Colour Wheel

Talismanic Wheel Of Influence

Talismanic Colour Wheel

This Great Wheel of Life shows the entire year and the entire color spectrum as they naturally flow – bringing you the knowledge of your place and time.

On the Great Wheel the colours flow from the dark indigos and blues of the winter sky through the promise of spring in the melting turquoise waters of the brooks and lakes as they are freed of ice. The colours change to the greens of spring, then to the bright yellows of the hot summer sun. The colours then start to darken, first to the oranges and reds of the autumn leaves then further as the Earth moves into winter, more into the amethysts, violets, and indigos of the now barren landscapes devoid of most plants, but still vibrant with the natural earth tones of the minerals and rocks

The natural colour wheel shows the progression of life and colour on the planet earth. In contrast to astrological signs and other birthstone lists, the colour wheel shows us the colour of our birth time on earth. The second ring of the wheel indicates the time associated with the colours. The wheel actually is read in counterclockwise order. Start from the winter solstice at the top and follow the colour wheel and the year around to the left. The second inner ring shows the days of the year as the year and the colour changes progress through the greens of spring, the yellows of summer, and the reds of autumn.

Not only is the Talismanic Colour Wheel of Influence a depiction of the natural order of life through the year, it is also a depiction of the natural order of human life. The year starts as the days become longer at the Winter Equinox. Our lives start at birth. Our lives swing around the same wheel. We start as babies helpless and trusting to other for our care. Then, like other parts of nature, in our springtime of life we experience a period of rapid physical and intellectual growth as we find our way to adulthood and maturity. And, just like other life on Earth, a high summer period of young adulthood occurs when we have the enthusiasm, joy, and physical vigor of youth. We then have usually found our mates and paths and, as we mature into full adulthood, the time of passion arrives. We have found our loves, both physical and spiritual. As we mature and gather experience our lives turn inward with reflection and we see things for their real value. In the fall of our lives, our insights and understanding of our place in the cosmos grows.  And we, in the winter of our lives realise periods of high creativity, and growing wisdom.

The Talismanic Colour Wheel of Influence shows us the dual nature of colour and influence. It shows us that our cycles as people are aligned with the natural cycles of nature. Upon refection, how could this not be so?  We are products of this earth.
