"We all need a bit of a confidence boost on occasion - this ritual will help give your self confidence and self-esteem a big ole kick in the butt" - Rachel Patterson


You will need:

Representations for the four quarters, if using

Central candle for deity, if using

Matches or lighter

Safe holders for the candles, if using

Something to eat and drink


For the spell:

A large mirror

A crystal or pebble, one that represents confidence to you (I suggest

moonstone, labradorite, jasper, bloodstone, or moss agate)

A candle, colour of your choosing, one that best represents

confidence to you


Cast the circle

Walking deosil (clockwise) around the circle


With the power of the Moon

I cast this circle to attune

Magic creating a boundary to last

This Moon circle is now cast


Call the quarters

Facing North

I call upon the element of earth
