Witchy Wednesday - Magick and Colour Colour in magick is very important as they help boost rituals with their differing properties. For aura readings they provide knowledge on what's currently happening with the object or person. Finally each colour effects the emotions and the mind which will effect how a ritual or spell works when cast. Black (Wisdom and Enlightenment) Black technically speaking is a lack of colour but in magick it is used to dispel or absorb negativity. It deals with wisdom and enlightenment, and can be used to combat illness or conflicts. Magicians also use it for binding spells or as a cursing agent. If used in a curse, its main feature would be to absorb any excess energy and negativity. It is enhanced by the colour red which makes it create more impact. It can also help reveal any secret knowledge. White (Purity and Virginity) White is more commonly associated with purity and virginity, but it is also the colour of lunar energy. It promotes spiritual enlightenment by heightening the power of said lunar magick. It also enhances divinations. In rituals it is used for healing and blocking and as protection or as a truth seeker. Cleansing and purification of an area or person would use white. It can be used as a substitution for any other colour.
