A candle is a solid block of wax with an embedded ignitable wick that provides light, and in some cases, a fragrance. It can also be used to provide heat, or as a method of keeping time.
For a candle to burn, a heat source, commonly a naked flame, is used to light the candle’s wick, which melts and vaporizes a small amount of fuel the wax. Once vaporized, the fuel combines with oxygen in the atmosphere to ignite and form a constant flame. This flame provides sufficient heat to keep the candle burning via a self-sustaining chain of events: the heat of the flame melts the top of the mass of solid fuel, the liquefied fuel then moves upward through the wick via capillary action, the liquefied fuel finally vaporizes to burn within the candle’s flame.
As the mass of solid fuel is melted and consumed, the candle becomes shorter. Portions of the wick that are not emitting vaporized fuel are consumed in the flame. The incineration of the wick limits the exposed length of the wick, thus maintaining a constant burning temperature and rate of fuel consumption. In modern candles, the wick is constructed so that it curves over as it burns. This ensures that the end of the wick gets oxygen and is then consumed by fire, a self-trimming wick.
In Witchcraft and related forms of the candle is frequently used on the altar to represent the presence of the God and Goddess, and in the four corners of a ritual circle to represent the presence of the four classical elements: Fire, Earth, Air, and Water. When used in this manner, lighting and extinguishing the candle marks the opening and closing of the ritual. The candle is also frequently used for magical meditative purposes. Altar candles are traditionally thick tall candles or long tapers which are available in many colors. In Witchcraft, the candles that are used come in a variety of colors, depending on the nature of the ritual or custom at hand. Some Witchcraft may use red, green, blue, yellow and white or purple candles to represent the elements.
Using candles in magic based on Witchcraft beliefs is known as “Sympathetic Magic” in that it is believed the candle represents the outcome the person is wanting. It is a “Like Attracts Like” form of magical practice. For example, if a person is looking for a job or needs extra income a green candle would be used. For romance, a red candle would be used red is a universal color of love and hearts. There is an additional belief that the smoke from the candles will take the prayer requests, desires, or wishes up to the gods.
If you’re just starting to explore Witchcraft, you’ve gotta “Let It Burn”. Candles are a staple item in any magical tool kit. They’re used to amplify and release energy, and they can either be left unlit around your pad to promote positive vibes or used lit in rituals and spells.
Magic Candle is driven by the element of fire, which represents transformation. Fire changes everything it interacts with, whether it’s turning a love letter into ashes. This transformational energy is what you’re channeling in Magic Candle, encouraging and accelerating changes in your life.
The act of burning is believed to connect the physical world to the spiritual realm, but the other key element here is about using different candle colors. This is called color magic. Different colors store different types of energy, and this is what we’re trying to access when we burn a candle of that color. Burning candles is an easy way to access that color’s energy, but it’s not the only way.
