Venus governs music, arts, literature and sentiments and emotions. So, the first
note of music 'Sa' and colour blue were entrusted to it. The blue colour of it acts
like a medicine. Colour blue and note 'Sa' represent peace. They keep the nervous
system in order and pacify anxiety and anger. 'Sa' is used in every instrument of
music to keep its rhythm proper.
Jupiter is a planet of optimism. It represents vastness. The more the number of
disciples the more expanded will be the Ashram of a Guru. Violet colour is powerful
and represents optimism. It is used as a guide as the second note of music 'Re'
The Sun governs life. Everybody likes its golden rays. Its rays look golden during
morning. The third note of music 'Ga' renders power and strength.
Reddish blue is the colour of Saturn. Saturn represents gloom. Gloom grows in the
mind of a philosopher while he is in deep meditation. This gloom represents reddish
blue. Diligence is its chief element. It possesses the depth of a sea i.e. it is
as deep as a sea. It is closely related to the fifth note of music, which signifies
Mercury is said to be associated with yellow colour. This is the most glowing colour.
Mercury symbolises dynamism, wisdom and conscience and eloquence in speech. We can
see a thing properly while it is in light. Mercury is the most lustrous planet.
So, it always keeps everybod awakened i.e. it keeps the mind concious. The fifth
note of music has also the capacity to keep everybody awakened like a baby does
by making a sound of Pa------Pa-------Pa.
Moon is associated with green colour. You might have observed that a silver coin
catches green stains. In a pond, the water contains green moss. The rays of Moon
make the earth green that makes us happy. The sixth note of music 'Dha' represents
metal and the Moon governs all the chemicals.
Red is the colour of Mars. It represents struggle, injuries, blood, wounds, death,
murder etc. It also represents sharp, pointed and shining things. All these things
creat pricking sensations in eyes. Likewise, red colour symbolises fear, which is
the symbol of Mars. The last note of music 'Ni' shows the intensity of the same.
