Luck maker

Have more fun

The more relaxed you are and the more fun you have with your life, the more likely you are to feel good about yourself and attract good luck your way.

People born on December 22 may have formulated a long-term plan for their lives as early as childhood. At various stages in their lives they will review their goals, setting themselves new ones to achieve in the next five or ten years ahead. These people know what they want out of life and how they are going to go about achieving it; this augurs well for both professional and personal success.

Understanding the importance of preparation, they are willing to bide their time and work steadily toward their goals in a self-assured and dignified way. Their remarkable poise is the result of an absolute belief that winning in the end is their absolute birthright; because they are so comfortable in their self-belief they can be a great role model for others. The danger, how ever, is that they can sometimes become a little too complacent, remaining for years in a position that doesn’t challenge them. When a difficult challenge finally does emerge, they may fail to live up to their own and everybody’s high expectations. The secret of their success is to keep learning, fine-tuning their skills and testing themselves; that way they can live up to the hype that they have created.

Until the age of twenty-nine they are likely to be goal-orientated and to have a practical approach to their achievements. But at the age of thirty they reach a turning point that highlights a growing need for freedom, new ideas and expressing their creativity. After the age of sixty there is another turning point when there is likely to be more emphasis on their emotional receptivity, imagination and intuitive awareness.

Whatever their age or stage in life, they need to find a balance between self-belief and humility, between long-term planning and spontaneity, and between seriousness and having more fun. As soon as they do strike this balance they will maintain it with their characteristic poise, finding themselves at last in exactly the right position to develop the unusual potential for happiness, success and fulfillment associated with this birthday.

On the dark side

Narrow-minded, controlling, workaholic

At your best

Prepared, self-confident, dignified

Love Accomplished

People born on December 22 tend to be attracted to people as accomplished and as intelligent as themselves, but they may actually feel happier with those who are more rough and ready in their approach to life. It may take a while for them to let down their guard and show their partner that they are human, but when they do they can be passionate and loyal lovers.

Health Flexibility and variety

The sooner people born on this day learn to play as hard as they work the better. This is because unwinding, having fun and spending more time with loved ones will give them the sense of balance and perspective they need to be more productive at work and find the sense of fulfillment they long for. They also have a tendency to repress feelings that are difficult for them to understand, and the more they can open up and trust the better. Friends and family may help them do this but they may find counseling or therapy beneficial. As far as diet is concerned, they should aim for as much variety as possible, and when it comes to exercise they would benefit most from activities that encourage them to reach, jump, bend, and stretch, encouraging them to be equally flexible in their approach to life. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color orange will encourage them to be more open and fun-loving.

Career Born architects

People born on this day will flourish in careers that offer them clear signs of progression. Possible work options include finance, stockbroking, accountancy, administration, politics, management, research, science, and community work. Alternatively they may wish to explore their latent creativity in acting, design, architecture, or music.

Destiny To put their innovative plans into action

The life path of people born on this day is to find a balance between their professional and personal needs. Once they understand that life is a series of challenges and that there will never be a time when they stop learning about themselves and about life, their destiny is to put their plans or innovative concepts into action so that they benefit society.
