Luck maker

Master the art of quiet contentedness

People born on April 20 often have a hypnotic personality; others willingly follow their lead, sometimes even blindly. They are hungry for success and the admiration of others, with a burning desire to see their goals realized. Fortunately, they also have a highly developed sense of fair play; only rarely will they use their hypnotic powers for personal gain or unworthy causes.

Once they find a cause or a goal to inspire them, these people will often identify with it. Despite identifying strongly with group values there is, however, a side to them that remains deeply private, sensual and sensitive. In tune with all their senses, physical touch is their sustenance; to break down barriers, they will often be the first to kiss, hug or hold hands. This combination of ambition and sensitivity can occasionally make them moody and needy, but it also gives them an enigmatic and compelling quality.

When these determined and charismatic people set their minds on something, they will allow nothing and no one to stand in their way. Such ambition and tenacity suggest that they have the potential for outstanding success in all areas of their lives. The danger with their clarity of vision and purpose is that it can inspire strong opposition. Since they find it hard to accept criticism of any sort, they have a tendency to block out alternative opinions and viewpoints, often dominating others. They also have a tendency, if thwarted, to retreat into a fantasy world far removed from the reality of others.

It is important for people born on this day to recognize the importance of maintaining an open mind and to accept that, despite their personal magnetism and ability to inspire others, they may not always be right. This tendency to be inflexible is highlighted in their first thirty years, but after the age of thirty they become more interested in learning and communication. If they can take advantage of this opportunity to become more open-minded, there is nothing to stop them achieving the ambitions that inspire them.

On the dark side

Egotistical, isolated, stubborn

At your best

Sensual, charismatic, inspirational

Love Hugs and kisses

People born on April 20 are very tactile and like to show their affection physically, so if they are not holding their partner’s hand at the movie theater something may be wrong. They can be highly strung at times, but when they find a partner who enjoys being as busy as they are, they make loving, understanding and deeply sensual lovers.

Health Pass on the sugar

People born on this day need to make sure their diet is not too high in sugar or saturated fat, as there is a tendency for them to comfort eat when they are feeling low; this will have a negative effect on their blood-sugar levels, their waistline and their health in general. Their diet should be as rich as possible in fresh, natural, unprocessed foods such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables, lean meats, nuts, and seeds. Such a diet will not only keep their health in balance, but also their moods. As far as exercise is concerned, they should avoid competitive sports and choose activities that help them take time out from competition and getting ahead, such as walking, swimming, cycling, or dancing. Mind-body therapies such as yoga, meditation and tai chi are also recommended. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color green will help restore their energies and inspire trust in others.

Career Born project managers

These people have the focus, determination and tenacity to become excellent negotiators, agents, project managers, consultants, or advisors. They also possess natural leadership qualities, particularly as a manager, executive or entrepreneur. A strong creative ability may lead them to the world of arts and entertainment or setting up their own business as a freelancer.

Destiny To lead and inspire others toward progressive ideals

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to open their mind to alternative visions of the future. Once they are able to accept the possibility of other realities apart from their own, their destiny is to lead and inspire others toward progressive ideals.
