True Colours…


The season of autumn is with us and one cannot help but be moved by the changing colours that Nature brings to us during this time; there is an abundance of hues; crispy browns, gold, russet, green, and orange…just delicious.

The autumnal colours made me think about their associations with the planets and I thought I’d share them here with you.

So just to recap first ,here are the twelve signs of the Zodiac and their planetary rulers,





Leo- Sun









Now for the colourful bit, here are the planets and the colours associated with them.


Mars -claret, red and scarlet

Venus – soft pastel shades of blue and green

Mercury – violet blue, yellow and brown

Moon – pink and silver

Sun – gold

Pluto – black and burgundy

Jupiter – magenta, purple and turquoise

Saturn – grey and black

Uranus – electric blue and any array of shocking colours

Neptune – lavender, mauve and sea-green

Remember: Mercury rules both Gemini and Virgo and Venus rules both Libra and Taurus.

If you remember our ascending sign represents our image and physical appearance …so have a look at what you are wearing today? Are you wearing the colours that are associated with your ascending sign and it’s planetary ruler?

Don’t forget if you know your exact time  of birth you can visit the free website where you can generate your Natal chart which will show you what your ascending sign is.

For me colour is everything and my natal chart reflects this showing how design, colour co-ordination and style are important. Although I do not wear the colours associated with my ascending sign, I do like to ‘see’ them and find them calming and soothing, which reminds us again that astrology is not a ‘one size fits all’ thing, we are all unique individuals ..thank goodness for variety and the spice of life !

Hope this blog stimulates your thinking about astrology and the colour(s) in your life and that you now know about (and in the words of singer-songwriter Cyndi Lauper) ‘your true colours’.
