Aries/Libra Lunar Pairing Candle by Heron Michelle
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 fire/air mysteries, and the Aries/Libra axis of relationships between the Self and others.

Light half of the year: (approx. March 21-April 21) Burn during the fiery, cardinal spring lunation while the sun crosses Aries. The dark moon (conjunct) will ebb in Aries, and the full moon (opposition) will peak in airy Libra.
Dark half of the year: (approx. September 21-October 21) Burn again during the airy, cardinal autumn lunation while the sun crosses Libra. The dark moon (conjunct) will ebb in Libra and full moon (opposition) will peak in Aries.
Spell intentions: Great for magick of bold new beginnings, taking action, self-discovery, finding the beauty in interrelationships, setting and defending boundaries, achieving karmic justice and re-balancing.
Art by Heron Michelle
Each candle is loaded and anointed during the auspicious time with Heron's formulary blends of elemental Fire and planetary Mars (Aries), elemental Air and planetary Venus (Libra), and planetary Moon. Each contains the stones, plants, resins, and essential oils that are magickally potent for Aries/Libra. Vegetable-based dye in red and yellow 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."
Charm of Making
(Repeat the appropriate stanza upon lighting the candle, continuing the magickal charge.)
Sun in Aries, Mars commands
Cardinal swings to Spring’s demands.
Dark Aries Moon, Full Libra Wind
Spark of Self, Justice defend.
So Mote it be!
Sun in Libra, Venus reigns
Cardinal sings of Autumn’s pains.
Full Aries Blood, Dark Libra Moon
Balanced in beauty, with others commune.
So Mote it be!
