Types of Magick
There are many types of magick that can be practiced within the realm of witchcraft. The type used is chosen based on many factors, such as the purpose or intent of the magick, for whom it is being done, and the length of time the spell is meant to last.
No one type of magick is more powerful than any other. The effectiveness of magick is driven by the intent and focus of the witch but is ultimately managed and administered by Nature.
Burning a candle releases or transfers its energy, usually in accordance with its color. A candle can also be infused with herbs or anointed with potions to further enhance its powers.
