Luck maker

Act naturally

Lucky people never try to be something they are not, as this alienates others rather than getting them on your side. So be yourself and tell it like it is.

People born on February 21 have a creative, individual mind and a dominating presence. They feel most comfortable when taking the lead and least comfortable when required to follow. Their fierce independence may be a result of a tough childhood where rules, regulations or expectations often took precedence over real intimacy.

People born on this day may spend many years trying out various occupations or roles, often feeling that they don’t quite fit in and occasionally reacting childishly as a form of rebellion. It is only when they understand that the key to their success is to be themselves and to lead and inspire others with their forceful presence that they truly come into their own. Fortunately, around the age of twenty-nine they tend to become more assertive and adventurous, and begin to enjoy greater self-awareness.

Although they may have developed a tough outer shell to protect them from the outside world, those who know them well will know that they can also be extremely sensitive, even shy. This sensitivity can in part explain their need to push themselves forward, as they may have suffered disappointments at the hands of others. It is important that they learn to be true to themselves—it is also important that they do not become too aggressive or cynical in the process, for their emotions lie at the center of their being and it is their sensitivity that can give them sudden flashes of inspiration.

People born on this day have great dreams, and once they learn to listen to their hearts as well as their heads and to respect the ideas of others there is little that can prevent them getting exactly what they want out of life. Wherever they go, others tend to regard them as a tower of strength and will often look to them for motivation and inspiration. This is because when they have settled on a chosen course they are a shining example of how it is possible to rise above challenges and criticism by respecting your own judgment.

On the dark side

Immature, detached, inflexible

At your best

Creative, influential, honest

Love Rescue me

People born on this day need both freedom and commitment in a relationship. They love the thrill of the chase and will probably have numerous partners but a part of them also longs to feel safe in one committed relationship. They have powerful emotions and a sensitive heart with a lot of love to give; they long to be rescued by that special someone who can provide them with both excitement and stability.

Health Go Green

February 21 people can be prone to mood swings and—if these aren’t properly handled—depression. It is extremely important for them to eat a healthy balanced diet, packed full of the mood-boosting nutrients found in oily fish, nuts, seeds, leafy green vegetables, legumes, and whole grains. They should avoid drugs, alcohol, nicotine, and any addictive or toxic substances. Plenty of exercise, preferably in the fresh air so they get the mood-boosting effects of daylight, is highly recommended as are breathing exercises, meditation or perhaps counseling if they find themselves unable to deal with feelings of anger, fear, guilt, or disappointment. Reading, wearing or meditating on the colors green and blue will help restore natural balance and healing.

Career Born composers

People born on this day make great leaders and any career that allows them to motivate, inspire or lead others will appeal; for example, management, politics or teaching. They may also be drawn toward careers where they can make their own rules, such as music, arts and entertainment. They can also make especially good conductors. Often rather dexterous, they may also be interested in working with their hands, so careers in design, especially costume design, construction or building, may appeal.

Destiny To inspire others to reach their full potential

The life path of people born on this day is to trust themselves to be able to take on board the advice of others. Once they are able to do that, their destiny is to motivate and inspire others by their own example to reach their full potential.
