In Slavic mythology, all homes have a Domovoi, who is the soul of one (or all) of the deceased members of the family, making the him a part of ancestor worship traditions. Traditionally living at the threshold under the entrance, in the attic, or mainly in the hearth or behind the stove, everyone took care to not disturb the smoldering remains of a fire to keep their ancestors from falling through the grate.
Many superstitions are associated with broom and its use. In my Ukrainian family, nobody swept after dark, some believed it brought bad luck but it was also thought to insult Domovoi who are very active at nighttime. Someone who is desperate to find a husband would jump 9 times back and forth over a broomstick. Most brooms were never used to whip children or domestic animals – children were believed to stop growing if beaten with a household broom (in Slavic beliefs brooms used for sweeping, accumulate physical and spiritual dirt, and beating a child or an animal with it would mean to pass all that negativity onto it). Old brooms could not be disposed of at any place where people or animals could step on them by accident; they also were not allowed to be burnt in a stove, as it was believed to attract natural disasters, household pests, and domestic arguments (again, burning negativity in the hearth where the food is prepared is not considered very safe). As brooms do tend to accumulate negativity over time, especially those used for cleansing and banishing, it makes perfect sense they need extra care when being disposed of.
Throughout ages, brooms were used in Slavic feminine magic in rituals of attraction or banishing. A common broom, if made or purchased with a specific intent, may become a magical talisman, a protective charm, and a very important ritual tool used in household, fertility, and healing magic.
A happy Domovoi is a friendly one, if the spirit is satisfied & on good terms with the household, it acts as it’s guardian, helping with chores, feeding the animals & protecting the residence from robbers. They are protector and soul of the house. He is the one who cares about the prosperity, that no one is quarrelling or getting sick, and that bad people and impure forces aren’t harming the owners. This one wants to bring luck and prosperity to your home. A broom is an object that has magical properties, a weapon against damage and witchcraft. This old house spirit loves families with whom they can live in perfect harmony, and who diligently treat them kindly. The ladybug is the symbol of heavenly and ardent love.
