Basic Candle Magic
This type of candle magic is very basic, yet quite effective. This is a good time to iterate how closely Karma and ethics are intertwined. You choose your own color of magic, not once, but each time you practice. Some traditions believe in Karma as “What you do comes back to you”.
Keep in mind that for any magic it is best (though not necessary) to do calling magick, such as money, love, health, luck or anything that brings something to you, during the waxing moon (first quarter) to the full moon. Banishing magic, such as bindings, quitting bad habits, curses or anything pushing energy away should be done during the waning moon (last quarter) to the new moon. These are optimal times, but you cannot always base your magick around the moon.
Basic candle magic deals only with two colors, white and black Correspondence tables at good Wiccan sites. Envision the white candle as the waxing to full moon and the black candle as the waning to new moon. For any calling purposes, use the white candle. For any banishing purposes, use the black candle.
Note: Always use candles that are one solid color throughout. Scratch some wax off to test this if you are not certain
You Will Need:
• One white or black candle
• Candle holder
• Matches or lighter
• Olive oil
• Basic Candle Magic Spell
Perform STEP ONE, Meditation.
For white candle:
Rub oil from the tip of the candle towards the base, while humming and visualizing your reason for doing this spell. Continue humming and visualizing for about five minutes.
For black candle:
Rub oil from the base of the candle towards the tip, while humming and visualizing your reason for doing this spell. Continue humming and visualizing for about five minutes.
Continue for either candle. Place the candle into the holder and light it. Chant your chant for as long as you can while visualizing your purpose. To chant, use a monotone humming voice.(You should create a specific chant for your purpose.) It can be as simple as one word or as complex as you wish.) (Examples: “Money, money, come to me”, “bring love”, or “Protection surround me, complete serenity”.)
When you cannot chant and visualize any longer, put the candle out and repeat the spell the following night (or day). After you see the first glimpse of the results of your spell, let the candle burn all the way out. Remember, after the completion of any spell or ritual, say: “So mote it be.”
Basic Candle Magick 2
Depending on your goal, you will need to choose the candle color that is
appropriate for your task. Different colors represent different things, for
example, if you want to use this spell to gain money, you choose a green candle, because green represents money (as well as other things). If you wanted love, you would use a pink candle (or red if it’s actually lust you want).
Take the candle and engrave it from top to bottom with what it is your need, using the back side of the blade of a dull knife. (Yes, you can use your athame, but a common butter knife works if you don’t have one).
Engrave the first and last initials of the person you want to cast the spell on (your own initials if it’s for yourself) on the bottom of the candle in the same manner. After you have engraved your candle, rub incense ashes all over the candle. This means bottom, base, middle, tip, and wick.
If you wish, the ashes of the incense may also correspond with your goal. Place the candle in a sturdy candle holder (preferably metal, glass may shatter) and light it. Leave the candle to burn in a safe place. In order for this to work, the candle must be left to burn all the way down.
Optional: If you think it would help, sit in front of the candle for a few minutes and concentrate on your goal. Meditate on it. Before you leave your candle to finish burning, repeat a few times what it is your wish for the spell to accomplish.
After the candle had burned out, clean the excess wax away from the candle holder, and throw it away. It should take about 24 hours to start working, depending on the goal.
