Do you know why black and orange are the colors of Halloween? The ever popular date of October 31st is also the time of the Pagan holiday known as Samhain. This is when we honor our ancestors, both human and animal, who have cross to the other side.
One of the first steps to acquiring knowledge of the Old Religion is to understand the magick of colors. Each color vibrates towards different qualities. Here is the explanation of why the colors black and orange are the colors of Halloween, the colors of Samhain.
Black is the neutrality that has yet to be molded. It is the absence of all color. Black can remove negative vibrations as well as create negative vibrations. It is considered a holy color, which is very useful in magick. Black is not influenced by any qualities, other than that of the will. The power to transcend realms is why black is one of the colors of Halloween. It is a color ruled by the planet Saturn, the planet of karma and time.
Orange is the color of Mercury, the planet of communications. It opens doorways to bring minds together, both spiritually and physically. This is the reason why orange is the other color for Halloween; it makes communication possible between the realm of the living and the realm of spirits. Orange is also the color of attraction, which could be considered the color of magnetics. 🙂
