My fiance and I are moving to a 1br apartment, and starting the move slowly in 2 weeks by placing items in the empty new place. Must be fully moved in by July 25th.
Any spells/tools etc. for moving, blessing the new place or leaving old energies behind etc.? Alas, I have no besom or wand as-of-yet, but I do have an athame and a boline.
Love and light,
Here ya go! This one looks like it fits the bill!
Oh, that’s smart, moving in slowly! Congratulations on your new place! You can smudge the space with sage or palo santo. You can get a smudge stick at any store that sells crystals, Five Below or Wal-Mart. Open the windows or doors first then go all around the rooms with the smoke. Smudge yourself first if you like. You can also burn bay leaves. I go around the exterior three times and sprinkle salt (just a little). To leave old energies behind? I think I would say thank you to your old home and take a few minutes to think of the good memories you had there. You can always introduce yourself to the new house. Bringing a plant or crystal into a new home is a nice way to start. Or play music or kiss, or anything positive vibration.
Congrats on the move, @chaitea43!
Amethyst, Amaris, and Mary have already offered some great advice for you. The House Blessing Prayer shared is a really lovely one!
In addition to what’s already been suggested, you could also place crystals around the new home (bringing balance and harmony to the new space):

If it’s something you are interested in, you may invite a diety or spirit of the hearth and home to move into the space with you.

And at any stage in the moving process, you could do a home blessing ritual. Here is a pretty one:

Wishing you and your fiance all the best with the move, @chaitea43! Good luck and congrats on the new apartment!
Already some awesome responses here!
I noticed you mentioned that you don’t have a besom but did you know you can use your regular ol’ broom? You can sweep the house from back to front and then out the front door, either actually sweeping or energetically sweeping. It will work just the same!
Love the diagram! I collect gems so, this is perfect.
Definitely giving me ideas! And I’m a big incense fan.
Ooh love the sound of the blessing oil. Thank you
Perfect! Thank you:pray:
