candles and crystals
Post # 1
Different colors in candles symbolize different things, and different kinds of crystals mean different things. Could someone explain what colors mean what and what different crystals mean? I really don't want to do a spell that wants me to use symbols of life and I accidentally use something that symbolizes death.

There's an excellent list of the color correspondence of candles that can be found at I would also suggest "Practical Candle Burning Rituals" and "Practical Color Magick" both by Ray Buckland for some additional resources.

What is most important in working with correspondences and symbols is what the symbol represents to YOU. You may find that a certain color holds special meanings for you that aren't necessarily those that are taught classically. Remember that candles, crystals, etc are tools to help us focus and direct energy. What is really doing the magic is your mind. So it is the effect that a certain color has on your mind that is more important than what it says in any book.

Great advice Lark, I must agree and if I may also add another book I like on crystals is:

The Crystal Awareness Guide by Legion of Light
if you google it you should find out where you can get it.
This one gave me information on the what magical, healing properties they hold as well as what chakra they are connected to.

I also liked:

Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner by Scott Cunningham

Another one that I found to be a staple for my home is:

Wicca for One by Raymond Buckland
In this one he goes into healing and lists in the appendices Wiccan and Magical terms, Magical Properties of Herbs, and Magical properties of stones along with of course the basics like alter arrangement, your Book of Shadows, ethics, the Sabbats, etc.. (Can you tell this one is one of my favorites :), I work with Candles, Herbs, and Crystals for healing magick and I have found this book to be a must have.)
