For centuries, colors have been used for magickal purposes. They can create, change or enhance a mood; bring about an emotional response; keep one grounded to activity at hand – just to name a few.
Each pantheon and philosophy seem to have their own ideas of what different colors mean. But, this is my blog ~ I am a Witch of Chaos ~ and so, my colors may or may not line up directly with how you perceive their influences.
Black: ~ Spellbreaking, banishing, jinxing, hexing, removing crossed conditions, mourning
Brown: ~ Earth, grounding, caution, court cases, animal magick
Green: ~ Money, luck, gambling, crop success, business success, employment
Blue: ~ Peace, wisdom, harmony, children
Purple: ~ Mastery, power, honor, protection, keeping evil away, control
Red: ~ Sexual magick, domination, energy, lust, passion, vigor
Pink: ~ Love, affection, romance, attraction, reconciliation
Orange: ~ Stimulation, friendship, change, road opener, removing blockages
Yellow: ~ Concentration, creativity, general success
Gold: ~ Gambling, male power and vitality
Grey: ~ Meditation, clarification, neutrality
White: ~ Blessings, purity, spirit, abundance
These colors correspond greatly to many European magickal traditions, as well as Hoodoo and conjure candle work. Interpretation can always be left up to the user, however. Just because it doesn’t fit someone else’s category, doesn’t mean it’s wrong! But more about that later!
