Moon in Gemini or Capricorn. Month of August. Waning moons. On bright, sunlit days.
Gather a piece or paper, one gray crayon, one bright crayon (orange-yellow is good), matches,
and a small item to represent yourself (perhaps a pebble). On the left side of the paper write in
gray the word "doubt", and draw a cloud over the word. On the right side, use the bright crayon
to draw a sun with the word "assurance" underneath it. Then lay the paper before you, placing
the symbol of self on the left side. Slowly, while repeating the phrase,
"From doubt to certainty, light to mark my way.
Misgivings be gone, I'm seizing the day."
Move the stone across the page until it sets firmly on the word "assurance".
Next, take a deep breath and tear away the left side of the paper, releasing your breath as you
finish tearing. Burn that side to literally destroy you doubt. Wrap the remaining paper around the
stone or object and carry it to encourage confidence every day.
