Hey All,

I have searched the site and cannot find a thread on candles. Does anyone have an idea of where I could find the thread? Thanks!

Candles? It should be here. Oh well, I'm not sure, sorry. Why not make one? ;)
To see the world in a grain of sand, and heaven in a wild flower. To hold infinity in the palm of your hand, An eternity in an hour.

(I posted this else where but this seemed more pertinent to the topic)

I would like to share an insight I had where the colors in the circle are concerned. There are a basic 6 colors in the color wheel and when you add white and black you have a base color for each holiday.
Starting in the Midwinter and the direction of North,
North is Black: the Winter Solstice/Yule, time of the longest and darkest night, rest and deep reflections.
N-E is White: Imbolc, time of the bride and purity, initiations.
East is Red: Vernal Equinox/Ostara, time of life renewal, the dawn of the day.
S-E is Orange: Bealtaine, time of creativity, ringing in the summer.
South is Yellow: Summer Solstice/Litha, time of longest and brightest light, greatest energy shining through solar plexus.
S-W is Green: Lughnasadh, time of the green man, fulfilment, leisure and greenwood marriages.
West is Blue: Autumnal Equinox/ Mabon, time of turning within, searching the inner waters of the self.
N-W is Purple: Samhain, time of death, highest insight, spiritual epiphanies.

On brown candles: They can also pertain to (an) animal/s. It seems like that property is mentioned about half the time when brown candles are included in a list of colors, but that's the one that inspires me to have a few in my stash! >^..^<
