Luck maker

Tilt your thoughts toward optimism

Research shows that unlucky people tend to think negatively and lucky people tend to think more optimistically; so adopt an attitude of gratitude and positive expectancy, and you’ll turn your luck around.

People born on August 27 have much to give the world and may often be found helping others or doing charity work. They have a huge humanitarian spirit and from an early age may have felt that they need to heal the world in some way. The key to their happiness will depend on whether or not they can allow the world to give back to them as well.

They are generous, special spirits and they are at their happiest and best when making others happy, or improving others’ lives in some way by performing a valuable service. Self-sacrificing, they drive themselves incredibly hard and expect others to offer the same level of devotion and commitment to their ideals as they have. Their generous urge means that they are universally admired and respected, but their success can be limited by their tendency to be easily disillusioned, seeing the world as an unhappy, negative place. Developing optimism and positive thinking will help them balance giving and receiving, and turn their life from a struggle into an adventure.

Until the age of twenty-five there is an emphasis on being mentally focused and discriminating, and they can help themselves considerably during these years if they think and worry a little less about the common good and get involved more in making a difference. In fact, the positive energy that practical involvement gives them will help them find their way in life. After the age of twenty-five there is a turning point when there is an increased need for partnership or relationships with others, with the possibility of exploring literary, artistic or creative outlets in some form.

Whatever age they are, however, they are always likely to be universal in their approach to life and, if they are able to find an outlet for their humanitarianism and spirituality, they might not only find deeper fulfillment—they might also find that their generosity and kindness are repaid many times over.

On the dark side

Driven, depressive, aloof

At your best

Generous, altruistic, hard working

Love Generous and too giving

People born on this day are loving, warm, generous, and giving, and unlikely to be without a partner for long. Sometimes they may feel deeply alone but this is only because they are not allowing themselves to open up to the love of others. Learning to receive as well as give in a relationship is vital for these passionate and altruistic people.

Health Don’t submerge your needs

People born on this day need to beware that they don’t submerge their physical and emotional health needs for another’s, as this will not only make them less effective in their helping role, it will lead to their own unhappiness and frustration. Spending more quality time alone and pampering themselves with massages or other treats are highly recommended, as are cognitive behavior therapy and meditation if they are prone to negative thinking. As far as diet is concerned, they need to make sure they avoid alcohol, recreational drugs and other addictive substances when they feel low; comfort eating could also be a threat to their health and to their waistline. Regular exercise, preferably the kind they can perform alone, will boost their immune system, manage their weight and boost their self-esteem. Wearing the color red will help them avoid needy types who will drain their energy, and lavender essential oil as an air freshener will help lift their mood.

Career Born charity workers

People born on this day have the potential to excel in the fields of science, medicine, financial planning, accountancy, and investigative journalism. Although they are art lovers, they tend to be drawn to practical and intellectual pursuits that satisfy their realistic and straightforward natures, and may lean toward education, mathematics or architecture as well as humanitarian pursuits, social and charity work.

Destiny To make the world a better place

The life path of people born on this day is to find a balance between their own needs and those of others. Once they are able to cultivate an attitude of positive expectancy, their destiny is to set an inspiring example to others and, by so doing, make the world a better place.
