You both have qualities which the other needs to learn and develop to feel truly fulfilled.
Take care whom you help
If you are exhausted because you have taken on too much, you will block luck from your life. Anger and negative thoughts may take over or you may be too tired to seize opportunities.
Despite the reputation of their birthday, people born on April 1 are far from being April Fools. They often display wisdom and a quiet confidence way in advance of their years. They were the children on whom parents and teachers knew they could rely and in their adult life they continue to be dependable, the ones who show up punctually, always giving one hundred per cent.
Although they have a reputation for being reliable and responsible, these people are rarely plodding or dull as they have a youthful and wholesome appeal that draws others to them. Incapable of hiding their emotions, their emotional spontaneity earns them many admirers; their natural shyness and reserve may, however, make it hard for them to respond and appreciate this attention. They also have a great need for privacy and personal space, loving to sit thinking for long hours and coming up with highly original plans and projects.
The aura of quiet confidence and honesty with which these people are blessed is capable of inspiring enormous faith and trust in others. They make excellent leaders but their motive is never a desire for self-aggrandizement as it is the work itself rather than being the center of attention that inspires them. All they really want is to be allowed to get on with their work, as a job well done gives them enormous satisfaction. Although their outstanding ability to focus on their work assures their success in virtually any field, they do need to be careful that in the process they don’t become isolated workaholics, especially between the ages of nineteen and forty-nine, during which they seek stability, security and routine. After the age of fifty, however, they move toward new interests, learning and communication.
The one similarity between the archetypal jester and these mature souls may be the sense of affection they inspire in others. Their responsible and quietly confident approach to life and lack of desire to promote themselves—unless thought necessary for the task in hand—is a true joy to behold.
On the dark side
Shy, workaholic, isolated
At your best
Focused, responsible, genuine
Love An open heart
People born on April 1 have an extremely warm and open heart that is incapable of deception but they do need to be careful that they don’t put their relationships at risk because of their obsession with work. They tend to be attracted to intelligent people who can give them the mental stimulation they need; but they thrive best with someone who can give them affection and warmth.
Health Keep active
Regular exercise is extremely important for people born on this day as they have a tendency to choose professions that keep them mentally active but physically sedentary. They should try to schedule in at least half an hour of activity a day; walking, jogging, swimming, and cycling are all activities that would suit, as they can also use this time to be alone and to gather their thoughts. As far as diet is concerned they need to remember to eat regularly and healthily as well and not to get so carried away with their current project that they eat on the go or forget to eat at all. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color red will encourage them to open up and respond more freely to others.
Career Born teachers
These people command respect with their quiet confidence, insight and brilliant organizational skills; for this reason they would excel in politics, education, management, administration, merchandising, or the military. They have a sharp business sense but they may use their great imagination to excel in art, music or drama. So varied are their talents, however, that they usually excel in any career they choose.
Destiny To find practical solutions to problems
The life path of people born on this day is to learn to trust and to speak their mind. Once they have learned to open up, their destiny is to find practical solutions to problems and to see others benefit from these solutions.
