Aries – Red (March 21st-April 19th)

Strong-willed, courageous and passionate, your power colour red represents your energetic, youthful nature. For a fearless leader who is never afraid to put up a fight for what they care about, red is perfect for those who prefer not to fade into the background. Sync up with your ruling planet Mars and choose a red shade for your next set.

Taurus – Green (April 20th–May 20th)

Indulgent, luxurious and classy – the colour green sums up Taurus perfectly! Venus, the planet of love and abundance, rules Taurus and instils in you a love of money, possessions and resources – green is the colour of growth and money after all! However, as an Earth sign, it’s easy for you to stay grounded and down to earth, so it makes sense that your power colour is also associated with nature.

Gemini – Yellow (May 21st–June 20th)

In ancient mythology, it’s said that Gemini had so many passions, hobbies and interests that it had to clone itself to make time for everything! Yellow is the colour of the mind and intellect, enhancing your natural mental ability and focused ambition. This bold, bright hue also perfectly coincides with Gemini season at the beginning of summer.

Cancer – Silver (June 21st–July 22nd)

Your natural affinity with the moon keeps you in tune with your emotions, empowers you to embrace sentimentality and gives you the ability to effortlessly read the emotions in any room you walk into. The colour silver represents your serenity, peace and nurturing qualities, whilst guarding you against coming across as defenceless, over emotional or super sensitive.

Leo – Orange or Gold (July 23rd–August 22nd)

As the lion sign, you are a brave, vibrant, confident and a natural born leader. Your power colours, orange and gold, resonate with your desire for adventure and spontaneity in everything you do.

Virgo (August 23rd–September 22nd)

Detail oriented, logical and practical, it’s safe to say that Virgo is the most sensible star sign – this can be seen in your consistent pursuit of self-development for your own security and stability. Closely associated with Earth and nature, brown appeals to Virgo’s inherent desire for continuous growth whilst appealing to your careful, methodical approach to life.

Libra – Pink (September 23rd–October 22nd)

Finding the beauty in every situation, Libra is well-balanced, optimistic and a lover of classic elegance. Your power colour, pink, symbolises harmony and aids the flow of positive energy – invoking your naturally charming nature.

Scorpio – Black (October 23rd-November 21st)

Scorpio, one of your most iconic traits is your sense of mystery, which gives you the power to inspire intrigue within everyone you meet. It’s safe to say you are characteristically one of the most interesting astrological signs to get to know. Just like you, your power colour, black, is often misunderstood because of its mystifying aura.

Sagittarius – Purple (November 22nd–December 21st)

Purple is the colour of independence, creativity and wisdom, which aligns with Sagittarius’ life-long quest for knowledge, unshakable curiosity and instinctive creative energy. You value freedom more than anything else, and your pursuit of geographical, intellectual and spiritual adventures is strongest when surrounded by purple.

Capricorn – Grey (December 22nd–January 19th)

Hardworking, realistic and determined, when a Capricorn puts their mind to something there’s no mistaking that they mean business. Symbolising strength, maturity and reliability, your power colour grey sums up your core traits perfectly.

Aquarius – Blue (January 20th–February 18th)

Known for your high intellect, creative thinking and tendency to run away with your ideas, your power colour blue, instils within you the stillness of the sky for calmness and clarity of mind. Matching with your ruling planet, Uranus, helps to balance your restless energy so that ideas, conversation and experiments can flow smoothly.

Pisces – Aquamarine (February 19th–March 20th)

Compassionate, gentle and intuitive, you are a healer at heart. Known for your relaxing aura and ability to renew the energy everyone you come into contact with, you embody the calming nature of the ocean. As a water sign, aquamarine is a colour that makes you feel safe, secure and powerful.
