Aries Astro Candle Info Page
Aries energy is bold and assertive, just like this gemstone candle. The function of Aries is to begin, to pioneer, to create new life. Aries is a leader because this sign is not comfortable being led or limited by others. This sign has an overwhelming need to express it’s true self.
This Aries Gemstone Candle can be used during an Aries full/new moon, by someone with an Aries sun sign or by someone hoping to harness the energy that Aries offers.
Crystal: Carnelian - matches Aries fiery energy because it is a fire stone. So, if Aries feels as though they are losing their fire, they can use this stone to reignite the flame. It brings passion and courage at a time when they might be feeling defeated.
Fragrance: Sweet Orange and Chili Pepper - Sweet zesty citrus blended with a subtle touch of spicy chili pepper and an undertone of black pepper and musk.
Colour: Red - The color red stirs Aries’ soul and enhances passion, energy, and initiative. It’s the color of excitement and assertion, which supports Aries’ active nature and eagerness for life.
Herbs: Blue Sage, Basil & Wormwood – Basil helps to Aries to remain cool and healthy while wormwood enhances the metaphysical properties of the materials used in this candle.
Use these Matras to amplify the magic of this Aries Astro Candle:
"I release the drama of my past
And consciously create a better future”
"I am creating a life that I can’t
Wait to wake up to every day.”
Mini Full Moon Ritual
Gather a notepad, your Astro Candle, a mason jar with filtered water, an item for smoke cleansing, a fire safe bowl and find a quiet place.
Put on soothing music to help you get in a Zen state of being (hint: use the Insight app).
Smoke cleanse your aura, space and materials using a mantra or chant of your choice. (Order your Burn Bundle here to assist!)
Take out your journal and think of an intention you want to have for this ritual. Full moons are a time of forgiveness, gratitude, illumination and amplification. What has transpired recently? Were are the successes? What do you need to forgive in yourself and others? What are you grateful for? Take time to think about this write it out in your journal. Remove the page and fold it. Burn it using your Astro Candle.
Bring your mason jar outside and place under the moonlight. In the morning, retrieve the water.
You can use the water for anything - to drink, water your plants or animals or - my favorite - use the Astro Candle the next day and drip the wax into the water to see what forms and takes shape. These are messages from the Divine and you can use Google or your intuition to interpret it. Does the solidified wax look like an animal? Word? Letter? Number?
Candle Care Tips
Gems may fall towards wick once a large melt pool starts, if this happens just push it back towards the edge so it can burn properly or remove and enjoy your stone sooner. Once your candle is burned down your stone can be washed with soap and warm water to keep.
The first time you light your candle, you MUST let it burn for at LEAST 2 hours! The idea is to create a wax pool that reaches the sides of the candle to achieve an even burn every time it is lit. Burning for less time creates a tunnel that can lead to your candle putting itself out constantly and essentially rendering the candle useless.
Place candles in flameproof jars or cups to double the burn time. Always trim the wick before burning. Even if you’re relighting a candle, trim the wick to 1/4 inch. When the wick is too long it will burn uneven and create soot/smoke.
Keep candles away from direct sunlight. Candles in direct sunlight will lose their colour.
Use a snuffer to extinguish a candle. Always snuff out your spell candles as blowing (using the element Air) will undo all your hard work.
Extinguish any candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep ensuring the wick ember is no longer glowing.
Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.
Always use a candle holder specifically designed for candle use. The holder should be heat resistant, sturdy and large enough to contain any drips or melted wax.
Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans and air currents. This will help prevent rapid, uneven burning, and avoid flame flare-ups and sooting.
Never touch or move a burning candle or container candle when the wax is liquid.
Place burning candles at least 6 cm apart from one another. This helps ensure they don’t melt each other, or create their own drafts that cause improper burning.
Never extinguish candles with water. The water can cause the hot wax to splatter and can cause glass containers to break.
Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. The candle isn’t burning properly. Cool, trim the wick to 1/4 inch, then check for drafts before relighting.
Special care should be taken when burning spell candles that contain herbs. Always remove any labels, ribbons, adornments, make sure the candles not near burnable material and dust off any herbs/resins around the wick of the candle before lighting.
Do not leave burning candles unattended as they contain dried herbs and crystals. Keep candles away from pets and children and from anything flammable.
