ANGEL Candles they come in a variety of colors, and according to color, used for healing, higher learning, spirituality, creativity and workings with angel magick or angel rituals, see also Guardian Angel candles.
Astral Candles: These are "Personal Candles" of colors and shapes you feel right for you or another person. They can be substituted for Zodiac candles.
•"Baphomet" or "Sabbatic Goat Candle" Some people confuses these with the Devil candles, two totally different styles and use. The Baphomet candle is the most sacred symbol of witchcraft and has been referred to as the God of the Witches, possibly in relation to the pagan god Pan, Use it to increase one's powers in any situation, to attract love, money or better health and to repel unfavorable influences.
Charka candles: usually these types of candles are enclosed in glass, but I have seen them in pillar or freestanding form. They contain the seven colors of the energy vortexes of the body: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, and white.
Some candle makers pour the colors from red to white, that is from root charka to crown where others may pour the colors from white or crown to red or root.
The charkas candles work great for meditation, cleansing of body and mind, house blessings, and other activities where you feel you need the full spectrum of color in the magickal activity
The wax will drip in the direction that is best for you to take, not necessarily the one you might want, but you will be told what is best based on your present abilities or location to move to.
•"Cross" or "Crucifix" candles: there are two types with two different designs and each has their own specific name.
Any situation which requires the use of a revising candle in addition to the dehexing candle is always a good combination the Reversible Color is usually found in a combination of Red and Black, with the Black absorbing the incoming energy and the Red concentrating it, adding any tidbits of your making, and returning it to the sender with interest.
•"Devil" – Carved into the likeness of the devil, this candle`s purpose however lies within whichever direction you choose to work. .The color used in rituals is a matter of personal preference. Devil candles are used for exorcism rites, for spells to win the love of another, to clear one's home of dark forces, and for hexing an enemy.
Dolphin: Ocean and water magick. Promotes the oneness with nature and harmony
with natural forces on all levels and planes
Dragon: Power and protection. If you are into Dragon magick or workings this is an excellent candle to burn during your most potent personal protection spells or rituals. Anoint with Dragon's blood oil and burn Dragon's blood incense as well.
Floating Candles: These do exactly what their name suggests they
float in liquid, usually water. These
candles work well for employing equal balance of water and fire elements in
your working, and work wonderfully for scrying. Simply fill a bowl with water,
light the candles, set them afloat in the bowl, turn out the lights, relax, let
the candles settle then gaze into the bowl
As an Altar Candle for a magickal ritual, use the glass tapers. A neutral yet high vibrational oil in a thick crystal taper burns long after your Magick is complete.
SPECIAL NOTE: As with any open flame candle burn in a very safe place out of reach of children and animals, if you live in an area that is prone to earthquakes do what you can to make it safe, if you live in an area prone to tornado's or hurricanes, if you are at home and are alerted, for safety put the flame out, you can always re-light it ritually after all danger has passed.
GUARDIAN ANGEL IMAGE CANDLE - White Guardian Angel Candle Light candle for protection or guidance.
The Guardian Flame Candle: There are many magicians who will
only light a ritual candle with the "Sacred Flame" that has been
dedicated to a Deity. This flame stands as a guardian in the home or temple.
The glass Oil Candle is excellent for his purpose, this is much like in the Catholic church where they have a perpetual flame enclosed lamp called a Sanctuary Lamp, to indicate the presence of God at the altar.
