Use color correspondences to help choose the colors of your candles, altar decorations and more when planning a spell or act of worship. Colors can also be used in home decor and clothing choices to bring their energies into your everyday life.

It is important to note that colors have the potential to have deep symbolic meaning. Because of this color correspondences are very subjective, even moreso than many other correspondences. It is more important in magical work that the symbols, in this case the colors, you are using have personal meaning for you.

Additionally, colors can symbolize very different things in different cultures. For example, some cultures consider white a color of mourning, while others associate it with weddings, and there's a host of brides to be who wouldn't dream of marrying in anything but red.

Clearly, it is important to look to your own cultural upbringing as well as your own experiences before taking correspondence table recommendations to heart, particularly with colors. If your gut tells you the color doesn't make sense in your spell, you should not use it regardless of what any chart tells you. All correspondence tables should be used as a guide only and not be taken as law. That being said, we hope you find our color correspondence table helpful.
