5 Candle Magic Spells: How My Past Can Help You Prosper!

I found these rituals while going through some old files. They’re the rites I gave students when teaching classes on Candle Magic almost 20 years ago. Use them and prosper!

The following is a list of candleburning processes towards specific ends, toward the purpose of giving the reader a basic grasp of what may be accomplished thereby. Note, however, that nothing in here is a hard-and-fast rule, but rather is highly flexible and open to innovations on the part of the individual practitioner.

I. Getting Someone to Think About You.
II. Love.
III. Healing.
IV. Luck.
V. Money.


In this exercise, which is directed toward getting one to think romantically about the operator, or whosoever the operator is working on behalf of, one only needs a red female (or male) figure candle, and may use either LaFlamme or Rosemary oil. If desired, one may also make an incense out of the LaFlamme or Rosemary, or may use an incense of a different type, to accent the romantic or sexual nature of the thoughts which are desired to be brought about in the mind of the object.

If desired or needed, a purple taper candle may also be employed, for the purpose of adding additional to the process of manifestation, though the use of purple may invite unforeseen problems. This, however, is solely up the the discretion of the operator.

(NOTE: The ingredients for LaFlamme oil are Musk, Ambergris, Bay, and Myrtle)

The operator, at his/her discretion, may also make a talisman suited to this purpose, designed from his/her own ingenium. Upon each time the ritual is performed, the talisman is to be anointed with the oil being used. Ideally, this should be done on Tuesday and Friday nights, repeated every Tuesday and Friday until results manifest, using the same candles until they burn themselves down. When a candle burns down, then replace it with a newer one.

Table setup: (facing North if possible)

Candle Altar 1

1) The candles marked “1” are white tapers, and are there to represent that you only want this operation accomplished by good auspices. There is no need to anoint them, but if desired they may be anointed with Olive or Peppermint oil. They are to be placed on the table and lit first, either in silence or while praying that this procedure be successful, and that it only come through positive circumstances.

2) The candle marked “2” is the red figure candle, and represents the person in whom the operator wishes to provoke amorous thoughts. If desired, the operator may scratch the name of the person on the candle, but is to anoint this with the LaFlamme before lighting it. While anointing this candle, operator is to state his/her intent behind performing this ritual, and also to pray that this objective be brought about. In stating his/her intent, the operator is to be completely honest, without even the slightest hint of self-deception. If the talisman is to be used, it is to be placed underneath this candle.

3) The candles now being lit, operator is now to light incense (if used), and while doing this, to focus complete attention on the objective. If incense is not used, then operator is to sit, stand, etc. in front of table, at the south side of the table facing North, and then to either pray or meditate on the objective, and may even do both. Alternatively, the operator may choose to read a poem or sing a song which relates to the ritual in question, or do any other thing which is conducive to focusing complete attention on the objective.

4) While operator is performing the step given in 4, he/she is also to mentally create an image of the object within his/her aura, and is to shape this object’s “mind” to whatever romantic thoughts may be desired. This thought-form to be maintained throughout the entire process, and at the same time operator is to feel a sense of peace, happiness, and confidence that his/her goal has been accomplished.

5) After meditation, prayer, and building up the thought-form for whatever amount of time seems natural, operator is to forcefully discharge the thoughtform from his/her aura, and to project the form into the candle, from thence into the actual person upon whom the operator is working. The thoughtform is then to meld with that person, particularly in the areas of the mind, and the heart.

6) This projection being finished, the operator is to cross him/herself so as to stabilize the aura, and then to say a prayer of thanksgiving for having accomplished this operation. Not that this is to be a simple oration, always spoken in past tense as though the desired effect has already occurred. After this, operator is to extinguish candles and put all thoughts of the operation out of his/her mind, to continue on the next Friday, Tuesday, etc, etc, every Tuesday and Friday until such time that the objective has been accomplished.


This one is meant for the acquisition of romantic (as opposed to sexual) love, whether it be from a specific individual or as a form of petition to bring an ideal lover into the operator’s life, or the life of someone on whose behalf the operator is performing this ritual.

The materials here are a pink figure candle, the same gender as whomever the target of the ritual may be, as well as any of the many types of love oils. An incense of Rose may be quite acceptable, but may also be of a nature as to accent the type or the intensity of the romantic love desired.

