Personally I'd just put a new switch wire from the light down to the switch on the wall. But if you use a junction box here's how. In the junction box connect the earths [green] together. You have 2 connections left. From the red black cable red goes in one connection, black in the other. From the red yellow blue cable put the red with the red and the blue in with the black. Then put the yellow in with the two reds.
