Slaying the Green Eyed MonsterWritten by Sam Stevens
One of questions that I am asked most often on realm, is colour of candle should I burn for what purpose? And when ...
As there is no book out there called Candle Burning for Dummies, I thought I would give you a quick crash course in correspondences of colour candles to magickal purposes. As a practicing witchlet, first thing you must do is learn how to
a) pray your heart out and b) laugh maniacally.
As far as Iım concerned, no spell is complete without fervent wishing and praying followed by a maniacal laugh (to seal spell.)
The second thing you must do is familiarize yourself with phases of moon. It is best to do most magic from New Moon to Full Moon period when moon is waxing. During this period, cosmic or astral energy is building and this is best for if you want to attract something to you ... like a lover, more money, more gerbils or whatever. From period of Full Moon to next New Moon is best for banishing spells -- getting rid of negativity, stalkers and like. www.artcharts.com has a nice ephemeris on it that tells you where moon is each day. This site also tells you when moon is what is called ³void of course²... you donıt want to start burning a candle while this is going lest your cosmic energy go astray ... of course if you have a question about whether a night is a good night to burn a candle, you can always email one of psychics (Mary Helene, Ruella, David, Lydia and myself are good choices) to help you with astrological aspects.
RED candles burnt during waxing mood period are used to attract more love, lust and drama into your life. They are especially good to burn during three days leading up to full moon to heighten erotic tension. They can also be used during waning moon period to drive a rival away (especially if used in conjunction with black candle.) However this is manipulative magick and could have some bad karma attached to it.
ORANGE candles bring you love, joy, luck, happiness, feasting and luck with children and pets. Wanna go to more parties? This is candle to burn.
GREEN candles increase cash flow and bring steady work. They represent growth, fertility, abundance and opportunity. Combined with a black candle during waning moon, they can help remove financial obstacles in your way.
YELLOW candles are for both spiritual and material riches and help align your will with heart. This is colour to burn you are confused about your career or professional matters...this is colour you want. It can also help you buy that new fridge or car. PINK candles bring tenderness, equilibrium and help you manifest higher qualities of love in your life -- patience, faith and compassion. Like orange, this can also be a fun candle and bring delight and surprises into your life. For a real lift, trying burning a yellow orange and pink candle together.
Your Guide to the ArchangelsWritten by Sam Stevens
An angel can be your best friend. Angels have been known respond to prayers that contain phrase "Hey, somebody, anybody up there HELP!!!" but they come quickest when addressed politely by their Christian names. Like a friend, as opposed to a servant, an angel also doesn't like to be bossed around. Angels are to be treated like guests who are invited into your heart...like most guests they tend to leave or ignore enviroments that are filled with aggression, anxiety anger and hostility. So before you call on an angel, it is important to meditate, and picture your own heart as a soft, tender and heavenly place ... a place you'd want to visit if you were a astral being. So before you call on an angel to do you a favour, it is important to meditate and maybe light a candle that is attractive to that particularbeing. So first thing you must do, when you call upon an angel, is prepare your heart to recieve its presence. Speak angel's name out loud. Talk to angel like you would a treasured friend .. not like a withholding parent or an evil fairy that won't grant your wish. Don't demand immediate gratification and don't be so rude as to interrupt if you start to hear a message. If you are silent, respectful, fervent and loving, an angel will always give you answer you need to solve your problem. You wouldn't ask a plumber to fix your car, so it is important to know which archangel is best at fixing which kind of problem. Each angel has a job, and exist on astral planes that correspond to different light rays. Make your request specific, and visualize what you would like if you can, but don't be attached to outcome. Angels are agents of Lord and like God, they work in mysterious ways... Here is a list of Seven Archangels, their functions and corresponding light rays: The ARCHANGEL MICHAEL is ANGEL OF PROTECTION and corresponds to colour blue. Practically, you can ask him and his legions for protection from any kind of physical danger, accidents and attacks of all kinds including traffic accidents, stalkers, robbers, as well as protection from astral attacks, witchcraft and evil eye. Spiritually he can help restore your faith in God and free you from fear and self-doubt. He also protects soldiers and leaders of governent. The ARCHANGEL JOPHIEL is ANGEL OF ILLUMINATION and corresponds to colour yellow. This angel can help free you and loved ones from addictions, improve your memory, help you pass tests and retain information and knowledge. Spiritually he can help you connect with your higher self and show you way when it comes to make difficult decisions. This is angel who exposes secrets and lies and helps fight pollution on planet.
