Candle magic is a simple but effective magical technique, involving a minimum of equipment and experience. In this complete manual are instructions for making, dressing, and anointing candles and for using them in a variety of rituals—attraction, banishment, peace and contemplation, and the Mystical Novena.
The Book of Practical Candle Magic, written by an experienced occultist, offers expert guidance on a fascinating aspect of magical theory and includes a historical survey of the candle in religion and folklore as well as essential information on color symbolism, angelic signatures, planetary signs, and zodiacal correspondences.
I found this to be a very interesting book. I liked how the author has a section for candle making. I have always wanted to learn how to make my own candles and this book gives pointers and different options. I never realized how candle making can vary when it comes to making them. You can use molds or just dipping, add scents and even colors. Which brings me to a section based off of what the color of the candles should be. There is a go to color that can always be used but each color has a different meaning. It is all based off of what you are looking for. In the candle rituals portion of the book I liked that there is a page that tells us which Psalms to read depending on what we are looking for. In the back of the book there is a reference table that deals with the Zodiacs and their colors and which days is best to work the candle magic.
Very interesting and informative book for a first timer in the arts of Candle Magic. Thank you to the goodreads giveaway program.
