Using Candle Magick in Wicca

Uses for Candle Magick in WiccaCandle Magick is a popular form of sympathetic magic. There are many factors that play into the art of candle magic.

The practicer of Candle Magick should always keep the Wiccan Rede – ‘An har to none do what thou wilt” in mind as any type of magick will be returned to you three fold, whether it be positive or negative.

When performing a Wiccan ritual, consecrated white candles should be placed on the alters and at each of the four quarters of a magic circle or on the four points of a pentagram. Colors are important in magick, and Candle Magick is no different. Each color has it’s own vibration, attribute, symbolism and influences.

When you are preparing to cast a spell using Candle Magick in Wicca, rub the chosen candle with oil. At the same time, concentrate on the purpose of the spell. Or, if you don’t have oil available, you can write a spell on the candle and then light it.

I have listed below some colors and the energy vibrations and influences evoked by them. Bright colored candles burned in magickal work wiill enhance the colors’ vibrations.
