Candle Magic as Practical Spellwork – Lucya Starza

Candle magic is a basic and central skill in the repertoire of witches and anyone who practises magic as well as being a part of many folk customs. Who hasn’t made a wish over a birthday cake? Candle spells are among the easiest yet also the most effective to perform. They are perfect for anyone who wants to have a go at casting a spell for the first time and for the solitary witch with a busy life. This talk is aimed at all who want to use candle magic, from beginners to those experienced in the craft. It’s easy to learn, handy, and many people find it a favourite method. Lucya Starza will demonstrate a basic candle spell and you will have a chance to do one yourself using a tealight if you want to. The talk will then explore ways of expanding the art using moon phases, colour, anointing oils, scent and other magical symbolism.


Lucya Starza is an eclectic witch living in London, England. As well as being a Wiccan and having a long-standing interest in traditional witchcraft, she grew up in a family where folk magic practices were part of everyday life.
