Candle Magick

Taken from various sources from Internet and Books

Candle magick is fairly easy and straight forward. The first step is to
Select or choose a colored candle for the spell being worked. Barring that
An appropriate colored candle cannot be found, a white candle is always a
Good fall back. Take the candle and write or inscribe on it your intention.
Light the candle and either let it burn out or burn for about a period of 10
To 15 minutes. Sit in front of the candle, meditating on your goal. If for
Example, doing a candle spell for a new job, think of the ideal job that you
Would like to have. The key here, as visualization is also being used, is to
Create as complete a picture possible you can of what it is you want to
Accomplish with the spell.


1) Always smother a flame that is to be extinguished before the candle is
Completed its burning.

2) Never blow out a flame. This is considered extremely rude to the fire

3) Remember to keep yourself, your belongings and your surroundings safe and
Protected from fire hazard when working candle magick.

4) You can use any kind of candle that appeals to you. White is always a
Good choice, but you may want to choose ones whose colors correspond to
Specific energies. Red, for example, connotes passion. Green brings growth
And good health. Yellow improves communication and blue creates harmony and

5) Before using it, "dress" the candle by rubbing it with olive oil. This
Imparts your special energies to it and forges a psychic link.

6) Create an altar or special place where you can burn your candle and leave
It undisturbed afterwards. You can add flowers, incense or other symbolic
Items if you wish.

7) Time your candle-burning to correspond to the cycles of the moon. You can
Find them out by looking on the weather page of your newspaper. To bring
Something into your life, do your rituals when the moon is waxing (or
Growing). To rid yourself of something, do it when the moon is waning.

8) Meditate briefly before lighting the candle to help still the mind and
Bring your desire into focus. When you light the flame, state your intention
Out loud, in simple, clear terms. Imagine that you already have what it is
You want in your life. Watch the flame steadily, but don't stare intently.
Focus on being receptive and open to what it is you want.

9) Let the candle burn as long as you want, but NEVER leave it unattended.
Be sure to blow it out at the end of your session.

10) Repeat the ritual as often as you like, but don't get obsessive. Candle
Burning is a way to help you stay open to the possibilities of life. It may
Seem that your particualr wish didn't come true, but who knows? Maybe its
Because something better is coming along.

Charging a candle with your personal energy

While ritually anointing your candle, visualize a pure white beam of light
Coming up from Mother Earth, entering your body through the soles of your
Feet and another beam of white light coming down from the Universe and
Entering your body through the top of your head. Envision the energy of
These beams of light flowing throughout your body and mingling together,
Finally concentrating in your hands, causing them to feel warm and to tingle
Now continue to stroke your candle until you feel the energy from your
Hands transfer to the candle. Now, your candle is charged with your personal
Energy and magickal intent.

When ready, light the candle, saying:

"Candle of power, candle of might,
Create my desires here on this night.
Power, stream from this candle's fire
Bring to me my heart's desire.
My words have strength, the victory's won.
So say I, This spell is done."

This is simple spell working and can be done for almost any goal...but also
Can be very powerful in the fact that it provides positive results.

GROUND Yourself after any magickal working by putting the palms of your
Hands on the ground or for so any energy left can flow back to mother earth.
Failure to do this caould maen a headache or extreme restless feeling. Also
Eat and drink something! Do some kind of physical activity


As a candle burns it releases not only it's wax but it's color into the
Atmosphere. What ever has been connected with the candle as in the form of
Embedded energy or written on the candle will transmigrate to a plane where
It can do what you have intended and focused on it to do. A candle, like
Everything else used for a magickal purpose, has to be consecrated. Use the
general consecration for candles. They are creatures of Fire or of Art. Make
sure to check the Moon phase before working any spell.
The phase of the Moon will greatly affect the outcome of your spell. Aftar
consecration a candle must be dressed. This consists of anointing the candle
with a special oil you have chosen for the purpose in mind. There are many
other things you can do to embed a candle to your purpose. You can etch
runes in it; a name on it; a purpose for it to perform.. Really the list is


You will need a new candle, the colour of your choice. Choose something that
corresponds with the type of spell you wish to perform. Consecrate the
candle and carve a pentagram on it. Say:

"Upon this candle I will write
What I receive of thee this night,
Grant me what I wish you to do;
I dedicate this rite to you.
I trust that you will grant this boon,
O lovely Goddess of the Moon."

This type of candle spell works well with any ritual.


Hold your hands on each side of the candle and mentally pour thoughts of
your aim into the candle. When you are ready, light the candle, say:

Candle of power, candle of might,
Create my desires here on this night.
Power, stream from this candle's fire.
Bring to me my heart's desire.
My words have strength, the victory's won.
So say I. This spell is done.

It is best to let the candle burn to the end. Remember: The longer you let
the candle burn, the stronger the spell,

A Candle Blessing Ritual

Rub anointing oil into the wax of the candle starting at the middle and
working your way up to the top as you say:


Start at the middle and go downwards this time and say:
