Have you ever looked at the walls of your home and wondered what color they should be? Use any color that invigorates you, or choose one based on your zodiac sign for fun. From Aries to Pisces, each sign has unique power colors, which you’ll find naturally drawn to and help bring out your unique personality.
So, if you’re looking for wall paint colors that match your zodiac sign, read on to find out what they are.
March 21-April 19
Aries is the fiery god of war in Greek mythology, and as a daring fire sign, it seems only fitting that it’s linked with the color red. And, oh, this makes even more sense because Mars is the ruling planet for Aries.
Create a vibrant, warm color palette reflecting Aries’ bold and adventurous nature. Red and related hues like purple and crimson are strong colors. You can pair them with calmer colors like green and blue to soften them or create a dramatic contrast.
April 20-May 20
Taurus is an earth sign often associated with down-to-earth, tenacious, and reliable traits. Green represents Taurus, which is ideal considering this sign’s earth-centric energy. A color palette that’s rich but calming can evoke a connection to the natural world.
Green is the main color of Taurus. But earth tones like brown, rust, and terracotta are also connected to this zodiac sign. Aside from being the color of nature, green is also closely linked to wealth, given that Venus, the planet of love and prosperity, rules Taurus. So, you can also go for a luxurious theme, with emerald green as an accent.
May 21-June 20
Gemini, the Air sign ruled by Mercury, radiates with the vibrant power of yellow. As playful and enthusiastic creatures of the zodiac, Geminis can thrive in a palette with a tropical flair.
Mix the sunny yellow with the uplifting shades of green (think teal and lime), and add a touch of boldness with medium turquoise and sapphire blue. As the sign of twins, Gemini also has another side, often seen as the “opposite” of the social butterfly. You can always opt for muted and pastel yellows and pair them with neutral white.
June 21-July 22
With the moon as its ruler, Cancer is closely associated with serene and spiritual energy, symbolized by the shimmering power of silver. Silver is reminiscent of the moon, a fitting hue representing intuition, emotion, and empathy.
A Cancer-inspired color palette evokes tranquility and harmony. As it is a water sign, try adding calming colors of the sea, like light and rich blue, seafoam green or other green shades, and white.
July 23-August 22
The regal Leo, an eminent fire sign, is ruled by the mighty sun! Often associated with leadership, dominance, and bravery, Leo draws attention. And the color that befits such a sign? None other than the vibrant shade of orange.
A color palette that suits this zodiac sign is something warm and royal. While orange is the main hue for Leo, a touch of gold and royal purple can complete the scheme. Taking on such vibrant hues is understandably daunting. But you can always go for more subdued tones and incorporate the vibrant versions of these colors in the little decor.
August 23-September 22
The grounded and sensible Virgo exudes a powerful aura with the color brown. This hue perfectly captures the practical and traditional disposition associated with the zodiac sign while also nodding to its symbol—the maiden, a deity linked to agriculture. And, of course, Virgo is an earth sign.
A color palette highlighting brown is great because the variations are mostly neutral. Beige, taupe, and walnut are easily a few of the shades you can incorporate into your scheme. Colors like olive green, raw sienna, and ochre can accentuate the palette while still maintaining the earthy feel.
September 23-October 22
An air sign ruled by Venus, Libra symbolizes beauty, balance, and peace. Pink is the color of the sign, and it showcases the right potency of femininity and softness that's so natural with Libra.
A color palette inspired by Libra obviously highlights pink. Add some cool blues for contrast, or balance it with creamy neutral colors like white, cream, or beige.
October 23-November 21
Scorpio is ruled by two celestial bodies, Pluto, the king of the underworld, and Mars, the god of war (or Aries). This cosmic combo gives Scorpio an intense, fiery energy often mistaken for fire. But it’s actually a water sign, with Pluto in a higher vibration. And as such, Scorpio also has an irresistible and mysterious energy that can only be the power color black.
As a color palette’s dominant hue, black might not be the easiest to work with, especially for novices. But so many interior styles incorporate black—it’s a great color for accent walls and creates a moody bedroom. You can add deep and mystical colors like pomegranate, ruby, teal, and emerald.
November 22-December 21
Jupiter rules Sagittarius, making it a fiery sign with a twist of mutability. This translates to adaptability and flexibility. Naturally creative, inspired, and independent, Sagittarius is all about freedom. This zodiac sign is also symbolic of innate curiosity and truth-seeking. Its lucky color is purple, which represents clever and creative thinking.
There are many shades of purple, like plum and lavender, which you can easily make the star of the color palette. Add blue colors to mimic blue flames for fun or a touch of green for contrast.
December 22-January 19
Ruled by Saturn, the god of time, Capricorn is often associated with ambition, perseverance, and pragmatism. Charcoal grey is the lucky color for this astrological sign, which speaks of the Stoic nature of Capricorn. Plus, the color is related to its element, the earth.
Charcoal grey is a favorite among modern homes, so you’ll have no trouble making it a star in your palette. You can add other muted and earthy colors, like brown, forest green, navy blue, and black.
January 20-February 18
Uranus, the god of the sky, rules Aquarius alongside Saturn, the god of time. While these energies may seem very different, this blend gives Aquarius these inherent traits—humanitarian, out-of-the-box thinking, advanced, and eccentric but also endearing. The color blue is the lucky hue of Aquarius, which is ideal because of its ruling planet and its element, the air.
A peaceful color palette highlighting blue befits an Aquarius-inspired theme. Turquoise, cobalt blue, and brighter versions of blue are ideal than deeper blue. Then, add white for balance and lime green or purple for a pop.
February 19 - March 20
Pisces, the final constellation of the zodiac, is a water sign that embodies dreams, art, and intuition. Neptune co-rules this zodiac sign with Jupiter. This gives Pisces a dreamy and imaginative nature. And with both planets being highly spiritual, the sign’s connection to dreams, empathy, and creative abilities is enhanced.
Neptune is intrinsically linked to the sea, which makes sense that the power color of Pisces is aquamarine or seafoam green. You can include washed-out blue pastels, water greens, and grey, which are colors you find at sea.
