~ THE HISTORY OF CANDLE BURNING IN SPELL WORKS ~ Candle Magic is one form of magic and is a force that combines psychic energy with the powers of the will to produce supernatural effects. Candles have a long history in religion worship, magic & folklore. They provide light, thus illuminating the darkness and repelling evil spirits while attracting benevolent ones. In liturgy, they are offerings of fealty to a deity, in magic they are used in various spells & rituals while in folklore they are associated with the dead.
Candles have a unique place in our society today, and are also an incredible link with our past. Unlike anything else, candles convey messages of romance, warmth, spirituality, secret wishes and brightness, all with the simple construct of wax and wick. Embraced by almost every faith, creed and nationality, there is something special about a solitary flame and the energy exchange that it puts forth. It touches our souls. Who among us has not been be touched by the commonality of candles in our religions? People of all faiths and walks of life, and many different creeds, can join together in a candlelight vigil to grieve, or come together in prayer. Candles are unique tools indeed to link mankind to the Divine.
Candles are and always will be a path of light through our lives for it has roots stretching back to ancient times as a part of both religious ceremonies and magical rites. They are the symbol of peace, warmth, the link that unites us with the divine and keep us away from turmoil and hate. Sweetness surrounds us when we light a candle and thru its light, we ask the Creator to grant us a wish, purification of our actions and the redemption of our sins.
Lightning a candle is not only applying the match to the wick, it is the faith and understanding of the act we are burning candles for magical effect, spell-casting, and as an adjunct to prayer. That small light is what bonds us with God. Candles are a tool that helps us to achieve peace of mind, tranquility, a wish, a beacon that shines thru darkness. The brighter a candle light is, the more efficient its spiritual help.
In the old days, it was common to light a candle throughout the night in order to keep away the demons and evil influences. Also in some passages of the Leviticus, it is said God has talked to Moses asking about an offering of fire for seven consecutive days, and there are some people that still follow this tradition, same as when a nine days candle is offered to a recent departed relative or loved one.
The Egyptians have been credited for both the inventive use of soaking pithy reeds in animal fats for “rushlights”, and the early use of beeswax. As early as 3000 BC, beeswax candles looking pretty much the same as our beeswax candles do today–cone shaped and with a reed as a wick, have been found placed in tombs of rulers. Romans quickly adopted and improved the methods of candle making, adding a “wick” of woven fibers. Romans used these “candles” to illuminate their homes and places of worship. Although many ancient cultures also used clay type oil lamps for illumination, the principles were the same, a “wick” usually made of flax to hold the flame and “fuel” of animal fat, plant oils (such as olive oil) or beeswax. The word “candle” comes to us from the Latin candere, meaning “to shine.”
Throughout time, man decided that if fire was essential for surviving, it was also essential for his spiritual and religious needs. If you are feeling nervous, desperate, upset, take a white candle (the candle for all saints) look for a room that is the less cluttered room in the house. Make sure to close the curtains and with devotion and respect, light the white candle, and sit. Look at the flame, how it shines its light all around the room and slowly consumes. Soon you will feel relaxed, your nerves will calm down and slowly you will be receiving answers or spiritual help.
This light represents purity, the honest truth; shadows represent lies and deception, good against evil.Candles were used in the Roman times of persecution against the first Christians, therefore, their use in the Catholic Church ceremonies.
The purpose of lightning a candle may have several meanings:
*Light the path for the souls
*Be successful in a difficult love affair
*Peace within the home and family
*To learn the truth
*To determine a change in luck
*To help someone develop spiritual powers
*As protection against evil spirits
*To help a marriage that has lost its harmony
*To help a dear departed relative
*To pay homage to the saints or thank them for a favor granted
*To have a safe and lucky trip
*To help us to get rid of an undesirable person, physically and spiritually
~ SIGNIFICANCE OF THE COLORS OF CANDLES IN SPELLWORKS~ The major most important influence in the selection of candles for the use in spellworks has been The Master Book of Candle Burning by Henri Gamache.

