What Does The Color Purple Mean?

Have you ever wondered what the color purple means? Purple combines the stimulation of the color red and the calm of the color blue. It soothes the mind and nerves, uplifts the spirit, offers a sense of spirituality, and encourages creativity. Because of purple’s combination of warm and cool colors, it can evoke creativity and boost one’s imagination or it can cause moodiness and negativity. Purple is often associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power, and ambition.

Different variations of purple can convey different meanings:

  • Light purples symbolize light-hearted, feminine energy, delicacy, and romance
  • Dark purples symbolize intellect and dignity
  • Bright purples symbolize riches and royalty

People whose favorite color is purple are often gentle, free spirits. They are usually very understanding, supportive, compassionate, and are the type of person others go to for help. The color purple inspires the imagination and dreams. Those who like purple are often generous givers, only wanting friendship in return. These people are also very ambitious with their dreams and desires, and often have a yearning to help others and the world at large.

Lupus patients embody the meaning behind the color purple everyday. They are inspiring individuals who, although battling with such a cruel and mysterious disease, have such uplifting and gentle spirits. Instead of constantly worrying about themselves and their needs, they often reach out to others who are faced with lupus in an attempt to create a powerful community of support and strength. Their creativity and ambition help to motivate those around them to take action in the fight against lupus. Lupus patients inspire everyone at LFACT to constantly find new and innovative means of raising lupus awareness. No one should ever have to feel as though they are blindly navigating their way through this disease. With support from lupus patients, doctors, family, friends, and foundations like LFACT no one will ever have to go through their journey with lupus alone.
