Mirror Spell of Protection for the Home
Set up your altar in the following manner:
Place a censer in the center before an image or symbol of the Goddess. Have a 12-inch or so round mirror there as well. Ring the altar with nine while candles and burn a protective incense such as sandalwood, frankincense, copal, rosemary, etc).
Follow your usual way of casting the circle and calling the quarters.
Then beginning with the candle most directly before the Goddess image, say in these or your own words:
Lunar light protect me.
Repeat this as you light each candle until all are lit and glowing.
Pick up the mirror, invoke the Goddess in Her lunar aspect with the following or similar words of your own:
Great Goddess of the Lunar Light
and Mistress of the Seas;
Great Goddess of the mystic night
and of the mysteries;
Within this place of candles bright
And with your mirror nigh;
Protect me with your awesome might
While ill vibrations fly!
While standing before the altar, hold the mirror facing the candles so that it reflects their flames. Keeping the mirror toward the candles, move slowly, doesil (clockwise), around the altar, watching the reflected candlelight bouncing off your surroundings.
Gradually increase your speed, mentally invoking the Goddess to protect you. Move faster and faster (being careful not to let yourself get dizzy), watching the light shattering the air, cleaning it, burning away all negativity and all the paths along which the ill energies have traveled into your home.
Charge your home with the protective light of the Goddess. Continue moving around the candles until you feel that the atmosphere has changed and your home has been cleansed and guarded by the Goddess.
At this point, stand once more before the Goddess image. Thank the Goddess in any words you want. If you are using small tea candles or eye of the day candles, allow them to burn completely. Then close your circle in your usual manner. If you are using tapers, snuff them out (do no blow them out!!!) one by one, bind them together with a white cord and store them in a safe place. You may reuse these candles ONLY if and when you need to perform this same ritual spell again. DO NOT use them for any other spell.
