Candle Magic

One of the most important tools in magic or any ritual, are candles. They’re so versatile, you can use them for just about anything. They can represent the Deities, be used as a focal point for a ritual, or be the focal point for a spell.

Any practitioner of magic will tell you that focus is the main ingredient to magic. A candle can represent a particular form of energy and the colour or shape can help you visualize the spell working.

There are many colours in the spectrum, and a meaning for each one. From white to black, candle colours coincide with just about every part of everyday life. Some of the more popular ones are;

Red – The colour of strength, health, vigour, and sexual love.

Green – The colour of creativity, wealth, finance, fertility, and luck. 

Blue – The colour of peace, tranquility, understanding, patience, and health.

Yellow – The colour of attraction, persuasion, charm, and confidence. 

Black – Use this colour in banishing rituals to rid yourself of evil, loss, discord, or confusion.  

White  – This colour is considered The Pure colour. Use it in rituals for purity, truth, and sincerity.

Paraffin wax candles are generally frowned on as they’re made from residue of crude oil, and burning them releases toxin into the air, but sometimes the convenience of paraffin is preferable. Especially when you first start using candles. You can find coloured bees wax candles in sheets, and roll them yourself. This is what I do. It’s fun, and you can infuse some of your own energy into the candle as you roll.

Remember when using candles, DON’T LEAVE THEM UNATTENDED. You may come across a spell that says to leave the candle lit for so many hours, fine, but put it someplace where you can keep an eye on it. I did a prosperity rituals where I had to leave the candle burning for so long. I did the rite in the living room, since I was going to be in that room for the rest of the day. Also, and I know I don’t have to say this either, but I will, DON’T LEAVE A CANDLE ON AN UNSTEADY SURFACE. Accidents can happen in the blink of an eye.
