In order to balance the energy flow during this year, colour choices should represent the elements of Fire and Metal as they are complementary to Earth. In layman terms, it means that the general lucky colours for 2019 should represent either a burning flame or shiny minerals. Think of hues like red, orange and pink for fire, as well as white, gold and silver for metal.
