Secrets of Color: Green

Our fourth color in the spectrum is green, and it stands in the center of the scale of seven. It is the meeting-ground between the thermal or heating and expanding colors of red, orange and yellow; and the electrical, contracting, cooling colors of blue, indigo, and violet. Green gives stability, endurance, and quietude. We are allowed much of it to look at the color in nature and to partake of as nourishment. Its action is to cool the blood and animate the nerves.

It belongs to the planet Saturn, whose metal is lead. Saturn rules the spleen which makes the white corpuscles of the blood. These harmonize the building and destroying going on in the human organism. So people with the luminous green of Saturn in their auras are the harmonizers and pacifiers of the world. They stand for social stability. If the green is dark and crude it tells that its owner, so concerned with the affairs of others, has become ‘green with envy’.

Green belongs to the fourth of the musical scale, F, whose melodies, usually in a minor key, sing of the melancholy—always associated with Saturn. Its stone is the emerald, which bestows peace of mind. Therefore whether through lights, colored glass or herbs— green gives a steadying and quieting influence. The green flag and lamp represent safety and speak of the guardianship of those in authority.
