Candle Magic

Guest Author - Leslie Ravenwing

I love doing magick and rituals with lots of candles. I guess candles just create a mysterious type of mood when burning!

When doing candle magick, you must first obviously decide what outcome you are looking for then chose your candle color.

Candle Color Meanings

Red - energy, strength, passion
Blue - wisdom, protection, creativity, communication, water, healing
Purple - spiritual power, psychic ability and energy, hidden knowledge
Silver - dreams, the goddess, intuition, telepathy, feminine power
Pink - love, peace, romantic, emotions,
Gold - wealth, god, happiness
Black - binding, protection, banishing negativity
Copper - money, growth
Yellow - sun, intelligence, memory
Green - fertility, money, tree magick, growth,
Brown - friendships, favors
White - the goddess, purity, spiritualism, peace

If you do not have time to go out and get the appropriate color, white is always a substitute for any color.

Dressing Your Candles and Oils to Use

Dressing the candle means anointing it with an essential oil. You dress your candle by rubbing your chosen oil on it from the top of the candle to the center. Then you rub the bottom of the candle to the center. Below is a list of Oil used for anointing candles.

Patchouli - for money or sexual desires
Rose - love, peace, sexual desire, enhance beauty
Geranium - protection
Myrrh - healing, meditation, enhance spirituality
Basil - happiness, peace, money, stimulating the conscious mind
Juniper - healing, protection, purification
Clove - courage, protection
Jasmine- the moon, love, psychic awareness, peace, spirituality, sexuality

If you do not have the oils on hand, olive oil is a fine substitute. Meditate on your intentions of the ritual as you rub the oil on the candles.

Sample Spells

Here are 2 spells that use candles that I have performed and have had positive results with.

Spell for money/Prosperity

A green candle
Runes- Money sign For your part of the world, One for wealth,
Good fortune. Perhaps one for a gift(Unexpected)
Oils: Patchouli and/or lavender
Herbs: Oregano or lavender

Follow steps 1-3 in the techniques section. Take a coin or Bill of small denomination and place it on your altar or where ever you are going to burn the candle. Or if it's to pay bills, Take a photo copy of that bill and just before the candle burns completely out.

Lite the copy of the bill. Or burn it in your censor. Don't forget to contribute some small amount of the money gained to a charity or someone less fortunate.

A Job Spell
This is best begun on the night of the New Moon:

Use a candle to represent yourself
A brown candle for the job itself
A green candle for prosperity

Burn a prosperity incense and anoint the candles with a prosperity oil - I
would use cinnamon. Anoint from wick to end. These candles should be in a
safe place, they have to burn out entirely.

Place the brown candle in the center, the green on the right, and your candle
on the left.

Light your candle, say:

I ask for change,
that is my right,
open the way,
clear my sight.

Light the green, say:

Good luck is mine and prosperity, help me Great Ones, come to me.

Light the brown, say:

Opportunity, work, rewards I see, And as I will So Mote it Be.

Say the above as you light the candles. Leave these to burn out completely
and dispose of the wax afterwards. Each night, for a week, or until the
candle is used up, light a second brown candle for 9 minutes while
meditating and gaining balance in preparation for the job and the good to

During this time period, Actively seek a job. Listen to your intuition and
follow up on all leads.
