Color of the day: Coral

* The Nine of Cups card (the "wish card") from a tarot deck
* A pen
* A sheet of paper
* A stamped envelope
* Symbols of the four elements (for example, a feather for air, a candle for fire, a cup of water for water, and a stone for earth)
* An image of Santa
Meditate on the Nine of Cups card, asking yourself what is it you truly want.
Touch the pen, paper, and envelope to each elemental symbol, saying:
"By (air/fire/water/earth), may gifts
come to me when they are asked for
by my true self."
Begin your letter by writing "Dear Santa," and ask for sincerely desired gifts. Let go of any wishes that are momentary, faddish, or whimsical. Consider what you really want and need. Seal the letter in the envelope, saying:
So mote it be!
Mail the letter to Santa at the North Pole.
