Color of the day: Gray
Incense of the day: Rue

For this spell, assemble:

One new pair of garden clogs
Sea salt water for cleansing
Patchouli oil for anointing
Four cups birdseed
A towel for drying

Carefully wash the clogs in sea salt water, and encourage any negative, lazy, or unlucky energy to depart from them. Gently dry them with a clean towel. Next, anoint the top, bottom, toe, heel, and either side of each clean clog with patchouli oil to bless them as vehicles of wealth and growth. Finally, fill each clog completely with birdseed, and leave them in the garden overnight to be blessed by the fairies and creatures of Mother Nature. The next morning, scatter the seed along the garden paths to ensure graceful gardening and a fruitful path ahead.
