Of all childhood pastimes, wishing is one that most people Remember fondly. The enchanting thing is that many traditional Wishes are actually folk spells. Think of wishing on the first star appearing.
The accompanying rhyme Is actually an incantation! Tossing a coin in a well with wishes can also become a magical
procedure just by adding a verbal component or visualization. This particular spell combines the coin with starlight For easy recognition for the child.
Find any silver- colored coin with the child's birth year on it. Have him/her take it out at dusk and wait for the first star to appear. As it does, have him/her hold the coin up to the starlight saying:
Catch the starlight in this coin so bright
I'll get the wish I wish tonight.
Within this coin my wish is carried
The Magic will grow when it is buried.
Have the child put the coin in an area of rich soil where it will remain undisturbed so the spell can grow to manifestation.
