Luck maker

Don’t over commit yourself

If your list of “to dos” is too long, decide what you are going to do and cross the other items off. This will attract luck because by being selective you will notice an increased energy and clarity of mind.

The assertive but warm-hearted individuals born on April 11 have the ability to see problems in both an emotional and a practical way, making them excellent problem solvers and mediators. They are capable of bringing even the most divergent of opinions into harmony with great charm and tact.

If there is a good cause to promote, these people are often the first to volunteer to help. They are eternally optimistic, with the ability to devote their energy and interpersonal skills to a plan of action, then promoting it with tenacity. They are also realistic enough to know that the support of others will benefit them; so they set out to charm and convert any opposition to their cause by means of skilled diplomacy.

Although they often find themselves the center of attention, these people do not purposely seek the limelight, preferring to be a part rather than a focus of the action. In their professional life, they are more concerned with ideas than image, working tirelessly to find common ground for agreement.

Unfortunately, they aren’t always as diplomatic in their private lives and at times they can be unresponsive to the needs of those closest to them. They often have plenty of admirers, loving nothing better than planning get-togethers where large numbers of people can mingle; but to their nearest and dearest they can be cool. Fortunately, around the age of forty they are likely to focus their energies less on financial security and popularity, and more on close friends and loved ones.

They also are great communicators, working particularly well when given charge of a team with the opportunity to inspire and encourage others. They run the risk that in knowing what is best for the common good they refuse to consider alternative viewpoints, so it is important for their psychological growth to keep their minds open to other, perhaps better, ways of doing things. Once they have learned greater flexibility, they can use their powers of persuasion, tenacity and clear-sightedness to champion justice, creating a more nurturing and peaceful world.

On the dark side

Impersonal, unenthusiastic, selfish

At your best

Diplomatic, intelligent, intuitive

Love Bit of a tease

Never short of potential partners, some might consider the charming and popular people born on April 11 a bit of a tease; but often their coolness is because they don’t give their heart until they are absolutely certain that affections will be returned. When they do commit to a relationship, however, they are warm, loyal and romantic.

Health Time out

People born on this day need to make sure they give themselves plenty of time to relax and unwind as they suffer from a tendency to push themselves too hard, especially mentally. They would benefit enormously from nature walks where they can observe the magical workings of the natural world. Sleep is also of great importance as they need more than most, and they should avoid burning the midnight oil as this will have a negative impact on their health. As far as diet is concerned they are unlikely to have problems with their weight, but if they do they should eat more nutritious foods, such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains, and cut back on refined and processed foods rich in sugar, salt and additives. Regular exercise will also boost their thinking skills and encourage them to take time out. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color green will help restore natural healing and balance in their lives.

Career Born judges

People born on this day are ideally suited for careers in which they can help others find common ground, such as negotiation, translation and diplomacy. They also make great agents, teachers, counselors, psychologists, politicians, judges, and social workers. They have the business skills and charm to succeed in sales and marketing, and the communication skills needed for careers in management, the clergy and charity work.

Destiny To enlist others to their progressive ideals

The life path of people born on this day is to recognize the importance of relaxation and quiet emotional fulfillment. Once they are able to do that, their destiny is to enlist the support of others to their progressive ideals.
