Color Astrology Is a Simple Way to Manifest Positivity Into Your Life — Here’s How It Works

If you’re even the slightest bit intrigued by astrology, you know there’s a lot more to it than just star signs, Mercury retrograde and full Moons. It expands into Duplicates (fire, water, earth and air), Moon and Rising Signs, and Modalities (Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable). By delving into each one of these layers, you’re able to find out more about yourself — how you express your energy, react to circumstances, navigate through life, what the future holds for you, your compatibility with others and so forth.

Now, another element to add to your list that can help bring you closer to fulfilment is colour astrology.

What is colour astrology?

Colour astrology is a personalised way to work with chromotherapy (also known as colour therapy) with the latter referring to the pseudoscience that uses colours to adjust body vibrations to frequencies, which result in health and harmony.

When a colour astrologer looks at someone’s birth chart, they determine which colours and their meanings a person may work with to heal, progress into their life’s purpose and navigate through challenges.

It’s nothing new, though — the practice has long being a component of Vedic astrology, which originates from India. According to Vedic astrology, colours are assigned to the navgrahas (nine planets) in the horoscope, which are said to govern the entire life of an individual from birth till death and beyond. These planets are also reflectors of rays of different hues, and each zodiac sign is ruled by a different planet. This means each zodiac sign has its own lucky colour and ratna (gemstone) as well as unfavourable colours. The appropriate use of colours in accordance with the planets increases the aura of an individual, enhancing its power and purpose.

The question is, how do you know what colours will benefit you? There is no one specific meaning associated with each hue in colour therapy. Instead, an astrologist can evaluate your meaning by looking at your natal birth chart and all the different planetary placements. But generally speaking, in Vedic astrology, it can be broken down into both days of the week and zodiac signs.
