Zodiac Colors and Their Meanings – Your Zodiac Color Palette

Whether Mercury is in retrograde or is in smooth astrological sailing, we thought we should lay down some truth on the zodiac colors that YOUR sign ought and ought not to be wearing for inner balance and outer fierceness.

Colors have power. They can affect our mood, stimulate us physically and mentally, and make us perceive things and people differently.

Every person is born under a specific zodiac sign, or astrological sign, if you will.

For starters, the word zodiac relates to a heaven’s belt within about 8 degrees on either side of the ecliptic, including all apparent positions of the sun, moon, and most familiar planets.

This belt is divided into twelve equal parts or signs (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces).

According to ancient Chinese beliefs, each one of them correlates to a specific color in the visible spectrum of light.

Beyond that, each zodiac sign is associated with an animal, constellation, and element (air, earth, fire, and water), which relates to the zodiac colors. It’s all intertwined.

The circular chart is wrong. Sagittarius is mutable and Scorpio is fixed. I have never seen Neptune as the joint ruler of Sagittarius, given the sign's associated with the mind, intelligence, academia, and philosophy. It requires a clear head and boundaries.
