While modern jack-o’-lanterns ar e made from pumpkins, they were originally made from hollowedout turnips. This spell honors the past and builds strength for the future.
Gather these items:
On a table, place the turnip to the left, with the black candle behind it. Place the pumpkin to the right, with the white candle behind it and the censer (unlit) between the candles. Think of the witches of the past who paved the way for our modern practice. Focus on asking them for guidance and help in advancing your craft. Safely light the black candle, then the white candle and incense, saying:

Grant me guidance and
For highest good, joyous and
Snuff out the candles and incense. Use the turnip and pumpkin as decorations to remind you of ancestor magic.
