Juno has numerous correspondences, many of which are complex and varied, just as she is. Considered a Goddess of Light, she is an initiator, a beginning and an end of cycles, illuminating security and wealth or prosperity. However, what may be the most exciting is that she is also the vitality that creates the wealth of humanity that comes through connectedness. It is collective wealth. As we create the Black Sacred Candle to call her in, we are using these energetic principles as sympathetic magic to build our own wealth through the liminal spaces that birth sovereign relationships.

Supplies & Ingredients
- Lily Flower
- 5 Coins
- Personal Power Oil or Olive Oil
- Aluminum Foil
- Parchment Paper
- Candle Holder
- Take a piece of aluminum foil (large enough to wrap your candle in) and place it on your workspace.
- Take a piece of non-stick parchment paper (about the same size as your aluminum foil) and place it on top of the aluminum foil. Trick: Fold the edges of the aluminum foil over the top of the edges of the parchment paper to keep it from rolling!
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
- On your parchment paper, lay 5 coins in a star pattern and put a bit of your oil in the middle of the 5 coins.
- One by one, pick up each coin and put an edge of it in the oil and roll it back to its initial position.
- Go back to your candle and place your candle on top of the parchment paper in between the coins.
- Grab your Olive oil (or personal power oil) and anoint your candle with your chosen oil.
- Grab your Lily and coat the candle via the stamens. Just brush them against the candle.
- Coat the candle in Myrrh powder or resin pieces.
- Remove a few petals of the Lily and place against the candle. Right before you wrap it, tap each coin to the petals and set them aside. Now wrap the candle with the petals against the candle as tightly as possible (the petals will not stay, but the act of heating the petals against the candle captures the essence we are looking for).
- Place the wrapped candle in the oven.
- DO NOT LEAVE THE KITCHEN (lesson learned the hard way), turn your candle every 2 minutes (this took me about 12 minutes total).
- Pour salt into your candle holder, place 3 coins and 3 petals in the holder.
- Once your candle is heated and slightly mushy, remove from the oven. Carefully open the foil, the petals will easily fall away. Take the remaining 2 coins and push them into the candle.
- Nestle your completed Black Sacred Candle within the candle holder and light it, calling to Juno.
Caution: Please make sure there are no large chunks of plant material as these can be dangerous or ‘pop’ during candle burning. As always, please abide by all fire safety rules.
Enjoy your magic this month with Juno by lighting your candle a few minutes each day!
