You will need:
white candle

Goddess of Three, I call upon thee,
To protect from those who wish to harm me

(the wishing candle spell)

Be forewarned, changing may make some parts of your life stronger, yet other parts weaker.

– A special candle chosen especially for the spell
– A pentacle with corresponding symbols like Saturn and symbols of what you wish to change written on it.
– 4 black candles smaller than the special candle (wishing candle)

Set up altar with the four candles in each corner, and in the center put the pentacle and the
wishing candle over it. Wait to do the spell until the full moon, and then make sure you do it
at night and where the stars are in full view.

On the new moon, look unto the sky for the 7 brightest stars. Hold up a lighter and say/chant:

“I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish this night.
For change of ______ this night I ask, and by the flame, I ask it last.
Seven brightest stars in the sky, light the flame I hold high.”

With this light your lighter, light the wishing candle, and light the little candles in it’s flame.
Now go about business as usual.

Let’s Talk Witch – Color Magic

Let’s Talk Witch – COLOR MAGIC


We all use and make decisions about color in our daily lives— what colors we wear, which paints we use, the cars we drive, the food we eat, even the shampoos we buy. A whole host of decisions we make every day are at least partly decided by color. Most people have a favorite color. Mine is purple, and most of my home is decorated in shades of this color. Even my cloak is a beautiful shade of heather. It is a color that I am comfortable with. You will have your own favorite shade that features prominently in your life— and hopefully you have an understanding partner if your favorite color is acid green or Barbie pink!

The use of color can really enhance your magic and spell work, because each color lends its own energy and its associations to your spells and rituals. There are many ways to include color magic in your work— from candle magic to knot magic, from spell bags to plant magic. In fact, all of your magic will be greatly enhanced by your own knowledge of which colors work in which ways. I believe that there is no right or wrong color chart; what works for one will not necessarily work for all. If a certain color means a certain thing to you, who’s to say that you’re wrong and some impersonal chart is right? For example, when you think of the Goddess, do you see her as white? Silver? Gold? Blue? Who’s to tell you which is the right color?

The right color is the one with which you feel confident and comfortable working. And the right colors are the ones you can remember. If you want to create a spell spontaneously, you don’t want to have to go looking for a color-correspondence chart to find out which color works in a certain way. You have to trust what’s in your heart and work in a way that is true to you. I suggest you create your own color chart in your Book of Shadows. Spend some time thinking about what each color evokes for you and write it down. If you need some guidelines, below is the basic list I use in my own magic. Maybe it will give you a starting point or help you add to your own list. If you already work with color, trying exploring some of the more intricate shades of each color to expand your catalog.

White: protection and purity; use in all magick as a universal color
Black: to absorb negativity and spirit contact; for banishing spells
Yellow: confidence and growth; for harmony spells
Red: strength and passion; for power spells
Blue: health and patience; for awareness spells
Purple: peace and meditation; for blessing and spells
Pink: relaxation and friendship; for love spells
Green: nature and Fae magic; for wealth
Brown: earth and animals; for grounding spells
Orange: luck and vitality; for strength spells
Silver: the Goddess and the moon; for balance spells
Gold: the God and the sun; for power spells

Every color, of course, has varying shades— from pastel to deep or bright. Make your list as simple or as complicated as you like. A good way to build your own list is to have someone read off colors to you and you say the first thing that comes into your head that you associate with each color. That way, you will know that you are working with what’s true to your heart and with something that you will remember.

The ways in which you can use color in your magic are as varied as the colors themselves. Once you have your own color chart, there are many ways to incorporate each color into your magickal workings.

Let’s Talk Witch – Candle Magic Basics

Candle Magic Basics


Candle Magic has been around for many years. It’s an easy, yet powerful form of magic that can help you apply the energies of the body with the powers of the mind to obtain your desires. Some candle magic may have to be repeated over a period of days. Therefore, you will want to place your candles in an area that will not be disturbed. It’s best to avoid rooms with a TV, radio noise or disturbances of any kind. Candle magic should be performed in a low traffic area whenever possible. A bedroom is often ideal for such work.

