Purple Haze

It's Thursday so it is color day and for today I researched the colour Purple. Today's blog was once again researched on

Now I have had some difficulty with this colour as to me purple and violet are the same, so I found this picture that shows what the difference is, and I still think violet is light purple.(Don't tell the interior decorators).

So if your favorite color is purple or if your favorite color is violet, here is what the psychologists have to say.
This color relates to the imagination and spirituality.  It is an introspective color, allowing us to get in touch with our deeper thoughts.

The difference between violet and purple is that violet appears in the visible light spectrum, or rainbow, whereas purple is simply a mix of red and blue.
In the meaning of colors, purple and violet represent the future, the imagination and dreams, while spiritually calming the emotions.
The color violet relates to the fantasy world, and a need to escape from the practicalities of life. 

From a color psychology perspective, purple and violet promote harmony of the mind and the emotions. Violet and purple support the practice of meditation.
Violet is the color of the humanitarian, using its better judgment to do good for others. Combining wisdom and power with sensitivity and humility, violet can achieve a lot for those less fortunate.
The color purple is specifically associated with royalty and the nobility, creating an impression of luxury, wealth and extravagance.
Purple has power. It has a richness and quality to it that demands respect. Purple is ambitious and self-assured, the leader.
Too much of the color purple can promote or aggravate depression in some. It is one color that should be used extremely carefully and in small amounts by those who are vulnerable to these depressed states.

You are a gentle and free spirit. Your feelings run deep and you can be quite sensitive to hurtful comments from others, although you would never show it.

You have a peaceful and tranquil quality and a quiet dignity about you. People are drawn to your charismatic and alluring energy. You are usually introverted and may give the impression of being shy although this is not the case.
You are creative and like to be individual in most of your endeavors, including your dress and home decoration - you love the unconventional. You are idealistic, and often impractical, with a great imagination, - you tend to look at life through rose-colored glasses. You inspire others with your creative thinking and your ability to deal positively with adversity. You are very intuitive and quite psychic or at least interested in spiritual growth or the occult - you seek spiritual fulfillment. You look for the meaning of are a generous giver, asking for little in return except friendship.You can be secretive. If you constantly surround yourself with too much purple you can become moody. If this is the case, balance the purple with some magenta. You dislike responsibility and have difficulty dealing with real day-to-day problems. You dislike being part of the crowd, wishing to stand apart from the mob - you like to be noticed for your individuality. You don't like to copy others and you don't like them to copy you. You are a visionary, with high ambitions, dreams and desires, and a compulsion to help humanity and to improve the planet earth. You often hold positions of power because you are visionary, but you delegate to others all the minor details that you aren't interested like to have the best of everything, so you aim high.Being the free spirit you are, you love to travel to experience different cultures and meet new people. You are a good judge of character and sum others up quite quickly and accurately, although you usually see the best in everybody. Time means little to you and you are often late. You need to be careful not to take on too many projects at a time as you can become quite scattered in your thinking, resulting in stress and confusion. Meditation is a good activity for you to help you become centered and balanced. You can sometimes appear arrogant and conceited if operating from a negative perspective. You can be selfish and self-indulgent as you don't like being imposed upon by others beliefs and regulations.

Here are some purple and violet and magenta items in my shop Adiesdesigns.
