Feng Shui Tips All About Orange, by Carol M. Olmstead
If we associate colors with months, then orange is the natural color to associate with October. Think orange leaves, the blood moon, and of course, Halloween. Orange may be the new black in pop culture, but In Feng Shui, orange is known as the “social color” because it helps draw people together and encourages communication.
On the fun side, that means using lots of orange decorations for a Halloween party can help encourage conversation and connection. On the more serious side, in Feng Shui and in color therapy, orange is used to overcome abuse, shock, depression, and codependency. People either love or hate orange. Some color therapists believe that if you don’t like orange, it’s an indication that you need it for healing.
Surrounding yourself with the color orange can make you feel energized, creative, and motivated. You may not need to produce drama with your use of the color orange, but you can add the color to your home and workplace in both dramatic and modest ways.
