Black – The Root of Being
Black Symbolizes: Grounding, Protection, Power, Elegance
Verb: I am


Black Energy:
Black is cloaked in mystery. We hunger to know its secrets, yet we fear what may be revealed. As human beings, we yearn to unravel life’s secrets even as we fear the unknown. This desire/ fear response is the essential enigma of darkness. We are simultaneously drawn to and afraid of the mysteries within black.
Black is a powerful, bold and dramatic presence: heavy, dominating, and pervasive.
Symbolizes confidence, self-control and resilience. Black denotes strength and authority.
It is considered to be a very formal, elegant, and prestigious color (black tie, black Mercedes). A black suit or that "must have little black dress" can make you look thinner and sophisticated.
Meaning of black is authoritative and powerful; because black can evoke strong emotions too much can be overwhelming.
It is also mysterious, providing a sense of potential and possibility. Black is a color often shrouded in confusion. Many individuals shy away from Black or using Black, especially when using Color Therapy. Black is actually a protective color. It can be used to calm and ground extremely sensitive people. It activates the feminine or magnetic energies of the body, strengthening them.
Black is not a color, strictly speaking. It is the absence of all color. When people speak of opposites, it is usually in terms of black and white. Black, and its opposite white represent polarities. Black absorbs all aspects of light. While white reveals, black conceals.
Black contrasts well with bright colors. Combined with red or orange – other very powerful colors – black gives a very aggressive color scheme.




Keywords for Meaning of Black:

elegance, formal, dramatic, sophistication, bold, confidence, strength, power, protection, mysterious, authority, classy, committed, serious, depth, wealth, absence of color, grounding, style, classic, polished, secrecy, seriousness, underground, hiding, aggressive, survival, self-control.

I chose mine as I like RED, but also i have to see a car in the colour to decide if it works some cars just look wrong in some colours
black will never happen as wife hates black and white for that matter, silver is too common and i dont think the juke looks its best in silver, gun is ok but doesn't light my fire enough, the other colours are too obscure for me so it had to be the RED</font>. which insidentally is the best looking colour to get a Juke in,

Hear, hear, Deks36.
Although, I must say, after living in beautiful Spain for seven years, I guess a sand colour would have been more appropriate, because we are semi-desert, with the attendant dust that covers a car only 20 minutes after washing it!

However, they do not make the Juke in that colour, so, it has to be my mostfavourite colour, which as you say, fits the shape and style perfectly, IMHO.

RED RULES!!!

We really thought the black looked sharp and were going to chose it. But then when we came back for a second test drive the car had gotten a bit wet and had spots all over it that you could see from pretty far away. Looked terrible. Anyway, we ended up with the gray metallic with the black and silver interior. Couldn't be happier. The Juke has a lot of dust and some water spots on it now and you can't even tell if it wasn't for the windows being spotted. Plus I think the gray (and the silver) really bring out the curves in the Juke's sheet metal.

I chose red because it matches the interior (and my favourite scarf
). I just wanted inside and outside to match and these did. What I really wanted was purple interior and exterior. Not to everyones taste i'm surebut I would have loved it

OH YES!!!


Now I def would have gone for that lol. Seriously though, the shape of the JUKE and the (i think) funky interior, I was suprised that the colour options are so "conservative".


My friends got a squeeze green new fiesta and it really goes with the styling on the car. The JUKE is a big car and it probably would have been too much but come on - stands out in a crowd. lol

I couldn't decide between the red, white or black - but the Juke I took for a test drive was black and I thought it looked a bit insignificant somehow, so that and probably the fact that I wanted a change - my last two cars were black, eventually helped me make my decision.



I thought seriouslyabout the white because it's pretty fashionable again, but everyone kept telling me it would be a nightmare to keep clean. So that only left one contender- RED, and normally I hate red cars- but the Juke red is gorgeous, and I have absolutely no regrets!

Red because my OH thought it would look good in red. Black is insignificant. White I like and would just as easily have chosen as red. Blue and brown? No. No. No. The gunmetal is good but it didn't occur to me as silver cars are so boring. The gunmetal isn't dull though.
Happy with red. But white or gunmetal are good too.
