Lucky and unlucky colours for the charming, friendly and creative Libra

A cardinal air sign, Libra natives are intelligent individuals, who value partnership, unity and beauty above all. Owing to these traits, aesthetically pleasing pastels are considered the lucky colours for Libra, while bold and warm hues could prove unlucky and bring out the worst in them.

Colours play a big role in influencing zodiac signs’ moods, behaviour patterns, and personality in astrology. Naturally, every sun sign is governed by a particular hue which brings luck, peace, love and good fortune. The absence of these colours or the presence of some unfavourable ones may invite ill luck or obstacles.

Individuals born between 23 September and 22 October are governed by the sun sign Libra. The zodiac sign falls in the seventh place on the wheel, which is very close to the centre. This is the first indication that Librans values balance more than anything. Secondly, the sign is represented by a pair of weighing scales and thirdly, it is associated with the Greek deity Themis, who is also known as the ‘Lady of Justice’. Hence, Librans are usually fair under all circumstances and often branded indecisive.

Ruled by the planet Venus, which stands for love and money, Libra natives want it all: an active social life, a high-flying career, monetary happiness and overall contentment. They are active, outdoorsy, charming and highly motivated individuals. The Libran energy is described as masculine and generally, their personalities go along very well with soft pastels and light colours.

The lucky colours for Libra represent the sign’s eclectic and magnetic persona dominated by elegance and style.

Aesthetically pleasing and equally attractive as well as enigmatic, this pastel shade speaks to the art-loving Libran soul. Lavender is a colour belonging to the same colour palette as pink and hence, brings similar luck and power to Libra natives. It fills them with a sense of self-worth, empowerment and confidence. Hence, this sign is encouraged to wear lavender or include it in their home decor.

A warm colour representing the qualities of boldness and assertion, red often symbolises negative emotions like rage, impulsiveness and brashness. All of these qualities are opposite to this soft-spoken sign’s core temperament. Hence, they should avoid red, especially for important and auspicious occasions.

Another strong hue, hue dominates the entire colour scheme. Black is associated with darkness and extreme negative emotions, which could spell misfortune, lack of social connections, dullness and doom for the Librans. It should also be avoided — be it in clothing or home furnishings — as it might encourage isolation.
