Purple Is The Aquarius Color

Filed in Aquarius

Aquarius color

Call it indigo or violet if you like but the Aquarius color is purple. It’s the hue of higher vibe transcendent genius and they look damn good in it.

Purple was historically worn by the ruling classes, as the actual purple dye was ludicrously expensive. It was the color of Ancient Rome’s leaders, with praetorian guards swishing about in huge purple cloaks to signify their boss status. To be “born to the Purple” meant aristocratic lineage. Purple was power.

At the dawn of the 20th Century, the early feminists adopted purple as their own, most likely perfectly aware of the implied seizure of power. The Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Color Purple (written by Aquarius Alice Walker) further secured the link between progressive politics and purple.

By the Sixties, it was a part of the counter-culture. Jimi Hendrix wrote Purple Haze and the band Deep Purple pioneered Heavy Metal.

Somewhere in this timeline, purple merged with The Age Of Aquarius and became the Aquarius color. How?  The long-standing association between Aquarius and amethyst – the purple crystal – is a clue.  Purple-Indigo-Violet is also an auric frequency, one that Uranian type people tune into, consciously or not.

Here are some gorgeous examples of Aquarians in their ultra color! From top to bottom: Harry Styles, Oprah, Kelly Rowland, Emma Roberts, and Zsa-Zsa Gabor.

I look fab in pink, love red, yet if there’s one colour I wish never to see again except on a flower it is purple.

I disagree as a Scorpio rising/arian sun, apparently deep purple and blue are my best colours as they contrast my dark brown hair and pale skin. Fergie can’t wear it well because she’s too trashy and not NEARLY classy enough for purple 😉

I’m extremely sensitive to color & for some reason, I’ve been feeling almost allergic to all shades of purple. I look at something purple & get this heavy blanket of depression falling over me, I look away & I’m just fine. I can’t account for it. I liked purple just fine before. I’ve actually been giving things away because they’re purple. (Saturn in Aquarius girl) I have the Sun & Mercury in Libra & have received more complements when wearing pink than any other color besides apple green. And they were always surprised comments, along the lines of “you look… Read more »

My Aquarian daughter loves purple, the lighter shade and I try to work it with aqua blue, works so well with her blue eyes, of course. My Libran daughter adores pink, as do I, a strong clear pink, nothing wishy washy or pale about it though. I also love purple, it seems a bit more grown up somehow and works with my green eyes, but somehow I always end up with a lot of pink in my wardrobe. They may be only little (5 and 4) but their preferences come through loud and clear. So I had to decorate their… Read more »

That’s funny, when I was very young purple was my favorite color. As a teenager I painted my bedroom a fairly dark purple and to this day it is one of the only eyeshadow colors I wear. Also another Aqua at work (same birthday as me, different year) only wears purple eyeshadow, too.

My Great-Grandmother wore purple, as did her friends, all were in their 80`s….so I always think of it as an ” elderly ” color

I love purple, all shades and hues but it looks horrible on me, which is a shame with the aqua rise! So I take the fetish out in other areas!

Its always been a fave and of many other Pisceans I know. Met a couple of Aquas who really dig it too, both because of Amethyst. I think of Aqua as bright electric blue, Pisces as sea green and mauve.

I see purple too Mystic when Im particularly engaged.
The other colour I see and its always out of the corner of my eye is a bright bluey white, really intense bright flashes. Leprechauns methinks..

I’ve been told I am an honorary Aquarian because of Uranus conj. Sun and so much crap going on in 10th house. I’m Libra Sun though. My hair is violet. I never wear pink except as an accent.

Purple will be making a come back in the fashion world for the next few years because of a revived interest in the 80’s when purple was big.

Purple has always been a fave of mine and I have Aqua rising. I look damn good in it too, if I may say so myself.

i was obsessed with purple in my early twenties then went right off it for many years. Bought a pair of purple sneakers last year and i’m obsessed again. Can’t get enough of purple, but it has to be a deep purple, nothing wishy-washy and definitely not lilac. 🙂

Start wearing purple wearing purple
Start wearing purple for me now
All your sanity and wits they will all vanish
I promise, it’s just a matter of time…

I know you since you where at twenty, and I was twenty,
but thought that some years from now
a purple little little lady would be perfect
for dirty old and useless clown…

When I was looking for new glasses to wear on my face this year, every store seemed to be pushing purple…different shades, but each person would look at me and go, ‘Have you considered purple.’

I picked a clear red and then looked around me 6 weeks later and all the old ladies are wearing red glasses…argh foreshadowing.

