Luck maker

Be an energy source

When you invite other people into your limelight or offer them recognition, you become an energy source and others will want to keep you center stage. The outcome of your generosity will be new opportunities for you.

People born on December 4 are ambitious, hardworking and resilient individuals who can display remarkable self-control in both their professional and personal lives. They have the rare ability to take charge of their emotions without losing their creativity, and this gives them tremendous self-confidence, power over themselves and authority over others. They are like flamboyant and daring but highly skilled and well-prepared captains with a thirst for adventure and all the courage and ingenuity they need to successfully steer through uncharted waters to undiscovered lands.

Although they cherish their own individuality and are unwilling to submit themselves to the ideas or authority of others, they may feel compelled to impose their ideas on those around them, sometimes forcefully. Unaware of this contradiction between their directional urges and their own right to autonomy, they can come across as dictatorial or egotistical; but this is rarely the case. For the great majority of the time they are genuinely concerned for the greater good, rather than any selfish ambitions. Like a brave captain who will not leave their ship until everyone is safe, their natural sense of justice and honor will propel them toward activities that are intended to bring about a more enlightened or better-regulated society.

At the age of eighteen, people born on this day may start to manifest their natural leadership skills and over the next thirty years they will gradually become more practical, goal-orientated and realistic in their approach to achievement. They may also have a strong desire for order and structure in their lives. After the age of forty-eight there is another significant turning point which highlights a growing need for freedom, new ideas and expressing their individuality within a group setting.

Whatever age they are, if they can find a middle way between nobility and ambition, love and success, compassion and power, independence and the need to compromise, they will not only be capable of inspired leadership, they will also be capable of becoming the visionaries of their generation.

Health Healthy balance

There will be times, however, when they feel tired or run down, and they should learn to pace themselves and take regular vacations. They also need to master the art of delegation. Allowing others to help them will not only ease their workload, it will give them time to find a healthy balance of interests outside of work. Meditation techniques are highly recommended because they will enjoy the sense of calm, peace and balance they can bring. As far as diet is concerned, they need to cut down on sugar and processed and refined foods, and to increase their intake of whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Moderate to vigorous exercise is recommended, particularly team sports and outdoor activities where they can work off their aggressive tendencies. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color purple will encourage them to think about higher things, and bring a true sense of harmony, peace and balance into their lives.
