The Color Yellow


By Morningbird

The color yellow evokes lazy summer days, sipping lemonade under the warm sun, or walking on the beach in bare feet with a warm breeze lifting your hair. Yellow is a warm color and that represents the air element in Wiccan tradition. It is the color of the intellect; of thoughts, communication, creativity, logic and progress.

Wear yellow to be uplifted and to carry the warmth of the sun wherever you go. A yellow raincoat will brighten up a rainy day. Decorate with yellow to bring the sunshine into any dark, dreary room and to inspire a feeling of coziness and create an environment conducive to the amiable exchange of ideas.
