We created this collection of hand-made candles based on the 22 cards of the Major Arcana of the Tarot deck (Latin arcānus – mystery). These 22 cards can be interpreted as a person’s spiritual path from birth to perfection.
The candle marked with number 18 of the Major Arcana – The Moon. When the Sun sets and the Moon rises, the secret and unfamiliar nocturnal world is revealed together with our hidden passions, desires, expectations and character traits, which during the day we hide even from ourselves. Our true face, our real “me” emerge only when no one sees us. Only then we truly become ourselves. Sometimes it might seem like a sudden change, but it simply is the release of our deeply hidden essence. The Moon also symbolizes illusions, false hopes, fears and depressive thoughts. When the Sun is away, the whole world looks mysterious and unfamiliar, therefore it might seem to be frightening or even hostile. However, it is not the nocturnal world that is hostile towards us – we ourselves created fears in our minds.
Included with this candle you will find one of the 22 Major Arcana cards, which, in combination with The Moon, may suggest how and at what level the archetype of The Moon manifests itself in your life. Suggested affirmations and the magical water lily, fig, white musk, opium, sandalwood fragrance may help you to release your deeply hidden essence.

||We pour our candles exlusively from natural soy wax that does not emit toxic chemical compounds when burning; burns three times as long as ordinary candles; does not leave any stains, the spills are easy to clean;does not get hot, as it burns in lower temperature than paraffin, therefore the aroma of the candle emanates slowly and unchanged; certified by OU Kosher agency as kosher.We never use any other natural waxes (e.g. palm wax), because we want to create a truly nature-friendly product that would help to preserve natural resources and would not harm the user in any way.
||Estimated candle burning time 60 hours. All our scented candles are hand crafted, each of them is unique, therefore their weight and burning duration may differ. During the making of the candle, soy wax is melted in very low temperature, and then, as the wax starts cooling down, the mixture of aromatic oils is added, thus keeping the unique aroma unchanged. Our candles is made in two stages: when the first layer of wax cools down completely, comes the second layer. This allows to avoid air bubbles in the candle, its surface becomes ideally smooth, and the candle’s burning duration becomes even longer.
||This candle has a cotton wick and is molded into a handmade porcelain container. Each container is unique, no two are the same. After burning the candle, wipe the jar with hot water so that you can reset it for a new life and use it at your home. Our candle jars are made of food-grade porcelain (SGS and FDA certificates).
