    Here are the lucky colors for 2019’s Year of the Earth Pig

    Red

    The main element of this year is Earth, and complementing energies include Fire and Metal. According to entertainment website Karma Weather, the lucky colors to wear are those that symbolize the Fire element, which feeds the earth. It includes shades of red, as well as orange, and pink.

    In an interview with GMA News, feng shui adviser Johnson Chua suggests wearing clothes in the shades of “red agate or red garnet, which can boost our power and boost our emotions to positivity.”

    Blue

    If you’re planning to combine white (metal) with green (wood), Karma Weather notes that metal can cut wood, so it’s important to add a combination of colors specific to water, which is blue or black.

    If there are lucky colors, are there also unlucky colors? Yes, but it will depend on your birth year and Chinese zodiac. According to the website The Chinese Zodiac, those who were born in the years of the Ox, Snake, Horse, Rooster, and Pig should avoid wearing black. Cyan Blue is not advisable for those born in the years of the Tiger, Dragon, and Monkey. Dogs and Goats should avoid wearing green, Rabbits won’t attract luck if they’re wearing white, and Rats should avoid beige.
