Last month I promised you a formula to
determine your "Birth Color." Our
example uses December 13, 1930, as the birthday.
1930 = year 1+9+0=13 (1+3)= 4
12= month (1-2)= 3
13= day (1-3)= 4
Total 11 (1+)= 2
Use the following chart to find your color: 1 - Red; 2 - Orange; 3 - Yellow;
4 - Green; 5 - Blue; 6 - Indigo;7 - Violet; 8 - Pink; and other pastels; 9 -
All other colors.
Also, last month, I gave you a very brief
lesson on the things the color red represents.
Continuing that theme, here are some of the
meanings for yellow and blue, the other two
Yellow is a color of the intellect. It is the
sun’s rays. It is joyful. Yellow gives you a
lift –- as in spring, the early flowers, such
as how the Easter flowers lift your spirit.
Yellow, the most prominent color of the
spectrum, jumps out at you — for example, a
yellow caution light. In quilts using mixed
colors, the quiltmaker must use yellow sparingly
or it will interrupt the flow of the pattern.
Yellow is the color of creativity.
The other primary color, blue, is the color
of peace and harmony; it is the color of divine
inspiration. It is cooling, quiet and relaxing.
A blue light in a bedroom is said to induce
sleep. (Of course, if you go to sleep with the
blue light burning, it will stay on all night.)
However, you could use a quilt with prominent
blues to calm you into a deep sleep.
Our language makes full use of the color
blue: blue laws, blue Monday, blue moon, swear a
blue streak. And on the brighter side are
bluebloods and bluebirds.
