Midsummer Rose Dream Divination
Perform the following divination on Midsummer Eve,
When the clock chimes 12 to usher the witching hour:
Without uttering a single word, walk backwards into
A garden and gather the reddest rose in full bloom.
Wrap it in a clean sheet of white paper, and then tuck
It away in some secret hiding place where it will be undisturbed.
At sunrise on the day of the old Winter Solstice (Dec 25th)
Remove the rose from the paper and place the flower on
Your bosom. According to legend, the man who is destined
To become your husband will then come and snatch it away.
Beltane Love Divination: Yarrow
By Gerina Dunwhich
To experience a dream about the man or woman destined to be your future marriage mate, pluck 10 stalks of yarrow on Beltane Eve (April 30) or on a night when the moon is new. Before going to bed, place nine of the stalks beneath your Pillow and toss the remaining one over your left shoulder While repeating the following charm:
"Good night, good night, fair yarrow,
Thrice good night to thee.
I pray before the dawn tomorrow,
My true love to see.
Beltane Love Divination Yarrow 2
Sew an ounce of yarrow in a piece of flannel or stuff it into a stocking and then place it beneath your pillow before going to bed. You may speak this charm (or a variation) three times
Thou pretty herb of Venus' tree,
Thy true name it is yarrow.
Now who my future lover must be,
Pray tell thou me tomorrow.
