February 14 Birthday Personality: The Vulnerable Wit

The Vulnerable Wit

Your greatest challenge is…

to keep confidential information to yourself

The way forward is…

to understand that the trust and respect of others are far more rewarding than the short-lived thrill of being the center of attention.

You’re drawn to people born on…

May 22 to June 21

You both have piercing insight and if you remain honest with each other this can create an intense and fulfilling union.

Luck maker

Don’t have enemies

Lucky people regard everyone they meet as potential luck makers. You never know who could eventually be of help. There should always be time for politeness, sensitivity, decency, tact, and trust.

Charming, intelligent and warm-hearted, people born on February 14 are shrewd observers of human foibles. They think quickly and analytically, tending to express themselves succinctly in great one-liners.

The incisive wit of these people can work both for and against them. Their biting sense of humor can make them wonderful and entertaining company, and formidable allies in the workplace, but they can also be blunt to the point of sarcasm, driving others away with deeply wounding comments. Their sarcasm tends to surface most when they feel impatient or frustrated because others aren’t attending to their demands. And because other people tend to reveal personal information to them, they need to be careful that they don’t become gossips.

Jovial banter can be a way for people born on this day to camouflage their true emotions. They are typically the first to cry when a sad song is being played or to feel heartbreaking empathy with those in the world who are suffering misfortune. This vulnerability can often surprise those around them as they often expect someone with such a cool and incisive wit to be emotionally stronger.

Those born on this day should apply some of their penetrating insight to themselves as well as others, and understand that their emotions bubble quickly to the surface because they have an important message to deliver. They should listen to that message because the strong reactions they have to the misfortunes of others are often a sign of their own repressed emotion searching for an outlet. Fortunately, around the age of thirty-six there is a turning point, emphasizing that they should become more self-aware and assertive regarding their own emotions.

A lamb in wolf’s clothing, people born on February 14 may appear tough but they don’t take themselves too seriously. This isn’t to say they are superficial; there is great emotional depth behind their banter. It simply means they are great company to keep because, whenever they are around, life always seems easier, lighter and much, much happier.

On the dark side

Insensitive, cutting, demanding

At your best

Witty, astute, engaging

Love Mischievous flirt

Not surprisingly, people born on February 14 have the ability to seduce others with humor and their live-for-the-moment approach to life. They will probably have quite a few relationships before they finally settle down with someone who can rise to their verbal challenges but who can also offer them loyalty, honesty and loving security.

Health See green

People born on this day may give the appearance of being cool and in control of their lives but they can often become stressed because they are repressing their insecurities behind a tough exterior. It is important for them to find ways to work through their insecurities, such as exercise and chats with friends and loved ones, and to find ways to calm their mind. Breathing exercises and meditation are recommended to help them to do this. It goes without saying that they should make sure they eat a healthy diet and get plenty of exercise. They should also make sure they stay away from too much alcohol and nicotine. If they try to maintain their relaxed image by taking mindaltering drugs, they may become susceptible to addictive substances. Meditating on, wearing or surrounding themselves with the color pale green will help them manage their emotions.

Career Born talk-show host

These people make ideal interviewers, magazine editors, radio and TV hosts, or networkers in large organizations. Alternatively banking, insurance or the stock market may appeal, as might writing, publishing or the entertainment world. Their ability to empathize with the suffering of others may also draw them toward social reform, humanitarian work or work in education. In business, whether self-employed or working for others, they will use their verbal skills and personality to promote themselves, sometimes to the very top.

Destiny To use words to inspire others

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to use their excellent communication skills positively rather than negatively. Once they understand this, their destiny is to influence and inspire those around them with the power of their words.
