Just do something

Sometimes when you can’t decide what to do you simply have to do something and stop dithering. If it doesn’t work out, at least you will have learned about yourself from the experience.

Those born on February 1 tend to be multi-talented individuals who refuse to conform to traditional ways of thinking or doing things. Despite the fact that others are often swayed by their conviction, it is not uncommon for them to make a spectacular turnaround a month or so later.

This unique combination of originality, intuition and flexibility means that people born on this day have an ability to attract and keep success. They can assess a situation quickly and formulate an appropriate course of action but they are also capable of dramatically changing direction as long as it takes them in the direction they want to go. They can do this with ease because they have the maturity to understand that there will always be different viewpoints. They have values and beliefs to guide them but they never shut out options that could potentially bring good fortune their way.

The willingness to learn and adapt that people born on this day favor means that they are a unique mixture of seriousness and fun, easily able to relate to and influence everyone they meet. The only danger is that by accommodating themselves to others they can lose touch with who they are. It is especially important for them to shift their focus more toward greater self-understanding and to become more aware of the effect others can have on them. Fortunately, from around the age of nineteen there is a turning point which places the emphasis firmly on developing and understanding their goals in life; at around the age of forty-nine there is a shift toward even deeper self-awareness.

With their ability to adapt and strike out in any new direction, people born on this day are often trail-blazers. Although it can sometimes be tough for them to decide what to do, once they know where they are heading and, more importantly, who they want to be, their powers of communication, combined with their versatility and charisma, have the potential to attract more success than they could ever have dreamed of.

Love Heart on sleeve

People born on February 1 tend to wear their heart on their sleeve and prefer relationships that are honest and open. They are never short of admirers, but they also long for the security of a relationship that allows them to be truly themselves. As long as their lover respects them with an honest approach they make loyal, entertaining and loving partners.

Health Breathe in and out

Those born on this day often have complicated emotional lives and this can predispose them toward nervousness and sensitivity, and unhealthy lifestyle choices that can increase their chances of poor health. They may also be prone to hypertension and heart problems. It is extremely important for them to avoid stimulants, alcohol, smoking, drugs, and the temptation of numerous sexual partners, and to find more positive ways to work through their emotions, such as vigorous exercise. A sensible diet, low in refined sugar and rich in nutritious fresh food, such as whole grains, nuts, seeds, fruits, and vegetables, is highly recommended. Regular breathing exercises, such as yoga and ch’i kung, can also help reduce stress and prevent oversensitivity.

Career Born firefighters

Careers that require action or the ability to think or react quickly, for example paramedics, pilots, fire fighters, doctors, or nurses, may appeal to these people. They may also be drawn to management or executive positions in large companies, or sales and promotion. With their love of change they would do well to stay away from routine jobs, and their inventive and original ideas may also draw them toward humanitarian work or setting up their own business or excelling in media, writing and the arts.

Destiny To break new ground

The life path of people born on this day is to discover who they really are and what they want out of life. Once they are able to do that their destiny is to break new ground and to reach further than any have reached before with their determination and drive.
