We eat green foods for health yet avoid others that have gone mouldy green. We love our earth looking green yet run for cover when the sky has the green tinges of an approaching hailstorm. Green is lucky and particularly we speak of the ‘luck of the Irish’. Green is associated with wealth and many people carry their money in a green purse or wallet to attract more money into their lives. On the negative side, green is the colour of jealousy and envy.
Yellow and blue make green – so there is a shade of green to suit every person whether it is lime green for Springs, forest green for Winters or olive green for Autumns to name a few. Think about what feelings and energy you want to convey and then choose a green shade that is appropriate for that message and your colouring.
Finally, green and gold are the colours of Australia whenever we compete overseas.
