House blessing with Ace of Cups

Today a dear friend asked about a simple ritual of our old superstitions to bless, guard and preserve the house and property in these moments of pandemic danger. There is actually something quite old and easy to do. I remember my old aunt doing this.
In many italian regional playing decks the Ace of Cups often represent the House. So to bless it, take a handful or more of blessed sea salt, put inside the Ace of Cups card and wrap it with a rosary. Recite three Paternosters, Ave Mariae, Gloriae and eventually add any other prayer to your Saints of devotion. Then sprinkle the house corners with the salt. God bless You.
