a colourful orange world

Orange... it seems like you either love it or hate it.

I definitely am less of a lover when it comes to orange but this week I have found myself thinking and working with orange quite a bit.

I've always typically associated orange with Halloween or with exuberance or awkwardness (because it's an awkward colour in that you love it or loathe it). But lately I've been really embracing the exuberance of orange, the somewhere in between energy of cheerful yellow and intense red. I've never thought of orange as the middle ground, the balanced location between 2 colours, but right now, that's working for me, both literally and metaphysically.

In terms of my pathworking, as you can see above, I've been working with orange and the west/water, from a hermetic framework (orange with blue). Those of you unfamiliar with what I'm talking about, have a look at the lesser banishing ritual (scroll down to the archangels, you'll understand what I mean then). Or, if you're an artist, think about this in terms of colour charts (complimentary). In working with water over the last few weeks, I've really found orange to emerge more and more in my world. It's pretty cool actually.

In fact, over the past week I've worked to spend a fair amount more time by the water and I'm really happy about the impact this is having on my life. I found a place by the water where I think I can do some morning meditations (see photo) and I've been dreaming a lot about water these days. And with that, there seems to be more orange, which is making me oddly enough, pretty dang content!

What about you, when you think of orange, what does it evoke?
