I Can Feel Your Aura Man- Understanding The 7 Aura Colors

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at CWU chapter.

If you read the title and are thinking, “wtf is an aura?” here is a simplified version for you.

Aura- “the luminous body that surrounds the outside of your physical one.” The idea behind an aura is the energy “field” you personally have surrounding you. Your aura is often defined by colors and these colors symbolize things like ambition, courage and passion.

People who have a blue aura are often peaceful, wise and are ones you can trust. They are also the ones who were gifted with the ability to communicate. Their professions may include: public relations, professional singers, radio hosts and the list goes on and on.

I see red

When you see the word “RED” passion or intensity comes to your mind, right? Well, that is basically it. If someone has a red aura, their energy field feeds off the physical energies of others and they prefer to be all hands on deck in team activities.

There are two sides to a red aura.

  • Cherry Red: This is the aura I have described up top. Very hands-on + adore physical attraction.
  • Deep Red: This relates to intensity but in a stressed or negative light. These are the people who you can literally tick off within thirty seconds. eeeekkk.

It was all yellow

When I think of the aura yellow, the Pixar character Joy pops into my mind. People who radiate a yellow aura are those sweet wildflowers we want to protect for all eternity. They are the Hufflepuff legends of our world. These people are typically very pleasant to be around and can be a voice of reason in any feud.

it’s the green you need

This aura is like a magnet in the aura world. People who have a green aura pull you in with their comforting nature. Some have related the green aura to nature and how the people who possess it are like trees, constantly growing and blossoming. People with green auras typically are very open to life experiences and focus on healing physically, mentally and spiritually. The best profession for green auraed individuals is one that is constantly changing and new opportunities are arising.

Purple haze

If someone has a purple aura, they are very in-tune with their emotions and tend to be less interactive and more sensitive. While feeling your feelings isn’t always a bad thing, people with a purple aura are more susceptible to creating results from their stress without even testing. They can get very in their head and this can cause self-doubt and anxiety.

Now, if you do meet a purple aura beauty, just because these traits are listed, does not mean it matches them exactly. These people can also have found balance, grounding, and learned to push away the bs.
