Colorstrology Book Cover

I was reminded of Colorstrology when a piece by Michele Bernhardt was included in the fabulous House Beautiful September Color Issue but it has been awhile since I looked at what Colorstrology says about each person based on their birth date. When it came up again this morning I decided to take another look.

I pulled up my birth date February 19th first. Although I’ve never really been attracted to the color ‘Blush’ the write up about my personality traits was a good fit. Here’s a couple of highlights:

Colorstrology for Kate

YOU love to learn and explore new things especially if there is an artistic or organic slant to the subject. [Yep, that’s true]

Although you get along well with others you have a strong independent streak. You want a partner with whom you can share your life, but one who doesn’t require all of your energy. [True again & I don’t think I could have said it any better]

Colorstrology for Julie

Now I know my sister Julie pretty well so I decided to see if the traits for March 24th fit her personality.

There is something about your physical presence that is commanding yet likable. [Commanding wouldn’t be a word I would have used but Julie does have a presence and is easily likable so I’d say this rings true.]

You have an artistic ability and a great sense of style. [No question here. Julie is very artistic, creative and has an innate sense of style.]

Colorstrology for Kiki

So far so good but but I wanted to look up at least one more so I looked at my friend Kiki’s birth date January 21st.

Many people born on this day have a propensity for writing. Your mind is very active so it is important for you to communicate both creatively and physically. Sports, dance or the arts are all activities that can bring joy and help you relax

Colorstrology January 21st

True, I’d say this is very true.  Kiki is a good writer, is very creative and she danced with the Minnesota Ballet/Stage Door Performing Arts for 15 years.

Okay, three for three. I’m not sure if it is just a lucky coincidence or that there really is something more to Colorstrology but it sure was fun.

Why not find your Colorstrology color and then leave a comment and let me know if what your birthdate say about you is on target.

    hi. i was born on 1995/9/15

  • I’m an Heirloom Lilac (October 23) and it is amazing how accurate it is. I am eloquent, funny and “far deeper than you may appear”!

    Also amazing is Michele Bernhardt herself. I interviewed her last month for my COLOR HEALING RADIO show. For a real treat, listen to the free podcast at and scroll down the page until you see “Magical, Mystery Hues”.

  • Juli Roland says:

    I thought my description fit me pretty well. The color suggestion, however, (Etruscan Red, a muted brownish red) was not me at all.

    I’ve worn vibrant blue-reds at certain times, but never decorate with red or seek it out in other objects.

    Then again, I couldn’t pick a single favorite color anyway. I think that’s why I became a color consultant, so I am constantly getting to see and utilize different colors. : )

    • Kate Smith says:

      It is likely you are right, Juli. As a color consultant you can have a different favorite color everyday depending on what you are working on 🙂

  • Kate Smith says:

    This post took on a life of its own on Twitter yesterday and here are a few of the comments that were tweeted to me about it–

    @SavoirFlairDes: This is pretty awesome!

    @Imageglow: I’m Baked Apple!

    @artsyleah Far more accurate than we could have expected.

    @ChickieLou: Mine came up terra cotta. Assessment was spot on.

    Thanks to the many, many people that retweeted this post

  • Pam Kersting says:

    So you two are color maven SISTERS! That is awesome that you both are in the same field! I have a twin sister who does not blog, but she loves all things gardening, just as I do. What fun!

    • Julie Hoylen says:

      Hi Pam,

      What’s your Colorstrology color? Do you and your sister have similar color preferences as well? I’m totally intrigued!

      By the way- I just LOVE your blog!

      • Pam Kersting says:


        My colorstrology is “Jester Red”. That is very interesting — I just looked up everyone else in my family and we all have a red or red derivative color! This could become a science project! My twin and I don’t always lean toward the same colors. Although we should as we have identical coloring. I’ll have to be more observant. Love your blog too!!

        • Julie Hoylen says:

          That’s so funny. My family’s colors read like a paint swatch strip as well- all purples.

  • I’m quite pleased with my analysis. How coincidental that my color Zephyr is also a name my mother suggested if I was ever in fact going to have children. And I actually like it, maybe it’s a sign!

    • Kate Smith says:

      I never heard the name Zephyr. Maybe it is a sign!

    • Juno Sinclair says:

      My older brothers name is Zephyr, he was named after our grandfather, who was named after the Greek God of the West wind. It’s a good name with many nicknames to it

  • Julie Hoylen says:

    I take offense…I rather like being described as commanding.

    • Kate Smith says:

      I thought commanding sounded a bit negative but I can go with it. Maybe instead of color mavens we could be color commanders.
