Depending on your goal, you will need to choose a candle color that is appropriate for your task.

Different colors represent different things, for example, if you want to use this spell to gain money, you choose a green candle, because green represents money (as well as other things). If you wanted love, you would use a pink candle (or red if it's actually lust you want). Take the candle and make 7 notches in it, all equally apart. Using virgin olive oil, dress the candle, rubbing the oil on it from the middle to the bottom, then the middle to the top. Place the candle in a sturdy candle holder (preferably metal, glass may shatter) and light the candle. Concentrate on your task while the candle burns down to the first notch. Burn the candle each night to the next notch until it has_completely burned out. Look at any god correspondence chart on a wiccan website to see which color you want for the different types of spells you could adapt the above basic one to. You can also write out what you want in rhyme and burn it after saying it like an incantation. 3x3 times works well. Keep any ashes and wax and make into a ball as a Talisman or keep in a spell box in case you wish to reverse the spell.


Candle rituals have been around for centuries. You light the candles, maybe close your eyes while repeating a spell or that which you wish for and visualizing it coming true. It is a combination of the need or desire, and the ability to visualize the outcome. Candle burning spells and rituals are very easy to do and to have success with if they are done correctly and you truly believe. The different colors of candles each have their own symbolism.

Here is a table of the colors and their meanings.

White: truth, purity

Red: love, health, sex, strength

Green: money, luck, fertility

Black: discord, evil, negativity, confusion

Brown: neutrality, uncertainty, hesitation

Pink: love, morality, honor

Purple: power, business progress, ambition

Orange: attraction, stimulation

Greenish Yellow: jealousy, anger, discord

Gray: neutrality, stalemate, negativity

Light Blue: tranquility, patience, health

Dark Blue: depression, changeability

Candle spells can be very easy or complicated. It all depends on how much time you want to put into a ritual. It can be as simple as lighting a green candle and chanting... money money come to me. It can also be very long and_complicated lasting several days with the repositioning of the candles each day. The choice is always yours. The first thing you want to do is get the appropriate color candles for your particular desire. Then you need to anoint the candle with oil. Olive oil will do fine. You need to rub the candle with the oil from the middle outward to the ends. As you are doing this you need to be thinking of your desired goal. Then sit and meditate on your desire after lighting the candles, then read your spell or chant your appropriate mantra. You don't need some elaborate spell with a bunch of big words or words you don't even know how to pronounce. You can make your own spells or rituals. Think of your desire then make a simple little rhyme that tells about your desire in it. It doesn't even have to rhyme. This is all about will power, the power of positive thinking, and creative visualization. If you can do these things then you will send those vibrations out into the universe and eventually they will materialize.


Pink Candle Good Luck/Friendship Oil Pink silk Ribbon White Silk Ribbon

Cast the Circle, Arrange altar, Invoke Goddess and God

You will want to anoint the pink with Good Luck oil all the while thinking of the friends you want to make. Imagine yourself laughing with them, going out with them. Really see yourself with them. After your candle has been anointed, you may light it. At this point you may call out the things that are important to you in a friend: honesty, trust, open mindedness, humor, whatever. As you light the candle, see the flame as being the energy that burns between any two close friends. When this is completed, take your two pieces of silk ribbon and weave them together. Simply winding them around each other will do. While you do this, think of bringing that friend closer to you. This binding process is reminiscent of pagan handfasting rituals. You are binding that friend to you, making them loyal to you, a way any good friend should be. You do not want to bind a specific person to you, as that kind of magic is harmful since is harms the other person's free will. Only bind the idea of the perfect friend to you. Once you have done this, tie the ribbon to the base of your candle as best as you can. The candle's light is a beacon to bring friendship to you and another person. When this is done, you may wish to sit and meditate on the spell that you have just cast, sending your energies out to bring that perfect friend to you. When you feel that your spell has been completed, then it has. Let your candle burn all the way out and release your circle, thanking the Goddess and the God.


Light a candle (I tend to use a blessed white tea candle) and place it by the window sill at night. This is you calling out to your love.


take an orange candle anointed with cinnamon oil, clove, or lotus oil. Light the candle and say 3 times: "brimstone, moon, and witch's fire, candlelights bright spell, good luck shall I now acquire, work thy magic well. Midnight twelve, the witching hour, bring the luck I seek. By wax and wick now work thy power as these words I speak. Harming none, this spell is done. By law of three, so mote it be!" Do this spell at midnight.


Timing: During the waning moon. Use a brown candle (an image candle, if you can) to represent the person who is harassing you. Write the person's name on the front and back of the candle. On a small piece of parchment paper, write: 'From now on, (name) will say nothing but sweet words about me and to me. By the power of Aradia, so mote it be!' Put a drop of honey in the middle of the paper and roll it into a ball. Heat a knife, pin or your athame, make a gash in the candle (in its mouth, if it's an image candle) and stuff the paper ball into it. Let the candle burn a little while every night for an odd number of nights, to a maximum of nine nights. Throw the remnants into flowing water, but save some candle drippings or ash to sprinkle in the path of your oppressor.


