Can I blow the candle after the magic is finished its ritual?
Or I have to leave it burn out?

Don't blow it out
Blowing out signifies that you're blowing your wish away.

You can snuff it out with a snuffer, you can wet your index finger and your thumb and pinch off the flame.

Anyone, correct me if I'm wrong as I'm not an expert :)

Thank you

So you mean I can snuff it with few drops of water or leave it out?

In my opinion, it's best to let the candle burn out completely. If you do have to leave somewhere, you can snuff your candle out.

Oh, a decent question, now this makes my day.

It really depends on how you're working, are you doing a candle spell or are the candles an ingredient in a much larger working? Are you Cursing, Protecting, Healing, Attracting?

I like to think of it like blowing a kiss, you're sending an intent out there, a focused gesture in the direction of your intended. I'm going to list a bunch of methods for handling candles and my personal interpretations on it.

Snuffing out , I see it as dropping the mic, covering it, smothering it having the 'final say' and pronouncing that it is the end of that. Or perhaps as a symbol of 'binding'

Water , depends on how much water, a little bit is for a slight 'refresh' and 'revitalize' a large deluge? Destroying or agressively banishing something.

Burning Out , only time I use this is if I want to keep the wax which will be infused with my intent, as a small charm to be added to a spell bag, or just kept like a magnet in my purse.

Blowing out , as I mentioned above, like blowing a kiss, or, a form of the 'evil eye' or pushing away, perhaps ending something, a direct, quick gesture.

Burn out fully, or burn for a little while?

You can reuse your candles, despite what people say, just remember to cleanse them or have certain candles for specific works, so like a big thick blue candle for Healing Magic, that you would light and pray over.
The only time I wouldn't reuse a candle for a different work is if I have inscribed names, sigils etc on it - because then it becomes bound to that intent or person - such as a white candle I have has names, sentences and sigils all over it, which I light if I need to give that someone a little more help.

You could blow out candle for this, and imagine it blowing away all the gossip, or you could give it a good douse of water as mentioned above.
Also, I would suggest using a black candle for banishing. :)

hello!

if you blow it out, it will interfere with the energy you've put onto the candle. i suggest letting it burn down, or snuff it with a tea cup, you can even do it with your fingers. but do not blow it out.

This is basic stuff, good to know!
