Luck maker

Let yourself off the hook

Feeling guilty because you don’t think you are doing enough will do little to improve your selfesteem or your luck-making potential. Let go of guilt and positive change will enter your life.

People born on April 30 often give the impression of being calm and collected. They love the good things in life, approaching others with affection. They can be extremely funny, as long as the joke is not on them, and their natural good cheer ensures they are the center of attention. However, contrary to their relaxed exterior, such is their intelligence and drive that they will feel unfulfilled unless they can devote themselves to their work or another person.

They tend to value commitment, responsibility and duty above all else; this is why they present a hardworking, cheerful and reliable front to the world. They are extremely capable practically and intellectually, trying their hands at almost any task. As pillars of the community, they may feel inclined to take up a charitable cause or generally do good deeds in the neighborhood.

There is a danger that their commitment to their boss, family or friends is so powerful it can become unquestioning and they end up performing tasks or running errands unworthy of them. They should not to be blind in their devotion or let the rank of a person intimidate them into compliance. They should also be careful that their dedication to a method, cause or project does not turn into stubbornness and obstinacy when alternatives are presented. Any form of aggression or criticism is likely to be met with anger or veiled threats; they need to learn to take criticism for what it is: someone else’s opinion. Fortunately, between the ages of twenty-one and fifty-one they may concentrate on new interests and acquiring knowledge; during this period they should try to treat criticism as a learning experience.

These charming, multi-talented and reliable people have the potential to make their mark on whatever project or goal interests them. They should be careful, however, that in their need to feel committed they don’t relinquish their objectivity. But when they do commit themselves to a worthwhile cause, they can surprise everyone with their spontaneity and ability to bring about progress.

On the dark side

Rank-conscious, obstinate, blinkered

At your best

Reliable, committed, upbeat

Love Personal space required

People born on April 30 are incredibly devoted and loyal in a relationship but they do need to take breaks every now and again. Their partners need to understand this and not interpret it as a problem within the relationship. Those born on this day therefore need to be clear about what makes them feel happy in a relationship and seek out someone who isn’t clingy.

Health Tender, loving care

People born on this day often neglect their own needs for those of another, in particular aging family members. It is crucial for their health and well-being that they take regular time out and make time for themselves and their interests; if they don’t, they may find themselves victims of stress, depression or, in extreme cases, cancer. Regular exercise is essential as long as their devotion to a particular training method is not taken to extremes. As far as diet and lifestyle are concerned they need to make sure they don’t over-indulge in rich food, drink, nicotine, and drugs. There are healthier ways to indulge their sensual nature, such as exercise, massage or mind-body therapies such as yoga or tai chi. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the colors pink or orange will encourage them to attract some tender, loving care and put their own needs first.

Career Born officers

These people have the potential to make their mark on any career they choose, as they are highly valued for their intelligence and reliability. They may be drawn toward careers in education, law enforcement, the army, commerce, promotions, advertising, or sales. Alternatively they may be attracted to the caring professions, to humanitarian concerns or to social work. If they are creative, the world of the arts or entertainment, especially production or design, will appeal.

Destiny To demonstrate the importance of respect and dedication

The life path of people born on this day is to make sure they are as committed to the development of their own talents as they are to those of others. Once they are able to find that balance, their destiny is to move the world forward by demonstrating the importance of respect and dedication.
