All of the colors of pins in a voodoo doll stand for something. There are seven colors of pins used for voodoo dolls, which are yellow for success or money, white for positivism, pink for death, red for power, purple for spirituality, green for peacefulness, blue for love and black for repelling negative energy.

Voodoo dolls are also used with candles, and it is important to match the color of the candle to the color of the pin and symbolism the user wishes to empower. When using voodoo dolls, one prays to the “Loa,” and it recognizes what the user wants through the colors used.
