|Midnight is the time of witches. Marking liminal space between night and morning, it provides opportunity for powerful magics and for potent dreams that teem with messages and import. Before going to bed, wash your hands and face and anoint your forehead with a dab of lavender essential oil. Then, slip into bed and incant the following acrostic spell three times, closing your eyes as you whisper the final few words.
"Wonder where I'll be tonight,
In the silent land of nod.
Taken there by heavy eyes
Closed against the hours long.
Here the dreams come quick and wise,
Invented tales and mysteries spawned.
Night's denizens, their wits belied,
Gathering threads of stories long.
Hovering now, the dreams rely
On whispered shadows, fragile song.
Until the cloak of night's disguise
Renders light, the coming dawn."
When you wake the next morning, write down the details of your dreams and meditate on their meaning.
