Elvis was born on the 8th January 1935 and by time of his death in 1977 he was the king of rock and roll.

Elvis belongs to the orange colour group which includes the memories and reactions of the traditional role of the warrior. Traditional roles fulfill specific tasks needed by society in order to flourish. Protection of land, food supplies and assets was vital, and the warrior fulfilled this vital role. People who belong to the orange colour group have the memories and instincts of the warrior.

Like many who are in this group Elvis Presley experienced loss and subsequent grief early in his life when his twin brother was stillborn. Elvis as the only surviving child was exceptionally close to his mother.

The survival instinct of orange is designed to defend and protect, to act as a shield and provide support. Loyalty is the warrior’s most prized possession and Elvis showed all these traits, in his relationship with his mother. Years later when she died, Elvis became so depressed he grieved for days on end.

While Elvis was always polite and well behaved, the other boys around him were not and this made him the target of bullying. Struggle, resistance and fighting are a life theme for the warrior and many in the orange colour group experience these circumstances.

Elvis Presley displayed his commitment to music early in his life. He received a guitar for his eleventh birthday after which he was inseparable from it. He was obsessed with music in all of its styles and spent all of his spare time singing and listening to it.

In order for the warrior to be successful nature has given a number of traits. For the orange warrior one of these traits is dedication. The warrior must train continually if they to be ready. In modern times this characteristic often displays itself as dedication and perseverance.

Over time Elvis Presley developed his own style, both in music and in movement. Many watching a young Elvis for the first time remember being over-powered by his energy and vigor. Sam Phillips said Presley "put every ounce of emotion ... into every song, almost as if he was incapable of holding back."

Not only was Elvis incapable of holding back his emotions, he created an emotional outpouring from the audience that amounted to hysteria. Elvis’ mother toward the end of her life felt scared for her son’s wellbeing, because she was frightened by the hysteria of the crowd.

Creating hysteria is something orange people do best. Hysteria suits the personality of some orange people because hysteria is an emotional tidal wave. In the past the warrior used emotions to their advantage, employing them to upset their opponents. Today orange still uses this tactic instinctively under stress, giving them a natural advantage in emotional situations.

Other common life themes for orange include loyalty, deceit, romantic love, chivalry and honour. All qualities found in the warrior and knight.

Loyalty and deceit played a role in Elvis’ life, seen in the absolute trust he placed in his management. After his death it became clear that both his management and his doctors were using Elvis as a meal ticket rather than a friend.

Elvis was linked to numerous sexual conquests, yet many of the women that Elvis was meant to have ‘conquered’ tell a different story. Most describe a shy, polite man who treated them with the utmost courtesy. Priscilla Presley claims in her autobiography that Elvis refused to sleep with her until they were married.

Toward the end of his life, Elvis due to medical mismanagement, disappointment and self abuse, began like all people to become dominated by his survival instinct. The instinct of orange is the instinct of the warrior and at a meeting with President Nixon in 1970, Elvis arrived with a handgun as a gift. Supposedly Elvis asked President Nixon to appoint him as a "Federal Agent at Large". He stated his wish to be given a Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs badge, and offered to "infiltrate hippie groups" claiming The Beatles had gone back to England and created anti-American feelings. Elvis' behaviour is typical of the warrior when their orange survival instinct becomes dominant.  His instinctive reaction was to protect what he loved from invading foreign threats.

On his death millions of people mourned and for some it was total loss. An intense form of grief is often a life theme for orange. Above all things orange people value loyalty and this is exactly what his fans gave him.
