A Witchs Lucky Candle Spell (Samhain)


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:




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.

Candle Spell Against Psychic Attack



You Will Need:

White candle

Red candle

Black candle

Imagine a blue ball of energy inside the candles. Caress the candles as you chant:

Goddess of Three, I call upon thee,
To protect from those who wish to harm me
Keep them from using the gift from thee
Keep them from using thy gift to harm me.

When you finish chanting, imagine the blue ball exploding into lines of blue. Imagine the lines surrounding you and wrapping you in warm blue energy. See the blue light as a shield. Know that it is unbreakable. Think about how it is the Goddess’ Light protecting you.

Then put the candles someplace where they can burn undisturbed and let them burn themselves out, sending all the energy into your shield. This spell is best performed during the full moon.

For longer effects you can make it a seven-day spell.

Candle Spell to Stop Harassment


Timing: During the waning moon.

Use a brown candle (an image candle, if you can) to represent the person who is harassing you.

Write the person’s name on the front and back of the candle.

On a small piece of parchment paper, write:

‘From now on, (name) will say nothing but sweet words about me and to me.
By the power of Aradia, so mote it be!’

Put a drop of honey in the middle of the paper and roll it into a ball.

Heat a knife, pin or your athame, make a gash in the candle (in its mouth, if it’s an image candle) and stuff the paper ball into it.

Let the candle burn a little while every night for an odd number of nights, to a maximum of nine nights. Throw the remnants into flowing water, but save some candle drippings or ash to sprinkle in the path of your oppressor.

To Reverse Spells Cast With Candle Magick


Light two black candles and chant:

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
And whosoever shall be casting a curse against me
Let them 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.

Do this spell for five consecutive nights (as close to midnight as possible) and each night chant the spell until the candles are spent.

Let’s Talk Witch – Candles & Colors

 Candles & Colors


I have had several people contact me in regards to the colors of the candles we have on this site. Each of the list are different and this is because each list comes from a different tradition. Not all traditions or paths agree on the same thing. Due to this fact, I was asked if I could find something that almost all paths and traditions might be able to agree upon. I can say it hasn’t been easy but I did run across an article that I believe (I said “I believe now!”) that everyone could agree upon. I hope this takes some of the confusion out of the candle color mystery. Enjoy!

Candles and Colors


Candles are a great part of the magic you will be performing in these pages. The colors of candles are said to obtain qualities, which can exhibit magical properties. These properties are attributed to the color of the candles, and the oils used to anoint them, as well as the herbs used in dressing them. You can anoint a candle with oils or herbs simply by rubbing them onto the candle. Concentrate on the desired effect of the spell while anointing the candle. The same can be done with herbs by sprinkling the top of the candle , in the hot wax, with the desired herb. Be sure to watch the candle closely while doing this, for the herbs are highly likely to catch fire and burn. Below is a guide to help you understand these attributes and their place in the magical scheme of things.


Red candles are used in matters dealing with strong emotions, such as love, and anger. For this reason it is often used in revenge, or passion based spells.


Blue candles are generally used in matters pertaining to the promotion of health, and the recovery of illnesses , or ailments. It also is used when one wants to embody trust, and empathy in the eyes of others.


Yellow candles are usually used in magic dealing with new beginnings, or peaceful changes. They are also burned when one wants to promote or encourage spiritual growth.


Green candles are often burned when matters of money are a concern. Green candles are also great for fertility spells, and are used in many healing ceremonies as well.


Black candles are used most often when one wants to add a little extra power to their practices. Black also embodies forceful attributes, and helps in matters which require immediate attention and resolution.


Purple candles are used when one is trying to obtain peace , or tranquility. Purple candles will help promote a relaxing environment. They are also commonly used in healing spells.


White candles are primarily used in spells concerning cleansings or purity. When one is performing healing spells, white candles will certainly not hurt either. You can also use them when working other general magic.


Pink Candles are almost exclusively used for matters dealing with romance, desire, sex, and fertility; however, they also promote peace.

Witchy Cat Graphics & Comments

Witch’s Healing Candle Spell

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:

Magic mend and candle burn,
Sickness end; good health return.
