In vedic astrology, the use of gems, colours, mantras, deities, rituals and other means of adjusting our subtle environment have always been a part of the remedial measures prescribed in astrology.
Colours stars and moods are three different variables – but in the whole spectrum of VIBGYOR ( violet , indigo, blue , green , yellow , orange , red ) why does our wardrobe or colour preference leans towards one particular colour or a few colours ? We find some colours irresistible, mabye this has do with some colour hunger in us . Colour therapy is a recognised stream of medicine in which the patient suffering from a colour deficiency or hunger is advised to gain that colour balance in his system and this is done using – gems or stones – which are concentrated colour vibrations.
A woman’s wardrobe is a riot of colours though the inclinations to a large extent are ruled by the ruling or dominating planets in a woman’s chart . However apart from the personal preferences and the sunsign specifics , given below is a table , if you follow it will and wearing a particular colour on a particular day – especially when the power of the planet on that day is at its best and it is like offering a special prayer to the planet.
Monday it is advisable to wear – white or light blue or silvery shade,.
Tuesday is red or orange ,
Thursday – yellow ,
Friday – Pink , peach or cream, off-white and on
Saturday Black or navy –blue and on v Sunday –golden yellow or orange etc…
At times, the colour defiicency or hunger also causes disbalance and disease. Our aura, that is the halo or the environment or the rainbow surrounding our body shows the changes that take place in our health. Surrounding our bodies the aura also shows colour which are not visible to the naked eye. It can be seen and observed only by seers and clairvoyants and the colours of the aura signify the mental state and physical health.
Used in the right way colours can heal , purify, integrate , nourish, transmute and initiate. People can be categorised according to their auric colours. The high ethers, when they are active radiate living and fiery colours. The mental , astral , etheric and physical bodies have their own colurs. All these colours characterise the progress of man and his achievements.
Each mood, thought , emotion word and movement creates a colour in the aura according to its sources and its alignments. Colours have a great effect on our aura in general, and on our etheric body in particular. The intensity and effects of the colours are stronger if they are the living colours of nature , such as the colours of the sunset or sunrise.
Astrology ascribes to each and every planet a colour of its own and these colours affect our moods to a large extent .

Pale shades like offwhite and cream will calm the jostled nerves of an Aries, so apart from the colour that rules the planet there are some other colours that will work on different moods and state of minds. In general Rust, saffron, golden yellow , mustard are some colours that will instantly appeal to an Aries. But Arians should avoid black as it is a colour that does not harmonise with the planetary indications and Mars and saturn are sworn enemies, so though black may seem to be very fashionable but it is an anathema to the Martial signs.
