Hyperlink Text Color in SharePoint 2010

Is there a way to change the default hyperlink color in a Content Editor web part?

I'm not looking for anything special, just the blue color hyperlinks usually are before being used.

Currently my hyperlinks are defaulting to mauve or reddish purple, that color the links become after use.

you can simply create inline styles and assign this class inside your links using the "Edit HTML Source" action inside the ribbon "Editing Tools" -> "Format Text" -> "Markup" -> "HTML".

Then you might use something like this:
a.testme:link {color: #00FF00;}
a.testme:hover { background: #0000FF;}
a.testme:visited { color: #FF00FF;}

You can also change site themes. That can be fun!
An easy way to change font colours is by using SharePoint Desinger.
If you have a look around you may be able to set the default as well.
