I found a website once which went over the colors of the aura and what they meant. I can't find the link to the site, but I had copy/pasted some
info into a document that I saved - and here it is:
Red is the first of the primary colors and in ancient symbolism it represented the body, the earth, and hell, all three of which meant the same thing
in the old mystery religions. The earth was the irrational world into which the soul descended from heaven. The body was the earth form which held the
soul captive. Heaven was blue, and the spirit was blue. The mind was associated with yellow. It is interesting that in some systems of metaphysics
blue is considered to be the true color of the sun; that is, if we could be outside earth we would see the sun as a blue lightsoft, powerful, and
spiritual. The yellow color is supposed to result from the collision of the sun's rays with the atmosphere of earth. Since the greatest spiritual
weapon of man is his intellect, it is natural that mind be associated with the sun's color in this world.
As to the meaning of red, it indicates force, vigor and energy. Its interpretation depends upon the shade, and as with all colors, upon the
relationship of other colors. Dark red indicates high temper, and it is a symbol of nervous turmoil. A person with dark red in his aura may not be
weak outwardly, but he is suffering in some way, and it is reflected in his nervous system. Such a person is apt to be domineering and quick to act.
If the shade of red is light it indicates a nervous, impulsive, very active person, one who is probably self-centered. Scarlet indicates an overdose
of ego. Pink, or coral, is the color of immaturity. It is seen usually in young people, and if it shows up in the aura of one who is grown it
indicates delayed adolescence, a childish concern with self. In all cases of red there is a tendency to nervous troubles, and such people ought to
take time to be quiet and to get outside themselves.
Red is the color of the planet Mars, and corresponds to do, the first note in the musical scale. In early Christianity it signified the suffering and
death of Christ, and was the f.nlor of wa.r. atriffi and sacrifice.
Orange is the color of the sun. It is vital, and a good color generally, indicating thoughtfulness and consideration of others. Again, however, it is
a matter of shade. Golden orange is vital and indicates self-control, whereas brownish orange shows a lack of ambition and a don't-care attitude.
Such people may be repressed, but usually they are just lazy. People with orange in their auras are subject to kidney trouble.
In the early church orange signified glory, virtue, and the fruits of the earth, all of these being connected naturally with the sun. In the musical
scale the note re corresponds to orange.
Yellow is the second primary color. When it is golden yellow it indicates health and well-being. Such people take good care of themselves, don't
worry, and learn easily; good mentality is natural in them. They are happy, friendly, and helpful. If the yellow is ruddy, they are timid. If they are
red-heads they are apt to have an inferiority complex. They are thus apt often to be indecisive and weak in will, inclined to let others lead them.
In the musical scale the note mi corresponds to yellow, and Mercury is the planet of this color.
Pure emerald green, particularly if it has a dash of blue, is the color of healing. It is helpful, strong, friendly. It is the color of doctors and
nurses, who invariably have a lot of it in their auras. However, it is seldom a dominating color, usually being over-shadowed by one of its neighbors.
As it tends toward blue it is more helpful and trustworthy. As it tends toward yellow it is weakened. A lemony green, with a lot of yellow, is
deceitful. As a rule the deep, healing green is seen in small amounts, but it is good to have a little of it in your aura.
Saturn is the planet of this color, and fa is its musical note. In the early church it symbolized youthfulness and the fertility of nature, taking
this quite naturally from the sight of the fields in spring.
Blue has always been the color of the spirit, the symbol of contemplation, prayer, and heaven. The sky is bine because gas molecules in the air cause
light rays from the sun to be scattered. This is the scientific explanation but, as I have mentioned before, bine is said to be the true color of the
sun, and it is also the color of the planet Jupiter, which is the ruler of great thoughts and high-mindedness.
Almost any kind of blue is good, but the deeper shades are the best. Pale blue indicates little depth, but a struggle toward maturity. The person may
not be talented, but he tries. He will have many heartaches and many headaches, but he will keep going in the right direction. The middle blue, or
aqua, belongs to a person who will work harder and get more done than the fellow with light blue, though there may be little difference between them
in talent. Those with the deep blue have found their work and are immersed in it. They are apt to be moody and are almost always unusual persons, but
they have a mission and they ateadfastly go about fulfilling it. They are spiritual-minded for the most part, and their life is nanally dedicated to
an unselfish cause, anch as science, art, or social service. I have seen many Sistera of Mercy with this dark blue, and many writers and singers also.
The musical note of blue is sol, and in the early church the color was assigned to the highest attainments of the soul.
Indigo and Violet
Indigo and violet indicate seekers of all types, people who are searching for a cause or a religious experience. As these people get settled in their
careers and in their beliefs, however, these colors usually settle back into deep blue. It seems that once the purpose is set in the right direction,
blue is a natural emanation of the soul. Those who have purple are inclined to be overbearing, for here there is an infiltration of pink. Heart
trouble and stomach trouble are rather common to persons with indigo, violet and purple in their auras.
Venus is the planet of indigo, and la is its musical note. The moon is the planet of violet and ti is its musical note. In the early church indigo and
violet meant humiliation and sorrow.
