I always wonder why yellow has a so bad press. In France the superstition goes that if you wear yellow you husband will cheat on you (absolutely stupid but so enduring that it is a no-no to offer to a woman a yellow garment).

Searching for the Mutus Liber in color (my favorite book - no text just pictures) I found this article in which the color yellow is said to represent "weakness" see below:

The Resala-ye lama'at was resala-ye estelahat of ‘Iraqi edited by Dr. Javad Nurbakhsh, states:

"Redness represents strength in the traveling of the Path.
Yellowness is said to represent weakness in the traveling of the Path.
Blueness is said to represent the blending of loving-kindness (mahabbat) with whatever is other than loving-kindness.
Greenness represents absolute perfection."(l)

In the book of Inger Naess - Color Energy - What colour are you ?
Yellow people are said to be hungry for knowledge. Is that considered a weakness in esoterism ? Just wondering !

Excuse my ignorance I am just beginning to get my nose into esoterism
but I wonder why yellow has such an ill repute when for me it is the colour of the sun and of the intellect as it is said that a yellow pad help the mind to concentrate ? Besides when you mix yellow and blue you have green which represents absolute perfection according to the text above !

Best,
Claudia
