Moving candle spells use two figural candles, one each to represent the two parties involved in a love relationship (or a relationship that needs to be brought together, or back together.) Each candle is carved with the name of the person it represents along with any other information that focuses on that person (birthdate, personal information, sign of the zodiac, and more.) They are placed at two ends of a rectangular space and the candles are anointed with love or reconciliation oils then their feet surrounded by herbs and flowers. After lit, the candles are slowly moved together until they finally reach each other face-to-face.
From there they are allowed to burn until they melt together, forming one pool of solid wax. A seven day candle is burned behind them during the entire process and for 5 to 6 days after the two have joined.
