How To Read Auras: What Do Different Colors Mean?

Ever since I wrote the post on  How To See Auras you have all been asking me what the different colors you saw when you followed the instructions mean.

I promised you to ask a friend who has worked extensively with auras and also does aura portraits for people to write more on the topic, and that’s exactly what I did.

Allow me to introduce you to the first guest blogger on this website:

Akelta Wilde, a talented practitioner, demonosopher and a good friend of mine, who has worked with auras extensively and also does aura portraits for people.

Akelta has written a long post on auras, including the different layers of the aura as well as the interpretation of the different colors.

This is part Two: all about the different colors you can see in the aura and how to interpret them.

It is important to remember that this is not set in stone.

These are generalities and for the most part, you will find these interpretations to be true.  But there is always that person who might have different colors, or you might sense that the color means something different.  Go with that intuition. Many people would have you think that black is a negative color, but black in the aura can be a positive and for some people a connection to the dark divine.

It is also important that with every color you see, to ask yourself if you get a negative or a positive feeling off of it.

I once worked energetically on an individual that had white on their aura that was corrosive and actually harming them.  If you see a color and get a negative feeling from it, listen to that. It might be an energy that is damaging or causing issues in the aura.  It can also be foreign to the auric body and is something that needs to be cleared.


Seeing metallic color in the aura can mean that area has powerful energies.  Metallics usually are supercharged energies and might indicate skill and power.  A connection to the divine and connection to one’s spiritual power.  Metallic energies are a sign that one is tapped into and aligned with greatness, and that they can tap into that greatness within their energy field.


If the colors feel fuzzy, hazy or distorted it could mean that there is a block or that the energies themselves are unfocused.  Energy can become unfocused in situations of stress and tension or when someone is feeling overwhelmed and anxious.  It can mean that there is a lack of clarity and can also mean that the individual is struggling with memory and recall.


Dull colors usually indicate that there is something wrong. The energy is drained or the area of the aura is blocked and the energies are not flowing smoothly.  Dull areas are usually void of energy and will have blocks around them that need to be removed so that the energies can flow smoothly again.


Vibrant color indicates health normally, but it can also mean there is too much energy and something is unbalanced.  Energies will naturally appear bright, but if a brightness stands out it could be there is too much energy in the area and a block has to be released to allow the energies to flow freely.  The goal of the energies of the aura should always be balanced.

When we are scanning, the best way to identify issues is to look for areas that stand out. They might be normal, but they might also indicate something is unbalanced.

White is usually associated with purity. It can also mean, healing, inspiration, forgiveness, new energy that is awakening, transcendence, accessing a higher dimension, truth, a connection to the angelic divine, pregnancy if it is in the reproductive organs, new life, and new opportunity and innocence.

It can also indicate that there is an emptiness in a region that needs to be filled.


Black is an interesting color in the aura as it is often associated with negatives.

However, it does have positive sides that many people do not acknowledge.  It can give clues to the shadow self and shadow work.  Black can mean protection, straight, power, mystery, sexuality, wealth, elegance, sophistication, a profound balance and sense of self.  It can be an energy that is about to be activated and awakened.  It can mean one is strong and reliable. They can also be aloof and enjoy solitude.

On the other side, it can mean anger, destruction, and damage to the aura in the form of withholding forgiveness or unreleased guilt.  Something that is weighing the individual down that they are holding onto.  It can mean there is an astral parasite in the aura.  It can be past life pains, fear, sadness, mourning, unhappiness, and one that is withdrawn and sad.  It can also be a warning that there is evil in the person and that they are a danger.


Grey is a color that is aligned with both darkness and light.  It can reveal the shadow self and the darker side of the soul.  It can also be unconscious desires and dreams that we have that have yet to be realized.  If it looks metallic it can mean there is a powerful shield there.

On the other side, it can also reveal health problems, fears and pains one tries to conceal, or something they are guarding.  It can reveal blocked energies, darkness in one’s past, trauma, and depression.