~ THE VARIOUS CANDLES USED IN SPELLWORKS ~
Candles sizes vary in reference to their use and purpose, the biggest being the ones used in wedding ceremonies, to bring peace in the homes, move to better conditions in life, bring peace to a person are known as Altar Candles or Jumbo Candles 9” tall 1 1/2’ round.
As early as the 1930’s spiritual suppliers offered occult/spiritual workers figural or “image” candles for special uses. These candles were more expensive that the plain offertory candles but were used when workers were performing unusual or extremely strong spells, because their visual symbolism is easy to see and by carving names or other features in them, they can be personalized to represent individuals. Candles that are made to represent human figure – man or woman – can be used for good or bad, depending of the use and additional objects that surround them. For instance: for negative magick and evil: pins and needles to drive them mad, black arts oils, stones and crushed or broken glass to block their paths and black pepper to unleashed violence.
In addition to figure candles we have:
*Double Action Reversible Candles
*Seven Day Knob Candles
*Seven Wishes Glass Encased Candle
*Religious Novena Glass Candles
*Vigil Glass Encased Candles
*Unlabeled Plain Glass Encased Color Candles
Anointed and dedicated to the individual purpose they serve, they serve as constant reminders that it is the “religion” and “honoring” that is daily of your focus, regardless as to whether or not there is a spell candle present on the altar.
Votives are an excellent choice for candle magick work. Most often when you think of votives, you think of their association with Catholic mass and services. A Mass offered for a votum, is aspecial intention. So we frequently find in prayers the expression, votiva dona “gifts offered with desire [of receiving grace in return]”.
Votives have even derived their name from Latin “Votum” which means prayer, wish, desire/vow, promise to God. I like to think they are superb beacons and messengers. They are quick (usually can be burned completely in an evening or a day) and usually inexpensive. Those handy little glass votive holders are easy to be found and really contain the wax so you usually burn the entire candle without much waste at all. For this reason I find them exceptional value-wise and extremely handy to have around because they store easily and make “quick work” of things. Take comfort in the fact that many church sanctuaries also use votives for the parishioners to light for rememberences and special prayers. Because they are small but stocky, you may find it helpful to inscribe a small sigil, rune or magickal symbol on them.
Tapers are wonderful to work with as well. Quite often you can find excellent quality tapers on sale when stores change their stocks. As they are widely available in a variety of colors. Because they may be fragile and can break, long slender tapers should be carefully stored. Due to this fragility, they are best left either unscribed or with minimal inscription and enjoyed in a elegant standard type candleholder or some beautiful ritual candleholders.
Short squat pillars, mini-pillars and the larger column candles offer a unique opportunity because they can not only be inscribed with many magickal sigils, runes or drawings, but offer enough surface area to often etch in or write out the entire working. In fact, you may come across a need to not only work out prose on paper, but feel compelled to inscribe the entire candle with it. Even if left uncarved, multi-hour candles like these can continue to burn with the same energy you need daily until the entire candle is burned if you have a particular working that you know will take some time.
The last one listed is most excellent for those who want to do works without the 21 questions from friends and family who are wondering what your doing. But these candles can also be used to do good, providing they are surrounded with good and positive objects. It also depend the seriousness, dedication and sincere invocation put into it.
Prayers, invocations and reading the Bible is important for doing this kind of work, since the candle is a spiritual link to God. Candles are used mostly by those who want to succeed financially in life, a lover who has gone astray, a household/family or relative in distress. It is necessary to study the Table of Color of Candles and work with them accordingly to their own personal needs.
When doing spiritual work with a candle, a wooden table is the best, since it is a good spiritual conductor. Some people sprinkle the altar with Holy Water while praying to the “Righteous Judge” so their prayers will be heard. Black candles used in spiritual works are used to drive away enemies, break couples, confuse, using oils of Confusion, I can and you can not, or Go Away or others.
