Look within

People born on April 16 love to talk about the meaning of life, being fascinated by life’s mysteries. At the same time they are seductive, charming and very amusing. They know how to make other people smile, and friends, loved ones and colleagues will often regard these humorous and dreamy individuals with great affection.

Although they have the ability to see the humor in almost any situation, they are not superficial individuals. Quite the opposite; they have a deep awareness of life’s tragedies, which gives them the insight to understand that humor is one of the best and most cathartic responses. Despite being wise and insightful, they can be generous to the point of stupidity; others often take advantage of their willingness to share. They also tend to over-indulge in everything they enjoy, easily slipping into irresponsible behavior.

In general, strong emotions make these people feel uncomfortable and they like to lighten intense moments with humor. This can make their contribution invaluable during times of stress, as it teaches others how to deal effectively with setbacks. It can, however, also work against them; instead of facing situations that need to be resolved, they avoid them. It is important for them to resist the temptation to sidestep conflict, as this can lead to hidden resentments in the future.

These people can appear as if they are living in a world of dreams. While it is true that they are visionaries, they are able to translate their dreams into reality. Until the age of thirty-four they focus on building a secure foundation for their dreams. Then, after the age of thirty-five, they have a greater interest in interpersonal relationships and communication skills. This is a positive development for them, as becoming more aware of the dreams and ideals of others—and not just their own—aids their psychological growth. Once they strike a healthy balance between their inner and outer selves, others will admire them not only for their humor and gentle presence, but also for their inspirational strength of purpose.

On the dark side

Dreamy, extreme, permissive

At your best

Entertaining, kind, generous

Love Spiritual union

People born on April 16 believe in the possibility of a soul mate and dream of a once-in-a-lifetime emotional, physical and spiritual union. Highly idealistic, they often enter into a relationship with high expectations and an ability to sink into the depths of their partner. They need to make sure they find someone with a fine mind who shares their interests; otherwise their intensity may be more scary than exhilarating.

Health Down to earth

People born on this day don’t tend to worry too much about their health, and this optimistic attitude more often than not ensures that their health is good. They do, however, need to make sure they don’t take it for granted. They are more likely to suffer from psychological rather than physical problems, such as stress, anxiety and feeling depressed when it seems that others are not on their wavelength. As far as diet is concerned, they should not ignore their hunger signals, eating little and often to keep their energy levels high. Regular exercise, such as aerobics, running, swimming, and cycling, is important for them as it will help them relax more. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color green will help them feel more grounded.

Career Born comedians

These people have a talent for making others smile and would make excellent comedians, tour guides, entertainers, clowns, actors, writers, photographers, artists, designers, and architects. Because they also have great organizational skills, they would also excel in careers in science and research, and their love of action may draw them to careers in travel and sport.

Destiny To use humor in their fight for issues

The life path of people born on this day is to learn that it is impossible to please everyone. Once they have learned not to take on too many burdens, their destiny is to fight for the issues that motivate them in a way that entertains but also intrigues others.
