Create a quiet, sacred space for yourself. Somewhere you will be undisturbed and feel comfortable. Set aside about 30-45 minutes to perform this ritual in its entirety, which includes the total candle burning time.
May be performed between the Witch's New Moon and the Full Moon.
Ideally, this should be a part of your home that is for your eyes only. A place where you can continue this ritual without disturbances, interruptions, or extinguishing the candle.
Center yourself and take a few deep breaths.
Remember, you are not 'getting rid' of anything. This is not a banishment, it's quite the opposite. This ritual evokes the energies of Mercury. You are working to improve the areas of your life that the absence or weakness of Mercury negatively impacts. You are working to draw in more Mercurial energies into your life.
Step 1: Pick up 3 candles, slowly roll them between the palms of your hands. Try to get in the mental space of a harmonious, well-planned, and smooth life. Find your inner calm. Allow this energy to permeate through your body, down to your hands, and into the candle. Feel the peace of the moment.
Sit in this energetic harmony for as long as you feel comfortable. You will have an inner knowing when it is time to proceed to the next step.
Step 2: Draw the Mercury symbol (as shown below) on the piece of paper. Gaze at the symbol. Allow your gaze to soften and become out of focus. Breathe. This is an ancient and powerful symbol. One that assists with communication, the legal system, travel, and the fruition of goals.
Step 3: On the back of the image write your ritual statement, for example:
"My court hearing works out in my favor. My attorney and I can convey our case eloquently and efficiently. The judge understands my side perfectly and gladly sides with me."
Step 4: Place 3 Ritual Candles on top of the Mercury symbol, slowly rolling them back and forth across the image. This allows the beeswax to pick up the evoked energies of Mercury.
Step 5: Move the Ritual Candles to the side. Dust about 1/4 teaspoon each of Mercury Retrograde Ritual Blend and Calamus Root directly into the center of the Mercury symbol.
Step 6: Lay the 3 Ritual Candles directly on top of the herbs, gently rolling the candles over the sigil. The Ritual Candles are made entirely of beeswax and are naturally a bit sticky. Some of the Ritual Blend excesses will remain on the symbol, which is perfectly fine.
Summon the feelings and energies of the legal system working in your favor. Clear lines of communication. Helpful people. A general feeling of wellness and predictability.
Step 7: Create a Candle Braid. Gather the three Ritual Candles in your hand, make sure they are lined up evenly. While holding both ends of the candles, gently begin to twist in opposite directions. The motion is similar to wringing out wet laundry. The bottoms (or legs) of the candles should then be untwisted for the last 1/2-1 inch of the candles. The bottoms (or legs) of the candles should be untwisted for the last one inch of the candles. Place on top of the Mercury symbol.
Step 8: While holding the conscious intention of persuading the legal system to rule in your favor, light the candle. Sit in meditation for a moment. Mercury is now evoked. You are now drawing the energy of Mercury into your life. Feel the energy of Mercury wash over you. Allow it to empower and improve your life.
Light the chosen smudge from the flame of the candle. Allow the soft smoke to envelop you and balance your personal energies. Carefully smudge your energy field by holding the smudge bundle about 1 foot over the top of your head. Move it down to your feet, stepping into clouds of smoke. Alternatively, you may sit down and smudge the soles of your feet.
The Ritual Candles only burn 20-45 minutes, depending on the temperature in the room, any possible drafts, and the amount of Ritual Blend used. The candle will extinguish itself in its own pool of wax. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
Step 9: Repetition
Repeat the ritual for two more nights, starting from step 7. Reapply the Mercury Ritual Blend and Calamus Root to the newly created Candle Braid. The same paper should be reused for the length of the retrograde. Placing the new Candle Braid on top of the previously formed pool of wax.
Remnant Disposal: Carry the remnants of this ritual with you to the court hearing, or in the days when you are waiting to hear back about your legal case. Once you receive the verdict in your favor, bury the remnants in your backyard to ensure the ruling is not overturned. If a backyard is not available, use a healthy potted plant and place it in the back of your home in a secure location.

