|Today marks the halfway point of the year. Where are you in terms of everything you wanted to accomplish? A little behind, maybe? Time hard to find? Whenever you need some extra time to finish a project, gather together a yellow candle, a purple thread, and some bergamot oil. Anoint the candle with the oil and set in a holder somewhere it can burn down safely. Run the purple thread between your hands and say the following:
As a spider spins her web
Eternally she'll stretch her thread.
As that thread, let this time be
Stretched as long as I shall need.
By Arachne and Ariadne
And by my will, so mote it be!
Wind the thread around the candle, tie it off, and light the candle. Get to work, and note how much you can get done before the flame goes out!
