- A length of white cord

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 yarn. Tie the ends together then braid the yarn together saying:
Yarn of Red, Black, and White. Work your magick 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:
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 Gods,
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 everyday.
