Aura Color Cheat Sheet

This is a collection of aura colors and their meanings in a quick jot format. I created this as a reference guide for anyone attempting to learn the personality traits attributed to different aura colors. This information is a combination of my own studies and practices, as well information I have researched. 

We do not just have one aura color to our aura, we have many. Each person has a variety of aura colors hovering just above and below the skin. Most people that I have seen carry a dominant 2 to 3 aura colors, and a small amount of several others. Everyone is different and unique. Our auras constantly shift and adapt to the situations we are in, our mood, and the people we are with as well. 

The below information is meant to give readers a quick reference guide to aura colors and their meaning. 

Remember that the vibrancy, shade, and tone of the color have a lot to do with the meaning. How much of the color is present is up for the person/reader to decipher. For example red, one of the most variable colors. It can be based in orange, or in pink. Orange would be an adventurous thrill seeker side of the red aura spectrum, while a red pink would be on the romantic and tender side of the red aura personality. Another example would be someone with a an even amount of red to blue. They would have the driven and progressive energy of the red aura along with the diligent and calming blue aura who knows how to take a break. 

Remember to always be open. Each aura is unique. Some present themselves in patterns, other’s are strong and huge, others are more quiet and take a while to see. Some have unique traits and colors that only they have. Each glow is unique, be open and ready to always be learning.

I periodically update this sheet as I learn and observe more aura traits.

The vibrancy of the purple indicates the strength of their connection with their spiritual gifts. Remember it is vibrancy, and not hue. A vibrant dark purple is not depressed, it is regal or lunar. A murky faded purple is depression or suppressed spiritual gifts. 

Purple also has the most variations of realms it stems from. Some people have what I call a Lunar Purple. The Lunar Purple is a Moon based person, likely a night owl and one who definitely is a calm and deep sense of wisdom to them. Linked with the strength of the Wolf. There is also a Regal purple, think the embodiment of the High Priestess Tarot card.

Similar to Lavender. Outward thinking. Lives in the moment. Focus on People. Sociable. Compassionate.


Color of the Seer. Intuitive. Calm. Fearless. Practical. Wise. Truth Seeker. Empathic. Dreams. Gentle. Comfortable. Creative. Soft. Vulnerable. Quiet. Sweet. Quietly addresses problems. Don’t let the world know your problems. Don’t want people to feel sorry for you. Introverted. Needs own space. Prefers being unbothered. Thinker. Likes to know how things work. Unafraid to show how they think or feel. Stand up for what is right.  Inspire integrity and awareness. Matures Quickly.

Is very likely to experience chronic migraines and insomnia.


Purity. Mastery of Self. Cosmic Wisdom. Versatile. Cleansing. Practical Uses to Spiritual Gifts. Make do with what you have. Inquisitive. Naturally Curious. Makes Decisions Quickly. Neat in Appearance. Attracts. Charming. Clean and Organized. Sensible. Evaluating. Observing. Discreet. Poised. Strong Beliefs. Angelic Connection. Divine Healing Abilities. Healing.

On the astral plane there are many, many tones of white all with slightly different meanings.

Stable. Mature. Warm. Friendly. Calm. Of the Trees. Healthy. Dependable. Cozy. Strength. Durable. Diverse.

Rare, only saw it once and it was a fleeting color in their aura. Likely within people who have deep roots to the creatures of the forest.

Negative Brown

I like brown, I associate it with the goodness above so that’s my take on it, the internet insists that it’s negative so there’s that. Although it is super rare, I have only ever seen one and it was very brief and was a person with a strong connection to the trees. So to me it felt like bark and all the goodness of a tree. My guess is the negative brown aura is not actually a brown vibration but a muddy one, which is a heavier frequency. 

When you tap into the energy, and see/hear/feel the color, feel what shade it is and how it makes you feel. 

Insecurity. Makes poor decisions. Driven by ill desires, like greed or lust, etc etc. Manipulative. Distracts from their problems. Does Not enjoy things. Rejects spirituality/other opinions. All around not a fun dude.


Struggle with methodical paths of life. Routine. Overthinkers. Worry Warts. Can get in a rut and set up a tent and call it home. 



Black is a diverse color. It is harder to see what the different shades are so it’s really important to feel it because there is an extraordinary difference.

Black can be protective. It can shield from negative beings. It can show complete calmness and mastery of self. Those who have it are often warrior types. Strong in every sense of the word, and often elusive. Like a ninja.

Sometimes black appears and feels like a shadow, because the person is hiding from something/one.

Black that feels very heavy and thick, like tar and feels very negative. If you see this, you will most likely see it on the outside and not on the inside. If you do see it on the inside honestly I don’t know probably run or do an exorcism or something. I associate tar with demonic energy, and in the few times I’ve seen it on a person I can also see a very negative energy with them too. Seeing this means that they seriously, seriously need a cleanse. And you need a cleanse just from seeing it.

A black cloud near them, like standing behind or floating above can also be a negative being of some sort that probably needs to gtfo as well. 

A grayish black in the aura can signal very negative and very low vibrational depression. A person in this state is unlikely to be able to help themselves and need the help of others to bring their vibration up. Darker hues of blue and purple that feel depressive related are more in a phase of it, capable of returning back to their keen senses. One who embodies black such as this is lost, and needs a torch to guide them home.

Many color descriptions came from my own experience and practice, but I learned a lot from:
