The term “figure candle” usually refers to a candle in the shape of a human being, usually nude. Burn a figure candle to cast a spell on a person – on another person, or oneself. It is a good idea to carve any information available about the person. This could include their name, their birthday, nickname, and any other important information. The more detail added, the more accurate the representation will be, and the stronger the connection to the person the spell is for. If possible, add a bit of the person to the candle – hair, nail trimmings, fluids because this creates the strongest bond.
The color can also impact the spell:
Black is for protections and building personal power.
Red is for love and passion.
Pink is for strengthening emotional bonds.
Green is for growth, prosperity, and money matters.
White is for purification and healing.
Brown is for grounding, earthly matters, financial crisis.
Reversible (red wax encased by black wax) is for reversing circumstances.