~ THE USE OF THE DEVIL CANDLE IN SPELLWORKS ~
Many Occult and ATR practioners consider the devil to be a conjurer and to have him on one’s side is to be helped by the master of all the arts. Some devil or Satan candles as it is known as come in the shape of the devil with a trident in his hand and surrounded by flames. These candles are burned on the altar along with the spell you are casting in order to obtain his aid.
The devil candle also comes in various colors and used for various spellworks:
*Red Devil Candles are used to sexual domination spells or revenge
*Green Devil Candles are used to make someone pay money that is owed and also to obtained money without much work.
*Black Devil Candles are used to drive unwanted associates away and to cause harm upon an enemy.
When used in benificiel rituals the Devil candle is burned only during the daylight. It is anointed with Black Arts oil and placed on the altar facing the wall. A wish is made and the candle is lit and burned for one hour. After this beginning ritual to gain the aid of the master conjurer any other ritual can be performed.
When used in hexing rituals, crossing, revenge, etc., the Devil candle is burned only at night. The Devil candle is anointed with any jinxing oil that corresponds with the spell that is being performed and placed on the altar facing forward. Supplications are made to him for help in achieving whatever the following ritual is designed for. After the candle is lit you may begin your ritual. The candle is lit and allowed to burn through the night. *IMPORTANT: when leaving a candle to burn overnight it is important to take precautions to make sure that any spell work does not turn into a tragedy. When burning figure candles of any kind it is best that you have a heat resistant bowl to put them in and make sure that you keep your pets away from your work space so they don’t knock them over.*
Remember though that with these “devil” candles and symbolism the idea in Occult and other ATR practices is not actually calling upon a demonic or evil spirit per se but a “hot” spirit. In Haitian Vodou these aggressive spirits are known as djabs. Hot and aggressive spirits are worked with a lot in ATRs hence the reason you’ll find images of the devil used to represent them.
What does the devil represent in people’s minds apart from evil? PASSION, Lust, Quick TEMPER, FIRE, Aggression, Trickery, Impatience, Carnal Desires, HEAT, QUICKNESS & Ability to work FAST, Control, Domination, you get the idea… The Devil embodies these ideas and this is the kind of force we need at times to get things moving. Demons can be worked with and similar imagery can be used to represent them.
Every worker needs to have at least a couple of aggressive spirits who get things done when the time is right because sometimes Spirit takes too long. At times your spirits may work too slow or decide not to work for you in certain situations especially those that may need a quick solution. That’s where the hot spirits come in. You can find them in many places especially the crossroads and graveyard. If you work with a spirit from the graveyard usually the ones who died badly or lived bad lives (murderer, thief, etc) will work best. Even though you can work with this energy I’m not suggesting that you take it lightly because with these spirits just as they are mad and HOT-tempered they can lash out at you so you have to be careful when doing this kind of work.
~ PREPARING A CANDLE IN SPELLWORKS~
Dressing a candle is using the appropriate oil that goes with the ritual. Some practitioners in the Caribbean or Brazil, tie around the candle strands of hair or pieces of the clothes of the intended person or victim. They can also use a piece of paper with the name and tie it around the candle and add the appropriate oils. When anointing the candle with oil, it is customary to hold it in the center and work from the center upwards, and then from the center downwards.
Offertory and figural candles are dressed by rubbing them: upward to draw and downward to repel with the appropriate occult oil. Some practitioners then sprinkle them with sachet powders or roll them in finely cut occult herbs selected for their specific spiritual powers. But if you know the astral color of the person, you can tie it to the candle and work the oil same as stated above.
Candles that are marked on behalf of a client is done in the form of a petition which consists of writing a person’s name and their request on a paper usually parchment and placing it under a candle.
Papers placed under a candle is known as “Burning a candle for him/her.” Placing court summonses under the candle of a saint before going to court is one way of petitioning the saint for aid in the matter. Pictures can also be placed in front of or under a candle depending on the purpose of the candle spell and oil used.
Free-standing candles are better known as pillar and taper candles which are placed on candle holders. When working with pillar candles it is always best to put a plate under them in order to avoid the wax getting onto your altar as hard wax tends to be a bit of a hassel to remove later not to mention the fact that their colors tend to stain altar cloths and if the altar is made of wood like most are the wood gets stained as well.
