Pantone – the Color People

Color of the Year

Towards the end of each year, Pantone announces a new color for the forthcoming year.

The publication of the Color of the Year is highly anticipated, mainly by artists, graphic designers, trend setters and the New Age community.

Because this is such a big deal in the world of color, the color which Pantone chooses usually invokes the potential that each New Year heralds.

As someone who loves astro art and color in general I find this interesting.

2022 Veri Peri

Periwinkles

The Pantone color of the year for 2022 is Veri Peri a newly created periwinkle blue/purple.

Periwinkles are small purple/blue flowers in a hue that is called periwinkle.

Colors

Rainbow Colors

The seven colors of the rainbow or spectrum are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

Chakra Colors

The seven chakras are the root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye and crown chakras.

The chakras are related to the spectrum colors thus:

Red – root chakra

Orange – sacral chakra

Yellow – solar plexus chakra

Green – heart chakra

Blue – throat chakra

Indigo – third eye chakra

Violet – crown chakra

Crown Chakra

Anyone familiar with chakras will know that the Veri Peri color, although referred to as blue, is related the violet of the crown chakra which indicates the highest form of consciousness raising.

This bodes well for everyone who is on a conscious raising journey and even those people who aren’t who choose Veri Peri with which to surround themselves.

Aquarius

Astrologically the colors are related to the signs.

The 2022 color of the year seems to be associated with the sign of the Water Bearer, Aquarius.

Aquarius is associated with many things one of which is that it is a sign of the people this energy can be rebellious in the name of the common good.

Saturn is presently in Aquarius. It is well placed and in dignity as the ruler of the sign for the whole of 2022.

Color Theory and Healing

That color can influence us is well documented and many practitioners will use color to invoke emotional, spiritual and even physical healing.

2022 Potential

I wonder how the choice for this year’s Pantone Color of the Year will unfold during the next 12 months for the world.
