certain energies that contribute to it and these determine many factors

1) Leaning or moving toward the North:
there is actual success to the spell, you will need to work hard to
achieve the goal you are casting for. Notice the flame itself for

the candle is being used for a love spell or spell regarding
relationships, this leaning toward the South indicates an intense and
4) Leaning or moving toward the West:
the West comes dreams and prophecies. Observing the flame and its color
can tell you much about your own motivations behind the spell, what you
really want from this spell/candle and if you are casting with a pure
intention or not.
