Violet is sexy !

Violet just happens to be my favorite color.  It has many attributes and qualities.  Let's see....

Its a mixture of blue and red!

Violet signifies calm, kindness, passion and intelligence.

If you are into Tarot it symbolizes new beginnings.

In psychology violet is the color of fusion (between 2 hearts).

In other spheres violet is also used to indicate sadness and is widely used during funerals.

In France, they used to attach a violet stone around the necks of children to make them obedient and protect them from illness.

It is the color of the 7th chakra which is the color for the transition from the yang to the yin.  It is used to stimulate women sexually while men use red!

The catholic churches use it extensively during funerals and Good Friday!

    Thank you for linking to Rainbow Summer School.


  16. actually violet is not a mixture of any other colors. blue and red make purple, there is no purple in the rainbow, as red and blue aren't next to each other.
    violet is at the top of the spectrum between the ultraviolet range and indigo below it.
