Casting fire spells is one of the most common ways of harnessing the elements, usually with candles. Fire is a powerful element that represents all kinds of passion, energy, ego, willpower, creativity, strength and even anger.
Though you can cast spells specifically for these things, fire is usually introduced to bring more energy to your purpose, even if that purpose is not fire-related on its own. Make sense?
These are the kinds of things you can use in your spellwork to bring in some of that fire energy:
- Altar tools like an athame or candles
- Stones such as carnelian, garnet, bloodstone
- Oils and herbs like cedar, cinnamon, basil and rosemary
As I mentioned, most fire spells include candles as a way of using the element. You can also burn things, though this isn’t always practical. Having a fire-proof cauldron can help if you want to use more fire.
Joyful Candle Spell
Use the power of fire to bring a little more joy into your life. Supplies for this spell:
- 3 orange candles
- Marjoram and rosemary
- Cedar oil
Anoint the candles with cedar oil, and light them. Sprinkle some of the herbs around the bases of the candles and focus on the flames. Feel the heat of the fire fill up your soul. Repeat the following:
Happiness and joy come into my life
Away with anger, stress and strife
I am happy, I am free
No more negativity
Pass your hands through the warmth of the flames (preferably without burning yourself). Leave the candles to burn down on their own.
Give yourself a magickal perk-up and shine with the energy of fire. Get your spell stuff together:
- Red candle
- Glass of red wine
- Cinnamon (powdered)
You can use non-alcoholic wine or even juice if you prefer, but the spell is stronger if you use the real stuff. Pour your wine into a nice glass, and add a small sprinkle of cinnamon to it. Dip your finger into the wine and give it a little stir.
Run your wet fingertip around the rim of the glass until you hear a ringing tone. Watch the candle flame and visualize it shining out from within yourself.
Drink the glass of wine and feel its warmth flow through you. Place the empty glass next to the candle, and let it burn down.
