Editor’s Note | Higher Journeys

When we think of color, our minds often gravitate towards its aesthetic appeal and the diverse ways different colors can evoke sensations ranging from tranquility to unease, driven by various factors.

In the field of psychology, the exploration of how color influences human personality and behavior has been studied in-depth since the early 20th century.

But there is also a long history of associating colors with specific zodiac signs. Astrology, which has been practiced for thousands of years, often links colors to the different signs of the zodiac based on various interpretations of the characteristics and attributes associated with each sign. These associations can vary depending on cultural and astrological traditions.

In this article by Redfin, a leading real estate company based in Seattle WA, they explain how incorporating a tapestry of color in your home according to traits associated with your zodiac sign can bring a sense of balance and resonance to your beloved residence while giving a nod to the mystical and enchanting principles governing our cosmos.

Aries: March 21 – April 19

Pinks, reds, and light greens

Aries individuals are dynamic and assertive, driven by their passion and determination to conquer challenges. Their fiery personality resonates with bold and vibrant colors, symbolizing their energy, courage, and leadership qualities.

“Embrace the energetic spirit of Aries with vibrant hues like ‘Pleasant Pink’ by Benjamin Moore in your space,” recommends paint company Benjamin Moore Thailand.

“Vedic astrology emphasizes ‘Rashi’ or moon sign as your true nature. Aries moon signs should go for red-tone paints in your houses and offices to resonate with the vibrancy of your basic radiant nature. Red ensures boundless energy levels,” adds online astrology consultant StarsTell.

“Aries are naturally drawn to rich jewel tones for their wall colors. That fiery spirit needs some balance, so SW Jericho Jade is the perfect bedroom wall color,” shares photographer Caitlyn Nicole.

Taurus: April 20 – May 20

Warm browns, beige, greens, and mulberry

Taurus individuals are known for their grounded and practical nature, often embodying stability and reliability in their personality. Earthy tones reflect their connection to nature, showcasing their nurturing disposition and steadfast approach to life’s endeavors.

Apothecary Anima Mundi Herbals says, “Taurus individuals may find comfort and grounding in earthy tones like warm browns or soft beige, fostering a sense of stability and security in their environment.”

“Taurus is the most sensual sign. It represents money and growth, so greens of all kinds tend to be chosen most often. However, Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, rules the sign of Taurus. Venus wouldn’t be opposed to adding a luscious mulberry rose to your decor to enliven all your senses,” states Patricia Selmo of Cosmic Energy Coaching.

Gemini: May 21 – June 20

Yellows and plums

Gemini individuals are characterized by their curious and adaptable nature, often displaying versatility and quick wit in their interactions. Colors like yellow resonate with their lively personality.

“For Gemini, a lively and versatile air sign, ‘Sunshine Yellow’ offers a burst of energy and creativity, making it an excellent choice for a home office or living area where ideas flow freely, shares resume writing service Resume By Nico. “Alternatively, Scorpio’s intensity and passion are perfectly captured by ‘Midnight Plum,’ a deep, rich hue that creates a sense of mystery and sophistication, ideal for a Scorpio’s study or personal sanctuary, where focus and contemplation are key.”

“With summer just around the corner, lively Gemini brims with energy and new ideas. Sunny yellows brighten rooms and moods alike,” remarks the collective Heart Body and Soul Center.

Cancer: June 21 – July 22

White and silver

Cancer individuals are deeply empathetic and nurturing, often displaying a strong emotional intuition and a profound connection to their loved ones. Soft and soothing colors like silver and white reflect their gentle and caring personality.

“The perfect color for cancer is white, symbolizing purity and comfort and aligning well with Cancer’s nurturing and protective nature,” says astrologist All Things Vedic. “This makes the environment calm and peaceful, providing a space to renew and recharge for the next day. It can brighten any living space and counterbalance any mood swings with an uplifting and positive vibe. Whites also offer the flexibility to blend eclectic tastes into your decor seamlessly.”

Leo: July 23 – August 22

Reds, golds, yellows, and pinks 

Leo individuals are charismatic and confident, exuding a natural magnetism and a flair for the dramatic. Vibrant and regal colors resonate with their bold personality.

“Leo – bright and sunny personalities with bold emotions and passions. So stick with reds, golds, and bright pinks,” suggests author  Winnifred Tataw of Win’s Books.

“Leo’s surroundings need to be cloaked in colors that reflect their regal stature and sense of fun. Fiery colors like red, orange, yellow, and gold are Leo’s natural palette, highlighting this fire sign’s exuberance and flair for the dramatic,” states astrologer Nancy Massing.

