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.

More about pink

The word pink is derived from the Danish term pinck oogen, which translates as half-closed eyes or small eyes, a clear reference to the appearance of the dianthus flower. Unbelievably, the word pink —referring to a color — was not used until the end of the 1700s, and not in general use until the 1800s.

The Urban Dictionary says: “In good health. In the 1500s pink meant “the embodiment of perfection,” but the current idiom (in good health) dates only from about 1900”.

The Grammarist says: “In the pink is an English idiom that means to be at the peak of health, to be in perfect condition. The expression in the pink to mean to be at the peak of health goes back to the 1500s when the word pink did not refer to a color.”
