Everyone knows that different colours mean different things. Even if you know of something as simple as Pokemon, you have certain colours associated with certain things. In magic, this holds true and is actually very important. Today, I would like to explain the colours and associations in regards to magic.
Colours are used in various ceremonies, holidays, altars, spells, and more. Some choose to wear certain colours to help whatever they are working on, or to help them feel a certain way, or accomplish a certain goal. They have always had certain connotations and, without realizing it, many subconsciously go along with it without realizing why. Putting on red lipstick to up one's sex appeal, for instance, or painting a room yellow (or filling it with yellow decor) to feel happier.
The truth is, everything has energy. Colours have energies that people have picked up on and have thus grown to associate them with. Many people even pick a favourite colour based solely or partially on how that colour makes them feel, and not simply on how it looks!
RED: Red is a high-energy colour. It's frequently associated with strong emotions (love, lust, anger, eating too much hot sauce, etc.). In magic, it's frequently used in regards to much the same types of things. Love, conflict, anger, etc. However, if you're having a problem with too much hot sauce, eat a banana, drink some milk, and tone down how much you use next time.
Zodiac: Aries, Scorpio
ORANGE: Orange is primarily used for creativity, courage, justice, joy, opportunity, and even legal matters.
Zodiac: Leo, Sagittarius
YELLOW: Doesn't this colour just make you happy inside? Yellow is used for happiness, optimism, intellect and energy - particularly a more masculine energy. Also, if you need help with physical travel, this is your colour.
Zodiac: Taurus, Libra
GREEN: Wealth, abundance, prosperity, growth, fertility, and energy - particularly a more feminine energy.
Planet: Venus, Mercury
Zodiac: Aquarius, Cancer
BLUE: Communication, intuition, the subconscious, emotions, winning court cases and intellect.
Planet: Jupiter, Moon, Neptune, Mercury, Uranus
Zodiac: Virgo, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces
PINK: Romantic love, self care, emotional healing, friendship, and self love. It's similar to red, but a lot calmer.
PURPLE: Spirituality, psychic abilities, hidden knowledge, and wisdom.
Planet: Mercury, Saturn, Jupiter
Zodiac: Sagittarius, Gemini, Capricorn
BLACK: Protection, combating negativity, banishing negativity, and binding. It has an association with death and endings, but it is not an evil colour in the least. In fact, there is no such thing as an evil colour.
Zodiac: Capricorn, Scorpio
WHITE: Purity and peace. Here's the thing though - this can be used as a placeholder or any other colour!
SILVER: Dreams, intuition, lunar energy, and femininity.
GOLD: Power, ego, courage, success, popularity, fame, solar energy, and masculinity.
