A burning Candle

Candles are an often used ritual tool in a number of magickal rituals. Often, there is the belief that burning a certain shape, color, or scented candle will yield a certain magickal result, through a simple form of sympathetic magick. Candle burning as a magickal practice has been around for a very long time, and could be seen as one of the more older kinds of magickal rituals.

Candles are also used to represent the Element of Fire in most modern rituals, due to the fact that they use an open flame to exhaust their power. As such, one should always take care when using candles or doing candle magick, and never leave them unattended.

How Candles Are MadeEdit

Meanings of CandlesEdit


Certain colors of candles are said to have different meanings. These candles, when burnt, effect a certain response in the magickal self to appeal to the higher self., or guardians of a person.

  • White - Since white contains all colors, it is more often used for rites of purity and purification. It symbolizes, essentially, a state of peace, tranquility, and enlightenment. You can use these color candles for meditation, seeking the truth, summoning spirit guides, astral projection, and to enhance one's psychic abilities. White is most often considered a protective color of candle, and a Goddess symbol.[1]
  • Black
  • Blue
  • Red

Putting Out A CandleEdit

In most cases it is customary not to blow out a candle using one's breath, but to use a candle snuffer of some sort. It is considered bad form to blow out a candle, and not at all respectful of the element of fire to do so. (Which does not at all explain the tradition of blowing out candles on a birthday cake.)
