Candle Color Meaning

 

COLOR INFORMATION ELEMENT PLANET DAY ENERGY MEANING
RED
 
Red is a fiery color that attracts and magnetizes, but must be used with discernment to avoid disastrous results. The shade of red used or considered in your magickal act will be of extreme importance here. Stay with the lighter, brighter shades of red and leave the darker shades for the more experienced practitioners for now. The darker shades are for wars, battles, hate and danger.


FIRE

Mars Tuesday Male

Energy, Strength, Passion, Courage, Career Goals, Fast Action, Lust, Blood of the Moon, Vibrancy, Driving Force, Love, Survival, Love, Passion, Emotion, Courage, Sex, Lust, Strength, Power, Anger, Fire, Energy

 

 

 

ORANGE
XX
Orange is a combination of Yellow/Mercury (mental agility) and Mars/Red (action energy). Thus you have the best of both worlds, the energies of the actions of red, yet the intelligence to know how to use this action. The over aggressive nature of the color red is now toned and tapered with the healing wisdom rays of yellow that nurtures the entire system. Sunday is the best day for the use of the color Orange. It can be used on Tuesday or Wednesday with success, depending on your magickal goals. If used on a Tuesday, the emphasis is on physical action. If used on Wednesday, it's on mental actions, whereas Sunday is a balance of both.   Sun, Mars, Mercury Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday Male

GOLD
XX
The male half of the Cosmic or Universal Life force, God-sun energy. Intelligent action or action motivated by deliberation and knowledge, usually with healing, money, or wealth in mind. Gold is related to orange and yellow, in that it is a higher vibration of these two colors and any three can actually be used on a Sunday (sun) with success. The choice here is for you to experiment and decide which color best suits your particular needs. Generally speaking, orange vibrates to the physical and mental world, while yellow vibrates to mental action only (better attributed to Wednesday/Mercury). Lastly, gold would be indicative of intelligent, quick action with a money emphasis.

GREEN
XX
Green really does bring the luck in cases of money. But be very clear in your intent regarding money sought with this color. If done with haste and no specific intent it seems to fade quickly or trickle in a little at a time, just enough to wet you appetite. Green stimulates growth, plant life or garden fairies. Green is an earth color and is used on Friday. Depending upon the magickal system you employ, it may be used on a Wednesday as it is a healing day as well.

It is predominantly feminine in energy, and is ruled either by the Moon, Venus or Saturn, depending on the hue. Many consider the Royal Blues as belonging to the male energies of Jupiter.

PURPLE
XX
Purple is the color of expansion in all forms. If you want to do something in a big way, this is the color to use. Purple expands anything you desire…. i.e.: spirituality, business, money, health or love. The royal blues are less expansive, dealing more with the emotional and spiritual levels of Jupiter. Therefore, the royal or dark blues are often attributed to Saturn. A word of caution, however, if you do not already have items of your desire, do not use Jupiter. Jupiter only expands and brings more of what you already have. To obtain the items of your desire, use Sun/Sunday/Orange in order to manifest what you currently do not have in your life.   Jupiter Thursday Male

GRAY
XX
This color is unique, due to its aspect of neutrality. Gray can be used to neutralize anything from a magickal act that no longer serves your best interest, to the neutralization of destructive energies in a passive non-karmic fashion. It is a perfect balance of black and white, and therefore absorbs and repels. With this quality, gray draws in the undesirable energies and then sends them out to the universe for dispersal as neither a destructive nor constructive properties.   Moon Monday Both Male & Female

BLACK
XX
An intense concentration of all colors, it absorbs light. Unlike other colors, black reflects very little, if any, light back to the viewer. This can give the false impression that black is the absence of color. It is actually the absence of color reflection. Think of this color as a black hole in space. It absorbs all light or no reflection back, thus it becomes a receptacle or a transporter for all that you do not need or want. Properly used, it can be one of the most useful and powerful colors available. However, misused, it can cause disaster.

WHITE
XX
A pastel combination of all colors, white reflects light with little to no absorption. Whenever in doubt in a magickal act, use white, which is the most highly balanced form of spirituality possible. White contains virtues in their highest form, and is therefore very protective. It is beyond the word or term for God(dess). It is the creative source itself, zero, the alpha, the light from which all life springs, the female aspect of God, the Craft of the Wise, the full of the moon, the symbol of the life giving mother, and all female mysteries.

Candle Chant
When you are ready to light the candle, chant something like:


Candle of power, candle of might,
Create my desires here on this night.
Power, stream from this candle's fire.
Bring to me my heart's desire.
My words have strength, the victory's won.
So say I, this spell is done.
