St Expedite House Charm for Luck

St Expedite oil
Red string, yarn, or embroidery floss
St Expedite prayer card
Small quartz
St Expedite candle

Take the horseshoe (you can find these at most flea markets or antique stores; sometimes feed stores will have them too) and apply the St Expedite oil all over it. Next take the red string and wrap it around the entire horseshoe, starting from one end and ending at the other. When you are finished wrapping the horseshoe make sure to secure the end well so that it doesn’t unravel.

Take the St Expedite prayer card and find a way to attach it to the back of the wrapped horseshoe so that it’s secure. I will usually cut a piece of cardboard large enough to reach both sides of the horseshoe, glue the cardboard to the back of the horseshoe and attach the prayer card to the front of the cardboard. If you use this idea you also have the choice of decorating the visible parts of the cardboard with glitter, ribbon, or any other material. The prayer card should be at the top of the horseshow ends (the horseshoe will be used with the two ends as the top and the curved part as the bottom).

Next take the small quartz crystal and tie some red string to one end and tie the other end of the string to the bottom center of the “U” part on the horseshoe, directly under the prayer card. You don’t want the quartz to hang really should hang down from the horseshoe about 2 inches or so.

When you have this all put together the horseshoe should be hung over the main entrance of your home to attract good luck there. It can either be hung outdoors or indoors, as long as it’s hung above the main entrance to the home. The first day when the lucky horseshoe is constructed you should burn a candle for St Expedite and from then on offer him a candle on the first Wednesday of every month.
