Colour plays a big role when it comes to candle magic. The colour of a candle help focus the spellweavers magic and attract the magical energy of that intent.
Example, you want to attract more money into your life. You think of $100 notes which is the colour green, you use a green candle. However, you may also think of bars of gold, which in turn, requires a gold coloured candle. These little thoughts are what help focus the spellcaster and concentrate on their spell.
The colour of a candle is important to a spell, however, if you don’t have the right coloured candle, use a white candle as it contains all colours.
This guide doesn’t follow the Wiccan religion. These are the colours that resonate with me and what my family has practiced for generations, with some changes (sorry Nan!).
Like all guides, it is just that, a guide! You do not have to follow this or any other guide. Find what colour rings true to your purpose, focus on that and weave the greatest of magic.
