Based on societal connotations, yellow has become known for:

  • age/aging
  • jealousy
  • cowardliness

However, it is in actuality connected to the sun and pertains to life energy as a source of creation. As such, in terms of auras, it represents mental clarity and intellect.


The vibrancy and variant shades have meanings all their own:

  • Brilliant yellow refers to one’s spirituality—either in inspiration or as an awakening. Alternatively, it could mean a strength of will to act on your thoughts and desires.
  • Lemon yellows are associated with a fear of loss.
  • While pale yellow designates renewed hope and excitement for the future—especially in the case of a spiritual journey.

Open to the interpretation of your psychic and the context of your reading, yellow may also mean:

  • fatigue
  • joy
  • playfulness
  • positivity
  • power struggles
  • psychics awareness
  • restlessness
  • stress


According to the Seven Rays system—developed by Alice Bailey (in which humans are classified into seven metaphysical psychological types)—those that appear on the third ray (of “Adaptability” or “Active Intelligence”) are said to “be on the Yellow Ray.” And as previously touched on, the solar plexus chakra is closely connected to the color and by extension its associated energy and emotions.