Tapers are best for spellworks that require various candles to be lit at once but always remember check the positioning of the candles prior to lighting. They should not set too close together that they effect they way their neighbor burns and should not be close to anything that may catch on fire.
Some candle spells require that the candle be burned a certain length at a time or a certain amount of hours (usually one hour) for several days. In other spells, the candle is required to move closer to or away from other candles over the course of the work.
When working with glass encased candles it is best to let them burn straight through but if you wish to burn them for a short period of time then relight them you may wish to have fireplace matches handy to relight them as the wick gets further down into the candle and those short matches no longer reach. Some practioners will light the candle first followed by the incense while others will light the incense first then candle. How you choose to do this it up to you.
~ READING SIGNS OF CANDLE BURNING IN SPELLWORKS ~
When performing spells with candles it is very important to pay attention to the manner in which the candle burns. Practioners of African-American and Afro-Caribbean traditions and Spiritists who light candles for clients often pay attention to and make a habit of noticing the manner in which the candles burn so that they can draw conclusions about their end results and if more work will be needed in order to insure success.
The following are the most common and effective ways to interpret Candles while I am sure there are many different other forms of interpretation for how they burn. If you follow the below suggestions, you will see fast results in your magical endeavors:
NORTHERN MOVEMENT OF FLAME: Something physical is manifesting so you will have to work for what you wish to achieve
EASTERN MOVEMENT OF FLAME: Something mental is manifesting so you need to think things through and have patience in situations.
SOUTHERN MOVEMENT OF FLAME: Something intense and short lived is manifesting. Success comes rapidly and with intensity
WESTERN MOVEMENT OF FLAME: The manifestation of strong magical intervention. The issue is too emotional and you are too involved. Step away for a while and clear your thoughts.
IF THE SMOKE WAFTS TOWARDS YOU: That your prayer has been heard and will be granted quickly.
IF THE SMOKE WAFTS AWAY FROM YOU: Perserverence will be needed to achieve your desire
IF THE SMOKE TURNS TOWARDS YOUR RIGHT: You will need to use a bit of patience with success coming from using your head.
IF THE SMOKE TURNS TOWARDS YOUR LEFT: You are becoming too emotionally involved with the situation and are in danger of subconsciously sabotaging yourself so that your prayer will not be answered.
THE FLAME FLARES, DIPS, GUTTERS AND FLARES AGAIN REPEATEDLY:
This is often seen as a sign that the person on whom you are working is subconsciously aware of your actions and may be responding partially, then fighting off your influence, then responding again. Be sure, however, that this behavour of the candle flame is not caused by the mundane fact that you have set the candle in a draft. If necessary, move the candle somewhere else and see if the repeated flaring up and dying away stops; if it does not stop, then it is to be considered a sign, and not simply a physical coincidence.
THERE IS A DIRTY, BLACK, SOOTY BURN ON THE GLASS CANDLE:
This means things are going to go hard — the spell may not work, the blessing may fail, the person is in deeper stress or trouble than you thought. If the work is being done against an enemy and the enemy’s candle burns sooty and dirty, then it is likely that the enemy is fighting your influences.
THE CANDLE GIVES A CLEAN, EVEN BURN:
That all will go well with the spell and that one will most likely get what one wishes for. If a glass encased candle burns and leaves no marks on the glass, that is best. If a free-standing candle leaves little or no residue, that is best.
A GLASS ENCASED CANDLE BURNS HALF CLEAN AND HALF DIRTY:
This indicates that there is hidden trouble with the person for whom the lights have been set or that someone is working against your wishes. Things will not go well at first, but by repeated spells you may get them to go better.
WHY DOES THE CANDLE HAVE MORE THEN ONE FLAME?
The Center or main flame represents the client. If candle is used for protection then the ones around the center represent the enemies. If it is to dominate then it means that the person is being helped by people.
