Lunar Pairing candles may be burned for moon magick during two lunar cycles each year. Work both sides of the zodiacal Wheel of the Year, for Water/Earth mysteries, and the Pisces/Virgo axis between emotional beliefs and material analysis.
Watch the video of Heron creating these candles on her YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqZ_Rl4RmIs
Light half of the year: (approx. Feb 21-Mar 21) Burn during the watery, mutable winter lunation while the sun crosses Pisces. The dark moon (conjunct) will ebb in Pisces, and the full “Storm Moon” (opposition) will peak in earthy Virgo.
Dark half of the year: (approx. Aug 21-Sept 21) Burn again during the earthy, mutable summer lunation while the sun crosses Virgo. The dark moon (conjunct) will ebb in Virgo and full “Harvest Moon” (opposition) will peak in Pisces.
Spell intentions: Great for magick of intuition, psychism, individuality, empathy, unification, compassion, belief, judgement, alchemy, purity, discernment, healing, analysis.
Art by Heron Michelle
Each candle is loaded and anointed during the auspicious time with Heron's formulary blends of elemental Water and planetary Neptune/Jupiter (Pisces), elemental Earth and planetary Mercury (Virgo), and planetary Moon. Each contains the stones, plants, resins, and essential oils that are magickally potent for Pisces/Virgo. Vegetable-based dye in blue and green added for visual effect. Formulary recipes may be found in Heron's book: "Elemental Witchcraft: A Guide to Living a Magickal Life Through the Elements" also available at TheSojo.com.

Compassion’s fruits, shared as a boon!
So Mote it be!
