Colours have the capacity to either depress or exhilarate and play an important role in health and happiness.

{mosimage}Colours speak a powerful language of their own and have
remarkable effect on our environment, mood and health. Colours have the
capacity to either depress or exhilarate and play an important role in
health and happiness.

The colours are also linked with
three Gunas: Sattva, Rajas and Tamas. Blue, Green, White and light
colours are considered Sattvic. Rajasic colours are the bright fiery
reds, oranges and pinks and the inert, tamasic colours are all
dark-browns, navy, blue, green and black. The dark colours are best
avoided in a house, as they tend to sap your energy and cause
depression. It is preferable to use softer, lighter and more sattvic
colours throughout the residence.

Colours can be used to
yield positive results either as denoted by various planets having
rulership of different directions or as signified by different
ascending signs for individuals. Your favourable colours as per your
ascending sign or as per numerology can be used by way of clothes you
wear, bed sheets, curtains and upholstery you opt for. Your personal
preference about colours say a lot about your personality. For
instance, people who like red colour are usually strong and energetic.
Red is the colour of energy, restlessness and rashness. It is assigned
to Mars. Red colour indicates power and authority. Be careful not to
use opposing colours or colours of planets which are malefic according
to your personal horoscope.

Directions And Colours

{mosimage}Astrological
texts have assigned certain colours and direction to the planets.
Different shades and hues of these colours can be used for the
exteriors and interiors of the house-owners on the basis of their Janam-rashies or
moon-signs. Colours can also be used based on the directions
represented by various planets. For example, the North rooms of a
house, represented by planet mercury can be in light shades of green as
green is the representative colour of Mercury. North East rooms can be
in shades and tones of yellow like cream etc. and West can be in shades
of greys.

Different shades of green or yellow can be
used in study rooms, as these are colours signifying positively and
wisdom. Kitchen and dining rooms can use orange, as it is a social
colour with considerable drive and energy. Experiment with exciting and
different colours, such as yellow, red, and purple in areas that are
used for conversation. Stimulating colours help provide scintillating
conversation. Indigo, violet and blue are cool colours. They have a
calming, introspective influence. These colours can be used in
meditation and Puja rooms.

Red is a
passionate and fiery colour and should be avoided in the Bedroom as it
can lead to disturbed sleep and insomania. Red however can be used in
rooms that involve activity and excitement, such as home gymnasium or a
recreation room. Black is an intense, formal and sophisticated colour
and should be used with caution.

Softer
colours like peach, light pink, shades of blue are ideal for the
bedroom. Avoid strong colours such as red, orange, black and white or
black and red in the bedrooms. Use blue, violet or indigo colours for
the bedrooms of people who are by nature rash and aggressive. Blue is
also a good colour to be used for the rooms of children who are
hyperactive and aggressive in temperament.

As
per Vaastu, black should not be used on gates, doors and walls that
face East and South and red should not be used on gates, doors and
walls that face West and North.

Colours
can also be used to create moods and feel of a place. With the
appropriate use of colours, you can make a large room appears smaller
and more intimate, and a small room appear larger and more spacious.
White, greys, greens, lilacs or blue create a feeling of space while
red, pink or orange, gold, terracotta, brown or rich cream add
intimacy. Sunshine colours like yellow, gold, apricot or peach can
brighten up a dull and dark room, while cream and beige create a
restful atmosphere.

It is
important also that the room’s function must be taken into account. For
instance, the living room needs to project a welcoming and classy
ambiance. Whites, off whites & pastels are advised here. Bedrooms
are intimate, restful places. Tranquil, serene colours are imperative
here: cool blues, refreshing mauves, aquas, pale pinks are recommended
here. Children’s rooms are a great place for indulging your creativity.
Bright, happy colours in striking contrast are acceptable in the rooms
of small children.

Definite colours are recommended
for treatment of mental and physical disorders. The use of colours in
combination with Yoga and diet regulation gives marvelous results.
Properly used colours play an important role in health and can
contribute to stable mental and physical health and alleviate human
suffering. Colour therapists use solarised water kept in different
coloured glass bottles, exposing the body to coloured light and
meditation on coloured slides to balance the colour deficiencies in the
body.
