Table of Color Correspondence

Last Updated:


By Morningbird

Many witches like to use color to symbolize their magickal intent during spellwork. Color is especially utilized in candle magick.

How it’s Used?

You can 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 you are using, colors in this case, have personal meaning for you.

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

Clearly, it is important to look to your own cultural upbringing and experiences before taking correspondence table recommendations to heart, particularly with colors.

Additional tips

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.
