Candle Magick For Beginners

Updated on July 29, 2009

The Basics Of Casting Candle Magic Spells

Candle magic is one of the simplest, most basic forms of spell casting and can be practiced by anyone no matter their experience with spell casting.  The spells rarely require a lot of fancy ritual or expensive ingredients and can usually be performed on a small table or altar.  Basically, anyone with a candle can perform a spell.  Remember when you were a child a made a wish before you blew out the candles on your birthday cake?  That was candle magic.  Only now, instead of just hoping for a new bicycle, you'll be consciously declaring your intent and naming your goal.

One of the reasons that casting spells with candles is so easy and so successful is that it doesn't require any special ingredients or tools.  A simple spell can be cast with only a candle, a piece of paper, and YOU!  Once you get the hang of it, though, you may want to try increasing the potency of your spells by including special herbs and oils to help increase your bond between your spirit and the spirit of the candle.  Burning incense also helps as it lifts your spell higher into the atmosphere and helps carry it on it's way.

The most important thing to look for when selecting your candles is to make sure the color is solid all the way through the candle.  You don't want a white candle that's been dipped in pink paint.  Choosing a candle made from an organic material such as soy or beeswax is also helpful for it's connection to nature.  But wax and paraffin candles work equally as well.  Try to find a smallish candle when working with a spell that requires you to watch the candle burn until it's burned out.  Or you could be sitting for days!

If you're going to be a serious spell caster, you'll want to be sure to have several colors of candles on hand at all times.  You never know when you might meet a certain someone and want to take the relationship to the next level.  Here are some of the candle colors and their meanings: Red - Courage and health, sexual love and lust  Pink - Friendship, Romantic love  Orange - Attraction and encouragement  Gold - Financial gain, business success  Yellow - Persuasion and protection  Green - Financial gain, abundance, fertility  Light Blue - Health, patience and understanding  Dark blue - Depression and vulnerability  Purple - Ambition and power  Black - Negativity and banishment  White - purity and truth  Silver - Reflection, intuition

Next comes dressing, or charging, your candle.  This establishes and increases the connection between you and the candle and helps combine your spiritual energies.  Use a natural oil to dress your candle.  If your spell calls for a specific oil, then you must use that.  If not, use any oil of your choice.  Begin at the top of the candle and rub the oil down to the middle.  Then, begin at the base of the candle and rub the oil up to the middle, overlapping where you left off.  Rub in one direction only, not back and forth, as this negates the charging.

To perform a simple candle magic spell, simply write your goal or intent on a piece of paper.  The paper should be the same color as the candle you are using.  Fold or roll the paper and burn it in the candle flame, holding it as long as you can without burning yourself.  Let the paper finish burning in a firesafe bowl or container.  And let the candle burn all the way out.  Do Not relight the candle, even if it burns out only half way through.  Just dispose of it by burying it outside, or, if you can't do that, in a safe place where no one will find it and try to relight it.

Within 3 days you should know if your spell is working.  If you've cast a love spell, perhaps you'll start bumping into that person on the street.  Or, if it was a money spell, maybe you'll win $5 on a scratch-off card.  If, after one month, you see no signs of success, perform a different spell with a new candle.  Do not re-use the candle and use a new spell, too.

When practicing Candle Magic, or any magic at all, it's always important to remember the Number One Rule - The energy that you put out will be returned to you in threes.  If you do a positive spell, asking for a positive or helpful result, then positive energy that's returned to you will be tripled.  But if you perform a negative spell, meant to hurt or harm someone, be careful of the repurcussions!
