Interpreting Aura Colors Meaning

Aura colors meaning will vary significantly as auras contain many different colors, change colors constantly, and each shade reveals a different meaning. Your mood, what you’re doing and what you’re experiencing in life all determine the colors of your aura at any given time.

In New Age pop culture, there is a common misconception that aura colors meaning is straightforward. Examples are: red=passion, yellow=optimism and purple=spirituality. Make no mistake, colors do contain meaning. But attempts to create ‘cut and dried’ color codes greatly over-simplify the matter.

Within each color, there are many different shades and tones. Each unique shade communicates a different aura colour meaning. Take a simple example: the color red. A bright shade of red which contains a lot of yellow reads very differently than a dark shade of red which contains a lot of brown. Each of these tones would express something different about your aura. A trained clairvoyant reader can look at these shades of color and interpret their unique shades of meaning.

Another example...imagine you are going through color swatches to pick the right tone of paint for a room. There are many subtle variations. Some you will like and some you won’t like. Even if they are all tones within the same color, each can make you feel differently. Bottom line: different tones of the same aura colour communicate different meanings.

The colors of your aura are also affected by the energies of other people. It is common to have other people’s colors in your aura. For example, a green aura color meaning could mean many things. If a mother wants her daughter to grow up to be a certain kind of woman, the mother may put her own shade of green energy into the daughter’s aura. In an aura reading, or a clairvoyant reading it may show that the daughter’s aura contains green and that the green aura color meaning is something completely different than what might be expected. Having someone else’s energy in your aura like this can create many problems, including confusion, inner unrest and even health problems.

Your aura can contain any one of the million color variations in the universe. So it is a mistake to squeeze a green aura color meaning and to expand that to any aura colors meaning down into a ‘cut and dried’ color code. There are, however, some general themes which can help guide the interpretation process. Keep in mind, aura colors meaning depends on the shades and also who the energy comes from. These are some rough guidelines for interpreting aura colors...
