Which candle color should you light on Wednesday?
Purple candles are the best candles to light on a Wednesday.
A purple candle is so perfect for this day as it was born from a mixture of red (love) and blue (wisdom). It is the color of metamorphosis, transition, mystery, and magic. It is the color of spirituality and erotic fascination, indicating the union of opposites.
Purple often represents wealth and justice. It is the color with the greatest energetic properties of the visible spectrum. In nature, purple appears in many different shades depending on how blue and red are used to make it. That is why in occult symbolism, the presence of red, the color of Fire and life, and that of blue, the air, the Sky, is also connoted by purple.
The lighter shades express sensuality, the darker spirituality. Today, purple can also represent the transition between life and immortality. Spirituality is veiled by a shade of sadness or melancholy, which implies the memory of earthly things. Violet is the flower of modesty, where the blue of wisdom fights the red of the ego.
