The Best Times to Burn Your Candles to Attract What You Want

The eternal flame has played a role in human spirituality since man first discovered fire. This is the origin of candle use for spiritual intention. There is a misconception that candle burning is negative, but the reality is candle burning is a part of virtually every spiritual denomination.

Candle burning is quite intricate. There are certain days best for certain candle prayers, and there are also certain times within the lunar cycle that are best for certain types of affirmations. There are even different energies attracted or repelled depending upon the color of the candle. Here are some of the best times to burn your candles to attract what you want.

Days of the Week

Throughout human history, the heavens have played a large role in man’s spirituality. The names of the planets are in reference to Roman gods, who were all based off of the Greek gods. There is a planetary body associated with each day of the week, and the characteristics of each planetary body are associated with colors. In order to invoke this ancient spiritual energy, people burn candles according to the color associated with the theme of their affirmation.

Sunday is, as the name suggests, the day of the Sun. It’s a great day for intentions regarding the banishment of negative energies. It’s also a good day for attracting healing energies. The color candles that burn best on Sunday are yellow, orange, and white. Anoint the candles with lavender oil or sage oil.

Monday is the Moon’s day. The moon is the representation of the feminine spirit, so it’s a good day for intentions involving communication. Things like reconciliation are best wished for on Mondays. The color candles for Mondays are the colors of the moon: white and gray. Use ylang-ylang oil and lavender oil to dress the candles.

Tuesday is ruled by Mars, the Roman god of war. Tuesday is a day associated with courage, which makes it a good day for wishes for a loved one to return safely from war. It also represents the courage to face personal struggles, as well as physical challenges. Any candle burned on Tuesday should be a shade of red. Ginger oil and clove oil are best for red candles.

Mercury, the messenger of the gods in Roman mythology, rules Wednesday. This makes Wednesday a day of communication, with a focus on business transactions. It’s also a great day for intentions involving the pursuit of knowledge. Yellow, purple, and gray candles are perfect to burn on Wednesdays. Anoint candles with frankincense or patchouli oil.

Thursday, ruled by Jupiter, is the perfect day for attracting luck and wealth. It’s also a good day for burning candles with the intention of attracting healing energies. Farmers should burn candles on Thursdays for a healthy and plentiful crop. Blue and brown candles burn well on this day. Anoint candles with rosemary oil or lemongrass oil.

Friday is the day of Venus, who was the Roman goddess of love and sex. This makes Friday the day to perform any affirmations regarding your love life. It’s also a good day to address any relationship or partnership in your life. The color candle that burns the best on Friday is pink. Ylang-ylang oil is a great oil to use on a pink candle.

Saturday is Saturn’s day, and it is the day for intentions regarding a major change in your life. It’s also a great day for those looking to pursue psychic wisdom, particularly in the realm of spirit communication. Affirmations for locating lost things should be done on Saturdays. This should be accentuated by burning either a gray, black, blue, or purple candle. Anoint candles with sandalwood or frankincense oil.
Candles and the Lunar Cycle

Many people believe the Moon has a special influence on the subtle energies that affect their lives.

The waxing moon is the phase where the Moon is progressing from new to full. This makes it a good time for any intention involving attraction. If you’re trying to attract a new job, a new lover, or more money, then you should be burning your candles during this phase.

The waning phase is when the moon is moving from full to new. This is the time for affirmations regarding removal. If you’re looking to keep a certain thing from happening, then you should burn your candles during this phase. It’s also the phase for anything that has to do with protection.

The new moon is the time to start new projects and set new goals. Lighting a candle during this phase can help you start anew with a fresh outlook.

The full moon is when the moon has completed its journey. It’s during this time when we celebrate all that we have accomplished and pay gratitude for all that we have. Lighting candles during a full moon is also helpful with motivation, self-improvement and increased psychic abilities.

The power of the burning candle is far beyond human comprehension. All that we know is certain days, and certain times of the lunar cycle, are essential for knowing the best time to burn candles in order to attract what you want.

