You’re drawn to people born on…
July 23 to August 22
You are both flirtatious and passionate, and this can be an exciting and fulfilling relationship.
Stop saying “yes but”
When someone congratulates you, resist the urge to qualify your success with “yes buts” and apologies. Simply say thank you. Savor your every accomplishment, and your upbeat attitude will attract even more success your way.
Although they are extraordinarily intelligent and capable individuals, people born on October 1 will often stand out in some way. Sometimes it will be the dignified way they carry themselves, or in their remarkable dedication and devotion to a cause they believe in, but whatever it is there is always something special and unique about them that makes others look or think twice.
On some occasions they can come across as stern, even proud, but to those who know them well they are incredibly warm and open-hearted. The cool front they present to the world is often a form of defense they have built up over the years as they learned how to overcome challenges and setbacks, but eventually their perseverance and dedication have earned them the just reward of rising to the top. Sadly, some of them may find that once they have reached the pinnacle of success they have aimed for all their lives, it isn’t as rewarding as they hoped. The way for them to deal with this predicament is to worry less and live a little more; to feel truly successful and fulfilled they need to inject more laughter and fun into their lives.
Before the age of twenty-one they are likely to be concerned with developing their social and relationship skills, but after the age of twenty-two there is a turning point in which issues concerning personal power take center stage. It is absolutely crucial in the years that follow that they don’t take themselves and their careers too seriously, and get a sense of perspective.
Above all, these people need to think big, aim high and set high standards for themselves. Their strength is the dedication they show to a purpose or goal, and as long as they don’t isolate themselves from others with their perfectionist tendencies, they will not only be able to make a positive contribution to the world by transforming what is rough and ready into a smooth and progressive system, they will also discover within themselves an unusually large capacity for real happiness.
On the dark side
Obsessive, intimidating, isolated
At your best
Dedicated, stylish, original
Love Hidden passions
People born on October 1 may take a while to open up to someone but when they do they can be incredibly loyal, supportive, patient, warm, and generous—and they expect the same in return. They may appear cool on the surface, but their partner will be delighted and surprised by their hidden sensuality and passion.
Health Time out
People born on this day are often extremely energetic and as a result they may take on too many responsibilities. Most of the time they are capable of multi-tasking and juggling home and work life, but sometimes they become stressed, anxious and fatigued. Regular vacations and downtime are therefore essential for their psychological and emotional health. As far as diet and exercise are concerned, they tend to have a sensible, balanced attitude but there will also be times when they overindulge. Alcohol could be their big weakness with potentially damaging impact on their liver and kidneys, as could recreational drugs, so they need to limit their exposure to both. Regular moderate to vigorous exercise is recommended to help boost their immune systems and channel pent-up anxiety and tension. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color orange will encourage them to be more spontaneous in their approach to life.
Career Born supervisors
These people have a strong affinity with the scientific and technical professions but they may also be drawn toward political and humanitarian pursuits or toward creative expression in art, music, drama, and dance. Other possible work choices include business, where they will excel in management or executive positions, or in law, financial advice, and education, where they may drift toward philosophy and psychology.
Destiny To leave a lasting legacy behind
The life path of people born on this day is to learn to balance their professional and personal life. Once they have understood the importance of nurturing themselves emotionally, their destiny is to effect social change, leaving a lasting legacy behind that will inspire and benefit their peers.
