Here are five ways you can use the “power of the cat” in your attraction and healing candle spells.
Cat candles look, well...just like a cat. These image candles come in white, black, green, and red. They are traditionally used for luck, attraction, or healing pets (usually cats but some people have used them for dogs). But they can also be used for human needs and desires, too.
Here are five ways you can work magic with cat candles:
Purification or healing ritual for a pet
Use a white cat candle. First, begin by taking a cleansing bath, such as Uncrossing or Obatala Healing sea salt bath (or smudging yourself and space with sage). Then, set your intention for purification or healing, and light the white cat candle with your pet’s name and astrological sign carved into it. Focus your energy on clearing away any and all negativity. Uncrossing or Kyphi are good oils for this purpose.
For healing, Asclepius Healing oil can be used. Optional: Burn some Uncrossing or Asclepius Healing incense as the candle burns (depending on which candle spell you choose).
Send a message of love to a deceased pet or bring a lost pet to come home
Use a white cat candle. After taking a sea salt cleansing bath (or smudging yourself and space with sage), set your intention for sending a message of love. Next, light the white cat candle with your pet’s name and astrological sign carved into it. Love’s Messenger is a good oil for this purpose or you can use Come to Me oil in order to bring a lost pet home focus your energy on the pet finding its way home. The intention would be to call the lost pet safely home asap.
Sexual attraction ritual for humans using a cat image candle
Use a red cat candle. After taking a cleansing bath with Siren's Seduction or Bad Ass!, set your intention for sexual attraction. Then, light the red cat candle with your name and astrological sign carved into it. This can be for heterosexuals, transsexuals, homosexuals, and genderqueer individuals.
For example, Cat’s Night Love oil can be used for gay women, Oscar Wilde Oil or Hyakintos Lover Oil for gay men, or Great Sex could be good in general for this. We also carry other sensual blends. Like with other rituals mentioned here, you can also burn intention-specific incense during the time of the ritual.
Double fast luck or prosperity ritual
Use a green cat candle. After taking a cleansing bath, (a Fast Luck sea salt bath is great here), smudge yourself and space with sage or incense. Then set your intention for good luck and/or prosperity, and light the candle with your name and astrological sign carved into it.
Double Fast Luck or Prosperity are good oils to use for this.
Use a black cat candle. After taking a cleansing bath with the Rebirth sea salt bath blend, set your intention to remove bad luck as you light the candle. You can carve your name and astrological sign directly onto the candle. Banishing is a good oil for this purpose, but be very careful about your intention here (and be as specific as possible) so you don't banish the good (positivity) or your spirit guides. Optional: burn some Banishing incense as the candle burns.
