The new collections of money candles were poured on April 16th and April 17th of 2008. I am putting the collection poured 4/17 on sale first, and this article addresses the specifics of that particular collection. (Clicking the title of this post will take you to the candle store.)
On April 17, the Sun was in the fixed Earth sign of Taurus. I always pour money candles for business, freedom from debt, and other kinds of material success when the Sun is in the Earth signs. Taurus is the sign most often associated with accumulation of material possessions, and in astrology primers, the watch word for Taurus is "I have." Earth signs offer magnetic, nurturing and generating energy to the pouring of candles. Fixed sign energy is perfecting & finishing energy which I find helpful to bring focused intent to the affirmation of attracting wealth.
On April 17,the moon was waxing to full in the Earth sign of Virgo, thus we have double Earth sign energy vibrating into the pour. Mutable signs are flexible, versatile & adaptable.. all excellent qualities for successful wealth management. As well, the house of Virgo is noted for fine analytic skills and successful management of resources.
April 17th was an Elephant day according to the 28 Great Conjunctions noted in Tibetan Astrology. Elephant conjunction is noted as "Favorable. All projects undertaken are successful." Additionally, the elemental combination of Wind/Fire is the third of the favorable combinations noted in this system. Wind/Fire combination "encourages the gathering of vitality and strength for auspicious engagements."
You may also be interested to know that the wax is melted in a double boiler over a open flame. All the lovely energies of fire and water come together in a lovely natural sound that joins with ambient and appropriate music played while your candle is poured and cooling. I believe you will be enjoy your purchase, find the elemental & planetary influences helpful to your meditations and rituals.
