Color Correspondences

As an artist I found color correspondences on this site to be so USEFUL, except they’re missing so much! The more I dug the more it seemed that way across the board. I didn’t feel for my practice that bright red and dark red evoked the same reaction, so I opted to make my own correspondence list. 

Every color on this doc was carefully selected to be representative of that “group” of colors, ie. bright pink or neon blue, with each color including an hex code that best sums up that color group. Color correspondences were taken not only from pre-existing materials, but from research (still ongoing) surrounding that color. This includes areas the color is found in nature, art or the world, as well as emotional responses evoked in myself.  Found Here (My Correspondences Doc, which includes many sources used for colors!)

For my practice this list is used across candles, fiber and art.

Awhile ago I saw @portentous-offerings make a post about how Marinette’s parents would react if they found out she was ladybug in response to an anon question, and she said something about her parents sending food with her on patrols to share with Chat Noir and it made me think about how touched he would be if parents who’ve never even met him were looking out for him when he barely even has one parent on his side at home.

application to the craft:

any correspondence available to you is relative to your own experience and understanding. there is nothing more powerful or useful than the natural correspondences that you personally assign to colors, or anything else. your own instinct should guide you first and foremost. of course, it can be helpful to have a reference point for guidance.
while all things are subject to opinion, there are some hard realities; having certain imagery or associations can help build, elaborate, or specify your use and attachment to different colors.

  • blood is red. is blood violence, or life?
  • the sun is yellow. is sunshine burning, or joy?

use colors to inform choices about candles, or any other material you use in your craft. use colors to create art for your intentions. use colors as a focal point in meditation.

colors can be incorporated into nearly every aspect of the craft. alternatively, colors can be taken from nearly every aspect of the craft. deciding when to use colors can be just as powerful as choosing when to not use colors.

absence is as valuable as presence. colors are as much a tool as a pendulum, and learning more about their individual energy and utility can help you expand your craft.

Okay, but imagine…. possessed champions instead of blights….

i’ve always wondered what it would be like to live inside the self titled album. how does color seep into a world that’s so devoid of it? sometimes i feel like the only color in my whole world is the hurricane of color raging behind my eyes.

if i find a way to calm the storm, i can paint a world of black and white.

but a hurricane is so easy to drown in.
