Types of magic

According to the Royal Academy of the Spanish Language, “magic” can be defined as that act, characterized by an action or word, which is intended through the use or invocation of supernatural beings to change the regular course of natural events or laws. This time we will introduce you to the different types of magic, which experts in this type of hidden arts identify.


White Magic

It is the kind of magic, which, according to the specialists, creates a special bond with the gods and benign deities. She is focused on seeking the healing and harmony of living beings and nature. At no time can it be used for personal gain or to obtain something that responds only to the wishes of the magician who employs it. Likewise, white magic cannot be used against anyone, for its very nature prevents it from inflicting some kind of damage.

Black Magic

Diametrically opposed to white magic, black magic exists with the sole purpose of causing harm to others, as well as to manipulate and transform circumstances only in favor of the one who tips the spell.


It is a rather dangerous type of magic, for although it may cause short-term benefits, it is not exempt from the law of cause and effect, which according to the followers of this type of belief causes everything that comes out of us to return to us multiplied by three multiplied by three, so the magician who makes use of this type of magic is sooner or later exposed to paying for the evil he has caused.

Red Magic

Its name responds to the link that this type of magic has to the use of living tissues or blood, for the celebration of its rites or spells. It is strongly linked to black magic, and in fact there are those who claim to derive from it.

However, if the blood used is the magician’s own, the spell can then be considered tied to white magic. In these kinds of rituals, those involved offer animal sacrifices, in order to achieve certain objectives. An example of this type of magic may be the Santeria, which makes use of animal sacrifices within its rituals.

Green magic

It is the type of magic that is characterized by making use of herbs and flowers, hence its name of green magic. It can be related to both white magic and black magic, according to the end that it has the spell, for if it has been elaborated in order to heal and provide peace it will belong to the white magic, while if it has been used only to generate some damage , then green magic has been used by black magic, to achieve its goals.

Denial connectors

It is the type of magic that makes use of rituals, focused on seeking greater luck and well-being in the person to which the spell is directed. The ultimate goal of this magic is to achieve greater economic, labor or material benefits. Hence it is called yellow, referring to the color of gold.

Elemental magic

It is the magic that makes use of the elements (earth, fire, air and water) found both within the individual and nature, in order to focus the energies towards healing and harmonization of beings. Linked to white magic, it serves to perform healings and protections against spells from black or red magic, and even from green and yellow magic.

Divinatory Magic

According to experts in esotericism, this type of magic consists in the implementation of divinatory methods such as cartomancia, reading snails, crystal ball, pendulum, hand, among other handles, used by the magician to be able to clarify the consultant’s past, present or future, in order to provide greater guidance in the decisions he or she is about to make.

Jewelry Magic

In this branch of magic, magicians focus on the elaboration of charms, amulets, bracelets, rings, or other elements that the applicant or himself can carry as protection against other types of magic, especially black magic, that can pursue harming him or manipulating his true desires in order to profit from him.

Projection Magic

It’s a pretty old kind of magic. According to the specialists, this branch of magic specializes in the power to precipitate matter out of nothing. That is, create matter and shape it, in order to materialize or make animals, people, objects or elements of nature appear.

The magician performing this type of spell is supposed to be a very powerful magician. However, care must be taken, for almost always this type of power, according to the scholars of esotericism, is linked to black magic.

Body magic

This part or branch of magic is characterized by the cultivation of the body strength and resistance of the magician. These are usually trained in the art of enduring large amounts of pain. Some experts claim that through discipline and power such wizards get to have the skin as hard as a rock, as well as they can acquire great skills such as strength or speed. However, it has its limitations, since the effects of its power can only transmit them to their bodies, and not to other objects.
