It’s the birthday of Aldo Leopold, American ecologist and author born in 1887. Honor his legacy and strengthen your own magics with a charm for Earth and home protection.
You’ll need a piece of natural material (round or square) about six inches across. Neutral-colored cotton or linen cloth, leather, or a piece of birch bark would work well. Use a pen or marker to inscribe a pentagram in the center of the material. Place a combination of the following protective herbs on the pentagram: rosemary, juniper, mugwort, wormwood, or yarrow. Use freshly picked herbs if possible. Add a pinch of sea salt and at least one of these protective stones (use a small one!): agate, obsidian, fluorite, or another stone of your preference.
Gather up the sides of the material, forming a small bundle, and tie with a green ribbon or thread of natural material. Walk the bounds of your property deosil (sunwise) while holding the charm, then bury it at the northern edge.
