Live in the now

Lucky people have a habit of squeezing happiness out of their present circumstances, so don’t waste the present focusing on the future, and make sure every day is your lucky day.

People born on December 23 are hardworking, quietly ambitious individuals who are at their happiest and their best when they can identify areas of improvement and then formulate original, sometimes radical but always practical solutions. Gifted organizers, they prefer to plan and work toward and then carefully prepare for improvement.

Those born on this day distrust sudden change and feel uncomfortable when it is thrust upon them as it upsets their steady and determined plans for progressive change and progress. In fact, when they assume positions of power—which more often than not they do, given their authoritative presence and excellent communication skills—they can be resistant to change. They can also become controlling and authoritarian when challenged, and when alternative viewpoints to their own are given they can become hostile and defensive. It is therefore extremely important for their psychological growth and their professional success that they learn to be more flexible and open-minded in their approach to people and situations.

Before the age of twenty-eight, they may have shown a responsibility beyond their years, perhaps getting their foot on the property ladder long before their peers, taking on the responsibilities of a partner and family, or firmly establishing themselves in their career. After the age of twenty-nine, however, there is a gradual shift of emphasis which highlights a growing need to be more carefree and independent and to express their individuality. Another turning point occurs when they are sixty: they are likely to become more sensitive and responsive to their creative urges.

Whatever their age or stage in life, they need to resist the urge to withdraw into stubbornness, inflexibility and complacency. This is because when they start to be more spontaneous and to share their compassion, generosity, creativity and curiosity with others, they will discover that they have the ability to lead and inspire others to follow them along the optimum path to progress, in whatever direction, or directions, it takes everyone.

On the dark side

Complacent, authoritarian, inflexible

At your best

Responsible, innovative, steady

Love Dynamic but cold

People born on December 23 are dynamic, charming and rarely short of admirers, but they can be quite cold and withdrawn when it comes to affairs of the heart. It’s crucially importance that they get in touch with their own feelings and those of others because their strong emotions need to express themselves positively in a loving, supportive relationship.

Health Cautious

People born on this day tend to have a conservative, cautious but stable approach to their health. Although this can sometimes block their progress in life, their chances of living to a ripe and healthy old age are high. On the down side, however, are their tendencies to worry and overwork, which can lower their immunity and make them prone to stress and mood swings. Rheumatism could be a problem with advancing age and they need to make sure they keep as active and flexible as possible in their daily lives. A regular program of moderate activity is highly recommended, as are daily stretching exercises. They also need to keep as mentally flexible as possible; whatever their age, learning a new skill or language is highly recommended, as is further education. As far as diet is concerned, these people need to cut down on salt and sugar, and increase their intake of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, oily fish, nuts, and seeds to keep their skin and hair glowing and their libido healthy. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color red will encourage them to be more passionate and impulsive.

Career Born judges

These people are well suited to careers in politics, law enforcement or commerce, although those who wish to use their creativity may be attracted to science, art or spirituality. Possible work options include management, administration, promotion, photography, art, writing, music, and drama.

Destiny To advance the greater good

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to be more tolerant, accepting and flexible. Once they are able to go more with the flow of life, their destiny is to direct others along lines that can advance the greater good.

Power Thought

“There is no greater power for me than the power of the present moment”
