One way to bring the perfect balance into your home is to determine what paint colors work best with your astrology. It’s true—painting rooms in your home based on your birth sign can make you feel more connected to your home. Color experts agree that the psychology behind color can also impact your mood.
Washington, D.C.-based astrologer Nicole Darin shared expert advice with Vernada on how people can choose paint colors based on their astrological signs. Here are the colors you should be looking for when it comes to painting colors based on your astrology.
The Best Paint Colors Based on Your Astrology Sign
Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces
“The water element is all about emotions; it’s the ability to feel everything and flow with our emotional tides,” Darin says. “Water signs are incredibly intuitive and creative; they express their emotions often through the arts as musicians, artists, and performers because they feel everything deeply and are moved through art.”
Since water signs are known for their emotional depth and expressive nature, colors such as purples, corals, and pastels may be a good option for these signs. Water signs are often highly sensitive to their surroundings, so pastels provide a calming influence and promote relaxation, while purples representing introspection or corals conveying warmth can help them feel more connected to their space and enhance their emotional expression.
Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius
Air elements encompass are known for their ability to communicate, connect, and express their ideas and thoughts. To keep the space feeling as light and lively as the winds themselves, Darin recommends incorporating pale blues, yellows, and purples —hues that can be found in the natural world. But for those intellectual air signs craving a touch of depth, consider cooler shades of blue and purple with steel-gray undertones. This subtle elevation will keep things interesting without weighing down the airy atmosphere.
Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
“The earth element is what grounds us; it reflects the abundance of nature and is calming, grounded, and practical,” Darin says. This is why earthy tones like light whites, beige, and warm grays are best for these signs. They not only bring a sense of serenity to earth signs’ spaces but also blend seamlessly with any decor. Sage and forest green are versatile colors that can transport you straight into Mother Nature.
Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius
“Fire is the element of passion, energy, courage, and drive; it is the element that inspires confidence and shows up loud and proud,” Darin says. Perhaps the boldest signs of the zodiac, these signs would do best with bright, bold colors such as crimson, magenta, jewel tones, and gold. These colors are lively and attention-grabbing, just like fire signs’ dynamic presence. These colors allow fire signs to express their passions and emotions through their living spaces.
