The Color Wheel Of Life!

talismanic color wheel

According to this big, delightful wheel full of juicy color, I resonate with joy and with orange. Oh, and also with community, hospitality & HOME!  YES!  This really makes me smile and makes great sense, so I wanted to share more about color & this beautiful color wheel of life!

Color is immensely persuasive.  We are influenced by color on a psychological level.  Symbolically, color meanings have evolved and are imprinted upon our psyche.  In feng shui terms, color represents one of the five elements, each of which has a profound effect on emotion, well-being and even prosperity in every way.  Color is used in therapy and healing, as each energy center or “chakra” of the body has its own associated color.

The Color Wheel Of Life is a symbolic color wheel that charts the year in a wheel through the seasons. It is a beautiful way of illustrating the flow of  change through a year, and through a life.  I also happen to love the idea of having a birth color that really resonates with me!

According to Crystal Vaults, “The natural color wheel shows the progression of life and color on the planet earth. In contrast to astrologicial signs and other birthstone lists, the color wheel shows us the color of our birth time on earth. The second ring of the wheel indicates the time associated with the colors. The wheel actually is read in counterclockwise order. Start from the winter solstice at the top and follow the color wheel and the year around to the left. The second inner ring shows the days of the year as the year and the color changes progress through the greens of spring, the yellows of summer, and the reds of autumn.”

They also sell a large chart of this wheel as a really striking poster that you can get here.

What do you think? Does your birth color from the wheel ring true to you?! xoxo Dana

It’s funny, yellow is my birth color and the words are actually things that I am not very good at and am striving for. Amethyst actually rings most true for me.

Fascinating! What about pairs of colours that are directly opposite on the wheel – like red and green? Are we more compatible with certain people?
