Readers Question | Why Did the Candle Glass Crack?

Hi Jacqueline,

It is me again my second question is that I started burning st jude pink candles since December 2009. Last week, I lit up one and it was burning good and I noticed that 1/2 of the glass was cracked.

Can you please explain to me why the glass crack from top and stop on the way?



When you say ‘crack from the top and stop on the way’, I can only imagine that you mean that it did not appear when you began the candle spell but after and it stopped only half way down the side of the glass, leaving part of it intact.

So, let’s work on the physical side – assuming there was not a hairline crack or chip in the candle, then we can say the candle was whole when candle spell started. Sometimes, when the manufacturer pours the liquid wax, and if they do not have a taut wick, the wick will “float” over to one side of the candle and up against the glass. Then when the flame has sufficiently heated up the side ofthe glass, it cracks or breaks completely off – a FIRE HAZARD – and the reason I always, always, ALWAYS say to place candle in cereal bowl, aluminum pie pan or small sandwich saucer for protection. You did not say that the sides of the candle glass was sooty or ‘blackened’, so I am going to assume that this is not the case.

Sometimes, there is a bubble or other glass manufacturing error that can be taken into consideration in this matter.

Now for the spiritual side. Candles that crack are breaking a situation – whether good or for bad. A St. Jude candle, of which you are burning for love because of the color pink – is a sign that something is ‘busting forth’ or about the change because of its’ cracking. Either the ‘thing’ that was holding you back from love has been removed or that you have made a ‘breakthrough’ in your journey for a love. I would suggest that you continue to burn pink St. Jude candles until your love comes into view.

Keep us posted on the outcome!

    I am burning a saint Deshacedor candle, this is the 3rd one now, and the glass cracked but the candle is still burning and the jar is clear, is there a meaning for this, i am burning this candle because me and my husband seperated and i was told that the mistress had put a spell on him with Santa marta so i was told to burn the Saint Deshacedor candle in my home and now this happened and so many people have told me that this is good, that it shows that whatever his mistress was doing to him has broken now that my candle has cracked and he will leave her and return to this true..? please help…

    I am not familiar with St. Deshacedor and this may be a Latin saint that is obscure and not well known around the world. I would first go back to where you purchased the candle and ask that person in the botanica what happened, especially since it sounds like you have already had some sort of consultation (because you were told about the Santa Marta spell). I like people to return to the place they first got a consultation and made purchases, because what someone does or says may be regional or of a certain culture, and I don’t want to mislead you. So, it is best to go back to the botanica to ask them what happened. If they are ethical, they will be happy to talk with you without charging money, however, you might have to have one more reading from them to get answers. Good Luck!
