Birthday colors

A couple of years ago, I stumbled upon a website called Colostrology. Which no longer exists, but it was transformed into a book. Colostrology or your birthday color combines astrology with intuitive wisdom and the power of the color to create a personal color for each day of the month of the year.

“There is a world of possibility contained in each day of birth. There are strengths and weaknesses and gifts and challenges. You have a sun sign and a ruling planet, and you belong to a particular element – fire, earth, air or water. Your birthday carries a numerological vibration that has a specific meaning. Each of these components shapes your personality and life experiences, and when combined, they create the personal colors on which Colostrology is based.” There are 365 personal colors. When the original website was still up, you only needed to search for your date of birth and see the color picked up for you. It may not be a color that you like, but it was designed to help you add it to your environment to help bring out the essence and meaning of you more into the world.

There are also monthly colors. The following are words taken from the book. This will determine you purchase it as you need to know exactly what does it say on your exact date of birth.

I have put it together with the names of colors, shade names from my previous article about the correct names of colors, in an attempt to see if they can be called differently. Some of them have slight differences, the shade is either too dark or too light, some, like caramel, I cannot find what to compare it with. Enjoy!
