Lively Leos - A Complete Guide To The Colors Of Leos

The Leo Zodiac Sign 

You have a Leo zodiac sign if you were born between the dates of July 23rd, and August 22nd.

The Leo part of the Zodiac sign is ruled by the sun – the center of the universe (or at least the center of the human universe). 

The lion is the symbol of the Leo zodiac sign, which represents the heart chakra.

This is the center of emotions, feelings, intuition, creativity and self-expression. The Leo personality is warm, passionate, generous, friendly, and outgoing.

They love being around people and enjoy social gatherings. They want to make others feel good about themselves and are usually very charming.

Not only that, but they like to take charge and lead others. They are often seen as leaders and teachers.

People who are born under the Leo zodiac sign tend to be very charismatic and attractive.

The Leo Personality 

People born under the Leo sign are naturally optimistic, enthusiastic, energetic, dynamic, confident, and inspiring.

They are also known to be charming, entertaining and persuasive. These traits come from the fire element of the Leo sign.

Fire is the element of passion, enthusiasm, charisma and leadership.

When someone has the fire element in their chart, they are likely to be charismatic, magnetic, exciting and full of energy.

Fire Element 

Fire Element 

People born under the Leo sign have an affinity for the fire element. They are natural leaders and inspire others through their warmth and charm.

They are highly creative and intuitive. Their minds are quick to learn new things, and they are always looking for new challenges.

They are also very ambitious and driven by success. They are not afraid to go after what they want, but they do need time to accomplish their goals.

A person born under the Leo sign may have difficulty letting go of something once they get their hands on it.

They are very tenacious and determined.

The Leo sign is connected to the heart chakra, and is therefore also associated with internal organs such as the cardiac system, and the back. 

Orange – The Leo Color 

The color orange is associated with the Leo zodiac sign. Orange is the color of the sun and its rays. It is linked to the fire element and is associated with the heart chakra.

It is a happy, positive color. Furthermore, it helps us to awaken our inner power and confidence, by encouraging us to be more assertive and courageous.

Orange gives us strength and courage when we require it most – so if you are going through a troubling time, or a big change – wear orange to give you confidence, and brighten your mood.

It brings out the best in us and makes us shine brightly. It’s a powerful color that can help show the best side of our personalities.

If you are a Leo, wearing orange will boost all the good fortune and luck in your life.

Mixing a different shade of orange in your clothing and interiors (and even in your garden – think marigolds, orange lilies and tulips) can mean that they absorb different energies for each hue. 

Other Leo Colors

After the primary Leo color – orange – there are a number of other colors that suit Leos very well, and are known to bring luck and prosperity into their lives. The more minor Leo colors are: 

1. Red

The Leo color is red. Red is the color of fire and blood. It is linked to Mars, the planet of war. Red is the color of the warrior spirit, too.

It is hot, aggressive, and passionate and is known to  stimulate the mind and body. It is said that the color red is the color of action, and this is because it is associated with the fire element.

Additionally, the color red has been used for centuries by people around the world to symbolize love, passion, and desire.

In Chinese astrology, the color red represents the element of wood. Wood is the element of growth and change.

It is associated with the earth element. This is why many believe that the color red is lucky for those who are born under the Leo sign.

2. Yellow

Yellow is the color of the Sun. It is associated with fire and the fire element. It is the color of creativity, intellect, and intelligence. Furthermore, it is the color associated with the brain.

In addition to being the color of the Sun, yellow is also the color of gold. Gold is the metal of wealth and prosperity.

If you are born under the Leo zodiac sign, then yellow is a great color for you. It will make you feel like a million bucks!

Yellow is the color of happiness and sunshine, meaning that we think it is a good idea for you to wear yellow whenever you feel blue or down.

Add yellow accents to any room in your house to brighten up your mood.

3. Gold 

Gold is definitely an excellent choice for Leo. The average Leo loves money, wealth, prosperity and status, but they also love being generous and optimistic – meaning that gold is the perfect color to compliment their personality.

This is because gold is an expensive metal that makes people feel rich. When wearing gold, people feel more confident.

People who wear gold tend to be successful – dress for the job you want, not the job you have, am I right? 

4. Purple 

Purple is a very powerful color for Leos. It symbolizes royalty and nobility – as it used to be incredibly expensive and rare to dye the color, meaning only people from high class nobility could wear the color.

