Welcome back, witches. This week, we will be discussing fire scrying. Fire scrying is when someone or something communicates via candle flame. 


Fire scrying can be used when a witch needs information that cannot be easily accessed. For example: communicating with spirits, trying to seek outside information on a situation, relationship questions, etc. Think of it as tarot in the form of a flame.


Many witches use fire scrying to communicate with deities as well. Oftentimes, candle flame is thought to be one of the easiest forms of communication, next to incense smoke or libanomancy. 


In my experience, the type of candle does not matter when you are scrying. Unless you are going off of color for intent/dedications. For example, if you are trying to communicate with Hel, you should use a black candle. If you are trying to communicate with Loki, you should use a green candle. 


In order to fire scry, one must enter a trance-like state. You must be extremely calm, quiet, and focused. Just like with Libanomancy, first ask questions that you know the answer to.




Is my name Ceresa? Do I live in California?


After those answers are responded to correctly, you may begin your session. If the answers are not correct, you may not be speaking with who you want to be.


To know if the spirit is saying yes, your flame will not waver. In fact, the flame should burn higher than before the question is answered. If the answer is no, your flame will dim to almost nothing. If the flame is moving rapidly, there is either an argument, confused energy, or the path has not yet been determined. If the flame splits into two, you may have more than one spirit present. That, or there is more than one path to travel. 


When communicating with deities, ask before you blow out your candle. If the answer is no, it means they have more to tell you or they want to stay. Keep asking questions. If your flame goes out on its own, it means you’ve either upset your spirit/deities or they wanted to leave. 


If a candle sparks when you light it, it means a spirit or deity is trying to contact you. Look out for certain signs. 


Please be careful when performing ANY kind of divination. You can never be absolutely sure of who you are dealing with. Stay safe. 


Blessed be!
