Luck maker

Be bold, yet realistic

Unlucky people set unattainable goals for themselves, preparing themselves to fail. The more realistic and obtainable your goals, the more likely you are to achieve them.

People born on December 15 are among the most upbeat individuals of the year. Once they set their sights on something, however unattainable, they truly believe that they can attain it. This positive, can-do and can-have attitude tends to attract most, if not all, of the professional and personal success their many talents deserve.

As well as being expansive and optimistic in their outlook, they are also blessed with an insatiable curiosity. They delight in discovering new information and in sharing what they have learned with colleagues and friends. Although their curiosity is infectious and their optimism energizing, it is important for people born on this day to consider whether or not the information they are revealing and the sense of possibility they are encouraging are in the best interests of themselves and others. This is because they see the world through the eyes of an optimist, and an optimist doesn’t take into account or protect themselves against the negative potential of a situation. In other words, their plans can sometimes be unrealistic or—worse still—foolish, and their influence on others can be condescending or irresponsible.

Until the age of thirty-five people born on this day will have many opportunities to develop a more practical and realistic approach to life and they need to take advantage of these because optimism can only take them so far. After the age of thirty-six, however, there is a turning point which highlights a growing need for independence, progressive ideas and expressing their individuality. During these years it is vital for them to learn to listen to the advice of others, weighing up the pros and cons of a situation before jumping in over their heads.

Throughout their lives the key to their success will be their ability to recognize and leave behind situations that are unproductive, so that they can invest their outstanding potential in doing what they do best: moving in the direction of progress, while motivating and inspiring others with their invigorating enthusiasm, stunning creativity and can-do attitude.

On the dark side

Uncontrolled, manipulative, foolish

At your best

Energizing, inspirational, popular

Love Spoiled for choice

People born on December 15 are passionate and sensual individuals who rarely lack admirers. They also have an insatiable appetite for new experiences and, although lovers will be plentiful, a quality relationship will prove elusive until they learn greater self-control. Once in a relationship with someone special they are capable of great devotion, but they can suffer from fluctuating moods to which their partner needs to be sensitive.

Health Breakfast like a king

The optimism that is characteristic of people born on this day tends to carry through into their attitude toward their health. They tend to take their health for granted and to overlook problems for which they should seek their doctor’s advice. As far as diet is concerned, they are advised to breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and supper like a pauper, because stacking their food intake in this way can give their digestive system a rest while they sleep. It will also help them sleep better, as they can be prone to insomnia and night waking. When it comes to exercise, the best advice for these people is to take up an activity that they enjoy, whether it be dancing, tennis, swimming, or any other sport, because studies show that when people enjoy exercise they tend to stick to it. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the colors blue or indigo will encourage them to be more realistic in their approach to life, as will carrying a malachite crystal.

Career Born advertisers

These people have the ability to excel in business, new technology and management, but they may also be drawn to sales, writing, teaching, music, the media, advertising, and performing. Whatever career they choose, variety and plenty of travel will help keep them motivated.

Destiny To enlighten, inspire and educate others

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to see all aspects of a situation, not just the ones they want to see. Once they have improved their judgment and learned to be more realistic, their destiny is to enlighten, educate and inspire others and, by so doing, make their mark on society.
