For most of us, color is a major part of our lives. Our holidays are marked with colors, such as Red and White for Valentines, Orange and Black for Halloween, and Green and Red for Christmas, and experts tell us how color effects our appetites (the color blue helps suppress hunger).
Regardless, we all have our favorite colors and we usually stick to them when we decorate our homes, our wardrobes, even the automobiles we drive, and especially when we crochet something for ourselves.
Me? I'm the queen of plain. I tend to like neutral colors like cream ... but I like details. The more detailed and neutral the color, the happier I seem to be.
But I've noticed something in the past couple of years ... I'm being driven to purple. Purple! Purple! Purple!
Now there's absolutely nothing wrong with purple. In fact, I'm told that purple is the new 'black' and everyone should have purple in their wardrobe. But what's driving me to it? Why not green, blue, orange, or yellow? They're great colors too, right?
Well, apparently, I've found my answer through colorstrology. It appears that Lilac is my birth color, and since lilac is part of the purple family, it's all now starting to make sense. When I visited the website www.colorstrology.com and looked up my birth month, it stated "...for the month of February [your color is] Sheer Lilac. Inspiring and imaginative, this color invokes the qualities of humanity and kindness." There's more to it, and it goes on to also say that I should wear it to "...enhance [my] spirituality and compassion."
So the next time you see a lady passionately ogling over purple fibers in your local yarn shop, don't worry. It might be me plugging into my spirituality, and I'll be compassionate enough to leave a few skeins behind. J
