The following is a quite comprehensive list of candle colors and their correspondence. If you are a beginner, this will make a good guide for you. However, remember that these meanings are according to the authors of the books consulted though. These can vary between individuals. Therefore, I suggest you that you experiment on your own. Take one color at the time, look at it, and write down on your Book of Shadows what that color means to you. In this way, you will develop your own candle color correspondence.  From: http://www.workingwitch.com/candles/candle2.html and “The Craft” by Dorothy Morrison.
