Well here we are in the month of June! The Wheel of the year is turning and Litha approaches. It’s hard to imagine that half the year has almost flown by!
One of the things about June that those of us who live along the East coast of the US and especially here at Basecamp is the fear of Hurricanes!!!
After you have taken proper mundane precautions to make sure your home and property is protected you can do something magical as well!
I am reprinting some advice from one of my favorite ladies – Ann Moura about how we can protect ourselves in the event of a Hurricane warning.
This excellent spell comes from her book, Grimoire for the Green Witch: A Complete Book of Shadows (Kindle Location 2622). Kindle Edition.
Her first advice is:
“Change another's Spell slightly so it is yours: to make the energy generated recognize that it comes from you and your will, so that it connects to work with you specifically.”
This is very important. In order to be effective, you must change the spell ever so slightly to make it your own. Put your energy into it. I can’t stress this enough!
For this spell you may find it helpful to address the Elemental Winds by raising the completed spell materials to each Quarter to energize spell:
-North wind for physical actions
-East wind for new beginnings and mental actions
-South wind for power and vigorous actions
-West wind for cleansings and emotional actions
Alright, is everybody ready? Here we go!
Perform during: anytime there is threat of a hurricane.
You will need: a sharp knife [not your Athame].
Spell casting: take knife in hand and go outdoors, facing the direction from which the wind is blowing. Wave the knife overhead three times in a great circle while saying: I call upon thee, Elementals Air and Water! Go wherever ye please, But stay thou far away from me! Throughout the oceans ye may roam! But nowhere near to my own home! For kith and kin are thee to me, That As I Will, So Mote It Be!
Thrust the knife into the ground while envisioning that the winds will be "split" and not come near. After the danger has passed, retrieve the knife and rinse it off.
