To do this, simply obtain the candles, and fill a cauldron or a flower pot with soil. I put a candle-carving tool that I made from a nail and a piece of bamboo (I glued the nail into a stiff stalk of bamboo, which creates a handle for it, making it easy to write with) next to it. The nearby Asian grocery store has a package with a few dozen long, thin red candles for $4, which was perfect for this endeavor. Invite your guests to take candles, carve them while focusing on their wishes, and light them - let the candles burn through the night, then bury the leftover wax when all the candles are burned out.
Though this can be done solitarily, it takes on a lot of power when you invite a group to do this spell. Lots of people, wishing and dreaming together, adds more energy to the cauldron. The flame in the cauldron transforms our dreams into realities.
The Cauldron of Wishes - A Yuletide Spell
While we celebrate Yuletide cheer,
Make a wish for the coming year.
Carve a candle with your heart's desire,
Say the spell and light the fire.
As you wish on this candle bright,
Know your wish will come to light.
Carry the dreams into the year so new,
And soon you'll see, they'll all come true.
By the Horned Lord and the Goddess fair,
By fire and sea and soil and air,
By infinite stars and ancient roots,
With love to all, our dreams bear fruits.
