Your greatest challenge is…
The way forward is…
to understand that you, like everyone else, are human—a mass of contradictions.
You’re drawn to people born on…
December 22 to January 19
You share an appreciation of the good things in life, and this can be a passionate and satisfying union.
Listen and learn
Nobody likes a know-all. Demonstrating a sincere openness and willingness to listen and learn, even if you think you already have the right answer, will draw other people to you.
Most people born on September 8 have a very black-and-white view of the world. This makes it all the more surprising that, although others are quick to acknowledge their intellectual superiority, they often come across as complicated or enigmatic individuals. This is because instead of showing others their true selves, they will often take on the identity of the cause or group they’re representing.
The fierce determination and conviction to set others on the right path, combined with their excellent communication skills, earns these people great respect from others, although this may not extend to affection. Problems—and occasionally bitter confrontation—can occur, however, when others do not agree with them. They are often so convinced of the superior merits of their position that they will often dismiss any conflicting viewpoint; this can not only gain them enemies but earn them a reputation for being narrow minded. It is crucial, therefore, for them to appreciate the negative effect their superior attitude can have on others, even those whose interests they are passionate about promoting.
Between the ages of fourteen and forty-five they will gradually become more aware of the importance of social relationships and their creative abilities will be enhanced. These years can be dynamic ones if they can learn to be a little less bossy and a little more sensitive toward others. After the age of forty-five there is a turning point when they are likely to become more self-aware; now the emphasis is on power, intensity and personal transformation. During these years, and indeed during any time in their lives, they are likely to have successfully assumed leadership positions or to have become an integral part of a leadership group.
Nothing is more important to their psychological growth during these years than their ability to show tolerance toward others, because although these advanced souls do often know what is best for others and for the world, other people and the world may not yet be ready to listen.

Influential, progressive, committed
Love Not black and white
People born on September 8 may not always be easy to get close to and, because they don’t tend to rely on the approval or opinions of other people, others may feel that they don’t need anyone. This is of course untrue. People born on this day are at their happiest and best when in a loving and supportive relationship; they just need to relax a little and understand that when it comes to affairs of the heart, there are no rights or wrongs.
Health Fixed ideas
People born on this day can be very stubborn when it comes to their physical health and it is important that they don’t neglect important advice from doctors and well-meaning advice from friends and loved ones. As far as diet is concerned, they need to steer clear of excess, especially when it comes to foods rich in sugar, salt, additives, preservatives, and added fat. The emphasis should always be on fresh and natural produce. Regular moderate exercise is also highly recommended as it will help them deal with stress, preventing the risk of cardiovascular disease or high blood pressure to which they are prone. They would also benefit from daily stretching exercises, such as those performed in yoga, as these would encourage them to be more flexible in both body and mind. Finally, wearing, meditating on, and surrounding themselves with the color yellow will encourage them to be more creative and optimistic.
Career Born politicians
These people tend to identify strongly with their careers and are well suited to careers in politics, the military, law, and education. Other careers that might appeal include commerce, research, science, writing, journalism, and the worlds of art or entertainment.
Destiny To point others in the direction of progress
The life path of people born on this day is to learn to let others make their own mistakes. Once they have found the courage to be themselves, their destiny is to point others in the direction of progress.
