    You can inject a custom CSS and add this code

    .form-required {

    color:#00000 !important;


    you can replace #00000 with the color code you want. You can check the link below to get the color code you need.

    Yes, the declaration to effect that change can be placed in the same rule my colleague provided, vis:

    .form-required {
    color: #000;
    font-size: 20px;
    margin-left: 3px;

    Of course, you may change the 20 to whatever value you wish. The fourth declaration (margin-left: 3px) is necessary to compensate for the increased distance between asterisk and its asociated text.

    Do let us know if you would like further assistance with anything. We'd be happy to help.
