    To change the color of the asterisks for the required field, you need to click on the Preferences icon in the Set Up & Embed tab.

    Look at the Form Styles tab, you'll see the last option is Inject Custom CSS. You can specify custom css for the fields here.

    The code you need to input here change the asterisk color will be to:

    .form-required {

    That will change all the asterisks blue.
    I hope that helps,
