Sagittarians are the eternal optimists. They have a happy-go-lucky and liberated outlook towards life and the jovial shades of pink support that energy.

A flamboyant and pretty colour, pink is also an instant mood lifter, which helps Sagittarians stay driven towards their goals and dreams.

As organised and cautious as they are, Capricorns are very authoritative in nature and it’s usually their way or the highway! Capricorns often find it difficult to focus on a single task, when their mind is running in multiple directions. Dark blue and black increases their focus, propels their ambitions into the right direction, and lends gravity and depth to their thinking, which is something the sun sign is always seeking.
