Color Magic

As a wiccan you learn that everything around you has its own energy, it's own vibrations.  Certain things are known to alter or enhance these energies.  Things like scents, sounds, or even gemstones.  An easy to recognize example of this is when you hear a song that you haven't heard in a very long time and it immediately reminds you of the last time you heard it and how you felt at that time.

Colors are no different.  "Red cars are pulled over the most because people assume they are speeding."  "Wear blue to court because it makes you look trustworthy."  

One of the simplest and most effective ways to use color magic is to burn a candle whose color matches or compliments your intent.  Other examples are altar cloths, garments, inks, papers, and fabric elements of talismans or amulets.  Below is a simple reference guide for the basic colors and their uses:
