Aura Colour Meanings

The colour of your aura is determined by your emotions, physical surroundings, your spiritual work and items in the room.

For example, crystals can magnify or change the colours of an aura.

When you first start out trying to see or sense an aura, you may find you see wavy lines around someone or a kind of fuzzy air, translucent colours and/or an inconsistent border (2-3 inches around the subject).

If you would like to learn more about how to see or sense an aura, please check out this post.

If you see a translucent aura, this is normal! It is the collection of all colours. However, if you see a rainbow aura, this is a big sign that the person is a healer and can also mean that they are a star person (someone who is in the first incarnation on Earth).

If there is a grainy/dirty overlay around the aura, such as brown or grey, this can signify the person is insecure and/or blocking energy coming to them.

Below are some of the colours you may see and their meanings


Light or Pale Yellow: High levels of psychic and spiritual awareness; optimism and hopefulness; positive.

Bright Yellow: Boundaries may be a challenge, fear of losing control, respect, power.

Yellow aura people tend to be analytical, logical and very intelligent. They do well in careers that involve teaching and study and make brilliant inventors and scientists. However, they can have a tendency to work too hard and can easily become a workaholic putting their work above personal relationships.

They can be overly critical of themselves and others and due to this are prone to mental health issues when too stressed. They tend to think with their heads, rather than listen to their hearts when faced with difficult decisions but are not afraid to experiment with different ideas and concepts.

People who have a yellow aura tend to be confident public speakers who inspire others. However, they can seem a little eccentric with unusual interests and hobbies.


Deep Red: Grounded, realistic, active, strong will-power, survival-oriented.

Muddied Red: Anger

Clear Red: Powerful, energetic, competitive, sexual, passionate

Red aura people tend to be enthusiastic, energetic and adventurous.

Red aura people can be quick to anger, but they can also be very generous with their time and energy when called upon for help. They also tend to be direct and are not afraid to make their point of view heard. Normally, what you see is what you get with someone with a red aura.

They are normally strong in body and mind and do not succumb to physical or mental illness easily. They tend to enjoy physical activity and excel in sports.

People with a predominant red aura can become bored easily and need to move on to different interests, projects and relationships. Therefore may leave lots of unfinished ventures in their wake!

However, they have a very competitive nature and the need to succeed will drive them towards great success in life. Once they find a project or venture they enjoy, they will stick to it and can become extremely wealthy.

A pink aura can also indicate a natural healer and someone with strong psychic abilities. They are also very creative and can make great writers.

Orange-Red: Confident and creative

Orange-Yellow: Creative, intelligent, detail-oriented, perfectionist

Violet: This is the most sensitive and wisest of colours. Reveals psychic power, strong intuition and artistic senses

Lavender: Imaginative, visionary, daydreamer

Purple aura people tend to be highly psychic and very sensitive and intuitive. They love to learn and never stop exploring new subjects and areas that interest them.

They tend to have a small circle of very close friends who are respected, admired and loved. They connect deeply with animals and nature as they can sense emotions and feelings strongly. They tend to take in stray animals as their loving nature makes it hard to turn them away!


Soft Blue: Peaceful, truthful, intuitive

Bright Blue: Clairvoyant; highly spiritual; generous; on the right path

Dark Blue: Fear of the future; fear of self-expression; fear of facing or speaking the truth

Totally blue auras are very rare but can show up in people with very strong personalities.

Blue aura people tend to be excellent communicators as they are persuasive and charismatic, plus highly intelligent and very intuitive. They have brilliant organisational skills and can motivate and inspire others. They make great writers, poets and politicians.

They need to watch taking on too much and becoming a workaholic as then they neglect their personal relationships.

Truthfulness, direct communication and clarity are important to them in their relationships.


Gold is the colour of enlightenment and divine protection. When seen within the aura, it says that the person is being guided by their highest good.

Bright Gold: Spiritual energy and power activated and awakened; an inspired person.

Dark brownish Gold: A student, or one who is straining at studying; perhaps feeling fatigued or stressed

Gold aura people appreciate the finer things in life. They love to entertain and enjoy company and being the centre of attention.

They are normally very attractive individuals and like attention and affection and tend to have a lot of friends. They also give their time, energy and love generously and are wonderful listeners making that person feel important and loved.

They also tend to be fiercely independent and extremely reluctant to ask for help from anyone.


Silver is the colour of abundance, both spiritual and physical. Lots of bright silver can reflect plenty of money, and/or awakening of the cosmic mind.

Bright Silver: Receptive to new ideas; intuitive; nurturing

Dark Gray: Fear is accumulating in the body, with a potential for health problems, especially if grey clusters are seen

Silver aura people are normally exceptionally gifted and how they use their gifts is their life lesson.

They tend to be very sensitive, intuitive, and psychic, but also practical and use their spiritual understanding in very practical ways.

They relate easily to different people and are found in careers such as teaching, mentoring or counselling roles.

They tend to attract many admirers, but they choose their friends and lovers very carefully.

Success and good luck seems to come easily to those with a silver aura!


A black aura pulls energy into it and consumes the light. This can indicate entities within a person, past life pain and unreleased grief.

It can also mean that the person has yet to forgive someone and this can lead to health problems.


A white aura is a pure state of light. This normally indicates a new, not yet designated energy in the aura. It can also indicate purity, truth and angelic qualities.

White sparkles or flashes of white light can mean that angels are nearby or that the person is pregnant or will be soon.
