Candle magick is a powerful tool for enhancing spells and manifesting your desires.
Whether you are a seasoned practitioner or just starting to delve into the world of magick, understanding how to use candles effectively can elevate your spellwork to new heights.
What is Candle Magick?
Candle magick is a form of sympathetic magick that utilizes the energy and symbolism of candles to focus your intention and bring your desires to fruition.
It is believed that candles, when burned with intention, can release their energy into the universe to manifest your desired outcome.
How Does Candle Magick Work?
Candle magick works by using the flame of a candle to symbolize the manifestation of your desire. When you light a candle, you are directing your intention and energy toward the candle, which then releases that energy into the universe.
The flame symbolizes the transformation of your intention into physical reality.
Choosing the Right Candles for Your Spellwork
When it comes to candle magic, the type of candle you choose can make a big difference in the success of your spell. Each color of candle is associated with different energies and correspondences, so it is important to choose the right color for your specific intention.
White candles are considered neutral and can be used for any intention, making them a good choice for beginner practitioners. They are often used for purification, healing, and protection spells.
Red candles are associated with passion, strength, and energy. They are often used for love spells, prosperity spells, and protection spells.
Blue candles are associated with communication, truth, and peace. They are often used for communication, healing, and protection spells.
Green candles are associated with growth, abundance, and prosperity. They are often used for money, success, and abundance spells.
Preparing Your Candles for Spellwork
Before you light your candles, it’s important to prepare them for spellwork. This helps to align your energy with the candle and ensure your spell is successful.
Anointing Your Candles
Anointing your candles involves using a corresponding oil to bless and charge the candles.
Simply place a few drops of oil on the top of the candle and roll the candle in your hands, allowing the oil to absorb into the wax.
You can also use your finger to spread the oil from the top to the bottom of the candle.
Carving Your Intentions into the Candle
Carving your intentions into the candle can help to focus and direct your energy. Simply use a pin or needle to carve your intention into the wax.
You can also carve symbols or sigils that represent your intention.
Performing Candle Magick Spells
Now that you have prepared your candles, it’s time to perform your spell. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your candle magick.

The more focused and intentional you are, your spell will be more powerful.
Repeat Your Affirmations
