Blue Candles

PaganGreen Paganism and Witchcraft

Blue is for Water and the West, dusk and autumn. A blue candle is placed in the nine o’clock position.
Water represents love, relationships, sympathy, intuition, reconciliation, harmony, healing and the
cycle of birth, death and rebirth, natural cyclical evolutions from one stage to another as opposed to
changes made consciously under the auspices of Air. It is also potent for fighting floods, cleansing
seas, lakes and rivers of pollution, in campaigns to provide fresh water in arid places, in all initiatives
towards world health and the care of whales, dolphins, seals and endangered sea creatures.
Like Earth, Water represents the yin, female goddess in the form of the Moon Goddesses.
Surround your Water candles with silver objects, sea shells and pieces of coral or, for the lunar
goddesses, mother of pearl and moonstones that grow brighter as the Moon waxes.
