Annual Powwow household protection ritual

Posted by Rob Phoenix on February 7, 2021 at 11:00 PM

As the moon moves into the sign of Capricorn, I realize it’s time to strengthen the protections around my home. This is as much a magical process as it is a spiritual one because we are invoking The Almighty through the means of ritualistic behaviors and actions. In this case, I will be calling on God to protect my home and my property while also protecting my family and all those we lovingly welcome into our home. At the same time, this ‘blessing’ also carries a rider that whosoever enters our home uninvited will face the wrath of God.

To begin, when the waning moon is in the sign of Capricorn (ruled by Saturn) then your work is further blessed. In a secret place, begin praying Psalm 91 while seeing your property and imagining the boundary becoming an impenetrable wall. You will pray Psalm 91 three times. After the third time, you will end with “In the name of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. Amen.”

Next you will go outside and walk the perimeter of your property three times. While you do so, you will pray OUT LOUD (not yelling, but in a conversational volume) for protection on your property, home, family, gardens, crops, animals, vehicles, and so forth. Remember to include your prosperity, your finances, your belongings, and so on.

When you are finished, you will go to the hearth of your home. In many instances, this is the household kitchen. In particular, it is the stove. But this can differ depending on how your family lives. In our home, it is the stove in the kitchen. There you will pray for the Holy Trinity to bless your property with three protections; from God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. You can also ask for blessings upon your physical, mental, and spiritual lives.

When you are finished, this is the end of the Powwow home protection and blessing ritual. You can finalize it by burying an iron nail at each of the four “corners” of your property to seal the protection. My advice is to repeat this ritual once a year on or around the same time each year.
