I am currently in the process of migrating the content shared here to a series of new websites hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com.

As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

St George's Day Blessing Spell

In many communities, Saint George's Day (April 23 by the Julian calendar, or May 6 by Gregorian calendar) was the day animals were lead out into the field, thus protective, blessing rituals abound. Here's one:

Lead all healthy animals three times around the perimeter of their field, barn or home, always in a sunwise direction.

The person leading the parade carries a lit torch, while the person bringing up the rear holds an open padlock in one hand, the key in the other hand.

After the third round, the animals are lead back into the barn. Turn the key in the lock. Throw the key into a river or stream, while preserving the now permanently locked padlock.
