A sample of your diary may be as follows:-

Purpose: To attract a lover.

Time: Full moon in Aries (the sign ruled by Mars, the red planet), Tuesday.

Alter decorations: Red cloth, red roses in red vase, red candle, and picture of the person with qualities you want or list of qualities. Two white alter candles plus the symbols of the elements are always used. Elemental symbols (Earth: Pentacle, money or salt. Air: Feather or fan. Water: Chalice or dish of water. Fire: Incense).

Results: Met someone after two weeks. New moon visible.

Specific rituals

A candle ritual for healing of depression could include a blue cloth, dark blue candles, done at the waning moon. For a new venture: A green cloth and candle, at the new moon. Success in an established business would be preferable at the full moon in Virgo (harvest moon). For new friends: A new moon in Taurus, using pink candles.

To rid you of negative attitudes or people secure a black candle in a black cauldron or dish. Fill with water until about two inches of candle is showing. Dim the lights, or turn them off and have 5 white candles light at equal space around the room. Close your eyes and visualise the negative energy being absorbed into the flame of the black candle, while the white candles protect and empower you. Allow the candle to burn out naturally. As the water extinguishes the flame, so the negative energy also is extinguished.

Make sure you are in a draught free position. After setting up your altar, light your candles. Close your eyes and visualise or concentrate on your needs or desires coming to you as clearly as you can. It should be done for at least 10 minutes. The candles should either burn out naturally or snuffed out with a proper candlesnuffer, but never allow the candles to be blown out.

I have used these methods for more than fifteen years and have often adapted them slightly to suit my, or my client's individual needs. They do work well if you are sincere in your requests and reasons. Please keep in mind that the practitioner (you) must take full responsibility for each action that is for greed or desire.
