Colors have very different meanings and can conjure up different reactions in people. Wearing or displaying some colors can spur aggression in others or can make them feel more comfortable. The stuble use and choice of color can help you be more successful in how you perceive yourself and how others view you.
Here is a quick guide:
Red is associated with energy, force, aggression and power. It also shows passion; the stronger the red is the greater the intensity of the passion (like sending red roses for "love" but pink for "friendship".) Red is attributed to the astrology sign of Aries which is powerful, domineering and strong. When you wear red, you naturally feel more in control and out front. If you prefer to blend into the background. avoid wearing too much red.
Yellow is sunshine, happiness, energy, smarts and honor. It is associated with the zodiac sign of Gemini which is sociable, charming, cheery and mentally active. Yellow grabs ones attention. But studies have found that overuse of the color yellow may create too much stress. (Geminis are known to get overstressed easily.) Babies cry more in yellow rooms. But use this color carefully - yellow is not the color of "status" so Capricorns should avoid. If you want to impress, don't cloak yourself in yellow.
Orange is considered joyful because it combines the strength of red with the happiness of yellow. It represents enthusiasm, fascination, creativity, success and stimulation. They say that orange increases oxygen supply to the brain and gives an energizing boost to stimulate brain activity. Because it is a citrus color it is said to stimulate appetite and is associated with healthy food. So a restaurant with an orange color motif may spur diners. Orange is associated with Libra who has a warm personality, loves to attract attention and loves healthy food.
Green is nature, growth, safety, harmony, fertility and freshness. It is said to have great healing power and is a very relaxing color (The "green" room in television is where guests wait to go on air. It is considered a serene and comfortable room and usually has drinks and food to make it more comfortable.) Cancer, with its nurturing personality, love of children and thriftiness (green is the color of money...) can make great use of this range of color.
Blue is also associated with nature: the sky and the sea. And as such, offers depth, stability, trust, loyalty, wisdom and truth. It is a caliming color and is attributed to the sign of Taurus and of Pisces but for different reasons. Taurus for its stability, expertise and solidity and Pisces for its spirituality, purity, healing and relationship to water. Blue supresses appetite so use it carefully around any food situation.
Purple is the perfect combination of stability (of blue) and force (or red) and therefore is associated with power, luxury, wealth and ambition. For Sagittarius it is the color of independence, creativity and magic and for Leo it is the color of royalty and extravagance. Children prefer purple to all other colors.
White conjures up feelings of purity, light, goodness and innocence. Obviously Virgo, with its emphasis on cleanliness, simplicity and virginity does well with this color. White is also high tech and coolness and can therefore work well with the Aquarian personality.
Black is associated with power, elegance and mystery, as is the astrological sign of Scorpio. It can give the feeling of strength, authority and prestige so Capricorn can also use this color to good effect. Since the color black changes perception (wearing a black dress can make you look thinner) you can use it to enhance other colors.
