Candle Magick doesn’t have to be complicated.
In fact, it can be one of the simplest and most effective forms of magick given you set a strong intention and raise the proper energy. First, you need a candle. That’s obvious. Next, you’ll need something to light the candle – matches or a lighter. The old books will tell you to only use matches, but we’ve never had any problems using a lighter for candle magick. Before performing a candle spell, the most important thing is to set a clear intention. By this, we mean to be concise on what you’re asking the universe to give you. For example, don’t light a candle and ask for “abundance” or the universe will literally you give an abundance of everything. Which can be an abundance of negative as well as positive things.
And, let’s face it, sometimes too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Instead, set a clear intention for “enough money to pay my bills this month.” Set a clear intention the universe will understand.
Simple candle magick consists of four main elements: a clear intention, an anointed candle, the flame, and your energy. Whether you blow out, snuff, or let your candle flame burn out depends on your beliefs. Some people say you should never blow out the candle because it blows out the intention, while others say blowing out a candle will send your intention out on the wind to be manifested. It’s truly up to you what you feel works best. The same thing goes for candle colors, anointing oils, and crystals. Experiment with different things and record what worked and what didn’t. Soon you’ll have your own style of candle magick and won’t even need our advice!
Try this simple candle spell for protection of your home:
1. Gather all of your supplies.
3. Get into a relaxed state of mind through deep breathing or meditation. Clearly set your intention in your mind: protection of your home from spiritual and physical intrusions.
5. Then take your pin/needle and carve the words “home protection” into the candle. Again, while doing so envision the bubble around your home sealing itself over the roof of your home and becoming impenetrable to negative forces. If you have a hard time visualizing, raise energy by repeating and/or chanting the intention “protect this house from negative forces” (or something similar) at least thirteen times.
6. Light your candle and let it burn for a total of three hours (or until it burns out completely depending on how much time you have). If you used the black tourmaline candle from Spirit Nest, the black tourmaline crystal will be revealed during the spell. Remove it from the wax and place it in a front windowsill. If you used a separate black tourmaline crystal, place it in your front windowsill any time during the spell. The crystal serves to absorb negative energy.
7. Before snuffing out your candle, speak the words “my house is protected from negative energy and forces. So mote it be.”

Kicking off a new month, we welcome hot summer nights, new beginnings, and self-care into our space as we all learn the importance of slowing down and grounding to our current environment. Entering the month of July, we are led by the sign of the emotional and intuitive Cancer, encouraging all signs to slow down and live more in the moment. This could have us turning more to our roots and becoming more in touch with our intuition and our emotions, helping us to build a more grounded foundation within ourselves mentally and spiritually.
In terms of planets, this month, we have the influence of many different planetary changes going on this month. This includes Venus, Jupiter, and Chiron as some of the main events. With that said, Venus will enter Cancer mid-month, highlighting a nurturing, compassionate, and gentle approach to love. This could also bring changes to the way we connect with and communicate with those we love, as well as invoke a deeper, more caring approach to our self-care routine. Following this, Chiron will turn retrograde on the 19th of the month, pushing the signs to turn within for wisdom and introspective for the next several months. We will then enter the Leo season on July 22nd, helping us to channel some fiery new confidence that invokes creativity, hard work, and a shift in focus towards creating the life we want. And finally, Jupiter will also go retrograde on July 28th in the sign of the Aries, pushing the signs to deeply examine and evaluate their life and their path to better navigate where they want and need to be.
As you can see, July is likely to be full of many unique energies that are likely to inspire many changes within ourselves as well. But, to give you some deeper insight into what you can expect this month, today, we're going to touch on what energies and changes each Zodiac sign can expect throughout July and how you can adjust your life this month to make the most of it.

As we move through June, we soar into new beginnings as the hot nights of summer take over and guide us to a season of fun, laughter, and adventure. Often referred to as the season of new hope, summer is a rich time of year full of optimism and new beginnings. It is a time when we channel more energy towards our personal endeavors, spend time with those closest to us, and make plenty of new unforgettable memories. Not to mention, it is also a time of personal empowerment as we embrace more of the fiery light within ourselves and allow it to shine freely with the guidance of the sun and the Solstice.
Because of this, doing what we can to welcome in and honor this energy is essential to truly make the most of it and can help to enhance our spells and rituals at this time. And what better way to do that than by setting up a summer altar? So in this blog, we wanted to share a few of our favorite ways to decorate your altar to welcome in and celebrate the summer season, as well as a few product recommendations that align with the energy of this time of the year as well. So, without further ado, here’s our personal guide to setting up a summer altar to make the most of this beautiful season.

Summer is finally here, and it’s time to get out, let loose, and get crafting on all your summer spells and rituals. With new opportunities beaming around us and a new burning flame of passion within us, this is the perfect time to align more with confidence and motivation as we pick up the pace in our lives and become more fearless in our approach to our goals and dreams. And one of our favorite ways to do that is by making sun water.
Energetically, the sun is known as the divine master healer of the cosmos and the creator of solar energy. It is the cosmic force that gives health and life to all, and without it, we and all life of our world would cease to exist. For that reason, the energy of the sun is incredibly powerful to work with in our practices and can help us to channel health, vitality, and healing within ourselves. Not to mention, it can also help us to see more of the light in the surrounding world as well as within ourselves. For that reason, sun water is a popular thing to make in the summer to absorb some of this radiant energy to truly make the most of the solstice and the season. For that reason, today, we’re going to direct our focus to sun water, its benefits, and a simple step-by-step guide for how you can make it for your summer practices. Let’s get started.
