Stop saying “yes” to others

Saying “no” more often to others and “yes” to yourself allows you to put your energies where they belong. If you spread yourself too thinly, you may miss an opportunity to contribute to the world.

Nothing gives people born on April 24 greater satisfaction that knowing they have inspired or guided the lives of others. They have enormous hearts, and devoted and protective friends who believe the world should be a place of universal love and equality.

They can have a strong protective instinct toward those they love, but the parental role they like to assume can be alternately endearing and exasperating. Others are grateful for their attentions but may also find them draining and restrictive. They can be the nurturing parent who finds it hard to let go when a child wants to spread their wings or the lover who cannot think of a world outside their relationship. They can also feel let down when those they love fall from the lofty pedestal by somehow failing to obey their directions. They should learn to allow others the chance to follow their own hearts and, if need be, make their own mistakes.

As well as being devoted to close relationships, they can also become completely dedicated to their career, often fully identifying with it. It can be enormously painful for them if there is a conflict between commitment to work or family, and they may agonize over maintaining a balance. This is because they find it hard to separate their heart and their lives; but if they learn to give a little less and sometimes put themselves first, they may find that it is possible to be more accommodating.

Until the age of twenty-six their lives are often centered on a need for affection and material security; after the age of twenty-seven there are opportunities for them develop more interests. There is another turning point after the age of fifty-seven, placing more emphasis on fulfilling their emotional needs. Throughout their lives, learning to confidently use the word “no” will help them feel less torn between career and family. It will also allow them to make their unique mark on the world and to put their organizational capabilities, creative energies and single-mindedness to their best possible use.

On the dark side

Indecisive, moody, smothering

At your best

Devoted, nurturing, creative

Love Love-struck

People born on April 24 have great magnetism when it comes to affairs of the heart but they need to be careful that they don’t become so love-struck that they are blind to the faults of their partner. They also should avoid becoming too smothering in a relationship, as it will drain the romance out of it.

Health A good clear out

Stability and domestic harmony are extremely important for people born on this day and they may end up sacrificing a great deal of their individuality to achieve it; this can manifest in stress, depression and comfort eating. It is crucial for them to learn to say “no” to the constant demands put upon them and to put themselves first more regularly. There may also be a tendency for them to suffer from hormonal problems or fertility issues. Moderate to light exercise, in particular brisk walking, will increase their fitness levels and also give them much-needed time and space to think and be alone. As far as diet is concerned, they need to avoid routine and choose a varied but light diet, rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Their houses are likely to be cluttered with things from the past and having a good clear out now and again will help them feel freer and lighter. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color red will boost their energy and encourage them to be more confrontational.

Career Born educators

These people have excellent communication skills and a desire to protect and guide others. They can make excellent teachers, nurses, coaches, doctors, and counselors. Writing is also a skill that comes naturally to them, and because they are attracted to public life they can become involved in politics, acting, music, or entertainment. They may also be drawn to environmental concerns, philosophy or mysticism.

Destiny To guide, motivate and inspire others

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to draw a clear dividing line between their personal and professional lives. Once they are able to be more diverse in their approach to life, their destiny is, by example, to guide, motivate and inspire others.

Power Thought

I am in charge of my life. I reclaim my power
