Numerology of Colours

In this post, we will be exploring the numerology of colours, and this is about how we can use numerology to choose the right colours for us.

Most of us will agree that we all have a preferred favourite colour, or a choice of a few colours. When we wear or carry our favourite colours with us, we tend to feel good or look good. It helps us to develop a sense of confidence, or perhaps a feeling of peace.

And in other instances, we may totally avoid some colours, if not, least preferred. Do you sometimes feel uneasy wearing certain types of colour clothing? I generally stay away from green, for instance, and I don’t know why, but that’s just me. 

How about you? Which colour is your favourite, and which colour do you avoid? 

For your favourite colour, the way you feel positively to it means that you have a connection between your vibrational energies with that of the colour’s vibration.

Choosing the colours that align with our vibrational energies will help to improve our well-being. And it will be beneficial to know the meaning of the colours.

But how can we find out what is our vibrational energies?

Through numerology, we can determine this by looking at our numbers from our personal numerology chart.

And from our numerology chart, we can work out our personal year, month, and day. And from there, we will be able to work out the best colour for the day in sync with our numbers.

A more generalised way is by looking at the universal day chart, which is simply using the current date. The universal day chart looks at the day’s energy, and we can use it to determine the colour of the day.

Besides looking at dates, we can also look at what colour is suitable for us based on our name. And we do this by converting the alphabets in our name into numbers.

If you would like to find out which colour is suitable for you, do stay with me and read further on the below sections.

Lucky Colours

Let’s begin by understanding which colour is in sync with which number vibration.
Do you know how to calculate your numbers? You can refer to the below two posts that I have written earlier if you need some help with this.

But in short, take your date of birth and reduce it to a single digit to determine your Character Root Number (a.k.a. Life Path number).

Taking a date of birth 31 May 1987 as an example, the calculation will be 3 + 1 + 0 + 5 + 1 + 9 + 8 + 7 = 34 = 3 + 4 = 7.

The Character Root Number will be the number 7.

From the calculation you have done for yourself, you can find out the meaning of your lucky colour in the sub-sections below.

Lucky Colours by Name

You can find out what is the colour that represents your name.

RedOrangeYellowGreenBlueIndigoViolet or PurplePinkGold
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

Let’s take my name, Richard, as an example. It works out to be 9 + 9 + 3 + 8 + 1 + 9 + 4 = 43 = 4 + 3 = 7. The sum of the name Richard converted into its respective number has a number vibration of 7, which means Violet or Purple is the representative colour.

Hence, the name suggests royalty, nobility, luxury, and power. And there is a sense of mystery too.

And when we look at the individual alphabets, it translates to the following colours:

R – Gold

I – Gold

C – Yellow

H – Pink

A – Red

R – Gold

D – Green

Gold – 3

Yellow – 1

Pink – 1

Red – 1

Green – 1

The name, therefore, suggests success, given that the colour Gold appears 3 times. And it is supported by the other colours too.

But what is missing is the colour orange, blue, and indigo. Communication is not my strong point and may be due to the absence of orange or the number 2.

And just one point to highlight to you before we wrap up this section. When you are calculating the above for yourself, use your full name given to you from birth.

Lucky Colour by Date of Birth

Finding the lucky colour using the date of birth can be done by reducing the date to a single digit. And this was illustrated in the earlier section where we use the birthdate 31 May 1987 as an example.

But some colours may be more active on different days, and this is where we can calculate our personal day number to find out.

The Character Root Number for 31 May 1987 is the number 7, which translates to Violet or Purple. Let’s assume the day today is 2 Jun 2021, and the personal day number will be number 4. So green is the personal day colour.

To find out the personal day number:

  • First determine the personal year number. And this is calculated as 31 May 2021, which works out to be 3 + 1 + 5 + 2 + 2 + 1 = 5.
  • The next step is to determine the personal month number. And it can be calculated by adding the current month number (6 in this example) to the personal year number. This works out to be 5 + 6 = 11 = 1 + 1 = 2.
  • Lastly, add the current day (2 in this example) to the personal month number. And this works out to be 2 + 2 = 4.

Coincidentally, the universal day number is also 4 in this example and this is calculated by reducing the current date to a single digit. This works out to be 2 + 6 + 2 + 2 + 1 = 13 = 1 + 3 = 4.

Hence, the colour green on 2 Jun 2021 will be highly beneficial for a person born on 31 May.

  1. Hi there,

    Wow, this is awesome, I love colors, and I always wanted to know the meaning of the color I am attracted to most. I love orange, but I didn’t see you mentioned what it symbolizes? I also like black, which I know it’s not a color. I’ve heard that black absorbs energy and if we are in a bad mood, it’s not a good idea to wear black clothes that day. Have you heard about this? 

    Thank you for this excellent post!

    • Hi Daniella, thanks for reading this post. Orange is mentioned in the post. You might have missed it. It is mentioned under the section on Lucky Colour for Number 2. You can check it out again. Let me know if there is anything unclear, and I am happy to help. 🙂

      I have not researched into black yet. I will be glad to do so and update this post in the future. 🙂

  2. I really enjoyed this post and worked out my character root number and my name number. I worked it out with just my first name and then with my full name. Which is the correct way? When using my full name I was predominantly blue – when I read the full description it was like someone had written about me personally – spot on! However, I was missing the color pink which symbolises compassion. I consider myself to be a compassionate person, but perhaps I’m wrong! A very interesting and entertaining coffee break. Thank you.

    • Hi Jane, thank you for the positive feedback!

      The correct way is to use your full name given at birth. And thanks for this point. I should mention this in my post too.

  3. Hi, I’ve just gone through this wonderful information article about Numerology of colors. Here I agree with you 100% that when we wear our best colors, we feel good and look great. I personally like dark colors and the funny part is that even if I want to consider other colors, I get stuck on which ones will look best on me probably because I’m a man or just because I lack proper knowledge of the best colors to wear. Navy blue is my favorite. Learning about Numerology in this post has opened my eyes and I now have a better knowledge and understanding about mixing colors. Thank you so much for sharing this helpful information, I’ll also be sharing your post too, to spread the word.

    • Hi Kokontala, thank you for reading. Just like you, I used to shy away from the more feminine colours. But across time, I have slowly begun to adapt to the different colours. Thank you for helping to share this knowledge!

  4. Success don’t just happen accidentally, we need to pull our inner energy many a times to arrive at it. Our contributing factor is feeling good from inside, it helps our confidence and also our vibrational energy. I very well agree with you that things as little as selecting the right colour for the day will affect us. Thank you for this helpful way of applying numerology

    • Hi Parameter, thank you very much for your inputs. It is important we feel good from the inside, and indeed, the little things like selecting the right colours will contribute towards that. Have a nice day!
