A.K.A. Match to Needle

Chapter 5
This chapter will look closely at the Transfiguration spell of Acusignis, also known informally as Match to Needle.

The word is derived from Latin, acus meaning "needle", and ignus meaning "torch". It is the incantation used in Match to Needle exercises, and is pronounced aku-sig-nis.

Looking back at our categories in Chapter 1, this spell falls under the Transformation Transfiguration branch. It is used to transform a match into a needle. This is one of the most basic Transfiguration spells and is commonly practiced in all beginner Transfiguration classes.

The spell itself does not cast any light or noise, but strictly transforms a match pointed at with the caster's wand into a needle.

The level of this Transfiguration is basic.

t= Transformation of a match into a needle
a= caster must be heavier than the match
v= intent must be at least mild
w= any wand power
c= fair
Z= well-spoken, as clear as possible
