Your greatest challenge is…
turning your back on self-pity
The way forward is…
to understand that feeling sorry for yourself will bring absolutely nothing positive into your life, just the pity of those whose admiration you seek.
You’re drawn to people born on…
July 23 to August 22
You are exuberant and daring characters, and if you share the limelight this can be a fulfilling and exciting relationship.
Power is in your thoughts
Let go of negative thoughts and difficulties in your past. Your luck-making power is in your thoughts. This means you are the only one who can create the life you deserve.
People born on December 19 come across as sensitive individuals, but this conceals their remarkable hidden strength and courage. They are not afraid to express themselves freely, and when people cross or upset them they are honest enough to reveal their true feelings. Others may mistake their sensitivity and outspokenness as weaknesses, but releasing their emotions in this way actually makes them feel stronger.
They are uncompromisingly individualistic in their approach and are unlikely to thrive in environments where they need to conform. They have a strong need to challenge convention, question norms and generate original alternatives. Although their revealing honesty can work against them, others tend to respect them for their integrity and individuality. Their greatest desires are to educate or enlighten others and to further human progress.
When faced with challenges or setbacks they will reveal their fighting spirit and steady determination to succeed. This gives them endless potential for professional success, but unfortunately they sometimes seem unable to show a similar resilience in their personal life. In fact they are prone to bouts of negativity and self-pity that can manifest in flashes of anger or outrageous behavior, perplexing and confusing themselves and others. If they can learn to get a grip on their negativity by turning inward the same spirit of daring and courage that they display in the outside world, there are no mountains too high for them to climb.
Until the age of thirty-two they are likely to focus on practical issues and there will be a need for order and focus in their lives. A turning point occurs around the age of thirty-three where there is a growing desire for more personal freedom and experimentation. If they can learn to think before they act and to positively redirect their thoughts when they start to spiral into negativity, these are the years when they can really come into their own, finally revealing to the world just how committed they are to making a valuable contribution to the greater good.
On the dark side
Negative, depressed, perplexing
At your best
Courageous, honest, expressive
Love Expressive and open
People born on December 19 love to flirt, and others are instantly drawn to their expressive and open personality. They attract lovers easily but need to be careful about their choice of partner because they are prone to bouts of anxiety and negativity. They need a partner who is both sensitive and supportive to help them work through these bad patches.
Health Calm and in control
The biggest threat to the health and well-being of people born on this day is their tendency to indulge in negative feelings. Depression is a real possibility if they do not learn to accept and manage their emotional intensity. They should remind themselves that they are in charge of their feelings and not the other way round. If they are unable to attain this level of objectivity, cognitive behavioral therapy techniques will certainly help them reprogram their thoughts. They should steer clear of drugs of all kinds, and also limit their consumption of alcohol because when under the influence their lack of control can have potentially dangerous, even violent, consequences for both themselves and others. The best way for them to keep their thoughts and mood positive is to eat a healthy, balanced diet, get between six and eight hours of quality sleep every night, and take plenty of vigorous exercise. Staying in touch with friends and loved ones, keeping a diary and developing interests and hobbies outside work are also recommended. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color blue will encourage them to be calmer and more in control of their emotions and lives.
Career Born performers
These people will often choose to share their knowledge with others through writing and teaching, but they may also be drawn to music, acting, the media world, publishing, advertising, the healing professions, and art.
Destiny To enlighten and enchant others
The life path of people born on this day is to learn to accept and manage their emotions, even the negative ones. Once they are able to loosen up and enjoy their life a little more, their destiny is to enlighten, influence, educate, and enchant others with their emotional honesty.
