Note: You'll notice that I've listed both black and white as containing or representing all colors. Here's why:

In light, white is made up of all the colors of light, while black is the absence of light.

In pigment or paint, white is the absence of color. But if you mix all the colors together, theoretically you'll get black.


When white is added to a color, it raises the vibrations of that color. For instance---Red is a passionate, lustful color. Add white and you get pink. Pink is a higher expression of red, producing romantic love and affection. White also seems to add gentleness to a color.

Adding grey subdues the action of the color.

Black does the same, but also darkens it (obviously.) For instance--- Blue is calm and peaceful, but a dark dull blue is almost tranquilizing.


As with any magickal working, use your intuition when it comes to choosing the right color. If you feel a color I have listed here is not right for what you want to do, change it.
