Capricorn (December 22 through January 19)

Let us start with some of the character traits most often associated with Capricorn’s. People under this sign are often described as responsible, disciplined, and have a high degree of self-control. What about weaknesses? Capricorns can often be viewed as a know-it-all, unforgiving, condescending, and often expect the worst out of a situation. Capricorn’s constellation is known as the Goat of Fear; the constellation depicts a goat with the tail of a fish and is believed to represent facing your fears and creating panic. Capricorn is one of those confusing signs: they often have a brave face but are fighting their own personal demons inside.

While they may appear to be strong on the outside, in reality, they may be much weaker than that. These individuals tend to get wrapped up in the feeling of guilt and tend to focus on the past rather than the present moment. They have a hard time with forgiveness, which can make them appear to be unforgiving and distant. Capricorn may also have trouble accepting people who are different from themselves. Despite this, they are highly likely to learn from their mistakes. The color that best represents this particular character is gravity gray. This neutral color allows you to add a pop of color to really bring a room together. Gray is a color of control, which directly correlates to your inner workings. Gray is all about balance, which is integral to your make-up. Retain your inner peace by sticking with neutral colors, primarily gray. Other similar colors that may work for you are brown or black, though painting in these colors may darken a room too much.

Aquarius (January 20 through February 18)

Aquarius could not be any different from a Capricorn! These individuals tend to possess qualities such as being progressive, original, independent, and humanitarian. They genuinely believe in making the world a better place. Their downfall is their emotions: they tend to allow their emotions to control their actions, which often causes them to become temperamental and uncompromising.

The biggest issue with being an Aquarius is feeling like you are being held back from your full potential. Due to their highly independent nature, their biggest fear is being contained and not being able to express themselves freely. By far, the worst situations to be in with an Aquarius is an intimate relationship: they often become cold and impersonal. This, however, is just one of their defense mechanisms, so if you are willing to overlook this small hiccup, it is well worth it to have an Aquarius as a partner.

Antique teal is the optimal color choice for this zodiac sign. Aquarius signs tend to go with the flow and crave independence and freedom: what better to do that than with the color of the sky? You may also want to look into shades of silver.

One of the more popular zodiac symbols is the Pisces. Pixabay

Pisces (February 19 through March 20)

As a water sign, Pisces can be compassionate, artistic, intuitive, gentle, wise, and musical. Despite this, these individuals may be fearful, overly trusting, and sad, looking for a way to escape reality. Due to their nature, people under this zodiac sign are often surrounded by friends; they usually give back more than they receive, which makes them great companions. They tend to reserve judgment and are quick to forgiveness.

Pisces is very intuitive, which allows them to tune into what others are feeling and act accordingly. They know how to empathize with others and are not afraid to express their emotions.

So what color would work best for Pisces? Since this is a water sign, a lovely blue hue would work well, say Breezy Beach. Surrounding yourself in your natural element brings out your inner calm. Since the ocean is a place where Pisces naturally feels at home, it may not be a bad idea to try out a sea green color. Everyone craves to be at peace and relaxed, which is exactly what this paint job will do to your space. Feel energized and free whenever you enter your home!

Aries (March 21 through April 19)

Being a fire sign, Aries tends to be completely different from the water signs. These individuals tend to be compassionate, determined, confident, enthusiastic, optimistic, honest, and passionate. On the flip side, they can also be impatient, moody, short-tempered, impulsive, and aggressive. Being that this is the first sign in the zodiac, they also tend to like to be the first at everything– they love being at the top. They are the ones to take action to solve problems. The constellation behind Aries is called the Flying Ram and is inspired by the ancient tale of the Golden Fleece.

Being a fire sign, it is no wonder that the best color for this zodiac sign revolves around fire. As an Aries, consider Persimmon Orange as a color for any room in the house! This color exudes power, which is precisely how you see yourself, as powerful and bold. Do not fret over the boldness of color choice: Persimmon Orange is a soft orange hue that will satisfy your need for a catchy color while not being too harsh on the eyes. You will be entirely in your element with this color scheme while also surprising others with your strong choice in color.

Taurus is often shown as a bull. Pixabay

Taurus (April 20 through May 20)

Moving on to Earth signs, Taurus can be described as reliable, patient, practical, devoted, responsible, and stable. However, they may also be seen as stubborn, possessive, and uncompromising. Taurus is unique in that they are drawn to the pleasures of life, being tuned into the material world, hedonism, and physical desires. Though they do like to succumb to pleasurable activities, they are also viewed as one of the most stable of the zodiac signs. The constellation that represents Taurus is named the Wandering Bull and was cursed by Hera to wander the world in search of freedom and love.

As an Earth sign, it is no surprise that the best color choice for them would be a green hue, something like Quiet Green. You are very patient, and you want that reflected in your personal spaces. Earthy tones will keep you grounded when everything else around you seems to be falling apart. Stay connected to your element and inner peace through every paint stroke. Feel inspired every time you come home to your comfort zone. Embrace your freedom by surrounding yourself in Earth tones, thereby reminding you of your free spirit.

