Luck maker

Celebrate your uniqueness

Lucky people understand that self-belief is the root of all happiness and good fortune because of the like-attracts-like principle.

However hard they try to fit in or lose themselves in the crowd, people born on August 21 will always attract attention. Their appeal is so powerful and bright that it refuses to blend in or conform.

These people tend to stand out but not because others reject or ridicule them. They stand out because there is something incredibly likable and appealing about them; they may be beautiful to look at, they may have a seductive voice or they may be extremely athletic or intelligent. Whatever the secret of their appeal, the curious thing about these people is that a part of them longs to withdraw and not attract attention. They often resent feeling like a square peg in a round hole, but as long as they are unable to accept or embrace their uniqueness they will find that their opportunities for success and fulfillment are limited. However, once they are mature enough to celebrate who they are, they can put their natural appeal to work so that the attention they gather can be redirected as they wish.

Until the age of thirty there will be an emphasis in their lives on practically and perfectionism, and these are the years when they are most likely to deny or repress their individuality. After the age of thirty-one, however, there is a turning point that brings a growing awareness of relationships. Their creative abilities might be enhanced as well, and these are the years when they are likely to feel more comfortable with themselves and their exceptional talents.

Above all, they are extraordinarily imaginative, and because they are also blessed with resourcefulness and formidable practical skills to develop their visions they have trail-blazing potential. The only roadblock for them is their tendency to repress their deep creativity and originality, but when they realize that far more satisfaction can be gained from expression and involvement than from detachment and distance, and that people love them for being fresh and original, they have a world of opportunities for success and happiness at their feet.

On the dark side

Withdrawn, confused, elusive

At your best

Interesting, appealing, purposeful

Love Don’t let the one for you slip away

People born on August 21 are so attractive to others that they are often surrounded by admirers and will not spend long periods of their lives single. They need to be careful that their active social life does not make it hard for them to commit to the right partner for them, because they really are at their happiest and their best when in a committed and loving relationship.

Health Seek health not perfection

People born on this day often feel they need to prove or change themselves in some way and this may manifest in a doomed quest for the perfect body. Seeking out a healthier lifestyle is a great thing, but seeking the perfect body is not good or helpful, sometimes even leading to eating disorders and body image problems. They should be aiming for a healthy body that functions, not a perfect body that looks like the models in glossy magazines. As far as diet is concerned, they need to make sure they don’t overload on dairy and meat products, nor on processed and refined foods, as these could lead to digestive troubles. The emphasis should be on fresh, natural foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean meat, oily fish, legumes, nuts, seeds, and healthy oils like olive or sunflower oil. Regular exercise is recommended as it will help boost their immunity and selfesteem. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color violet will encourage them to embrace their unique creativity.

Career Born publishers

These people may be drawn to politics, science or the arts, but whatever profession they choose they will be spurred on by their desire to make positive changes. Their lively intellect may make them choose education, publishing and writing, and their need for variety may draw them toward the travel and tourism industries. Alternatively they may excel in art, music, the entertainment world, and sport.

Destiny To be a role model for those who feel they don’t fit in

The life path of people born on this day is to put less focus on proving themselves and more energy into accepting themselves. Once they have found a way to cope with the interest that others often have in their lives, their destiny is to become a role model for all those who feel different in some way.
