What is an Aura? 

An aura is a bubble of energy that surrounds every living thing. Plants, animals, and even the earth have auras. Auras are different in color and intensity and reflect the energy of the living being they surround. Today, we’re going to be looking at blue auras and their meanings. 

Before we start, it’s important to know that auras influence and respond to your body and spirit. For example, your personality can influence the color of your aura but an uncleansed aura can also cause physical illness. 

Thoughtforms, past life attachments, astral objects—all of these things can reside within the energy field, and affect how a person functions. Energy healers and some psychics can read the field, detect these distortions, and also see events that are in the potential phase before they manifest into physical existence.

So, what’s the meaning of the color blue?

Blue auras are often associated with calm, sensitive personalities, but within blue auras there are many different shades. Your energy has something in common with the sky and the sea, but just like these elements, it might be still or choppy, bright, or cloudy. So, what kind of blue are you, and what does that mean for your daily life?

Learn what your specific type of blue aura actually says about your mood, personality, and spirituality well being.

What is the Basic Meaning of a Blue Aura?  

What does the color blue mean? Before diving into different shades, let’s look at the basics. In art and interior design, blue is a calming color, psychologically linked to a feeling of tranquility and relaxation. Unlike warm colors, like red and orange, which conjure and correspond to emotions as heated as the flames that produce them, blue is a cool color that’s linked to nature’s calmest elements—and humanity’s calmest tendencies. While red auras surround passionate, self-possessed people, blue auras surround compassionate, intuitive people.

Auras themselves are unique electromagnetic fields, which reflect the spiritual conditions and dominant chakras of the people they surround. Your aura, quite simply, is an oval-shaped field of light and vibration that shows the current state of your physical, mental, and spiritual self. It may reveal important truths about your life and your moods, and if you know this light is blue, you’re already off to a good start…but you’re not quite there yet.

What Is the Spiritual Significance of a Blue Aura? 

The color of your aura tells you which chakra is dominant, your personality traits, and where you like to spend your time and energy. Different emotions and actions create different shades of physical and mental energy. Chakras are spinning forces of energy in our bodies that serve as our life force, so it makes sense that the term comes from the Sanskrit word for “wheel.” Seven main chakras in the body run in a line from the base of the spine to the top of your head. They connect your physical body and your spiritual energies.

With the blue aura, shades that are closer to black than white typically represent a hurt  spirit. Colors closer to white, on the other hand, represent a purer and more successful spirit. 

Your dominant aura color usually corresponds to your most dominant chakra. In other words, your blue chakra is as dominant as your aura is blue. Each chakra is linked to a different color of the rainbow and a different part of your body, from the red root (lower body) to the violet crown (brain). So, which chakra is blue, and what does that mean about your aura?

Chakras in Relation to the Body

The thyroid or throat chakra, the fifth of seven chakras, is linked to the thyroid and the color blue. If you have a rich, royal blue chakra, you are deeply in tune with your throat chakra and therefore your voice. The blue chakra, or throat chakra, is strongly linked to honesty, self-expression, and good speech and communication skills. The more dominant this chakra, the more likely you are to exhibit these skills and tendencies.

What Does a Blue Aura Say About Your Personality?

People with blue auras are sensitive, deep thinkers and are in tune with their true self and voice. They value honesty, self-expression, and communication skills. While auras are constantly changing, if blue is consistently showing up in your energy field, take it as a sign you’re feeling empowered to speak and live your truth.

What Shade of Blue is Your Aura?

Each color of the rainbow actually represents a multitude of different shades and tones, and the same goes for auras. After all, these auras reflect humans and no two of us are alike. Before you can evaluate the meaning of your blue aura, you’ll need to figure out the shade of blue.

To start, is your aura true blue, or does it lean toward green or indigo? Other shades may be present in your aura, and they may also be muddy or vibrant, light or dark. Brightness means positive energy, while dark or muddy shades mean negativity or trouble. 

Other colors mean that you might have some traits not associated with blue. Check out our articles on pink and white auras to see where those colors might be coming from.

Here are some of the most common different colors of blue. What does your particular shade say about your personality traits and behaviors?


Edging toward green on the color spectrum, a turquoise aura reflects a connection to the immune system, which could mean your personality skills are perfect for a healing profession. You are sensitive and compassionate, and your body and mind are quick to adapt to threats and soothe negative emotions or events, which may not always look like calmness to others. As long as you have healthy outlets for your empathy, a turquoise aura is a good indication that you have a positive effect on others.


The purest blue of any blue aura shade, royal blue is so strongly connected to sensitivity that it sometimes suggests clairvoyant abilities. Whether or not you’re in touch with a higher spiritual plane, you’re likely to be generous, open, giving, and have a well-developed sense of intuition and empathy. You’re not afraid to embrace new opportunities and environments, because you’re not chained to any permanent state or clouded by fear or negativity.


Auras that are light, bright, or semi-transparent, reflect more positive energy than auras with dark, muddy tones, which suggest negative energy and negative moods. The lighter your blue aura, the more peaceful and positive your personality probably is. Light blue is a serene, communicative color, and light blue auras are linked to clarity, honesty, and serenity. While all light shades are associated with positive interactions, light blue has a particularly strong link to good communication skills.


The presence of gray, shadowy, or muddy tones could mean exactly the same thing about your energy: it’s dark. Cloudy, muddy, or opaque blue auras may belong to people who are insecure, rather than embrace honesty and communication. Because blue auras often surround sensitive people, this fear can be particularly difficult, and particularly influential over your decisions, if you don’t know how to control your own intuition and voice. If you have a cloudy or muddy blue aura, you might be afraid to truly express yourself.


Does your aura resemble a shade somewhere between deep blue and deep purple? A blue aura with shades of indigo may indicate a personality that tends toward deeper, more intuitive feelings. After all, indigo is linked to the third eye chakra, and indigo auras indicate deep intuition and sensitivity. Because blue and indigo are next to one another on the color spectrum, staying calm and communicating well are skills that often go hand-in-hand with relating to others and feeling deeply.