Gemini (May 21 through June 20)

Moving back to air signs, Gemini is often described as gentle, affectionate, and adaptable. On the other hand, they can be viewed as nervous, inconsistent, and indecisive. Due to the dual nature of Gemini, these individuals often express opposing emotions. They tend to switch between being sociable and communicative to suddenly acting serious, thoughtful, and restless. They are curious to a fault, often feeling they do not have enough time in the world to experience and learn everything. The constellation representing Gemini is called the Caring Twins, highlighting the childish innocence held by this zodiac sign.

What color should a Gemini consider painting their humble abode? Consider Wax Pepper, which would be a mix between a tan and beige color. As a neutral color, it allows a Gemini to express both personalities without worrying about clashing colors.

Cancer (June 21 through July 22)

This zodiac is another water sign that can be described as tenacious, highly imaginative, loyal, emotional, sympathetic, and persuasive — all excellent qualities to possess. But the bad must also come with the good: Cancer may also be moody, pessimistic, suspicious, manipulative, and insecure. Due to their inherent nature, this zodiac sign is often the hardest to get to know each other on a profoundly personal level. The constellation that represents Cancer is named the Brave Crab and is thought to express their inner strength and need to defend others. These individuals are usually the first to offer help to others and tend to do so without causing conflict.

So what color best suits this water sign? We came up with Lilac Sand, which is a very soft tone of purple. Due to being highly emotional, choosing a calming sound will help keep emotions in check and help you feel centered.

Leo is for the lion. Pixabay

Leo (July 23 through August 22)

Another fiery individual, Leos can be seen as creative, passionate, warm-hearted, cheerful, and humorous. Their inner fire helps fuel their passions but may also lead to the conclusion that a Leo may be arrogant, stubborn, self-centered, lazy, and inflexible. These people tend to be natural-born leaders and have no problem taking command of a room. The constellation illustrating Leo is known as the Lion in the Cave. The story behind this constellation is often rife with bravery. They are the individual who knows how to ask for what they want, and they generally have no problems attaining whatever it is that they seek.

Going along the lines of fire inspired colors, the best hue recommended for these individuals would be Electric Kumquat. Due to your ability to draw people in with your personality, you should also choose a color that stands out and grabs the attention of guests.

Virgo (August 23 through September 22)

Let us switch it up and start with the less desirable traits first. While a Virgo can be described as being shy, someone who worries a lot and self-critical, they can also be extremely loyal, analytical, kind, hardworking, and practical. Due to their attention to every detail, they tend to earn the reputation of being the most careful of the zodiac signs. They are very tied up in emotion, often feeling like they are experiencing everything for the first time. The constellation behind Virgo is known as the Disappointed Goddess, always seeking the goodness in humanity.

Being an Earth sign, you would think some Earth tone would be the most soothing for a Virgo. However, it has been determined that the best color option for these individuals would be Cosmic Sapphire. This dark shade is a practical choice for bringing a room together.

A balanced scale is often the symbol for Libra. Pixabay

Libra (September 23 through October 22)

The final air sign of the zodiac, Libra’s can often be indecisive and will often avoid confrontation. They hold much self-pity are the type of people who hold grudges. Despite this, they can be useful to work with, as they are often cooperative, gracious, fair-minded, and social. This is the one sign that hates being alone and tends to gravitate towards others. Due to the nature of their symbol, they like to keep things in balance and symmetry. The constellation associated with Libra is called the Measure of Our Souls and is seen as a spot of balance.

This soft color will help to bring balance and harmony to any room in the house, which is precisely the emotional level you are searching for.

Obviously, the scorpion represents Scorpio. Pixabay

Scorpio (October 23 through November 21)

Scorpio, being a water sign, can be viewed as resourceful, brave, passionate, and stubborn while also being distrusting, jealous, secretive, and violent. Due to their nature, Scorpio’s do not handle being lied to very well and can often turn jealous and distrusting if they suspect something is amiss. Since they are a water sign, they are very in tune with their emotions, but they are manifested somewhat differently than other water signs. Like Leo, Scorpio tends to be in a leadership position due to their passion and resourcefulness. Since they are so emotionally involved, they tend to be great secret keepers and confidants.

So what color should we assign this water sign? A beautiful neutral shade of Cold Brew would work splendidly! This color scheme will only heighten your passion and intensity. This bold color directly reflects your natural-born abilities to take control of a situation, much like you command the space of a room.

Sagittarius (November 22 through December 21)

The last sign of the zodiac to discuss is Sagittarius. Another fire sign to deal with here: these individuals tend to be associated with traits such as being generous, idealistic, and having a great sense of humor. It is not all good, however; these people can also be impatient, make promises they cannot keep and has no control over what they say in certain situations.

These individuals are highly curious and are always looking for new ways to interact with the world around them. Due to their need to roam, it is no wonder that a Sagittarius would value freedom.

What color would best represent a Sagittarius and bring out the best of their personality? We could think of no other color than Blue Marlin. Though traveling is integral to who you are, it is still essential to create a calm space to come back to when the travels have ended. The blue color not only helps to maintain a relaxing atmosphere, but it can also be used to remind you of the wide-open spaces of the sky or ocean. Get lost in your home after a long trip: fall into a trance as you reminisce about all of your incredible adventures.
