Chinese colorful Mid-Autumn Festival
Traditionally, Chinese people celebrate the colorful Mid-Autumn Festival at the beginning of October. On this day, it is customary to admire the full moon, gather in the family circle to remember the relatives and friends who are away from home. They launch colorful lanterns into the sky and give each other “yuebiny” (lunar gingerbread). Meanwhile, the origin of the Feast is associated with a legend.
Once in ancient China lived a skilful archer named Hou Yi and his wife Chang’e. Once on the celestial vault instead of a single sun came just ten, resulting in a terrible drought. Emperor Yao, who ruled China then, was very worried because of the suffering of his people and asked Hou Y to bring down nine suns. The archer coped with the task. In gratitude, the emperor gave him the elixir of immortality. Besides, he advised not to take it immediately, but first spend a year in prayer. When Hou Yi was not at home, Chang’e discovered the elixir and drank it, because of what it got up into the air and flew to the moon. After death, Hou I ascended into the sun. Since then, once a year – the 15th day of the 8th month – Hou Yi and Chang’e meet.

Life in color inspirational quotes
Whoever refuses the color, he dissolves in the cold. For he loses his soul, which means that immortality is possible. Who will voluntarily give his color to another without remnant? What could be worse than death after death? (Turgor)
And I also know that when your true color tears you from the inside, you can wrap yourself in ten layers of white or black, nothing will help. It’s like trying to plug a waterfall with a handkerchief. (Mariam Petrosyan, the house in which …)
Color can soothe and excite, create harmony and cause shock. It can wait for miracles, but it can cause catastrophe. Jacques Vienot
Entrance Door Color According to Feng Shui
What color is the best for the front door? First of all, a good color is a color that combines and resonates with the design and color of the house, as well as its surroundings. But such a thing as “the best color” does not exist at all! However, some books and feng shui teachings say that the favorable color for the entrance door is red. In fact, this concept stems from the Chinese tradition.
In ancient China, there were very strict rules regarding homes: people could build houses with various rooms, but the color of the door needed to be made of a certain color. In fact, the color of doors should be in accordance with the position of a person in society and the position held in the government. In particular, most people were forbidden to have red doors. Red color denoted the status of the nobility. Therefore, the red door, perceived as wealthy and noble, meant that behind this door lived rich people.
However, this is a cultural value, not a universal one. Accordingly, if something is not universally true, it is not feng shui.
Choosing wedding color palette
One of the first decisions in preparing for a wedding is the choice of its color. All the details of the wedding decor should harmoniously blend, creating a general holiday atmosphere. Meanwhile, there are several basic rules for choosing a color solution. First, when choosing the color of a wedding, it is worth taking into account the time of the year. There are colors that are associated with each of them or perfectly fit into the landscape. Bright pink and orange in the wedding palette, for example, are more suitable for organizing a winter wedding. Indeed, these colors look very harmonious against the background of gray skies and white snow. But in the spring you should pay attention to the pastel colors. Nature wakes up, and tenderness is in the air.
However, the main is a competent accent setting, because overdone with shades is very easy. Then the whole ceremony will look, at least, strangely and excessively colorfully. In addition, the color of the wedding depends on its theme. In particular, the wedding in the Asian style involves the use of red, green, brown or gold. Indeed, it is difficult to imagine a bridal luxurious oriental tale without bright, rich flowers and a large tent. But a refined wedding in the style of Tiffany – it’s blue, turquoise and mint in a combination of black or chocolate.
Effects of color nutrition on human body
“What color do you choose?” I think that in the foreseeable future this issue will become common not only for the seller, tailor or hairdresser, but also for cooks or waiters. Color nutrition is our near future. What is the basis of this confidence? On almighty statistics. Every year with each month the number of those who master color nutrition is increasing.
In everyday life, we do not think much about the color scheme of what we eat. And when we pursue something delicious, then, as a rule, we do not fix specifically the color of what we eat and do not make any conclusions about ourselves by the color of food. However, the color of the selected product can tell us a lot. And not only prompt, but also change the speed of our thinking, for example. It can help to solve this or that problem, or it can interfere with its solution, if we chose the wrong color. Meanwhile, about the influence of the color of food on the human body, on its behavior and thinking knew even in ancient China and Japan. Besides, the Japanese even today mainly nourish children and themselves according to the color of food. Not the quality of food, not the chemical composition of food, namely color. And specially decorate it. Why? Different color of food develops different parts of the brain.
Human energy field color meaning
Throughout life, a person’s aura constantly changes, depending on which path a person chooses, and what actions he does. In addition, it depends on whether he improves or stands on the involutionary path. Meanwhile, by the color of the aura, you can determine the nature, temperament, and hobbies of a person. In fact, the meaning of the colors of the aura can help to intuitively determine your colors, and draw conclusions about what to change in yourself and what to strive for.
In particular, the red color of the aura means stable health, striving for success, vivacity, strength, selfless love and energy. This color indicates good leadership abilities, as well as good sexual potential and ambition. But also speaks of a tendency to irritability and quick temper.
Chamarel wonderful Seven-Color Earths
French Terres des Sept Couleurs, known as Seven-colored sand, is a formation and a famous tourist attraction located in the south-west of Mauritius, near the village of Chamarel. Occupied by sand dunes, this small area consists of sand of seven different colors (red, brown, purple, green, blue, purple and yellow). Noteworthy, the sands of these colors randomly located in different layers, and dunes, painted in different colors, seem surreal. Meanwhile, this phenomenon is also on a small scale. For instance, if you mix two handfuls of different shades, eventually they will still be divided according to the color spectrum. Also noteworthy that the dunes are not subject to erosion despite the torrential tropical rains of Mauritius.
The sands formed from basalt (effusive rock) into clay, which then turned into ferralite soil due to complete hydrolysis. Aluminum and iron, the two main components, give the blue-purplish and red-black color, respectively. According to researchers, the difference in shades is a consequence of the cooling of molten volcanic rocks at different external temperatures. However, it is still not clear why they did not mix.
