Apologies for the thread title, I couldnt think of anything else, it's like 2am and I need some coffee...

Anyway, ah will my questions ever cease, you guys should have never let me join up lol.

I did some research into candle magic today, just a little reading up. I read that the simplest form of candle magic spell was to write down your aim, wish, whatever onto a piece of 'virgin' (unused) paper, and slowly burn it, then leave the candle to burn itself out. Using the correct colour candle for the correct type of spell of course.

My question(s) are: A) does this 'simple' spell work, or is it, because of its simplicity, not effective? and B) How do candle spells become more complicated? When you start including different colours of candles in the same spell, or what?

Thanks to all in advance for answers, or indeed questions, you havent let me down so far!

Good thread started here - thank you, Narada.

Simple is often best and simplicity does not mean ineffective in any way.

However, candle spells can become more complicated when you start mixing colours to represent different aspects of the spell that is being worked and/or introducing herbs, oils, carvings/inscriptions, crystals ... the list can go on and on.

May the Goddess light your path always,
The God protect
and your heart be filled with Love!

Brightest Blessings!

Candle magic is in a league of it's own...I would recommend purchasing a few books on the subject if you really are interested, it is simple magic (mostly) and often effective.

Candle magick is indeed often simple and effective, but as has been said, there are many different methods, from just charging a candle with intention to incorporating other methods like words, runes, sigils, oils etc etc into a more complex spell. In fact candle magick can be used as a small part of a spell. Particularly useful for spells that work over a long period of time. In this case a spell can be done focussed around a candle, and a little of the candle can be burnt each day. But yeah, that's more complex.

A few things to remember though. Wax picks up energies really easily and they tend to stick, so ALWAYS CLEANSE BEFORE YOU CAST! lol. Also, some traditions maintain that spelled candles should not be blown out but either left to burn out or pinched or snuffed out. I think the root of this is that the act of blowing out the candle brushes away the energy from the spell.
