Candle Magic

Candles have long been known for their mysterious and intriguing qualities in life.

They bring light to the darkness, they light our way when we are lost, they bring to us the peaceful calm of being safe and protected within a golden glowing force field whenever they are lit. It is no wonder that they are used as frequently as they are as tools for magic.

  

Candle magic essentially is the practice of working magic to direct your will using Candles as a medium, or tool, to complete the process. Witches have been using candles for a very long time because they are symbolic of the element of fire, first of all, which connects us to the mystery of that element and in combination with the wax in the way that it melts; there are other divinatory qualities that exist with candles.

They are very mysterious and interesting. Candles themselves have been traced as far back as the Paleolithic era, where they were created to symbolize people or animals or the sun and moon. In this modern day and age, candle magic has become something of an art form.

When choosing to use candles in your magic to symbolize the work, you will first want to decide what kind of timing you are going to be using for your spell. If it is going to be an hour long spell, a day long spell or a week long spell.

Then you will want to find a candle that will burn as long as you are intending the spell to work. Once you have done that, you will want to choose a color that is representative of your goal. For example, a green candle might mean money to you or it might mean the home or the hearth.

If you are trying to work magic on acquiring more money or making your home a peaceful place, and you resonate with the color green for these purposes then you should use a green candle. Once you have chosen that color, you will want to take it home and consecrate it.

One of the most common ways of consecrating (blessing your candle in preparation to do good work for you) you will want to get some olive oil or some kind of anointing oil and with all of your good intentions using your thumb and starting at the middle of the candle, you will want to start moving the oil up the candle toward the top all the way around.

And then do the same thing from the middle to the bottom of the candle. When your candle is consecrated in this manner you may use it for your purposes.

Many people wonder what kind or color of candles they should use to work their spell. They refer to books to reference the colors and their symbolic meanings.

While books are extremely helpful and informative, especially when it comes to correspondences such as these, it is also extremely beneficial to practice strengthening your own personal intuition by approaching the colors of the candles with an open mind.

Determine what feels right for you. You may feel that a yellow candle is symbolic of your home and hearth or that Red is the color of money for you. Both would be fine if that was the case. The main point behind any magical working is the amount of intention that you put behind it.
