Merry Meet Seeker,
Candles are wonderful in spells because they represent Fire energy. However, our personal energy is much more powerful that any of the other energies we use as aids. So you can certainly use any candle for your spell.
At times, we may designate a candle color for certain purposes. For examples, money spells
usually use green candles and romance candles are usually pink. Marriage candles are usually red and candles for peace and healing are usually white, blue or purple.

If you do not have a specific candle to work on a spell, you can just label it as that color. You could just hold the candle in your hands and say “This candle is WHITE” or something like that. Your powers are much more important. If you feel that you really need a green candle to get that result, go ahead and get a green candle because your thoughts may be a deterrent to the results. Our thoughts are what pushes our intentions into the Universe and if our thoughts are in conflict, the expected result may elude you.

According to tradition, these are the candle colors that are used for specific spells but remember that in different traditions, these colors are not consistent:
Black candles are used specifically to remove negativity. It is also used for binding, protection and shape shifting. Silver candles are used to represent the
Goddess Herself. They also invite female energy, astral energy and aid in increasing our powers of telepathy, clairvoyance and intuition.
White candles signify peace and purity. They may also represent the Goddess. It is sometimes used to symbolize the Higher Self and also purity in the form of virginity

Brown candles are used to invite special favors and also to sway friendships. They are also used to represent the Earth and sometimes to repel evil sources of energy.

Purple candles on the other hand are used for higher spiritual purposes such as the opening of the third eye, to increase psychic ability, to unearth hidden knowledge and to increase spiritual power. It also helps in influencing important and powerful people in our community. Blue is usually used to represent the element Water. It is also connected to the acceptance of wisdom, healing, peace, protection, calmness, good fortune, spiritual inspiration and also as a catalyst to spiritual inspiration.

Green of course, represents the element Earth, Nature and all of its magnificence. It is a catalyst for physical and mental healing and can bring financial windfalls and growth in personal areas. Green also represents Mother Earth with Her expertise in tree and plant magick.

The color pink is associated with gentle and innocent affection or romance. Also, it is a caring, nurturing color that enables us to increase good will on this planet. Red, on the other hand, is the element of Fire which represents passion, strength, lust, driving force, survival instincts, etc. It is indeed a
symbol of fiery passion.

Orange candles are also used for general success and legal matters. It also comes into play in Justice or property deals and sales.

Gold colored candles are used to represent God and to celebrate the power of Males. It also signified happiness and winning. However, yellow colored candles imply intelligence, memory, imagination. Gold is also the color of the Sun, the one that gives us sustenance and life.

Brightest Blessings.
