If you’re just getting started with magick, you should let it burn. Candles are an essential component of any magickal toolkit. They are used to amplify and discharge energy. They can be kept unlit around your pad to generate happy feelings or lit in rituals and spells. (Please don’t fire down your apartment.)
Working With Elements
The element of fire, which represents transformation, is at the heart of candle magick. Fire transforms everything it comes into contact with, whether it’s turning a love note into ashes or bringing water to a boil for mac & cheese. In candle magick, you’re channeling this transformational energy, which encourages and accelerates changes in your life.

How to Use Candle Magick to Achieve Your Goals and Manifest Your Desires?
You’ll need a range of various colored candles (unscented) in your toolkit:
- White: fosters serenity and peace while also increasing personal strength and understanding.
- Black: bb for psychological protection.
- Green: aids in the life of your thoughts and increases prosperity. Please accept my thanks.
- Blue: interacts with your chakras as well as any emotional traumas that need to be healed.
- Yellow improves your networking and social skills, resulting in new job prospects. (Try keeping one unlit on your desk.)
- Red promotes love, sex, and passion. Obvs.
- Pink: This one is for love. A pink candle placed near your front door will welcome love into your home.
- Purple enhances spiritual awareness and creativity.
- Orange: stimulates ambition and aids in broadening your horizons. Get yours now!
- Brown: assists with all aspects of your resources (like health, energy, possessions, pets, endurance, and courage).
So, are you ready to (ahem) light up? Here’s what you should do:
Step 1: What are you hoping to achieve?
Consider what you wish to add to your life. Be specific, realistic, upbeat, and considerate. (Don’t wish terrible things on people, no matter how obnoxious they are. Allow karma to take care of it.) Clarify your intention in a single sentence, such as “I need to find a job that pays more and excites me.”
Step 2: Conjure up your spell.
The simplest basic candle magick spell is to simply visualize your goal, speak a sentence, then light the candle to release the energy. Job well done.
Choose the color of the candle with care. Choose one that relates to the nature of your goal, such as yellow for a job hunt. You may also wish to amplify your candle with suitable crystals, herbs, or flowers to increase the positive vibes.
To advance, look into astrology placements to ensure that your ritual is aligned with the correct energy from the universe. If it’s about love, you should probably wait till Venus is in Libra. If you want to bring new opportunities into your life, a New Moon is a good time to do so.
Naturally, avoid Mercury Retrograde unless you want to play Russian roulette with the outcome of your spell.
You might even write a chant, poem, or song about your goal. I know that sounds foolish, but trust me when I say that it helps improve your dedication to and resonance with your goal.
Step 3: Raise the level of your spell.
To establish more focused intents, mix & match the candles. For example, if you want excellent sex AND real love in your next spouse (yes, please), combine a red (sex) and a pink (love) candle in your ritual.
You might use a yellow (expression) and white (healing) candle to balance the mood before having and healing from a challenging task. (If Oprah had contacted me for advice before her interview with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, I would have advised her to go with this!)
Alternatively, consider a green (creativity) and orange (ambition and success) candle combination if you want to gain money from your creative abilities. Bring in black (protection) and blue (healing) candles to double your psychic care package if you want to project protection and healing onto a loved one who is going through anything.
If you wish to get messages about your true calling in life, use a purple (spiritual enlightenment) and an orange (personal prosperity) candle to find you in finding your specialty. You get the picture!
Combine and contrast.
Step 4: Decorate the candle.
This is critical. You want to create a psychic link between the candle, yourself, and your goal. This is known as “dressing the candle.”
First, rub the candle with oil (any oil would do, such as almond, coconut, or jojoba). If you like essential oils, you can add those in as well). Rub the candle from top to bottom to attract things to you or bottom to top to repel them. Focus on your goal and mentally *pour* that image into the candle while you rub the candle with oil (cover the entire surface but skip the wick).
Chanting is quite beneficial—seriously.
You may notice that your hands begin to tingle or get quite warm. This is a good sign that the vibrations are flowing and the magick is doing its job.
Continue dressing the candle for a few minutes or until it feels charged. You can also scratch names, numbers, or symbols in the wax if they are important to your spell.
Step 5: Light it up.
Okay, you’re ready to begin working with magick. Take a few deep breaths, relax, and visualize your anxieties or thoughts drifting away from you. Clear your thoughts.
Then begin to visualize your goal as though it has already occurred. Consider how you’d feel and what your life would be like. Repeat your chant/song/poem or state your intention aloud when you have a clear mental image. Light the candle when you feel almost full of your goal’s energy and positive vibes.
Concentrate on the candle’s aura (the light just outside the flame) and visualize it growing larger and larger until it fills the room. Then envision it growing beyond the room and into the universe, beaming out and sending a signal to bring your intention to you.
Keep this image in your memory for as long as you can. When you notice your energy dwindling or become distracted, blow out the candle, and you’re done.
Have fun casting spells!
