Magical Colour Correspondences

Magical Colour Correspondences

In Pagan magick, ritual and everyday life, Witches use colour as an energy force, mixing and matching the vibrations of the colours to help us obtain what we desire and to aid in healing. From the altar cloth to ritual robes, to the choice of candle colours, ribbons, crystals, powders and herbs all have meaning to the magical practitioner. Colours do affect our moods, emotional and physical health and we should always keep this in mind when working magick. Even if a particular spell does not require colour you can always add colour to boost its power. In magick, colours help you fine tune your intent, focus your energy and help your magical work.
