What is a Ward & How it’s Used

Last Updated:


By Morningbird

Noun: A ward is a protection or guardian. It may be maintained by a spell, a talisman, a symbol or some other physical or energy object.

How it’s a Ward Used?

Wards may be temporary, such as those put in place to mark the barriers of a magick circle and then taken down upon completion of a ritual.

Or a ward may be a more permanent magickal structure, such as those placed on the boundaries of a piece of property.

A periodic repetition of the warding spell or charging of the symbolic warding object must maintain these wards.

Verb: To place a protective spell on a person, place or object.
