Candle Magick

I love candles. I have candles in every room of my every color, every size, and every scent. At Christmas I have pine scents, apples and cinnimon, and Christmas cookie candles. As a matter a fact, I stock up on both the apples and cinnimon and Christmas cookie candles to burn in my kitchen year round so my kitchen usually smells like cider mulling on the stove or cookies baking in the oven. My mother-in-law, a woman well-versed in many of the old ways in the Dominican Republic, hated candles. She had been taught that both candles and incense drew evil spirits into the house, so, out of respect, I would hide all my candles whenever she came to visit. My husband also believes as his mom did...although he will never admit it. He, too, hates candles, but he says they either give off too much heat, stink, or make the room smokey. So, out of respect to him, I only light my candles when he is not home...except for my kitchen candles. That is my room. Fortunately, I never let them sway me.

Different colors of candles represent different things. For example, if you want to use a spell to gain money, you would choose a green candle. Why? That's represents money. If you want love, use a pink candle. Lust? Use a red candle. Try the following basic spell. Take the candle and make seven notches in it, all equally apart. Dress the candle by rubbing virgin olive oil from top to bottom. Now, place the candle in a strudy candle holder (preferably a metal one). and light it. Concentrate on your tak while the candle burns down to the first notch. Burn the candle each night to the next notch until it has completely burned out. You can find out which color you want by checking out the correspondence chart listed on some of the Wiccan websites. A few examples follow:

White: Truth, purity
Orange: Attraction, stimulation
Purple: Power, ambition
Greenish yellow: Jealousy, anger, discord
Red: Health, sex, strength
Pink: Love, honor
Light Blue: Tranquility, patience, health
Dark Blue: Depression, changeability
Green: Money, fertility

Candle spells can be very easy or very complicated depending on how much time you have to put into a ritual. A spell can be as simple as lighting a green candle and, money, money. You can also write out what you want to work with in a rhyme and burn it after saying it like an incantation. Keep any ashes and wax and make into a ball to use as a Talisman or keep in a spell box in case you decide to reverse the spell.
, Healing Candle Spell

You will need seven candles for this one. One white for the Lady, one yellow for the Lord, one orange for encouragement and attraction, one for yourself according to your astral color, and three red candles for strength and helth. You can also burn some incense if you lie, First, light the Lord and Lady cancles, then the incense. Sit quietly for a few moments and think of the goodness and health coming into you. Now, light the petitioner's candle and picture the person and say:

Here is _____________in excellent health.

Blessings from the Lord and Lady be upon him.

Next, light the orange candle and say:

This flame draws all that is good to ______________

It draws health and strength and all he desires.

Now, light the three red candles saying:

Here is to health and strength three fold.

Take into ____________to serve and build him as the Lord and Lady would wish.

Sit and meditate on the good health you desire. Extinguish the candles. Repeat this every Friday for 7 days, each time moving the red candles closer to the petitioner's candle. On the 7th Friday, they should be touching the petitioner's candle.
