{Candle Magick}

Candles are used in various ways by both Pagans and Witches. In Witchcraft, consecrated, white candles are placed on altars and at the four corners of the magick circle. When it is called for in ceremonial magick, candles are positioned to form a pentacle. Candles are burned at all religious ceremonies. Colored candles are used in magickal spells. The color has its own vibration, attribute, symbolism, and influence. Also, the colors correspond to the signs of the Zodiac; some signs have more than one color.

In preparing to cast a spell, the Witch may dress, or anoint, the candle with an anointing oil while concentrating upon the purpose of the spell. The spell’s purpose dictates the formula of the oil. Or, a Witch may scratch a wish on the candle. The procedures vary and may contain elements of folk and ceremonial magick.

Casting your first simple candle spell:

1} Choose your candle: Choose the candle most suited to your wish. Before you start, make sure you will not be disturbed.

2} Set your intent: Decide on the exact wording of your wish. This is known as your intent & focuses your mind on exactly what you are asking for.

3} You can write your intent down, speak it aloud, or just think it silently.

4} Light your candle & sit quietly beside it, contemplating your wish.

5} Focus on your wish: As your candle burns down, visualize the energy of your will being released by the candle flame.

6} Release your intent: If you wrote your wish down, at this stage you should hold the piece of paper it's written on in the candle flame, until it has completely burned away.

7} Bind your spell: To bind your spell, you may wish to recite a suitable incantation: "I call on Earth to heed my spell, Air to speed its passage well. Bright as fire shall this spell glow, deep as tide of water flow. By my will, be it so." Then either allow the candle to burn out naturally or use a candle snuffer-do not blow the candle out.

When using candle magick in healing, try to apply similar principles as used in color healing. Used a colored candle that has the curatives traits which meet the needs of the illness. During and after the practice always visualized the afflicted person as completely healed.
