Candles have long been used in association with magick and witchcraft, as indeed they have been adopted and used by many other religions for spiritual communication.
Candle magick is probably the oldest and simplest form of ritual magick still performed today. Ever since fire was discovered, the naked flame has been regarded as sacred. In ancient times they used to light touches to invoke the Goddess and Gods.
Today we symbolize those acts by utilizing candles. The naked flame remains the finest and easiest means of focusing in on power and energy.
The use of differently coloured candles symbolizes the nature of intent and ultimately the outcome of a particular spell. Coloured candles are therefore used to pinpoint our focus on a particular deity or planetary association. We need to understand the colour properties and other associations of candles to make magick work.