WHY IS THE CANDLE FLAME FLICKERING?
This is a sign that there are spirits present.
WHY IS THE ENTIRE CANDLE INCLUDING THE WICK ON FIRE ?
The spell is being fought off by guardian spirits but more then likely the spell will work.
WHY DID THE CANDLE FLAME GO OUT DURING THE SPELL?
Another type of spell must be performed
CAN A CANDLE BE EXTINGUISHED AND THEN RELIGHT?
For the most part once a candle has been light is should remain so until the spell is completed. If you feel uncomfortable about leaving while a candle is lit then place the candle in the sink, tub or shower.
WHAT IF A CANDLE IS EXTINGUISHED AND THEN RELIGHTS ITSELF?
Your guardian spirits do not want you to turn the candle off because they detecting something good or bad and cannot effectivly assist you with the candle out.
WHAT IF A SEVEN DAY CANDLE BURNS OUT BEFORE THE SEVEN DAYS?
The spell is working fast and another must be lit immediately.
WHY DID THE CANDLE EXPLODE?
The candle prevented something from attacking you and/or alot of negative energy has been directed towards you or the client
WHAT DOES IT MEAN IF THE CANDLE DOES NOT BURN?
A spiritual cleansing must be done before before beginning the spell or you picked up a bad candle and need to replace it with another one.
WHAT IF THE CANDLE FLAME GOES OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF A SPELL?
If the spell is for self protection, this means that while you were performing the spell, witchcraft was directed your way and your spirits were unable to fight it off. If the spell was directed toward another individual, their spirits were able to fight the attack off and has alarmed the individual. Another type of spell must be performed.
WHY DOES THE CANDLE HAVE A HIGH FLAME?
The spell is going to work and be effective. A candle with a tall flame indicated the arrival of a stranger.
WHY DOES THE CANDLE HAVE A LOW FLAME?
The candle is working to remove obstacles blocking your way.
WHY DID THE CANDLE BURN THE GLASS TOTALLY BLACK?
If after the candle burns down and the glass it totally black it means that someone is throwing negativity at you and a cleansing of yourself and your home is needed.
WHY THE CANDLE IS BURNING THE TOP HALF OF THE GLASS BLACK ?
The spell was met with resistance before it began to work.
WHY THE CANDLE IS BURNING THE BOTTOM HALF OF THE GLASS BLACK ?
The spell was met with resistance at the end but cleared the way.
WHY THE CANDLE IS ONLY BURNING ON ONE SIDE ?
The spell was only partially effective which means either the wrong type of candle or candle dressing was used or it was made poorly at the candle factory.
WHAT IT MEANS IF THE GLASS CRACKS ?
The candle broke the negativity in the environment as a result from strong pressure from secret enemies working against you.
A FREE-STANDING CANDLE THAT RUNS AND MELTS ALOT WHILE BURNING:
This gives you an opportunity to observe the flow of wax for signs. For instance, if you are burning a bride-and-groom type candle for love, and the woman’s wax runs all over the man’s, then the woman desires the man more than he desires her. If you are burning a green money candle and the wax melts and runs down onto the monetary offering, then the spell is “eager to work” and the candle is “blessing the money.” Some people try to influence the way melting wax runs. They do this as an intentional part of the spell-work, to increase the likelihood that things will go the way they want. Others prefer to let nature take its course and to watch running wax for signs, without interfering in its movements.
A FREE-STANDING CANDLE THAT BURNS DOWN TO A PUDDLE OF WAX:
When this happens, most workers will examine the shape of the wax for a sign that may suggest an outcome regarding the matter at hand.
A CANDLE THAT LETS OUT ALOT OF SMOKE BUT BURNS AT THE END: Again, hidden trouble or someone working against your wishes. Things will not go well at first, but with repeated work you will overcome.
IF THE CANDLE GOES OUT BEFORE COMPLETELY BURNING:
This is a bad sign because it indicates that someone very strong is working against you or against the person on whose behalf you are setting the lights. You will have to start the entire job over from the beginning and you may need to use stronger means than you first employed.
