People born on February 11 feel they were sent to this world for one purpose only; to improve the lives of those around them. In their minds, both people and things are always in need of improvement or an upgrade. They often have an earnest quality about them, and an energy and drive that makes others want to learn from them. They also have a talent for invention and enjoy finding new ways to make life easier for others around them. They do this not for material benefit or even recognition but because they believe that the less stress and discomfort people have, the more they can devote themselves to more meaningful and spiritual pursuits.

Although they prefer to motivate by example rather than words, people born on this day have a knack for making others feel good about themselves. Their curious and inventive mind means they have a great need for intellectual stimulation; their current absorption in a project or social group should not, however, make them neglect close personal relationships. Thinking of themselves as improvers and educators, they should understand that not everyone appreciates or wants their help. Some people like to work out for themselves what will make their life easier and they may get resentful if another person tries to point things out, especially if they do so in a blunt manner. It is important for people born on this day to develop their intuition and sensitivity toward others. Fortunately, between the ages of nineteen and thirty-eight there is an emphasis on emotional sensitivity; but after the age of thirty-nine directness toward others takes center stage and it is more important than ever that they learn to channel this directness positively and sensitively.

With their inventive mind and sharp insight into what a situation or a person needs, there is little doubt that people born on this day (as long as they can master the art of diplomacy) will make a mark on the world by helping and educating others.

Love Loyalty and trust

People born on February 11 value their personal freedom and need space to breathe in a relationship but they are also firm believers in loyalty and trust. They are easygoing and entertaining and their need for intellectual stimulation will often lead them toward unorthodox or unusual individuals. People born on this day love tenderly and passionately and will use their strong will to help and support those they love.

Health The high life

People born on this day often find it tough to understand why people don’t agree with their point of view; this can cause them considerable psychological stress. The support of partner, family and friends will help them work through this problem but they may also benefit from counseling. There is also a danger that their love for the high life can lead to weight problems and sexual adventures that can be damaging to their health. Although they may find a healthy diet and regular exercise routine difficult to maintain, they need to understand the strong links between mental, emotional and physical health. Meditating on an amethyst crystal or wearing or surrounding themselves with the color violet will help keep their mood balanced and their step lively.

Career Born inventors

These people are attracted toward any career that involves education, or personal and social development. They are inventive and progressive, making great inventors, computer programmers, and architects. In business, employers will appreciate their willingness to embrace new ideas and they also work well as advisors, specialists, or freelancers. Alternatively, they may devote themselves to charity work, or psychology, philosophy, or spirituality where they can make a difference to people’s lives.

Destiny To break new ground and experiment

The life path of people born on this day is to understand that everyone—including themselves—needs to mess up now and again as it is an important part of the human experience. Once they have learned to become less critical of themselves and others, their destiny is to break new ground and experiment with original concepts.
