Signs and Colors!

Color correspondences are just one more valuable ingredient in any astrological reading of a horoscope or interpretation of zodiac influences, but they are equally important when combining astrology with a magic spell or ritual. The appropriate colors for a particular astrological sign when combined with a spell or incantation can be included to symbolize the intent or purpose of the spell being cast.

The traditional associations for particular colors as listed on this page are intended to provide the historical, traditional correspondences of color as employed over the last few centuries.
