A compelling time to rebuild, be reborn, let go, and cast away past pain and hurt. Shedding your old self and flowing into a new way of being. Burn to cleanse away anything you no longer need or that which is hindering you. The white wax was poured, consecrated and fixed by The Witch during the auspicious Full Blood Moon and Lunar Eclipse on May 26th, 2021 and the black portion poured with whispered spells and prayers on the May 29th.
In Mikhail Strabo’s influential 1943 book, “How to Conduct a Candle Light Service,” specifically in the chapter titled “The Colour Candle Service in Spiritualist Churches,” from which these brief extracts are drawn: “BLACK is the all effacing colour, as it absorbs and effaces all colours. Black in its symbolic sense can also indicate negativity in thought, deed, and emotion. It can represent fear, depressive ideas, and lack of courage. It is the negative pole of all thought. White is the shade that reflects all colours. It represents purity and faith in all things. […] Angels are pictured as clothed in white. Spirit manifestations are white. This is evidenced because white is the shade that indicates the vibration of Spirit. White is also an indication of the purity of our intentions.” By burning the black over white, all negativity can be burned away, allowing the faith and purity of white to reign.
The vigil casings that these candles were poured into have also been reborn, they were procured from Mission San Xavier del Bac (Spanish: La Misión de San Xavier del Bac) prayed on, petitioned over, & thrown away once they were no longer useful. We have given them new life and purpose. Rising again like the blood flower moon, reborn anew from the charred remains, just as they will help you to do.
This historic Spanish Catholic mission is located about 16 km south of downtown Tucson, Arizona, on the Tohono O’odham Nation San Xavier Indian Reservation. The mission was founded in 1692 by Padre Eusebio Kino in the center of a centuries-old settlement of the Sobaipuri O’odham, a branch of the Akimel or River O’odham located along the banks of the Santa Cruz River. This National Historic Landmark is a premier example of Mexican Baroque architecture and along with the majestic saguaro, is one of the most recognized icons in Arizona.
Shorter and wider then a normal vigil this candle is girthy! Never leave burning candles unattended.
Few were made when they are gone they are gone.
