The use of candle magic dates all the way back to the Palaeolithic era, making candle magic one of the oldest forms of magic known to man. In this chapter I want to provide you with a look at several ways candles are being used for magic.

In the Wiccan religion candles are used to represent the god and goddess, or the general Wiccan male and female superior deities. The candles can also be carved to represent the male and female superior dieties. Of course, they can remain un-carved and have the same meaning.

Candles are also used to mark the four corners of a circle, which is very significant and necessary when performing more complex spells. They are also used in circles to represent the sacred triangle, which is used to call upon the god and goddess.

Candles can be used to represent a number of things, including people, places, objects, or the desire that you are attempting to manifest.

Candles can also be used as a tool to repel evil.

It's no secret that superstitions are a part of life. It should come as no surprise to you that there are superstitions regarding the use of candles.  The list below represents a handful of the more common superstitions you may hear in regards to candles.


I cannot prove or disprove any of these superstitions as I have never really paid any significant amount of time trying to disprove them.
