December 22 to January 19
You have much to argue about, but the attraction between you is such that making up afterwards will be wonderful.
Think before you act
Lucky people actively take steps to reduce the number of mistakes they make by learning about the issues involved and listening to knowledgeable people before acting.
People born on December 8 tend to sparkle with energy and enthusiasm and their lively personality will attract attention wherever they go. Their passionate approach to life is their defining feature, and they display intense emotional and sensual responses. When an opportunity presents itself in either their personal or professional life, they rarely hesitate and jump in head first.
Whether it is committing to an individual, a team, a project, or an idea, they can’t see the point of being half-hearted; their nature is to give one hundred per cent. True idealists, people born on this day are constantly engaged in a quest to find fulfillment, emotional, intellectual or spiritual, and their infectious optimism may inspire others to seek their own personal nirvana. The trouble is that the perfect fulfillment they seek is unobtainable, and this can cause them to become manic or confused in their search for stimulation. Relaxing their expectations of perfection and understanding that imperfection is the natural human state is essential for their psychological growth.
Until the age of forty-three there is an emphasis in their lives on the need for order or structure; they should take advantage of opportunities presented to them to be more practical in their approach. This is because they don’t always tend to direct their energy well, and their lack of good judgment can cause them to get involved in relationships or situations that are destructive or obsessive. After the age of forty-four there is another turning point, and this time they may feel a growing need to develop their individuality.
Whatever age they are, the key to their potential for happiness and success is to be more cautious and aware in their approach to people and situations so that their passionate intensity does not overpower their common sense. With a little more realism added to their stunning repertoire of creativity and idealism, they will find the fulfilling passion they have been searching for all their lives, in the process bringing great happiness to others.
On the dark side
Obsessive, addictive, irresponsible
At your best
Energetic, charismatic, passionate
People born on December 8 tend to be attracted to people with opposing views to their own and therefore to tempestuous relationships. It is important for them not to confuse tension with passion. Once in a long-term relationship they can be incredibly romantic and spontaneous, but their partner needs to be aware that their resolve may not always hold firm when they are tempted to stray.
Health Don’t burn the midnight oil
People born on this day tend to go to bed in the small hours of the morning and if possible to get up as late as they can. Although everyone has natural sleep preferences, they should try to make sure they are in bed by midnight as studies show that people who do this tend to get better-quality sleep, which is essential for the physical and emotional health and well-being of these people. They should also beware of recreational drugs and alcohol because they have addictive tendencies that need to be managed and minimized. As far as diet is concerned, moderation is the key; the same goes for exercise, which is extremely important for them for its mood-boosting powers. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color blue will encourage them to be more objective and responsible, and carrying a titanium quartz crystal can help them think before they act.
Career Born dancers
These people tend to go where their heart leads them, and as long as they can sustain their passionate intensity their potential for success is strong whatever career they choose. They also have a great desire to inspire others, so they may excel as writers, dancers, actors, singers, artists, and performers. Self-employment will be an appealing option for them, as might working for large enterprises with plenty of opportunities for career advancement, change and travel.
Destiny To bring happiness to others
The life path of people born on this day is to balance their passion with their need to be more responsible. Once they are able to direct their instincts, their destiny is to bring happiness to others.
