The big news this week is that Crayola wasn’t getting in early with April fools and they have officially retired one of the 24-box crayon colours. Dandelion yellow packed its bags for good and our inner 5-year-olds felt the loss pretty hard. What better time to turn to the stars for a much-needed dose of colour. Bet you didn’t know every sign had its own colour too.
Seriously Pisces, leave some colours for the rest of us. With mauve, lilac, purple, violet and sea green to your name it feels a bit selfish. Taking more than your fair share is not a usual Pisces trait so we’ll forgive the indiscretion.
