Protect a Doorway


  • Besom or decorative broom (plain, or decorated to match your decor or the current season)
  • Nail
  • Hammer

Hang the besom or broom on the back of the door and say:
"As you hang upon my door,
Remember what a door is for
Letting in and keeping out,
Is what a door is all about.
As we travel on our rounds,
Help us return safely to our grounds.
But whether we're in or whether we're out,
Please keep want and trouble out."

Make the sign of the banishing pentagram on the inside of the door, and the sign of the invoking pentagram on the outside.
