Luck maker

Stop giving up

Giving up on things before you see them through to the end will bring you bad luck. Learn to persevere with things because this is the only way you will discover what you want from life.

Those born on April 4 are catalysts—people who affect the lives of others in a profound way. Their creative energy is explosive, and both at home and at work they have little trouble initiating projects and inspiring others to join their cause.

When they are inspired, these people will typically throw their considerable energy, tenacity and organizational skills into a project, giving them huge potential for outstanding success. Above all, they like to initiate; they also have tremendous courage, happy to strike out in a completely new direction. Too often, however, they move on to the next crusade before the previous one has been completed, leaving those who are less impulsive to reap the rewards. To find true fulfillment, they should settle on a goal and see it through to the end. If they cannot slow down their shocking pace they may eventually wear themselves out, losing their unique and unusual energy.

From their late teens unto the age of forty-six there is an emphasis on security and stability; during these years their dedication and enthusiasm are likely to have a positive influence on everyone they meet or work with. After the age of forty-seven, they become interested in new learning and communication; it is important during these years that they establish their financial security before exploring any new interests.

Catalysts that they are, these people are attracted to challenges and opportunities. They are driven and inspired, and others admire them but may have trouble keeping up with their constant shifts of direction. If they aren’t careful, they may end up alone because others regard them as unreliable. They should surround themselves with friends or loved ones who can gently warn them when they are heading off course. They also need to learn that perseverance and self-discipline are the keys to success. However, once they have learned to ground themselves in reality, they should always be allowed to generate and express their ideas. The world would be a less colorful place without them.

On the dark side

Changeable, impulsive, unreliable

At your best

Original, creative, energetic

Love Hard to pin down

People born April 4 often find it hard to settle down in relationships. They are attracted to unusual people and it takes someone very unique and quirky to pin them down. Partners may feel confused by their constant changes of direction, but once they commit to a relationship they bring a tremendous amount of energy to it, and that more than compensates for any inconsistencies.

Health Slow down

People born on this day can be extremely impulsive and this is the greatest risk to their health. They may throw themselves in at the deep end without proper preparation and this can result in injuries if the activity is physical, stress if the challenge is mental and anxiety if their emotions have led them in the wrong direction. It is extremely important for them to slow down every once in a while and consider the consequences of their actions before they jump right in. As far as diet is concerned, they should eat a wide variety of foods from all the different groups, and vigorous exercise is recommended to burn off some energy, as long as they don’t push themselves too hard. They would also benefit from mind-body therapies such as meditation and breathing exercises to help them feel calmer and more in control. Adding a few drops of lavender essential oil to their handkerchief to breathe in when they feel their hearts racing will help soothe their body and soul.

Career Born organizers

These people have excellent organizational skills, giving them great potential for success in business and finance, as well as in the literary and performing arts and the arena of social reform. They make superb managers at an executive level or possibly working for themselves. Many entrepreneurs, producers, promoters, architects, and designers are born on this day.

Destiny To fight for the well-being of others

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to persevere with things and see them through to the end. Once they have learned greater discipline their destiny is to fight for the rights or well-being of others.
