Venus rules variegated colors - bright and shining, and also rules royal blue -the color of luxurious festivities. Venus rules white (speckless), royal blue, and variegated colors. The colors should be deep and bright.

Saturn rules black, connected with gloominess, and its mixture with red gives brown, and its mixture with blue gives navy blue, or (blackish blue).
Note: In Systems' Approach, the color purple belongs to Rahu.
*Additionally, where the Sun is favorable, golden color can be used, while where the Moon is favorable, silver color can be used.  Where these planet are unfavorable, these colors should also be avoided.
Also, most of the athletes and fitness enthusiasts are activated by Rahu which represents the grey color. The grey color also has many shades. Somewhat good impact may come from deep and bright grey.
