Breaking Down the Purple Aura

Have you ever considered your aura? That energetic hue that surrounds your body and gives more insight into your spirit…

We all have auras, and learning not only to see but to interpret them gives you more information about the wonderful world we live in, as well as its many magical creatures.

An aura is a field of energy that surrounds our bodies – and if you look closely, with all three of your eyes, you’ll begin to see that this body of energy has a slight tint to it, like a translucent field of artistic essence.

Everyone has their own unique aura, even your pets! Learning to see them and interpret their meaning can help you understand what those you love and yourself are going through, even who you are at a fundamental level. While auras can change depending on certain circumstances, most people tend to project a certain shade for the majority of their lives.

Today, we’re here to talk about the purple aura and what it means when you have one. This royal color is one of the most majestic in the color kingdom, and possessing a purple aura is certainly something to be celebrated.

The Rainbow of Purple Auras Explained

While there aren’t quite as many shades of the purple aura as there are other colors – purple is a combination of blue and red, the color with the fewest variations of hues – there are still a couple to explore!

Violet

Violet is another word for purple – that royal color that comes to mind when you think of this shade – a mixture of red and blue. This is the color associated with the Crown chakra, which is one of the keys to understanding this aura.

Both the Crown chakra and the purple aura share two themes, which are consciousness and spirituality. Those with a purple aura are deeply spiritual and connected to the energy of the Universe. There’s a sense of awareness, of enlightenment, within those with an aura of those lovely violet shade. In fact, these folks are so aware that they often possess psychic abilities.

This aura also indicates heightened empathy for others, and those with a purple aura are more likely to be emotional and spiritual empaths. In relationships, they simply understand what the other person is feeling and do their best to create a safe space of love and understanding.

Brighter shades of violet are more closely associated with spirituality, intuition, psychic abilities, and heightened empathy. Darker or muddier shades of purple may indicate a spiritual or conscious blockage – it’s time to balance the Crown chakra when you notice this color emanating from your spiritual field!

Magenta is a reddish-purple that has a bright, lively energy – and you can bet that those with a magenta aura give off the same exciting vibes. Those with magenta auras are independent, original, and unique. Like purple, magenta is also a mixture of red and blue, but with more even proportions; therefore, this color has ties to both the Crown and the Root chakras.

That means those with a magenta aura have a deep connection with both the physical realm – the Root chakra – and the intellectual realm – the Crown chakra. This is an excellent and delicate balance of two essential traits in life, stability, and creativity.

These people aren’t afraid to embrace their eccentricity – in fact, they enjoy being one of the misfits. Their individualistic personalities are dynamic and enthusiastic, and their wills are strong. You won’t catch someone with a magenta aura following the pack – they pave their own path.

Lavender is an ethereal shade of purple with a light, mystical energy. When you encounter someone with a lavender aura, you may feel you’re in the presence of a magical individual – and that’s because you are. These folks possess an otherworldly quality that’s hard to pin down.

Lavender is a light shade of purple, associated with spirituality and mysticism. If you’ve got a lavender aura yourself, there’s a good chance you’re living in your own fantasy world – and you have little-to-no desire to spend time in reality. You may have a deep connection to other realms or possess psychic abilities. Some people may find your enchanting spirit frustrating, especially those who are more grounded or focused on physical reality.

Because of this, some individuals with a lavender aura may be shy around others or feel that they don’t fit in. Theirs is a sensitive personality, so it’s important that you’re kind and compassionate with these beautiful souls.

At the end of the day, this is an aura that represents an individual who is confident in themselves, comfortable in their mystical existence. And who would want it to be any other way? Embrace your heavenly aura and your imaginative spirit.

Purple Aura Personality Strengths

It doesn’t matter which shade of purple your aura falls under, there are a few traits each hue shares:

  • Creativity
  • Spirituality
  • Enlightenment
  • Intelligence
  • Empathy
  • Emotional sensitivity
  • Awareness

How the Purple Aura Connects to Your Love Life

Individuals with purple auras are not interested in shallow or surface relationships. They get bored or even irritated with small talk and prefer to reach into someone’s soul to see what they find.

You desire depth, you want something spiritual, moving, something out of this world. You will probably have a difficult time trying to settle for anything that doesn’t speak to you on a spiritual level; but remember, all that depth requires hard work.

Purple Auras in the Professional World

Those with a purple aura are naturally compassionate, empathetic, and intellectual people. They’re also creative and tend to excel in positions that offer a certain amount of flexibility and creative freedom. These traits work particularly well in the following positions:

  • Performing arts
  • Visual arts
  • Clothing or jewelry design
  • Writer
  • Teacher
  • Actor
  • Entrepreneur
  • Inventor

If your aura is any shade of purple, think of it as cause for celebration! You’re one of the mystical ones, one of the spiritual people who seem to understand the world around them on a psychic level. Your personality is royal, like the color that surrounds you.
