Do you know your planetary color? It’s the color of the planet that rules your sun, rising, and moon zodiac signs — like bright red for Aries or maroon for Virgo. I’m a Leo sun sign, ruled by the sun, so my color is (naturally) gold.

Gold is also one of my favorite colors to use to accent different things in my life. I have a blanket with gold constellations, a pasta container with painted gold highlights, and a button-down shirt with gold thread running through it. 

Once you’ve figured out your planetary color, you’ve got a ton of options for incorporating it into your life in fun — but not overbearing — ways. Try some of these for a blast of relatable color in your world.

  1. Paint an accent wall
  2. Hang a colored sun catcher in the window. 
  3. Add throw pillows and blankets in your planetary color. 
  4. Get a colorful tablecloth, table runner, placemats. 
  5. Upgrade your appliances to match your planetary color.
