The candles used in BM ritual represent the light of Lucifer—the bearer of light, enlightenment, the living flame, burning desire, and the Flames of the Pit.
Only black and white candles are to be used. And Red if your spell calls for it.
Never use more than one white candle; but as many black candles as are required to illuminate the ritual chamber may be used.
At least one black candle is placed to the left of the altar, representing the Powers of Darkness and the left‐hand path.
Other black candles are placed where needed for illumination.
One white candle is placed to the right of the altar, representing the hypocrisy of white light “magicians” and the followers of the right‐hand path.
Black candles are used for power and success for the participants of the ritual, and are used to consume the parchments on which blessings requested by the ritual participants are written.
The white candle is used for destruction of enemies.
Parchments upon which curses are written are burned in the flame of the white candle.
