First, Happy New Year to everyone! I hope this is an amazing 2018 for all.

Second, I had a pretty jarring experience last night with, of all things, a simple yellow 4-inch candle dressed with Van Van oil. Recently I have been inspired to return to my hoodoo work, which I had put away a few years ago, and decided to do some simple road opening and blessing work for the new year, as well as a bottle spell for a new job I am hoping for.

My (adult) daughters wanted to join me, so I had organized several items and supplies, including various Lucky Mojo herbs, incenses, sachet powders, oils, etc., on my dining room table, and we were discussing the items' various meanings and uses.

I tend to be fanatical about candle safety, so had even provided large plates for each of us to burn our candles on, in case they fell over, etc. Ironic, as I made the (stupid) mistake of at one point leaning over my candle-- and my shirt caught fire! It turned into a pretty full-on blaze, and my daughters had to rip the shirt off and we soon got it out-- but not before I burned my shoulder (not too seriously, but not too comfortable, either!) and singed my hair. The whole event was pretty traumatic, and left me shaken! (Thank God for my daughters, who were extremely fast-thinking, sweet and comforting throughout!)

Needless to say everyone snuffed out their candles and we abandoned our work for the evening. At this point, I'm not sure if I ever want to light another candle again! I feel like this is some huge sign that I shouldn't be doing this work, which truly makes me sad.

Anyway, not sure if anyone has any insight on what might have happened (other than me being completely careless!)? My daughter thinks I should chalk it up to just that-- a momentary bout of uncharacteristic carelessness-- but I thought I would check with those on this forum, who are so wise about these things!

Thanks so much for any/all thoughts about this--

Best,
Amy

Hello, Gaylette Gale,

In my honest opinion, this was just a violation of fire safety.

Even with decades of experience of candle work, we must be very careful and assume nothing. always treat fire with respect and caution. There have been times when flames have done some really weird things and it has led me to become even more cautious than I had ever been.

About 2 years ago, I did not put a candle and its holder on a fireproof surface (such as sand, etc). I turned away for just 1/2 hour and returned to a burned altar cloth and burning altar. I had to use a fire extinguisher (and I recommended that ALL spell casters who work with candles have one handy). What was my Spiritual lesson? In my opinion, it was a sign that if I am not more careful, I could have a serious mishap. So, it was actually a blessing in disguise.

I hope that you're OK and pray that you heal fast.

Take care

Miss Aida, thank you so much for your feedback and kind words! I agree that this has been a very strong reminder of the need for caution when working with candles.

I appreciate your perspective on this, and hope you have a wonderful new year!

What does it mean if a candle sizzles a lot (propably because of the herbs too), burns high and then burns low. Then suddenly a small knot falls down on the base of the candle creating another flame making it melt and then suddenly recombines with the original wick and flame and burns high???

My court case honey jar candle just burned with sizzling sounds and then into two separate flames, which later went back into one big flame, and then quickly another separate flame inside the big flame. Quite a lot of candle wax melt down in different directions from this 4" candle but at the end, somehow the fire burned it all clean, leaving only a small wax remain with an image looking like a ring (which I have my own interpretation what it might mean). And at the end when the fire extinguished, white smoke came up briefly. Should I take this as a good sign? I read that sizzling sounds can mean that spirits are trying to talk to you or work for your intention and that white smoke is a positive sign.

Hello all,
I have been researching and researching my question before posting and need some insight. I am currently burning a sweetening candle for my daughter's grandmother, (obviously her dad's mom). I began on the night of Jan. 31st. On the 1st of Feb. and 2nd, there was a heavy amount of wax plastered on what is the right side of the candle (being where the pic and petition is placed), with just a little stuck to the back (a huge glob that traveled that way). Everything I read, said this is a sign of the spell being receptive/projective.

On the 4th day (yesterday), I went in to do my usual routine of prayers and intention to all of my candles, and noticed the wax that was stuck to the side has completely melted down. I mean there is literally like 2 or 3 super tiny specs of wax where the thick layer was, but that thick layer is now nothing. The flame is beautiful and I have been putting loads of energy into this particular candle. I did read http://www.luckymojo.com/candlemagicdiv ... tml#signsB, but do not see something like this mentioned.

I have been doing candle magick for years, and have NEVER had this experience before. I am wondering if anyone has had this experience or has any insight into this. It would be most helpful and most appreciated.

Hey everyone. So I recently went through a break up on this past Wednesday. On Thursday night I burned a short white pillar candle to see him on Friday for an important event because I didn't know if he would still come. The candle burned quickly through the night almost all the way down cleanly with a strong consistent flame with an almost even puddle of wax around it by the time I was ready to leave home for the event. He showed up. I did do my part in messaging him to still come in the real world as well.

Today I started a reconciliation candle of the same type. It's been burning about 6 hours with a strong consistent flame, clean and pretty even down the middle but at first it was burning more in the direction of where I engraved his name on the candle. It is also burning slower than the previous candle.

Now here comes the weird part. I've never experienced this before. I was feeling really sad about the break up and I started crying so I sat infront of the candle took out my phone and started to draft a message to him all while crying when I looked up and saw the candle was also tearing what looks like two streams of tears down the side of the candle with his name on it plus the flame was slightly stronger. I was so shocked I stopped crying and when I stopped crying the candle stopped tearing. Now there's a puddle of wax on the side and the candle is still burning clean and even.

I'm still in shock and have no idea what this could mean. Is it good, bad, in between, coincidence? It didn't feel like coincidence.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.


Update: Now the side with his name is melting more than the rest of the candle.

