Green is the colour of balance and growth. It can mean both self-reliance as a positive and possessiveness as a negative, but nonetheless it is a hue of spring, of renewal and rebirth. It renews and restores depleted energy. It is the sanctuary away from the stresses of modern living, restoring us back to a sense of well being. If green is your colour this Valentine’s remember your ability to love and nurture ourselves and others unconditionally as a natural peacemaker.
