Today is National Cat Day in the United States. Though you may not have a cat of your own, you can connect and work with feline energies during this time. One energy of the cat that you can tap into is that of protection. A familiar works with their witch and looks out for them. Bast is an excellent goddess to work with, and you can call on her for help when you need protection for yourself or others. Create a small representation of Bast to carry with you. You can use clay, as it is easily molded and dries quickly. Focus on Bast as you mold your clay and say:
Goddess Bast, enchant this charm.
