General Purpose Charm

A length of White Cord

A length of Red Cord

A length of Black Cord

Nine Feathers, each of a Different Color

Red for physical vitality, Blue for mental abilities, peace and protection, Yellow for cheerfulness and prosperity, Green for growth and health, Brown for stability and respect, Black for mystical wisdom, Irridescent Black for mystical insight, Barred Black, Grey or White for balance and harmony, Feathers with "eyes" such as peacock feathers for protection and inner clairvoyant vision

If it is possible, make the Ladder on the night of a Full Moon. Arrange your alter and cast a circle. Use about a yard of each color yarn. Tie the ends together then braid the yarn together while you say :

Yarn of Red, Black, and White

Work Your magic spell this night.

Repeat this until the braid is finished. Braiding is a magickal act because it makes three strands into one. This represents the three aspects of the Goddess in one. Tie a knot at the end of the braid. Starting at about a foot from the beginning of the braid, tie a feather with a knot around the base and say : (example a green feather)

With this feather and this string

Prosperity this charm will bring.

Tie all nine feathers to the cord, spacing them as evenly as possible. Tie the ends of the cord together to form a circle. Pass the finished Ladder above a candle flame then incense smoke. Sprinkle it with consecrated water and say :

In the names of the Goddess and the God

By Air, Earth, Fire and Water

I consecrate this charm

Of feathers nine and cord of three

As I will, so mote it be!

Hang the Ladder where it will not be seen by others but where you will see it every day.

To make a Ladder for a specific purpose, you need three feathers and one length of yarn braided into a cord in the color of your need.
