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.
2023 Viva Magenta
The Pantone color of the year for 2023 is Viva Magenta a rich magenta color.
The seven colors of the rainbow or spectrum are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.
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
Anyone familiar with chakras will know that the Viva Magenta color is related both the Root (red) and Crown (violet Chakra.
Astrologically the colors are related to the signs.
The 2023 color of the year seems to be associated with the sign of the the Fish, Pisces.
Pisces is associated with many things one of which is that it is a sign of intuition and blending in.
Saturn is shortly going into Pisces to stimulate this color .
Interesting ly Saturn was in Aquarius for the Veri Peri 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.
I wonder how the choice for this year’s Pantone Color of the Year will unfold during the next 12 months for the world.
