Sit or stand before an open fire
or tall white candle.
Look into the flame and relax, let
yourself feel the warm safe glow. Visualize that these flames are bathing you with a glowing, soft warm and
The fire creates a flaming, shimmering
sphere of protection all around you.
ADORATION CANDLE MAGICK On your altar, place
two red candles at either end. Before doing this, rub the two candles with rose essential oil. Again, on Friday, the day
of the week devoted to the Goddess Aphrodite, perform this task to attract your beloved. Write your name on one candle,
and your beloved's on the other. If you do not know his or her name, simply write "my beloved" or "my true love". Again
try to use language that will ensure positive magic. If you simply write "handsome" you may well end up with someone gorgeous,
but who is harmful for you in some other way. Each evening at seven, light the candles and move them slightly closer together. Carve
into your candle a word of special significance to you, perhaps taken from your insights when you performed the wishful
thinking task. Perhaps the word "devoted" should be carved into your beloved's candle. On your own, write the same. Meditate
on this quality for several minutes, then snuff out the candles. Repeat this for seven nights, using a different quality
each time, until on the seventh, the following Friday, both candles are finally standing as close together as possible.
Light them and let them burn down and out. If any wax remains, scatter it before you as you walk through a beautiful place,
wishing it to bring good fortune to others hoping for love.
When you are ready say the following
Craft the spell in the fire; Craft
it well; Weave it higher. Weave it now of shining flame; None shall come to hurt or maim. None shall pass this fiery
wall; None shall pass No, none at all.
Simple candle spell
1. One of the simplest of magical arts which comes under the heading
of natural magic is candle burning. It is simple because it employs little ritual and few ceremonial artifacts. The theatrical
props of candle magic can be purchased at any department store and its rituals can be practiced in any sitting room or bedroom.
2. Most of us have performed our first act of candle magic by the time
we are two years old. Blowing out the tiny candles on our first birthday cake and making a wish is pure magic. This childhood
custom is based on the three magical principals of concentration, will power and visualization. In simple terms, the child
who wants his wish to come true has to concentrate (blow out the candles), visualize the end result (make a wish) and hope
that it will come true (will power).
3. The size and shape of the candles you use is unimportant, although
highly decorative, extra large, or unusually shaped candles will not be suitable as these may create distractions when the
magician wants to concentrate on the important work in hand. Most magicians prefer to use candles of standard or uniform size
if possible. Those which are sold in different colors for domestic use are ideal.
4. The candles you use for any type of magical use should be virgin,
that is unused. Under no circumstances use a candle which has already adorned a dinner table or been used as a bedroom candle
or night-light. There is a very good occult reason for not using anything but virgin materials in magic. Vibrations picked
up by secondhand materials or equipment may disturb your workings and negate their effectiveness.
5. Some magicians who are artistically inclined prefer to make their
own candles for ritual and magical use. This is a very practical exercise because not only does it impregnate the candle with
your own personal vibrations, but the mere act of making your own candle is magically potent. Specialist shops sell candle
wax and molds together with wicks, perfumes, and other equipment.
6. The hot wax is heated until liquid and then poured into the mould
through which a suitably sized wick has already been threaded. The wax is then left to cool and once is this has occurred
the mould is removed , leaving a perfectly formed candle. Special oil-soluble dyes and perfumes can be added to the wax before
the cooling process is complete to provide suitable colors and scents for a particular magical ritual. Craft shops which sell
candlemaking supplies can also provide do-it-yourself books explaining the technicalities of the art to the beginner.
7. Once you have purchased or made your ritual candle it has to be oiled
or 'dressed' before burning. The purpose of dressing the candle is to establish a psychic link between it and the magician
through a primal sensory experience. By physically touching the candle during the dressing procedure, you are charging it
with our own personal vibrations and also concentrating the desire of your magical act into the wax. The candle is becoming
an extension of the magician's mental power and life energy.
8. When you dress a candle for magical use, imagine that it is a psychic
magnet with a North and a South pole. Rub the oil into the candle beginning at the top or North end and work downwards to
the half-way point. Always brush in the same direction downwards. This process is then repeated by beginning at the bottom
or south end and working up to the middle.
9. The best type of oils to use for dressing candles are natural ones
which can be obtained quite easily. Some occult suppliers will provide candle magic oils with exotic names. If the magician
does not want to use these, he can select suitable oils or perfumes from his own sources. The oils soluble perfumes sold by
craft shops for inclusion in candles can be recommended.
10. The candles you use can be colored in accordance with the following
magical uses: White- spirituality and peace. Red- health,energy,strength,courage, sexual potency. Pink- love affection and
romance. Yellow- intellectualism, imagination, memory and creativity Green- fertility, abundance, good luck and harmony Blue-inspiration,
occult wisdom, protection and devotion Purple- material wealth, higher psychic ability, spiritual power and idealism Silver-
clairvoyance, inspiration, astral energy and intuition Orange- ambition. career matters and the law.
11. If you wanted to use candle magic for healing, you would select a
red candle to burn. To pass an exam, burn a yellow candle, to gain esoteric knowledge burn a blue candle or for material gain,
burn a purple one. It is obvious these colors relate to the signs of the zodiac and the planetary forces.
12. The simplest form of candle magic is to write down the objective
of your ritual on a virgin piece of paper. You can use color paper which matches the candle. Write your petition on the paper
using a magical alphabet, such as theban, enochian, malachain,etc. As you write down what you want to accomplish through candle
magic-- a new job, healing for a friend, a change of residence, a new love affair, etc.-- visualize your dream coming true.
Visualize the circumstances under which you might be offered a new job, imagine your employer telling you that your salary
has been increased or conjure up a vision of your perfect love partner.
13. When you have completed writing down your petition, carefully fold
up the paper in a deliberately slow fashion. Place the end of the folded paper in the candle flame and set light to it. As
you do this concentrate once more on what you want from life.
14. When you have completed your ritual, allow the candle to have completely
burned away. You do not need to stay with the candle after the ritual, but make sure that is safe and that red-hot wax will
not cause damage or fire. Never re-use a candle which has been lit in any magical ritual. It should only be used in that ritual
and then allowed to burn away or be disposed of afterwards.
15. If you are conducting a magical ritual which involves two people
(e.g. an absent healing for a person some distance away) then the second person can be symbolically represented during the
ritual by another candle. All you need to do is find out the subject's birth date and burn the appropriate candle for that

