Candlemancy is magic using a candle


Candlemancy is divination using a candle

Light a candle, focus on your question and drip the melted wax into a dish or pan of water, then interpret the symbols or shapes the wax makes as it hardens. This method works best with dark coloured candles, or you can use the proper colour candle representing the spell your doing at the time.

When you try this you will need the long taper candles  (8 inches works well ) of the 4 basic elements, green, yellow, red and blue. You will also need a large vessel filled with cold water. This can be of anything, glass is best they can withstand heat. It’s probably not a good idea to use plastic.

Put the candles, lighter and the vessel of water on a table or other flat surface. If you have a particular question you want answered, use the appropriate candle colour. If the question does not need to be related to any of above the element colours, use white. If you have no question but simply desire a glimpse into your future, use white or yellow.

Calm your mind, thinking about your question, light the candle and hold it upright over the water for a moment, when the candle is fully flaming and has begun melting the wax, tilt it and hold steadily about an inch over the water’s surface. The wax will begin dripping onto the water.  As the wax drops it will form a pattern on the surface of the water. If you are having trouble achieving this, begin moving the candle slowly, allowing the drops to touch one another and so to form a line on the water after  a few minutes a definite shape will appear on the water  now look at the shape.

What does it look like, Pick it up carefully so as not to break it and turn it over. Does it look the same or different, study it to see if it says anything to you symbolically.

Here are some shapes and patterns commonly found in the drip method and their traditional meanings.

This is the most common, because of the way the wax rotates on the surface of the water, spirals represent reincarnation, the universe, the world or perhaps a particular life. The interpretation is a personal thing no one else can tell you exactly how these symbols relate to you. Usually the first meaning that comes into your mind is the correct one.

Circles represent eternity and fertility, and can be interpreted according to the question asked. Fertility would perhaps represent a new activity, financial security, or even a new baby on the way. It may also signify the successful completion of a project. Eternity may mean just that – it will be a long time before something is completed or comes to pass.

Broken Lines 
If the wax drops form into lines but they aren’t connected, it can represent a lack of focus in your life, business or other pursuits. It can also signify forces working against you, but don’t take this too literally it is a sign that changes must be made to bring order into your life.

Dots, unconnected wax drops, sometimes are the only thing you can get this sometimes signifies lack of attention to the divination, but it can also mean that the problem is too complex for an answer at this time. If you try several times with only dots coming up each time, you’re either asking the wrong questions, or if you haven’t asked one, you shouldn’t be seeking a glimpse into your future at this time. It’s probably best to let the candles and water rest, and to attempt a different method.
