Colors  meaning
Interpretation of cards is done in accordance with all the elements presented in the cards! Name (lat "Nomen est omen"-name is a sign!), color, scene and in lenormand case numbers and playing card insertions as well all together convey a message - meaning of the card!
Colors have a huge impact on our lives even though we’re often not aware of that, they influence our psyche, mood and evoke certain psychological and physical reactions, in accordance with that traditionally colors in a different nations and cultures have a particular meaning-symbolic message that certain color is transfering.
Best example of using color to transfer messages and meanings can be found in Heraldry and Cards. It can be noticed that *clean and clear* a.k.a basic - primary colors; red yellow and blue, have meaning and symbolism that is most important because all other colors can be derived by mixing those mentioned above, same is true for their meaning. Color symbolism depends primarily on the form in which specific color appears in nature as that accordingly formed its basic meaning. Thus, for example, colors that remind us of fire; red, yellow, orange give a feeling of warmth and comfort and encourage the activity and because of that are so called hot and active colors, and colors that remind us on water; blue and green act cool and soothing, and therefore are so-called cold and passive. In addition another important element is a purity-the presence of other colors, especially the color-tonality- presence of white or black color. White color is considered to contain all the colors of sunlight-spectrum and usually have a positive meaning, and black vice versa.                           
Accordingly, each color can have a positive or negative connotation, it depends on;
-the amount to which a particular color is used
-elements emphasized with that color,
-presence of other colors
so for example usually it is considered that the meaning of color is favorable if a particular color is used moderately and with other colors-which contribute to balance, and that the lighter shades - presence of white color is more favorable than darker shades-presence of black color, and excessive use of certain color is negative. The most important is complete impression of all the elements and what we want to emphasize with specific color.

And there is one more thing what if beside water and air there is some invisible energy that give us life and sustain all life on this earth? That would make trinity often spoken in different religions? Transparent each less condense and tangible then other but necessary for life?
