Colour Characteristics:

The sacred masculinity of Gold forms one half of the collective wholeness of White. Silver forms the other. This is the Taoist concept of Yin and Yang, with each opposite forming one half of the whole, interdependent and inextricably linked, each providing definition to the other. Whilst Silver reflects receptive yin archetypes in the form of female goddesses, the moon and night, Gold is more indicative of extroverted yang archetypes such as male gods, the sun and day.

Gold is naturally linked with the higher mind and heightened states of consciousness and can be found in the aura when we are being guided by a male guru, saint or spiritual elder. The expanded states of consciousness represented by Gold can be reached via meditation and spiritual contemplation. In the visual arts, these enlightened states are represented by golden halos, while inspired states are often depicted as rays of golden sunlight entering the mind from above.

Gold light lends us charisma, helping us stand out from the crowd, like the king of the jungle with his golden mane or royalty wearing a golden crown. A Gold aura makes us feel comfortable being the centre of attention, accepting responsibility and playing a leadership role. With leadership comes power and influence, also represented by Gold. People who wear a lot of Gold in their aura have the potential to achieve wealth and fame.

When Gold is used to excess, we tend to outshine and overshadow others. We must take care to keep our ego in check. Fame and fortune inspire both awe and jealousy in others, making us seem godlike and unapproachable, or fake and shallow. It can be lonely at the top. If we share our good fortune, celebrate the light in others and focus on being of service to others, we tend to stay more balanced and grounded. Even royalty is essentially there to serve and care for the people.

If you constantly compare yourself to others and find yourself wanting, your Gold energy may be hidden or trapped within you. Use your outer world as a mirror. All the wonderful things you see in others are qualities you have within you, hidden like buried treasure. There is something that comes naturally to you that you do better than anyone else. This is your inner treasure, so let it shine!

Colour Therapy

Gold improves negative financial situations and can be considered therapeutic for anyone wearing Hardship Grey. To increase wealth and status, Gold can be combined with Resourceful Brown, Abundance Green, Success Brown or Silver.

If your Gold energy is excessive, meditate on colours such as Harmony Purple, Generosity Green, Unconditional Pink and Warmth Yellow. Practise embodying the qualities and attitudes of these colours. If your inner Gold is buried, read the Hips section in Colour Positions and meditate on the words of Marianne Williamson from her book ‘A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles’:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”


Above Head – A spiritual guru or Sun God or may be guiding you at this time. Spiritual Gurus may be living or deceased. Sun Gods, such as Apollo, Ra or Lugh, help us heal self worth wounds and to step into leadership roles. These spirit guides work sometimes through a sunny or powerful male in our lives who improves our self confidence.

Head – You have confidence and may have attained a higher level of consciousness due to deep contemplation, meditation or spiritual practises. Inspired ideas and thoughts are entering your mind.

Throat – You may have a gift for the spoken word and a charming or influential way of speaking. Your words are golden!

Arms – You have a level of charisma, charm, fame or confidence that makes you stand out from the crowd. You may feel valued and regal in a relationship as though someone has made you their king or queen.

Hands – This pattern can reflect leadership qualities, a high earning capacity and unique talents. You have found your inner treasure and it’s shining through in your work. You probably feel fulfilled, appreciated, recognised and valued.

Hips – You have hidden Gold inside you still waiting to be uncovered, discovered and brought out of the shadows into the light of day. Hidden Gold is a beautiful quality or gift being repressed due to self-esteem issues. Often we disown our hidden Gold and project it out into the world around us, thinking that others possess what we do not. For further insight, read Reflection Purple and Intelligence Yellow.

Legs – You have golden moments coming up for you. Your financial wealth and/or self esteem is set to improve.

COLOUR COMBINATIONS                       –         Gold with:

Red cards – You have leadership skills, charisma and personal power. Other people probably see you as a successful person who has vibrant energy levels.

Resourceful Yellow – You possess the skills needed to build great wealth. This combination can also reflect financial windfalls, excellent cash flow, the receipt of lump sum payments and pay rises.

White – White and Gold represent the highest Yang frequency of light. This energy brings us inspiration and wisdom as well as giving us a spiritual charisma that makes an impression on others. Success Brown is a very similar colour frequency.

Yellow cards – This combination reflects high self-esteem.
