Using Color In Magik

The Significance Of Color
Think of your magik as a way of joining forces with the energy in nature. All energy vibrates with it's own sound or frequency, and it's own color. You want to compliment natures energy with your own, and with your choice of tools to represent the energy you are attempting to create. But how do you know what color goes with what energy? Like all things, it depends on how you want to approach or utilize the energy.
You can chose colors based on energy, on the chakra system, or your personal symbology. For instance, some people make associations based on culture or society. A good example of this is the use of color when associated with money or finances. Here in the U.S., we would associate green with money and finances. But in other countries that might not make sense as not everyone in the world has green currency.
I strongly recommend you write down your correspondences and keep them up to date. You want to create a consistency with your workings and maintain a balance. There will always be changes, but that's expected as you live, grow and learn.
Within my tradition, we use a color table based on the chakra system.
A Color Table
Below is a table of the varying ways to look at or represent color in your magikal exercises. This is just a guide based on our view, so don't take this as the only way to represent color in your magikal exercises. Research and practice for ourself to find the best combination for you.

Blue For working with pride, adoration, or dedication.
For masculine emotions, or energies. As a representation of the God.
For helping to find your way, spiritually searching.
Lighter blues generally indicate a beginning of a spiritual quest, a journey that will fill the 'missing' pieces of ones current existence.
Darker blues are typically used when one has their spiritual path and is continuing their education.
Pink For feminine emotions, or energies. As a representation of the Goddess. Different cultures represent love or the heart with different colors; a common American color would be pink for love or red for matters of the heart.
Black For overcoming hatred, negativity, depression and miserly. If used in a ritual for undoing, you can create energies to reverse these emotions. For undoing a spell that has been cast upon you, for creating confusion or stress (please remember what you put out you will get back. We only conduct spells of undoing when we're working a case with the police. We ask for confusion and stress within the body and mind of the criminal who the police are trying to capture. In this way, we hope the criminal will make a mistake in their actions that will help the police find the evidence, clues and information needed for an arrest and conviction.)