As with all magical tools, the candle made by the practitioner for a specific purpose captures the energy of the practitioner. Some prefer to work with beeswax candles, as they believe these are more powerful because they are produced from nature. But any type of candles can be used for candle magic. Just remember to cleanse and consecrate them prior to use.

Cleansing removes all the negative energies that the candle may have picked up along the way. You want your candles to be as free of psychic debris as possible. Submerge the candle in salt (sea salt if possible) and then ask the God and Goddess to bless it. No formal words or ritual is needed. Simply speak from your heart.

Many Wiccans like to dress their candle with oil. Use whatever oil you prefer. If your candle will be burned to bring something to you, rub the oil on the candle in a downward motion from the top to the middle and then from the bottom to the middle. To send something away from you, rub the oil from the middle of the candle out to the ends. Never make a back and forth motion as this defeats the purpose. Dab the remaining oil from your fingers onto your third eye and on your breastbone. Then say the following:

“I cleanse and consecrate this candle in the name of the God and Goddess. May it burn with strength in the service of the light.”

State and/ or visualize your intent for the candle as you light it.

Some will also inscribe their candle with a name or word to represent its purpose. If you have an Athame, you can use it to inscribe your candle. The same principle as dressing the candle is used. To draw something to you, write from the top to the middle, and then from the bottom to the middle. To repel things, write from the middle to the ends. Next is a list of traditional candle colors used in magic, with a brief description of their most common magical uses. White candles can be used as a substitute for any color. Keep lots on hand!

WOTC Extra – White Candle Spell for Blessings


Get a white candle — either a plain one (offertory, pillar, or taper) or a figural one in the gender of the person you want to bless. Carve the person’s full name on the candle, then dress it with Blessing Oil or Holy Oil. For more power, you may place a name-paper of the person, or a photo, or some personal item of theirs (such as a bit of hair or a snippet of clothing) either under the candle or next to it. One easy way to do this is to place the paper or personal concerns under an overturned saucer and put the candle on top of the saucer.

Burn a portion of the candle every day for seven days, pinching it out between burnings. As you light it each day, say this

[Name], May you be blessed
May all good things come to you
May nothing whatsoever harm you
May your heart be light
May your travels be safe
May your health be good
May your mind be sound
May your friendships sustain you
May you be blessed in every way

* If you have a special request for this person (such as that they find a lover, get a good job, come home safely from a war, or whatever), just add it to the list.

Some people use a large pillar-type candle and keep it going for longer than seven days. They may make a habit of burning such a candle every day — or once a week, on Sundays — for as long as their friend or relative needs help, even doing so for months at a time. If the candle is large and it is to be burned in this way, it should be re-dressed with Blessing Oil or Holy Oil once a week: after the initial dressing, you can drop a tiny bit of oil into the “well” or hole in such a large candle just before lighting it each time.

Let’s Talk Witch – Candle Spells

 Let’s Talk Witch – Candle Spells

Candle spells are probably one of the most commonly used spells for many witches. They are simple to perform and often used in a ‘set and forget’ manner.

A candle spell involves taking a candle of the appropriate colour, inscribing your wish upon it, anointing the candle with an oil blend in the direction most suited to your purpose and burning the candle. If you can’t find or can’t afford the right colour, a plain white or beeswax candle with ribbon or something else in the right colours around it will work just as well. Use what you have or can find. Colour choices can be based on what that colour means regarding the purpose or what day of the week and planetary influence you are wanting to draw help from.

Inscribing the candle can be done with an athame, although I always think you’d need to have a pretty big candle or this would be somewhat unwieldy. My favourite tool for inscribing candles is a pearl headed florists pin that came from my wedding bouquet. It’s big enough to hold comfortably, but small enough to write tiny letters if that’s what I need.

An alternative to inscribing candles is to write your wish on a small piece of paper— something shaped like a ribbon— or draw a sigil and wrap it around your candle. It can be held in place with melted candle wax. Make sure that your candle is on or in a heatproof dish as this will catch fire.

I’ve seen plenty of discussion about the directions used when inscribing and anointing candles. I learned it as finding the candle’s middle point and for a drawing to you or building spell, working from both ends toward that point. For destructive, removing or banishing then you’d work away from the middle toward each end.

