I had a question about ceromancy??? I was trying to find a way to read the candle flame and came across this practice. I was wonder how legit it is??? Is there a way to read the way the flame is acting when a candle is burning on your altar or even during a spell...sorry if that is a super obvious question but I don't want to take anything for granted

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
