How a Green Candle Can Invite More Abundance Into Your World

Green Candle Meaning

• The green candle’s meanings are associated with abundance, money magic, fertility, prosperity, and luck.
• Burn green candles on Friday, the day associated with Venus.

The meanings of Green candles are tied to the qualities of Venus. Though we commonly associate Venus with love, she also governs fertility and abundance, which is why she oversees candle magic for spells related to money or prosperity.

Green Candle Meaning

If you’re looking to bring in more money, improve your luck, or possibly make a situation (or yourself) more fertile, burn a green candle. (And of course, if you can, do some earthly or practical work towards those intentions.)

If you work with chakras, the green candle is said to help open or unblock the heart chakra.

When Should You Burn a Green Candle?

Burn green candles on Fridays, the day of Venus. Her energy is not like her brother Mars. She’s receptive and inviting. In the tarot deck, Venus is represented by the Empress card within the Major Arcana.

This also means that green candle spells are likely to move a bit slower than that spells done with red candles. So, if you’re lighting one to increase your overall abundance, luck, or money, try and be patient and let the magic do its work. (If you’re curious how to perform a candle spell, this is how I do my candle manifestations.)

You can use a green candle to help: create more abundance, bring in money, aid in luck-drawing spells, reduce jealousy, help with success, growth, renewal, and working with nature. Green spells may also assist with reconciliation, affection, and fidelity.

Essentially, anytime you want to bring in more of something that ties to the heart, prosperity, or abundance, a green candle would be considered a good choice.

Green candles can also be used to help you get more in balance if you’re feeling stressed, impatient, or energetically out of control, especially when it comes to matters of the heart.

Some witches believe you can use dark green candles to communicate with Nature and light green ones to talk to the fairies.

Why Is Green the Color of Abundance and Prosperity?

Stop and look around for a moment. Well, maybe go outside first. Almost everything that is growing is green, isn’t it? The plants that are thriving are usually green in color, so it’s no surprise that we associate the color green with fertility and abundance.

When a good harvest meant more money, fertile soil was important, and green is the color of the fertile earth. So, it’s no surprise that in today’s era, we’ve maintained the association between green and luck and green and money.

One thing to keep in mind when burning a candle for financial abundance: Make sure when setting your intention you make the “how” very clear. I’ve read stories of people ending up with sudden inheritances when asking for financial help. If you want your boss to give you a raise or you want to find a new job that you find more fulfilling that pays you more, ask for that.

Why Do We Burn Green Candles on Fridays?

There’s a reason the Cure have a song called “Friday I’m in Love.” And it’s not just because it’s the weekend. It’s because we associate Friday with Venus.

In Latin, Friday was known as dies Veneris or Venus’s Day. The day’s name has persisted in the modern romance languages. Friday in Spanish is viernes, in Italian it’s venerdì, and in French, vendredi.

But, what about the English word for Friday? That comes from the Old English Frīġedæġ meaning day of Frige. Frigg was the Old Norse goddess of fertility and marriage.