Get a large white candle, the kind that drips wax, and set it up on a tray. Affix to it a photograph or other image of the person you wish to bind. Make a ring of sea salt around it. Make a second ring with protective herbs. Some dried rosemary from the kitchen will not break your bank. Or use sage if you like. Fill the rest of the tray with images that represent what you are binding the person from: pictures of your family, keys to your house, legal documents, whatever.

If the problem is too complex for images, write what the person is bound from on slips of paper and place them around the candle. Maybe they are gossiping and making your life a misery. Write it down and explain what you want stopped. Papyrus, or good thick paper made from cotton or linen work best for this. I have pinched the first blank page of old books at sales! Use red ink if you are angry, purple ink if you are sad. Wrap the candle and the image with black thread (use cotton tread or linen or even wool, if possible).

Say out loud what you are Binding the person from. Light the candle and leave it burn until the wax begins to drip over the thread and image. Burn it every day for a week, until the image is thick with wax. Use this as a meditation device to direct your will to Binding the person. You will have direct results if you have a just reason for this spell. You can also Bind a person from harming themselves.


Light two black candles and chant:

In the name of the Gods and all ye Spirits

In the name of Kernunnos and the light and the dark

And the Gods of the Netherworld

And whosoever shall be casting a curse against me

Let them suffer their own curse

Let these candles be their candles

This burning be their burning

This curse be their curse

Let the pain they have caused me and mine

Fall upon themselves

Do this spell for five consecutive nights (as close to midnight as possible) and each night chant the spell until the candles are spent.


This type of candle magic is very basic, yet quite effective. This is a good time to iterate how closely Karma and ethics are intertwined. You choose your own color of magic, not once, but each time you practice. Some traditions believe in Karma as "What you do comes back to you".

Keep in mind that for any magic it is best (though not necessary) to do calling magick, such as money, love, health, luck or anything that brings something to you, during the waxing moon (first quarter) to the full moon. Banishing magic, such as bindings, quitting bad habits, curses or anything pushing energy away should be done during the waning moon (last quarter) to the new moon.

These are optimal times, but you cannot always base your magick around the moon. Basic candle magic deals only with two colors, white and black Correspondence tables at good Wiccan sites. Envision the white candle as the waxing to full moon and the black candle as the waning to new moon. For any calling purposes, use the white candle. For any banishing purposes, use the black candle. (Note: Always use candles that are one solid color throughout. Scratch some wax off to test this if you are not certain.)

You Will Need:

One white or black candle Candle holder Matches or lighter Olive oil

Basic Candle Magic Spell

Perform STEP ONE, Meditation.

For white candle: Rub oil from the tip of the candle towards the base, while humming and visualizing your reason for doing this spell. Continue humming and visualizing for about five minutes.

For black candle: Rub oil from the base of the candle towards the tip, while humming and visualizing your reason for doing this spell. Continue humming and visualizing for about five minutes. Continue for either candle. Place the candle into the holder and light it.

Chant your chant for as long as you can while visualizing your purpose. To chant, use a monotone humming voice.(You should create a specific chant for your purpose.) It can be as simple as one word or as complex as you wish.) (Examples: "Money, money, come to me", "bring love", or "Protection surround me, complete serenity".) When you cannot chant and visualize any longer, put the candle out and repeat the spell the following night (or day). After you see the first glimpse of the results of your spell, let the candle burn all the way out. Remember, after the completion of any spell or ritual, say: "So mote it be."


Depending on your goal, you will need to choose the candle color that is appropriate for your task. Different colors represent different things, for example, if you want to use this spell to gain money, you choose a green candle, because green represents money (as well as other things). If you wanted love, you would use a pink candle (or red if it's actually lust you want). Take the candle and engrave it from top to bottom with what it is your need, using the back side of the blade of a dull knife. (Yes, you can use your athame, but a common butter knife works if you don't have one). Engrave the first and last initials of the person you want to cast the spell on (your own initials if it's for yourself) on the bottom of the candle in the same manner.

After you have engraved your candle, rub incense ashes all over the candle. This means bottom, base, middle, tip, and wick. If you wish, the ashes of the incense may also correspond with your goal. Place the candle in a sturdy candle holder (preferably metal, glass may shatter) and light it. Leave the candle to burn in a safe place. In order for this to work, the candle must be left to burn all the way down.

(Optional) If you think it would help, sit in front of the candle for a few minutes and concentrate on your goal. Meditate on it. Before you leave your candle to finish burning, repeat a few times what it is your wish for the spell to a complish. After the candle had burned out, clean the excess wax away from the candle holder, and throw it away. It should take about 24 hours to start working, depending on the goal.
