A Little Bit about Candle Service and A Bit More about Mother Maggie’s Candle Services
What is Candle Service?
Fire. Ancient force of civilization and chaos. Creator of worlds when contained. Destroyer of worlds when unleashed. Illuminator of worlds when tied to rituals. Think of the Beltane bonfires. Think of the ancient Roman boogie man, the Wicker Man, and his hipster many-so-greats-grandson today, Burning Man. Think of the wick threaded through wax molded into shapes and containers of glass and metal of all sizes: a candle.
A candle has become one of the most planet-wide conduits of magic. Prayer or spell set ablaze. The message lifted high by heat and light and smoke. Think of row after row of candles in a Catholic church. Think of rings of candles on a birthday cake. Think of the yahrzeit candle that Jews light each year to remember their beloved dead. Think on the candle placed inside the Halloween jack o’ lantern to ward away the unwelcome dead. Think of Hanukkah. Think of Diwali. Both incredibly important Festivals of Light to millions to mark the triumph of light over lack, good over evil.
Think of the Hoodoo practice of setting lights. Conjurework by candlelight. A candle is dedicated to a specific condition with anointing oils and herbs. It is personalized with a written petition, a prayer on paper, to grant an outcome in light of the condition: a new job, a new love, an influx of money, of health, of sex. The candle is lit. It burns. The petition is released. The intention has been put in motion.
The remains of the candle are now “read” to let the petitioner know how their candlework was received by the cosmos. A crack in the glass, a lump of wax at the bottom of an emptied container, black burn marks or faint wax smudges around the rim, an interesting swirl of herbs and glitter along the glass insides, all of these spell out a message that the candle setter delivers back to his client.
How Does Candle Setting at Mother Maggie’s Differ from Other Candle Setters?
Both Daddy Greg and Papa Candelaria learned a lot about the traditional Hoodoo setting of lights when they worked at Lucky Mojo years ago. (They even incorporated a plain brown bag background into their candle labels so you can you use the timeless classic of Hoodoo/Conjure petition paper without have to ransack your house for a brown bag. They know powerful folk magic is all about using what you have at hand.)
Today, at Mother Maggie’s, they have happily added, like good magpies, bright and shiny bits they have picked up along the years to their own unique version of performing candle service.
If you had someone set lights for you before, you may have noticed that one major difference between Mother Maggie’s and other candle setters is that we don’t burn candles to curse. No “Break Up” or “D.U.M.E” (Death Unto My Enemies) or “Intranquil Spirit.” A main reason is that we are big about intention boosting at Mother Maggie’s. And both Daddy Greg and Papa Candelaria believe the energy behind negative work is as close to a laser-like focus as you can get. You don’t need our help. It’s the positive stuff that is hard to pull off on your own. So we’re here to help you hold your focus and add to it.
How Does Candle Service Work at Mother Maggie’s?
Our candle service begins with you selecting the right candle for your intention. If size really matters to you, go for the 7-Day candle. But what is most important to us as candle setters is your intention. You can play along and pray along from home by ordering a “dressed and blessed” version of the same candle you will have us light (click here). It's a very strong way to add your personal magic along with your own favorite acts of intention boosting: affirmations, prayers, mantras, chanting, vision-questing, vision boards, ecstatic dance. However you work it, we hope you will work your mojo while we dress and bless and burn your candle.
Another way to help us out is to use the notes section in the checkout to write your petition. Again, the greater the focus the more powerful the intent. Think Gettysburg Address rather than The Never-Ending Story. It can just be your name and your date of birth and a one-sentence command or affirmation. Or much more.
Perhaps you would like to have an image from a photo added to outside of the candle—to make it all the more your own—or for the one you are burning it for. If so, you can send the photo to candlesetter at gmail.com (click here to write email). Be sure to include your name and your candle in your subject header (Sister Mary Righteous/Heal).
Once we have your order, we will dress the candle with anointing oils and herbs and a dash of glitter. Add the photo or two if sent. Then we will pray over it using your petition as our starting point. After that, we take the candle to the Temple of the New Mysteries (aka Temple Magpie) and set it alight.
Once your candle is burned, we will take a photo of the burned candle and send you a report via email of what we read from that burned-out candle. This emailed report will also include a 3-card Tarot reading based on the “Do/Don’t Do” Spread of Zoe Matoff (Ian learned of it in Rachel Pollack’s The New Tarot Handbook). The first card is the Situation. The second card is what not to do. The third and final card is what to do. This will all come from candlesetter at gmail.com.
How Long Before I Get My Candle Report?
Our goal is to have the report in your e-hands no more than 14 days after you place your order.
Traditional Candle Service Asks That You Tip Your Candle Setter. What is Mother Maggie’s Policy?
Both Daddy Greg and Papa Candelaria think it’s a wonderful tradition—but they own Mother Maggie’s, so they’re good. Instead, they’d like you to give a tip about our site and our services to your friends if you love the work we do.
