What is the Meaning of a Yellow Candle?
The meaning of the color of yellow candles is closely related to money and material goods and also to the communication on all levels, from personal to spiritual, and creativity.
It favors economic wealth and stimulates the acquisition of higher authority.
This color is associated with intellectual and creative activities but also with independence and professional skills.
This color is also closely related to sunlight, hence the candle color of joy, light, and life.
That is why it is also related to the ego and the good character of people, we gain trust in ourselves and actions, and all this leads to the improvement of our physical and emotional health.
Quick facts about yellow candles
However, this candle has a small dark side as well.
It’s related to envy and/or contempt and it is even said that if use too many yellow candles in a ritual, this could mean selfishness or too much ambition, especially if it’s a money ritual.
As always, we will refer to the use of this type of candle within white magic.
What are Yellow Candles used for?
The yellow candle also serves to invoke the forces that will make you improve communication or your income. Besides wealth and better communication, these candles will also fill your house with warmth, joy, and harmony.
They will also help you to clean your home and eliminate negative energies, envies, grudges, etc.
When you light a yellow candle, you will be making selfishness disappear while carrying your house of peace and harmony.
A tip: same as a white candle, the yellow candle is also a neutral candle.

A Ritual to Attract Financial Prosperity
That’s a simple ritual to attract what you desire.
Things you need
- Yellow candle
- Olive oil
- A pin
- Homemade essential oil
- Sheet of paper
How it’s done
Pick a new candle (if you don’t have a solid candle holder choose candles that are ‘standing’ on their own, even if it’s short – these are my favorites as they are ‘safe’).
Load it with extra virgin olive oil, from top to bottom, with the base ‘pointed’ towards you.
Write your intent on the candle (abbreviated, of course) with a pin or a thin metal tip.
Cover the candle with oil once again (as mentioned above)
If you can, you could ‘create’ your favorite oil, such as pine oil (using pine ‘leaves’ and leaving them in oil, or using basil in the same way).
As you load the candle with oil the second time, concentrate on your intention, even aloud.
On a sheet of paper, ideally of the same color as the candle (otherwise white is fine), write your intent clearly and precisely.
Light the candle and place it in front of you, pointing north, displaying your goal.
Some imagine that all the drawers are filled with gold coins or money, and others might imagine how they will live once they have achieved financial prosperity.
At this point, after viewing the intent, some burn the piece of paper with the candle flame.
They do that by placing it on an ashtray or metal pan and letting it burn to the bottom while concentrating on intent.
Others, instead, put this paper in front of the candle (but far enough not to burn), to make it illuminated by the light of the candle and to help you visualize and express your intent.
I would suggest the second version (not to burn the sheet), but the choice is yours.
Once the visualizations and the expression of the goal aloud, even in rhyme, if you prefer are both finished, let the candle burn by itself.
Yellow Candle Money Spell
This spell is focused on channeling esoteric energies that surround us to open the paths of good fortune and improve our economic state.
It is a straightforward spell, but we still must have a positive attitude and only have positive thoughts in our heads.
The more good energy we transmit to the spell, the more likely it will work.
Things you need
How it’s done
Place the unlit candle on the plate.
Around it, place coins, forming a circle around the candle and all at the same distance from each other.
Now light the candle and spread some cinnamon over the coins.
Close your eyes and place your hands on each side of the plate, but without touching it.
Channel your positive energy to your hands and notice how your energy is transferring to the candle.
Then open your eyes and remove the cinnamon that is on top of each coin.
Now place some candle wax on top of each coin.
Let the candle burn entirely and put the whole place on top of a closet or somewhere similar, where no one can find it.
You will notice how little by little, how you will begin to see abundance.
There is an additional variety for this spell, it is less effective, but you can also do it.
The procedure is the same, but when we finish the spell, we will have to place the coins on the ground forming a circle, and then we’ll need to step in the center of it.
Once inside the circle, you will have to give nine strong (and loud) stomps on the ground and say, “Abundance I call you!”
This variation of the spell will help you attract your desires by utilizing the energies of mother earth.
These energies will charge our coins, and this will, in the end, help you.
