Intent: To find a companion or friend with whom to share your life (not necessarily romantic).
Ideal Timing: Waxing Moon
Cup of water
An apple of any color
A bowl of any shape
Fill a cup with water and set to the side of the bowl. In small increments, core the top of the apple- regularly checking to make sure that the tealight fits without being too loose or too low. When the top of the tealight sits flush with the top of the apple, stop.
On four sides of the apple paint the silhouette of a frog in gold. If you have no great artistic skill, writing the word “FROG” on each side of the apple in golden paint shall suffice. Allow the paint to dry on the apple while you paint a circle in the center of the bottom inside of the bowl. Allow it to dry as well.
Once all the paint is dry, place the tealight inside the hole you cored in the top of the apple. Place the apple in the bowl so that it stands erect with the tealight at the top. Light the tealight and fill the bowl with the water from the cup you gathered earlier.
Place the bowl somewhere safe away from any curtains or other flammable materials, then turn off all the lights. Sit before the bowl and meditate on the candle flame while thinking of the qualities you want in a platonic companion.
When finished, blow out the candle. Repeat every night until the time that the apple begins to spoil, refreshing the candle when necessary, until you are satisfied.
