Memorial Candles --- These are usually the very largest of the votive candles they can be without a glass jar and just in a candle hold but it is safer to use the ones that come in a glass jar. Ordinarily they are lit at midnight or sunrise to honor a birthday or anniversary or to remember a deceased loved one.
White is usually preferred. I will refer to this type of candle in my next post on Jar candles.
Moon-shape candles---Usually crescent shape to be used for Lunar magick.
Can replace Goddess figure in Goddess rituals. Use shape that
corresponds to the aspect of the goddess IE: right hand crescent for maiden,
Full for mother/lover, left hand crescent for waning or crone/wise woman.
Anoint with Mummy Oil and place on an altar along with a burner filled with Power Incense. Light the incense first and allow it to burn for ten to fifteen minutes, while you concentrate on the project at hand. Then light the candle and repeat this chant several times: As the fragrance rises ever loftier, as the light glows ever lovelier, banish the forces which hinder my way, light the path to victory this day.
For your immediate information I will give you the basic information here to start---
Seven-Day Novena: This long-burning candle is housed within a thick, heat resistant glass, and comes in three varieties: Plain Novena, the Spiritual Novena, and the Specialty Novena. Each comes unscented and in a variety of colored wax and glass casings. The different one’s dedicated to Saints will be discussed in the next post on Jar Candles.
Praying Hands Candle--- Burn praying hands candle to heal a person who is sick. As they say Faith can works miracles! (But I also recommend seeing a Doctor or going to the hospital) Dress candle with Healing Oil. Write your petition and place in a dish of Holy Water. Read Psalm 30 and concentrate on your request. This can also work the same as the Guardian Angel Candle if you cannot find a Guardian Angel candle, it’s usually in white
Special Note:Some Novena Candles are also considered Protection Candles.
Pyramid Candles— usually used to either win court cases or money petition especially if designed with an eye on it. Sometimes scented, sometimes not scented Aligns with higher planes energies. Excellent for banishing and drawing. Write your complete wish on the bottom.
On each side of the pyramid write the word or phrase that describes how your wish would affect the four levels of your awareness. When dressing this candle bring the oil downward from the tip to the base and picture the energy entering the candle and grounding into your life.
If using it to rid your life of something dress the candle from base to tip.
Using ritual dove`s blood ink, write a petition for the favor you want on parchment paper or brown paper and place it under this candle. As the candle burns it will draw your desired result to you or banish it from you. Again depending upon your intent.
Rebirthing Candle: A candle, with three or more days of burning time that is used to guide the dead across to peace and rest. Usually a very thick white pillar candle which for safety sake should be placed in a large glass holder such as the types referred to as Hurricane glass holders. This should be started from the moment of death or notified of death to one day after burial if possible. If following a natural burial (without embalming) or are planning Cremation then burn for three days and nights praying for the soul of the departed to find their way to the light, heaven, the summer land or what your religious beliefs refer to the afterlife so that they can be born into their new, spiritual life.
Red- Cause problems in enemies love life Red Skull Candles are used in spells to cause love to die either between the petitioner and the one who loves them or between two people other than the petitioner or to make him or her fall out of love with another person. It can be used to force someone physically to move away. Of course, the reverse could also be attempted depending on the Moon Cycle. Be careful in this use.
Red skull candles are Suitable for Thanatos-Sex Magick (sevitors, succubi), Adamu-Styled workings, Lilith-Fire workings, etc use with caution.
Yellow---very hard to find --used to bend someone to your will, when you can not find one in yellow substitute a while skull candle instead.
See also Ompalos candle ---- Snake some times called Bust Away Candle: This candle is used to break free or "bust away" from evil. It is used to break free of undesirable conditions, situations or habits.
Snake candles are burned for protection from all evil. The purpose of the snake candle is to acknowledge that there are light and dark forces in all things, and the evil influences must be negated before the good can blossom and take over. Anoint the Snake candle with Protection Oil and use it once a month to keep the home free from all harm.
Use for Love, Spiritual Blessing and Peaceful Home or returning lovers, and for protection and legal work.
The first is to burn it all at once--once lit let it burn because to some practioners why burn it in section as that seems to defeat the potency of the spell work at that rate you might as well burn 3 separate candles for each purpose.
- 1 Triple Action Candle
Take the coffin nail or pin and carve a short phrase or symbol into each colored section of the candle.
your petition on parchment paper with Dragon´s Blood Ink and place under
candle. It’s various uses run from love,
protection, moon magic to sinister things---intent is the focus.
Vigil Candle: Any candle will suffice when burnt not only for a long period of time for another's benefit but also to peacefully demonstrate for a cause or action.
Wizard: Spirit guide and spirit guardian spells. Again an unusual candle to find, (see Owl if find unburned at yard sale) Usually you will find it as if it were complete designed as a wizard figure, but if you find it in one color see what color it is to determine the type of word.
Zodiac or Astrological Candle: This candle is used to represent each of the twelve signs of the Zodiac. It is specifically colored, scented, and adorned with the information pertinent to the individual sign. Its use, normally in conjunction with other candles, is to represent your goal or target. The Zodiac Candle would be placed on the altar and then moved closer to the target candle to simulate the merging of the two.
With any candle be it pillar, figure, jar or what ever, intent and will is what will generate the energy, the imagery, the colors help focus that intent and will.
I could have gotten angry and blown up at him but he had worked it so that everyone else was charmed by him, so I just smiled and worked my best with him taking care never to reveal my true feelings about him to anyone, the worst that I would say is "Oh sometimes we see things differently"
Next I will list the Jar Candles.
