Which way should my prop turn?

HI, I just purchased a MPJet brushless motor and a CC Phoenix 25 ESC. Since the leads from the motor are not color coded, Im not sure the correct way to connect the leads to the ESC. I can get it to work, but obviously one way it turns clockwise, and the other it turns counter-clockwise (when looking at the plane from the front.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks,
K.

If your running a APC prop, looking at the plane from the front (coming at you), it would be counter-clockwise.

So the wind blows towards the back of the plane .

Yes as William said counterclockwise for 'normal' props, looking from the front
