Candle Magic: Harnessing the Philosophy of Fire

Candle Magic: Harnessing the Philosophy of Fire

It’s a ubiquitous part of magic today, the idea of burning spell candles upon an altar. These vessels of magical force and bright-burning, world-shaping energy come in many forms and are used in many ways. Mastering fire to illuminate our witchcraft is second-nature to most practitioners in our world and, yet, often people find their candle spells lacking in a certain punch and profundity of result.

This short class explores the fundamentals of candle magic and some of the integral tricks of the trade that often go unsaid in many books on the subject. With these strategies of spellcraft under your belt, you can guide your sorcery of spectral lights to new heights as you make full and informed use of the myriad of candles available to you.

An effort of Practical Occult to fill in the gaps of 101 practice that often fall through the cracks, this class endeavors to instruct in a way more similar to a seated chat with a mentor that walks the student through the subtle details of building a cohesive outlook, philosophy and personal style regarding this type of magic that is so often seen as pre-packaged and, if one is both bold and honest, underwhelming.

This class includes:

  • An explanation of different sort of candles, their uses, pros and cons
  • A discussion on why fire and light enhance sorcery and what to do to make the best of that
  • Strategies for any budget as to how to craft your own candle spells
  • A fully system-independent method of patterning candle sorcery to your own personal practice

For the discerning individual interested in fortifying their practice, a class like this is a welcome offering in our growing series of instructional lessons on the various aspects of magic in the modern world.


All classes are pre-recorded, approximately one hour each, and facilitated by Alexander Moore.

After purchase the course will be emailed within 1-3 days.
