Luck maker


Keep your connections with other people alive and you maximize your chances of luck. People who are isolated are the least likely to get lucky breaks, because luck always comes through someone else.

Liberally endowed with originality, stamina, intelligence, and ambition, people born on April 19 possess unlimited faith in their own knowledge. This means they will also take some knocks but much of their confidence is gained through their experience of victory and defeat.

Possessing a strong competitive streak, if something isn’t difficult or nearly impossible, these people are not interested. With the ability to turn weaknesses into strengths, they are often the unqualified workers who soar up through the ranks. Although career focused, they are rarely materialistic, often being generous with both their time and their money. Their goal is not necessarily to be rich but to be self-sufficient, as in their eyes dependency on another is a sign of weakness. Learning to accept financial support—or any type of support for that matter—from family and friends may be difficult, given the high value they place on self-sufficiency, but reaching out will take them a step forward in personal development.

It is important for them to learn to step back now and again, and let others take the lead. Until the age of thirty-one there is an emphasis on security and routine in their life and they need to be careful not to be over-controlling or to ignore the feelings of others. After the age of thirty-two, however, they may widen their interests, placing more emphasis on learning, knowledge and new skills. If they can teach themselves and others to experiment with new and untested approaches to situations this period in their lives can be extremely productive.

Nothing gives them more satisfaction than knowing that the success they have achieved has been of their own making. They instinctively take control, providing vision and direction in cooperative ventures; others tend to look to them for leadership because their confidence and poise under fire make their advice difficult to ignore. Once they have learned to delegate, to listen more and talk just a little less, their stamina, mental acuity and personal magnetism can help them succeed in virtually anything.

On the dark side

Over-bearing, dismissive, self-centered

At your best

Committed, skillful, charismatic

Love Only you

Once people born on April 19 have fixed their sights upon a potential partner, the matter is usually settled as their sex appeal is irresistible. However, this is not to imply that their judgment is always perfect and their high sex drive can frequently lead to hasty and unhappy marriages, or affairs and lots of children. Although they do not find it hard to attract partners, they really do fare best with a steady stream of love from one special person.

Health Empty yourself out

A healthy, balanced diet, quality sleep and regular sex are the keys to good health for people born on this day. Sports provide a positive and healthy outlet for their competitive instinct. Both individual challenges, such as jogging, and group sports such as baseball and soccer will be worthwhile. These people often have a secret yearning to relinquish the daily battles of the world and tend to do best when they allow themselves to recharge—through gardening, massage, a vacation, or simply taking themselves less seriously. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color purple will encourage them to look inward and think of higher things.

Career Born freelancers

Their excellent communication skills mean that careers involving people and persuasion are ideal, such as public relations, advertising, law, politics, project management, or construction. Their creativity may also draw them toward careers in fashion, performing arts, journalism, design, or being an intermediary or agent. They are born self-starters, so working for themselves may appeal and, because their idealistic nature yearns to accomplish something that will benefit others, they may be drawn toward medicine, teaching, charity work, or work that serves the community.

Destiny To introduce efficient, smoothly running and progressive systems

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to cooperate with, as well as take charge of, others. Once they have learned the importance of being part of a team, their destiny is to introduce efficient, smoothly running and progressive systems into the world.
