The sun is the centre of our solar-system and the life-giving force for each and every living being on this planet. It provides us with light and warmth, without which nothing could live or grow. All cultures throughout time have worshiped the Sun as the most important male deity and life-giving force of our universe.
Astrologically, the Sun represents the self or individuality. It is seen as the divine spark within - the vitality and life force, the source of power and creativity. The sun denotes an individual's sense of self-worth and confidence. It represents higher consciousness, cosmic awareness, and the ability to recognize higher truth, which is a way of 'seeing' with the heart (In my heart I know this to be true…). The sun's seat in the body is the solar plexus and the heart.

Astrological candles reflect the colours appropriate to each sign or planet. They can be used to attune to the astrological ambiance of the month or planetary energy of the day of the week and thus provide a focus for meditation or ritual invocation. They also make great birthday candles.
Our magical candles are charged with our unique magical herbal infusions according to their planetary and astrological association. May they shine their guiding light on your path.

Burning Time Approximately 25 Hours
Candles can be burnt to create a special ambience at any time, though their soft light is particularly conducive for romantic occasions. Candles are widely used for spiritual and magical work. Ritualistic candle burning aids concentration on a specific magical intent. As you focus on the flame visualize your intentions being consumed and transformed into ethereal thought forms. Energy follows thought. To turn your dreams, wishes and visualizations into realities, follow thought with action, charged with the cosmic energy of the sacred fire.
To ensure best results and minimise any possible dangers, please take heed of the following precautions: Burn candles for one hour per inch of diameter to ensure even burning. The wax needs time to warm up and melt. Burning the candle for less than the recommended time will usually result in a hole burning down the middle of the candle and the wick will eventually drown. Keep the wick trimmed to about ¼ inch to reduce smokiness and dripping. Always burn candles on suitable surfaces, preferably fire-proof dishes or candleholders, which will also catch any dripping wax. Don't expose lit candles to draughts as this results in uneven burning an excessive drippiness. Keep candles out of sunlight to preserve their colours. Use your common sense when playing with fire. Keep candles out of reach of children and animals.
