Luck maker

Be an encourager

Look around you and find someone who needs inspiration. Encourage them to do what they can, rather than think about what they can’t. When you start to encourage another person, you feel encouraged yourself.

People born on April 13 are born reformers, willing to work tirelessly to make changes they consider crucial. They are an endless source of new ideas and, although some of these might be considered eccentric, people appreciate their unusual approach to problem solving.

These highly intelligent people can often handle tasks that most others find exacting. They excel at resolving problems and coming up with a better way of doing things. Mental stimulation is essential to them and if they don’t feel challenged they can get easily bored and restless, with a tendency to fidget. They don’t like sitting still and try to inject as much activity as they can into every moment. Their propensity to seek out new challenges is particularly highlighted after the age of thirty-seven, when their focus changes from that of material stability to intellectual curiosity.

These people don’t actively seek out the company of others because they are essentially private, preferring to connect with the world and make their mark through their work. Their greatest satisfaction comes from moving humanity forward or from employing their considerable talents in projects that benefit others. They derive great satisfaction from the comfort and support of a few close friends and family, preferably those who validate their vision and provide them with support when their ideas are criticized. Although skeptical of convention and compelled to seek out alternative solutions, they are nonetheless deeply sensitive to the opinions of others; even if these opinions hurt, they are rarely deflected from their chosen course.

Because people born on this day value their solitude, often feeling the need to withdraw from scrutiny, especially when working on a project, they can often be criticized for being remote, distant or in extreme cases weird. But the truth is that they are highly sensitive individuals with a need for privacy. But when the time feels right they can overcome any fear or hesitation they might have and, like the true pioneers they are, can step out with boldness, often breaking new ground in the process.

On the dark side

Reclusive, misunderstood, anxious

At your best

Innovative, bold, eclectic

Love Alone together

People born on April 13 are at their happiest and their best when they are in a stable, loving relationship, preferably with someone who understands their need for independence within a relationship and who can keep up with their fast pace. To get really close to someone, however, they need to work on slowing down their fast pace.

Health Don’t hide away

People born on this day need to resist their tendency to hide away when their feelings overwhelm them; because if they don’t find ways to manage these feelings, they can easily spiral into depression or depression-related illnesses, such as eating disorders or self-harm. They must also make sure they don’t use their intense need for privacy as an excuse to avoid personal responsibilities and commitments. They should avoid excessive consumption of alcohol and other escapist pastimes, such as watching too much television or staying too long in bed. Exercise is a great way for them to become more externally focused; they would benefit greatly from social forms of exercise such as dancing and aerobics, although they will tend to prefer solitary pursuits such as walking. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color orange will encourage them to feel more optimistic and friendly.

Career Born politicians

People born on this day tend to be attracted to careers in which they can translate their reforming vision into reality, making great politicians, judges and military commanders, as well as musicians, writers and actors. They may also be attracted to any career that offers them opportunities for management, supervision or leadership, or to be a pioneer in some way.

Destiny To turn their progressive vision into a reality

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to cope positively with discouragement. Once they are able to turn rejection into resolve, their destiny is to turn their progressive vision into a reality.
