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.
