Correspondences astrology

Uncover hidden spiritual meanings

Materials used in magick which relate to their specific goal.

These can be herbs, stones, moon phases, colors, numbers, etc. An example would be mugwort used in a dream spell, as mugwort is a popular herb corresponding to dreams.

Each item, color, candle, herb, or mineral, etc. has a correspondence to something else.

Much like everything is connected, these correspondences assist in ritual when perhaps one element is not present or to increase the powers of another thing by having more correspondences regarding the desire.

The Correspondence Used In Magic

Categorization has been used throughout history to enable scholars to understand the world. The natural world’s earliest scholars were priests, magicians, philosophers, shamans, and astrologers. They organised magical workings in categories depending on the impact made on them; according to medicinal and magical values and checking these values against other existing things. That is what brought about the modern magic system we have today.

Here are some of the correspondences used in the magic world

Colour Correspondence

Using the color correspondence, it helps those who practice magic to choose the altar decorations, the color of the candles and when planning an act worship or spell worship. Energies can be brought into a home by the home color décor and clothes choices on a daily basis. Colors have deep symbolic meanings, making them be more subjective than any other correspondences. It is important that the colors being used in magic have a personal meaning. The color has to make sense in the spell before one settles on it. Any color correspondence table should be taken as a guide and not law.
