One of the best part of being a magician is the chance to help people realize their dreams. I recently completed the piece above, called “Refuge.” The client initially wrote to me:
My husband and I are looking for a home to buy. We live outside of the DC area, and as you can imagine real estate is incredibly expensive. So, we could use a spell to find a great house, at a great price, in a great location…
I love this kind of spell because there’s a clear goal, and yet it’s open enough that the spell can work in many different ways.
After some discussion with the client, I figured out that the most important thing to them was a sense of peace, both in the house itself and in the process of getting it. So far their adventures in real estate have been stressful and demanding, and they want to be able to relax and know they have the right place.
I decided to combine sigils for Change, Good Fortune and Peace into a single symbol. Once the paint was dry I cast several different spells on it. The goal is that it will continue to radiate peace and refuge on the wall of their new home long after the paperwork is signed.
The client wrote back to me when she received it:
The spell banner arrived today.
We LOVE it.
Last night we put in an offer on another house, since our first deal fell through. We are not the only ones making an offer, so when the banner arrived, we placed it on our altar with the house listing sheet and our offer paperwork.
It gives us peace of mind knowing that the spell is doing its work, and that everything will unfold as it should.
I can hardly wait to follow up with her and hear how it goes. Maybe she’ll invite her magician to the housewarming party?
