Have you ever gotten on a color kick, where you find yourself gravitating over and over to a particular color? It can tell you something about where you are in life. I have been on an orange tangent, as some of you may have noted in my posts. So I thought I’d do a little color psychology, to see what my subconscious may be trying to communicate to me. You see, in real life, orange is a color that looks abysmally awful on me. I never wear it and don’t decorate with it, as it turns me a lovely jaundiced yellow. In SL, however…I love, love, love it, and it has been a dominant theme in my clothing, decorating, and posts as of late.
I learned in my Google research that orange is the color of creativity, which has always been what SL has been about for me. Orange is also indicative of a need or desire for change, and can supposedly help one adjust to changes. Curiosity is a characteristic of this color, when it comes to exploring new things. This makes sense when I consider at my current stage of life, I am seeking a job change that will move me out-of-state, and also bring closure to a 3 and a half-year relationship I’ve been in.
Orange also is a powerful healing color, excellent for those who need a boost of self-esteem; and wearing orange during times of stress is said to balance the emotions. I can certainly use some of that with all the changes I’m embarking on. So if you find yourself trending towards a particular color in your SL or RL, it can be interesting to do a little color analysis to see if there is a special message there for you.
