Practicing magic takes skill and patience and isn’t recommended to do it alone in most cases. I provide these “do it yourself” articles for educational purposes, but it is strongly recommended that you consult an experienced spell caster such as myself and allow me to do the work for you.
This way you know it’s being done by someone experienced and knowledgeable and I’m also always here to answer questions about your casting and provide follow-up at no additional charge.

What is the Meaning of a Red Candle?
The meaning of red candles, in general, is that they provide energy, passion, and willpower. They symbolize desire, passionate love, and also struggle and self-assertion. Red is connected to vital energy, strength, and vigor.
The red color attracts all kinds of positive energy, and thanks to it, you will find the motivation to achieve what you set out to do. If you combine more than one red candle, it will strengthen your capabilities and transmit more clarity.
Quick facts about red candles
Red is the color of Mars, the god of war, which means that it’s the color of courage, sexual passion, and determination. They’re lit for survival, pleasure, and the ability to direct the righteous force, to make a change when there’s injustice in someone’s life. That’s why it shouldn’t be used for unworthy purposes – only for positive things.
Red candles are also very practical in renewing and activating something that is stagnant or dead.
Red is also the color of success and triumph. If you need to bring good luck to your life, light a red candle.
Strongest Candles for Good Luck
If there is a personal or professional project that has not just begun, just light a red candle – that’d be very effective. They can also be used to enhance athletic abilities, especially before competitions.

Red Candle Spells
The power of love spells with a red candle lies in the color of the candle and its flame.
When it burns, it releases energy that will strengthen by pronouncing a magic formula.
Love Spell with a Red Candle
This spell is very demanding so I wouldn’t recommend it for a beginner.
Things you need
- A red candle
- Athame for engraving
- Thirty pins
How it’s done
With the athame, engrave on the red candle, from top to bottom, the name of the person you want to fall in love with followed by a cross sign and your name.
Throw all the pins into the candle.
Light the red candle and recite this magic formula seven times:
“For the lofty names of God Hain, Lon, Hilay, Sabaoth, Helim, Radisha, Ledieha, Adonay, Jehova, Yah and Tetragrammaton.
I command you, O spirits of pleasure, to obey my will. In the name of Bathat turning towards Abracmens, and of Alchior turning towards Aberer, I claim your power so that (name of the person you desire) fall in love with me and me only, so that from now on, every minute that passes, in him / her grow a deep desire for me and me only, so that he / she desires me more than anything else in the world and so that I nourish for myself and for me only the most profound love of which he is capable.
In the name of Bathat (engrave a cross on the candle) that turns towards Abracmens (engrave a cross on the candle), so that the wax that melts is his heart that melts for mine.
In the name of Alchior (engrave a cross on the candle) that turns towards Aberer (engrave a cross on the candle), so that the pins that fall are my desires that overwhelm him / her making him /her madly fall in love with me and me only.”
Fix your eyes on the flame of the candle by intensely visualizing the man or woman that you desire – approaching you and imagining how your life as a couple would look down to the smallest detail.
As the candle wears out, pick the pins and set them aside.
When the candle is completely consumed, take all the pins and, one by one, wet them with your saliva and then with each engrave a cross on the candle.
On a full moon night, scatter pins all around the house of the person you want to fall in love with.
Spell to Reveal a Situation
Is everything that you can think about is a person you’re in love with and now you want to know if he/she likes you too?
This spell will help you determine whether a particular person has a heart occupied by your or another person.
This procedure, dear readers, is suitable for both male and female audiences.
It can be performed in any moon – possibly on Friday.
Things you need
- A very long red candle
- A piece of white paper
- A pen with red ink
How it’s done
Take the smooth white paper you have chosen and write the name of the person you are in love with.
Around the name draw a heart using the red ink pen.
Then place the red candle on the paper. Lit it and let it consume for six minutes.
While it’s lit on you, need to think immensely of the person you love and concentrate on what you feel for the person.
Look at the heart with his/her name and think about it with all your force.
Turn off the candle, and now it’s the time for the important part of the spell.
Here you will have to count the number of wax drops that have fallen on the paper!
-If none has fallen, it is likely that another person occupies his/her heart.
-If there are more than six drops, it is more likely that his/her heart is completely free and even that you can be one of the possibilities.
Obviously, you must not touch or move the wax.
Spell With 2 Red Candles to Attract Love
With this spell, you will attract a new love story into your life.
You must do it on a full moon Friday.
Things you need
- Two red candles,
- And a small round white mat
How it’s done
Place the mat on a small table, take one of the red candles and place it standing on top of the mat.
That will be your candle and will represent you, and the other will represent the man/woman who will come into your life. So focus a lot on the desire for love.
Take it and smear it with honey, put it next to yours until they stick together, like hugging. Feel the hug as if he/she was with you.
Light your red candle first with a match (not with a lighter).
Then light the other one, which is your love. Let them burn all night in your room.
Go to sleep, thinking about your future boyfriend/girlfriend.
If you visualize enough, you may dream of it.
