Luck maker

Stop comparison shopping

Don’t compare yourself with others because it will keep you feeling negative and low in self-esteem. Lucky people know that they are special, unique and irreplaceable, and this positive attitude about themselves attracts luck.

People born on August 25 are difficult to ignore. Their polished image and excellent social skills get them noticed wherever they go, success seeming to come easily to them. Others often think of them as self-assured, attractive, clever, accomplished, and charismatic. In short, they are real live wires and life always seems more interesting and dynamic when they are around.

Although they are seductive, outgoing and vital on the outside, these people seldom feel like this on the inside, and they will drive themselves extremely hard to prove to others that they are really self-assured and accomplished. They rarely let down their guard and if they feel threatened or insecure in any way they may over-emphasize their polished public image to compensate. Unfortunately, this can lead to conceited, arrogant or superficial words or behavior that can alienate the very people they seek to impress. It is vital for people born on this day to focus less on charming others to win their approval and more on cultivating their own sense of self-worth.

From childhood people born on this day may have been inclined to analyze situations practically in order to understand and improve them. As they grow older they may devote a great deal of energy to cultivating and projecting their public image. After the age of twenty-eight, however, there is a turning point and over the next thirty years they become more aware of the importance of close relationships and partnerships. Creative abilities are also enhanced during this time. After the age of fifty-eight there is another turning point which brings an emphasis on greater self-awareness and personal power. In some respects, these may be the years when they feel at their happiest and their best because the focus is on their individuality.

However, whatever age they are, if they can find the courage to discover and develop their real talents and sharp intellect, they will find that the accomplished, clever, attractive, and creative persona they have created isn’t a mask any more but a reality.

On the dark side

Insecure, superficial, vain

At your best

Charismatic, exciting, sociable

Love Endless love

People born on August 25 will often have many love affairs or relationships in their lives, some at the same time. They are so eye-catching that attracting partners is not a problem; the problem is relating to others on a deeper, less superficial level. Constantly falling in love may in fact be an expression of their inability to love themselves; intimacy with another will only be possible when they have worked on their self-worth.

Health Exercise for your mind

People born on this day tend to place too great an emphasis on physical fitness and appearance and as a result their mental and emotional fitness tends to get neglected. As far as diet is concerned, they should limit their intake of meat and dairy products, as digestive problems are indicated, and go for a more vegetarian-based diet. Regular moderate to intense exercise is recommended as it will help them release pent-up tension and boost their selfesteem. They would also enjoy the relaxing and sensual benefits of massage, and cognitive behavior therapy would help them challenge their tendency to think negatively. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color yellow will boost their self-esteem and sense of personal power from the inside.

Career Born promoters

People born on this day may be attracted to professions such as law, medicine or the caring services where they can help or support others. They may also excel as managers, team leaders or media representatives, teachers, trainers, counselors, or charity workers. They may be interested in research, science or chemistry, mathematics or engineering, or possess musical or artistic talents and a love of writing.

Destiny To inspire and lead others

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to trust themselves and their unique talents more. Once they feel truly confident in their insights, their destiny is to inspire others to develop their own creativity.
