Alright, so lets talk about colors,
each color has its special meaning. I am sure you know at least one or two of them...come on, who doesn't know that red is for love? And pink for romance?
Now i am also sure that for example purple might ring you a bell for friendship, a memory connected to that color says so right?. Then by all means i don't see why you cant use a purple candle to cast a friendship spell. You see colors help us guide our magic to a specific purpose.
This is the list i have in my book of shadows i hope it helps.

white for purity, sincerity, truth and protection also in some cultures its the color of death and mourning
yellow for memory, vision and creativity
red for health, courage, sexual potency, and passionate love
black for banishing, loss, ending and beginning and protection
purple for magical powers,the spiritual, secrets and the mind
green for fertility, growth, good luck and prosperity
blue for healing, peace, wisdom, inspiration and dreams
orange for attraction and energy
brown for what has to do with animals and familiars
and pink for love and romance[/b]
gold is for the God
silver for the Goddess

Now that you know this when the time comes to do some magic you will know which color is suited for your purposes, and if you cannot decide white is always a good choice (at least for me)
Give a little time and write down this list , in the future you will make changes or keep it like it is, both are fine. [/b]

Using colour in rituals/spells

Postby Twisted_Pixie » Fri Jan 22, 2010 4:54 pm

I know there is another thread about colour, i'm sure these two posts will correspond, but i thought i would post up my notes here too, there may be a few differences or even additions that may help =)

So when people say they use colour in ritual. They could mean the colour of their altar cloth, the colour of candles, your clothes while you perform the ritual, even colours of crystals sometimes too.

My old altar had a mirror infront of it, and sometimes i would use a certain colour to paint appropriate runes on the mirror. Colour holds alot of symbolism!!

So here are the colours i was trained in:

Peace, Earth, silence, grounding. Black is all colours in the underworld, protection.

White: Pure spirit, stone. All colours in the upperworld.

Birth, mind, blood, passion, desire. Ond travels on the breath. Power. (ond is 'life force', 'chi', 'prana' etc... its just another word for it)

Yellow: Fire, action, energy

Blue: Water, emotion, wisdom, self generated love

intellect, union of the God and Goddess, violet is blue and red in harmony.

Sexuality, growth, harmony, fertility, strong heart emotion.

Pink: Flesh, sexuality, sexual love. Gentle heart emotion.

Magenta: Love

grounding, earth

Orange: fire in the head, vision, power, high psychic states.

As i said, people may have a different opinion about what colours mean... you just use what feels right to you because you are mostly where the power comes from.

Oh, something else.
Green or Gold are both equally suitable as God Candles.
White or Silver are both equally suitable as Goddess Candles.
White can be used as a substitute for any color, except black.
