Luck maker

Give others credit

Lucky people give credit and share their success because when you recognize someone for the help they have given you, they are more likely to think well of you and steer opportunities your way.

People born on December 9 are blessed with a fertile imagination. From childhood they will have cast themselves in the role of the dashing hero or heroine swooping in to save the day and astonishing everyone with acts of daring and courage. In adulthood they often become highly energetic individuals who love to be the center of attention.

They have a powerful urge to make important and inspirational contributions to the world and, with their imaginative mind, fixity of purpose and adventurous spirit they do possess outstanding pioneering potential. Born leaders, their biggest challenge is patience. Their patience can easily snap when things aren’t going exactly the way they want them to or when people aren’t listening to their suggestions. They need to learn when to promote their progressive ideals and when to step back and let things unfold. Calming their emotional intensity in response to any challenge they meet is crucial for their psychological growth, as well as for their chances of both professional and personal success.

Although they may have been shy as children, by the time they reach their twenties they will start to come out of their shells; if they can’t manage this, developing their self-confidence is crucial because these people were born to be in the limelight. Until the age of forty-two there will be opportunities for them to find realistic ways to achieve their goals in life. They need to take advantage of these; if they don’t, their dreams of progress and adventure will never move beyond the planning stage. After the age of forty-three there is a turning point when they may feel a desire to be more independent and to express their individuality.

At whatever age or stage in life they are, they have an all-encompassing, albeit occasionally self-centered urge to play a leading role in the lives of those around them. If they can implement their original and progressive visions it will give them the potential to make not just an imaginative but a real and significant contribution to the world.

On the dark side

Selfish, controlling, unrealistic

At your best

Progressive, romantic, dynamic

Love Emotional intensity

People born on December 9 are romantic, ardent and passionate lovers, but for long-term success in relationships they need to find someone who can also show them the joys of the simpler, quieter things in life. Although routine and responsibilities are not for them and they need the freedom to travel and explore different experiences, when they do find a partner who is romantic and adventurous, but also solid and dependable, they can be surprisingly loyal and supportive.

Health Pent-up energy

People born on this day tend to be high-energy individuals who live fast and eat fast. This can cause digestion problems so it is important for them to learn to slow down, sit down and chew their food carefully. Eating on the go is bad news for their digestive health and their waistline because they are more likely to eat foods that are high in calories, fat, and additives and preservatives. For their psychological and physical health they also need to control their temper; when blinded by anger they can become accident prone. If they cannot find ways to deal with their anger it can lead to stress and frustration, both potentially dangerous to themselves and others. Anger-management techniques are recommended if the problem is severe; for milder cases, meditation and breathing techniques, or cognitive behavioral therapy, will help. Regular vigorous exercise, running in particular, is recommended as it can release pent-up tension. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color blue will help them to be more in control of their emotions.

Career Born lawyers

These people may find themselves drawn to the political or scientific spheres, or to artistic media such as music, writing, literature, or drama. They love to express their ideas, so they may also be drawn to education, law, business, journalism, social reform, and the world of entertainment.

Destiny To lead others toward progress

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to be calmer and more realistic in their approach. Once they have taken charge of their emotions, their destiny is to lead others to implement original and progressive changes.
