Yours is the color of royalty, Sagittarius!

Yours is the color of royalty, Sagittarius!

The Sagittarian hue signifies majesty. Made from secretions of sea snails, murex purple was a pigment only royalty could afford - 10,000 of the beasts had to die in order to dye one toga in ancient Rome!

If your name wasn't Caesar, you'd be killed for wearing the color. It was so costly that one emperor denied his wife a purple gown because he couldn't afford it!

Thankfully, you don't need to pay a king's ransom to wear this sumptuous shade today. And purple can be sophisticated and elegant in the home, too. Combine soft lavender, dove gray, caramel, and cream.
