Time to add orange energy around here. Something to bring a little pizazz to all the blue. I’m afraid the blue energy is not enough to see me through new projects. Calm and introspective is good–just not what you need to jump start a new year.
Orange is believed to symbolize vitality with endurance. According to color therapy gurus, it increases creativity and gets you more involved. Yep, that’s what I need around here. However, I did read that psychics consider an orange aura to be associated with stubbornness. Hmmmm, maybe I better not overdo it. Stubbornness is not something I need more of.
Did you know the word orange came to the English language from the Sanskrit nāraṅgaḥ ? In Spanish it became naranja but in Old French and Anglo-Norman it was orenge. Before the 13th century, the color was called geoluhread (yellow red). But thanks to the Persians, who passed along orange trees and their name to the English speaking peoples, a more definitive word came into our language.
