    What Do Hot Pink and Black Symbolize?

    What Do Hot Pink and Black Symbolize?

    In cultures around the world, different colors have different meanings. Hot pink and black are a popular color combination in the Western world, whether for everyday wear or for dressier occasions. Different symbolism is associated with each color.

    Native American
    1. In most Native American cultures, black is one of the four sacred colors, associated with the direction west. The sun sets in the west every night, which means black is associated with problems and sometimes death. But it also represents introspection and self-examination, as night is a time for inner thoughts and a quiet respite from the business of the day.

    Pink, while not commonly associated with the sacred colors, represents creativity and hard work. It is a blend of the sacred red and white---red representing dawn and the east, as well as blood and success; white representing the south and warmth, as well as peace and happiness.

    Japanese
    2. In Japan, black is the color of mystery and night. Many Japanese traditions associate black with femininity and the female nature. Some see the female nature as a threat, a potentially evil power, while others see it as alluring and provocative.

    Pink, on the other hand, is the color of childish innocence, of purity and youth. However, the pink blossoms of the cherry tree also represent the Japanese warriors who fell in battle right at the prime of their lives.

    India
    3. In India, black represents anger and inertia--even evil. Because of its connection with evil, however, black can also be worn and used to ward off evil spirits. If a child or a particularly lovely young woman is going out in public, she may use a black dot on her chin to ward off the evil eye, thought to be invoked by others who are jealous.

    Pink is associated with reflectivity and cooling. Jaipur, India, is known as the Pink City, because almost all of its buildings are painted in shades of pink. Legend has it that a simpleton in the Raja's court insulted the visiting Prince of Wales, calling him a "pink-faced monkey." In order to apologize and prove his honest intentions toward the Prince, the Raja ordered the entire city painted pink.

    Magical Practices
    4. In modern magical traditions such as Wicca or other forms of Paganism, colors play an important symbolic part in the rituals. They can be burned in candles, or worn during a ceremony to invoke certain images or energy. Black is used in most rituals as a binding color, used to prevent someone from doing harm, either to himself or to others. It can also be used for personal protection or to repel negative energy.

    Pink appears in many love spells, as it is the color of romance and affection (not to be confused with red, the color of passion and lust). Pink is also used in spells of planetary goodwill to heal or protect the earth, and as a spell for nurturing young children or growing plants.

    Modern Fashion
    5. In modern fashion, you can find some of the same associations with each color. Black often represents stability or conservatism, because it is worn to work or on serious occasions. Because it is the color worn at funerals, black can represent death. It appears as a symbol of "bad guys" and rebellion.

    Pink is a warm, fun color that represents love and romance. It is often worn on Valentine's Day and is a popular choice of color in the roses given on that day, too. However, hot pink can be rebellious as well, especially when combined with black; it is a popular color combination among the punk crowd.

    In the UK it's Breast Cancer. I've just bought a little notebook in hot pink and black, one of a range of sizes, and part of the money is going towards Breast Cancer research.

    Pink is used in the US for Breast Cancer Research
    They're using pink gloves in the OR & have a happy
    pink glove dance to raise more awareness for Breast
    Cancer Research.

    hmmm I'm not disregarding or disagreeing with anyone on this thread ...... you implied that I don't understand what people are saying.......( again you confuse me!?!)

    I really don't take take things too seriously ......and my sense of humour can be quite an acquired taste, particularly on boards like this, I feel people can be quite held back and a little anal ( too serious constantly projecting a 'holier than thou' persona)

    granted there has to be a certain etiquitte on these kind of forums..... but I often find myself being repremanded behind the scenes!! ahahahahahahahaha think I almost got banned on the old Reiki board ahahahaha

    for about 7 years I posted on the Doors board ( as in the band the Doors)... and people are just fantastic on there, kindred spirits !! they constantly take the p*ss outta each other and have a damn good time.....they're straight talking folk...and I was glad to be a part of it for so long..... I left because I got sick and tired of the religious dogma that got spewed....I still don't understand how so many people on the planet subscribe to man made religion..... anyhoo.....I'm waffling again..... my point is, I'm used to being myself on boards and unfortunately not all boards allow for that...

    I just don't think you get me VJ.....and thats cool lots of different books make for an interesting library farao

    As an aside, I wonder if VJ is typing in his native language and it gets translated to English automatically? Likewise, I wonder if the forum translates English into his native language automatically?

    Shakti ~ Rising: I did get banned for a
    few days on the other board. Although the
    Moderator who did it will deny it.

    We are on a new slate here and hope that
    folks can express themselves. It takes time
    on these boards to begin to understand where
    others are coming from without labeling each
    other. Accepting each other with un-conditional
    love seems part of the Reiki principles.

    I love your style and enjoy your postings. You
    have much to offer. sunny

    is to help ourselves and others heal.

    in profile, preferences, a person can choose their location/language. it'll display the forum in their onw language. we all gotta type in english though. or, use an online translator, such as google has.

    Thanks for that Wayne. English can get really lost in translation so we need to cut the non-native speakers some slack.

    for sure, Smile . It's kinda clear what VJ was saying though, so i understand sharons response. Although, knowing VJ as i do, he's a very kind soul, and meant no harm at all, and said it because of love/helpfulness. i'm sure all's cool now anyhow. beat

    I spoke English when I immigrated to the US.
    For folks who do travel from one English
    speaking country to another, there are many
    words and phrases that change meaning. North
    South East West in most towns/countries have
    different dialects. I had to slow down so I
    could be understood. Learning a different way
    to structure my sentences, the obvious one re-
    writing words like colour, honour no "u"
    writing 12/6/09 instead of 09/12/06. Driving on
    the other side of the road. pronouncing the words
    differently as in you say tomateo I say tomato.
    I have many friends from different parts of the
    world and English is a 2nd language many times they
    struggle to bring the right word into a conversation

    On english forums even English speaking folks some
    times need a statement cleared up by another poster.
    Pamela Miles had a topic about "Reiki not a Word "
    as the topic continues on her blog she posted this NY
    article........
    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/06/fashion/06love.html?em
    I found it interesting that it seems to tie in with
    what has been said here.

    Even different countries have different meanings for colors
    as shown in the first posting on this thread.

    You got banned!! ? ahahaha....looks like your style is an acquired taste too Bridget!........ and thanks for the kind words XXX

    I agree that we gotta cut non english speaking folk some slack.........but as we all know not only do many meanings get lost in translation , many meanings get lost on message boards becuase of the one dimensional way we have to express ourselves...... I often get folk wrong and visa versa.....sometimes we can pick up the energy and emotion with which a message was posted but more often than not its quite a disconnected form of communication..... we have no eyes to connect with, no body language to read, no direct energy to pick up..... so we're all trying our best with it......

    I don't mean any disrespect to Vj in anyway........but I still think we are in different books most of the time, regardless of language !! ahahaha bashburn
