The Subtleties of Eye Color in Witchcraft

Although we tend to categorize eye color in absolute terms (blue, brown, green) eye color actually comprises many subtle hues.  Perhaps yours appear gray in low light, but deeply blue in bright light.  Or maybe your brown eyes contain tiny gold flecks that make them appear more honey-colored in the sun.

Because your eyes reflect your own unique soul, no sweeping generalization applies.

However, the list below uses broad strokes to give you an idea of your eye “aura” and how to use your eye color in witchcraft and consciously in your magical practice.

Dark Brown Eyes

Key WordsDivination, protection magic, contemplation, secrets, dark moon.

What Your Eyes Say About YouYour eyes conceal your true thoughts well.  Exuding a mysterious energy that sometimes makes others feel unsettled, you tend to look through people, rather than at them.   You dislike small talk and superficial conversations.  Sometimes, this means being alone, but when you make a connection with someone, it’s a real connection.

How to Harness the Power of Your Eye Color in Witchcraft:  Consider experimenting with divination during the dark moon.  Your keen insight and natural spiritual courage makes you more willing than others to “see” things that trigger denial or fear in others.  Uniquely able to confront your demons leaves you at a great advantage–growth springs from a willingness to understand and appreciate where we need to improve.  Your unflinching eyes burn right through to the truth about who you are.  For better or worse, you always know where you stand.

Light Brown Eyes

Key WordsWarmth, authenticity, sociable, selfless.

What Your Eyes Say About YouThe warmth of your eyes draws others to you like a smoldering fire under a cold moon.  You enjoy the company of others and the feeling of being included in a large family–whether or not it’s the one you were born to.

How to Harness the Power of Your Eye Color in Witchcraft:  Try a simple flame meditation.  Sit in front of a candle of your choosing.  The scent or color may correspond to your intent, or it may be a pure, white, unscented candle.  Light the candle and stare at the flame for about 30 seconds.  Close your eyes and watch the “flame” imprinted on your vision.

Here are some favorite candles for simple flame meditation.

Deep Green Eyes

Key WordsBlending in, chameleon, growth, new life, emerging.

What Your Eyes Say About YouLucky you!  Among the rarest eye colors in the world, bright green eyes signify the early spring of a young soul.  The world constantly renews itself before your freshly colored irises.  You enjoy new experiences and a constantly rotating set of interests.  You possess a keen ability to blend in with your surroundings and a highly adaptable constitution.

How to Harness the Power of Your Eye Color in Witchcraft: Because you tend to absorb everything, you often wear out your Third Eye with all that you take in.  Refresh your psychic “sight” with this simple ritual:  On the night of the full moon, leave chamomile tea bags in the moonlight overnight.  Take a ritual bath and place the tea bags over your beautiful green eyes.  Relax and allow your psychic vision (your ability to see the unseen) recharge.  Then, face the world with a fresh perspective!

Light Blue Eyes

Key WordsHealing, compassion, connection, soothing aura.

What Your Eyes Say About YouYour eyes see through the shields others erect in defense of what hurts them.  With a knack for peering past others personas and into the most tender parts of their hearts.  You instinctively know how to both heal and to open those wounds.

If you’re being honest, you’ve probably done both.  It’s okay.  You’re human, just like the rest of us.  Others see themselves reflected in you.  Make them feel beautiful!

How to Harness the Power of Your Eye Color in Witchcraft: Try this simple meditation spell for healing a close relationship after an argument.  Sit down, face to face, with a person you feel comfortable with and loved by.  Set a timer for 20 minutes.  Take that person’s hands, and look deeply into his or her eyes for the entire 20 minutes.  If one of you looks away, start over (obviously, blinking is okay).  At the end of the 20 minutes, write down on two sheets of paper what you saw in each other’s eyes.  Bury the sheets of paper near the roots of a strong tree and promise to try to see things from the other person’s viewpoint more often.

Dark Blue Eyes

Key WordsWisdom, knowing, flow, hidden treasures.

What Your Eyes Say About YouYour eyes betray a hidden store of knowledge not often revealed to those around you.  You like to keep your cards close to the vest, and tend to trust only those closest to you.  You often lead multiple lives and tend to compartmentalize the people in them, perhaps because you know they would find understanding each other difficult.

How to Harness the Power of Your Eye Color in Witchcraft:  On the night of the full moon, fill a heat-safe glass bottle with 100% pure, organic olive oil. Then, fill a heat safe bowl with hot water.  Add blooming flower tea to the water. Take both outside under the moonlight.  Submerge the base of the bottle of olive oil in it a few inches, so that it stands up on its own and doesn’t float.  Meditate on the flowers opening under the moonlight and imagine your eyes are blooming open with them.  Taking care not to mix the water with the oil, anoint your eyelids with the 100% organic olive oil and bless yourself for “open sight.”

Tools for “Open Sight” ritual.


Gray Eyes

Key WordsStormy weather, drastic, visionary, complicated.

What Your Eyes Say About YouBorn with the eyes of a thundercloud, your quiet sky sometimes threatens to break into hurricane-force winds.  The underlying energy moves swiftly, changing the landscape of your soul with a single crack of thunder.  Simultaneously unpredictable and set in your ways, you’re brimming with untapped adventure.

How to Harness the Power of Your Eye Color in Witchcraft: Soak up all that powerful energy and use it!  Lay on the floor or in a bed on your back.  Place two small pieces of clear quartz  on both eyes and meditate, gathering the strength of your wildest impulses.  Imagine shooting all that power out of both eyes.  Use these super-charged stones in your spell work or leave them on the altar to maximize your intentions.
