Luck maker

Take a mental sabbatical

Pretend you are taking a year off. Make a list of what you would love to do, then create your own luck by figuring out how to make at least one thing on your list come true.

People born on April 12 are often surrounded by a fascinated group of listeners. They are well liked for their ability to get others to open up to them, possessing the knack of making people laugh at their own insecurities, offering others an opportunity thereby to rise above themselves.

Stimulating, witty and fun, they are interested in everyone and everything. Their inquisitive minds are forever on the alert, looking out for the latest news or research to inform or entertain. Curiously, they find it hard to share their feelings, being more comfortable in the role of interviewer, entertainer or informer than of confidant. This elusiveness can cause tension both at home and at work; it is important for them to learn to open up about their own feelings.

These people don’t like to miss a thing and they may therefore spend a great deal of their twenties and thirties wandering from job to job or even country to country in search of a satisfying profession. While this would prove disastrous for most, for them it can work because every experience they have, even the ones that disappoint and frustrate, is regarded as a learning opportunity. Then, some time in their forties, through this process of trial and error, they find a goal or purpose which can make use of the vast store of knowledge and experience they have thus far accumulated.

Keen observers of the human condition, people born on this day prize knowledge above all else and love to share what they have learned with others. There is a danger that they can become judgmental in the process or heavily influenced by the opinions of others; it is important for them to stay curious and open-minded, and not become dogmatic. Getting to know who they are and what they, not others, think about things is central to their success. This is because when they get in touch with their own feelings, as well as those of others, they can not only entertain and inform, but inspire as well.

On the dark side

Elusive, opinionated, frustrated

At your best

Interested, articulate, perceptive

Love Lucky star

People born on April 12 tend to be fortunate when it comes to affairs of the heart, often stumbling into the perfect situation with the minimum of effort. Once in a relationship, however, their tendency to remain elusive and hide their feelings can cause friction, so they need to learn to open up if they want their love to last.

Health Inner balance

It is extremely important for people born on this day to learn to spend time alone; not with a book or with the TV or radio on, but with just themselves, so that they can check in with their thoughts and feelings. As far as diet is concerned, they often like to make eating a social occasion in which they can entertain others, but they do need to watch that they don’t overeat as a result. Taking time to chew their food so that it can be digested properly is important. Regular exercise is essential, as is sufficient sleep—although their health is generally good, they should not take it for granted. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color purple will encourage them to look inward and think of higher things.

Career Born investigative journalists

These people have excellent communication skills and can excel in careers in journalism, reporting, politics, research, show business, and the arts. Being progressive and original in their thought, they may also be attracted to professions such as public relations, design, science, and the healing professions as well as police work, law, business, and finance.

Destiny To invigorate others with optimism and wit

The life path of people born on this day is to uncover the truth about themselves. Once they are able to get in touch with who they are and what they want, their destiny is to invigorate and inspire others with their optimism, originality and wit.

Power Thought

“It is safe to believe in and trust myself”
