Dark green is associated with ambition, greed, and jealousy.
Yellow-green can indicate sickness, cowardice, discord, and jealousy.
Aqua is associated with emotional healing and protection.
Olive green is the traditional color of peace.
I'd also put a bright, strong green down to mean thought, as in someone is thinking about something, mainly numerical. Is it just me who'd say that, or is anyone else with me on this one?
The stuff on that site seems pretty damn good. I've been told stuff about colours in the past (symbolism, etc.) and it seems that this site seems to say the same stuff, and most of it seems to be true most of the time. Hopefully it'll be a good reference for when I forget or just don't know, which on some days can be an oh so very common occurance.

Thanks asoir. I don't think I'd seen that one before, although it's a bit reminiscent of this one:
I've been putting together my own list of colour links for my workshops. It's not finished yet, but you might find it useful too:
For what its worth, I'm skeptical of attempts to tie colours down to any definite and absolute meanings. Colours can gain associations, emotional and otherwise, in a large number of ways. There is no reason why these associations should be consistent, and in fact they often aren't. Just look at the variety of different associations of the colour red in different cultures for example:
