At or after half past the hour, fill a glass vessel with filtered water. Face East—the direction of renewal, hope, birth and rebirth—dress and light your candle, placing your cleansed crystal(s) next to it, and state your biggest dream or goal while holding your cup. Focus on your intention for as long as you wish before placing your glass on your altar. Let the candle burn out on its own (don’t leave it unattended!) and the next morning drink your moon water. Now, take your first step towards making this dream your reality. Keep your charged crystals with you until your next moon ritual.
Evaluate your current job situation. Do you feel satisfied? Fulfilled? Stable? Happy?! If you answered no to any of these, what would you change if you could? What is your dream job?
