Continue to read below and find out which colors are best suited for your particular astrological makeup.
Ruled by the God of War, Aries is prompted by the color red. Red really gets Aries going. It’s one of the best colors for this fiery, forward-moving, fearless sign. The color red stimulates the blood and motivates Aries to get moving. Just think about how Aries feels when is embarking on something new. Red is energetic. It is stimulating. These are all reasons that red is one of the best colors for Aries. So, buy that red sports car, Aries! Rock that red shirt, and yes, that red lipstick does look good on you!
As a steady, stable earth sign, one of the best colors for Taurus is green. Think of beautiful lush meadows, expansive forests, and sprawling pastures. Green is also the color of money which Taurus enjoys earning and spending in a practical way. Adding details of green into the home and the wardrobe will help Taurus feel more grounded and centered. The addition of green plants is an excellent way for Taurus to incorporate color into their home in a very natural, earthy way.
As the messenger of the zodiac, Gemini is motivated by communication and activity which is why the color yellow is perfect for this sign. Yellow is a very stimulating color, and its various hues offer the variety that Gemini must have! By adding pops of yellow in everything from jewelry to clothing and even artwork, this is a perfect way for Gemini to get the extra stimulating energy that yellow provides to go out and continue to be the social butterfly that is.
Ruled by the moon, Cancer resonates with the colors silver and blue. These colors represent the iridescent sparkle of the moon. Wearing silver jewelry, adding silvery-blue details to clothing, and including silver trinkets and accessories throughout the home is an excellent way to add a bit of lunar sparkle to Cancer’s environment. It also allows Cancer to connect to the fluidity of water energy as it represents the tides of water impacted by the moon.
When it comes to Leo, no color comes closer than gold. Gold is a precious metal, and it is special…just like Leo. Gold is also the jewelry worn by royalty which is definitely what Leo is at all times. The color gold also attracts attention which Leo loves and adores. So, adding hints of gold through jewelry, gold nail polish, detailing on accessories, and adding gold items throughout the home is a perfect way to add an element of golden sparkle throughout Leo’s environment.
As the humble earth sign that seeks order and simplicity, Virgo is not really one for a lot of showy colors. In fact, they may prefer colors that are muted, so creams and nudes are perfect for this sign. These colors resonate with the light earthy colors of the wheat fields that are associated with Virgo. These light neutrals are also very easy to style. From nude makeup to wooden bowls for eatery to cream-colored flowers and even wicker baskets, there are a number of ways to add these neutrals to Virgo’s color scheme. Don’t worry about things getting dirty due to the light palette. Virgo will make sure that doesn’t happen.
As the balanced and harmonious beauty of the zodiac, Libra resonates with pastels such as pink and darker hues of rose. These colors are often incorporated through floral patterns which Libra also tends to like. As an air sign, Libra prefers to keep things light and simple. Thus, accents of pink throughout a wardrobe are perfect. Think of a lovely pink scarf or handkerchief. Rose gold is also a lovely jewelry option for Libra, and they would adore a beautiful clear vase filled with soft pink roses.
Dark and smoldering, Scorpio is intense. Ruled by both Mars and Pluto, deep rich reds and black are the preferred colors. Scorpio isn’t really one for a lot of attention, so they usually opt for darker colors as a way of concealing themselves. Wearing dark shades is often a Scorpio move as it allows them to get a lay of the land without being seen. Donning black clothing is often a Scorpio trait. The color black speaks to the energy of Pluto, and its association with death. The deep, rich reds are associated with the planet Mars. The combination of these two colors boosts Scorpio’s motivation to plummet the depths which often involve seeking that which is dark.
Turquoise is an excellent color for the buoyant Sagittarius. This color resonates with the energy of joy and intuition which are traits that Sagittarius embodies. As the adventurer of the zodiac, Sagittarius likes exotic items that remind it of its many trips and experiences. Beautiful turquoise jewelry and artwork accented with this stone are a perfect way for Sagittarius to experience the buoyant, lifting energy of this color. Also, the color turquoise is aligned with good luck. Being ruled by Jupiter, Sagittarius would definitely benefit from the added positive vibes.
The serious Capricorn has got lots of work to do, and they want to look professional doing it. Thus, grays and browns are perfect for this hardworking, diligent sign. Capricorn is pretty simplistic and practical, and it is likely to have a wardrobe filled with gray and brown classic clothing. Even its home is likely to have a modern contemporary design where browns, grays, and black are featured. While some would say that gray is boring, plain, and somber, Capricorn is fine with this as this color speaks to its inherent nature.
Aquarius is unique, and the only color that could possibly relay just how different this sign is would be an electric blue. Ruled by Uranus, Aquarius is the lightning bolt of the zodiac. It gets noticed by being different, so what could be more different than some color with neon added to it. Electric blue is also the color associated with the planet Uranus. Anything from an electric blue hair (which Aquarius is not above trying) to a neon blue sign in its home provides the unique touch that makes Aquarius the rebel that it is.
As the mystic of the zodiac, Pisces rules the ocean as well as the spirit realm. Sea green and lavender are perfect for this sign representing the physical presence of the earth via water and Pisces attachment to the spiritual realm. Flowy, comfortable clothing in these colors allows Pisces to feel connected to its spiritual and emotional selves. Accenting the home with beautiful crystals such as amethyst, green aventurine, and aqua calcite is a lovely way to add these serene colors to the environment while providing Pisces with healing crystal energy.
