Sometimes a new beginning can best be done by a clean ending.
If you are in a situation with another person or entity and wish to sever the relationship
with a minimum amount of stress, wait for the Dark Moon and you will need:
small piece of paper [large enough for two names]
Write your name and the other name on the piece of paper space them so they may be cut apart.
Lay the paper with both names on the altar and visualize your current situation.
Now cut the names apart as you are cutting them visualize a peaceful separation each turning their back on the other and walking away. Now take the piece of paper with the other name on it and light it in the fire as it burns say We are free, I from you and you from me ,we go our separate ways in perfect peace and perfect harmony as I so will so must it be.
Dispose of the ashes when they cool let the candle burn down.
