Luck maker

Don’t take it all personally

Just because people reject your ideas doesn’t mean they are rejecting you. Lucky people have the resilience to take criticism on board without it affecting their self-esteem.

People born on February 7 are progressive individuals with a keen intellect and an inherent sense of justice. It is impossible for them to witness injustice or cruelty without speaking out. Above all, they are prophets with a vision and a burning desire to change social attitudes and right wrongs.

They have a wonderful imagination and a youthful approach to life, but also have a tendency to exaggerate or embellish things. This, together with their openness and spontaneity, can sometimes make them appear naïive or childlike. Others may dismiss them or take them for granted but this is a mistake. Although they like to share their dreams with others, the difference between them and other dreamers lies in their ability to turn dreams into reality.

Quick to identify solutions to problems, these people often pursue their goals with zest and enthusiasm, sometimes with fanatical zeal. This approach makes others sit up and take notice, but occasionally they haven’t thought through their plans. Although their great communication skills easily win them supporters, when things don’t run smoothly and others start to find fault, February 7 people can hide their disillusionment behind a wall of cynicism. They must understand that life is too complex to be seen in terms of right or wrong or quick-fix solutions. They need to learn to accept that there will always be viewpoints differing from their own and that there are many paths—not one—to the greater good. Around the age of forty-three there is a significant turning point which helps them fine-tune their relationship skills and become more open minded.

People born on this day like nothing better than to help others; one thing they will not accommodate, however, is authority. They have little patience for enforced conformity and if forced into a corner they may resort to subversive or disruptive behavior. As well as a rebellious streak they also have great determination; once they can find an outlet for their self-expression and fully commit to it, these modern-day prophets really can make the world a better and fairer place.

On the dark side

Critical, Unrealistic, dissatisfied

At your best

Visionary, fair, spontaneous

Love High expectations

The high expectations that people born on February 7 have can be quite daunting for potential partners. They are more than likely to live up to them themselves but if others are unable to do the same they can become bitter. It is important for them to allow their partner to have their own ideals rather than imposing theirs on them, and to be clear about what is real and what is fantasy.

Health Stress-proofing techniques

People born on this day tend to take care of their health and to eat healthily and exercise regularly, but they do need to make sure that they don’t develop unhealthy eating patterns when under stress. Mind-body therapies such as yoga, tai chi and physical therapies such as massage or even thumping a punch bag should help them unwind when the going gets tough. If stress is a constant part of their life they might want to try burning a chamomile-, lavender-,or sandalwood-scented candle. These, like wearing, meditating on and surrounding themselves with the colors blue or green, produce a calming effect.

Career Born storytellers

These people have the ability to present their thoughts in a compelling way and can make excellent writers or storytellers as well as actors, journalists, politicians, teachers, and lecturers. It is best for them to avoid routine office work, and careers that offer plenty of variety, travel and challenge will appeal. Self-starters they may also find fulfillment working for themselves or they could use their analytical ability in the world of science or research. Finally, humanitarian and social causes as well as the world of conventional or alternative health care will almost certainly appeal, if not as a career than as a passionate outside interest.

Destiny To lead the way to social reform

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to accept that not every-one will agree with them all of the time. When they can be tolerant of divergent viewpoints, their destiny is to persuade rather than dictate to others the need for social reform.
