   A Spell of Protection

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 protective light.

The fire creates a flaming, shimmering sphere of protection all around you.



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 zodiacal sign. 

These are as follows- 

ARIES                 red 
TAURUS            green 
GEMINI               yellow 
CANCER           silver 
LEO                    orange 
VIRGO                yellow 
LIBRA                pink 
SCORPIO          red 
SAGITARIUS    purple 
CAPRICORN    (black) 
AQUARIUS       (all colors) 
PISCES             mauve

Our/my desire.

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


Candle of power, candle of might,
Create my desires here on this night.
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.

To draw a passionate love your way, during a waxing Moon gather two taper candles,
one pink and one red, and some red thread and jasmine oil.
Anoint the candles with jasmine oil using your fingertips, then light them while visualizing
the flames of passion growing between yourself and new, but yet unknown, love.
Link the candles together by making a figure eight between them with the thread while repeating:
"Flames of passion and seeds of romance grow;
I open my heart to love. Now the one who seeks me shall come."
For best results, enact the spell on three consecutive nights.



take an orange candle anointed with cinnamon oil, clove, or lotus oil.
Light the candle and say 3 times:
"brimstone, moon, and witch's fire,
candlelights bright spell,
good luck shall I now acquire,
work thy magic well.
Midnight twelve, the witching hour,
bring the luck I seek.
By wax and wick now work thy power
as these words I speak.
Harming none, this spell is done.
By law of three, so mote it be!"
Do this spell at midnight.






1. Chose type and color of candle appropriate for ritual.

2. Cleanse the candle of prior energies: you may use water, salt, pure soap, or baby oil (all previously blessed and consecrated.)

3. Bless and consecrate oil to be used, appropriate to ritual.

4. State and engrave (if you wish) what the candle is to represent.

5. Anoint the candle with oil and focus on desire (purpose of ritual.)

a. For ritual of achievement: anoint oil from the top of the candle to the middle in a downward motion, then from the bottom of the candle to the middle in an upward motion.

b. For ritual of banishment: anoint oil from the middle of the candle to the top in an upward motion, then middle to bottom of the candle in a downward motion.

6. Bless and consecrate the candle.

Some people do not use matches to light candles, the sulfur is considered unclean.

If you feel this way, use an incense starter or stick to light your candles.

To extinguish a candle, snuff it out or wave your hand over it hard enough to make a breeze to put it out.

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


Medieval candle spell reversal ritual


Do this 5 nights in a row, at dusk - as the sun dies and darkness descends.

Light 2 Black candles and as they burn, speak this invocation: |

In the name of the Gods and all ye spirits,
In the name of Kernunnos, and the light and the dark and the Gods of the Netherworld,
Remove thy curse and sting from my heart and mine.
And whosoever shall be casting a curse against me,
Let he or she suffer their own curse.
Let these candles be their candles,
This burning be their burning,
This curse be their curse.
Let the pain they have caused me and mine
Fall upon themselves.

The two candles are completely burned each night.

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."

And once you have anointed the candle, place it in a safe place to burn down completely.


Rolled Candles

sheets of pliable honeycomb-textured wax, available in natural
pale colors and in bright dyed hues
utility knife
butter knife

Step 1: To make the wax easier to work with, heat it on a
radiator or with a 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 it in.

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.


Vary the height of your candles by cutting the beeswax into
strips of different heights before rolling. Create candles of different
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.





Select a colored candle
 that corresponds with the desired outcome. Cast a
 circle then Magnetize the candle with suitable oil.
 While you are dressing the candle say

"Upon this
 candle I will write
What I require of thee
May the runes of magick flow.
By mind and
And flame aglow. I trust that
You will grant this
Oh Lovely Goddess of the Moon"

Now take up
 your blade and carve a rune or symbol that represents
 the goal of the spell. Place
The candle on the
 center of the alter and light it while

"As my will, so mode it be!"

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 (thallium)


Orange flame: calcium chloride


Red flame: stronium nitrate, some sources site Boric acid as well


Reddish/Orange-calcium choloride


Yellow flame: Table salt, Sodium Chlorate or Potassium Nitrate


Yellow/Green-borax (sodium tetraborate)


Purple flame: Lithium Chlorate, (potassium nitrate)


White: psom Salts (magnesium sulfate)


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.



To help speed a recovery from illness, write the sick person's name upon a white human-shaped
candle of the appropriate gender. As you anoint it with three drops of myrrh or mint oil, visualize
healing energy in the form of white light flowing from your hands into the candle and say:
In the divine name of the Goddess
Who breathes life into us all
I consecrate and charge this candle
As a magical tool for healing.
Place the candle on top of a photograph of the sick person and then light the wick.
As the candle burns down, concentrate upon the person in the photograph, willing him
or her to be well again, and chant the following incantation:
Magick mend and candle burn,
Sickness end; good health return