Hello SAgirl,

Unfortunately we can not do a reading on the candle wax as this is a professional service offered by the readers at AIRR (www.readersandrootworkers.org). If you look over this thread it will give you an idea of how to go about interpreting your candle burn. You can also check out this info page (http://www.luckymojo.com/candlemagicdivination.html).

Peace~

Okay quick question I just lit a red man and woman figure candle free standing. Now the wax has melted down unto a puddle, and in that puddle of wax is a heart shape. What would you say this means? My red alter candles are also melted within that puddle! I wish there was a way I could post a picture!!!

I was doing a bring back my ex, candle spell, and the candles were tied together and finally brought together, and the candle representing me , the glass broke, not to where wax spilled, about maybe an inch above the wax line, i dont know if it means anything or maybe its because the candle wick was very off centered? and i would like to know if i can still use his candle, and try again , or do i have to dispose of both ? and where should i dispose of them? Thank you for any suggestions or help.

I was doing a domination spell on 2 people. They are witnesses of my boyfriend court case and the spell was for them to be silenced and confused so they won't be witnesses any longer. Anyhow both their 7 Day candles were black sooted so I am not sure what this means? Can someone tell me the interpretation of this? Will the spell work or no? Do I need to redo it?

Ok,

So i wasn't sure where to post this as I couldn't find a category that seemed to fit so im sorry if this is the wrong place to post it.

I have been practising magik/spell work for many years and this has never happaned before so im unsure of what to make of it.

I decided to combine a few practices mojo bag/honey jat spell to keep a sort of honey jar mojo bag under the bed, we have been trying to convince for some time and have got the go ahead for fertility treatment.

I decided to do some spell work this morning, combined my ingredients (Basil, honey, sugar, corriander, tumeric, hemp oil, some hair, a drop of blood, a crescent moon, a bell pendant, a tigers eye and a jade stone). I put alot more energy into it than usual, I'm not sure why, it was just flowing.

The working went well, lit great, felt good then i accidently blew it out oops. Relit fine, it burnt very fast with a good strong flame, way quicker than anything I am familiar with, I took this as a good sign. But then towards the end the flame parted slightly, not completely, and started twirling and dancing with an absolutely enormous blue flame, and then the glass cracked. I've never had this happen and don't know what to make of it? It was all going so well in the beginning. It then burnt right down with a steady white flame and then extinguished with a vast amount of white smoke (never see smoke before) the smoke lasted for ages and then left behind a black smudge at the top of the glass.

Can anyone help with what this means or what happaned and if there is anything i need to do next?

Thanks for reading.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Hi, revenge --

You'll notice your images did not come through. This forum is not a free divination service, although many folks wish it were.

I have moved your post to the candle divination thread, where we do discuss the theory and practice of divination and provide pointers, but the only thing we can do here is to help educate you.

For professional candle readings, you can hire someone -- you would send them a photo and an explanation of the work and for a small fee, they would read the candles.

Also, you can learn to do your own candle readings by reading this FREE wen page i wrote:

http://luckymojo.com/candlemagicdivination.html

or studying this book i wrote:

Would the remains of red skull candle for love be subject to the same means of deployment as a red pillar for love? I know the skull influences thought so I was wondering if the same practice applies

Hello Blackcattt0123,

Yes I believe so, since the end result (love) is more or less the same. If you're trying to bring in love, bury these remains near your front door. If you're trying to keep existing love, bury them in your backyard.

You can read more about deploying spell remains here:

Hi :)

I had an Adam & Eve vigil burned for me for 7 days for me and the person I love and trying to bring back.

I received this as what the wax and remains looked like: Ring- Thin to medium.Glass - Bottom 1/2-Fog roots. Top 1/2- Light film. Animal in pink bunny suit riding big black bird. Owl wearing construction helmet looking out in the future. Dog and raven dancing tango.

Then this line about the divination of it: One may be feeling on the self-protective side, yet teamwork here will be needed for passion to ensue.

Is anyone able to provide a little more information about the wax or what the fog roots for the bottom half of the glass and light film for the top half etc mean? He can't discuss each candle report as he does so many so wouldn't mind if anyone can provide further interpretations to this?

Candle Wick, 1 -> 2

Unread post by 4Angels » Sun Jun 10, 2018 9:46 am

Hello!

I have been doing work to separate my wife & I because I feel we are both (unintentionally) holding each other back from becoming our best selves.

I have recently been doing work to bring positivity (confidence, understanding, support & luck) into her life. I set and lit a candle last night. When I woke up, there were 2 wicks burning. Has anyone else had this experience before?

Blessings!

4Angels --

Yes, this phenomenon is called "twin flames" -- and depending on whether you are drawing two people together or moving them apart, the meaning varies -- but in each case, it does signify that you have the other person's spiritual attention, as it were.

Vigil Candle Signs Quesrions and Answers

Unread post by BBBunnyXx » Mon Jun 18, 2018 7:16 pm

Hi

A couple of weeks ago I ordered two vigil candles to be lit for me by someone who operates a candle ministry. I was told they're usually fixed and up on the altar by a week later, so I'd say it should be burned up by now.

This might be a silly question, but I understand its a good guideline to check for movement around 3 weeks and outcome by about 3 months for honey jars, vinegar jars, etc, so ... is this the same with candle vigils?

Or are you meant to see signs and movement before the 7th day? (or the day that it finishes burning?)

BBBunnyXx --

You should check back with the person who set the lights for you, Many of us supply candle reports -- divinations by means of reading the smoke and wax marks left in the candle glass -- and those would be taken as signs. If you work with someone who does not supply reports, you might consider changing to someone who does, if you want to know the progress of your candle and its divinatory outcome.

Movement and completion are divined or checked for with candle spells as with any other spell, just as you thought.

Good luck