When you are ready to light the candle, chant something like:

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.

Do not blow or pinch it out. Blowing a candle out blows desires away, and pinching a flame pinches out

Riding Self of Unwanted Energy
Take a black candle which has been ritually cleansed and some anointing oil
which has also been ritually blessed. Do not use anything for this which has not been cleansed or blesed already.
Depending on the desired result, you should choose an oil which corresponds
to this end. At the time of the new moon, or when it first begins to wane, cast a circle or use your 9' cord to create
a sacred space.
Place the black candle (preferable a taper) on the altar with the oil.
Have no unblessed/uncleansed tools in this ritual.
Cast the circle.
Call the Goddess and her consort.
Use a burin to engrave the candle with the spell you wish to cast.
Now, anoint the candle using the oil. While you anoint the candle with the
oil, speak these words out loud or silently "Tonight no moon, tomorrow the first one. Let this be eroded til my will be done.
Candle burn down to remove all ill. Let this spell be cast by the power of my will."

hair dryer until it's pliable (a minute or two). Cut a piece of wicking; it should be l inch longer than the length of
the candle. Place the wicking along one long edge of the wax; fold the wax over the wicking and press tightly to seal
Step 2: Carefully roll up the wax sheet with the wicking inside. Make sure the top and bottom edges remain
even and that the wicking stays securely in place.
Step 3: When the candle is the diameter you want, cut off the
excess wax with a sharp utility knife. Use a ruler as a straight edge to make sure that you get a neat, clean edge.
Step 4: Smooth the cut end by pressing a warmed butter knife (hold it under running hot water and dry it, or warm
it with a hair dryer) along the seam. Don't press too hard; beeswax is delicate and you can easily crush the candle.
To prime the end of the wick, press a tiny bit of wax around it just before lighting it.

widths by varying the number of layers of beeswax in which you roll each piece of wicking. You can group candles of
varying widths and heights for an elegant display.
To make a tapered candle, cut a right triangle from a sheet of
beeswax. Roll from one of the equal sides.
Make beehive-shape, candles by rolling a tapered candle, then adding
layers of sheet wax, each layer slightly shorter than the last.
For square candles, gently press the candle against
a hard, smooth surface after each quarter turn.

Now allow the candle to burn itself out with out being disturbed.
To Change the Color of Flame:
For Candles: add the chemicals to the wax, or soak the wicks in a solution
of the chemicals using the "recipes" below
To Add to a Fire: Put three level spoons of the chemical into a paper cup;
fill 1/2 full with water and stir. Soak several small chips of wood in this solution overnight. The next day, remove the chips
with tweezers and lay on newspaper to dry. They can now be added to the lames to produce bright colors.
Green flame: Borax or Boric acid, copper nitrates or barium nitrates, alum
Orange flame: calcium chloride
Red flame: stronium nitrate, some sources site Boric acid as well
Yellow flame: Table salt, Sodium Chlorate or Potassium Nitrate
Another special effect can be achieved by sprinkling powdered iron into
a flame. If this is done slowly enough, a number of yellow, sparkling "stars' can be seen clearly.
