Colorstrology Is Real, and It Will Change the Way You Decorate
When it comes to astrology, let's admit it: who doesn't love reading their monthly horoscope? Gaining insight into your future relating to your career, relationships, health, and beyond is not only intriguing and exciting, but oftentimes, it can be extremely accurate. So, when we heard about a mashup that existed between astrology, design, and color theory, we had to know more.
This hybrid idealism, coined "colorstrology" by astrologist and numerologist Michele Bernhardt, is thoroughly mapped out in her book Colorstrology: What Your Birthday Color Says About You. Michele has created a comprehensive chart of Pantone colors that are assigned to every single day of the year as well as one color for each month. Using ruling planets, sun signs, and the influence of numbers and other important dates, Michele has determined which color creates the highest benefit for each.
So locate your birthday month ahead, and read on as we break down your most beneficial color as well as exciting ways you can incorporate it into your home space for an extra boost of positive energy.
Hues of caramel can connect you back to the earth and keep you centered and focused. If you are a January baby, try investing in some terra cotta planters and arrange them on your patio or near your windowsill for the ultimate energy boost. Plus, the dark brown color of the plant soil will also add to the effect.
February: Sheer Lilac
Sheer lilac can improve friendships and cast a vibe of kindness across you and any of your home visitors. Using lilac-colored mugs and tableware can be the perfect way to receive the benefits of this color while you enjoy tea or a meal among pals.
March: Fair Aqua
Fair aqua can increase relaxation and encourage meditation, so it is just the right color to include in your bedroom design scheme. Choose a bedding set with bursts of aqua, or try to find a solid aqua blanket that can come in handy both at bedtime or for any lazy Sunday naps out on the couch.
Cayenne is a bright and intense color, so be sure to implement it in a space that definitely requires a burst of vitality. If you have a home gym, try painting one wall this bold color, or add a vibrant table runner to your kitchen nook for an extra pick-me-up in the mornings while you eat breakfast.
May: Bud Green
The color bud green is closely linked to prosperity and success, so if this is your birth color, be sure to incorporate it into your home office or desk space. Try including a green upholstered side chair to maximize this color's benefits or, if you're cramped with space, a sleek green laptop cover or mouse pad will do just fine.
June: Aspen Gold
Aspen gold can promote successful communication, so think about which room in your home receives the most conversational activity. Painting the walls of your dining room a nice golden color could be a good touch, or hanging art with bold yellow features is another way to get the most of June's assigned color.
July: Coral Blush
July's coral blush color is extremely calming and promotes love and sensitivity, so adding this color into areas of your home that you closely share with a partner is key. An area rug in a gorgeous blush hue placed in either your living room or bedroom is a genius way to infuse this color into your space.
August: Sun Orange
A happy, bright sun orange is the best way to promote playfulness and fun, so recreational areas in your home are the best place to feature this color. Placing a bold orange umbrella out on your patio will not only liven up your space, but it will definitely encourage lots and lots of outdoor Summer fun.
September: Baja Blue
The distinct baja blue is synonymous with both beauty and attractiveness and is an amazing color to feature right in your entryway. Grab a welcome mat in this hue, or hang a framed print duo near the door to gracefully (and charmingly) welcome your guests.
Cerulean is another color heavily linked to relaxation and tranquility, so it is an ideal choice for your master bathroom. Whether you decide to paint the walls in this shade or find a towel set in a similar hue, you are sure to enjoy the calming benefits.
November: Claret Red
This deep claret red is strongly linked to the libido and nurtures physical connection, so incorporating it into your bedroom space can do wonders for you and your partner. And since this color is quite bold, focus on finding some smaller claret red accents, like a ring tray or small sculpture, to place on top of your nightstand or nearby dresser.
December: Pagoda Blue
Pagodea blue symbolizes vision, wisdom, and travels, so it is the perfect color to feature in a bookcase display or wall collage to promote interest and vision. Try locating blue bookends or decorative coffee table books with bold blue accents or even a hanging picture frame with blue rims for an extra dose of imagination in these spaces.
