Color Interpretation Key
The real nitty-gritty tools you’ll need to interpret your own aura.
Anatomy of the Aura
- Right side, picture’s left:
This is the person’s masculine energy. It is their expressive and
active side, how one projects oneself to the world. It is more
straightforward and physical, less emotional. Colors on this side may
have to do with physical changes, memories or goals. It is the energy
that is moving out. The recent or far past.
- Left side, picture’s right: This is the person’s
feminine side. This is their passive and receptive side. This side is
the emotional and imaginative side. This side is indicative of what a
person is projecting into the future. It is the energy that is moving
in. The person may not be aware of it yet though.
- Center, above the head: This is the energy of the
moment, usually in the colors that the person traditionally reflects.
The closer the colors are, the more intensely they are thinking about
or experiencing them. If there is a band of color stretching like an
arc over the top of the photo, this is indicative of a grand fear or
- Auras that expand out indicate spiritual expansion,
expressiveness, extroversion, social activity, desire for connection,
gregariousness, positive outlook, sense of adventure.
- Auras closer in indicate inward focus, sensitivity,
desire for solitude, meditation, peace, tranquility, or rest. This
could mean a need to express or move out.
The word chakra comes from the Sanskrit cakram,
which means "wheel." Chakras are supposedly the anchors of our spirit,
kind of like the ancient "houses of the soul". There are seven major
centers of energy and several minor ones in the hands and feet. They
are said to spin like vortexes and emanate color. Some systems of
belief say you are aligned when your chakras all spin clockwise, and
some say they should all spin like wheels of a gear system, in
We cannot "prove" that chakras exist, and in general the Western
world is not very accepting of them. They are intuitive, like color
meaning, and reside in the plane of the spiritual as well as the
physical. It should not surprise you that something so intuitive to the
psyche and soul be so elusive to the intellect. Nonetheless, modern
aura imaging tools can detect the presence of these energy vortexes and
translate their frequencies into color and direction of spin. In the
Coggins’ camera Polaroid photograph, only the heart and throat chakras
can be visible. In the new WinAura and Interactive computer programs,
it is possible to see all of the chakras along with the overall aura.
If you believe strongly in the importance of chakras, you should seek
this technology out.
Here are descriptions of the different chakras, from the top to the bottom.
||Experience. The color seen over your head is what you experience for yourself now. It’s the color that would best describe you.
|| Celestial. The color of the third eye reflects your spiritual
state. Your insights, celestial dreams and spirit guides also affect
||Communication. The color on the throat is traditionally energy
actively being expressed or held back. It could be a sore throat or a
||Empathy. The color of your heart is usually the force coming into your being.
||The color of the solar plexus is usually the center vibration of
your being. It is the most common center for suppressed desires and
||The energy coming from the sex area is what sparks all creative an
social impulses. It emanates sexual desires, but also feelings of love.
||The color of the root area is generally the energy of the physical
plane and the person’s common reality. This is where all impulses for
emotions begin, and it lies just below your belly button.
- Red is the color of the womb, the passion that begins life, red is the color of fire.
- Orange is the spark before the flame burns red. It
brings the bounty of harvest time. Before the moon or sun sets or rises
it lords over the horizon huge, orange.
- Yellow is a color almost brighter in mood than white,
and it can bring a smile to your life. "How rowdy," people say, "to
paint your house yellow!" It is the color of life energy, for the sun
begets all things.
- Green is in the growing grass, the reaching vines. It
changes light into energy. It thrives on the hard earth, nose to the
grindstone, soft loam and moss. It is the chosen color of money.
- Blue, the color of the deep sea. The clear sky, a tear
in the moonlight. Van Gogh was obsessed with blue, energy and power and
loss bled into canvas.

- White is blinding truth of light. It is pure in pigment
and light, like absence of sin and the joining of powers. It is the
coveted ivory, the awaited buffalo, the liquid eye, the moon.
- Lavender is clouds in deep space, flowers in the fairies’ glen.
- Pink is the color of sweet innocent babes, and the
secret places in both man and woman. Pink is, the nose of a soft
kitten, the rose of a shy admirer, the blush of a maiden.
