There are other lists of colours and meanings. Magical correspondences are in essence a language of symbols used to speak to your subconscious and communicate with the universe. This is why you will see different correspondences not only for colours but for directions and elements.
One example is green symbolizing money, this would be an easy correspondance to make in America where the money is green but not in Australia where the money is lots of different colours use which one feels right to you.
Once you have desided which colour to best use for your spell. Rub the candle with the oil while imagining the sercomstance you wish to creat. An apropreate entitiy may then be invoked to aid you in your work. Once this has been done light the candle on the alter. The candle can also be marked with signs with a neeble.
