As most ceremonial magicians know, there is power to be found in correspondences of colors, herbs, scents, and more. Different traditions may assign different meanings, but still, it’s not something one sees in the mainstream very often. Recently, however, Allure magazine published an article about color magick with an eye to makeup, decor, and fragrance.
“Color magick is using the color spectrum and the intention of each color to invoke its magical response,” says witch and art advisor Sarah Potter. To experiment with color magick, you can place items of different colors around your home to help create different energies. If you’re on a budget and want to try it out without spending a lot of money, Potter suggests trying placing flowers around your home to see how they change the mood. Who knew home decor could be witchcraft? Personally, I most often use color magick when working with candles. For instance, I choose green candles for money drawing spells and pink for conjuring up some self-love.
