Intuitively we know which colors we feel happiest wearing, we are drawn to those that make us feel and look our best. It appears that worldwide we predominantly fit into four different personality categories, based on where we live and our natural hair, skin and eye color tones. With this simple guide you can decide for yourself where you fit into the color wheel of the year!
The categories are divided into four archetypes each one representing the four seasons. Each archetype is reflected not only in the colour of each season but also how the vibrations of those colours affect the moods and nature of these people, even down to their interests and occupations. You may find yourself sharing aspects from more than one of the areas depending on your background and heritage. If you imagine the child resulting from a union between a cool icy blonde Norwegian mother and the rich warm tones of a Jamaican father you can see that there would be mix in colour tones.
This wheel is a reflection of the natural world, as each archetype is affected by the colours of that country, the seasons, and even the change of light and colours throughout the different times of the day. As Autumn draws near in many parts of our world, and our environment turns into a quilt of warm gold’s, red, orange, and russet browns, we know that the year is drawing in and prepare to close down, harvest and store for the hard winter to follow. This feels perfectly normal to us but it wouldn’t if these feelings arose in the middle of Spring, when the earth is coming back to life and we are surrounded by cool bright dazzling shades of the spring flowers the bright green of new shoots and buds. This yearly cycle is recognisable everywhere in different ways, even countries which don’t have discernable seasons react in similar ways.
Our body reacts instinctively to these changes, even to the changing colours of the day, the cool refreshing bright colours of early morning light, bright midday sun, warm golden shades of the afternoon sunset and the rich dark evening colours of indigo and navy blues of night time, calming restful colours that will help us to sleep.
