indigo – violet This depends a great deal on what you associate with these colours.

Violet: Mostly appears in dreams containing a deep sense of ones eternal nature and the life that includes, but stretches beyond the body. It may also include intuitive awareness or universal love. A wisdom arising from an extended awareness.

The flower violet suggest shyness, perhaps a passive quietness, as suggested by the idiom, a shrinking violet.

Also a girl’s name that dozed quietly for decades, Violet was popular a hundred years ago, then began its steep descent by 1920, bottoming out in the early 1980s. But it started rising again about a decade ago and climbed even more sharply after Garner and Affleck chose it for their daughter. Today, Violet is near the top of the charts, joining other such popular flower names as Lily, Daisy, and Rose. Viola is the Italian and Scandinavian version, used by Shakespeare in Twelfth Night. Violetta is the frillier, more operatic version.
