Oh, that really is terrible about your home being sold from under you. I think it may be time to start workin' some magic to keep you on your magical little island. There's a traditional Hoodoo spell
to "nail down" your property to keep it from being taken away. That won't work forever, of course, but it could help to keep it at the one-year time frame, rather than four months. That would at least buy you some time to do magic to guide your family to a home you will love as much as this one or more.
At the very least, spellwork gives you something positive to focus on, and keeps you from feeling helpless. (The fact that it can also help achieve real results is useful too!) A good place to start might be to just light a candle on Tuesday (Ostara, the Spring Equinox) and make a prayer that your family will be settled in your new home by the time the wheel of the year turns around again. If you could do this down at the beach you love it would be even better, and you could write your petition on a little piece of paper and set it alight in the flame. If the tide is going out, toss the ashes into the sea and let the waves carry them away.
If you're comfortable doing magic with saints, St. Martha the Dominator
might be the one to help protect your home and guide you to a new one. Starr Casas has a nice St. Martha spell at her Old Style Conjure site
. Mama Starr's prayers are unambiguously Christian, but the form of the spell is easily adaptable. Coincidentally
Tuesday is St. Martha's day, and spells to petition her aid are often done on nine consecutive Tuesdays.
You might want to make your magical petitions to include all eight families displaced by this, rather than for your family alone. Strength in numbers, perhaps, or maybe just generosity, but it seems like a good thing to do.
