Red candles are burned to increase the life force, for survival, physical health, pleasure, will power and to rouse anger – not the petty anger of spite, but the righteous anger that, if directed positively, can overcome injustice and bring about change. This is therefore a very powerful color and should be lit for worthy aims only and when you are in a positive frame of mind. Those who light a red candle are tapping into Aries and Scorpio energy.

Saturn rules black. Saturn is used for retribution and when we have been wronged – revenge. Be careful, you may feel that you need to punish someone at once with a Hex and make them suffer! That is real power, yeah? Wrong! Remember the laws of return, and avoid this temptation! This is most probably why Saturn is the teacher. Black influences self-control, endurance, and patience.

Spells using black energy are best performed during a waning Moon, on a Saturday when the planet Saturn is strongly placed and waxing. Spells using black need the power of the root chakra. Use with jet, obsidian, tourmaline or onyx.
