Making oil according to your horoscope

These oils are very useful in rituals when astral candles are used to represents individuals. When it comes to using the astral colors in ritual, there is a difference among several authorities as to the color used. basically, you have a primary color and a secondary color. The famed vooodoo queen Marie Laveau listd the astral colors for those born under the sign of Pisces as blue, the primary color; and green, the secondary color. Another authority suggests the astral color for Pisces as pink, the primary color; and green, white or black, a secondary color. Still another authority gives the color white as the primary color for Pisces, and green as the secondary color. In this instance the basic rule is: whichever authority you place the most confidence in, use their colors for the astral candles as well

There is an oil called Zodiac Oil which is used to anoint astral candles in ritual. Here we have one oil which can be used for all the zodiac signs, but in this cse, when we are dealing with the different signs, it is better to make the particular oil using and herb or flower associated with the zodiac sign or its own planetary ruler

Once again, use one of the flowers or herbs to make your oil. To make a potent astral candle, simply powder a little bit of another herb given for that sign and mix it in with paraffin of the color for that zodiac sign. Add a wick to it and wehn the paraffin hardens, you will have a better astral candle
