You can obtain this information from practically any book on magic or Wicca. Just bear in mind that different magical traditions may have slightly different associations for the colors. The best advice I can give to you in choosing a color for candles is this:
First of all, if you don't have the proper color called for in a spell, use white. White represents the entire spectrum of light, and therefore, contains every color of the rainbow.
Secondly, if a spell says use red, but your intuition tells you blue, then by all means, follow your own intuition and use blue. Your intuition is your direct connection to the Divine and it will never lead you astray.
And now, on to the most common colors and what they represent.
