In the mood for everything Orange + Green

I went shopping again today and realized that for the past few weeks I’ve been attracted to this two color scheme, Orange and green thus my intention to know more of this colour and it’s meaning. You see, like most human being I do have a phase in life, it’s just that sometimes it is not that simple to interpret why and what is the cause of such feelings and mood swings. So being the curious me the next best thing to do is to diagnose this recent colour craze of mine and this is what I got online.

Orange –

It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.

To the human eye, orange is a very hot color, so it gives the sensation of heat. Nevertheless, orange is not as aggressive as red. Orange increases oxygen supply to the brain, produces an invigorating effect, and stimulates mental activity. It is highly accepted among young people. As a citrus color, orange is associated with healthy food and stimulates appetite. Orange is the color of fall and harvest. In heraldry, orange is symbolic of strength and endurance.

If you wear orange, you are action oriented and competent. Orange symbolizes practicality, independence, organization and creativity. You are self-motivated, active and competitive. You need to be careful not to try and dominate others.


Green is the color of nature and it soothes and refreshes. The color of green is considered healing and a good omen for those in trouble. Green is a strong energy and attracts a lot of positive power, it is the shade of peace and harmony. Green can indicate a situation that will seek the most peaceful solution possible, and follow the paths of least resistance. It is the color of honesty and truth.

Green contains the powerful energies of nature, growth, desire to expand or increase. Balance and a sense of order are found in the color green. Change and transformation is necessary for growth, and so this ability to sustain changes is also a part of the energy of green.

Put some green in your life when you want:

  • a new state of balance
  • feel a need for change or growth
  • freedom to pursue new ideas
  • protection from fears and anxieties connected with the demands of others

So in conclusion..i’m balancing a bit of orange and a bit of green in life right now…hhmmm does it make sense??? I wonder….
