Basic Candle Magic

 Key Steps and Correspondences

Candle magic is a potent form of spellwork that harnesses the power of intention, symbolism, and energy manipulation. By following a few key steps and understanding the correspondences associated with colors, days of the week, and moon phases, you can enhance the effectiveness of your candle magic practice.


Key Steps:

  1.  Set Your Intention: Begin by clearly defining your goal or desired outcome. Your intention is the driving force behind your candle magic.

  2. Focus Your Will: Concentrate your thoughts and emotions on the desired outcome as you prepare for the ritual. Visualize your intention coming to fruition.

  3. Candle Lighting: Light your candle, using a wooden match or the flame of a helper taper candle. As the flame illuminates, imagine your intention being sent out into the Cosmos.

  4. Anoint and Dress the Candle: Before the ritual, anoint your candle with oils, herbs, or powders. Apply them while focusing on your intention. Remember to rub oil up for drawing desires and down for repelling or reversing.

  5. Inscribe and Seal: Optionally, inscribe your candle with a person's name, a sigil, or a symbol. Seal the candle's intention by either kissing it or verbalizing your goal.

  6. Observation: Pay attention to how the candle flame burns, the wick, smoke, and wax melting. These signs can offer insights into your spell's progress.

  7. Candle Burning: Ideally, allow the candle to burn itself out for optimal results. If needed, use a candle snuffer to extinguish it. Never leave burning candles unattended.
