Candle Magic is probably my favorite. It's as easy, or as complicated as you make it. It allows you to get really creative! There's a candle for literally everything. We all were practicing the manifestation magic of candles since forever! Proof? How about all the candles you blew out on your birthday? Candles also send your messages and prayers out- that's why we light them in churches, and in some countries,we leave them out on graves of our loved ones, or we light them at homes in their memory. Fire is one of the most powerful elements to work with- keep it in mind when you choose it as the executioner of your Magick. We will talk about the different elements and how I like to use them in my craft, very soon.
Colors are very powerful symbols. I will always tell you to go with your gut when choosing things to create your spells or setting your intentions, but it’s good to have some idea about the common color correspondence. Remember that Witchcraft is very subjective- and there are no wrongs and rights. It’s not a joke- that's why you always need to do some research but there’s freedom in the Craft. Don’t be afraid of the Power, especially the one within you.
This is only a guide- and should be taken as such! Listen to your heart my Witches. If something feels wrong to you, it’s going to be wrong. Check with yourself, before blindly following a spell. Here we go:
