Color is such an important part of our daily lives. Many of the choices we make each day are based on our attraction to colors. Colors affect our moods and influence our feelings.
Colors have metaphysical properties, too. We use colors in healing and manifestation by intentionally choosing the specific colors we need. We might wear a specific color, burn a candle of a specific color, or even eat a food of a specific color.
Each color has particular properties to support healing, or the manifestation of particular energies. For instance, yellow supports confidence, green supports health and wealth, and red supports romance.
The seven chakras (energies centers) along the spine are each associated with one of the colors of the spectrum. We can use colored gemstones, or even the color of our clothing, to help support specific chakras.
Many tarot readers rely on the colors of the cards to give them information and add depth to the reading.
Beyond making our world more beautiful, colors are tools we can use to aid us in healing, divination and manifestation.
Here is a list of some generally accepted properties of color. You can add energy to your life simply by choosing the color you want to support and manifest in your life. Find your color in a candle that you burn while focusing on your desires. Find your color in the clothing and gemstones you wear, or the food you eat. Find your color in flowers. Use colored lights to bathe in healing energy.
If you want spiritual healing, unconditional love, or clear communication, choose blue.
If you want health and wealth, choose green.
If you want psychic development and spirit communication, choose purple.
If you want confidence, choose yellow.
If you want romance, choose red or pink.
You can use any color for any purpose, as long as it feels right to you.
There are many methods of tarot reading that rely heavily on interpreting the colors of the cards.
Some tarot decks are black-and-white only; they are to be colored by the tarotist, as part of the process of learning the cards and bonding with the deck.
With so many tarot decks available, we often chose our favorite decks based on our feelings about their colors.
As an exercise, ask a question of the cards. Pull one card as an answer. Rather than interpreting it as you normally would, simply looking at the colors of the card and make an interpretation based on how those colors make you feel.
Does this seem like a valid way to work with the cards for you? Do you consider card color when you do readings in general? Do you prefer a deck with a uniform color, or do you like a deck that uses a variety of color?
You determine the role that color plays in your tarot practice!

I had such a wonderful time on my Northeastern Tour last August. The only frustration was I didn’t have time on the calendar to accommodate everyone who wanted to host a psychic house party with me! In 2015 I will remedy this by scheduling two trips. I will be in Connecticut from March 20th to March 29th, and again from August 7th to August 23rd.
Psychic house parties with me will be available in Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts during those trips. Please give me a call or send me an email if you would like to reserve your date now.
While I am always available to serve you with phone and Skype readings, the opportunity for in-person readings is limited. If you live in the Northeast, don’t miss your chance to meet with me in person in 2015!
Please join us for a 75-minute-long webinar about the Four Elements (Earth, Air, Fire and Water) and the Minor Arcana of the Tarot. This class will cover the powers and properties of the four elements, and how they relate to the four suits in tarot. You will learn ways of interpreting the pip cards and the court cards based on their elemental association. You will learn ways of designing and performing tarot spreads based on the four elements. This class is appropriate for beginners, and readers of all levels.
Join your local tarot friends for food, fellowship and study. Our focus for this meeting will be tarot-reading techniques. Bring your favorite tarot spread and your cards. We will share and practice different techniques, and observe readings-in-action.
