    Arrow Teutonic Color Associations

    Here is a list of colours and their importance/meaning in Teutonic/Norse customs/magic/beliefs.

    RED Red is seen as the most powerful colour, associated with life and blood, and generally the colour used most often in magic. Runes were often painted in red 'To make Red', giving the Runic inscription power & protection.

    BLUE Blue in its lighter 'sky' hue is the colour of revealed wisdom and hope. In the darker shades (such as night or deep sea tones), it is the colour for hidden wisdom and mystery....also the colour of Odhinn's cloak.

    WHITE White is the colour of intensity of spirit, aspiration and activity. Heimdall is the whitest of Gods, shining bright with power. The English word 'white' comes from the Anglo-Saxon hvit , meaning 'silver white'. Silver and white are functionally identical.

    PURPLE Purple can be seen as a shade of either Red or Blue.

    GREEN Both Green and Brown are the colours of the earth. Dark Green is associated with the Vanic mysteries, and light Green with birth and the Vanic power springing forth. Green is also associated with the fertility & the hidden mysteries of water. Also to attract love. Brown is associated with the Dokkalfar (Dark Elves).

    GOLD Gold, like Red, is the colour of power & life. Like white, it is associated with spiritual aspiration and intensity of energy (although more earthy in nature).

    YELLOW Yellow being the colour of fertilization and ambition. The masculine partner to Green. It is the colour of the Sun's working upon the earth.

    BLACK. Black is the ultimate colour of concealment and mystery. A colour of stillness and death & the womb of rebirth.
