Why Color Is an Intrinsic Part of Astrology

Each sign of the zodiac is believed to possess a power color. All signs also possess complementary colors that further enhance their powers.

Combining the reading of the birth chart with color psychology, power colors can bring more psychological impact for a person born under a particular sign.

For example, those born under the Earth sign of Taurus will benefit from a room decorated in green—the power color of this sign.

Colors can bring even more balance by combining this hue with pink. This is the color of Taurus’ rose quartz stone. It’s also the color of this sign’s ruling planet Venus, which counteracts Taurus’ sometimes stubborn and serious nature.

1. Aries

Aries is ruled by Mars, the God of War, which is associated with the color red. Energetic, impulsive, and adventurous, Aries is represented by the symbol of the ram. It’s also a Fire sign.

Aries will benefit from red-hued schemes, as well as hot and fiery colors that bring out this sign’s passionate nature.

A balance of mellowness can be brought in with orange and calming taupe brown, inspired by one of this sign’s crystals, jasper.

2. Taurus

The power color for Taurus is emerald green, grounding this sign in its Earth-centric energy. Taurus is a down-to-earth and reliable sign, but has a tendency towards stubbornness.

This can be redirected with the addition of pink to the palette, inspired by its ruling planet Venus and one of its lucky stones, rose quartz.

3. Gemini

An Air sign, Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury. This gives Gemini its yellow power color. Falling under the tropical zodiac, fun-loving and playful Geminis will flourish in tropical schemes.

Combine yellow with other optimistic and tropical hues such as teal green, lime green, and jaffa orange.

4. Cancer

The sign of Cancer, symbolized by the crab, is ruled by the moon, which gives this calm and spiritual sign its power color of silver.

A cardinal Water sign, Cancers can be deeply intuitive and sensitive. They’re often thoughtful introverts who require calm and balanced environments.

Cancers will benefit from a palette of silver combined with calming water-inspired hues of seafoam, rich sea blue, and deep teal.

5. Leo

A vivacious Fire sign, Leo is ruled by the sun. This gives Leos a rich, fiery orange as their power color.

Leos are natural leaders. They’ll thrive around colors that are bold, regal, and associated with monarchy, such as deep red, gold, and ivory.

6. Virgo

The sixth sign of the zodiac, Virgo is represented by the maiden, historically a goddess of wheat and agriculture.

A grounded and practical Earth sign, the power colors of this sign are green and brown. Green nurtures and symbolizes growth, while brown represents the practical and sometimes conservative nature of this sign.

To avoid this sign becoming too stoic, a pale and nature-inspired tone, such as stone or ivory, can bring lightness to Virgo-inspired schemes.

7. Libra

Aesthetically-minded Libra is ruled by the planet of beauty, Venus. This lends pink as the power color of this sign.

As Air signs, Libras will also benefit from schemes which include blue, a sky-influenced hue that reflects this sign’s need for clarity, calm, and balance in all things.

8. Scorpio

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and Mars, lending this Water sign power colors of black and maroon. An often misunderstood sign, Scorpios are believed to be highly assertive and fiercely independent. This often mistakenly associates them with Fire signs.

In a Scorpio-friendly scheme, combine red and black hues with enigmatic and water-influenced teal green, to reflects the Scorpio’s intellectual depth.

9. Sagittarius

Ruled by Jupiter, Sagittarius is a Fire sign, but a mutable one. This means that it’s associated with adaptability and flexibility.

Legend states that seers were born under this sign, which is connected to its symbol, the archer centaur. This mythical creature was believed to never miss a target. It also had the ability to see into the future.

This sign’s spiritual associations have led to its power color to be enigmatic and mysterious purple.

Combine this with molten fire-inspired colors, such as orange and yellow, to capture the expansive and adventurous nature of this sign.

10. Capricorn

Ruled by Saturn and one of the four Earth signs, those born under the sign of Capricorn are highly ambitious, hard-working individuals who often have a reputation for seriousness.

Charcoal gray and brown are the power colors of this sign. They represent maturity and sophistication.

Even industrious Capricorns need a little frivolity sometimes, which is why a lighter, airier hue like sky blue can inspire this sign to explore its lighter side.

11. Aquarius

Symbolized by the water carrier, Aquarius is actually an Air sign. It inherits some of the most common traits of Air, such as sociability and creativity. Those born under Aquarius are considered to be humanitarians with generous spirits.

The power color of this sign, given by its ruling planet Uranus, is blue. This is a peaceful and thoughtful color.

The spirituality and intellectual nature of Aquarius can be further enhanced with the addition of violet and purple.

12. Pisces

The last constellation of the zodiac, Pisces is a Water sign. Symbolized by two fish swimming away from one another yet bound by a rope, this connects with Pisces’ conflict between fantasy and reality.

Neptune rules over this sign. Pieces are, therefore, intrinsically bound to the sea. They’re associated with dreams and creativity, often making them escapist and romantic.

Those born under this sign will find restorative energy in their power color, seafoam green. Coral brings creativity, energy, and beauty to this ethereal, sea-inspired scheme.
