I am currently in the process of migrating the content shared here to a series of new websites hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com.

As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

Candle Magick

One of the most used tools of spellcraft and magick, candles are essentially vessels that carry and deliver prayers. Candles are also used on the altar to honor gods and goddesses and the four quarters or elements (earth, air, fire, and water).

Candle colors and shapes have different meanings:
  • Red: love or energy
  • Pink: flirtation, harmony, or emotional healing
  • Orange: success and motivation
  • Brown: power and stability
  • Black: protection or cursing
  • White: to clear the path, protection, and healing
  • Blue: peace and protection
  • Green: prosperity, fertility, growth
  • Purple: power and wisdom
  • Yellow, success, fame, and glory, also clarity
  • Male and female figures: love, protection, separation, healing
  • Cat : love and luck
  • Cross: protection, meditation, devotion
  • Seven-knot: burned while making wishes as each knot burns
  • Seven-color: devotionals for the seven orishas, or Yoruban gods and goddseses
  • Skull: used for hexing or healing depending on the color
  • Witch: love spells
  • Reversible or double-action: these black and red candles are burned to return evil to the sender.
