Green Candle

PaganGreen Paganism and Witchcraft

Green is for Earth and the North, midnight and winter. A green candle is placed at what would be the
12 o’clock position on a clock, aligned with magnetic or a symbolic North.
Earth is the element of order, both in nature and institutions such as the law, politics, finance, health
and education. It also represents yin, the female, nurturing goddess aspect, Mother Earth, the home
and family, as well as money and security, and is a good element to invoke when you have matters of
property or money that need attention. It is also a focus for all rituals against famine, deforestation and
land pollution and devastation through unwise industrialisation or building, and for caring for animals
and their natural habitats.
Surround your green Earth candle with grains, berries, fruits, coins or pot pourri. Brown candles may
also be used as Earth candles.
