Luck maker

Go with the flow

Lucky people understand that sometimes in life the best course of action is to go with the flow, let events unfold and trust that eventually the pieces of the puzzle will come together.

People born on September 14 are typically the first port of call when others want to find a solution or understand a situation better. Their critical abilities, creativity and problem-solving skills are exceptional and, because they are not afraid to rock the boat, uncover the underlying causes and tell it like it is, they have a reputation for being innovative and progressive thinkers.

Compromises or half-way solutions are not in their vocabulary and their goal is always to work for improvement. Although their ability to evaluate and suggest ways to improve can make them powerful agents of change and progress, it can also earn them a number of enemies because one skill they need to fine-tune is tact. They don’t mean to offend other people; quite the opposite, as they often have the best interests of others at heart. It is just that they are so insightful, straightforward and direct that they don’t understand that sometimes people aren’t ready to hear the blunt, unadorned truth; they need it to be sugar coated or revealed subtly.

Until the age of thirty-eight there are numerous opportunities for them to become more diplomatic and tactful when relating to others, and to develop their creativity. They should take advantage of these opportunities because successful relationships with others and a flexible approach to situations and people will be the keys to their professional and personal success. After the age of thirty-nine there is a powerful turning point when they are likely to be more self-reliant. It is important at this stage that they understand the powerful influence their words and actions have on others. Listening to the silent voice of guidance in their head before they respond or react will help them interact productively and positively with others.

Whatever age they are, however, once these energetic and constructive individuals have found a cause that is worthy of them, they have the potential not just to turn things upside down but to make sure everyone—including themselves—flies high and lands the right side up.

On the dark side

Confrontational, tactless, controlling

At your best

Creative, influential, constructive

Love Independent streak

People born on September 14 are attracted to unusual people, like themselves, who are not afraid to challenge the status quo or stand up and be counted. With their charm and natural optimism they often attract people who believe in them, so it is important that they don’t become too controlling in a relationship. They also have an independent streak and their relationship needs to allow them that freedom.

Health A stress-free future

People born on this day are generally careful about their health, paying attention to what they eat and how much they exercise. What they fail to understand, though, is the impact that stress can have on their health and well-being. Changing their attitude toward stress will change their life for the better and allow them to concentrate on their people skills and to develop their latent creativity. Plenty of good-quality sleep of around six to eight hours every night is highly recommended, as these people use up a lot of mental and physical energy in the day. Their need for life’s sensual pleasures should also not be ignored, and being in a close, loving relationship will help them to thrive. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color indigo will encourage them to be calm and more sensitive to the effect they have on others.

Career Born builders

The scientific, legal and political professions are well suited to these people, but they may also be drawn to the building trade or planning. Other careers that might appeal include management, research, psychology, and education. Being multi-talented means that they need to feel genuinely enthusiastic about whatever career they choose, as they find it very hard to fake interest in something for which they don’t have a passion.

Destiny To make a substantial mark on the world

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to be more sensitive to the needs or feelings of others. Once they have found a way of influencing others without giving offence, their destiny is to make a truly original and substantial mark on the world.

Power Thought

“I look beyond the behavior of others to find the light within”
