Invoking the Household Gods


Pine cones, ivy, holly, or something similar -Symbol appropriate to your guardian (e.g. a crescent moon for the Moon Goddess)
Small statues of deer or other forest animals
An incense that reminds you of herbs, forests and green growing things
Green candle in a holder
Your wand


This ritual is best performed during the Waxing Moon. It could be considered a kind of birthday party, so feel free to include food and drink as part of it, if you so wish.

Spell Casting

  • Decorate the area around your guardian symbol with the greenery and small statues.
  • Clean the guardian symbol so that there is no dust or dirt on it.
  • If the symbol is small enough put it on the altar, otherwise leave it nearby.
  • Light the incense and candle. Stand before your altar and say: Guardian spirits,
    I invite you to join me at this altar.
    You are my friends and I wish to thank you.
  • Take the incense and circle the guardian symbol three times, moving clockwise and say: Thank you for the help you give to keep this home clean and pleasant.
  • Move the candle clockwise around the symbol three times and say: Thank you for the light you send to purify this space and dispel the darkness.
  • With the wand in the hand you consider most powerful, encircle the symbol again three times clockwise and say: I now ask for your help and protection for me, my
    family and all who live herein.
    I ask that you remove trouble makers of all sorts,
    incarnate and discarnate.
    I thank you for your love and understanding.
  • Stand with your arms upraised. Call upon your own deity and say: [Name of deity] I now invoke the guardian of this
    household whom I have invited into my home.
    I honour it in this symbol of its being.
    I ask a blessing and I add my thanks for its
    protection and friendship.
  • If you have more than one guardian, change the ‘its’ to ‘their’ and so on. Spend a few moments caressing the symbol, sending out the thought that the guardian is important to you.
  • Be aware of the subtle changes in atmosphere which occur as the protective spirits become part of your environment.
  • Finally, thank the unseen participants.
