A relative of mine placed my box of black candles out in the garage without telling me (she’s OCD, always moving things around), the damn things melted out there so then she tossed them in the garbage. I was looking foward to doing a ritual tonight, my current candles burnt completely out, and my location only has one metaphysical shop which is brace yourself…owned by a christian and his wiccan wife. They refuse to carry black candles because they think they are evil so now I have to wait 8-11 days for my new candles to arrive in the mail.
Can I substitute any other colors in place of black? I DO have violet and red candles on hand. I know with white magick you can substitute any color with white but I’m not doing white magick. Every ritual I planned on doing in the next few weeks calls for black candles, I don’t want to be forced to put everything on hold until they arrive.
