Dear Ghostvillagers,

I love autumn. Here in New England, we just went through the peak of the fall foliage colors. A few weeks ago, one could look across the hillside and see virtual explosions of reds, yellows, oranges, and browns, with evergreens and blue lakes and rivers speckled throughout the landscape. The view, combined with temperatures that remind me of biting crisp, cool apples, makes me feel more energetic and in tune with the environment. It's ironic that nature seems most vibrant and alive when in fact, it's getting ready for winter slumber.

We all have our favorite colors, and it's no surprise that different hues can actually affect our moods and lifestyles. In the metaphysical world, colors also have significant meaning. Those who can read auras, or the energy field around all of us, associate colors with certain traits and moods. Here are a few basics:

Red: Strength, health, vigor, lust, danger, charity
Orange: Encouragement, adaptability, stimulation, attraction, kindness
Yellow: Persuasion, charm, confidence, jealousy, joy, comfort
Green: Finance, fertility, luck, energy, charity, growth
Blue: Tranquility, understanding, patience, health, truth, devotion, sincerity
Indigo: Changeability, impulsiveness, depression, ambition, dignity
Violet: Tension, power, sadness, piety, sentimentality

Autumn in New England allows nature to express all of these moods through the vivid display of colors. Color is an incredibly important part of all of our lives because it also affects our psyches. There's a reason you love that blue sweater so much or that red dress. When walking along the path of life, don't forget to stop and appreciate the colors.

Supernaturally yours,

Jeff Belanger
Mayor of
