If you want to foretell through magical methods something that will occur to you, something that you are awaiting, some befalling event, then buy three green candles. If you do not find them with that color in the market, then paint them with green paint.

Place these three candles in three separated candle holders or candlesticks and form a triangle with them. Light each one of the three candles.

Once this is made and the candles are lit by means of some flammable object which must not contain sulfur, with all of your love you will call the six principal chiefs of the Salamanders of Fire.

You will pronounce the names of these six chiefs:

Vehniah, Achajad, Jesabel, Jeliel, Cathethel, Mehahel

When the candles are lit, you must not take from them even the smallest piece of their tinder or wick.

Once the magical invocation is made to the six chiefs of the Salamanders, then you must carefully observe the actions of each flame. If the flames of the candles oscillate from left to right, then this announces some extraordinary event.

If the flames oscillate in the form of spirals, then you can be sure that many intrigues from your enemies exist. If the fire disappears, then some treason against you exists, or treason against the person or persons who have come to consult you.

If the resplendence of the fire increases and also happily crackles, then this is an announcement of total triumph, of formidable success.

Before performing this magical experiment, pray very slowly and meditate on “The Lord’s Prayer.” Ask permission of your Father, who is in secret, in order to perform this experiment.
