Here’s a little spell: Take a shoe box, a silver candle, and a silver ribbon. Put together symbols of what you are wishing for in your life. For example, if it’s a new job, you could put together some Monopoly money, a miniature briefcase, and a doll decked out in a career outfit. On the night of a full moon, put those items in front of you and light the candle. Focus on your wish and put the items in the box, saying your wish out loud. Then tie the ribbon around the box and hide it in a place only known to you. Keep it secure until your wish becomes realized.
