Color magick explained
Each color has the potential to invoke a magickal response –you can either light candles, place items of different colors around or you can include it in your beauty routine. For example, you can try using different nail polishes, eye shadows, lipsticks or wearing clothes to match your intention.
Properties of colors
Although witches agree that colors carry certain intrinsic properties, you have to bear in mind that the most important aspect of a spell is the value you attribute to it. However, here you’ll find some suggestions.
Yellow is the color of abundance and joy, so, if you are feeling down, you can try putting on some yellow clothes to make your day extra special. Wearing yellow is like carrying a beam of light with you.
This color works wonders when you need creativity to flow. If you are an artist, and you can’t find inspiration, place some orange objects around you, wear orange lipstick or light a orange candle.
If you want to attract a new partner or you want to feel sexier, go for red. Red is the color of passion and if you wear a red dress you are bound to feel like a Goddess.
Pink good for healing matters of love –if you want to nurture relationships, try lighting a pink candle.
Purple makes you get in touch with your intuition and it will boost your creative projects.
Blue is the color of peace and protection and it is also used when you need to communicate with clarity. So if you are leading a conference or you have an important meeting, try dressing in blue or wearing blue makeup.
Green is the color of growth and prosperity. If you are in need of cash or you are starting a new business, paint your nails in green, or wear jewelry with green stones.
