These ritual candles were hand poured October 31, 2007 with the Waning Moon in Cancer and the Sun in Scorpio. Waning moons are best used to help release unwanted energies. That both Sun & Moon are in water signs is excellent to invoke the cleansing energy of the water element to purify your space.
Further, the natural palm oil wax candles are scented with rosemary, frankincense, myrrh & cinnamon, clove & other herbal fragrances for psychic and spiritual protection. The wax comes from sources that grow above the surface of earth, again invoking the elements of space & fire... or air & sun.. to cleanse the environment or person you seek to protect.
These protection candles were poured at 4:07 PM after Neptune went direct (EDT). Wikipedia notes:"Astrologically modern Western astrologers associate the planet Neptune with idealism and compassion, but also with illusion, confusion and deception; with religions, spirituality and mysticism, the mass media, creativity in art and music, drugs, extreme sensitivity, fantasy and imagination, psychic phenomena and altered mental states."
That Neptune returns to it's direct path is also energetically useful. As to the date of the pour, in the Western Mystery Tradition, the veil between the worlds is often regarded as thinnest on All Hallow's Eve making access to ancestors, spirits and protective deities much easier to accomplish. Other spiritual traditions celebrate this day as Samhain, while other choose this day to honor the dead.
Each hand poured protection candle is created in sacred space, in careful attention & with sacred sounds in play. Each comes with a unique ritual affirmation skillfully written by Ann George to call down ancient energies to heal and protect the body, mind and spirit. The intent is that all who use the candle benefit, are strengthened, protected and affirmed.
