Did you know that you have a unique power color?
Power colors are tied to our zodiac signs and are symbolic of our individual personalities, energy/life force, and behavioral traits, specifically how we react to situations and other people.
These power colors can also be considered elemental, philosophical, and spiritual. In fact, many cultures, presently and historically, put great importance on colors and what they represent.
More generally, colors can also provide meaning, signs, and even have a direct effect on mood.

Aries (Zodiac Colors)
Date: March 21 – April 19
Aries, the first zodiac sign, embodies the color red and the element of fire. It might come as no surprise that people of this sign are action-oriented, bold, hot-headed, and passionate.
People who are Aries are also known to be courageous, audacious, and natural-born leaders.
No power color comes without its negative traits. And for Aries, these include impatience, a short temper, impulsiveness, selfishness, stubbornness, recklessness, and a controlling nature.
But due to the bold leadership traits of Aries and the color red, people who are Aries are naturally drawn to career paths such as becoming a soldier, rescue worker, personal trainer, athlete, entrepreneur, and any position of management.
And when it comes to relationships, Aries tend to work well with Sagittarius and Libra, whose respective power colors purple and pink offset and complement the color red, as well as the overall strengths and weaknesses of Aries sign-bearers.
Taurus (Zodiac Colors)
Date: April 20 – May 20
Taurus, the second of the twelve zodiac signs, represents the color green and the element of earth. This makes people who are Taurus reliable and steadfast, loving and warmhearted, as well as persevering and persistent, just like nature itself.
As a result, Taurus sign-bearers can also be stubborn, greedy, blunt and plain-spoken, possessive, and easily bothered or provoked.
Green symbolizes growth, so people who are Taurus tend to want to see constant growth and improvement.
Tauruses, in terms of potential career paths, can make great artists, chefs, designers, beauty technicians, and educators/teachers, due to their persistence and penchant for growth in themselves and others.
The color green also makes people of the Taurus zodiac sign highly compatible with Cancer, Pisces, and Capricorn.
These signs represent earth and/or water, which both complement the power color green and its roots in nature.
Gemini (Zodiac Colors)
Date: May 21 – June 20
Gemini, the third zodiac sign, symbolizes the planet Mercury and the power color yellow. Yellow is a calming, approachable color that represents youth, liveliness, happiness and optimism, as well as intellect, clarity, loyalty, and adaptability.
But since the power color yellow is also light and bright, symbolizing youth and joy, people who are Geminis can also be inconsistent, indecisive, nervous and anxious, overly sensitive, and immature/childish at heart.
These power color traits, however, can lead Geminis to career paths such as nurses, teachers, tour guides, small business owners, child workers, event organizers, and project managers, due to their natural affability and desire for happiness and joy.
Geminis pair well with several other zodiac signs and their power colors, including Aquarius, Leo, Sagittarius, and Scorpio, thanks to their overall sociable and adaptable nature.
Cancer (Zodiac Colors)
Date: June 21 – July 22
Cancer is the fourth zodiac sign, connected to silver and the element of water. Silver, as a power color, embodies shrewdness, cautiousness, intuition, psychic abilities, protectiveness, unconditional love, and sympathy.
On the other hand, however, Cancer sign-bearers who represent the color silver are also sensitive, overly emotional/sentimental, moody, possessive, grudge-bearing, and sometimes complicated to understand.
But due to their sympathetic, shrewd, and intuitive nature, people of the Cancer zodiac sign make great teachers, nurses and doctors, child/social workers, nutritionists, mental health workers, therapists, and realtors.
With the power color silver and the element of water, Cancer sign-bearers go well together with Taurus, Capricorn, and Pisces, which share similar elements and power colors that represent compatible traits.
Leo (Zodiac Colors)
Date: July 23 – August 22
Leo, the fifth sign of the zodiac, represents the lion, fire, and the power color orange. Due to this, Leos are bold, loyal, kind-hearted, and generous, as well as strong leaders that are passionate and devoted – especially when it comes to fostering genuine, long-lasting relationships with those around them.
As representatives of lions with a bold power color, negative traits of Leos include jealousy, an inflated ego, impatience, self-centeredness, opinionatedness, stubbornness, and dominance.
However, the traits related to orange as a power color make Leos great leaders and politicians.
They can also be drawn to career paths that include administrators and managers, performers, business owners, salespersons, and project managers.
When it comes to relationships, Leos might find themselves paired with Libra, Gemini, and Aquarius – power color personalities that can help to offset their stubbornness and penchant for dominance.
Virgo (Zodiac Colors)
Date: August 23 – September 22
Virgo, the sixth sign of the zodiac, symbolizes earth and the color brown. As a power color representing earth, Virgos are dependable, resilient, and stable.
They are also modest, practical, and intelligent, typically from an analytical point of view.
But due to this penchant for analysis and minor details, Virgos and the power color brown can also represent perfectionism, harsh criticism, fussiness, meticulousness, and the desire to uphold strict tradition or convention.
As a result, Virgos can be drawn to stable careers or career paths that nurture their proclivity for analysis and specifics, such as becoming a detective, psychologist, dietician, critic, writer, accountant, doctor or nurse, or scientist.
Due to their perfectionist nature, Virgos pair well with one another, but also Libra and Capricorn zodiac signs.
Libras tend to be easygoing, which can benefit the meticulousness of Virgos, while Capricorns share a proclivity for practicality and ambition.
