Your greatest challenge is…
not being cynical
The way forward is…
to understand that the pessimistic approach to life is just as unrealistic and unreliable as the optimistic because it means you focus too much on one perspective.
You’re drawn to people born on…
January 21 to February 19
Although different in many ways, you share a love of communication and this can create a union of surprising compatibility.
Keep believing in yourself
Keep believing in yourself, especially in times of misfortune, as this will inspire others to believe in you also. In this way you attract the help that can turn misfortune around and bring good fortune your way.
People born on July 31 are eloquent observers of the human condition. They always seem to be researching or digging around for information, possessing the ability to share or describe people and situations with remarkable accuracy and insight.
Nothing seems to escape their attention, even their own faults, which they are quick to correct. Their communication skills are superb and their insightful observations are often laced with a keen sense of humor. Those less comfortable with social interaction may prefer to use the medium of writing, music, art, or painting to make their contribution, but whether they become artists or not they often have a well-developed esthetic sense, loving to surround themselves with beautiful objects and attractive people.
Their highly developed concern for exploring, describing and occasionally idolizing aspects of human existence, combined with their logical train of thought, tenacity and devotion to their work, suggest that these people can make significant contributions to the store of human knowledge. They are not, however, the types to allow their observations to isolate them from the world around them; if they do make a breakthrough, they are often eager to share their insights and their triumphs.
Work matters greatly to them and they may throw themselves so whole-heartedly into it that they have little time to spare for friends and family. If they are to become emotionally fulfilled, they need to strike a better work-life balance. They also need to watch their tendency to think negatively. Their observations of the harsh realities of life may have led them toward pessimism but they need to ensure this does not become a destructive force in their lives, especially between the ages of twenty-two and fifty-two when there is an added emphasis on practicality and realism. If, however, they can keep their generous spirit alive with uplifting thoughts and compassion, they may be able to transform their high ideals of emotional fulfillment and dreams of beauty into reality.
On the dark side
Work obsessed, anxious, detached
At your best
Articulate, artistic, hard working
Love Shared goals
Physical beauty is a high priority for people born on July 31, but for long-term satisfaction they should seek someone who shares their strong work ethic and artistic sensitivity. With their charm and ability to radiate warmth they can be attractive to others but need to be careful that their restless nature does not involve them in power plays with partners.
Health Don’t sit on the sidelines
People born on this day love to watch and learn but they need to be careful that this doesn’t leave them sitting on the sidelines or with little time for social interaction. Social interaction and participation are important for their psychological growth, helping them manage their thoughts in a more positive, uplifting direction. They also have a tendency to worry endlessly, sometimes in the small hours of the morning, and learning to make decisions about things they can change and letting go of things that they can’t will benefit them enormously. As far as diet is concerned, they need to make sure that they don’t neglect the importance of eating a healthy, nutritious diet because it will help boost their mood and their powers of concentration. Regular moderate exercise and sport are also highly recommended, especially those which involve social interaction such as dancing, fitness classes or team sports. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color orange will encourage them to be more upbeat.
Career Born investigative researchers
The love of observation and description that defines these people may draw them toward investigative careers such as forensic science, detective work, journalism, law, or science. They may also gravitate toward teaching. Other careers that might appeal include management, administration, politics, charity work, medicine, and art.
Destiny To utilize their findings to help others
The life path of people born on this day is to learn to make their thoughts work for them, not against them. Once they have managed to control their tendency toward negativity, their destiny is to make great discoveries and utilize their findings to help others.
