Luck maker

Treat yourself

Try to devote at least one day a week to something you really want: a book, a film, a haircut. Ensure it makes you feel good; the better you feel, the greater your chances of attracting luck.

People born on February 20 are often thoughtful and receptive personalities, with the ability to immediately tune into the moods of those around them, adjusting their reactions instantly. Highly ambitious, they are sure to stand out in their career, at home, or on the social scene. They have an appealing personality and an easy charm, but it’s impossible to dismiss them as superficial because behind their looks and charm there is always great intelligence.

People with a February 20 birthday have a great deal of compassion, instinctively dealing with anyone—whatever their background or social status—with great understanding and warmth. In some cases they can become over-sensitive and impressionable, unable to separate their own emotions from the emotions of other people. This is because they identify so much with the viewpoint of others that they risk losing their own perspective in the process. It is vitally important for them to learn to protect themselves from over-identification. Before the age of thirty, this tendency to merge completely with other people is emphasized, but after the age of thirty they become more assertive, confident and self-protective.

There is a danger when people born on this day do become more aware and confident of their ability to instinctively relate to others that they can misuse it. It is important therefore for them to learn not to compromise themselves or take advantage of others in the single-minded pursuit of their goals.

Those people born on this day who remain true to their principles and who learn to make their receptivity work for and not against them have remarkable potential to make a difference and to be highly valued by others. They are rarely happy to sit on the sidelines and desperately want to make their mark; although they have all the drive, intelligence and charisma they need to climb right to the top, what they don’t often realize is that simply being themselves already makes a huge difference; this is because when they are around, people just feel better about themselves.

On the dark side

Indecisive, hypersensitive, impressionable

At your best

Intelligent, appealing, intuitive

Love Little flower

People born on February 20 can be extremely sensitive when it comes to affairs of the heart and they need to find a partner who understands this. Every detail is important to them and a missed phone call or a few misplaced words can send them into a downward spiral. When they do fall in love they make understanding and passionate lovers. There can be a tendency to put their lover on a pedestal and it is important for them to understand that everyone has faults.

Health Learn to say no

It is important for people born on this day to avoid become drained, anxious, stressed, depressed, or burned out because they are giving so much to others or taking on board the emotions of others. They should also find ways to avoid turning to drink, drugs and comfort eating as an escape, and would benefit considerably from substituting relaxation techniques such as meditation, natural remedies and herbal teas for those tranquillizers and copious amounts of alcohol. As well as moderate to vigorous exercise several times a week, plenty of sleep is also recommended for the sensitive people born on this day. Wearing, meditating on or surrounding themselves with the color yellow will build their self-confidence and encourage optimism.

Career Born healers/givers

The giving personality of people born on this day may draw them toward careers in medicine or entertainment, music or the arts where they can give to an audience. Being receptive and versatile, they tend to thrive in whatever career they choose but music, dancing, health and healing work, and all kinds of public relations roles have particular appeal.

Destiny To inspire others by giving

The life path of people born on this day is to learn to set boundaries. Once they have become more self-aware and assertive, their destiny is to inspire and influence others with their giving presence.
