The Spiritual Meaning of Colors. Learn Wicca Symbolism of Colors in the Wiccan Religion

Color Purple

Chakra: Crown

Day of the week: Thursday

Element: Spirit

Planet: Jupiter

Astrological sign: Sagittarius

Because of its association with the crown chakra, the place of connection to the higher self, purple symbolizes good judgment. It is also for this reason that it is the color of people seeking spiritual fulfillment. If you surround yourself with purple, you will have peace of mind. 

Think about it, if your higher self knows exactly what you need and the right time to give it to you  and you allow greater involvement in your day to day life, how could you not possibly feel more peaceful?! Purple is a powerful color to use in meditation. 

Being the combination of red and blue, the warmest and coolest colors, purple is believed to be the ideal color. Purple embodies the balance of red simulation and blue calm. 

It is when we have perfect balance between our Root chakra (red, basic instincts, primal life force) and the Throat chakra (blue, speaking our truth and communication) that we are able to move to the next two chakras (indigo and purple) that are  our divine centers of connection and higher understanding; achieving enlightenment.

Most children love the color purple. Purple is the color most favored by artists. Purple has been used to symbolize magic and mystery, as well as royalty. It is the color worn by The Crone. You can infer the aura color meaning of purple, and any color actually, from the energies it is associated with.
