Note: This spell will only work if you actually study and
TRY to do well (or if you happen to naturally be a genius like me
(Starwitch). Do not expect the spell to get you good grades when you haven't
even tried to learn the material!)
I did this before my Chemistry AP last year, and I got a 5
on it, so I believe it worked!
You will need:
1 Yellow candle
1 Green candle
1 piece of yellow ribbon, or yarn, or thread, or pipecleaner
1 piece of green ribbon, or yarn, or thread, or pipecleaner
1 piece of orange ribbon, or yarn, or thread, or pipecleaner
oil (such as cinnamon) made for luck, or success
If you cast a circle during spell work, you can do this now. I didn't at
the time, due to it being pretty late at night and my mind was full of
chemical equations. Light first the yellow candle, then the green. Make
sure there's enough room to work between the two.
Ask whatever God/desses you wish to enter the circle with you (your
patrons, the Lord and Lady, whatever you believe in). Take the three
pieces of ribbon/yarn/thread/pipe cleaner (all long enough to make a
bracelet for) and begin to braid them. The yellow, for intelligence and
clarity; the green for luck; and the orange for success. As you braid
them, you can imagine symbols of studying, intelligence and remembering
being thread in as well. (For example, I thought of most of my polyatomic
ions, a book, a brain...)
Ask the God/dess (es) to help you for your test, and help for your
studying. Ask them to help you remember all you can, and to make studying
easier (either by silence, which I needed in my house with three younger
siblings participating in screaming contests, or by finding time in hectic
schedules). I'm not going to put down what I said 1) because I'm one of
those firm believers in putting a little of yourself into the spell, and
2) because I have no clue what I did say...it was something from my heart
and spur of the moment.
Once you finish braiding, run a little of the oil over the place where you
will tie it, and tie the bracelet (or anklet I suppose) around your wrist
(ankle) and wear it when you study and during your test.
If anyone tries it, please tell me how it goes! I hope it goes well!
