(1) Invoking the Household Gods (Ball 67)
This ritual is best performed during the waxing Moon. It could be considered a kind of birthday party, so fee free to include food and drink as part of it, if you so wish.

YOU WILL NEED
  • An incense that reminds you of herbs, forests and green growing things.
  • A green candle in a holder
  • Your wand
  • Small statues of deer or other forest animals
  • Pine cones, ivy, holly, or something similar
  • Symbol appropriate to your guardian (e.g. a crescent moon for the Moon Goddess)

METHOD
Decorate the area around the symbol of your guardian with the greenery. Clean the guardian symbol so that there is no dust or dirt on it. If the symbol is small enough put it on the altar, otherwise leave it nearby.

Light the incense and candle. Stand before your altar and say:
        
        Guardian spirits, I invite you to join me at this altar.
        You are my friends and I wish to thank you.

Take the incense and circle the guardian symbol three times, moving clockwise and say:

        Thank you for the help you give to keep this home clean and pleasant

Move the candle clockwise around the symbol three times and say

        Thank you for the light you send to purify this space and dispel the darkness.

With the wand in the hand you consider most powerful, encircle the symbol again three times clockwise and say

        I now ask for your help and protection for me, my family and all who live herein. I ask that you remove trouble makers of all sorts, incarnate and discarnate. I thank you for your love and understanding. 
        
Stand with your arms upraised. Call upon your own deity and say:

        [Name of Deity] I now invoke the guardian of this household whom I have invited into my home. I honor it in this symbol of its being. I ask a blessing and I add my thanks for its protection and friendship.
        
If you have more than one guardian, pluralize. Spend a few moments lovingly caressing the symbol, sending out the thought that the guardian is important to you. Be aware of the subtle changes in atmosphere which occur as the protective spirits become part of your environment. Finally, thank the unseen participants. 

(2) St. Joseph Spell for Purchasing/Selling Houses (Feng Shui Tip of the Day)

If you're trying to sell some real estate, bury a statue of St. Joseph, upside down or head first, in the 'Helpful People' area of your yard and then wait to see if you can swallow the success of your own sale! Believe me, from everything I hear, the almost immediate results are heavenly!
