“white candles are generally burned during meditation and household purification rites, as well as to promote peace and tranquility. green tapers lend healing energies, luck and prosperity to the home, while pink increases loving feelings and is ideal for entertaining since it enhances friendships. Red candles lend protection & passion to those in our home as well as magically shoring up the homes physical structure. Yellow candles promote calm intellectual moods and are fine for studying or reading. Purple candles can be burned during times of illness or during household protection spells since purple speeds healing and is a source of extra power Blue candles are burned in the bed room at night for protection while asleep. they also induce prophetic dreams. burn brown candles to solve any other household problems and to protect pets.””
Excerpt from “Three Books on Occult Philosophy” by Henry Cornelius Agrippa of Nettesheim. (below)
“For all colours, black, lucid, earthy, leaden, brown, have relation to Saturn. Sapphire and airy colours , and those which are always green, clear, purple, darkish, golden, mixed with silver, belong to Jupiter. Red colours, and burning, fiery, flaming, violet, purple, bloody, and iron colours, resemble Mars. Golden, saffron, purple, and bright colours, resemble the sun. But all white, fair, curious, green, ruddy, betwixt saffron, and purple, resemble Venus, Mercury and the Moon.”
