Updated on:


Written by: Tina Caro

If you are using a white candle and want to know the meaning of a white candle flame, this is exactly what you need to read!

White candles are the most versatile and useful candles in magic as you can use them for many different goals, rituals, and spells.

Let’s explore all its main features and learn how to use it properly.


The meaning of a white candle flame can vary depending on the context and beliefs of the observer.

In general spiritual practices, a steady and bright white flame is often seen as a sign of purity, clarity, and truth, indicating strong, positive energy.

In specific rituals or situations, the behavior of the flame, such as flickering, leaning, or crackling, can be interpreted as messages or responses from spiritual entities or as reflections of the surrounding energy.

What is the spiritual meaning of white smoke from a candle?

The presence of white smoke indicates benevolent spiritual assistance. Someone in the spirit realm wants you to know that they are helping you achieve your goals. It can also indicate that a certain spirit desires to communicate or work with you.

What if I light a candle in my home and white smoke shows up?

If you light a candle in your home and white smoke shows up, you are protected, the universe has your back, and you are on the right path to get what you want.

Before we continue

I was honored when I was recently asked by Court TV producers to consult on a case.

You can view the clip below. This case is a great example of why I do not cast any spells that have harmful intentions. As a Professional Spellcaster, I work with clients from all over the world and it’s important to me to remain grounded and stay ‘in the light’ so that I can help as many people as possible.

Working with candles takes skill and patience and isn’t recommended in most cases. I provide these “do it yourself” articles for educational purposes, but it is strongly recommended that you consult a divination expert such as Mystic Amber and allow us to do the work for you.

This way you know it’s being done by someone experienced and knowledgeable and we’re also always here to answer questions about your reading and provide follow-up at no additional charge.

Just as each flame is unique, so too are the messages it conveys.

What if white smoke shows up when we cast a spell or perform a ritual?

If white smoke shows up when we cast a spell or perform a ritual, it means that you are doing it right and your spell will manifest. If, while casting the spells and performing rituals, you feel like you needed some protection and white smoke shows up, it means benevolent spirits are there for you to support your magical journey and guide your craft!

What if the candle burns by producing white smoke only in the beginning?

If the candle burns by producing white smoke only in the beginning, it means that you were on the right path to let your magic manifest but then something diverted your energy and your magical craft.

This might happen for several reasons; it can be that you lost your focus and your trust in the spell casting, maybe you weren’t that committed to the spell and ritual, maybe your goal wasn’t that clear, or it can mean that something is in the way between you and your final goal.

How do I use a white candle flame in magic?

You can use a white candle flame in magic in so many ways. You can use it as a divinatory tool or you can use it to meditate before casting a spell.

You can use it at each moon ritual (for both the new moon and full moon). You can use it while smudging or cleansing your space and yourself, but you can also use it to protect yourself and keep bad energies away while full immersing into divinatory practices.

If you don’t have a candle for a specific spell like a blue candle or a green candle, you can definitely use a white candle and dress it with essential oils and more potions to let it attract what you need despite its color!

That’s why having a white candle in your home is a must when practicing magic!

If the white candle flame turns smoky and black, what does it mean?

If your white candle flame turns smoky and black, first of all, don’t freak out. Even abundant smoke is neither a good nor a bad sign. It indicates that the element of air is present in divination, and air is considered the element of communication and observation.


In this case, asking for double divination with the tarot would be interesting and observing which suits or major arcana of air come out would be interesting. However, when a candle emits a lot of smoke, you are called to use your eyes and mind to read the situation fully. Look at the smoke’s shape, color, timing, and movement to gather all the useful information for reading.

Black smoke indicates the presence of considerable energetic opposition to what you are asking for. If the black smoke continues throughout the divination, what you would like to know is well protected or resists your energy. The thick, black smoke from a candle flame is believed to represent negative energy.

Conflict, bad luck, and opposing purposes surround your request. You should devote some of your time to prayers or meditations and do a cleanse before taking more steps into your craft!


If you need more protection in your life or you need to cleanse your energy from negativity, I can cast a spell for you!

If, instead, you want to know if there is someone negative in your life if you need protection from someone if you are cursed, and more about your life, order a tarot reading by Mystic Amber and see what the tarot cards want you to know!
