Basics of Magick

Colour correspondences

Colour can play an important role in magick and spellcrafting as it greatly affects our emotions and way of thinking. We can use colour within magick in the candles we choose, the clothes we wear, an altar cloth if you use one or even flowers used within the spell itself. Below is a table of widely used colour correspondences:
 
Black Banishing, hexing, cleansing, scrying into hidden issues, divination
Blue, Dark Joy, creativity, group efforts, peace, communications
Blue, Light Devotion, inspiration, peace, tranquillity
Brown Money, business, home-hunting, Earth rituals
Gold Success, Sun, God rituals, fortune, good luck
Green Prosperity, fertility, good fortune, renewal, Earth rituals
Indigo Deep meditation, Karma work, opening psychic powers
Magenta Swift changes, beauty
Orange Power, healing, stimulation, success, Sun rituals
Pink Love, platonic love, friendship, kindness, emotional healing
Purple Wisdom, contact with spirits, opening psychic powers
Red Passion, love, sex, courage, vitality, force of will, victory
Silver Moon rituals, Goddess rituals, fortune, good luck
White Purification, healing, can substitute for any other colour, Lunar rituals
Yellow Communications, intellect, healing, swift changes

Days of the Week

The days of the week have different properties attributed to them and they are associated with different deities and planets which can aid spellcrafting. As you can see, the idea of the days being associated with deities is a very old one.

Herb Associations

Plants have long been considered to have metaphysical energies useful to magick. They can be used as incense or within witch bottles or pouches as charms and as flower posies to adorn your home or to give as a gift. Use caution if poisonous.
