    • I thought so too. She's the only Wiccan here so no point in going Anonymous.

    • Show All
    • And there are other Pagans here on GaG, not just Wiccans, who used candles for rituals.

    • @dragonfly6516 That's right :)

  • Wicca is a very interesting subject. I didn't know they used different types of candles though.

    • Of course, every color has specific energy vibration, we use some other details too, related to days and hours suitable for performing certain rituals. Some spells also require particular objects to increase the concentration and intensity of rituals.

  • Wodanists (or whom I am one) have a slightly different view on the colours. I liked your explanation of the Wiccan position.

    • Thank you, I'm glad you like it.
      Wodanism is the same as Odinism, right?

    • Yes, but quite different to the fluffy bunnies of Asatru, who do not understand the importance of blood and soil.

    • I see, very cool.

  • Very educational take - I didn't know any of that before

    • I'm glad you like it :)

  • Cool relgion honestly lol

  • What about the lavender candles that women always light for "sexy time"?

    • They are occasionally used as a combination of purple and pink candles :)

  • Wow, I never knew Wicca is so complex...

    • Yup, even more complex than you think ;)

  • Just curious, what does the trivium (Grammar, Logic, Rhetoric) have to do with wicca?

    • Grammar, Logic and Rhetoric are related to any subject you write about ;)

    • Show All
    • yeah but what is it? whats it's meaning and use and where does it come from? The trivium is a method of learning/getting to the truth and it comes from ancient Greece I believe, for example.

    • Triquetra is an ancient symbol of Triple Goddess (the Maiden, the Mother, and the Crone).

  • hey keep your demonic new age shit away from this site. there are children here.

  • Very nice 😊 I love candle's 😊

  • Cool MyTake! Very interesting information about it all. Thanks for writing this :-)

    • You are very welcome :)

  • I have a soft spot for all kinds of candles...

  • I'm not sure if this is related to Wiccan in any way, but one time when I was like 13 (and very stupid), I found a page in Seventeen magazine that showed you how to make a person fall for you by their astrology sign. The guy I wanted was a Leo, and for him it said to find a red candle and mark his initials on the candle, and light it for a few minutes every night for a week I believe. So I did that, and surprisingly he started paying attention to me. Anyway, I didn't realize "white" magic was just as bad as "black" magic, or so that's what I read on the Internet. I eventually had terrible experiences in life a few years after and I'm not sure if it had to do with me doing that candle junk, but thank the Lord I got involved into the Christian religion and haven't had a bad experience since then. Never in my life will I do anything like that again.

    • White magic is not bad, that's just a judeo-christian-islamic misconception... besides, love magic is not white magic, it's actually called red magic. Your terrible experiences in life are most likely related to your karma, mistakes in your past life... or you made certain mistake during the candle "ritual" (which was obviously not Wiccan).

    • I think that's like telling an atheist that God exists, even if they don't believe.

    • Well, that's a solid comparison ;)
