As we near the cold, dark days of winter, this is a good time to protect your household from theft, fire, and the demons of depression. Be sure you've cleared your house of disorder and unneeded possessions before you begin these spells. Make a garland of sprigs of marjoram and juniper boughs and hang it on your front door to protect you and yours from hostile spirits. A bunch of hazel twigs tied with a woman's hair will protect the house from fire. Keep this charm on your mantle if you have a fireplace, or in a cupboard by the stove if you don't. Prayers for safe-keeping can be written on bay leaves and thrown in the fire for further protection.
