Candle magick, folklore, and spell ideas


candle magick
Candle magick is a fire-based magick. It is just the thing if you prefer quick and easy spells rather than long convoluted rituals.

This form of fire magick has existed since antiquity. Historically, those who wield magick had to make do with what was available for use. A candle used to light a dark room can be used for a spell with very little modification. Wax is easy to shape when heat is applied, so that candle can be re-formed into any needed shape. Any unmelted wax can also be reused to make other candles.

How to perform a candle spell

Many simple spells can be performed with just a candle, a small knife, matches, and perhaps some essential oils or herbs.

To perform a candle spell, find a candle that is appropriate to your needs, then inscribe the candle with sigils that are suitable to the task at hand.

Lightly anoint the candle with an essential oil (toward the wick to draw energy, or away from the wick to banish energy). Light the candle, and leave it lit until it burns out. Do not, however, leave it unattended.
