KIMBERLY PETA DEWHIRST
Founder of Star Sign Style
Hi I’m Kimberly, the driving force behind Star Sign Style.
From a young age I soaked up every drop of information I could gather on astrology, noting how people looked and behaved like their zodiac sign. I’ve always believed astrology makes perfect sense, and as an adult I’ve been lucky enough to take it further.
I wanted to demonstrate what I knew to be true about the stars in a beautiful, accessible way, so I built this website. My aim is to bring the archetypes of the zodiac to life as far as possible, to instil a sense of confidence in the individual, by aligning with the stars…
I remember when I was young, I was told my zodiac sign, Aries, was loud, selfish and bossy.
I felt ashamed that I was indeed very loud, self-interested and a smidge bossy. But then someone dressed up those traits as ‘brave’, ‘independent’ and ‘a fearless leader’, and all of a sudden I felt better – I was empowered to be myself because I re-framed my traits in a positive light.
I want people to see the good in themselves, too.
When I realised that Mariah Carey and Lady Gaga were Aries, like me, I enjoyed identifying with them – strong, independent women. I shared their Aries traits, and I had faith that if I could harness my feisty streak in just the right way I could achieve success – just like them!
It’s not only self-improvement, I find similarities all the time between my loved ones and celebrities, which is beautiful – it’s glorious to hold up our modern day heroes in their many guises and to flatter a friend, “Gosh, you do look just like Kate Moss”.
My idea? If celebrities get star treatment and wardrobes fit to burst why shouldn’t we emulate their best looks on our debut days?
Why not buy key pieces instead of buying into trends that just don’t suit us – inside and out.
I want people to love and value themselves, and others, appreciating their innate talents and beauty – I hope that Star Sign Style inspires, delights and leads the way.
Our natal chart or birth chart is a wonderful guide to the potential we can fulfil in this lifetime, a map of the unique blend of energy we can offer the world – lets make it great!
Each of us is born with bags of personality at our disposal, through astrology we can discover what our true character tendancies might be and how best we can use them.
Oftentimes our innate sense of self can be difficult to express – it can get lost as we try to mould ourselves, people pleasing on our journey.
Reclaim your uniqueness and get back to your true self.

That’s my gift to you!
A life-long enthusiast of astrology I embarked upon professional studies in 2012 at the London School of Astrology (LSA), and am continually broadening my knowledge, currently working towards credits at The Faculty of Astrological Studies.
I enjoy making this incredibly complex subject lighter, accessible and fun, however I strive to maintain credibility and authenticity.
As such, I only write what I genuinely believe to be true, and factual from an astrological perspective (though my writing can often be tongue in cheek!)
Marketing, Publishing & Writing
I’m passionate about the written word and how messages reach the masses, and studied English and Marketing at Leeds in the UK.
My fetish for glossy magazines led me to work in print publishing, however I was witness to an exciting wave of new digital technology, as smartphones and social media became integrated as everyday essentials, both in communicating with one another and accessing information.
Websites and blogs were on an upward trajectory and everyone was able to self-publish!
Recognising that there was a space for astrology and fashion to collide I wanted to combine my personal interests and create something that would excite and entertain me, and those likeminded. Picking up website building skills along the way I designed, developed and populated starsignstyle.com.