Because of its history, the color purple tends to represent both wealth and luxury.

If you view yourself as a strong and powerful Leo,  you can claim this component of your zodiac sign by wearing purple as often as possible.

Deep, rich shades are perfect for Leos – showing sophisticated wealth and power.

You can use these eggplant shades in your decorating scheme, too, to reinforce your strength and power.

5. Copper 

Copper is another great color for Leo. Like gold, copper is a precious metal that is considered valuable. It is also a warm color that brings out the natural warmth of the sun.

This means that if you are feeling cold (in a spiritual sense), you should wear copper. 

The color copper is associated with the heart element. It is also associated with the lungs and the chest area.

This is why some say that the color orange is similar to the color copper. Both colors are associated with the heart.

If you are a Leo, you might find that wearing copper helps you focus on your feelings and emotions.

Colors For Leos To Avoid 

Colors For Leos To Avoid 

1. Pink 

In astrology, pink is the color of the moon. It is associated with water and the water element – rather than the fire of the Leo zodiac sign.

Water is the element of emotions and feelings.

It is the element of the heart chakra, and has been associated with inexperience, immaturity and even weakness – which is totally opposite to the leadership traits that Leos tend to have. 

Pink is the color associated with femininity, making it quite different from the masculine-like drive for wealth and power that comes more naturally to a Leo.

It is also the spiritual color that is associated with the female reproductive system. 

Overall, Leos should probably avoid wearing or decorating with the color pink, as it will do nothing for your personality, unless you have some specific calling to the color pink. 

2. Blue 

Blue is another color that is not recommended for Leos. It is the color that represents the sky and the heavens.

In astrology, it is associated with air and ether – two elements that are completely opposite to the warm, fiery nature of Leos.

Air is the element of thought and communication. It is the element that governs our intellect, so if you are feeling confused, anxious or worried, you might consider wearing blue to help clear your mind. 

Blue is also the color of the Pisces zodiac sign, which is ruled by Neptune – the planet of spirituality and dreams.

If you are looking for something to inspire you spiritually, then you might find that wearing blue helps you get there.

However, if you are looking for practicality and logic, then you should probably steer clear of the color blue.

Blue just evokes an aloofness that doesn’t align with a Leo’s personality. 

3. Beige 

Beige is yet another color that is not suitable for Leos. It was originally called “beigy” and was made from mixing browns together.

It is the color of earth and soil. Earth is the element of stability and security – whereas the Leo element, fire, is raging and passionate.

A Leo needs to feel secure and stable to function at their best. They need to know they can count on themselves and others around them.

If you are feeling insecure or unsure about yourself or your situation, then you may want to avoid wearing beige. 

4. White

White can go either way – but we have classed it as one to avoid, as it doesn’t tie into many of Leos primary personality traits.

White is the color of purity. Purity can be linked to other important qualities that Leos possess.

They are known for being honest, sincere and truthful – making them often pure of intention.

However, they are also known for being wild and untamable, especially during teenage years, meaning that they stray away from this purity.

Overall, this means that when you wear white, you are telling people that you are pure and trustworthy.

If you are trying to make a good impression, then you should definitely wear white. If you are looking to appear more confident, then you should avoid wearing white – it will shrink you down, and make you appear more inexperienced, which is something Leos typically don’t like.

5. Black

For a lot of people, black is the color of death. Death is the end of life, so in astrological terms, it is associated with endings and change.

This is why it is such a popular color for funerals. In terms of the zodiac and spirituality, black is totally opposite to a Leo’s personality.

Avoid this one – it is dreary, and drain your energy and your appearance. 

6. Gray

Gray is another color that has been associated with death. It is the color between black and white. It is the color most commonly used to represent the afterlife.

Furthermore, it is fairly opposite to all things that make a Leo, a Leo – it is drab, empty and bland.

As a Leo, you should probably avoid wearing or decorating with this color. It is quite draining, and can take away some of your unique pizzazz. 

Final Thoughts 

In conclusion, there are a whole host of colors that are associated with Leos, and an even larger set that should be avoided.

We hope that this guide has helped you understand what colors work well for Leos and what colors do not.

Please remember that these are only general guidelines, and everyone is different. You should always use your own intuition and common sense when choosing your wardrobe.
