Basic Candle Magick


 A Chapter from the Introductory Lesson of

     The Complete Homestudy Course in Witchcraft


 Here is a taste of magick you may use as soon as you complete the

 Self-Dedication period. This type of candle magick is very basic, yet quite

 effective. Lesson Four will deal solely with magick, but this being an

 introductory lesson, it is only fair to include a taste.

 This is a good time iterate how closely Karma and ethics are intertwined. If

 you cast an evil spell, you may be in for some Karma even though you might

 call yourself a white witch. You choose your own color of magick, not once,

 but each time you practice. Some traditions believe in Karma as "What you do

 comes back to you". Do you? This is your own moral choice. The magick you

 will learn from this course and the magick you will learn to create on your

 own can be used for any purpose.

 Keep in mind that for any magick it is best (though not necessary) to do

 calling magick, such as money, love, health, luck or anything that brings

 something to you, during the waxing moon (first quarter) to the full moon.

 Banishing magick, such as bindings, quitting bad habits, curses or anything

 pushing energy away should be done during the waning moon (last quarter) to

 the new moon. These are optimal times, but you cannot always base your


 around the moon.

 Basic candle magick deals only with two colors, white and black (Lesson Four

 will have a complete list of color or meanings). Envision the white candle


 the waxing to full moon and the black candle as the waning to new moon. For

 any calling purposes, use the white candle. For any banishing purposes, use

 the black candle. (Note: Always use candles that are one solid color

 throughout. Scratch some wax off to test this if you are not certain.)


 You Will Need:


 One white or black candle

 Candle holder

 Matches or lighter

 Olive oil

 (a small amount)


 Basic Candle Magick Spell


 Perform STEP ONE, Meditation.

 For white candle:

 Rub oil from the tip of the candle towards the base,

 while humming and visualizing your reason for doing this spell.

 Continue humming and visualizing for about five minutes.

 For black candle:

 Rub oil from the base of the candle towards the tip,

 while humming and visualizing your reason for doing this spell.

 Continue humming and visualizing for about five minutes.

 Continue for either candle:

 Place the candle into the holder and light it.

 Chant your chant for as long as you can while visualizing your purpose.

 To chant, use a monotone humming voice.

 (You should create a specific chant for your purpose.)

 (It can be as simple as one word or as complex as you wish.)

 (Examples: "Money, money, come to me", "bring love",

 or "Protection surround me, complete serenity".)

 When you cannot chant and visualize any longer,

 put the candle out and repeat the spell the following night (or day).

 After you see the first glimpse of the results of your spell,

 let the candle burn all the way out.

 Remember, after the completion of any spell or ritual, always say:

 "So mote it be."