IF THE CANDLE TIPS OVER AND FLAMES UP INTO A FIRE HAZARD:
Not only will the spell probably fail but there may be increased danger ahead for you or the client. In order to accomplish anything, you will have to start the entire job over from the beginning — but first do a thorough Uncrossing spell for everyone involved and ritually clean the premises before setting any more lights. Also make sure to keep small children and pets away from your workspace and put the candle in a heat resistant bowl.
IF THE CANDLE BURNS UP OVERLY FAST?
Generally a fast burn is good, but an overly-fast burn (compared to other times you have used the same kind of candle) means that although the work will go well, it may not last long. You might have to repeat the job at a later date. If you have set lights for several people and one person’s candle burns faster than the others, then that person is most affected by the work, but the influence may not last long enough to produce a permanent change.
HOW DO I PUT A CANDLE FLAME OUT ?
Candle flames can be extinguished by using a candle snuffer which is the best option, by pinching the flame out with your fingers or by waving a fan. NEVER BLOW OUT A CANDLE!!
HOW CAN I MAKE MY CANDLE SPELLS MOST EFFECTIVE?
By using the appropriate incense, oils, powders, poppets and other instruments in your spellwork BUT above all else it is YOUR FAITH in your own work.
~ THE DISPOSAL OF USED CANDLE WAX IN SPELLWORKS~
In the occult and many of the African traditions the disposal of the remaining wax if any depends on the type of spell used and what the worker instructed the client to do if the client was to work the spell themselves.
Should the purpose of the spell be to bring about blessings, money drawing, love drawing or home protection, the materials can be wrapped in a cloth in the color of the spell and bury them in the yard. For businesses they can be buried at the front door to draw customers, money and success.
If the purpose of the spell is to remove a hex or a crossed condition the materials are to be wrapped in a black cloth and thrown into running water that runs away from the house or if you can toss it or bury it in the yard of the person who sent it. You can also take it to the crossroads and toss it onto the center of the crossroads over your left shoulder and walk away without turning back. It is important to never bury remains from negative spells in one’s own yard.
To get someone to move, you can divide the materials such as Hot Foot Powder with the remains of the candle and beginning with the nearest crossroads closest to where the person lives, toss the ingredients then travel away from their house dropping off pieces of the material at every crossroad one encounters until you have gotten rid of all the materials used in the spell. This spell is done easier in the country then in the city cause crossroads tend to be several miles apart from one another where as in the city the crossroads then be almost one top of the other. When performing this spell in the city you would only count intersections with traffic lights. This is a great spell to perform if you have happen to be one of those people that live in the country and have to drive an hour or more to get to work.
Should the intention of the spell be of the utmost serious of nature, use as irreparably harmful and especially if the spell contains the infamous graveyard dirt or goofer dust one can dispose of the material in a graveyard. The wax and other remnants are placed in a miniature coffin, buried, and marked by a miniature headstone with the enemy’s name on it.
When setting such a spell to rest, many workers also sprinkle a mixture of sulphur powder and salt around the grave, then walk home and don’t look back. If you cannot gain access to a graveyard at night since many of the modern graveyards have fences all around the property it is best to just place the materials inside a paper bag and toss it over the fence while walking by.
~ CANDLES AND DREAM INTERPRETATION IN SPELLWORKS~
Have you ever dreamt about being pursued, it means there are those wishing you ill and working against you. On a Thursday night, light a yellow candle and ask St. Lazarus to clear your way and take all those bad thoughts away. If you have a statue or stamp of St. Lazarus, put a small glass next to him with rum and smoke him with tobacco.
Unable to wake up from you dream and trying to? It means someone you think as a close friend is working against you. Find out your color and astral sign, light the candle and ask your Spiritual guide for help.
Dreaming about water, running under the rain, house full of water, unable to close the water faucet? This dream means the presence of many negative spirits that surround you and your Spiritual Guide is fighting against. Water represents that they are trying to “drown” you in despair and problems.
