You should research/study before casting. I have been researching for almost a year now and have still yet to cast my first spell. Im thinking of starting with candle magick. But still not sure. I understand you just want to get straight to casting but there are many things of interest that you can do while you do your research into the art of casting. Such as Divinination, Tarot,Runes, Dream interpretation, Meditation and so on.
I have heard of many times people going to cast right away and it not working or back firing and you don't want that. I wish you good luck! and much positivity on your journey !
If you want I can give you some free books online to read before bed as well as a site with an epic library of so many books that are free that will make you cry with joy. If you are interested that is.
So if you are , Message me and I will share these with you.
To me magick is a journey. You got to understand what it does for you and those around you. If you can't get the hang of it study a bit more and ask yourself what you want magic to do for you. I am studying candle magic for a while now, and just started doing protecting prayers and cleansing prayers. Magick changes not only your faith but it has a ripple effect on the world. As a student of light workers I believe you should rather pray for others so that the universe can bless you. Keep it simple, realistic and keep studying. My mentor practices for twenty seven years and still study. I hope this helps you.

Well, if you're serious about learning how to do magic and with starting from the rock-bottom then you don't start out by casting spells, you start out by learning how and why magic works.
You see, there is no such thing as an "easy" spell or a "beginner" spell. One either understands how magic works and has mastered the basics...in which case the magic will work..or you haven't done that sort of work..and no spell will work no matter how "easy" it seems.
Casting a successful spell involves much more than finding some spell on the internet or in a book, saying some words, lighting a candle, waving a wand of any of that sort of thing. In order for magic to work you need to understand how and why it works in the first place. Grounding and centering, visualization, focus and intent, energy manipulation, etc are all necessary first steps to even begin to have a chance at a spell actually working...and more importantly to prevent a spell from back-firing on you.
So, my advice for anyone who is truly serious is to start by reading a few books and practicing the exercises those books will give you. Once you have mastered the basics you won't need anyone to give you spells, you'll be able to create your own spells that will be far more effective than anything you find on the net. Here's the books I suggest:
"Before You Cast a Spell" by Carl McColman
"Spells and How They Work" by Janet and Stewart Farrar
