Electra in yellow

Yellow is a luminous color that attracts light, exuberance, and freshness. We can’t help but be drawn in by its perky cheeriness.

Electra in Yellow

As world history and Western symbology expert Michael Pastoureau noted in his book Yellow: The History of a Color, yellow shares a similar likeness to gold and honey, which epitomized pleasure and abundance in ancient cultures and religions. It also signified opulence since royals would wear it in their clothing. 

If you feel yellow represents you, you may be someone who enjoys the thrill of a mental challenge and a wide variety of intellectual interests. 

According to Nina Ashby, psychic and author of Simply Color Therapy, the color yellow is symbolized by the sun and represents joy, light, and mental positivity. Spiritually, the color yellow is also embodied by the solar plexus chakra—the seat of power and will.

Ashby points out yellow is associated with the mind and the logical, left side of the brain that organizes information.
