On the seventeenth day of Yule the Goddess gave to me... The Tower
Upheaval and sudden change, crisis, releasing all emotion, suffering a blow to the ego, revelation and seeing through illusions. 17th December Change happens...FACT...sometimes you don't like it, quite often it turns out to be for the best...whatever way you've got to deal with it. Part of change can also be about seeing through illusions and gaining clarity about a situation and then making those changes yourself. We can all get caught up in the illusions that life creates around us, it is beneficial to clear rub your eyes and see things as they really are...it can help you to make decisions and move forward. It might be an illusion created by another but we are also very good at creating illusions for ourselves...
Candle spell to dispel illusions
A white candle is excellent for this one, you can dress the candle with herbs such as eyebright or rosemary and use any crystals that you are drawn to such as amethyst or clear quartz.
You will also need a small piece of paper, draw four open eyes, one in each corner of the paper (it doesn't have to be a perfect drawing).
Place the candle on top of the paper and light the candle.
Focus on the candle flame and ask that any illusions are dispelled and that truth and clarity are shown to you.
When you are ready thank Deity, the Divine or the Angels and allow the candle to burn out safely.
