin drink, and blew out the green candle.
I then sage smudged the circle and myself again, before walking counter-clockwise with my two first fingers on my right hand, seemingly sucked in the dome and the first line I drew in protection. When the circle was gone I simply extinguished the black and white taper candles and proceeded to clean up.
The way that these charms will work is that they will be placed somewhere that her two cats cant get at them, so probably thumb tacked somewhere. In this instance I would like to see them tacked to the top of the window frame so that they are always in view of the night sky, this way they can be charged on every full and new moon without fear or having to take them down.
I wrote this spell down in my Book of Shadows, also including the time I started and stopped the spell (about an hour,) the day of the week, the moon phase and what star sign the moon was in, just for any and all reference.
The charms are going to her tomorrow and I believe they will work, and I can’t wait for her to be more calm in her own home.
Have a blessed night.