As for the oil on the candles, a combination of Rose and Basil is quite acceptable, as well as any other ingredients the operator’s ingenium may inspire. A red flannel bag, a piece of unlined white paper, a red-ink pen, and any of the many love powders available on the market, or likewise any powder made by the operator’s ingenium. There are also a purple figure candle and four small pink tapers to be used in this rite.

Ideally this should be done on a Friday night, and should be done at least every Friday, or even every day for seven days. If done every Friday, then it is to be performed until results manifest. Otherwise, if everyday, it is only to be done for a seven day span of time, beginning on Friday and ending the following Thursday. If, however, this is a difficult case, then it may be continued on for another seven days.

Table setup: (first day of operation)

Candle Altar 2

1) The candles marked “1” are white tapers, and are there to represent that you only want this operation accomplished by good auspices. There is no need to anoint them, but if desired they may be anointed with Olive or Peppermint oil. They are to be placed on the table and lit first, either in silence or while praying that this procedure be successful, and that it only come through positive circumstances.

2) The candle marked “2” is the purple figure candle, which represents the person on whose behalf the operator is working (or the operator him/herself), and is anointed with Attraction oil, indicating that the operator or person is being bestowed with the power to attract the person of his/her desires. As the candle is being anointed and lit, the operator is to make a simple, terse and to-the-point oration stating who this candle represents and what is intended to be accomplished through the use of this candle.

3) The candles marked “3” are the small pink tapers, which are anointed with the Love oil. They are placed around the purple candle, starting with the North and working in a clockwise direction, North, East, South, and West. They represent the forces of Love which are to be drawn to the person represented by the purple candle, symbolizing Love coming from all directions. As each candle is lit, therefore, the operator is to make yet another simple oration stating exactly what is to be accomplished by means of these candles. This entire group of pink and purple is to be surrounded by a ring of the Love powder, sprinkled around the candles starting in the East and sprinkling in a clockwise direction. As this is done, the operator is to state specifically that as this is sprinkled, so is the power for the person N. (represented in the purple candle) to attract and to draw the force of Love into his/her life.

4) Finally, the candle marked “4” is the pink figure candle representing the person upon whom the operator is working. It may be an actual person, or merely a symbol for the “ideal lover,” a person who may at the present time be unknown to the operator but who is an ideal mate, lover, or partner, and who the operator wishes to bring into the life of the person represented by the purple candle. As it is anointed and lit, the operator is to state explicitly the name of the person it represents (or “the ideal mate of N.), and once again to state exactly what is intended by this action.

5) On the paper, which should be rectangular and be about 4 inches by 5 inches in size, operator to write down exactly what is intended to happen as a result of this ritual, stated exactly and tersely, and symbols may be used surrounding the writing, or within the writing, as the operator feels appropriate. The paper is to be put in the middle of the table, in the position marked “5,” and is to be touched on the corners with a dab of the Love oil, and sprinkled with the powder.

6) If incense is used, now is the time to light it, and to incense the table, fanning the smoke of the incense onto the candles (operator is to exercise caution not to accidentally extinguish the candles by the breeze caused through the fanning motions). This process is alternately known as “smudging,” “incensing,” or “fumigation,” and as the smoke of the incense is symbolic, in all cultures, of the rising of prayers into the heavens, so should the operator now make an oration appropriate to this purpose, if he/she so desires. The operator should first incense him/herself, then the table, then the candles, in that order.

7) At this point, the operator is now to assume a position at the south side of the table facing North, and is to pray, meditate, read poetry, fantasize, or do whatever he/she so desires toward the end of focusing and concentrating on the person represented in the pink candle. During this time, the operator should feel confident (but not cocky) that the goal has been achieved, and should visualize scenes in his/her mind of what he/she desires to happen as having already come to pass.

8) After doing this for about half an hour to an hour, operator may make and project a thoughtform according to the rubrics given in the preceding rituals of “Getting Someone to Think About You” or “Healing,” or he/she may simply say a prayer of thanks as the candles are extinguished. Take care, however, that all is in such a place that the table will not be disturbed until the next day. This concludes the first night of the operation.

