Color Interpretation Key
The real nitty-gritty tools youíll need to interpret your own aura.
Anatomy of the Aura
- Right side, pictureís left: This is the personís 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, pictureís right: This is the personís 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 goal.
- 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 alternating directions.
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 Cogginsí 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. Itís 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 this chakra.
||Communication. The color on the throat is traditionally energy actively being expressed or held back. It could be a sore throat or a song.
||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 feelings.
||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 personís common reality. This is where all impulses for emotions begin, and it lies just below your belly button.

Wouldnít 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 personís background, it usually takes quite a while to honestly know someone. On the other hand, oneís 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 oneís auric field reveal a personís 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, youíll 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 itís a hearty, wanton, playful, and joyful physical release. Reds donít 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 youíre consumed in your career or need a lot of time to yourself, choose an orange. An orange is fun when heís 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. Donít expect monogamy from this one either. Oranges relish the thrill of seduction
- YELLOW: Yellows love to sit around and discuss, theorize and analyze. Youíll 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.
