There are basically three guiding principles for perceiving colors: One is Shat Chakras and their associate colors; Pancha Maha Bhuta or five fundamental elements; and planetary stars or cosmic phenomena
Shat Chakra focuses on seven colors. In yogic traditions, chakras are energy points, the best translated as plexus or vortex. The seven chakras are Muladhara, Swadisthana, Manipura, Anahata, Vishuddha, Aajna and Sahasra. Their associated colors are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet respectively. Our body as well as the entire cosmos is composed of Pancha Maha Bhuta, five fundamental elements. They are Prithvi (the earth), Jala (the water), Teja (the fire), Vayu (the air), and Akasha (the sky). And their associated colors are yellow, blue, red, green, and white or light blue respectively. Similarly there are nine planetary stars which are believed to be cosmic influencer and to have been influencing on life and the earth.
