Purple candles represent the wise teacher and keeper of hidden knowledge, unconscious wisdom, the higher self. It is the color of the mystic. Purple candles aid mirror scrying, and are good for psychic protection and for the prevention of nightmares. Purple candles can also be used for all rituals where the facts are not clear, for matters of secrecy, for healing the spirit and banishing what lies in the past but still haunts the present, and for remembering departed loved ones.
The color has a meaning steeped in meditation, divination, and hidden knowledge. Those who burn purple candles do so to expand upon what they already have. They may also wish to obtain spiritual protection, find recognition, or seek reconciliation with something that exists in the realm of the spirits.
Purple is effectively used against black magick, demonic possession, to drive away evil, and for spiritual and psychic healing. It is also used to through up a veil of spiritual protection.