Virgo: August 23 – September 22

Earth tones – blues and grays

Virgo individuals are known for their practicality, attention to detail, and analytical mindset, often displaying a methodical approach to life’s challenges. Subtle and earthy colors reflect their grounded personality.

Alexis Brooks, Editor of Conscious Lifestyle and Spirituality Blog Higher Journeys, says, “The sign of Virgo is one that I’ve found stays fairly true to form when it comes to color association. Virgo is often linked to earth tones and muted colors reflecting practicality, organization, and attention to detail – all of which are hallmark traits of this fastidious earth sign.”

“Virgos need clean and crisp colors to match their personalities.  Being an earth sign, go for a rich sage green like Farrow and Ball’s Blue Gray, or try their Stiffly Blue, which has a feminine softness much like a Virgo, remarks astrologer and writer Leslie McGuirk.

Libra: September 23 – October 22

Peach and pink

Libra individuals are renowned for their diplomacy, charm, and sense of balance, often seeking harmony in their relationships and surroundings. Soft and harmonious colors resonate with their graceful personality.

“Pantone’s color of the year, Peach Fuzz, is perfect to bring into your home as a Libra,” shares astrology website Astrology Hub. “It will help you stay on trend and bring a soft, harmonizing vibe to any room in your home. If you’re not up for a peachy wall, this is a great accent pillow and throw color to add to your mix so you can easily change it up next year.”

“Libra is a bejeweled sign that appreciates beauty and balance. Ruled by Venus, fuchsia pink realigns Libra to their spirited and social nature, so they express the airy and passionate advocates that they are,” adds spiritual empowerer The Valkyrie Mystic.

Scorpio: October 23 – November 21

Rich shades – teals, burgundy, midnight blue

Scorpio individuals are intense, passionate, and fiercely determined, often embodying a magnetic and enigmatic presence. Deep and mysterious colors reflect their complex personality.

Summer camp blog Happy Camper Live says, “A deep teal is an exceptional choice for a Scorpio. This color combines Scorpio’s characteristic depth and intensity with the refreshing, rejuvenating qualities of the natural world. Deep teal embodies the mystery and resilience of Scorpio while also echoing the calming influence of water and the outdoors.”

“Scorpios love color. The deeper, richer shades excite. Think burgundy, midnight blue, forest, or gold. A bold palette is key whether in wall color or decorative interiors,” states Craig of Sage of Stars.

Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21

Purple and red 

Sagittarius individuals are adventurous, optimistic, and free-spirited, often driven by a thirst for knowledge and new experiences. Bright and expansive colors resonate with their adventurous side.

“Sagittarius will exude confidence in luxury red, orange, and gold hues,” remarks psychic Nirvana Light.

“Sagittarius is a fire sign, ruled by Jupiter,” states My Astro. “Sagittarians like to see the big picture and to travel. They tend to be optimistic and outgoing. Purple shows their interest in spiritual matters and conveys wisdom. Deep blue reflects the strong connection to deeper states of awareness that Sagittarians seek. Colors that convey a positive and adventurous spirit are what a Sagittarian would enjoy.”

Capricorn: December 22 – January 19

Dark colors: Grey, greens, and blacks

Capricorn individuals are ambitious, disciplined, and pragmatic, often displaying a strong sense of responsibility and determination in pursuing their goals. Classic and sophisticated colors showcase their ability to be grounded.

Dark blue, grey, forest green, and black are your choices if you wish to enhance Saturn’s stabilizing influence on the disciplined and determined Capricorn,” says PowerFortunes.com. “These colors convey strength and resilience.”

“Earthy Capricorn is a muted sign that is prone to melancholy, steadfast, stubbornness, and hardworking. They like the immovable Charcoal Black #36454F. This time of the year can be dark, which is why Capricorns have an affinity for Olive Grey #847A66 to drop in their martini. Finally, to cheer up the dour mood, a Capricorn would pick Skeptic #A5BCAB because nothing makes a Capricorn happier than doubting someone else,” shares astrologist Heart Astrology.

Aquarius: January 20 – February 18

Jewel tones 

“Aquarius individuals are progressive, inventive, and humanitarian, often driven by a strong sense of idealism and a desire for positive change in the world,” notes Business Astrologer Kathryn Hocking. “Electric and unconventional colors resonate with their innovative traits.

To keep you feeling inspired, feature walls and colors in your home that are bright, bold, and perhaps a little quirky, like a firetruck red and jewel tone sapphire blue and emerald green.”

Pisces: February 19 – March 20

Dreamy greens or lavenders 

Pisces individuals are compassionate, intuitive, and imaginative, often embodying empathy and sensitivity towards others. Dreamy and ethereal colors reflect their gentle personality.

“As we are in the Pisces season, let’s look at the paint color they would choose for their homes.
