You’re drawn to people born on…
November 23 to December 21
The two of you share a passion for exploration and discovery and this can create an adventurous and supportive bond.
Rest rather than run
Some of life’s greatest achievements happen not when we are actively engaged in trying to make things happen but when we are simply open and available to what shows up.
People born on February 3 have a probing and inquisitive mind that thrives on variety and constant change. They are boundary breakers and nothing excites them more than a challenge or a new experience. What makes them unique, however, is that when they are actively involved in a task they can give it their undivided attention.
Once people born on this day have broken things down and learned all they think they can, they will immediately move on to something else. There is a danger that this approach to life can lead to flitting from one subject to another without acquiring any real depth. However, when they do find something that really challenges them they will probe into every minute aspect of it with an incomparable eye for detail.
These people don’t just enjoy challenges, however, they need them to feel alive; if there are none to engage their active mind they may attempt to make their life more difficult. For example, they may set themselves impossible deadlines at work or push themselves to the limits physically. It is therefore important for them to learn to find ways to deal with their boredom.
Their greatest fear is to have their personal freedom to explore new frontiers taken away. This could result in a fear of commitment to partners and family, and unreliable or erratic behavior. This isn’t to say they are incapable of closeness; they simply need to feel that their personal freedom has not been sacrificed. Between the ages of seventeen and forty-six there are opportunities for them to develop greater emotional closeness; after the age of forty-seven there is a turning point that gives them the emotional confidence to handle commitment.
People born on this day will achieve greater happiness when they understand that when others try to seek to be close to them they are not necessarily trying to trap them. In fact, once they have learned to resist the tendency to back off when things get intense, there are very few problems or situations that the adaptable nature of these strong individuals cannot resolve.
On the dark side
Aloof, restless, unreliable
At your best
Inventive, original, detailed
Love Catch me if you can
People born on February 3 do have a fear of commitment and until they find “the one” they may flit from partner to partner. Ironically, despite their fear of emotional closeness, when they are in a relationship they tend to be the one who throws themselves into it with an intensity that can backfire. It is important for them to understand that just as they need personal freedom in a relationship they need to allow their partner that very same freedom.
Health Go with the flow
Fortunately, most people born on this day have the intelligence to understand the importance of taking care of their health, but they can easily get sidetracked. They also need to make sure they don’t miss out on regular health check-ups and understand that freedom to experiment should never be at the expense of their health. A routine approach to diet and exercise rarely works for people born on this day but they should make sure that most of what they eat is healthy and incorporate lots of spontaneous exercise into their lives. To help themselves stay the vibrant, full-of-life person they can be, a few drops of grapefruit, lemon, orange, rose, sandalwood, or ylang ylang essential oil sprinkled into a handkerchief to breathe in now and again may well do the trick.
Career Born technicians
These people are great technicians, and careers in science and technology may have great appeal. However, with their natural gift for words they may also be drawn to writing, lecturing, teaching, sales, counseling, or social work. Whatever field they choose, be it technical, scientific or creative, the originality, courage, and determination to succeed and master new talents that set people born on this day apart from others will greatly help them.
Destiny To walk untrodden paths
The life path of people born on this day is to learn to value the personal as much as they value the interpersonal; once they can do that, their destiny is to boldly strike out into new frontiers and to walk previously untrodden paths.
