Your greatest challenge is…
understanding the feeling that you are different
The way forward is…
to understand that everyone is unique and gifted in their own way; you just happen to be a little more unique than others.
You’re drawn to people born on…
January 21 to February 19
You share a love of adventure and boundary-breaking, and this exciting relationship is inspiring and exciting.
Be true to yourself
Lucky people never try to be something they are not. They understand that the only way to find true fulfillment and the respect of others is to open up and allow others to know you properly.
People born on February 4 often try to fit in but, however hard they try, they will always stand out. They have the ability to bedazzle others with their original thoughts and flashes of brilliance. Their methods may not always be orthodox but their thought-processes are always original and their problem-solving techniques always effective.
Although people born on this day are often admired for their sincerity, discipline and ability to work extremely hard, the logic behind their thoughts and actions is often incomprehensible not just to others but sometimes to themselves. Their speed of thought and energy may also exhaust those around them and they may find that people respond to them with bewilderment rather than bedazzlement. Feeling that they are a square peg in a round hole can make them feel insecure and confused; they may try to ward off feelings of difference and aloneness by attempting to fit in. This is a mistake because they shouldn’t try to win the admiration of others by limiting their greatest strength: their originality.
People born on this day do often feel as if they are different from other people but they are at their happiest and most bedazzling when they are able to be themselves. Because there is often so much going on in their heads they may pay little attention to their emotions; analyzing their feelings is not easy for them. As a result they can be incredibly harsh on themselves, expecting more from themselves than anyone else. They can also be impatient and impulsive without thinking through the impact of their actions on themselves and others. Fortunately, between the ages of sixteen and forty-five there are opportunities to become more emotionally self-aware; after the age of forty-five a significant turning point comes when they become bolder, more self-accepting and assertive.
If people born on this day can understand that others will respect and admire them far more if they are themselves, they have the potential to bring about real innovations in both their personal and their professional lives.
On the dark side
Uncommunicative, confused, unstable
At your best
Imaginative, unconventional, sincere
People born on February 4 may be difficult to understand, but when it comes to affairs of the heart they are original, adventurous and exciting. They love to explore all aspects of a relationship and their partner will experience great intimacy with them. They are attracted to courageous and strong-willed people. Timid and unadventurous people do not usually attract them, unless there are smoldering passions lurking beneath.
Health New doesn’t always mean better
People born on this day are attracted to innovation. Most alternative medicine and holistic health practices will probably appeal to them. But they need to distinguish between what is credible and what is quackery. Their love of innovation also applies to diet and exercise; they are typically the first to jump on the bandwagon, only to drop off a few weeks later for something new. Although they have incredible energy, they are prone to neglecting eating and sleeping when they are on one of their mental adventures. It is important for people born on this day to remember that sometimes traditional health advice—for example, eat little and often, and try to get enough sleep—is sensible advice. Meditating, wearing or surrounding themselves with the colors rose or green will help create balance and harmony.
Career Born innovators
The originality of these people will enable them to be successful in a wide variety of careers. They may be drawn toward cutting-edge science and technology, or toward the stage or politics. They may also specialize as a therapist, psychologist, counselor, or natural-health practitioner; their humanitarian focus could draw them toward charity work or social reform. They also make fantastic artists, photographers, designers, architects, sculptors, or painters, as these are excellent outlets for their unusual take on life.
Destiny To amaze others with their original approach to life
The life path of people born on this day is to celebrate rather than try to curb their originality. Once they are able to do that, their destiny is to amaze those around them with their honest, direct, if occasionally incomprehensible, but always brilliant and original approach to life.
