I recieved my first housewarming present yesterday from one of my colleagues! Although (as far as I know) she’s not Pagan or a witch, she does read tarot cards and we’ve had a fair few metaphysical conversations while washing sample buckets. She’s also heard all the ups and downs of my house-hunting and the glorious saga surrounding the purchase of my flat, so after telling her on Friday that the exchange and completion had happened, K came up to me on Monday morning and handed me a paper bag saying ‘I’ve got you a housewarming present’. Inside was a purple sachet with two hefty lumps of gemstone – one amethyst ‘for protection’ and one rose quartz ‘for calm’.
I haven’t decided yet where to put it, as the flat needs some work before I move in, but I think I’ll either hang it by the front door with my broom and my horseshoe, or keep it in the living room where most of the socialising and entertaining will happen.