- Turquoise, the Indian precious. It marries itself perfectly with silver, that cool, wise metal. Some say it has powers over the body.

By: Susana Madden and Guy Coggins
Wouldn’t it be exciting to tell at a first
glance when meeting an attractive stranger what kind of lover, husband,
or friend he may be? Is this handsome hunk a caring, honest,
compassionate, potential family man? Could he be monogamous? Or is this
cutie giving you the eye of a philandering rock 'n roller, bedding down
a different woman every night?
Appearances, when meeting someone for the first time, are usually
deceiving. Unless we are familiar with a person’s background, it
usually takes quite a while to honestly know someone. On the
other hand, one’s aura tells all. The aura, a field of energy that
surrounds people and other living things does not lie or conceal. The
beautiful colors in one’s auric field reveal a person’s true nature.
By taking thousands of photos, and asking many questions, I have
found that the six basic colors seen in the aura correspond to six
basic personality types, with each having a distinctive social and
sexual style. Now, if you know what color his aura is, you’ll know what
to expect from him! Do you want to be with a lusty, animalistic red? Or
would you rather be with a supportive and sensitive blue? Here are the
six basic colors along with their general descriptions. Please not that
these descriptions do not always apply, but are generalities, or like
tendencies. Life is always full of surprises, and anyone is capable of
just about anything.
- RED: Reds love sex. For them it’s a hearty, wanton,
playful, and joyful physical release. Reds don’t necessarily need to be
in love to enjoy sex, since the sheer physical pleasure is the most
important thing. They are passionate lovers and are not afraid to fully
experience their sexuality, and turn their fantasies into reality! Red
signifies high energy, physical and emotional drive. If you want to
have an exciting fling with a partner who takes control, choose red.
- ORANGE: Oranges need space. If you’re consumed in your
career or need a lot of time to yourself, choose an orange. An orange
is fun when he’s around, and also loves adventurous, high energy sex
like a red, but an orange will not be too demanding. Oranges are
usually extremely independent, often athletic, and frequently need to
take off on some high adventure to test the limits of their physical
and mental strength. And orange might ask you to go sky diving or
bungee jumping. Don’t expect monogamy from this one either. Oranges
relish the thrill of seduction
- YELLOW: Yellows love to sit around and discuss, theorize and
analyze. You’ll often find them sitting in bohemian cafes, huddled
around steaming espresso debating how to solve the problems of the
world. To them, life is one great mental riddle, or crossword puzzle
which can be ultimately solved in a logical and systematic manner.
Innately curious, a yellow is always asking questions. Like Mr. Spock
on Star Trek, their approach to life is primarily mental and cerebral.
A yellow would probably rather discuss your political views on a first
date than ravish your body. If you are turned on by intelligence, quick
wit, and an optimistic attitude about life, go with Mr. Yellow.
- GREEN: Marry a green. Greens come from the heart and their
generosity and compassion know no limits. They are innately caring and
tend to want to heal the world. Greens are often doctors, teachers,
therapists, and social workers. They want to serve, and make the world
a better place to live in. Greens make tender, loyal, caring lovers, as
much concerned with your pleasure as with theirs. They tend to love
children and animals, enjoy domesticity and family life. Greens are
also ambitious and strive to reach the top of their field. Not only
kind, this man is usually well-off financially, too.
- BLUE: Blues are sensitive. They have great depth of feeling
and crave intimacy and meaningful communication. They are often
thoughtful and introspective. Not usually materialistic, a rich
spiritual, contemplative and creative life is more important to them
than monetary wealth. Above all, blues wish to be in loving, supportive
relationships to which they can generously give and reveal themselves.
With blues, love and sex go hand in hand. If you want to be with
somebody who is true and emotionally there for you, choose a blue.
- PURPLE: Expect the unexpected with a purple! These
fascinating nonconformists live in the wonderful, wild worlds of their
unlimited imaginations. Often purples would rather daydream and
fantasize about sex, and play with erotic images in their heads rather
than actually do it. Fantasy, role playing and fetishismare not out of
the question for a purple. Purples, who tend toward passivity, usually
enjoy physical intimacy only after they feel safe and trusting with a
caring partner. If you want to take the lead in a relationship and
explore the kinky side, then purple may be for you.
