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.

What do you see?

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.

      1. I have eyes that change from light blue to Grey but they also have a bright yellow in the middle center

        1. My 2 daughters have medium blue eyes but like you, they also have the yellow ring in the center of their eye. I’ve always called them coyote eyes. Never thought there could be a purpose or a deeper meaning to it until now.

        1. Mine are in the middle green and little bit yellow outside middle bleu with a little bit light grey

    2. My eyes change, if I am in a good mood they a light blue, if I am mad they are a light green, if I am hurt or not feeling well they are a light grey. How would I figure out mine?

    3. My brother’s eyes turn into different colors depending on his mood example red means mad or anger common knolage tbh

  1. What does it mean if you eye color changes due to how you feel in a environment. Depends on where I am my eyes go between dark brown to light brown and sometimes hazel

    1. I think this is a common thing a lot of people seem to experience. I would just take a look at the list and see which one seems to fit you the most.

      1. Mine are hazel and change with mood from mostly brown mixed with a little green but sometimes they are a mix of both evenly. what does that say for me?

    2. That isn’t a real thing. Eye color doesn’t change quickly. However complimentary colors in the environment will make the hue of your eyes appear different. But there is no such as thing as eyes that change color like that.

      1. Mine are blue with flecks of colour green and brown . I walk into work and will be told they look green some day’s. This does happen ? I see it myself.

        Many people have told me I have beautiful blue eyes, actually I have “deep green” eyes which vary between a turquoise and bottle green depending on what I’m wearing, my mood, my health, the season, the weather. I believe it’s far more likely that no one’s eyes stay the same all the time…
        My mother had beautiful golden hazel eyes, my daughter has green hazel eyes and my sister, brown hazel – all Scorpio’s, I believe hazel is the most common eye colour of Scorpio, and yes, they are a powerful people, sometimes to their own detriment…

          1. I have one brown and one green. Depending on mood,weather or clothes, the green turns to a gray.

      4. not true , my eyes change color due to the way im feeling, like when im my self happy go lucky im a grey, but when im crying and sad or mad they turn bright bright light green, and when im tired my eyes turn a soft blue………so really i beg to differ.

        peoples bodies, eyes, mouth ears, ex are all different from one another, just like there are people with 3 different colors in one eye, or some people have a blue eye and a brown eye ( my mother) ex ex.

        1. so to that person who says “eyes changing color is not true”, i think you are wrong because look at all the wonderful ppl leaving their comments about changing eye pigments……and When a baby is born their eye pigment is grey/blue, and then as the child grows, the eyes change color!

          1. My eye literlly went from money green today to a grayish to yellow in seconds the more mad I got today and I have the it also.

    And it isnt due to the light of the day or room

  3. I have all the colors in my eyes. They were sapphire blue until puberty, but my doctor said I had underdeveloped pigments. As I get older, they change even still. My license says hazel, but they really are all the colors at one time. Does this mean I shift depending on my season in life?

    1. Your eye color changes as you grow older (notice how almost all babies are born with blue eyes) and in some cases your true eye color is not established until the age of twelve.Your eyes can also dull in color as you get older due to lose of melanin. Hazel eyes also come in many different variety’s with many different color combinations (I know a girl with gold ,blue, brown and green in her eyes) and can change color depending on your lighting.

  4. This was really interesting! I’ll have to do some research into hazel eyes – mine are golden around the pupil, then green, and surrounded by a rim of dark blue. I wonder what that all means!

  5. I am blessed with changing colors as well as heterochromia. I simply use the color i am at the time to focus on corresponding issues. It used to be extremely rare, but I feel evolution is changing this, and possible more indigo children as well. My son has honey good eyes like I’ve never seen on anyone else. They just glow. Whatever you are blessed with, look inside and pray, the goddess will find a way to show you how to use the gifts you are given. Blessed be all !

    My grams used to say that I had mood stone eyes and natures hair because that changes colour with the seasons.

  8. Depending on what I’m wearing my eyes change from brown to green. I also noticed that it also depends on the time of the day and year. In the summer, daytime, they are brown, at night and in the fall and winter they’re green. If I’m in the dark for a long period of time, they turn light green.

  9. i have a question regarding eye colors. See, i have basically blue eyes for the most part, but eyes frequently change colors. i can have deep blue or green, silvery grey or sometimes a dark grey. Yes, the color change does reflect my moods or the color of clothing i wearing at the time. My color(s) do change frequently. So, should i use the current color at the time or just stay with blue. Thank You!!

  10. Mine change from blue to green and when they are green they have a ring of yellow around my pupil. What does thag mean?

  11. I hate to tell you this, but yeah it does. My green eyes can dark green if I’m angry and gray green when I relax. Usually they stay medium green, gold. Just depends on my mood.

  12. My eyes are distinctively Blue Grey. They tend to change color depending on moods. Which happens to be true for everyone… If you think skin color is the only thing that changes when our bodies go through emotions you better do some research. Mine for the most part are Blue Grey… They are blue with flecks of grey outlined in a darker hue. My eyes can look ice blue / grey to deep blue, all depending on my mood.

    Plus it’s a known fact that people can see colors differently, and that lighting can make colors look different… It’s why many paint and hardware stores have a display where you can see how a paint color sample can appear under different types of lighting.

  13. Someone told me my eyes are sable… not sure if that’s a “real” color. LOL. My eyes are brown with a red tinge, I would say. I have noticed when I’m really angry, the red is quite pronounced.

  14. I have light brown eyes and they seem like fire if I stare at the sun. Your description is so right!
    I don’t know why. Tuesday my aunt passed away and in the night I lighted a white candle for her. I stare at the flame a lot. I was lost in that flame and it gave me peace. It was a beautiful moment.
    Sorry if my english is not right.
    Greetings from Argentina.

  15. My eyes are light green with silver ring around the out side and gold starbursts around my pupil. Everyone always asks me if they are contacts.

  16. Hi! I know that I’m late on this, but I have amber colored eyes. Is there anything that comes to mind if you have amber eyes? Or should I just follow for the light brown eyes?

  17. How come you don’t have light green or yellow-green eyes on your descriptions? I also have black micro dots that my grandfather had in the same color as well as my aunties. My friend had the typical “Wiccan” light sea green eyes which were slightly different. Any thoughts on these weird colors? also, what about indigo/violet?

  18. Thank you for a very interesting article ? ? ? How about eyes, which are mixed with blue and green (?) Like mine. It is like changing color, and very difficult to define them either blue or green.

  19. What about hazel eyes!? My hazel is 3 different colors, green & gold with a very thin brown ring around the outside of my iris…

  20. So I have dark desaturated brown eyes in the outer ring, but the inner ring is warmer and brighter, not necessarily light but brighter. Like burnt honey on the inside and dry tree bark on the outside.

  21. I’m experiencing a synchronistic fascination to research Lady Somerset Bellenof ‘Lillibet’, Countess of Banbury and Arras, 3rd cousin to Queen Elizabeth, as well as the Wettin World Governing council. Her ‘Upper Chamber’ entourage is staffed with many stunningly beautiful women, many of whom curiously seem to exhibit true heterochromia. Considering what I have learned from this site and others in relation to the occult connotations with this congenital eye condition ,I cannot regard this correlation as mere co-incidence. Law of Attraction is truly magnificent

  22. I was born with black hair and black eyes. when I was a month old they changed from black to brown to blue to green and went grey then hazel all in one setting. They constantly change. So wtf is this called
