|In the dark of winter, we see the harsher side of the world. The shadows lie sharp on the snow; the light flares on the ice. Challenges come upon us. It helps to have protection-but you don't want to let the dark side of your emotions rule you. So put up a shield to deflect negative energies.
For this spell, you'll need a holiday ornament covered in mirrored tiles (easily found at this time of year) and four silver or white candles.
Light the candles and hang the ornament between them. Visualize yourself surrounded by flashing, dizzying mirrors on all sides and say:
Hall of mirrors in the mind
No malicious force shall find
Any path to my ill cost
But shall be waylaid and lost
Keep the ornament in a window, or hang it on a holiday tree if you wish.
