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.
wow I took an aura color quiz and apparently my primary color is Yellow and my secondary color is Crystal
I relate to Yellow because of how free-spirited, playful and good-humored it is; but also Crystal because of the shyness/solitude/unconventional rather than logical way of thinking, and the likeness towards film/literature

SOMETHING I’VE NOTICED ABOUT THE COUPLES OF SOUTH PARK
There seems to be a pattern when it comes to couples in South Park. Person A wears a secondary color which is a combination of the two primary colors Person B wears.
Here is the “main” couple of South Park, Stan and Wendy. Stan wears Red and Blue, and Wendy wears purple. In this couple we can also see a second color comparasin, with Wendy wearing yellow and Stan wearing brown. It could be said that yellow is a brighter version of brown, showing how Wendy is a more cheerful character than her counterpart.
This is the second most prominent couple in South Park, Craig and Tweek. Craig wears blue and yellow, and Tweek wears green. It seems as though the person wearing the two primary colors is usually the more emotionally repressed of the pair, and perhaps the duality represents two different sides of the character which only the person bearing their corresponding secondary color can put together?
Okay, so the two most canon couples in South Park share this color scheme pattern. But how can we apply this? Can this predict which couples in the future will become canon?
There is a lot of evidence throughout the show that this couple will eventually become canon one way or another. With Cartman’s sexual fixation on Kyle (the Imaginationland trilogy only being the most dastic example of this) and Kyle’s jealous nature (not only in season 20, but also in the episode “It’s a Jersey Thing” where Kyle fought agressively to protect him from a woman who tried to rape him) and feeling of responsibility (he’s almost always the one to save Cartman when he’s in over his head). The color scheme rule works here too, with Cartman wearing yellow and blue and Kyle wearing green. There is also a complimentary color scheme going on here, Kyle’s green and orange contrasting nicely against Cartman’s red and blue, symbolizing how they’re complete opposites and yet are most successful when they work together.
Now, just in case you guys think I just pulled some random thing I noticed out of thin air to show you my OTP is “canon” or whatever, let me show you this:
Eric Cartman and Heidi Turner also follow this pattern. Cartman wears yellow and blue, Heidi wears red and green. Notice how Cartman doesn’t wear red when he’s around her, because that would contrast with the green in a way that suggests conflict, which is something their relationship lacks. There is, however, a hint of orange in Heidi’s hat, which contrasts with Cartman’s blue and suggests that their relationship will eventually come into conflict - something interesting I’d like to point out here is that Heidi didn’t start actually wearing the hat until season 20, setting her apart from the background cast and establishing her as a foreground character much like Wendy. The inclusion of the hat symbolizes a redefining of her character as a powerful genious, but it also foreshadows the inevitable conflict. As much as Cartman tries to redefine himself as Eric, he won’t be able to escape his own character flaws, and this will eventually be the downfall of their relationship.
Now, just for fun, I’m going to see which other couples would fall under this pattern…
Clyde wears red and blue, Token wears purple. I’m not going to claim to know anything about their relationship, but according to their color schemes, they would make a very nice couple.
Professor Chaos wears blue and a little bit of red, Mysterion wears purple and green (green and red are complimentary colors) (it’ll be interesting to see how they interact in Fractured But Whole)
People didn’t want any more diversity, they didn’t want female characters out there
No, what they didn’t want was you replacing existing characters with women and minorities.
I don’t want miles Morales to be spiderman. I couldn’t give a fuck what danny glover says.
I would rather have arana.
I would rather have THE MAN WHO INSPIRED BATMAN
I don’t want to go “well, spider man was peter parker, but then they changed him to some black kid because of some mandate. he’s not really special in any way and is pretty much a cookie cutter spider man who’s black just to be black. ”
This is why Luke Cage was so well received: it wasn’t “well he’s superhero X, but he’s black now.”
It was “HERE’S FUCKING LUKE CAGE. He’s a hero. He’s a badass. And oh yeah, he’s black.” His color is secondary, it doesn’t matter to his identity or even brought up like it is all the time in the Miles Morales comics like that: “The new spiderman is black!” that is literally said in the comics.
Nobody gave a shit about making Fury black because everybody knew why:
They wanted Samuel L Jackson to play him. It wasn’t skintone: it was the character and personality that drove the change.
soulmate au where everyone can’t see color until they meet their soulmate and joly and bossuet meet and they can only see primary colors and they’re like ‘oh!!!! this is what everyone must be talking about!!’ and then one day boss is late to a meeting and joly meets chetta and he can see secondary colors too and he’s like ..freaking out and chetta is only seeing primary colors then and she’s like ‘ok so!! what the fuck.’ and then when boss shows up they all realize and they just 'oh shit!!!! we’re all soulmates!! holy fuck!!!!!’ and they’re all just grinning and joly is probably crying
In DNA class today we were studying genes, and I did a punnet square based on Sonic’s family (Underground) and predicted through the method I was taught his Father’s fur color, then did the same for any children by Sonic with Amy and concluded thus-
All of Sonic and Amy’s kids would likely follow the ‘blue’ color wheel, with most of them coming out purple, IF Blue is truly a dominant trait, which I think it is.
here’s how I did it.
Mother - purple- Br.
B = Blue - dominant
r = Red - recessive
Punnet square shows B r - BB(sonic), rr(Sonia), Br (other two children.) (I would assume Manic is a hererozygous due to maybe a gene that skipped a generation or far back in the gene pool. For this, it would be more complicated, and so I ruled him as Br for now. Since you need Blue and Yellow to make him, it’s still a combination of Dominant Blue gene. Much like Purple.)
According to this, the father HAD TO BE Br as well. Making him most likely a color on the blue color spectrum as well.
Blue color wheel -
Blue mixed with red makes purple, blue mixed withyellow makes green and yellow mixed with red makes orange. Purple, green and orange are considered secondary colors because they are created by mixing only two primary colors.
Red color wheel -
red-orange, red-violet, yellow-green, yellow-orange, blue-green and blue-violet
According to this data, we can deduce Sonic to be BB, homozygous Blue.
In conclusion, since red is recessive, we can deduce Amy to be a light pigment of red, deducing her to be rr.
punnet square BB and rr make Br’s all around, which would give Sonic and Amy’s children a possibility of being cyan, green, magenta, and violet.
This is just a rough estimate, but look at your fan kids and see if this matches XD
Silver wouldn’t be a direct descendant of Sonic or Amy either, one of Amy’s children would have to marry lighter and lighter to get him, ironically enough, lol!
(btw, since Amy is pink, she could be incomplete dominance by a Red and White colored parents, meaning she could be Rw and therefore, Silver a possibility, but in hindsight, it would take another ‘w’ allele in order for that to work, and that may take a few generations to express.)
Isn’t this interesting? Science side! Help me out here!
