Step 3: Channel the light around you into the gemstone in your hand and visualise it glowing brighter than the sun, then being to chant the following: “Let the truth that I seek reveal itself to me, May what is hidden come into the light, so mote it be”

On the evening of a full moon, form a circle with the index of your dominant hand (right if you are right-handed, left if you are left-handed).
Raise your arm until you can see the moon in the circle thus formed and murmur these words:
Full moon that appears,
Let me foresee the future.
After reciting this sentence, and while continuing to look at the moon, ask a question.
You will receive an answer within 7 days.
Cast a circle your normal way, but with an altar facing to your corresponding direction.
(i.e. October birth=east watchtower) have at hand dragon’s blood, sandalwood and rain mist incense. Burn them as you call upon the Goddess and the God. Explain to them your situation and ask for wisdom, courage, strength, and knowledge to be bestowed upon yourself.
Once you have done this, do a chant of thanks. Thank the Goddess and God for their assistance then close the circle thanking all deities that assisted in your endeavors by making it easier to speak to the Goddess and God. Ensure that you close your circle well.
Sit there and meditate on your request a little longer whilst allowing the incense to burn out naturally. Once this is done thank yourself and the area that was bestowed upon you to allow you to perform such a nurturing ritual.
Open a fresh egg and dispose of its contents. Do not wash the shell. Place the half shell on or in something to secure it. A soft-boiled egg server is perfect, but anything that will hold the half shell and prevent it from tipping over is fine.
Fill the half shell almost to the brim with rainwater. If you have Divining Oil, place a drop or two in the water now. Do not stir. If you have no Divining Oil, place a drop or two of a natural vegetable oil in the water. Once again??do not stir.
Light a single candle and slowly pass it over the eggshell three times, reciting the following words as you do so:
As of the earth
So let it be
That all that I seek
Be shown to me
Put down the candle. Place the tip of your right index finger into the water in the eggshell. Keeping your right index finger in the water, pick up the shell with your left hand and over a sink or some other suitable place, crush the shell while your finger is still in the water. Dispose of the shell. Extinguish the candle.
For the next twenty-four hours, your right index finger will tingle whenever it is near the truth.
Take a fresh banana, red ribbon and a piece of parchment, and reflect upon that which you seek the truth about.
Light a white candle, and clear your mind. Then, on the parchment, write that which you want to know. Fold the paper towards you three times. Then, slice the banana open near the middle, and push the paper into it. Tie the ribbon around the banana to seal it up, and make sure to have a longer strand attached, so you can hang the banana. Say out loud:
“The truth will be shown to me, as I will – So mote it be!”
Hang the banana outside, on a tree – or on a nail outside your front door. When the banana has spoiled, you will know the truth in any matter.
Write the name and full birthdate of your gossiping enemy on a piece of slippery elm bark.
Wrap it in a piece of black cloth and say:
(Name of person) be now silent!
Let your bitter tongue be broken!
(Name of person) be now silent!
Let no evil words be spoken!
SO MOTE IT BE!
Bury the cloth-covered bark in a forest or graveyard at night by the light of a pale
waning moon as you visualize that person unable to speak whenever he or she
attempts to spread malicious gossip about you.
You will need: A tall, deep-blue candle peony or lavender oil and parchment (or paper)
On a waxing moon, anoint the candle with the fragrance of lavender or peony by the purest moonlight.
By this same moonlight – and this light only – inscribe the name of your lover on parchment.
Still by moonlight, use the name-paper as a taper to light the candle.
Place the candle upon a fireproof surface, away from a window or curtain,
and rest while the candle burns low. As you lay down your head that night, ask that your
love be open and honest of his actions; ask that he leave off flirtation and reveal true feelings
for you if he has them. Before a week has passed you will have a sign of his true regard.

Blend and swirl and anoint candle in spell. Wear near the person you want the truth from.
They do not stand a chance of lying so it is so handy to have.
Moon and tide save help me now,
I seek the truth here not yet found,
For underneath the fog there lies,
new possibilities for I,
So let this night be unlike others,
And let the noble show their colors,
And let the meek and cowards run,
For now the moon seeks out her sun,
And by the power that is three,
So as I will it, so mote it be.
A white candle
A picture of the person or just a small piece of paper to put the persons name.
Get the white candle and light it up (at night before you go to sleep) and say:
“To see the truth, to know the way, I cast a spell in every day, buy the power of three,
I conjure thee to give thy truth, unto me.”
Then blow out the candle while saying the persons name you want to put the truth spell on.
In the morning, light the candle again, say the spell again and say the person aloud, then
blow out the candle while saying the persons name…and say it through the smoke of the
candle so it can work.
