Blessing the Traveler

Color of the day:  White
Incense of the day:  Neroli

The Rural Dionysia was a festival of fertility, travel, and entertainment. People baked phallic bread loaves and poured offerings of wine and water. They traveled from town to town visiting friends. They held games, contests, plays, concerts, and other revelries.

During the modern holiday season, people also travel, so now is a good time for a blessing. For this spell you will need wine or grape juice, plus a bit of ivy, such as a sprig of silk leaves, a metal brooch, etc.

Raise the ivy to the four directions in turn, saying:

For protection against dangers
from the east, from the south, from
the west, and from the north.

Sprinkle a few drops of wine or grape juice over the ivy. Then say:

Dionysus, god of revelry, guard
the traveler along the journey. Let
none be waylaid by mischance and
all reach their destination safely.

Carry the ivy for protection while traveling.
