Сolor of the Year 2016 by the company Pantone: correct forecast or misleading?
This year, company Pantone was very late to the decision. And contrary to custom, it turned out to be as much as two colors: Pink Quartz and Serenity. And this is not the fault of Mercury retrograde period that will start only in early January 2016. Of course, it was unusual for the average consumer, who gladly takes up new proposals, particularly if they come from such a reputable company. Two colors instead of just one was also the result of strong differences of opinion of experts on color forecasting. Representatives of Pantone describe «dual color» using such concepts as the new needs of the present time, special feeling, etc. And they formed a pretty convincing picture.
Let’s look at this option in terms of Fashion Astrology. Indeed, in our disposal there are powerful astrological techniques that no longer anybody has. They are based on samples of the spectral radiation of the planets and colors of the decades of Zodiac signs, developed in conjunction with the St. Petersburg astrologers Semira and Vitaly Vetash (astrolingua.ru). At the time, when we created a forecast for Color of the Year 2016, the company Pantone has not yet declared its forecast. And we also had moments of doubt: what kind of color to choose as the main color of the year. As a result of calculations, weighing the pros and cons, we have chosen the color of Libra sign. This sign has a few pastel colors, including tender pink and azure blue. Both shades are related to Venus. Our task was to choose one of them. We chose a pink shade. Why? Let’s try to explain.
Throughout 2016 the opposition between Jupiter and Neptune in Virgo in Pisces formed. Neptune in this pair is stronger. Its traditional colors: purple and lilac. This explains the choice of the company Pantone in favor of light lilac: Serenity. We look at the aspects of planets that bring novelty aspect. Transit of Neptune in Pisces takes as much as 14 years. Therefore, we do not choose the color of this sign for our forecast. In 2016, we draw attention to another aspect: the opposition between Jupiter in Libra and Uranus in Aries. In astrology aspect of the opposition is like a weak link. Fire nature of Aries sign contributes to the main pink color, making it richer and more expressive. Therefore we choose pink, not blue.
For astrologers, who are engaged in reading the signs of heaven, and transfer them to the earth language, justice is always paramount. Since writing this article, we wanted to show how much the company Pantone erred. But after spending a thorough analysis of the situation, we concluded that a dual Color of the Year also has a right to exist. However, this does not mean that in the future we will also choose two colors. We will use our proven methodology. And the stars will help us in this!
