Colors. Everyone knows what colors are, but has anyone ever thought about translating how they feel with colors? 

RED. This color could mean two things, Anger and Love. Red being associated with anger makes sense given that many people get red in the face from increased blood flow when they’re angry. Love is also connected to the color red since when love is in the air, so too is the color red. Used to evoke feelings of lust and desire, this ruby hue entices with its seduction.

BLUE. This color relates to verbal communication. Blue is a giver, not a taker. It represents strong relationships and feels deeply hurt if betrayed. A few other meanings of the color blue are trust and honesty as it instills confidence and inspires feelings of loyalty and integrity.

GREEN. This color is used to represent peace and calm. Green is the color of nature, life, and growth. It is associated with healing, hope, and new beginnings.

YELLOW. It symbolizes happiness, optimism, positivity, intellect Effects of yellow: clarifies, inspires, amuses, energizes Positive traits: creativity, perception, mentality, warmth.

ORANGE. People commonly describe the color orange as bright, happy, and joyful. Orange is the color of bright sunsets and fruits like oranges and tangerines, so many people might associate the color with the beauty of the setting sun or the refreshing taste of citrus.
