A Prosperity Charm

To ensure that money will enter the house all year round, take one silver or golden coin for each external door to the house.
The coins will almost certainly be gold or silver coloured rather than actually made of the metals concerned. Then take the same number of circular pieces of paper. Wash the coin(s) carefully under running water for ten minutes and then dray them in a new cloth or tissue. On the paper(s) draw a picture of your family around it draw pictures to represent all the things you need (not want) money for. Remember to include rent, taxes, light, heat, food, transport, pets, etc. Wrap each coin in one of the papers and, if you are able, bury one just outside the threshold of each door. Whilst you are burying the coin(s) say,
“I call upon the Old Gods to help us make the most of opportunities to bring money into this house. May those who life here ever have enough for their needs and commitments. Give each of us the true rewards of our work and may our family be happy and secure in this home. Blessed Be.” Whilst you are doing this, visualize members of the family with coins in their pockets entering the home. If it is not possible to actually bury them, then slip them down a crack at the base of the door, or just under the carpet on the inside. It is important that everyone who enters the house, and all post, must pass over the coins.
“Never give an empty purse, lest both giver and taker be likewise coinless.”
