Candle Magick Colours And Their Meanings

Welcome to Part 1 of our Candle Magick Series!


As you probably know, there are many ways you can perform a spell, but one of the easiest ways is candle magick.


Candle magick is great for beginners or if you have limited supplies. With just a flame and a thought, powerful results can be achieved.


There are several ways to perform candle magick to make it personal to your magickal needs. Here are just a few examples:

  • Coloured candles

  • Scented candles

  • Shaped candles

  • Dressed candles

  • Inscribed candles

  • Candle sizes

In future posts we will be going into more detail about each of these techniques, today we will be focusing on coloured candles and what their colours represent.

What Is Candle Colour Magick?


Candle magick and colour magick are two separate and easy forms of magick, and by combining the two you can achieve an extra boost to your spells.


All colours represent and carry their own meanings and message.


For example, when we think of the colour green, our minds link it with health, the earth, growth, and money. The colour yellow, we think of sunshine, positivity, and happiness.


This is how candle colour magick works, the colours help us with our focus and intent during spell work, to help us really visualise and feel the energy that we are trying to manifest. It’s scientifically proven that colours can impact your thoughts, feelings, and mood.
