The spell begins with creating a map grid. Print out a map of your area. I did this with a may of Sonoma County, but you could also focus on your town or neighborhood. Determine if you want to use a sacred symbol as your grid or if you'd like to start with simple protective boundaries. If you know of any sacred sites within your grid even better!
Create the charms outlined below and deploy these charms in strategic places according to your grid. Fill in more charms where you feel necessary. Ideally, add charms in places where witches live and can "power" the grid at any time.
Use this grid as a protection boundary, to do spell work, ritual, and planet healing work. The goal is to work with the environment - not against it. I find weather magick highly problematic when we try and force nature.
Again, the specifics of this charm are for fire prevention, therefore it utilizes herbs and objects that are in alignment with fire prevention, lightening prevention, and general protection. These objects can easily be adjusted for rain, blizzards, hurricanes, tornadoes, dust storms, or any other climate disaster (assuming you have time to prepare).
Fire Prevention Charm
For this working you will need:
-Lightening struck wood or Rowan wood that has grown out of a dead tree in small twig sized pieces (this will not be easy to find)
Using a mortar and pestle grind up the mistletoe and redwood bark. (Remember mistletoe is poisonous, don't eat this or use your mortar and pestle for food afterwards.) Wrap the red thread around two of the sticks to make an X shape. Dust the wood hexes with the herb powder. Focus your energy on fire prevention/protection energy. You may want to sing, chant, or tone to seal in your energy.
Deploy the wood hexes strategically in and around your area. Meaning, bury them in the ground in places where they will not easily be uncovered. Charge this grid anytime you feel the need or there is high fire danger.
Connect with other witches - many hands make for lighter work.
