Ian Parkin is the author of this post.

These 12 candle colors and their meanings stem from a long history of spiritual and religious practice. Learn how their burning flames behave in the spell casting magical arts.

The human eye can detect a staggering range of nearly 7,000,000 colors. The number of shades extant on the astral plane and seen by our mind's eye is arguably even greater. The idea that auras, thoughts and ideas all possess a visible form and thus color brings us to the logical conclusion that color must have some symbolism behind it. Over time, various shades have been given all sorts of different meanings but some ideas and interpretations on candle colors and their meanings have remained consistent throughout, keeping their correspondences from ancient Egyptian rituals to modern-day Wiccan magick.
