April 21 to May 21

Anchor your goals in reality
Lucky people affirm clear goals for themselves but they make sure these goals are within reason. So be realistically optimistic in your goal setting.
People born on June 8 are honest and direct in their approach to life. They speak their mind and, because they have such high expectations of themselves and others, despise laziness or injustice in any form.
Although highly independent and quite happy to work alone, people born on this day will often find themselves in the position of leader. This is because they have a strong sense of fair play and understand the importance of adhering to rules—as long as these rules are their own. They also make great leaders because they set an inspiring example in their wholehearted dedication to their life’s work, be that running a business, heading a team or raising a family. There is a danger, however, that their dedication and industriousness can tip over into workaholism.
Until the age of forty-three they focus on home and their emotional life. Their basic nature is to be personable and fun, so it is important during this time that they don’t let their spontaneity disappear. In their attempt to be just, they should also make sure they don’t become harsh or judgmental, placing impossible expectations of loyalty and dedication on themselves and others. After the age of forty-four they become more self-expressive and assertive, but they need to make sure that they do not become preachy toward others and overly zealous in their attitude to work. The key to their success and fulfillment both personally and professionally is to balance their emotional needs with their strong sense of responsibility. As they approach the age of seventy, they start to become more practical and analytical, and the emphasis turns toward serving others.
The integrity, industriousness and devotion that they are capable of enable them to blaze a pioneering trail through life and build a wide social circle. Once they can develop empathy and a greater tolerance for their own vulnerabilities and those of others the high expectation of fulfillment that they have always had will be realized in their own success and happiness.
On the dark side
Workaholic, stressed, judgmental
At your best
Independent, honest, dedicated
Love Fun to be around
People born on June 8 are great fun to be around, but their long absences and commitment to work may put their friendships and relationships at risk. They need to make sure that they set enough time aside for their relationships and cultivate a sense of play. They also need to find ways to express their feelings to others and not allow hidden insecurities to manifest in quarrelsome or judgmental behavior.
Health An active life
Exercise is vital for people born on this day, and if they don’t already have an exercise routine in place they are strongly advised to make one. This is because exercise will not only boost their immunity and self-esteem and keep their weight down; it will force them to take time out to concentrate on their well-being. There is a tendency for them to become workaholics and, if this isn’t checked, they could become victims of stress and depression. Exercise, a healthy diet rich in mood-boosting fruits, vegetables, oily fish, nuts, and seeds, together with time spent relaxing with loved ones, will help them feel more in balance. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color orange will increase feelings of warmth, physical enjoyment and security.
Career Born architects
These people are especially well equipped for science-related careers, such as research and computer programming, but design-related careers such as architecture, landscaping and planning are also favored. Other careers that might interest them include law, education, banking, or accountancy. This date also shows potential for success in show business, art and music.
Destiny To influence and guide others with their powers of perception
The life path of people born on this day is to learn to balance their sense of integrity and fair play with a more liberal approach to life. Once they are able to find this balance, their destiny is to influence and guide others with their incisive powers of perception.
