For a wax reading, you’ll need water, a candle and a bowl or pan. Don’t use your best china because you’ll be adding wax to the water. If you’re using a white candle, use a black or dark-coloured bowl to make the wax more visible. 1. Fill your pan or bowl with tap water. Set your intention for your candle-wax reading. 2. Light the candle and let it burn down for a minute or two to give enough wax to drip into the water. Meanwhile, think of your question. 3. Swirl the water around with a spoon, then remove the spoon and drip some candle wax into the swirling water. Look closely. What shapes are emerging from the solidifying wax?
4. If you make out a symbol or number, consider what this represents for you. If you asked a yes or no question and you’re pleased with the images you see, then the answer to your question is ‘yes.’
