Scroll down to discover color palettes that are uniquely tailored to each zodiac sign. You’ll also learn how color plays an intrinsic and fascinating role in astrology.
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.
You can use your free color palettes to create uniquely tailored schemes for interior design, print, or online layouts, including social media posts and web banners.
Once you’ve found your sign’s palette, right-click and save the image to your computer, or pin to a mood board to come back to later.
Each zodiac palette lists HEX codes that you can use instantly for digital designs. You can also convert your swatches to CMYK for use within print designs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A vivacious Fire sign, Leo is ruled by the sun. This gives Leos a rich, fiery orange as their power color.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