9) The next night, the candles are re-anointed and the words are spoken above them as given in the above rubrics, and the talisman is also to be re-anointed and sprinkled with a little more of the powder, though just a pinch. However, in no circumstances should the circle of powder around the pink and purple candles be redrawn, but should be undisturbed from the night before. In all other particulars, this night is just like the night before, except that the pink candle 4 is to be brought a short distance closer to the ring of pink and purple candles marked “3” and “4.” On each night afterwards, the pink candle is to be brought closer and closer, until on the sixth night, it comes within the circle of powder, and on the seventh night it is touching the purple candle, inside the ring of pink tapers surrounding it. If the ritual is to be continued for another seven days, then the pink candle “4” is not to be moved at all once it has made contact with the purple candle, because now this symbolizes the two people being together, the person in the pink candle being drawn irresistibly by the attractive pull of N.’s sphere of Love.

10) When the ritual is finished, sprinkle a little of the powder into the flannel bag, and fold the talisman in half and place it inside the bag as well. Also, pour in a few drops of wax from the pink and purple candles, and a few drops of oil and a pinch of the incense. Should the operator also wish to add herbs to the bag which he/she feels conducive to bringing a positive result, that is an open option also.

11) The bag, now charged, is to be worn on the person whenever going out, especially whenever going to a place where it is expected to see that person. If possible, one may also want to sprinkle some powder on the person represented in candle “4,” though this is not completely necessary.


First and foremost, it should be noted that this is not to be used as a substitute for proper medical attention, but is to be used so as to set energies in motion to be conducive to healing, as a supplement to a physician’s care.

The essentials of this rite are 6 yellow candles, a purple candle, and the usual two white candles, and the oil to be used is Olive on the yellow candles, Attraction oil on the purple one.

Ideally, this should be done, or at least started, on a Sunday night, and may be done either a) every Sunday, or b) every day as the operator feels appropriate.

Table setup:

Candle Altar 3

1) The candles marked “1” are white tapers, and are there to represent that you only want this operation accomplished by good auspices. There is no need to anoint them, but if desired they may be anointed with Olive or Peppermint oil. They are to be placed on the table and lit first, either in silence or while praying that this procedure be successful, and that it only come through positive circumstances.

2) This is the purple candle, which represents the person upon whom the healing is to be performed. The purple represents power, in this case the concept of bringing power into the ritual. It is anointed with Attraction oil, so as to attract energies for healing to that person. As the candle is lighted, the operator is to say, “This is N., who tarryeth under the illness (injury) of …”

3) The candles marked “3” are the six yellow candles, arranged in the form of a hexagon, starting from the east and working around it clockwise. They are to be anointed with Olive oil, though if the operator is fortunate enough to acquire some “Oleum Infirmorum” (used by Catholic priests for Last Rites and Anointing of the Sick), then he/she may use that, too.

4) As each of the yellow candles is laid out and lit, the operator is to invoke the Archangel Raphael using sonorous and rhythmic language, alluding to his office as Divine Healer and also to his Biblical role in the Book of Tobit, invoking Raphael to intercede and to bring healing to the person upon whom the operator intends to bring healing.

5) After the sixth candle is lit, operator is now to pray that healing shall be brought into the life of the person N., stating the nature of the illness or injury, and asking that it be healed. This prayer is to be directed not to Raphael, but allusion is to be made to him.

6) During prayer, operator to visualize a ball of brilliant, radiant, sun-yellow light forming in his/her chest, and after prayer he/she is to meditate on that light, expanding it to fill his/her entire aura. When the time has passed as the operator feels is natural, he/she is to stretch out his/her hands, palms over the purple candle, and forcefully project the entirety of the yellow light into the purple candle, where it becomes intensified even further, drawing in healing energies from the candles around it. From thence, as though the purple candle were a lens, the light is now to be forcefully projected into the person’s heart.

7) The operator is now to say a prayer of thanks when this is finished, and then to extinguish the candles, in the reverse of the order in which they were lit.


In many places, and in many cultures, we find evidence of practices geared toward generating fortuitous circumstances for one person or another. It must, however, be realized that a ritual for luck is not the same as an operation being done for the purpose of money, as many people tend to think, but are different, in that the latter is specifically for the purpose of generating money, whereas the former is set toward the more generalized purpose of setting vibrations in motion to bring good fortune into whatever undertaking one may choose to perform. It may be “luck in love,” “luck in money,” or whatever, and so the following may be used as a supplement to another ritual which specifically states an objective in which good fortune is desired. If done in this way, however, then the luck ritual is to come first, so as to set up the vibrations and energies to provide good fortune, and then the actual ritual is to be performed, so as to spell out the objective in which the operator wishes those luck energies to be channeled.