Nighttime vs Daytime When Working Spells


I’ve been giving you lots of spells to work with lately. We know to work with the moons cycles when casting spells, and how the the planetary alignment can influence the energy that we raise. Another point on casting spells is the time of day that you cast it. So today I wanted to delve into that a bit with all of you for those of you who may not be familiar, as casting spells during the appropriate time of day can help contribute to the effectiveness of your spell as well.

Nighttime: As the Moon is out at night, nighttime energy is more feminine in nature. It’s a time when the veil between the worlds is the thinnest. Spells worked at night should be more personal and emotional in nature. You are appealing to the Mother Goddess. 🙂 An example of a spell during this time would be one to connect with the Goddess, spells to do with love, relationships, etc. Midnight would be the most powerful time to cast these types of spells.

Daytime: Since the Sun is out during the day, the energy would be more masculine during this time. This time is better spells that are more active and energetic, may require strength or aggressiveness. Some examples of spells to work during the daytime would be ones that pertain to business, money, motivation or groups. High Noon would be the best time to cast these types of spells.

Dawn and dusk are those periods of transition. These times are best for meditations, and spells that may be blurred between the two energies. For example, if I were working a spell for a job, but that job was extremely personal to me, I was after it more for personal fullfillment then monetary reasons, you may wish to cast it at dawn or dusk.

You may want to consider if you are working with a particular God or Goddess when working the spell as well. If you are working with a Goddess, I would cast the spell at night, when working with a God, during the day.

I hope this helps you on your journey! :))

Love and Blessings,

The Knots Prayer

Get rid of the knots in your life and the nots in your head holding you back.

from Wicca Teachings

Please untie the knots
that are in my mind,
my heart and my life.
Remove the have nots,
the can nots and the do nots
that I have in my mind.
Erase the will nots,
may nots,
might nots that may find
a home in my heart.

Release me from the could nots,
would nots and
should nots that obstruct my life.

And most of all,
I ask that you remove from my mind,
my heart and my life all the ‘am nots’
that I have allowed to hold me back,
especially the thought
that I am not good enough.

Other Satanic Codes of Conduct

  • Always ask the big question. “Why?” Never assume someone else to be correct without investigating it yourself. One false belief can be a downfall.

  • Never let any man or woman think they bested you. When someone talks to you, or interacts with you, show them your dominance. Never let anyone challenge you intellectually without letting them leave with a headful of new knowledge to contemplate.

  • Live your life to the fullest of your own gratification. You only answer to yourself, and no one else.

  • Humans have invented hundreds of Gods. If you need one, pick one that suits your particular needs and orbits best, not the one that is currently the most popular.

  • Do not mock the spirits. It is hypocritical to summon a spirit for help, then form a protective barrier against that same spirit you summoned!

  • You may have sex with anyone you want, so long as they are adult consentual partners. A child or animal cannot express its desire to not have sex, neither can a drunk girl. These types of activities are violation of their will, and very un-Satanic.

  • White magic and black magic were invented with the sole purpose of controlling the mind of the practitioner. To create boundaries that don’t exist between the realm of knowledge and the realm of crude matter. Indeed, once these beliefs become subconsciously embedded, they can become a powerful vehicle for control, so powerful in fact that a magician performing a ritual will curse himself for his own subconscious belief!

  • Satanic rituals do not actually call forth demons, (in the literal sense). These type of rituals are only done by those who are in fear of the very things they are trying to summon. Now, a note here. Calling forth a demon requires extreme amounts of knowledge, and skill. I think that some of the laws Lavey put on Satanism were to prevent his practitioners from harming themselves, as indeed, that is strong magic to try to dabble in. After all, look at your average teenage/rebellious Christian teenager. Do you honestly want them practicing strong magic? LoL. Even then though, the amount of effort it would take to get the ritual to work is tremendous, and they’d either become trapped in their own delusions, or altogether frustrated.
