» Rune Candle Spell «
Rune candles can be lit for yourself, or for others. They are meant to send love, blessings, good vibes, whatever you want to call it. It’s a physical manifestation of our positive feelings towards another person, or for when we want to take positive feelings in for yourself. These can vary, and any rune is acceptable as long as it is inscribed with loving intent.
- Candle (tea light, or votive)
- Pencil / Inscribing Tool
- 3 Rune Symbols (here is a site with the gist of each rune if you are unfamiliar)
- The target’s first initial (or the first initial of the name they go by / you know them by)
- An hour of time where you will not be doing anything intensive
- Optional: A set of runes, or rune cards
Meditate for a few moments or minutes; get yourself centered and calm, take in love for yourself to replenish your stores and ensure that you have energy to send out. If you are lighting a candle for yourself, it is still advisable to meditate for a few moments, just to get things flowing.
Once you feel in a clear headspace, if you have a set of runes or rune cards, begin to shuffle them out while focusing on your target and what they need most. It might be protection, motivation, a breakthrough, or just general blessings. Pick three from your bag or the deck, and these will be inscribed into the candle. If you do not have a set of runes or want to be particular, go through a list of runes and decide what you want to bestow upon the other person or yourself.
If you are using tokens or a deck and a rune comes up merkstave (reversed), I would simply ignore the merkstave and set it upright.
