Candle Colors & Their Intention

Candle colors and their intentions

Use this area as a reference for your Prayer Intentions, Associated Chakras and Magickal associations by candle color. For better results of your intentions, read through the Magick and the Moon page.

It is ok to use more than one candle at a time. If you use multiple candles, remember to light them in a clockwise (left to right) pattern for good energy flow. When snuffing them (if needed) do in a counter clockwise (right to left) pattern to release.

Here are some common placements that can be used for prayerful, healing or magickal intentions:

Triangle Candle Layout


Use as an aid in overcoming inner conflicts or to enhance your creativity.


Square Candle LayoutSquare

Use this for grounding, enhancing your compassion or unconditional love.



Diamond Candle LayoutDiamond

Great one to use for meditation and for bringing harmony to life situations.


Star Candle LayoutStar

Usually 5 points, and used to strengthen or bring about higher spiritual awareness.



Circle Candle LayoutCircle

6 or more candles are used for protection or to symbolize the cycle or circle of life, the inter-connectedness of all things.
