Aura Color Meanings

Colors are an important aspect of aura reading. The most common question I hear about energy is “What color is my aura?” 

When you read someone’s aura, the colors you perceive are very subjective, meaning that you may see a different color than the next person. However the meaning that each person understands will often match up with what the next person sees or experiences. For example, I have been in situations where a group is practicing this particular skill, and the person in the center seems to have light pink, emerald green, and royal blue in their aura, depending on which partner was practicing. But every person practicing said that the color felt like a mother’s love. 

So here’s the take-away: it’s the emotion and frequency contained within the color that gives you the most information. 

You have your own relationship with colors. You have certain personal associations with colors, and this will influence how you engage with the frequencies of others and what colors you “see”. This is why it is important to get to know your own body and learn and understand your personal dictionary.

Now, with that said, there are some generalized, common “definitions” of colors, because humans have been seeing auras for centuries and across all cultures, and these meanings seem to hold true. Below is a description of the meanings different colors hold. When reading auras be sure to always trust your intuition.


This is a confusing color. There is nothing wrong with black in one’s aura. Black generally means one is shielding oneself from outside energies. This can also mean being unbalanced; one is hiding something or keeping secrets. A black ring usually indicates some form of abuse, adults who have not dealt with early abuse will carry this black ring till they are healed.


This comes in different shades. Gifted people have shades of blue in their aura. Intuitive people will show pale blue coloration within the purple bursting out like rays of sunshine, emanating from the heart outwards. A deeper blue can indicate loneliness. A very deep blue shows devotion, honesty and good judgment whereas muddier shades of blue indicates a domineering person or a tendency towards depression.


This color can indicate growth in a person. Seen around the head and with other colors emanating in combination, it indicates a person who is developing mentally, intuitively and organizing within. Brown by itself can indicate lack of energy, or one who has become “stagnant”.


Indicates lots of spiritual energy, in tune with oneself. Muddy gold means one has not really come to terms with one’s higher levels.


Usually seen around a thinker, an analytical person. Could indicate a “balanced” person. Intelligent people show this color around their heads.


Sympathetic to others, dependable and has healing abilities. Muddier shade could indicate jealousy- like “green with envy”.


Can indicate intuition and creativity. Silvery gray shows femininity while darker gray can mean secretiveness or physical imbalance. 


Bright orange means one is growing emotionally and paranormally. A dull shade means a person is unsure how to accept this growth. Muddy orange shows in a person with too much pride.


The color of love, and honesty. It also depicts the quieter side of an artistic and creative person. Dark pink may indicate immaturity or changes with one’s love life. Dull pink, however, watch out; Someone is lying.


The color of intuition, a deeper purple hue shows a strong- willed and passionate person. It can also reflect intense erotic imagination and being over-bearing.


A color of love or hate, strong emotions and a lot of energy. An intense red color, however, may indicate a person ready to fly off the handle.

When I come across a color in someone’s field, I ask myself a few questions:

  • What does it feel like to wear this color? How does my body feel with this color on my skin?
  • Who/What/Where does this color remind me of?
  • How do I want to respond to this color? What does this color inspire me to do?

These will give you a deeper understanding of how this energy is moving and how it reflects the person carrying it around.
