In any form of magick, the "light" side is known as the use of positive energy and the "dark" side is known as the use of negative energy. So, if you mainly focus on using or manifesting negative energy (or going against one's free will) that is "dark". In reality it's morally wrong.

a dark side to wicca...interesting question. When most folks talk about the dark side or black magic they mean spells, curses, and magics that harm others. If one were truely a wiccan and followed the rede, with its harm none rule then I would say the answer would be no. Unfortunately as with all paths of belief there are more who claim the faith than those who live it, so perhaps that would be the dark side?

The darkest a neopagan Wiccan could get is honoring the Crone. Personally, I feel most modern Wiccans are unbalanced (focus only on the lightest side of life), and are basically witches with Christian morals and values and an odd Celtic based view on paganism. Now mind you! I said "neopagan" "most" and "modern". Those who truly delve into the old traditional path are not like that at all. If you want a more balanced. "Wicca" look into "tradition Witchcraft". Its much different from Wiccan but historically more accurate to the "old religion". It won't be easy to find out. Most traditional witchcraft info you'll find will be from those who have had it passed down in their families generations upon generations. There are a few books and websites out there but they are few and vague.

There is no specific colour to magick, though people have associated Money Magick with Green, White Magick with (White), and Dark/Black Magick with Black. Though they may have associated the colours with these specific category of spell, that does not mean that is it bad/ or good. White magick is referred to as "Good Magick" though white magick can also be harmful/ even deadly. As well as Black magick is referred to as "Bad Magick" though it can be used for hurting something/someone, it can also be used for good, pure, wholesome purposes.
