Hi I'm 12 and I'm going to a private school next year and I think I have to do a test to get accepted. I'm very worried about this, is there something you can do?
The first 'witchy' advice I can give is to relax and not worry! When you want something too much and try to 'grab it in your fist' so to speak, you can crush it. I mean what can you hold in a closed fist? Much better to open your palm and enjoy the bountiful nature of the universe.
The second is the following spell. It's very good for confidence and getting a favourable outcome to a situation.
Best time: waxing moon (as it grows to full) or the full moon itself. (If you can't at this time, just make sure you do this spell on a Thursday, ruled by Jupiter and the best time to do spells that bring what we need into our lives.)
You will need:
A yellow candle
An orange candle (both for courage)
A handful of currants (blessed by Jupiter for good fortune)
1 green feather (to bring prosperous new energies)
1 lime (confidence and a favourable outcome)
Put seven pins down the front of each candle about 2cm apart.
Stand them side by side and in a circle around them sprinkle the currants in a circle around the candles.
Pick up the feather and stroke both candles (whilst they are unlit) as you say:
"Good blessings come to me
what I need comes to be
I have the skills I have the voice
What is best will be my choice"
Now light both candles, hold the lime and as the candles burn to the first pin say:
"I am proud and worry free
Only the best comes to me"
Then snuff the flames as you say 'So Mote it be"
And repeat the above ritual for the next six days - everything will be fine!
