Sharpen your awareness

Sharpen your awareness by continuing to seek out new experiences and information. The more inquisitive and alert you are, the more lucky breaks are likely to present themselves.

People born on December 26 are never afraid to push themselves and their ideas forward, and with their non-stop energy and determination it is not surprising that they often achieve what they strive for in life. Once they reach the top, however, they often refuse to move anywhere else and their energy is no longer devoted to moving forward but to sustaining their vantage point.

They are therefore a curious mixture of ambition, single-minded perseverance and a desire for security and stability. The danger with this combination, even though it does attract considerable professional success their way, is that they run the risk of becoming too mechanical or unfeeling, not just toward themselves but toward others. It is vital for their psychological growth that they get in touch with their feelings and those of others, as they can come across at times as intense, serious and “hard” individuals.

Until the age of twenty-five they will often feel a need for order and structure in their lives, and practical considerations are important. During these years—and indeed at any stage in their lives—the key to their success will be to practice the art of compromise, remembering that the feelings of other people should always be taken into consideration. After the age of twenty-six there is a significant turning point, giving them opportunities to express their individuality. After the age of fifty-six there is likely to be an increased emphasis on emotional receptivity, imagination, or psychic and spiritual awareness, and these are the years when they are likely to feel at their most content and fulfilled.

Whatever stage or age they are at, they must avoid the tendency to cling to what they know, or to become complacent or overly security conscious. Once they understand that often the greatest forward progress requires taking risks, giving up some ground, and exploring unfamiliar territory, they have the potential not only to make things happen on a grand scale, but also to inspire others.

On the dark side

Defensive, rigid, unfeeling

At your best

Energetic, methodical, inspirational

Love Dynamic

People born on December 26 are dynamic, attractive individuals, and once they set their sights on someone they tend to get them. They have a tendency to be controlling in close relationships and should learn to give others the freedom and autonomy they expect for themselves. Loyalty is extremely important for them, and any kind of indiscretion on the part of their partner is particularly hard for them to deal with.

Health A big shrug

People born on this day can suffer from tension in their bodies, triggering aches, pains, headaches, and fatigue. They should perform exercises—particularly shrugging around the shoulder area—to release some of this pent-up energy, otherwise their health will suffer. As far as diet is concerned, they may suffer from digestive problems and should therefore increase the amount of fiber, fruits and vegetables in their diet and cut down the amount of sugar, salt, caffeine, saturated fat, and processed or refined food they eat. Moderate exercise is essential, especially activities such as dance, swimming or aerobics which encourage them to be more flexible; yoga is also highly recommended. Wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the color orange will encourage them to be more spontaneous and warm in their approach to life.

Career Born publishers

These people may find themselves drawn to technology, politics, social services, or the media. Possible work choices might include big business, publishing, advertising, promotion, writing, acting, and the film world. Whatever career they choose, they need to one that offers them plenty of diversity and challenge.

Destiny To make radical changes

The life path of people born on this day is to get in touch with their emotions and the feelings of others. With an open mind and an open heart, their destiny is to promote ideals that can make wide-ranging and concrete improvements in the lives of both themselves and others.

Power Thought

“My loving heart knows no bounds and my flexible mind knows no boundaries”
