You will come alive and so will the world around you with the eye-catching color aqua for the coming spring and summer seasons. If wearing a complete aqua outfit seems like too much color for you, then you can always add the color in a more subtle way in the form of a scarf, clutch or string of turquoise beads.

Aqua is a serene yet uplifting color, balanced at a point between blue and green. Like blue, of which it is a variant, aqua has a deeply soothing quality, suggesting the beauty and serenity of a tropical lagoon. Like green, it is highly symbolic of nature.

This laid-back energy is associated with meditation, sensitivity and emotional vulnerability. Because of its association with the throat chakra, aqua promotes clear communication, honesty, openness and the need to join together with others. It represents the ability to transform, just as water turns to ice, ice turns to water, and the cycle repeats.

A simple spell for aqua:
Take time to page through a few decorating magazines, cutting out shapes wherever you find the color aqua. Arrange these shapes on card stock and glue them lightly into place, fashioning a collage. When it is done, post the collage in a place where you can see it every day, to appreciate its soothing vibration. Our editor tried it—see the result below.
