The color yellow evokes lazy summer days, sipping lemonade under the warm sun, or walking on the beach in bare feet with a warm breeze lifting your hair.

Yellow is a warm color and that represents the air element in the Wiccan tradition. It is the color of the intellect; of thoughts, communication, creativity, logic and progress.

Wear yellow to be uplifted and to carry the warmth of the sun wherever you go. A yellow raincoat will brighten up a rainy day. Decorate with yellow to bring the sunshine into any dark, dreary room and to inspire a feeling of coziness and create an environment conducive to the amiable exchange of ideas.


Yellow is associated with the solar plexus chakra and represents personal power, confidence, and self-expression in spiritual symbolism.

In witchcraft, yellow candles and crystals like citrine are commonly used for enhancing communication, mental clarity, and boosting creativity.

Yellow is linked to the element air and the planet Mercury, making it ideal for spells and rituals related to communication, travel, and intellect.

The color yellow can be utilized to invoke the energy of joy, optimism, and abundance, aligning with the positive qualities of the sun and its life-giving properties.

When working with yellow in magick, consider incorporating herbs like St. John’s Wort and marigold, as well as visualization techniques to harness its vibrant energy for manifestation and healing spells.
