Dear Friends,

Candle magick is on of the most important forms of magick and should become part of your regular practice. While candles can be used to represent the Goddess, God and the elements in ritual work, they can also be used to cast spells. Candle magick can be used for many different types of magick, from love to luck to divination to money.Performing candle magick can be as simple or as complicated as you’d like it to be. You’ll want to use your regular altar space, but make sure that it is cleared of any remnants from past spells. When I am performing a candle magick spell, I like to cover my altar in a color related to the spell that I am performing (green for money or job, red for love, etc). You can also use a white cloth, since white is a multipurpose color. You’ll also want to use Vervain incense. I find that Vervain gives all of my spellworking an extra oomph.

After you’ve selected a candle magick spell from a book or received one from your coven, you’ll need to purchase your candles (if you have none) and then dress your candles. Beeswax candles are a good choice because they are made with natural materials. Some witches prefer to make candles themselves because they will be instilled with the energy from the witch. However, when you are starting out store bought candles are perfectly fine.

When you use store bought candles, you’ll need to dress them with oil before you perform your spell. I normally do this the day before my planned spell because it gives the candle time to absorb the oil. It also gets me in the magickal frame of mind for the next day. The choice of oil is up to you. I use a special blended energizing oil for most spells, but on occasion I use oil that it specific to the magick I am performing.

The most important part of dressing the candle is the direction in which you do so. If you are performing magick to bring something to you, start at the top of the candle and rub the oil to the middle. Then start at the bottom of the candle and rub the oil toward the middle. For spellwork that you are using to send something away from you, start from the center of the candle and rub the oil outward toward both ends.

While you are consecrating the candle repeat the following phrase:

“I cleanse and consecrate this candle in the name of the God and Goddess. May it burn with strength in the service of light.”

On the day that you are performing the magick, take a ritual bath before you begin with warm water and a handful of sea salt. This will neutralize any negative energy you’ve gathered from the day. This will also help prepare your body and mind for the work. While you bathe, focus on the magick you are about to do and clear your mind of the stresses of the day.

Follow the directions for the your spell for the rest of the candle spell. Some spells require you to light and relight a candle over a set period of time. For these, you’ll need a safe space to store your candle. If you altar is not permanent or is too low to the ground to be safe, cleanse a space that is in a more appropriate location. In fact, you might want to use the new location for the entire ritual. The same goes for spells that require you to leave a candle burning.

Candle magick can be quick and very effective. I encourage you to branch out into this form of magick and try different types of spells and candles.
Love And Light,
