READING THE SIGNS
Get started by putting your candle in a holder in a quiet space, keeping it away from draughts but within arm’s reach. Your breathing may affect the flame’s movement, and if you’re too close, it may not be safe. As you light the wick, ask your question. Watch the flame for a minute or so and interpret it using the following guide:
A BRIGHT, STEADY FLAME: The way ahead is clear. There are no obstacles to your wish. A WEAK FLAME AND/OR A FLAME THAT GOES OUT: Is this the right path for you? Blocks and opposition lie ahead. JUMPING FLAME: An intense, volatile situation. Consider if you’re willing to change direction.
FLICKERING FLAME: Commitment issues. Either you or another person isn’t as invested as they should be in a relationship or personal project. HISSING FLAME: A message from spirit is coming – exciting or unexpected news. SMOKING FLAME: Any negativity in your life is being cleared. New opportunities will appear.
