Black Candle to Channel Sorrow
Today's Moon is in Capricorn, which is ruled by Saturn. Saturnine energy
is attuned to darker emotional energies, sorrow in particular.
If you feel yourself overwhelmed with sorrow, take some time to calm down,
reflect on the situation, and ground and center your energy.
Bring to mind the things that influenced you to become overwrought with sadness,
and meditate on ways that the situation(s) can be alleviated.
When you have successfully separated, to some degree, from the darker emotions
you are experiencing— which may take a long time to do, depending on
the situation—light a black candle.
Cupping your hands around the flame, feel your sadness entering the candle and transforming through the alchemical fire.
Continue this visualization for some time.
When done, stash the candle in aluminum foil for future use, or let it burn
down to the end.
This spell is one way to align and balance your energy
when you are feeling overwhelmed with heavy, dark emotions
