Few things are as exciting – or as stressful – as the process of finding and buying a home. Lucky for you, you’re magical! So you can work this spell to magnetize the home that is perfect for you while making the whole process as easy and breezy as possible.
This ritual invokes Hestia, the Greek goddess of hearth and home (seen at right), to work as a matchmaker between you and your residential soulmate – i.e. your dream home.
Perform this ritual on a Thursday when the moon is between new and full.
Red or burgundy candle
Lighter or matches
Good red wine
A wine opener
As spell preparation, sit comfortably with pen and paper. At the top, write, “OUR (or MY) NEW HOME.” Then make a list of all the features and qualities you desire in your home, including how you feel in it, how surprisingly easy it is to find and purchase, and the price range that is ideal for you. As you write, do your best to feel as if you are excitedly describing a place that is already yours. Take your time and write multiple drafts if necessary until it feels just right. Once it’s complete, feel gratitude for this home, again as if it’s already yours.
Fold the paper twice, folding toward yourself both times. Place it in the center of the dinner plate and put the candle on top. Sprinkle a small amount of cloves and vitex around the outside of the candle on the plate.
Light the candle and say:
Hestia, I call on you.
Set the wine glass near the dinner plate with candle. Open the wine and pour a glass. Say:
Hestia, I lovingly offer you this libation.
Radiant goddess, I humbly request that you help magnetize this home into our (my) life.
By your powers of warmth, laughter, sustenance, and safety, please unite us (me) with this home swiftly, perfectly, and in a divine manner.
Hestia, gratitude! For sharing your beauty and blessings! Gratitude!
If you’d like, pour yourself – and, optionally, any loved ones who will join you in the home – a glass of wine. Toast to Hestia and your new home (again, gratefully celebrating as if you’ve already found and purchased it), and drink.
Either way, allow the candle to burn all the way down. For safety purposes, it’s OK if you need to extinguish it and re-light it at intervals over the next few days.
After a few hours have passed, take the wine glass outside and offer its contents to the earth.