In fashion terms, pale pink used to be considered a neutral colour, was told once cos I wear it a bit…dusty pink suits my colouring & its subtle & I love it….tho baby pink or hot pink I will happily leave to my almost 3yr old. Purple does my head in, cos I love it but its just got too many not quite right attachments…I always associate electric blue with Aquarians & purple with Saggys.

well cap here who loves Purple, indigo and deep red shades…. and looks good in all the shades of purple…
Half my clothes are all shades of Purple….. and the funny thing is that my closest friends also love the purple colours and they are a Sag, Leo and a scorp… so not so sure about your theroy Mystic…. maybe it may have to do with another part of our scopes…
either way more of the beautiful colours and less of the bland grey that we have just had for winter.

likewise, but mostly not for clothes. i have my eye on a “hot purple” bedspread made from sari borders since sunday… but it’s not a colour I’d think to wear. oh dur i did buy a bangle in that shade after not buying the bedspread.

I’m aqua sun, rising, mercury, mars….. etc and while i like the idea of purple it’s not a colour i’d wear. my libran ex flatmate had it as a theme in our bathroom and that’s a enough purple to keep me not to ever want to wear it. i don’t mind it if it’s that darker petrol colour (who said that thing about the urban colours?) but otherwise i stick pretty much to black with the odd bit of sliver, white, aqua, green or maybe red.

I rekkon “colours” are related to Jupiter sign. But purple is color of electricity and Uranus rules that so yeah very Aqua.

gotta say I do love purple and it does suit my skin tone and eyes heaps but i don’t wear it much, just don’t have a lot of it in my wardrobe prob cos it’s quiet intense.
I saw purple once when someone with reiki hands was touching me.
And I had a dream just the other night of a fashion designer who had a funky short blonde bob and some divinely indigo soft flower petals in her hair. I was ooing and aahhhing over them and touching them delicately. eeeenteresting

Wow, like NO, no way, are Aquarians the only purple people.

Yes aquaquaqua, us aquarians are definitley worth the expensive colours….ha ha!!! Sorry.
Is just beacuse we have Amethyst as our birthstone that we should like purpley hues? I hav always loved jacaranda trees, grew up in Brisbane which is full of them. Love the way they make a lilac carpet underneath them.
Although, I must say I have been into cool yellows at the moment.

Yes Bris is gorgeous with jacas atm. We have a huge jacaranda tree in the front garden – love sitting on the verandah looking out into the purpleness and over the purple carpet (and it’s covering up the tinder dry grass).

i think aquas are indigo, i love indigo, and i recently had a discussion with someone who says her bridesmaid’s dresses are lapis lazuli colour which she said is purple but id imagined was deep deep blue, i love blue but i struggle with purple, it needs to have masses of blue in it, not red. and i dont think fergie is really blooming in that colour. isnt it historically like a really rare dye and o its a colour associated with wealth and the monarchy?

No I don’t think only aquas can / should wear purple. In fact, most of the aquas i know absolutely never wear purple. BUT they are v good at the tricky colors – the ones i call acid yellow, corpse green, smog grey, petrol blue..urban colours. Most of the Aquas i know have a low-glamour but high fashion / interplanetary dress-sense – more Viktor and Rolf than Tom Ford or D&G. Not to say that purple wouldn’t necessarily look good on them though. Purple, fuchsia, canary yellow, indigo, all the jewel colours are v much in vogue right now, which… Read more »

Blue Blue Blue… and hot pink for fire fighting. All the other colours only exist to contrast blue – in any shade – have been that way my WHOLE life. Actually changed teams in the middle of a school sports day from yellow to blue (even though I was still wearing yellow) because I couldn’t stand not being in blue. I think I was about eight at the time…

But hot pink and black for when I’m feeling sexy- you betcha!

If you go by colour charts, winters look fabulous is a vibrant royal purple. I know that the clear purple out currently looks great on me, as do the aquamarines/blues/emerald greens. Jewel tones basically, from the blue end of the spectrum. Purple itself is a regal colour, used by many monarchies. I know my Aqua mad ma doesn’t look good in true purple, but can wear the lighter versions – lilacs etc (she’s a summer) basically the pastal spectrum… Growing up in Brissie I associate purple to Jacaranda flowers which herald exam time – and therefore holidays coming up soon!… Read more »

Hey postmodscorp I just don’t understand the colour charts you mention, as I am supposed to be a winter; yet I detest purple and lilac though I love jacaranads and lavendar plants etc. Just do not like the colour on me.
