Candle Magic(k) - Pagan Meetup 20120810

"I'll light a candle for you."

Candle can be a stand-in for anything - elements, deities, directions; it's the intent that matters.

Ask three witches and get five answers -
* Burn out vs. put out
* Blow out vs. pinch
* One use only vs. multiple uses
* Okay to use inexpensive candles?

Colors are important but intent is more so
* White - all purpose, protection, blessing
* Pink - love and affection
* Green - earth, prosperity, fertility
* Red - fire, passion, vitality
* Blue - water, healing, peace
* Yellow - air, intellect, studying
* Purple - personal power, healing serious illness
* Brown - animal magic(k), earth magic(k)
* Black - absorb / banish negativity
* Orange - prosperity, legal issues, fruitful activity

Oils and "bind runes" - focus intent. Anoint the candle - design the runes to overlap in a pleasing pattern and carve into candle

* Use proper candle holders
* For ritual use, use same or similar candle holders
* Supervise lit candles
* Hot glass looks the same as cold glass
* Remove the stickers from the bottom
* Consider using the cauldron or fireplace for the candle

All about visualization - putting desire into physical form

Charcoal, frankincense, and smoke alarms don't get along
