Or when should i see results from my magic spell or candleburning?
I was taught to look for magical results in a grouping of three: three days, three weeks, and three months.
Within three days of the work, you should stay open to any omens or signs, positive or negative, about the status and outcome of your intents. These could take the forms of chance happenings, a sign or statement from a stranger, a dream, and random events that have meaning or relate somehow to your working. Be on the look-out for these early signs - they're always there.
By three weeks you should have definite, observable movement. Things should be starting to or in the process of unfolding either toward your goal or away from it. You should have a little more than signs; you should have some results.
In most instances, after three months you should either have what you desire, it should be within arm's reach, or you don't. There are a few exceptions in the instance of chronic and severe problems, long-standing conditions, and excessively stubborn situations and people.
If you do not have what you wish after three months, do some soul-searching. Re-evaluate your intent. Is it towards your best nature? Do you have any doubts? How can you re-work it? Then try again or move on.
For long-term magical work it is absolutely necessary to set a deadline. This is most true for reconciliation work which has a tendency to drag on and on with little windows of hope, then disappointment, more time, etc. In prayer ask God/dess or your Higher Self for a deadline, a firm time where you will work your hardest to obtain your goal, but after this date, whatever it is, if you still don't have what you want, you will give it up and move forward. This is such important advice; i pass it on whenever i can.
