Luck maker

Treat yourself more often

Lucky people know the importance of feeling good about themselves and their lives. When people feel happy and relaxed, they are more likely to attract luck their way.

The majestic people born on April 21 often inspire others with their graciousness and hard-working approach. Willing to push themselves hard, they often end up way ahead of others. Financial reward and getting ahead of others are not their motivation, however; what motivates them is a desire to push themselves as far as they can go.

They like to set themselves high standards, and so strong is their self-knowledge that only the most unforeseen of circumstances will prevent them from achieving their goals. They are dignified and self-assured people whose reliability, tenacity and sensitivity to alternative viewpoints earn them the respect of others, who tend to regard them as noble, gracious, loyal individ uals. Never afraid to voice their opinions, they will only do so in a positive, constructive way.

Although they are highly driven, they know how to relax and make them-selves and others laugh. They also have a love for the good things in life and, although this is in keeping with the regal or privileged inclinations of their personality, it can provoke addictions to sex, food, drink, and other “pleasurable” pastimes. They are especially vulnerable when their reputation at work is criticized. Fortunately, after the age of thirty, when they put greater emphasis on clear communication and new interests than on material things, they become more resilient and less at risk from losing themselves in these ways.

These people love nothing better than to help others reach their full potential, and can be generous with their time and love. They should be careful not to become too controlling and to give those in their charge the chance to make their own mistakes. There may be some chopping and changing in their professional life, particularly in their thirties and early forties, but when they do find their feet their single-mindedness and endearing desire to see others progress will help them realize their ambitions and, like the gracious nobles they are, earn them the respect and loyalty of others.

On the dark side

Pleasure-seeking, controlling, obsessive

At your best

Honest, regal, energetic

Love Give and take

People born on April 21 tend to be the givers in relationships and it is important for them to learn to receive as well. Fear of becoming vulnerable may also make some of them retreat into isolated self-sufficiency. Once in a relationship, they are loyal and faithful but may sometimes stay in it too long out of a sense of misguided loyalty; so it is important for them to stay in touch with their emotional needs.

Health Naturally slim

Although naturally slim, people born on this day often have a great love for fine food and wine, and are prone to over-indulgence; as a result they may suffer from fluctuating weight. They may also suffer from disorders to the neck and throat, such as sore throats and thyroid disorders. A healthy, balanced diet rich in natural, unprocessed foods, as well as oily fish, nuts and seeds, will help balance their hormones and their weight. Regular exercise is essential, as it will help them beat food and other cravings, keeping them fit and slim at the same time. Because they are so sensual, they may be attracted to physical therapies such as massage and aromatherapy, all of which will benefit them greatly. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color purple will help them focus less on physical pleasures and more on finding inner fulfillment and satisfaction.

Career Born motivators

Any career which allows these people to motivate or encourage others, such as teaching, coaching, consultancy, management, or counseling, will appeal. They may also have an affinity with all things artistic and be drawn toward art, music, dancing, singing, writing, or acting. Other careers that might appeal include law, social reform and garden design.

Destiny To encourage and inspire others to reach their full potential

The life path of people born on this day is to avoid extremes of behavior. Once they have learned to tread the middle way, their destiny is, by example, to encourage and inspire others to develop their full potential.
