War Water, which draws upon the power of iron, is notoriously used to cast potent hexes. However, what characterizes this Water of Mars is not malevolence but aggressive power. How that power is directed is determined by the spell caster. War water is also used to remove hexes and for basic but potent spiritual protection.
War Water is easy to make. The recipe can be found at the Magickal Apothecary.
Wash all thresholds, doorways, and gateways to the outside with War Water to set up the front line against all evil.
Boil nails or pins in a pan filled with War Water. Allow it to cool, remove the solids (the goal is not to create a literal mine field) and sprinkle the water as a magickal boundary of protection around the perimeter of your home.
Many harmful tricks (spells) are laid by throwing powders in a pathway, burying bottle spells for the victim to walk over, or lifting the victims foot track dirt and working with it in some way.
To shield yourself from anyone doing these things to you, sprinkle black pepper powder or a mixture of black pepper and “Fear Not To Walk Over Evil” powder in your shoes. It is said that your track will be magickally invisible or invulnerable to harm, and even if someone does throw for you or lift your foot track, they won’t be able to affect you in any way. If you keep a silver dime in your shoe, too, and check it every once in a while, you’ll know if someone is laying messes for you because the dime will turn black.

Blessings on this fine machine,
May it’s data all be clean.
Let the files stay where they’re put,
away from disk drives keep all soot.
From it’s screen shall come no whines,
let in no spikes on power lines.
As oaks were sacred to the druids,
let not the keyboard suffer fluids.
Disk full shall be no more than rarity,
the memory shall not miss it’s parity.
From the modem shall come wonders,
without line noise making blunders.
May it never catch a virus,
and all it’s software stay desirous.
Oh let the printer never jam,
and turn my output into spam.
I ask of Eris, noble queen,
keep Murphy far from this machine.

This Protective Blessing Ritual was held on Saint George’s Day (April 23 by the Julian calendar, or May 6 by Gregorian calendar) . In many communities, Saint George’s Day was the day animals were lead out into the field, thus protective, blessing rituals abound.
Lead all healthy animals three times around the perimeter of their field, barn or home, always in a sunwise direction. The person leading the parade carries a lit torch. The person bringing up the rear holds an open padlock in one hand, the key in the other hand. After the third round, the animals are lead back into the barn.
Turn the key in the lock. Throw the key into a river or stream, while preserving the now permanently locked padlock.
This blessing spell for livestock is meant to be performed on St George’s day (April 23 by the Julian calendar, or May 6 by Gregorian calendar) .
Preserve a palm blessed on Palm Sunday (If this isn’t available or appropriate you may substitute a sacred protective plant, such as wormwood or rosemary.)
Place this before a sacred image, together with two whole raw eggs and a pot filled with raw barley.
Light candles before the image. (Some versions of this spell specify a church candle.) Use the flame from a candle to light a torch.
Group all the animals to be protected in a circle.
One person circles around the animals carrying the torch, while a second person sprinkles Holy Water, or another protective water formula onto the animals, using the palm frond, rosemary or wormwood plant.
The animals are then driven to pasture by slapping them with the palm frond, rosemary, or wormwood plant.
When this is complete, throw the palm frond plant into running water. Sow the barley in the ground, and break the eggs on the ground away from your property.

Pow-wow is a unique creole of Christian theology and a shamanistic belief system. It is still practiced in some rural areas of Pennsylvania. In spite of the name, it is not of Native American derivation. It is believed to have been brought over to America by German immigrants who practiced folk-magic.

From Pow-Wows, or Long Lost Friend, by John George Hoffman, , we have a morning prayer to be spoken before starting on a journey, which will save the person from all mishaps.
I (here the name is to be pronounced) will go on a journey to-day; I will walk upon God’s way, and walk where God himself did walk, and our dear Lord Jesus Christ, and our dearest Virgin with her dear little babe, with her seven rings and her true things. Oh, thou! my dear Lord Jesus Christ, I am thine own, that no dog may bite me, no wolf bite me, and no murderer secretly approach me; save me, O my God, from sudden death! I am in God’s hands, and there I will bind myself. In God’s hands I am by our Lord Jesus’ five wounds, that any gun or other arms may not do me any more harm than the virginity of our Holy Virgin Mary was injured by the favor of her beloved Jesus. After this say three Lord’s prayers, the Ave Maria, and the articles of faith.
This spell is used to ensure that your travel will be safe and protected throughout the upcoming holiday season. First, cast your circle and place a map of the area you will be travelling upon your altar. On the map, trace the path you will be taking using a green pen.
When you have finished, retrace the route with a piece of white chalk. As you trace the route with chalk, visualize the white powder as a light of white protection keeping you safe upon your journey.
Next, place small amethyst crystals on the map, along the route you will take. These crystals need not be large and you can place them far enough apart where you don’t need many.
Say the following words:
“Bless our journey and keep us from harm
With light of protection and amethyst charm
Our path be straight and free from strife
Many more adventures left upon my life”
Imagine in your mind’s eye arriving safely at your destination while you take the map and fold it, making sure the crystals remain inside. Finally, wrap a white ribbon around it and tie it off. Keep this as a protection charm with you as you embark upon your journey.
From Simple Magick
Hecate rides a chariot drawn by dragons, symbolizing her dominion over the menstrual process. Other emblems include a broomstick, a flaming torch to light the way through dark passages, and a key that unlocks all doors, gates, and roads including the birth canal.
Petition Hecate for safe, smooth delivery prior to going into labor. In addition midwives may always request Hecate’s assistance, guidance, and protection. The same ritual spell serves laboring women and midwives alike.
- Put thirteen separated but unpeeled garlic cloves on a plate.
- Cover them with honey, lavender honey if at all possible. (You can also infuse plain honey with lavender blossoms.)
- Leave this at a crossroads, preferably at midnight, but at least after dark, either on the final day of any month or during the Dark Moon Phase.
- Murmur your prayers and petitions and go home, without looking back.
If you hear dogs or see them, especially black dogs or lone dogs unaccompanied by people, this is very auspicious (but should not be taken as an invitation to approach a strange dog, if caution suggests otherwise.) Hecate also sometimes manifests in the form of a black cat.
Note: This spell can be used for any project or idea that you are working to “birth” or “bring into the world.” Just be sure that it is something about which you care deeply.

In the most commonly used form of chants, each member of the group repeats the entire verse. However, the “Spinning Mantra” differs in that one member intones the first line of the chant, the next person, the second line, and so on. One note can be used throughout, with the same syllables stressed in each line.
Another variant is to start the Spinning Mantra off, and have the members of the group wander around, stopping briefly in front of each other to chant their lines. This can be very disorienting, but is very effective if performed with a large group.
Try it with this magick chant for power and protection:
“I call upon the Powerful, Cosmic Guardians.
I call upon the Ones who bring Power and Strength to those who believe.
I am a dynamic living Electro-Magnetic Force.
I am Positive.
I have a Strong Will.
I am Fearless – Absolutely fearless!
Nothing can Harm me.
I am the Master of my Destiny.
I Surround myself with a Mental Atmosphere of Protection.
No Harm can penetrate this Positive Armor.
Those would harm me shall be Powerless.
Their negative energy shall return to them a Thousandfold.
I am Strong.
I am safe.
I am Positive,
I am Powerful.
As I say
So shall it be.
This ritual combined with this chant can be very powerful. For best results each participant should have a copy of the chant and a chance to practice their lines. The idea is to repeat the chant over and over allowing the energy to build.
