The Use of Color in Magick

Basics of Magick: The Use of Color in Magick
by Arwynn MacFeylnnd, MoonDancer, and Lady Badria

In magick, colors represent certain energies, 
goals, people and non-
physical beings, such as deities or spiritual 
forces. For this 
reason, you should include candles, gemstones, 
cords and other 
objects of differing colors in your magick 
rituals. Colors also often 
have personal meanings for us. Anytime a person 
employs the symbolism 
inherent in colors, they are in effect using 
magick. Common examples 
of this can be found in such phrases as "green 
with envy", "black 
with rage", "feeling blue", "in the pink" and 
many more. 

The particular symbolism of any given color may 
vary widely from 
source to source, and depending upon whether you 
are burning a 
candle, knotting a cord, draping an altar or 
creating a talisman. You 
will find that many books, such as Buckland?s 
Practical Candle 
Burning, offer different suggestions for colors 
when used in magick. 
In addition, there are also colors for 
astrological signs and 
planetary or elemental magick.. 

Some magickal systems use "flashing colors" - 
those that are 
complimentary, such as red and green - to create 
an optical illusion 
that appears to flash when placed together. Such 
"flashing colors" 
are said to have great power in attracting the 
corresponding magickal 
forces. "Flashing colors" can be used in almost 
any type of ritual or 
spell work where you will be using colors, 
particularly when the 
visual aspect of the color is important. 

The following is only a guide. Experiment with 
magick and ritual and 
let your feelings about it determine your color 
choices.

enlightenment, cleansing,
