Symbol of rebirth, cleansing, curses, love, and goodness.

Skulls are employed in various voodoo rituals. They are employed as a sign for rebirth in traditional healing dances. Illness is regarded as a curse. The healing dances assist the n’um in traveling from the stomach to the skull, where it explodes. The skull denotes a person’s rebirth into health. Invoke voodoo gods and goddesses using candles shaped like skulls. The color of the skull influences the ceremonies and gods or goddesses that people desire to invoke. The red candle is utilized for romance or love troubles, the white candle for protection and spiritual cleansing, and the black candle for curse rituals. The skull and bones are considered good spirits in New Orleans.