The main components of this ritual are one white seven-day candle, one brown seven-day candle, and any one of the luck oils which can be found on the market.

It is recommended that this rite be commenced on a Thursday night, and it is actually much more of a charm than it is a rite. The white candle is put on the left side, and anointed with olive or peppermint oil. The brown candle is placed on the right, and anointed with the luck oil. Operator is to simply light the candles, white first. Once lit, they are not to be extinguished, but are to burn themselves out over the course of several days, so the operator is here advised to put them in a place where they will not be disturbed or become a fire hazard (NOTE: if either candle ends up going out or becoming extinguished, then they are to be thrown out and the operation started over).

At a regular time each night, and for a duration as seems appropriate to the operator, he/she is to sit in front of the candles as they burn, and to meditate on the good fortune which is coming. He/she may accomplish this in a variety of ways, but all is to be imagined in past tense: that is, all visualization, oration, etc., are to be phrased and imagined as though the good fortune has already come. If desired, the operator may also use any incense he/she desires in order to set the ambiance, provided that the incense in question be wholly in accord with the purpose of the operation, or may also be a type to express which area of life the luck is especially needed (love, money, etc.).

This is to be kept up every day until the candles burn themselves down.


There are many techniques for bringing money into one’s life. One of the simplest, perhaps, would involve two seven-day candles: one white and one green. Put the white candle on the left and the green one on the right, light the candles and let them burn down by themselves while the operator goes about his/her daily business.

One may also attempt another pecuniary experiment, involving two white candles, four green candles, and a purple or brown candle. A piece of unlined paper, about 4″ x 4″, will also be used for the construction of the talisman, which consists of the name of the operator, or the person on whose behalf the operator is performing this rite, surrounded on all four sides by the sign of Jupiter. See the diagram below:

FIGURE 1:Talisman


Figure 2: Table diagram

Candle Altar 5

Of the white candles, marked “1” on the diagram, they are to be treated as per the rubrics of all the above rituals. The candle marked “2” is the purple (or brown) candle, and may be anointed with Commanding/Controlling/Compelling oil, or any other oil designed to command the manifestation of the operator’s desires. This candle represents the operator, or the person on whose behalf the operator is performing this ritual (hereafter noted as “N.”), thus the operator is to contemplate this while anointing the candle, and also the significance of the color purple or brown as it is to be used in this context: to command the power to bring down the manifestation of money for N. The four candles marked “3” are the green ones, which represent the money coming in from all four cardinal directions. They may be anointed with any Money-Drawing type of oil which the operator deems suitable. The talisman may be placed underneath the purple or brown candle, or alternately it may be held in the operator’s hand while he/she performs this ritual, and put in a place where no one else can find it whenever it is not in use.

Ideally, this should be begun on a Thursday night, and the operator may choose to burn the candles for about 15 minutes to half an hour each night, while meditating on, and visualizing money coming towards N., or he/she may burn the candles for the same amount of time every week on a Thursday night, meditating just the same, until the candles are finally burned all the way down.

After they are burned all the way down, they are to be disposed in the usual way, and the talisman may be placed where others will not find it.

About Agostino

Originally from Queens, N.Y., and having grown up in Dayton, OH, Agostino Taumaturgo is a unique figure. He is the product of the unlikely combination of coming from a Traditional Roman Catholic background and a spirituality-friendly home. It was in this home that Agostino first learned the basics of meditation, prayer, and spiritual working. In time Agostino completed his theology studies and was ordained to the priesthood and was later consecrated a bishop. He has since left the Traditional movement and brings this knowledge to the “outside world” through his teaching and writing, discussing spiritual issues and practical matters through the lens of traditional Christian theology.

    are there any side effect on this rituals if mistake is made?


    • Agostino says:

      Hi there . . . I’ve never had a side effect from the ritual itself, but there can be a side effect from how much emotion or energy you put into doing the magic. That’s what happened to me when I first started, and learned to control it over time.

      In “My Everyday Prayer Book” in the free .pdf section, there’s a prayer to the Archangel Sandalphon (the “Prince of Prayer”) that’s designed to help manifestation while avoiding side effects. You can always use this after the ritual as appropriate.
