In this popular Halloween divination spell, three dishes are taken. One is empty; one contains dirty water and the last one has clean water. These dishes are arranged on the hearth. People are blindfolded and taken to the dishes. They then dip their fingers into the dishes, one by one. Those who dip their fingers in clean water first will marry a virgin; those who dip in dirty water will marry a widow or widower, while those who find empty dish are destined to be a bachelor or a spinster.

If you have a number of suitors and wish to find which one is best for you, there is a ritual that may be done at night when the moon is shining. Draw a large circle on a sheet of paper and write the names of your admirers anywhere within the circumference. Take up the paper in your left hand, and hold a needle in your right hand. Facing the moon, close your eyes and stab the needle into the paper.
The name closest to the hole made by the needle is the one who is best for you. If the hole actually posses through the name – so that moonlight flows through the hole and, therefore, through the name – then that person will be the very best match for you.
This divination method can be modified for use whenever you are unsure of your choices. Simply write the choices on the paper and follow the above instructions.