A friend always holds the candle with the base toward her and for a drawing spell, will work from wick to base (always careful to hold the candle so that it’s working toward her). For a banishing, she’ll work from base to wick.

The thing is, you are the magic. Whatever you believe or feels right to you will work for you. As long as you’re clear about the intent behind your spell. You can rub the oil or inscribe your words around and around if that’s what you feel you need to do. (Although in some traditions twisting the candle when anointing is the practice for manipulative spells).

As you are anointing your candle, you need to be completely focused on your purpose. See it working, see (like a movie in your head) the results you want and see how they come about. I did a money spell and saw my partner reading the winning numbers online and calling out to me that we’d won $ 10,000. I could hear the excitement in his voice and see our numbers on the computer screen. We didn’t win that one, but a month later he won the same amount in a radio competition. As stated earlier, be specific, be clear about the way your results will occur. When you feel you’ve poured as much of this into your candle as it will take, light it.

Some books will tell you that you must never use matches because of their sulphur and brimstone content and that this will bring unwanted energies to your candle. Other books say that you should only use matches as they’re made from natural products not plastic and gases raped from the earth. Again— use what comes to hand and feels right to you. If it bothers you and you don’t have the right ones available, light another candle separately (birthday cake candles work well) and use that candle to light your spell candle.

Stay focused on your candle as it’s burning. Keep that movie running in your head. Raise some energy and direct it into the candle. How long you leave your candle burning is up to you.

• Do you want to repeat this process every night for a week? This can make for a heavy duty spell. If this is what you want to do, mark the candle into 7 equal sections before beginning, or there are Seven Day Candles available— they have seven ‘knobs’ up their length, but simple marks are fine.
• Do you want to repeat it once a month on the full moon and spend a long time reinforcing the energies of this spell?
• Do you want to make it all happen right now?
• Do you want to use part of the candle in another form of the spell?

For example tying it in a bundle with herbs and burying it or melting it down and making a talisman from it.
One of the other points of discussion around candles is whether they should be blown out, snuffed, pinched or left to burn out completely. I’ve read that blowing it out is Air overpowering Fire and is offensive to Fire elementals. Similarly, that snuffing or pinching is snuffing or pinching out your desire. Burning a spell candle out completely is often unsafe (especially if you have a candle that will burn for 6 or more hours) and is of no use if you are doing a seven day candle spell. I can give you reasons why each one is right and wrong. Don’t fool yourself that any form is more or less disrespectful than others. Either way, by putting out the flame, the Fire element is being overpowered. You need to follow what works for you.

Personally, I blow mine out and picture my wish being blown toward what is needed for it to get results. For some spells, I let it burn out completely (safely of course). Some of the smaller votives can be good for this, or if it’s a little wish, birthday cake candles can work too.

Disposing of the candle remnants is also a choice you will have to make. I used to bury candle ends to complete the spell, but was told that depending on the composition of the candle, this could be poisoning the earth it was buried in. One friend flung her ends into the fire, another saved them, then cleansed them and melted them down to make new candles from the ends. Yet another friend saves his partial spell candles and uses them again for a similar spell. The build-up of energy from repeated spells makes them more powerful.

There is plenty of folklore about paying attention to the way a candle burns. If the flame is abnormally high, if it dances, leans toward a specific direction or the ways the melted wax drips. Sometimes there may be a message in this, but first, please check that it’s not simply in a draft. Additionally a cheap candle may drip more than an expensive one. Too many people on this path see something spooky where there really isn’t. Be wary of seeing messages in everything you do. Sometimes a candle drip is just a candle drip.

An important note about candle safety— many house fires are caused by candles. It’s hard to imagine that the tiny flame on a candle can turn into something so destructive but it is still a fire regardless of size. Always make sure that nothing can blow or drape over your candle flame. Things like curtains, sleeves and long hair can easily blow onto a candle especially in a draft and lead to disaster. Another safety tip is that a metal candle holder will heat up and can cause whatever it is sitting on to smoulder. I’ve also lost a few glass candle holders when the candle burned down low. Some just crack but others explode into a shower of fine flying glass splinters. Never assume that a candle holder is heat-proof. Always check.
