To determine the correct path to take when faced with an important decision, gather a white votive candle and one thumbtack for each of the potential choices, marking the tacks with a dab of paint, ink, or nail polish to differentiate them. Stick the thumbtacks into the candle, each at the same level, being careful not to crack the wax. Light the candle and say:
For good of all and with true aim,
First tack to fall in magical precision.
Witch’s power and candle’s flame,
Bring to light the correct decision.
As the wax melts, the tacks will loosen, and the first to fall will reveal the best choice.
