Hex Signs


Hex Magic

Using Hex Signs in your magic:

Hex signs are primarily used around the home, farm, or business for protection. You chose the symbols you want to use based on the message you want to convey. You can buy a hand crafted sign or you can make one yourself. This would be a great time to get creative. Paint your own sign on a piece of wood and hang it out side your front door or in your living room or kitchen. You could also buy a stained glass kit from your local craft store and make something to hang in your front window. Remember the more energy you put into your magic the more power it has.
