Black is one of the most useful and powerful colors to use in spell-work. It is a powerful grounding color and aids focus. It is highly protective and useful in workings that include banishing, separating, binding, and increasing personal confidence and power. As it is highly absorbent, both of light and power, black is particularly useful in drawing spells.
Black is not a true color, it is both an absence of color and light, and at the same time, it is all colors together, without light. One of its most powerful uses is in absorbing negativity. Black is also the color of the new moon with its attendant energies of anticipation and cycles ending and beginning.
