Home Protection Plaque

This article was written by Llewellyn
posted under Pagan

Items needed:
Clay
Pencil
Inscribing instrument
Sharp knife
Red candle and holder


Visualize your home as a safe, protected environment as you charge the red candle. Light the candle, place it in its holder and set it near your work space. Break off a piece of clay about the size of a golf ball. Knead the clay while visualizing your home as a protected refuge. Form the clay into a ball. Roll it between your hands until the clay forms a fat barrel shape, then place onto your working surface and smooth into a rough square.

Smooth with the fingers until the clay is of an even thickness (approximately one-quarter inch).

Using the pencil, make a hole clean through the clay approximately 1⁄2inch from the edge of the clay. This will be used to hang the protective plaque.

Using the inscribing instrument, draw the runes and symbols on the example graphic below onto the clay. Begin in the center of the square, leaving plenty of room for the rest of the runes.

Draw with power, visualizing your home as a fortress. If you draw incorrectly, simply smooth out the offending symbol or ball up the clay and begin again.

It will be necessary to clean your inscribing tool quite often. Work slowly. Turn the project so that you don’t try to draw these runes upside-down.

The runes in the center of the plaque read: “Guard This House.” The other four symbols are the astrological symbol for Saturn, the planet that rules the home.

When you’ve completed transferring the design to the center of your clay, trim off the right, bottom, and left edges of the clay, leaving a neat square shape (the top edge shouldn’t be trimmed, as it has to be strong enough to support the plaque through its hole by hanging).

Let dry undisturbed for three days. Allow the red candle to burn out. When dry, pass a string or a piece of red yarn through the hole and hang the protective plaque inside your home near the front door while saying these or similar words:

My home is now
a fortress strong;
as day is light,
as night is long;
as long as night
comes after day,
my home is safe
in every way.

Sensitive people have gotten a bum rap. We live in a world that doesn't embrace the values of sensitivity, so we get told that we are weak, unusual, touchy, and hard to please. The sad truth is that we hear these messages in many ways throughout our lives. Even if it is from a well-meaning teacher or parent who tries to "toughen us up," the crux... read this article
