Magickal Activity for New Year’s Eve
You will need a helium-filled balloon for each participant, string, and a small square of paper. Each balloon chosen should be a color that reflects the individual’s desire (see the following chart below).
Red: Courage, strength, and power
Gree: Money, luck, and personal goals
Pink: Friendship and love
Orange: Attaction and action
Blue: Creativity and peace
Black: Protection and release
Yellow: Selling and communication
White: Spiritual and psychic awareness
Ten minutes before the hour of midnight, each person writes a wish on a small square of paper. Using the string, attach the paper to the balloon. At the stroke of midnight, each participant chants the following and then releases a balloon:
“Float now free, Bring to me, What I wish. So Mote It Be!”
Once the balloon has been released, it is best not to dwell on the wish but to let it go so that it will manifest.
The New Year has always been looked to with great anticipation and celebration. In the past, New Year’s festivities were supposed to ward off the barrenness of Winter and insure the fertility of Spring
