This month we will be looking for White or Silver. White is technically not a colour, white light comprises all hues on the visible light spectrum. White is the lightest colour and is achromatic (having no hue). White is seen to be pure and clean. A wedding dress, the pure snow, a swan’s feather, fluffy clouds, milk and the Milky Way.
Silver is a precious metal, indicating wealth. “Born with a silver spoon in your mouth”. A cool colour. Sparkling silver water. The light of the moon. It represents feminine energy, pure, emotional and sensitive.
“Life is a train of moods
like a string of beads
and as we pass through them
they prove to be many-coloured lenses
which paint the world
their own hue,
and each shows only
what lies in its focus.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
