People born on December 11 may have felt from an early age that there was a serious purpose to their lives. Whatever profession they choose, they are notable for the driving energy and determination they bring to their causes and visions.

As perfectionists they will demand as high a level of commitment and dedication from others as they demand from themselves. This will mean that they often excel professionally, but it can also work against them and exhaust everyone involved, including themselves. As far as their personal and social life is concerned, there is no let-up in their intensity; they are influential and persuasive individuals with the ability to win over—or in some cases wear down—others with their charming persistence. In fact, when it comes to advancing their cause or agenda, one of their favorite approaches is to cultivate influential contacts, because they know that with powerful backing almost anything is possible.

Until the age of forty a running theme will be the need for a more practical and realistic approach to achieving their goals in life. During these years they are likely to assume positions of responsibility or authority but they should ensure that the single-minded pursuit of their goals does not make them manipulative or overly materialistic. It is particularly important that their networking strategy does not slump into ambitious social climbing. After the age of forty-one there is a turning point, highlighting a desire to express their individuality and independence. They may become more involved with social issues and establishing a life outside work.

It would benefit these people always to consider the way others perceive them or the image they present to the world. Once they discover the lighter side of life, together with the spiritual ideals to balance their materialistic inclinations, they will find that their serious purpose is to become an outstanding human being capable of improving the lives of all around them—and in some cases humanity as a whole.

On the dark side

Materialistic, manipulative, selfish

At your best

Energetic, purposeful, charming

Love Inveterate charmer

People born on December 11 are charming and seductive, and few can resist their spell. However, they need to ensure that they don’t abuse their magnetic power to get who they want. They are drawn to ambitious, hardworking individuals like themselves, but may feel happier with someone who has a more spontaneous, relaxed approach to life.

Health Take care of your soul

People born on this day pay great attention both to their appearance by making sure they are always well presented, and to their minds by making sure they are stimulated. But unless they learn to nurture their soul as well they are likely to feel unfulfilled and unhappy. They would benefit greatly from a more spiritual outlook on life and more quiet time spent alone reflecting on their real priorities in life. As far as diet is concerned, they need to cut down on red meat and dairy products, while increasing their intake of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, oily fish, nuts, and seeds. They should throw away any ready meals or similar foods high in additives and preservatives. Regular exercise is essential for them, and to keep their weight down and their mood up they should aim for at least 30 minutes of aerobic activity a day, with three to four sessions of body toning a week. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color purple will encourage them to think of higher things, as will regular meditation and yoga sessions.

Career Born executives

These people may be drawn to careers in engineering, technology or mechanics, but they may also excel in business, debating, law, and research. With their fine mind they could also be gifted teachers, artists and writers, and their natural executive skills might place them in senior management positions.

Destiny To achieve their progressive aims

The life path of people born on this day is to learn that their need for a serious sense of purpose is in fact their need to find a higher purpose. Once they have rediscovered their spiritual dimension and their sense of humor, their destiny is to work with energy and determination toward the achievement of their progressive aims.
