Last time, in Astrology and Birthstones: April, I mentioned green was the color assigned to the astrological sign, Taurus. Signs of the zodiac aside, green also signifies the harmony of nature. (As you know from experience, colors are powerful influences in our emotional lives. How we react to various colors is very personal. Color psychology is the study of the relationship between a color or hue and a person’s behavior. According to experts in the field, the color green:
• Creates a feeling of safety
• Has significant healing power
• Suggests stability and endurance
• Considered beneficial to both mind and body
• Produces a tranquil, calming effect.
When it comes to the symbolism of the color green; these same experts found it represents “trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven.” It’s also “used to symbolize piety and sincerity.” (Source: Color Psychology.com)

So, What’s Your Favorite Color?
Getting back briefly to the subject of color psychology, I’d you to ask yourself that question and then do a bit of research into what your response says about you. It’s not an easy question to answer; I think the response varies (to some degree anyway) depending on your mood at the time. And it can change according to how well you see color. Because of my failing eyesight, yellow has become my favorite color –simply because I can see it!
Why not has a bit of fun in this pursuit of self-discovery? I had a great time completing the quiz “What’s the Secret Meaning Behind Your Favorite Color? Find Out.” You might, too.
