You can choose clothing, altar cloths, and candles in colors associated with the intent of your spell or ritual.
You can write spells, incantations, talismans, and sigils using ink or colored pencils in colors corresponding to the magick you are working.
When meditating, you can envision yourself surrounded by light in a color associated with your purpose.
Colors play an important role in our lives and even when we do creative work or meditate, we can lend distinctive vibrations and focus our intentions better through the burning of different colored candles. Indeed; candle “magick” is an important and much studied science and art (which many feel, wrongly, is associated with black magic or witchcraft).
In this guide, we will only refer to the use of candle colors and their meanings for linking to individual energies as based on different colored Chakras. We hope that the candle colors and their meanings given below will work positively on specific forces of the Universe in order to strengthen your affirmations. This, in turn, can help you direct the Universal energy towards particular (positive) conclusions.

Truly understanding the full moon and other moon phases can seem a bit complex, especially if you’re newly seeking to invoke moon magic. It is important to first comprehend the astronomy and movement behind these celestial bodies before you can truly grasp their mystical significance. A base knowledge will make your next full moon ritual feel much more complete and meaningful.
Once you’ve read this article, you can learn how to set up your own full moon ritual.
Interpreting the Moon Phases Diagram
The moon phases involve three astral masses in our solar system: planet Earth, the sun, and the moon.
Let’s begin with us, here on Earth. While we spin on our axis, making a complete 360-degree rotation every 24 hours (thus distinguishing night and day), we also orbit the sun in a yearly transit. Next, there’s the moon. The moon orbits Earth on its own path, making a full cycle every 29.5 days (as seen from Earth). And of course, the sun is the stationary center of our solar system, emitting its golden energy 24/7. The radiant fire of this massive star is what gives us daylight and moonlight.

Since time began, we have been using the Moon to live our lives by
– to tune into the Earth’s natural rhythms
– to use the magic of the moon phases for living, growing crops, magic rituals, health and so much more.
Magic of the Moon Basics
The Moon completes a full orbit around the Earth every 29.5 days.
During the New Moon phase the position of the moon means no light is reflected off the Sun, so it is not visible at all.
The Full Moon appears 14 to 15 days after the New Moon and appears as a glorious glowing white circle in the night sky.
This phase reflects the maximum amount of light from the Sun.
The Phases of the Moon
The phases of the Moon are:
- New Moon
- Waxing Moon (when the Moon gets bigger in the sky, a narrow crescent growing from right to left)
- Waning Moon (when the Full Moon is decreasing in size, moving back towards the New Moon, gradually changing to a decreasing crescent from right to left)
- Gibbous Moon is the period between the first quarter and Full Moon and between the Full Moon and last quarter.

Seeds are being blown about on the breezes, spreading life all around from one place to the next. In fact, this lunar cycle is often known as the Seed Moon. Trees have buds on them, spring daffodils and tulips abound, and the birds are nesting once more. Much like March, this is a time of conception and fertility and new growth.

Even though it’s the end of February, the unseasonably warm weather in many places has gotten a lot of us thinking about spring a little bit early – and with spring comes gardening! Are you thinking about planting some magical herbs in your garden this year? Even if you don’t have a big yard, you can grow herbs in containers to use in spellwork and rituals later on. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular magical herbs to grow, so you can start planning your plantings!
Herbs have been used for thousands of years, both medicinally and ritually. Every herb has its own unique characteristics, and these properties are what makes the plant special. Subsequently, many Pagans use herbs as part of their regular ritual practice.
Also, be sure to read about herbal correspondences to get a feel for which herbs are useful in what types of workings: Magical Herb Use.
This first part is 29 different “pages” long. To read the other 28 information articles and see the pictures of each herb please click on this link: http://paganwiccan.about.com/od/herbalism/ss/Magical-Herbs.htm?utm_campaign=list_paganwiccan&utm_content=20170228&utm_medium=email&utm_source=exp_nl&utm_term=list_paganwiccan
You’ve probably heard the term, “familiar” during conversations among those who provide psychic and/or natural healing services. What does it mean? Though a familiar may take on a variety of different forms, most often a familiar’s form is feline. A psychic, healer, clairvoyant, medicine woman, shaman, etc., will frequently have what is basically a working assistant in the form of a cat. That cat is not a pet, but rather provides useful, practical, magical supportive assistance to its human.
More often than not, the familiar is the one who chooses the human, rather than the other way around. There will be something that’s just “different” about the animal – a look in its eyes, a difference in its demeanor making it stand apart from the rest of its liter, or a consistently-demonstrated heightened sensitivity and special skill set.
Yes, I have a familiar in my work, and yes, he chose me rather than the other way around. As I’d never been around a cat before, it was and continues to be a fascinating adjustment that adds depth & enjoyment to my work & life. One of those adjustments was how to effectively discipline this curious, dedicated kitty cat…
