Listen to your favorite piece of music

Intuition is a little-used but powerful tool that can help your improve your luck. To access it, set the volume low, close your eyes, stop all directed thought and listen to whatever comes to mind.

People born on April 5 have star quality, but they don’t tend to seek out fame or even fortune. For them, the satisfaction and reward always lies in the work itself. Like true athletes totally dedicated to their sport, their goal is to constantly learn, improve and strive for their personal best.

These people tend to focus on work and career, valuing solid achievement but, because they are highly principled, their success will never be at the expense of others. They need to feel that they deserve their success and, given the fact that they are blessed with both creativity to inspire others and tenacity to see things through, they have great potential to succeed in life. Their manner tends to be quiet and unassuming, and they like to avoid conflict if they can. This doesn’t mean they are pushovers. When their plans are threatened or their beliefs criticized, others may be surprised at their bluntness and drive to succeed. Once they have settled on a chosen course, they will stick to it and defend it passionately. Although this dedicated approach will attract success, it is important for them to understand that some change is essential for progress and development.

Their tendency toward stubbornness is highlighted between the ages of fifteen and forty-five, during which there is an emphasis in their life on security and stability. After the age of forty-six, however, they become more interested in travel, communication, learning new skills, and change. If they can take advantage of the opportunities offered to them, this can be an extremely positive period in their life.

The strong and consistent personality of these people makes them natural candidates for leadership; but because they set extremely high standards, they should be careful that they don’t become too demanding of themselves and others in the process. They also have the determination to overcome the most frustrating of obstacles and, even though they don’t seek or even realize it, their energy, dedication and will-power will earn them the applause of all their contemporaries.

On the dark side

Stubborn, inflexible, repetitive

At your best

Hardworking, dedicated, energetic

Love Tempestuous

People born on April 5 tend to be hard to reach emotionally and they need to find a partner who will encourage them to open up. Once in a relationship, staying faithful may be a problem because they have great charm and have no problem in attracting lovers. Their challenge is to learn to commit, and to keep their relationships steady and harmonious.

Health Don’t go overboard

People born on this day give so much of themselves to their work that when it comes to their personal life they tend to overindulge by eating or drinking too much, partying too often and generally being reckless. They need to make sure they don’t take their health for granted or take unnecessary risks. As far as diet is concerned, the emphasis should be on fresh natural foods and they should reduce their intake of foods rich in sugar, salt and additives. Regular exercise is recommended, particularly exercise they can perform alone, such as walking or jogging, as they need this time to reflect on things and recharge their energies. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color green will help restore their energies, inspiring healing and inner balance.

Career Born sports stars

These people have a pioneering spirit and they may excel in careers in which they can test themselves constantly such as sport, music, dance, art, theater, or movie-making. They may also set up their own business or be drawn toward careers in law, the civil service, politics, business, or education.

Destiny To motivate and inspire others to be the very best

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to be more flexible in their goals and opinions. Once they have learned the art of compromise, their destiny is to motivate and inspire others, by their own example, to be the very best that they can be.
