I performed a prosperity ritual on the full moon with a green freestanding pyramid candle along with three small taper support candles. I placed the candles in a baking pan foolishly thinking that it would be sufficiently fire proof or heat resistant. I placed a petition under the candle. The candle burned clean along with the support candles but it burned completely leaving no wax at all just ashes from what remains of the petition. In fact the plate wasnt quite heat resistant and it left a serious burn mark on my makeshift working altar. Im not sure how to interpret this. The content of the candles in the petition paper are completely gone and burned away. There is no wax left at all but as I said the heat left a serious burn mark on my working altar. Usually when I utilize freestanding candles there is always a little bit of wax left but not in this case.
I hope that in spite of the burn through the container that this is a positive sign. I burned pyramid candles in the past and they never completely disintegrated or always left a puddle of wax. What does this mean? Thank you for taking the time to respond.
What type of wax are you using? I find that beeswax rarely leaves any traces, non-drip paraffin wax is much the same, leaving behind no remains at all while soy, and drip candles can leave a remain.
It could well be a different variation of wax, or different ventilation in the room that has caused this, using a baking pan may not help either as this could also effect the remains once the candle burns low and heats the dish.
Personally I find the more remains there are the more difficulty a spell will have, a lot of ashy remains can mean difficulties in the working, while a clean burn can mean it all goes well, and gives quick results. I personally am relieved to find no wax remains as for me it shows my working will go smoothly, this is different for everyone however and the most important interpretation is the one you feel is right for your working and practice.
H2OfanRikki thanks for responding! You're the first person to provide an answer and I've asked this question in other places too only hearing crickets! :)
Regular wax paraffin candle. Green pyramid candle with eye in it. Very difficult to find since they are no longer produced. I started the ritual on Monday during the full moon during the hour of Jupiter for maximum effect. 3 supporting votive candle to increase the effects of the spell and protect the work. Candle was dressed with Jupiter oil, Money Drawing and Crown of Success. Also sprinkled some magnetic dust on it. Placed petition under the candle along with the Jupiter Seal #4. Also sprinkled some green money attracting rice around the candle. Yep. I went all the way. This work is meant for enduring prosperity and not fast cash.
There was absolutely nothing unusual about the way the candles burned. The tapers burned down first of course. The main central candle took 2 1/2 days to burn. Candle burned straight through with no or very little dripping of any sort. I did not witness the final stage of the burning but clearly it was very intense at the end. Nothing remained! This has rarely happened in any kind of candle work I've done with free standing candles.
I attribute the burn on my working altar as a bit of carelessness on my end. I should have used a thicker fire proof cauldron or better yet, place the work on the floor in the basement which is made out of cement.
I am perplexed because this never happened. The working altar I can refurbish or dispose of. But the intensity of the flame and energy and a nonetheless working altar surface that has been scorched, still requires for me to look into. As I said, I did pour all my energy into this work as well.
