now me changing people’s lives,

with Safiya Randera
The Spring Equinox is the perfect time for planting seeds and dreaming our visions of the coming year. The full moon is "FULL ON" and is an equally powerful time to release. One way of working with this energy is through candle magic. Candle magic is a way of harnessing the unseen energy of the Universe to effect a change in the physical world-whether that change is tangible, like more money in your pocket, or intangible, like releasing emotions that have you feeling stuck. Candle magic is not only powerful but is also regarded as the easiest form of magic for beginners to learn. This class will cover common ways to intentionally use candles to manifest or release. We will discuss colour correspondences and associations, candle anointing, sigils, petition papers, numbers and timing.
