A WITCH’S LUCKY CANDLE SPELL
To bring good luck into your life, take a brand-new orange-colored candle that has never been lit and anoint it with three drops of cinnamon, clove, or lotus oil. (Each one of these oils is said to possess strong luck-attracting vibrations, which make them ideal for this spell.) When the clock strikes midnight on Halloween, light the candle with a match and thrice recite the following incantation:
BRIMSTONE, MOON, AND WITCH’S FIRE, CANDLELIGHT’S BRIGHT SPELL, GOOD LUCK SHALL I NOW ACQUIRE, WORK THY MAGICK 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!
Gaze into the flame of the candle and fill your mind only with thoughts about good luck. Visualize the Wheel of Fortune turning in your favor. Allow yourself to genuinely feel lucky, as though you had just won a prize. The more emotion you put into your spellcasting, the better the outcome will be. It is also important to never doubt the power of a spell, otherwise your negative thoughts will inadvertently undermine its effectiveness.
Allow the candle to burn until sunrise (the morning of November 1) and the spell shall be fixed. Note: To prevent accidental fires from occurring, many witches place their candles in a sink or bathtub if they are to burn all night long unattended.
If the candle has not burned itself out by sunrise, you may now extinguish its flame by pinching it out with your moistened fingertips or by using a candle snuffer. Remember, as mentioned before, never blow out the flame with your breath because, according to old occult folklore, you will cause all of your good luck to blow away.
To peer into the future or into the realms of the unknown, sit before a mirror at midnight on Halloween. Place a black candle to the left of the mirror, and an orange candle to the right. With a match in each hand,light both candles at the same time, gaze into the reflection of your own eyes in the mirror and concentrate upon that which you desire to know until a vision (often misty at first) appears in the glass. Within this vision your answer may be found.
Another Halloween method of candle divination calls for a small cauldron to be filled with water in which a handful of mugwort gathered on Saint John’s Eve (June 23) has been steeped. (Mugwort is an herb that has long been used by witches to aid divination.) Light two pillar candles—one black and one orange—and hold them about one foot above the cauldron in your left and right hands, respectively. Concentrate upon whatever it is that you desire to know, and then recite it thirteen times in the form of a question as you tilt the candles so that the melted wax spills into the water below. Examine the patterns created by the black and orange wax to find a symbolic divinatory message.
