Candle Ritual Colors

     In Hoodoo candle work you can choose to work with specific colors that help bring the appropriate vibrations for your intentions. Candle colors are chosen by the energies we wish to invoke, by symbolic meanings of the color preference, the astrological sign that might be in the working, or even by planetary energies being worked with.
    The shape of the candle also depends on the type of ritual work is being performed. Many times, practitioners may only choose taper candles, chime candles, or 7 day glass encased novena style candles. Other workers, however, may work with figure candles. Figure candles can be in the shape of human genders, male or female figure candles. The figure candles also come in shapes of the devil, a cat, crosses, skulls, penis or vagina, wedding couple, 7 knobs, prayer hands, Buddha, virgin Mary, and many other shapes.