Old World Moon Phases
The Moon is of key importance for the Old World Witch. The Moon and its cycle (increase and decrease) impact the potency of rituals and their successes. The Moon amplifies rituals and works in harmony with the energies exerted by the Witch.
As Old World Witches, we utilize elemental forces for magick and mystical significance of the natural world and its fauna and flora: Esoteric knowledge. Lore of healing. Energetic resonance of herbs and roots. And, of course, the Moon.
The Old World Witch does not follow the exact terminology and specifications of modern astrologers and astronomers. We maintain the visual interpretation and energies of the Moon, as explained below.
When the Moon cannot be seen and is in the dark phase, it is referred to as the Dark Moon in Old World Witchcraft. Modern astronomers and astrologers call this darkness the New Moon because the cycle of the Moon is about to restart.
Old World Witches are not the only ones who follow this Dark Moon terminology. Several ancient cultures (such as Islam) define this period as the end of the month and the very first crescent of the Moon (Witch's New Moon) as the beginning of the month.
The Witch's Dark Moon is a night of stillness, contemplation, and banishment. The only types of rituals that should be done on the Dark Moon are banishment work or curses/hexes. The Dark Moon is also ideal for all kinds of divination and working with the departed.
The Moon is energetically at its lowest point and is more conducive to the mentioned rituals.
Witch's New Moon (first crescent)
The New Moon of the Old World Witch is called the Witch's New Moon. It is when the very first crescent or sliver of the Moon is visible. This is typically 2-3 nights after the Dark Moon.
With some variations, the Witch's New Moon rises in the daytime before noon and becomes visible in the day sky. It will be most visible at sunset and usually sets well before midnight. The Witch's New Moon is the same percentage all over the world - both in the Northern and Southern Hemisphere. However, the tips of the Witch's New Moon point depend on the time, date, and location on Earth.
The Witch's New Moon is the ideal time to begin rituals that draw a life experience, physical possession, or situation to you. This can be for love, money, health, or personal development.
Rituals are best performed for 3-12 consecutive days. This is what leads to powerful, lasting, and most importantly, measurable results. Starting rituals three nights after the Dark Moon will give you exactly 12 days of rituals leading up to the Full Moon.
The Witch's New Moon is also the ideal time to begin a new venture, get married, apply for a job, or embark on a journey.
The same energetic attributes apply throughout the Waxing Moon, all the way up to the Full Moon.
The Full Moon is not only the most magickally potent and powerful time of the month, but it is also the most physically stimulating. As the Moon affects the ocean tides, so too does it affect our bodies. If you pay close attention to your body, you may have noticed that you may feel extra swollen or puffy on the mornings leading up to the full Moon and a couple of days thereafter. These are the days of maxi dresses, undereye concealer, and perhaps an inclination to wear fewer rings on your fingers.
Rituals are best performed for 3-12 consecutive days. This is what leads to powerful, lasting, and most importantly, measurable results. If you have been performing rituals leading up to the Full Moon, consider the night of the Full Moon the climax of your ritual.
The Full Moon signifies the cultivation of goals, the peak of a cycle, and emotional fulfillment. The Full Moon is best used to draw something into your life, such as love, financial prosperity, or self-development.
If, however, you are choosing not to perform any magick on the night of the Full Moon, simply sitting under the moon rays and energetically absorbing the magnetism will reawaken and revitalize your spirit.
Whether you're having a difficult time leaving an unsuitable relationship or are trying to eliminate negative self-talk, the Waning Moon is perfectly capable and willing to help phase out what is no longer needed or wanted.
In addition to removing negative influences from your life, this is also an appropriate time to cast revenge spells (curses).
The Waning Moon reminds us of things yet to be done and that time is slipping away. Anxiety is usually heightened during this time; therefore, self-care is critical.
