Each zodiac sign has a few power colors associated with it, so when you match your style up with your sign’s colors you’ll find that you not only look your best, but you feel your best as well. Color theory is something used by witches, psychologists and marketing teams alike, so there’s a lot to be said for choosing the colors of your closet wisely. You should look into the power colors for your sun, moon and rising, but you can also look for your Venus sign power color as well since that’s the planet which dictates our taste in beauty, art and fashion.
Aries: shades of red and fiery colors
Ruled by the planet Mars, this fire sign is suited for all shades of red. If you have Aries in your big three then it’s likely that you have naturally red or strawberry blonde hair, but if you don’t then this might be the perfect switch to make to your look in order to bring out your natural beauty. Incorporate pops of red and warm tones to give your style a powerful boost!
Taurus: shades of light green
As an earth sign it’s a no brainer that shades of green will look and feel best on you. Taurus sun, moon and risings feel their best when wearing lighter shades of green such as avocado green, lime green or pale green. Even if you’re more of a sleek all black or neutral tone wearing Taurus, you’ll still want to incorporate a flash of green with nail polish, a belt, sunglasses, etc. in order to bring forth your grounded power on a day-to-day basis.
Gemini: shades of yellow and other bright colors
Geminis are as bright and bubbly, just like the color yellow! This is a color that inspires happiness and curiosity, which is the perfect vibe for this Mercury ruled air sign. Yellow tends to look incredible on those with a darker skin tone, so those with a paler pallor may want to invite other bright colors into their wardrobe such as lime green, neon pink or bright blue. Once you find the color that pops and brings out your natural charm and pizazz, don’t be afraid to be bold with your fashion choices because Gemini’s are not here to blend into the crowd!
Cancer: silver and white neutrals
Cancers are ruled by the moon, which is why silver looks so incredible on them. Of course, silver jewelry is an easy and effective way to imbue any outfit with your lunar powers, but you should also incorporate white, gray, and any other light neutrals. Flowy and ethereal styles look great on you as well, so give wide legged pants, linens and bell sleeves a try if you want to lean into your Cancerian side and the power of intuition it brings.
Leos are ruled by the sun, so naturally gold looks incredible on this fire sign. If you’re a Leo sun, moon or rising then you should absolutely invite more gold into your personal style. Big and bold gold jewelry looks incredible on every Leo, but there’s another “color” that always seems to bring out the bombastic and bright energy of a Leo… animal print. Yes, as any Leo knows, animal prints like cheetah and zebra are included in the color wheel! Whether it’s a jacket, a shoe, a belt or your glasses frames, animal prints bring out your powerful leadership energy.
Virgo: white and neutrals
Something Virgos don’t get enough credit for is their timeless fashion sense. Virgos aren’t as flashy as the Leos and Libras that bookend them, but they do have an eye for earthy beauty that is hard to replicate. Flowy and elegant white and light colored neutral shades really highlight your ethereal qualities, but try to stick with clean lines and avoid busy prints. You’re going to look and feel your best when your closet is filled with solid colors and basic styles, it’s your own powerful energy that can make a basic piece feel and look spectacular!
Libra: pinks and reds
Libra is the air sign that rules over our romantic nature, so naturally shades of pink and red tend to look quite stunning on Libra sun, moon and risings. No one catches the eye quite as much in a little red dress as a Libra, but something more subtle like a pink pair of socks hiding under your business suit can still have a similar effect. While reds and pinks can often feel like a POP, adding more of these colors into your wardrobe actually adds a softening effect which aids you in being a better moderator.
Black is flattering on everyone, but there is something magical that happens when a Scorpio sun, moon or rising dons their all black attire. This water sign is ruled by the planet Pluto, the planet farthest away from us here on Earth which has a deep power of transformation. Black helps Scorpios rise up from the ashes and find their own power and strength in the day to day hustle and bustle of life.
Orange is a color that inspires creativity and excitement, two qualities that are inherent in any Sagittarius sun, moon or rising. There is a certain joie de vivre that this fire sign has for most aspects of life and orange is the color which best expresses it–certainly no one knows how to have a good time quite like Sagittarius! So try adding some more orange into your wardrobe in order to invite more of your fearless and free Sagittarius energy into your life.
Capricorn suns are born right smack dab in the middle of winter time here in the northern hemisphere, but regardless of whether or not the skies are gray during your birthday, anyone with a Capricorn sun, moon or rising is going to feel their best in the many shades of the gray winter sky. Whether it’s a tasteful blazer, a killer pantsuit, a cocktail dress, or a muted manicure, Capricorns can make this sometimes dull color sparkle and shine with their steely glare and wicked sense of humor.
Aquarius: shades of blue, especially dark and electric blue
Aquarian people are known for turning heads with their wild and off beat fashions, so it’s interesting to know that their power color is blue–the most common favorite color! All shades of blue are going to be flattering for these trend setters, but dark blues and electric blues are going to give you the most power. Try dying your hair super dark almost black blue, or try rocking a funky blue pair of glasses. Don’t be afraid to take a risk when it comes to fashion, it’s what Aquarius sun, moon, risings do!
Pisces: greens and blues
Pisces is ruled by the planet Neptune and, as the last sign of the zodiac, there is a dreamy, otherworldly quality to these water signs. Colors that inspire the weird and wonderful world of the ocean are best suited for Pisces sun, moon and risings, which is why shades of green and blue are Pisces power colors. You’ll look particularly riveting with seafoam green or turquoise hair!
