Forgive others as yourself
Lucky people understand that there is something irritating about everyone, but they don’t let their own anger or impatience upset others and by so doing destroy their happiness and their luck.
People born on June 17 are often strong and inspirational individuals who believe everyone has it within them to follow their dreams. A fascinating combination of creativity and structure, they know how to conform but also have a vivid imagination that they want to explore and, if possible, profit from.
Demanding a lot of themselves and the people they live and work with, whatever situation they are in they are likely to be excellent performers and a forceful presence. Although they set a terrific example to others and people are drawn to their vitality and masterful demeanor, if they find themselves in the role of mentor they may struggle. This is because they are often too wrapped up in their own goals, lacking the patience and understanding to listen to others.
There is a danger that they might stretch the truth if they feel it serves their purposes. This isn’t motivated by a desire to deceive but simply so their arguments sound more plausible. But if they don’t control this tendency to manipulate the truth, they can become known as untrustworthy. Such is their influence, however, that even if their exaggeration is uncovered, others may still continue blindly to follow their lead. It is important therefore for them to impose a strict ethical code upon themselves. Until the age of thirty-four they may focus on emotional relations, security and family; for their own happiness they need to ensure that they take advantage of opportunities to discover their feelings and learn how to express them to others. After the age of thirty-five they enter a period of strength, power and confidence; these are the years when they come into their own as inspirational leaders or pioneers.
Above all, the forceful but imaginative and progressive individuals born on this day are fired by progressive ideals. Once they develop an understanding of the effect that their intensity has on others, not only will this give their ideals a better chance of gaining acceptance, it will also bring them greater emotional fulfillment.
On the dark side
Impatient, detached, untrustworthy
At your best
Influential, physical, creative
Although they are often surrounded by potential partners, establishing a close relationship may prove difficult for people born on June 17 as they tend to be physically undemonstrative and emotionally aloof. They are attracted to people who are successful or living their dreams and, once they do find that special someone, they can open up to they make faithful, protective and loving partners.
Health Will-power needed
People born on this day often have a strong physical presence and they need to make sure they don’t succumb to addiction of any kind, be it drink, recreational drugs, sex, or food. Although they have terrific will-power professionally, when it comes to their personal life they don’t show nearly the same resolve. It is important that they take charge of their well-being by eating healthily, exercising regularly and refraining from activities that give them a temporary high followed by a prolonged low. Once they do get their diet and lifestyle on track, they will find that their need for stimulants fades away. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color purple will encourage them to look inward and think of higher, purer things.
Career Born conductors
These people have a quick mind and the ability to lead; this offers them many career opportunities where they can rise to prominent positions. Alternatively, they may prefer to work for themselves. They are well suited to intellectual professions such as law, research or writing, and to careers where they can be involved in humanitarian or social reform, whether in society, religion or health care. A desire for creativity may lead them to express their individuality in the arts, the theater, and particularly music or conducting orchestras.
Destiny To inspire others to fight for their values
The life path of people born on this day is to learn to get in touch with their feelings so that they can express them outwardly. Once they are able to be less detached in their dealings with others, their destiny is to inspire others with their courageous ability to fight for their values.
