Colour plays a powerful role in ritual Witchcraft and Magick.
Colours are carefully considered and assigned to all aspects of Spell
making, Ritual magick and Festivals.
Colours have symbolic associations
representing occult powers, and have their own energy frequencies that emanate
specific influences. Careful
consideration needs to be given to colour correspondences when used with
Candles, Clothing, Symbols, Deities influences, Planetary influences, Zodiacal influences and Magickal Days.
