Ward

|

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. 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. These wards must be maintained by a periodic repetition of the warding spell or charging of the symbolic warding object.

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