San Martin Caballero Money Amulet



Needed:
1 old rusty horseshoe
Red string, yarn, or embroidery floss
San Martin prayer card
Money oil
A piece of cardboard, 5 x 7
Three new quarters
Sequins, glitter and other decorations
San Martin candle

Procedure:
Wrap the entire horseshoe from end to end with red embroidery floss. You can also use red yarn or any kind of red string but I think the finished item looks much nicer when wrapped in floss. Leave about an inch of the horseshoe unwrapped on each end. When you’re done wrapping the horseshoe secure the ends so that it doesn’t unravel. You might want to put a dab of glue over the knots for extra security.

This amulet will be use to hang on the wall in the direction a “U” would be written. The bottom of the amulet is the curved part of the horseshoe and the top of the amulet will be the part with the two ends.

Now take the prayer card and attach it to the center of the cardboard backing. The reason I suggest to use the cardboard backing is because the prayer card is not large enough or wide enough to fit onto the center opening of the horseshoe...the backing is the perfect size. Now attach the cardboard backing with the prayer card to the back of the horseshoe opening, in between the two ends.

Attach the three new quarters around the prayer card.....one at the top and two at the bottom. This would be a good time to decorate the cardboard that’s showing and to make the amulet a little more decorative. Some ideas for decoration could be glitter, sequins, nuts, roots, stones, small crosses, beans, or grains.

Once that’s finished, burn a candle to San Martin and ask for his blessings on this amulet. Take the amulet and dress it with the money oil....one drop on the very center of the horseshoe at the point of the curve....and one drop on each end. Place the amulet in front of the candle and leave it there until the candle is consumed. Hang it over the main entrance of your home or business.

You often make reference to certain oils. In this case it is money oil. Where do you get these oils?

Prayer cards have a picture of a saint on one side and a prayer to the saint on the other. They are normally sold with a plastic coating for protection. Usually people keep them in the pocket or purse but they are often used in spellwork. So this card is a prayer to San Martin Caballero (St Martin of Tours)
