You’re drawn to people born on…
August 24 to September 24
This is a classic case of opposites attract. You both have so much to learn and give to each other.
Learn to meditate
Meditation is a powerful way to attract more luck and happiness into your life. This is because it teaches you to focus your thoughts on the here and now so your intuition can get your attention.
Whatever situation they are in or whatever person or group of people they are with, people born on July 5 have a flair for injecting sparkle, energy and excitement into the atmosphere. Everything about them is vivid and colorful, and their charming manners and interesting conversation light up the workplace and social gatherings.
Thriving on constant variety and stimulation, their life never seems to stand still, and even if they are in a routine of some kind because of work or family commitments they will make sure that they have a hobby or interest to absorb them. They can, however, alienate others with their boundless energy and enthusiasm. Although they tend to have many admirers, some people may have trouble keeping up with their explosive pace; their wild shifts in mood may also frustrate those who admire them but doubt their reliability.
Before the age of eighteen, they may often have problems or difficulties with school or study. This is because their restless nature makes it hard for them to concentrate for long periods or conform to a schedule. Their vivid imagination may also make them feel different in some way, but they should cherish rather than repress it as later in life it may offer them an endless source of inspiration. After the age of eighteen their confidence increases; these are the years they are most likely to be adventurous and creative. It is important during this period that they learn to maintain a sense of stability, not frittering their energy and away in too many directions. After the age of forty-seven they may become more discriminating and efficient.
The key to their success is education and learning, as these will help develop the discipline and awareness they need to reach their true potential. Their desire to keep busy will always be a key characteristic, but when it is combined with a more centered existence their explosive ideas will finally come down from the drawing board and transform into accomplishments or achievements that are progressive and lasting in their impact.
On the dark side
Wild, erratic, unreliable
At your best
Exciting, entertaining, imaginative
Love Someone very special
People born on July 5 may often resist attempts to make them settle down, and it will take someone special to hold their attention for long and add much-needed stability to their life. They prefer to be associated with people who are charismatic, exciting and influential like themselves, but they would benefit more from associating with those who have a calmer, gentler and more centered approach.
People born on this day love to experiment in all aspects of their life, emotionally intellectually and physically. Their diet is likely to be varied and interesting and, as long as they make sure they don’t go for long periods without food, when they are absorbed in their work they are likely to be eating healthily; as their life is often hectic and they are prone to coughs and colds, however, they might benefit from a multi-vitamin and mineral pill every day. Regular exercise is recommended, especially activities and sports that involve other people in a competitive or social way. Mind-training therapies that encourage them to slow down, calm down and focus their minds such as meditation, hypnotherapy and cognitive therapy are highly recommended. An ideal way for them to unwind after a hectic day would be in a warm bath with one drop of juniper essential oil. Wearing the color blue will also help them feel calmer and more centered.
Career Born inventors
These people have creative flair that may express itself in careers in design, invention, technology, art, music, film-making, and dance. Multi-talented, they may also excel in a variety of occupations including sales, promotion, banking, counseling, and the world of entertainment. A dislike for taking orders often leads them into positions of authority and a love of variety may provoke them to work on their own.
Destiny To realize their visionary sense of purpose
The life path of people born on this day is to learn to maintain stability in their relationships and their lives. Once they are more grounded, their destiny is to innovate and reform and, by so doing, realize their vision.
