The purpose of this spell is to influence protection against any attacks targeted on one’s gender identity and/or sexual orientation. You are valid, and you are safe.
Materials: a jar, a small bowl, rosemary, thyme, rose petals, chamomile, mint, red jasper, a sigil, a candle and anointing oil(for 1a) and/or a slip of paper and pen (for 1b). Optional: a personalizing material, such as a lock of hair or a slip of paper with your name (for 5b).
There are two different versions of step one. You can choose to do just one or you could do both. However, if doing both, complete step 1a before step 1b.
1a. Carve your sigil into your candle. I personally chose a white candle because white represents purity and healing. Anoint the candle with oil while meditating on the focus of the sigil. Light the candle and continue the spell beside it.
1b. Write your sigil on the slip of paper. Put it along the inside wall of the jar so that it is facing out, the sigil acting as a shield of protection, or for a larger jar one may fold it up and place it in the bottom for a solid foundation.
2. Put the rosemary, thyme, rose petals, chamomile, and mint in the small bowl one by one.
Rosemary for courage, strength, happiness, healing, protection, and releasing negativity.
Thyme for healing and releasing negativity.
Rose petals for love, confidence, and healing.
Chamomile to soothe and relax. Mint for protection and soothing.
3. Crush together the materials in the bowl with your fingers. As you break them down, visualize the process as breaking down your problems.
4. Put the crushed materials in your jar.
5. Add red jasper, for stability and emotional equilibrium. You may add as much or as little as you want.
5b. Optional: To help link the spell directly to you, you could add a personalizing material, or effectively a piece of yourself, so the spell will hold it’s effect on you even when it is not with you This could be a lock of hair or your name on a slip of paper, for example. I personally didn’t add one because my jar is a necklace that I will be wearing regularly.
6. Close your jar. If possible, seal it using the wax from the candle.
At this point you may put out the candle or leave it to burn. I personally chose to let it burn a while longer (though unfortunately not long enough to melt the sigil because I have familial obligations and I can’t leave a candle unattended).
Don’t forget to put out your candle and don’t leave it unattended!
Now the spell is done! Once again, the purpose of this spell is to influence protection against any attacks targeted on one’s gender identity and/or sexual orientation. You are valid, and you are safe.
Try to stay strong, everybody!