Libra (Zodiac Colors)
Date: September 23 – October 22
Libra, the seventh sign of the zodiac, aligns with the power color pink and the feminine planet Venus, named after the Greek goddess of love.
Pink embodies love and romance, compassion, diplomacy, communication, sociability, practicality, charm, and charisma.
On the other hand, pink – as well as the element of air – can also symbolize flirtatiousness, gullibility, indecisiveness, self-indulgence, superficiality, and unreliability.
Libras, due to being good communicators with a compassionate and diplomatic nature, make ideal recruiters, event planners, realtors, salespersons, artists, motivational speakers, counselors, and influencers.
As for relationship compatibility, Libras and the traits of their power color make them pair well with Aries, Virgo, and Leo, who share their passion, fire, romance, and desire for perfectionism.
Scorpio (Zodiac Colors)
Date: October 23 – November 21
Scorpio is the eighth of the twelve zodiac signs, symbolizing the color black and the element of water.
This might seem like an odd match, and the result is that Scorpio sign-bearers are mysterious, enigmatic, elegant, exciting, compelling, and creative.
But like every power color, there are negative aspects. And for the color black, this means that Scorpios can also be hard to understand, unpredictable, secretive, resentful, domineering, arrogant, and intimidating.
As a result of their mysterious and experimental nature, Scorpios can be good psychologists and psychiatrists, sex therapists, auditors, engineers and innovators, inventors, detectives/police inspectors, morticians, and forensic psychologists or pathologists.
Scorpios might find themselves in, or drawn to, relationships with Virgo, Pisces, and Gemini. This can be due to the meticulousness of Virgos, the intuitiveness of Pisces, and the intellect of Geminis.
Date: November 22 – December 21
Sagittarius, the ninth zodiac sign, is linked to the element of fire and the power color purple.
This makes Sagittarius sign-bearers passionate, philosophical, freedom-loving, adventurous, and open-minded. Purple is also associated with creativity.
However, due to the adventurousness and open-mindedness of Sagittarius, people who are Sagittarians can also be indecisive, self-indulgent, impulsive/compulsive, unfocused, impatient, and overly accommodating.
These traits and also the creativeness associated with the power color purple can lead Sagittarians to career paths in teaching, architecture, entrepreneurship, missionary or charity work, philanthropy, motivational speaking, and travel.
As a result, people who are Sagittarius can be compatible with Aquarius, Gemini, and Aries, who share similar power color traits in humanitarianism, passionate leadership, and communication.
Date: December 22 – January 19
Symbol: Sea Goat
Capricorn, which is the tenth zodiac sign, has the power color gray. Gray is symbolic of neutrality, balance, practicality, discipline, determination, cautiousness or prudence, and reservedness. The element of earth also makes them grounded and stable.
On the other hand, however, the power color gray can mean indecisiveness, lack of adventure, pessimism, dullness, and being overly cautious.
Powered by practicality, discipline, and determination associated with the color gray, Capricorns might be drawn to careers in science, law, education, computer programming, coding and developing, accountancy, analytics, and management.
Relationships for Capricorns involve zodiac signs such as Virgo, Taurus, and Cancer, which have the emotional capacity to tolerate the practical and disciplinary nature of Capricorns.
Date: January 20 – February 18
Aquarius, the water-bearer and eleventh sign of the zodiac, is associated with the power color blue. Blue, like water, represents fluidity and adaptability, similar to air.
And Aquarians are known for being open-minded, honest, inventive/innovative, independent, free-thinking, and humanitarian.
Similar to water, Aquarians can be unpredictable, rebellious, and quick to anger. They can also be absent-minded or detached (unemotional), impatient, secretive, neglectful, and unfocused.
But due to their independent, innovative, and free-thinking disposition, Aquarians tend to make great activists, environmentalists, teachers, scientists, social workers, artists, actors, and musicians.
They are also into the zodiac signs Leo, Sagittarius, and Gemini. Leos can help to counterbalance the absent-mindedness of Aquarians, while Sagittarians and Geminis share similar traits in being open-minded and adaptable.
Date: February 19 – March 20
Color: Light Green
Pisces, the twelfth and final sign of the zodiac, embodies light green as its power color. This color makes Pisces sign-bearers sensitive, imaginative and artistic, compassionate, selfless, unworldly, sympathetic, gentle, and kind-hearted.
On the opposite side, however, Pisces can be gullible, idealistic/escapist, lazy, vague, weak-willed, indecisive, and irresponsible.
As a result of their power color and zodiac traits, Pisces are into careers of expression, such as art, photography, music, writing, or acting.
However, they can also become nurses and doctors, therapists, social workers, charity workers, psychics, and recruiters.
People who are Pisces might find themselves in relationships with people who are Scorpio, Taurus, or Cancer, due to sharing traits in sensitivity, intuition, kind-heartedness, and compassion.
Now that you know your power color, did you discover something new about yourself? And did you identify with any personality traits, behavioral traits, or life choices that were described?
You can use your power color to understand what you desire/need in life, as well as make guided decisions, big and small – whether it’s in the form of a sign to do something, your chosen career and relationships, or the simple design or fashion choices you make every day.
Power colors can be philosophical and spiritual, representative of your outward energy and how others perceive you.
They can also have a direct effect on your mood, based on the colors you choose to surround yourself with.
Though you might have discovered that your favorite color happens to be your power color. But if it isn’t, there is nothing wrong with identifying with another power color that is not related to your zodiac sign.
Finally, find the power color that best suits your energy and embrace it!
