Color Magick

The Magick of Colors: How Colors Empower

Unless you are color blind, colors play a vitally important role in the world. Both the physical world and the nonphysical world are enhanced through the use of colors. In fact, colors are essential for a few different reasons.

Psychology, for example, teaches us that each color has an impact on our feelings and moods. This means they are instrumental in influencing the subconscious mind. Anything that aids and influences the subconscious mind is also going to affect our conscious mind and the outer world around us.

As such, everything from the color of the candle you choose to light in a candle spell to the color of light you mentally decide to send and surround another person with has an impact. This is an impact that bridges across multiple levels of consciousness and reality.

Turning attention away from color for a few moments, an important question now needs to be asked. Do you know what correspondence is as it relates to metaphysics and magick practices?

A correspondence is when there is a relation between two things. For example, Saturn corresponds to stability and discipline. Correspondences are helpful in magick and even in our thinking. They tell us how certain symbols might potentially impact the subconscious mind and, thus, the energy that is being created and shaped by our will.

Below is a correspondence list for various colors. This list is, no doubt, not complete. It’s merely a sampling – a resource you can turn to.

You can use this list when:

  • Deciding which candle to light for various reasons
  • Figuring out which color to send a person or room for various reasons
  • Determining what color to wear for personal power related to the color
  • Decorating a room, office, home, or webpage to utilize the psychological power of the color
  • Figuring out what color crystal to use in a particular spell or for a specific reason
