The dream interpretation of three burning candles can be good or bad. If it brings good news, it can signify a big event like a wedding. If it brings bad news, it can portend a tragedy like a death.
If you see a candle that has burned down to its wick, it signifies hard times. To be forced to use a candle until the very last drop of wax means one is hard of resources. One has to be thrifty and use a precious resource right down to the very last drop.
To dream of lighting a candle means to see hardship coming soon. A candle is a symbol of hope and comfort. To light a candle means it is done in anticipation of difficult times ahead.
