Your greatest challenge is…
learning there are no exact moral measurements
The way forward is…
to understand that people, yourself included, are not statistics or geometry. In human terms, perfection is about being imperfect.
You’re drawn to people born on…
August 24 to September 23
You share a passion for beauty and a need to nurture, and this can create a loyal and fulfilling union.
Be all you can be
Lucky people value what they know they can achieve, they don’t set up unattainable goals for themselves that lead to failure. The more realistic and attainable your goals, the more likely you are to achieve them.
Although those born on April 26 can be bold and visionary in their plans, one of their defining characteristics is a meticulous attention to detail. Making sure everything is cut to the right size and shape matters greatly to them. They instinctively understand that, for a project to be successful, logical planning and careful preparation is essential. They are pillars of logic and common sense.
Having considered and worked through all the possibilities and contin gencies without losing focus on their ultimate objective, it’s no surprise that they are often found presiding over smooth-running projects. They are often greatly admired for their dependability, efficiency and, as great self-starters, their independence. They are highly confident in their abilities; there is a risk, however, that they become rigid in their beliefs and dismiss any other way but their way. This controlling tendency can have a damaging effect on personal and professional relationships; they need to learn to respect diversity of opinion and the individuality of others.
Until the age of twenty-five, their stubbornness is likely to dominate; but after the age of twenty-six they may become more flexible in their thinking and in their approach to life by studying and communicating. After the age of fifty-six they feel the need to be close to those they love and care for.
Throughout their lives they need to make sure that their love of logic, order and detail does not estrange them from their heart. They need to understand that perfecting themselves is not the way to a fulfilling life. The sooner they can start getting in touch with their feelings and the feelings of others, the sooner they can enjoy a more balanced and healthy life. In their dedication to perfection they can become isolated from others. Learning to embrace and enjoy the inconsistencies of others will help them feel less lonely.
Once they understand that human beings aren’t perfect or logical there is no reason why their inspired and productive strategies can’t help them achieve and even exceed their goals.
On the dark side
Isolated, stubborn, controlling
At your best
Rational, dependable, independent
Love High ideals
People born on April 26 have a tendency to seek out “beautiful” people who are out of reach or unsuitable. It is best for them to look for those who can pamper them and appreciate their hard work and dedication. They do have high ideals in a relationship and want someone who will be as faithful and loving as they are.
Health The lighter side of life
People born on this day have a wonderful sense of humor and it would benefit their health and well-being to express it more. There is a tendency for them to become rigid and stuck in their lifestyle habits, and it is important for them to learn to be more flexible. Because physical activity does not figure strongly in their life, they can be at risk from problems with their weight or with weight-related issues such as diabetes or heart disease. As far as diet is concerned, they should avoid saturated fat and excess sugar. Regular exercise, preferably every day, is essential for their health and well-being. If joining a gym doesn’t appeal, brisk walks, jogging and cycling, together with simple lifestyle changes like taking the stairs instead of the lift, will all benefit. Wearing, surrounding themselves with or meditating on the color yellow is good for increasing their optimism, sense of humor and confidence.
Career Born gardeners
These people like to nurture and tend things, and careers that allow them to constantly check on or oversee progress, such as gardening, landscaping, farming, education, manufacturing, social work, charity work, photography, movie-making, medicine, and real estate, will appeal. They may also be drawn toward business, banking and stockbroking, and, because they are creative and good with their hands, design, writing, painting, and music.
Destiny To pay meticulous attention to detail
The life path of people born on this day is to stop the notion of perfection from getting in the way of their psychological development. Once they are able to be more objective and flexible in their approach to life, their destiny is to ensure quality is produced by meticulous attention to detail.
