Beltane: A Quick Guide

Hello all! I hope you're having a good weekend.

I thought it would be a good idea to mention Beltane today, seeing as it's TOMORROW. I thought I'd give some insite into what it is, what kinds of magical things you can do to celebrate, etc.

So Beltane holds the spot on the wheel of the year between the spring equinox and the summer solstice, and symbolizes the waking of the earth. April showers have brought the May flowers, and now we celebrate that! Beltane is often celebrated by holding bonfires, planting flowers and trees, and is also the perfect time for Handfasting ceremonies.

So what can we do to magically for Beltane?

This is the ideal time to do magic to bring in abundance, and to celebrate unions (whether they're romantic or otherwise). 

At Candle Wick we can help through a couple of our favorite products for this time of year:

  • Abundance Blessing Kit: Through this trio that includes Attraction, Prosperity and Stability candles, you can bring abundance in whatever it is you seek. This set is great for Beltane altars.
  • Adam & Eve, Alice & Eve, Adam & Steve: Celebrate your union with these candles! 
  • Witches Brew Original Candle: Amplify and strengthen your magic. Strengthen the spirit and enlighten the soul to energize and empower any witch's spell craft. 

I wish all of you the happiest Beltane! Thank you so much for reading.

Weekly CMO Reading: April 23, 2017.

Hello all! The Coventry Magic Oracle for this week gave me the Adam & Eve Motor City Hoo Doo candle, The Love Affirmation candle, and the Fast Cash Wicked Witch Mojo candle, so it's looking like the next week is going to be a good one for love and prosperity!

Adam & Eve will amplify romantic feelings you and your partner have for each other; and is great for both rough patches and adding some more energy to what originally sparked the relationship.

The Love Affirmation opens us up to love of all sorts. Use this to let go of what is keeping you from letting love in.

The Fast Cash Wicked Witch Mojo candle reminds us that we can't live on love alone, but when you add money to the mix, anything is possible!

This Weeks Question: How do I want to experience love?

Coventry Magic Oracle Reading for March 19, 2017

IMG 20170319 115954

This weeks Coventry Magic Oracle reading contained Dragon's Blood, Meditation, and Heart! 

My thought for this weeks reading was to figure out what we should all do to prepare for the upcoming Mercury Retrograde on April 9th. I know, it's a ways off still, but what can I say, I like to be prepared, and retrogrades can be rough. So here's the deal:

Dragon's Blood: Awaken your inner dragon! Amplify your personal power with this Witches Brew candle. 

Meditation: This Affirmation will bring clarity and still your mind during this hectic time.

Heart: The Heart Blessed Herbal candle will calm the tentions which are sure to by high during a Retrograde. Calm arguments and bring in some understanding with this candle.


Good luck to all of you! See you next week!

Weekly Oracle Reading: Negativity

Weekly Oracle Reading: Negativity

Ridding one's self of negative energy seems to be the theme of most of my customers magical purchases this week, and now is the perfect time to do it! Or at least that's what the CMO says. 

I did a reading for clearing, and got the following three candles that I suggest you get if you are getting rid of some nasty energy this week.

Makin' Tracks by Wicked Witch Mojo: While this is most often used to get rid of nasty neighbors or co-workers, hot-food those troublesome life issues with speed and efficiency. 

Reversing by Motor City Hoo Doo: All the drama and junk hanging around your spirit needs to go back to where it came from.

Recover Lost Money by Motor City Hoo Doo: Uncover your money leaks so you can clear them out.

Good luck to everyone kicking that negative energy out of your life! Do a reading for yourself with our online Oracle to find which candles you need.

Weekly Coventry Oracle Reading!

Weekly Coventry Oracle Reading!

This week marks the first of many weekly readings that I will be doing with the Coventry Magic Oracle deck from Coventry Creations. As many of you know, we have a copy in the store, and if you are feeling indecisive or looking for guidance, this deck helps you pick the candles you need, and how to use them for love, prosperity, protection, healing, and clearing.

This week, with a Retrograde in effect, I felt that it would be best to go with a Healing reading.

Card One: Lakshmi World Magic Candle

Lakshmi's healing comes with the relief of stress around financial issues. Call to Lakshmi in her eight manifestations of wealth

Card Two: Road Opener Motor City Hoo Doo Candle

You want your healers and doctors to know exactly how to help you and bring you back to good health.

Card Three: Soul Mate Affirmation Candle

It's time to heal your soul and all the times you've abandoned yourself over being hurt.

Sharon Knight and the Intimate Show.

Sharon Knight and the Intimate Show.

"I am deeply in love with this beautiful jewel of a planet we live on, and believe this world is full of magic if only we can remember to see it." [x]

That quote right there is from Sharon's bio page on her website, and reading that is when I knew that she was the coolest.

Sharon Knight's music is nothing if not some of the most magical that I've ever heard, and I was psyched to learn that she was coming to Candle Wick to perform. 

Some background: Sharon is a Celtic folk singer hailing from San Francisco and has an astonishing voice, as well as some rockin' octave mandolin skills. She has toured nationwide with her collaborator Winter who, by the way, co-founded their gothic folk metal band Pandemonaeon (bold text because how rad is that genre?), but this is going to be her first time performing in Michigan! 

Can you feel my excitement? 

August 6th, at our new 175 W. Nine Mile location. Join us!

You can listen to Sharon's songs on her website, link above, and you can purchase tickets for her show right here on our website! [click for tickets

Coventry Magic Oracle: Reading One

Coventry Magic Oracle: Reading One

Did you know we have an online version of the Coventry Magic Oracle? Well, you do now! It contains a card for each Coventry Creations candle and tells you how these candles are going to help you with prosperity, love, healing, protection and clearing. Today I did a clearing reading on the online oracle, for anyone trying to get rid of some negativity, and found that you should use the following: 

Prosperity Affirmation: "Time to hire a professional; you're not supposed to do this on your own."

Fiery Wall of Protection: "A good brush fire to clear the clutter can help your plans and ideals grow even faster."

Money Draw Blessed Herbal Candle: "Unlucky no more." 

Use these three candles, together, to get rid of the spiritual clutter and bring in some prosperity.

7 Day Candles: A How-To

7 Day Candles: A How-To

Hello all! 7 Day candles are back at Candle Wick Shoppe, by popular demand, and we've been getting lots of questions about them, and I'm writing this to answer a few of them! 

What do the different colors mean?

Red: Love, attraction and passion.
Pink: Self love and wishes.
Yellow: Happiness and positive energy.
Green: Money draw and earth connections.
Blue: Court case magic, truth, and communication.
Purple: Psychic awareness and good judgement. 
Brown: Court case magic and grounding.
Black: Protection and hexing.
White: Healing and cleansing.

How do I use a 7 Day?

Pick the candle color based on what you are doing, then the herbs and oils. I'll use Money magic as an example; you would want to get a green 7 Day candle, at least three herbs, and between one and three oils (you usually only need one, if you used the herbs). Mix the herbs together (for Money Draw work, I'd use High John root, Patchouli and Five Finger Grass), and put a Money Draw oil on the candle, then put the herb mixture on the top of the candle. Use any extra herbs/oil in a sachet or mojo bag and carry it with you, and burn the candle for seven days. I recommend starting on a Sunday, and finishing the candle the next Saturday, to finish out the week.

Does the color matter that much?

I want to say yes, but sometimes there are other factors that come into play when you're about to buy your candle. For instance, you might know that green is the 7 Day color you should use for money, but you feel like the red one would work better for you. OR we could be out of brown 7 Day candles; how are you going to do that court case magic now!? Blue will work just as well. Take into account how you feel and what symbolizes what to you too.
