Moving candle spells use two symbolic candles, one for each partner in a romantic relationship (or a relationship that needs to be brought back together). Each candle is etched with the name of the person it represents and any other pertinent information about that individual (birthdate, personal information, sign of the zodiac, and more.) Placed at opposite ends of a rectangle area, the candles are doused with oils of love or reconciliation, and their bases are encircled by herbs and flowers. After being lighted, the candles are gently brought together, a little at a time, until they are face-to-face.
The symbolism behind moving the candles deals with magnetism, magically speaking. It is the act of bringing two people closer and closer together.
