Candles and Their Meanings
Candle magick is a form of magic that has been used for centuries, and it's one of the most common forms of sympathetic magick in existence. The basic principle is that by focusing your energy on your desires, you can manifest those desires. Using different colored candles can increase the focus and the energy of a particular magickal working, based on the energy that already exists within certain colors. Each color is attuned to a different kind of energy, so by using the correct color, you can increase the power in each working. Yellow Candles
