Not sure if I dressed and properly set this candle to Shango for protection ,but I am a newbie to allot of these things and referenced a few helpful websites on the internet about lighting a candle for a Orisha and offerings they might like put out for them. If anyone can assist me with any of there knowledge or feed back on how to lite and prepare a protection candle to burn it would be greatly appreciated.

I wanted to learn about lighting a protection candle. I have a Red one to Santa Barbara and I wanted to burn it to remove obstacle's and problems from my path and resolve issue's in my life. I have been told Santa Barbara 7 day novena candle is a good one to burn. Are there any special ways of dressing the candle or setting it out on my altar space or prayers good to say over it?

Do you know of any Elemental symbols besides the elemental signs?

I am presently working on the Fire elemental but will eventually do each of the symbols for candle magic.

As many of you may know, the popular Saint candles have many different meanings.  Catholics use these candles to pray to the saints and pleasd for petitions, but many of these candles have significance in other religions.  In my culture we use these candles for spellwork, brujeria. There may be a small amount of Catholisism involved, but mainly these candles represent the Gods and Godesses of ancient Afro-Carribean religions like Santeria, Palo, Obeah...etc.  Here is a basic chart describing some of the more popular Saint Candles that can be burned for your own personal goals.  Very, very powerful stuff, this kind of magick is the basis of my magical work. Of course, the act of lighting the candle and speaking your prayer/chanting is powerful in of itself, but there are some rituals associated with this type of magic...but of course that is to be discussed in Advanced Candle Magic.  Bendiciones. 


Saint Alex/San Alejo:  This candle is used when you wish to keep someone away from you.  "Alejo" means "push away, keep away" in Spanish, so this is very powerful against enemies.  Many people light this candle and keep it on an altar near the front door to prevent enemies from walking in.


Saint Anthony/San Antonio: Used to return lost items/lost love.  I burn this candle whenever I lose an important item, and a simple chat goes as follows: "Saint Anthony, Saint Anthony, please come down.  There is something lost and it must be found." This candle is associated with Ellegua.


Saint Barbara: This is a very powerful candle that increases faith and protects from evil.  Associated with Chango, one of the main Gods of Santeria, this candle is to be  lit with humble faith and pure intentions.


La Virgen de la Regla:  Associated with Yemalla, the Goddess of the Ocean and the Mother of the World. These candles should be burned only by women, La Vorgen protects us from diseases to our reproductive systems, and also when we are pregnant.  Any type of Motherly requests can be petitioned to Her.


Saint Micheal/San Miguel: This candle is burned when support/courage is needed for spiritual battles, or when you are asking for help to overcome circumstances.


Caridad del Cobre: Associated with Oshun, the Goddess of Love, femininity, and fresh water, this candle is used for Love requests and prayers. 


Hope this post is useful to some of you.  :D
