First of all, you should know that the color of the candle is not necessary for the ritual. Not only that - the wrong color can actively prevent you from expressing a pure and clear intention. This should be taken into account as the red associated with body dynamics will not be appropriate for supporting science or spiritual matters. Violet, on the other hand, will not be popular when it comes to arousing sexuality or contact with people.
However, this is not a strict dependency. In special cases, a color that seems to be inappropriate to the case can do more than the commonly recommended one. However, for safety reasons, it is assumed that the most neutral are white and light gray candles, as these are the best to restore balance and remove excess forces. Black color neutralizes any excess energy, it allows you to calm even high levels of chaos. Those who know the richness of colors will be able to choose the right color for their intention, but should not stick to it too hard.
What makes color relevant to many people is the gentle quality of focusing on the nature of the intention. Each color has its own properties as well as the possibilities and ways of introducing our strength to the real effect. Warm colors (more dynamic) are directed directly at the action in matter. Cool colors work more in the spiritual realm, they are more subtle and their effect is more manifested through inner sensations. Candles in pastel (light) colors have a milder effect, while the darker ones focus on extinguishing and soothing it.
Candle Color will tell you the most
The candle does not have to be all the same color. It is enough for the tip of the candle to be in the color chosen by us, because it is the moment of working with the intention that is the most important. The most sensitive moment is when lighting a candle. Even pure thought can get dirty with careless desire. As much concentration as possible is required, and the color serves as a base and thus build attitude.
The color that we choose for the ritual does not have to be on the candle. A colored napkin, a candle holder of the selected color, or even a mineral close enough to a candle to combine its properties with a flame, work just as well. Some people burn colored paper with the intention or supportive prayers to strengthen their intention.
In fact, color is needed mainly as an accessory that supports the ritual of candle magic but is not the main foundation. Its presence can therefore be arbitrary and placed near the candle in a very creative way, e.g. by placing it in a lantern of the color of your choice.
It works best in matters of health, as well as those that arouse passion and sexual power. It supports every activity in matter and investments in physical movement. Therefore, it works best to support motivation to exercise, as well as dance or yoga. Wherever we need a kick to manifest our strength, we will need a red candle.

Bright red candle
Intensifies psycho-emotional activity, providing strong stimuli to the higher aspects of physicality. It enlivens the mind, encourages to act and undertake work that we normally do not have the strength to do. If you go overboard with this candle, you will quickly recognize it by the anxiety of both your thoughts and your body. Exaggeration creates a background for the negative aspects that a bright red candle normally mutes - do not burn it for more than 30 minutes.
The dark red candle
focuses its action mainly on enhancing the sensuality and dynamics of the body. It stimulates the energy center responsible for sex and procreation, which strengthens the will to live.

Concentration, richer pronunciation and a light pen are the main opportunities that the yellow candle uses. It also strengthens memory and the expression of behavior - in large amounts, self-confidence and fluent conversation can turn against lying, insincerity and sensual hyperactivity. The yellow candle works intensely where human being is combined with environmental action. Therefore, it is effective in calming down related fears (uncertainty towards people, fear of contact, etc.), as well as those concerning the more general ones, e.g. travel safety, cheerful mood and openness.

It works best in a wide range of intentions based on spiritual development, developing virtues and learning the truths about oneself, i.e. mystical and spiritual matters on earth. The purple candle has a positive effect on the perception, attitude to the world and soothes negative emotions and guilt. It develops the psyche and protects the mind from destructive thoughts, and its action both protects and cleans every sphere of human activities (from typically physical aspects to spiritual raptures). For this reason, it is burned mainly for meditation purposes, when we need a calm mind or when we feel threatened by external influences and the growing doubts within us. According to some sources, it enables you to reach higher states of consciousness and strengthens any intention, as long as it is unselfish.

It is commonly believed that a white candle favors every intention as it contains all possible colors. However, this is not the case - a white candle is usually milky or gray and as such is treated as neutral, capable of accepting any intention and wish. Due to its versatility, it can be used to energetically support our health, plans and activities - from the influx of new ideas to the purification of the aura . A white candle is burned especially when we want to start over, start the stage with the right pace and optimism towards their development. Used for purifying purposes, it is also involved in exorcisms and creating balance.
Recommended in exorcisms, when destroying old connections, rituals based on the New Moon and those aimed at removing limiting beliefs, blockages and influences that burden us. They allow you to hide from the evil eye and keep away any negative influences. The black candle allows you to neutralize or nullify even heavy energies, but also the positive ones dominate equally strongly - hence their bad reputation and occurrence in dark rituals (mainly Satanic). We can smoke it when we feel emotional poisoning because it is great at dealing with both mental and physical tensions. We smoke it mainly for protection, purification and private privacy.
Being able to focus too much on one color can be fatal. The same principle applies to rainbow candles.Contrary to all encouragement from sellers, they are not fit for keeping intention. According to their instructions, it is good to burn rainbow candles with the seven chakras in mind . Unfortunately, multi-colored wax usually introduces only disorganization due to the multitude of different emanations. Therefore, the rainbow range of colors is best used mainly to stimulate the atmosphere, interest and enliven fun. Excessive exaggeration most often results in laziness, procrastination and reluctance, so I do not recommend smoking them for more than 20 minutes.
Candle magic - Rituals
We already know that the intention chosen by us can be supported by certain colors, thanks to which the magic of candles is more effective. What remains to be understood is the ritual itself and the sequence of steps performed. In the next article, I will cover such important topics as preparing materials and the mind to make the ritual work as expected.
We already know the value of the flame and the properties of the materials that the candle can be made of. Some, however, want to go even further and assume that the shape of the candle is of great importance to the intention. This is a common mistake, since the magician's will and the purity of his intentions are in no way dependent on the shape he is using. This strange statement assumes that a person changes his thoughts under the influence of the appearance and form of the matter surrounding him. It is a bit as if a slightly deeper plate would make the dish more delicious.
If we think about it, we will have to accept some absurdities, e.g. inflammation of a huge wax dildo to stimulate libido. The question is - who will increase the drive at the sight of such a shaped candle? It doesn't matter how big the candle will be and how fanciful it will be, because all the energies happen at the level of conscious intention, not loose associations with the alluring shapes of the candles made.
A sphere, a drill or even a form of a totemic animal are only loose associations for a human and although they constitute support, they also weaken the will leading the intention to fulfill. It is important to realize that external forms are only an introduction to magic, but all magic happens within the conscious person.
