In Āyurveda we use colors in multiple ways as subtle forms of therapy. Colors are used to balance the doshas, heal different organ systems, soothe emotions, work with the chakras or align with planetary energies.
In Vedic sciences, Jyotish, or Vedic Astrology, is the ‘science of light.’ According to this science, each planet has a strong influence on everything in the universe, but also a specific influence on the mind, body and emotions of each person. One fun way of interacting with the planetary energies is through your clothing! Each day of the week is connected to a planet, and each planet is aligned with a color which correlates to the vibration of that planet. So wearing the colors that align with the planet on a given day is a great way to connect with the energies of the cosmos. Give it a try!
