In the captivating realm of astrology, our zodiac signs offer profound insights into our personalities, preferences, and destinies. But did you know that the colors associated with your zodiac sign can hold an influence over your life as well? Lucky colors, rooted in ancient traditions and cosmic connections, are believed to enhance our strengths, protect us, and guide us toward good fortune.

So, the connection between colors and different zodiac signs is another intriguing dimension of astrology worth exploring. Whether you’re an Aries who loves fiery red or a Virgo who finds comfort in calming greens, certain colors may help bring a touch of cosmic magic into your life!

Aries Color: Red

Aries Zodiac Sign

Aries is a cardinal fire sign. So, unsurprisingly, the natives tend to have


personalities as well. Their traits are best expressed with the color red.


Red is Aries’ primary color, aligning perfectly with their bold and passionate personality. This fire sign is influenced by Mars, often called the Red Planet. Red, therefore, mirrors Aries’ vibrant, energetic nature, and symbolizes power, strength, and fearlessness — all qualities commonly found in Aries people.

Red also represents their determination and drive to reach their goals, making them unstoppable in pursuing their dreams. Additionally, it also embodies their leadership qualities. Aries is known to inspire others to follow their enthusiastic lead, and red can help them stand out from the crowd more easily.

Incorporating red into their lives can be fun and exciting for Aries. They can wear red clothing to express their vibrant personality and make bold fashion statements. They can also make their home environments more passionate, creative, and energetic by incorporating accents of red. Finally, Aries can also benefit from other lively and vibrant colors, which will fuel their bravery, give them extra energy, and inspire their creativity.

Taurus Color: Green

This fixed earth sign can very much depend on stability and routine and tends to avoid changes.


Taurus’ main color is green, which represents growth and connection to nature. This is so because Taurus people are known for being steady and dependable, just like nature itself, and enjoy spending time outdoors. Their love for nature and its beauty probably stems from their connection with Venus, the planet of love, beauty, and pleasure.

Green also stands for stability, which Taurus natives value greatly. It shows their desire for safety and unchanging conditions. It also symbolizes a solid foundation upon which they can slowly but surely build their relationships and create new projects.

Tauruses have various options for incorporating the color green into their lives. They can wear different shades of green fashion pieces, and also bring green into their living spaces by using plants, artwork, and green accents. Tauruses can even wear green gemstones like Emerald or Jade to stay connected with their main color.

Gemini Color: Yellow

This mutable air sign is arguably the most versatile of all. In the context of colors, this versatility can lead to Geminis having multiple “favorites” or colors they resonate with.


Gemini is often associated with the color yellow, which matches their chatty and inquisitive personality. Yellow symbolizes intelligence, curiosity, and effective communication — qualities that suit Geminis well. This air sign, represented by the celestial twins, is also known for its versatility. Many say it had so many interests it needed to duplicate itself! 

Yellow reflects this versatility, as well as Gemini’s fast thinking and logical abilities. In particular, it highlights the natives’ intelligence and strong desire to learn and explore. Yellow can further promote these qualities in Geminis.

Regarding clothing and style, Geminis can appear lively and communicative by wearing yellow apparel and accessories. To express their intelligence and outgoing nature, they can choose items like yellow bags, shoes, or jewelry. They can also consider painting their walls yellow, especially in areas where they want to promote communication.

Cancer Colors: White and Silver

Cancer zodiac sign

Cancer is a cardinal water sign. The natives are usually very emotional and sensitive, but also proactive. They’re not afraid of taking matters into their own hands and starting projects from scratch.


Cancer, ruled by the nurturing Moon, finds comfort in soft and soothing colors, especially whites. These gentle hues reflect their kindness and sensitivity. Additionally, white can also have a calming effect on both the natives and the people surrounding them.

Silver is another signature color of the Cancer, symbolizing the Moon’s influence on this zodiac sign. The Moon’s silvery glow is serene and protective, just like Cancers offer a safe and secure emotional haven to others. On top of that, silver clothing can make Cancer natives appear more mysterious and compelling. Natives shouldn’t be surprised if they attract a lot of (un)wanted attention when wearing this color!

Cancers are all about home and comfort. They enjoy creating cozy, safe spaces that they love to spend time in. So, it’s also a good idea to incorporate silver and white in their surroundings. Natives can use silver or white items like picture frames and candlesticks to create a calm and tranquil atmosphere in their homes.

Leo Colors: Gold or Orange

This is a fixed fire sign with strong connections with the Sun. Leos also tend to thrive in the spotlight, so it’s no surprise that they’re best represented by the color gold.


Leo’s top color choices are orange and gold, reflecting their royal, ambitious, and confident personality. These colors are also just as vibrant and energetic as the natives of this sign. Orange stands for joy, enthusiasm, and creativity, which go hand in hand with Leo’s lively and artistic nature. Gold, on the other hand, mirrors their incorruptibility, pride, and dignity.

To embrace their colors, brave Leos can wear orange and gold clothes or add orange and gold details to their outfits. They can also use these colors in their home decor. Finally, they can show their energy and passion for life by wearing gold jewelry or purchasing smaller items in these colors, such as phone cases.

Virgo Colors: Green and Brown

Virgo is another sign ruled by Mercury. However, unlike Gemini, it is an earth sign that finds elegance in soft earth tones of green and brown. These colors mirror their careful and detailed nature.

Brown signifies Virgo’s strong connection to Mother Earth, reflecting their grounded approach to life and a sense of responsibility. It also embodies stability and a commitment to detail. Green, on the other hand, offers balance to the headstrong natives known for their determination and hard work. It aids in relaxation, stress reduction, and grounding when they begin to feel overwhelmed.

Virgos can easily include these colors in their outfits, giving off a subtle elegance with a warm touch. Personal accessories in shades of brown and green not only match Virgo’s style but also align with their down-to-earth and genuine nature. In homes, a mix of green and brown helps create an inviting and relaxed atmosphere.

Libra Colors: Pink and Blue

The cardinal air sign is known for its beauty and predominantly feminine nature.


Libra is another sign ruled by Venus. It is all about balance and harmony, which pastel tones of pink and blue perfectly reflect. These colors represent their relaxed and sociable nature and desire for fairness.

Pink is particularly important to Libras because it mirrors their loving and sweet disposition. Pink symbolizes love, understanding, and nurturing, all of which align with Libra’s pursuit of balance and empathy. Blue, on the other hand, is often described as the color of emotional strength, bringing calmness and tranquility into one’s life.

Libras like beautiful things and aim to design spaces and surroundings that show their refined preferences. So, the natives should have no issues incorporating blue and pink into their lives in aesthetically pleasing ways. Again, they can try wearing blue and pink clothes and jewelry or including these colors in their environment.

Scorpio Color: Black

Scorpio zodia sign

This fixed water sign is known for its extreme emotions, intensity, and depth.


Scorpio is often seen as mysterious and deep, with a strong desire to explore life’s enigmas. The color black perfectly captures their core essence. Black symbolizes Scorpio’s deep, curious nature and their willingness to delve into life’s mysteries. It also reflects their emotions and their ability to understand the depths of the human psyche.

Wearing black outfits enhances their charm and presence, adding sophistication and leaving a lasting impression. Using black-themed accents in home decor can create a powerful atmosphere. Black gemstone jewelry and accessories can also serve as reminders of their strength and depth.

Sagittarius Color: Purple

Saggittarius zodiac sign

Also known as The Archer, Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign — and probably the only one that can challenge the versatility and communication abilities of the Gemini.


Purple is the primary color for Sagittarius, signifying intelligence, creativity, and enlightenment, all of which are essential for these natives. It reflects their deep thinking abilities and love for exploring mysteries. With that in mind, it can be said that Sagittarius is similar to Gemini in many ways. However, Sagittarius people tend to go deeper than Geminis, which makes purple a better fit than a lighter color such as yellow.

Purple also represents the natives’ adventurous and imaginative nature. Just as purple is unique, Sagittarians are open-minded and embrace new experiences. Sagittarians can incorporate purple into their lives through clothing and decorating their homes with purple items like pillows or curtains. This will make them feel calm and connected to their zodiac sign.

Capricorn Color: Gray and Brown

This cardinal earth sign can be very rigid in its outlook on life. However, Capricorns are also incredibly ambitious, disciplined, and goal-oriented.


Capricorn, a sign ruled by Saturn, is known for its ambition, responsibility, and structured approach to life. Dark gray is the primary color for the natives, as it symbolizes the stability and practicality that Capricorns often seek. 

Neutral gray aligns with Capricorn’s preference for not drawing too much attention, as they typically prefer recognition for their achievements rather than their appearance. Using gray can help Capricorns feel grounded and centered, aiding them in making thoughtful decisions in life.

Brown, on the other hand, is linked to the Earth element. It helps ground the natives and energize them, which further aids them in achieving their goals. Capricorns should consider wearing both brown and dark gray tones and incorporating them into their home environments. They can also experiment with different brown gemstones, such as Andalusite.

Aquarius Colors: Blue and Silver

A fixed air sign, Aquarius is known for its futuristic and humanitarian vibes.


Aquarius is an independent air sign ruled by Uranus. It shines in electric blues and silvers, which mirror the natives’ uniqueness, individuality, and forward-thinking mindset.

Blue, as a primary color for Aquarius, represents their essential qualities like wisdom, intelligence, and calmness. They have insightful thoughts and a unique, out-of-the-box perspective on the world. Including blue in their lives allows Aquarians to express themselves better. They can wear blue clothing, decorate their homes with blue, and use blue accessories, like jewelry or bags. Silver, on the other hand, can help natives come up with new ideas, ground them into reality, and see tangible returns.

Pisces Color: Seafoam Green

Pisces zodiac sign

Pisces is a mutable air sign, and the last one in the zodiac. It is said to incorporate traits of all preceding signs. So, a Pisces will likely be able to pull off any of the above colors.


The power color for Pisces is seafoam green, though other light blue-green shades like aquamarine hold significance as well. Seafoam green blends the earth’s grounding energy with the deep mysteries of the ocean. This combination of green and vibrant blue rejuvenates emotional Pisces, allowing them to express empathy and vulnerability in their relationships.

Wearing sea green shades enables Pisces to connect with their inner intuition and navigate the profound waters of their dreams and emotions.

Lucky Colors of 2024

The Chinese Zodiac, an integral part of Chinese culture, associates each year with one of the twelve zodiac animals: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig. Next year, 2024, will be the Year of the Wood Dragon. More precisely, it begins on February 10, 2024.

The signature color of this year will be emerald green, which symbolizes growth, rebirth, harmony, and prosperity. Golden yellow and rich red may also align well with the year’s symbolic qualities. Golden yellow symbolizes optimism; rich red symbolizes vitality and passion. All of these qualities are important for the Wood Dragon.

Try wearing them in 2024 and see what happens! According to Chinese astrology and feng shui, they should help you harness the full potential of 2024.
