Ceromancy / Candle

meaning of the candle

Uncover hidden superstitions meanings

Ceromancy is basically divination using wax.

This can also be replaced using water or ink. People normally use this method of fortune telling to determine the past, present and future. It is thought that wax shapes appear as images as the candle burns. The practice itself its old in tradition. Not one icon holds this type of universal importance or spiritual practice - the candle! Throughout the Dark Ages, forerunners to the modern candle lights first made an appearance, as well as their use within religious events. Today the candle rituals have started to spread world-wide.

Seen lighting existence, inspiration and even of God, it is no wonder the ancient masters of magic had seen their possibility of using candles in their own individual traditions. Without doubt they observed the strange yet marvelous shapes created when the molten wax cooled, particularly when dropped into water. Thus the skill of ceremony came to exist; ancient fortune tellers would warm bowls of wax and pour or drip candlers into water to determine what shapes they made, they'd interpret the shapes pretty much literally, for example, a bird might signify an outing or some forthcoming news, a heart shape might imply the romance of some sort, and clouds could indicate troubles ahead.

If you are planning to create ceremonious, then you should approach work with candles with care. Try not to drop wax on your furniture and garments. One way would be to select a candle having a dark color (they are simpler to determine when within the water) along with a plain bowl full of water. Light the candle for an hour and watch the flame to see what shapes emerge. Then carefully take the candle holding upside down and let the wax drip in to the bowl. You never know what shapes and meanings you'll find?
