What happens when you mix one part color and one part astrology? You get Pantone Birthday Colors.

My color is "Heather." ...Somehow I don't feel a spiritual revelation about that.

I would LOVE to see just one astrology device where a particular match signifies something bad.

"Reno Dakota there’s not an iota
of kindness in you
You know you enthrall me
and yet you don’t call me
It’s making me blue
Pantone 292"

I'm Pantone 18-4530:

"Although you are independent and strong, there is a sensitive side of you that remains hidden. It is that side that needs to be acknowledged and understood because it holds many of your deepest wishes. Try not to hide your feelings especially from those who are trying so desperately to understand you."


*weeps openly*

None of you understand my pain. I'm going to write a lyrical ode to dismemberment and kill myself now.

Does this remind anyone else of WINC (Witches In Nature's Colors) from "A Mighty Wind"?

I like mine: BAYOU: 18-5121 (DEC. 1st) ...You were born to perform, communicate, and explore. It is important for you to travel and make yourself available to new people and unusual ideas...

Hmm... People who are born today (such as this guy) are "born artists and compassionate souls."

I'm not particularly seeing it...

jpoulos: Glad I'm not the only one who thought of that song while doing this. :)

I turned out to be 'Dill': Wearing, meditating or surrounding yourself with Dill infuses courage and calls in like-minded individuals with whom to share your experiences. Actually, if I really surrounded myself with dill, I'd be afraid that I'd be devoured by hungry cannibals.

I'm lotus. Which means i'm gentle and soothing, or something.

*hugs and soothes jonmc*

there you go buddy. no need to dismember.

Hm. So why is September the only month that's "under development"? Maybe they're having trouble picking a color for the 11th, knowing that no matter what color they pick or what they say about it, somebody's going to get angry at them, call for a boycott, post an internet petition, etc. I mean if they pick a green, someone will point out that that's an important color in Islam. If they pick a red, it'll be compared to blood or fire and they'll be accused of politicising, um, something. If they pick a blue -- I dunno, maybe I lack the imagination to know what rants that'll produce. And don't even think about yellow. They should just pick pale purple on the grounds that it's a blend of red, white and blue.

I'm "Shale Green" too (i.e. the color of the crap I spent an hour scrubbing out of my aquarium this morning) which apparently means that pieoverdone and I have a "significant inner life that not everyone sees or can share" while still remaining "attractive and engaging" with our "childlike enthusiasm"

Oddly enough, my INFJ profile says similar things (I'm curious pieoverdone: do you know your Myers-Briggs? :P), but I've always been especially distrustful of any and all systems that claim to be able to sort people into merely 16 categories, or tell me I should be just like everyone else who shares the same birthday/month/year with me. Whatever happened to free will and the nature vs nuture bit and all that jazz?

Man, the colors for May suck. It's spring! Let's be pukey green colors!

Blue Heaven here. Sounds like a stripper's name.

Hmm. July 21st's color is Amberglow. So I now have to wonder what Amberglow's birthday is...and if anyone's found their birthday color called, I dunno, Quonsar or something...

Heh, I'm "Grasshopper" (May 31). When I saw that I almost spit chocolate malt all over my keyboard.

It's kind of a gross green, and green is my favorite color.

I do, nelleish. ISTJ.

There was some line in U-Turn where Jennifer Lopez is telling Sean Penn his fortune, he's amazed, and she subsequently told him that she just reiterated 3 things that everyone has. A past, a secret, and something they want. I think that's how it went.

Hey, I'm May 2 Shale Green as well... INFP, though.

Wedgewood. July 25th. Or, as I prefer to call it "Mom put Metafilter in the washer on Hot 12 times too many".

Also May 2, shale green. Stop hogging my birthday!

(I guess my color description explains all the static eletricity problems I have at work.)

July 21's color is "amberglow" and is described as "magnificent," "different," and "daring." Ahem, any thoughts, amberglow?

High risk red here (19th April) - not entirely sure if that's a good thing or not. Nice colour though.

amberglow, I think my comment and ifjuly's comment are good proof that us late July babies just don't pay attention ^_^;

My color is Vista Blue, not far from MeFi Blue.

Rose Wine, 17-1623: Musical, expressive, imaginative

Funny, that's exactly what I bought from the liquor store with the money from my first paid gig.
